Humble baker turned supernatural Alena Budrene is lovely and lethal, and for the first time, she’s owning it. Finally rid of her low-life ex-husband, she’s free to date sexy vampire mob boss Remo, who respects her as both a Supe and a woman. She’s on good terms with her difficult mother, and she’s growing comfortable with her powers.
But just when it seems things are falling into place for Alena, Hera strikes again: the Aegrus virus rages across Seattle, threatening the life of everyone in its path—including Remo, infected by Hades. The only way to stop the carnage is to face Hera and her army in a no-prisoners battle to determine the fate of the human race—and Alena’s future.
In a sweeping voyage from the Seattle bar scene to a netherworld populated by murderous gods and monsters, Alena confronts one adversary after another on a quest to set the world right for both humans and Supes and demonstrate her power—to the gods and to herself—once and for all.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
The first two books in this series were good yet I had a hard time truly getting into books that are about Greek Mythology and that have vampires. Book 3 Hisses and Honey blew all that away and I absolutely loved it! Hisses and Honey is so fast paced, I was hooked from the beginning. I read the entire book in one afternoon.
Alena has finally come into her own, she has accepted who she is and she is FINALLY one Kick Ass Chick. Yet she still is vulnerable and loving with all the best qualities she had as a human with none of the weaknesses.
I loved the way book 3 tied everything together so smoothly and we got a little of all the big hitters. Hera, Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, etc. Not to mention an evil Hydra that Alena must battle, which was awesome!
Overall I was thrilled with book three in the series and I really loved it, despite it not being about topics I really want to read. That is saying something!
