    I really enjoyed this third book in the series and loved this story about Gina, the tomboyand her mission to protect Zach Hanson, self proclaimed nerd and computer genius The Egyptian Ancient, Sekhmet, has decided that as The Destructor, she is going to destroy the world and rebuild it to her own specifications and to achieve this goal, she has roped in the Sons of Gaia to help her out In order to do this, she is sending out her SOGs to take over the bodies of various people, who can t I really enjoyed this third book in the series and loved this story about Gina, the tomboyand her mission to protect Zach Hanson, self proclaimed nerd and computer genius The Egyptian Ancient, Sekhmet, has decided that as The Destructor, she is going to destroy the world and rebuild it to her own specifications and to achieve this goal, she has roped in the Sons of Gaia to help her out In order to do this, she is sending out her SOGs to take over the bodies of various people, who can then cause panic and destruction where she wants it and this is where Zach comes in He is an inventor of a gadget known as the Toy, which in the wrong hands can cause a great deal of worldwide damage and chaos, only he hasn t thought of that when he made the gadget what else did he think the US government could do with it Gina has to stop the SOGs from taking over Zach s body and vows to protect him He, in spite of all his wealth and knowledge, has never really considered needing protection before and readily accepts Gina s offer, despite knowing nothing about her so called security firm After he gets shocked by a SOG twice, Gina takes him to Avalon, the s home, where she has to explain to him what is really going on He readily accepts her magickal world and soon starts to develop feelings for this strong, powerful woman She reciprocates the feelings, but believes that as soon as Sekhmet s threat is over, so will anything between her and Zach, so there seems little point in taking their relationship any further How will Zach, a mortal, be able to stay with the immortalTo complicate their relationship just a bit , Richard, a SOG who has switched sides, also has feelings for Gina and doesn t seem to understand the word no at all I did think the petty digs between Zach and Richard were quite immature, but maybe love makes them petty Things come to a head when Richard does something unforgivable and he then betrays Gina in ways she didn t think he ever would It was good to see the other s in this one as well and catch up on Rebecca and Artair and Megan and Johann from the previous two books I loved Beagan and Dolan s transformation as well Who knew they could do such a thing I did like the romance between Gina and Zach maybe it moved a bit too fast at times, but that what a PNR does in my book I m not sure I necessarily agreed with what Zach did in the end or how without speaking to Gina, but glad he did it as it meant he can now be with Gina.Looking forward to reading the last book in the series about the last , Sarita as well

    4.5 out of 5 This third book in the series features the air , a young woman who has seldom known stability in her life even though the pristess of Ix Chel, her patroness goddess and who she addressed as aunt during her growing up, was a woman who loved her and taught her to be open and up front about stuff, a woman who is independent and self reliant and who is tall and stately in stature She is not an easy woman to know and because of her size has taken her lumps when growing up 4.5 out of 5 This third book in the series features the air , a young woman who has seldom known stability in her life even though the pristess of Ix Chel, her patroness goddess and who she addressed as aunt during her growing up, was a woman who loved her and taught her to be open and up front about stuff, a woman who is independent and self reliant and who is tall and stately in stature She is not an easy woman to know and because of her size has taken her lumps when growing up Being the odd kid out is never easy However, the issues that caused hurt and insecurity in her youth are the very ones now that give her strength and purpose Her attraction to a human has thrown her for a loop The other s who have married are in relationships with the Sentinels, immortals who are present to guide the s in their training This is a complicated story that is stand alone yet is strongly connected to the two previous stories in the series The author does a very good job of filling in missing information for readers who have not read the previous novels and does so with an economy of words Yet this story is much grittier, very edgy, featuring a woman who is in every sense of the wordthan just herstatus a square peg in a round hole That she is attracted to a man who has always felt out of sync with society is not unusual, yet their relationship certainly moves along with stops and starts, testifying to the difficulties they both face when relating to others Yet Ms James writes a compelling novel complicated, lots of layers, personalities that are truly weird, with bits and pieces of ancient mythology from So America, Egypt, and Greece The feuding goddesses are a kick and the appearance of Ra, the supposed father of all the gods according to Egyptian mythology, is another surprise All in all, it will be a fun read for the fantasy fan and for those of us who just simply are delighted with having another Sandy James novel in our possession
