Meet Dr. Antonio Acero. Heir to Spain’s wealthiest family, world-renowned physicist, and dedicated bachelor. While on vacation in southern Mexico, Antonio discovers an ancient Mayan tablet. Local legends say it contains magical properties, properties that could put his stalling research on the map.
But is this really his lucky break?
When Antonio attempts to put the tablet to use, he’ll discover that Fate has other plans. Her name is Ixtab, and she’s quite possibly the deadliest deity who ever lived.
Review: I couldn’t wait for this book to come out and when I finally got to read it I wasn’t disappointed. I just hate that it took a while to get it. In the other books of this series it usually is centered on one couple the most but in this one we have several. We get to see what is happening with the others that we just can’t get enough of.
The main couple in this book is Ixtab who is the Goddess of Suicide and I would hate to be her. Antonio is a succubus, well he has a little in him at least. It just seems when these two get together it all changes. At first they really can’t stand each other. Ixtab is really nice and hates what she has to do. She doesn’t do anything on purpose unless it is someone that really deserves it. We also get to see what happens next for Penelope and Kinich since Penelope has taken over his Sun duties while Kinich is now a vampire. We get to see a little of Chaam and Maggie. We also get to see if the other God and vampires will be released. If that is not all we find out that Zac is the God of Temptation and has been using his powers on Penelope and Kinich. The biggest thing of all is Cimil. I don’t know if she is bad or good. I do know that she is very crazy.
Now that we know that this book has a lot going on in it and the author does a great job with it. I never felt like I was missing anything or there was just too much going on. I loved how she decided to put all of this people in together. I know that I first started reading these books just to see what they were about. The title is what really caught my eye. It made you think that it was something mysterious. I had to read it just to see what I would be getting myself in for. I really hate that this series will soon be over. I can’t believe that I will just read two more books and that will be all. I will forever miss my Gods, Goddesses and Vampires. I have fallen in love with each character and they are all different and unique in their own way.
Even though we get to see how the couples are doing we still know that their are some mysteries still to solve. I just don’t see how this series can get all the answers to everything in the next two books. I really hope that Cimil is working for the good and she becomes sane and can find someone to love her. I know that it would take someone special. If I had to pick my favorite one I would have to pick the first one. Just because it was the start of the series and I feel in love with the characters. Every single couple have touched something in me. I can even see some of them as being my family members. I know that if I had lived as long as these gods and goddesses have that I would be going crazy myself.
If you haven’t read this series I would tell you to start it today and fall in love with some really great people. You will even have some alpha males that will melt your heart.
