Hell hath no fury like a goddess scorned…
As Champion, Carita of Bel Auryn thought she would spend her days fighting demons. Instead, she is drawn into the latest scheme of the Moon Goddess, Ruby: a contest to choose a man who will have the “honour” of fathering her child. When Ruby encourages Carita to choose a man for herself, she picks the man she is most drawn to–and immediately regrets it.
Lucian Veradayne is the Lord of Death. He knows he must win Ruby’s game at any cost. It doesn’t matter that he has avoided her for two thousand years. Nor that she tried to kill their first child. And it really doesn’t matter that he would much rather woo Carita. The Soul Well has given Lucian a prophecy: he and Ruby must have another child. A child who will save the world.
Dealing with their mutual attraction will be the least of Lucian and Carita’s problems. They are not the only ones who have been drawn into Ruby’s game. Someone else wants to win. Someone who wants Ruby dead. Will Carita and Lucian be able to protect her long enough for a victor to be named? And if they succeed, will they be able to walk away from each other to ensure the prophecy is fulfilled?
Sealer’s Game is a 55,000 word fantasy romance novella about the King of the Underworld, a kick-butt warrior priestess, and a ruthless goddess who will stop at nothing to get her own way. It contains language, descriptions of violence, and sexual themes that may not be appropriate for all readers. Recommended for ages 18+.
Well, this was a really interesting take on our old mythological gods and putting a different twist on it.
I finished Sealer’s Game in one go, and I already wanted the next one. I have to say that I very much enjoyed Carita as a character and I am really looking forward to what she will do next.
Other than Carita, you have Ruby and Lucian (both gods) Ruby, to be honest, I still do not know what to make of her… sometimes I like her and sometimes I could feel me wondering what was going on underneath the surface. I mean a character that keeps you guessing is not all bad in my book. However, my second like with Carita is of course Lucian.
I always debate with myself as to doing this, but I do not want to give out spoilers, but I have to say that I did love some interesting twists and enjoy the more obvious ones. For a first book of a new series, I really loved it and it set the next one really well. There is enough of some sort of closure to keep me patient but at the same time, you know me I need to know what happens next stat!!
For of those of you who enjoy Myth/Fantasy, I think you will have a good time reading Sealer’s Game. I know I did and as I mentioned above, I cannot wait for book 2. I do see a lot of potential there and and fingers crossed book 2 will be even better.
I really would like to see the evolution of some characters, mostly the godly ones because that will say a lot about character development and adding dimensions to them, they are ancient, so …. tricky tricky!
It was frankly a quick read (at least for me) and I am going to be very highly recommending it. Please do not make me wait eons for book 2 and since I am talking about this, do we know what the plan is in terms of number of books in the series? From what I have seen 3 could work, but I would expect more… what do you think?
If you have read it, or planning to read, please tell me what you think!
