Publisher's Summary

Nick, leader of the half-breeds and the last true hero, has spent his life fighting a dark pull toward the gods - a pull he now knows is linked to his father Krónos and the Titan's plan to escape from the Underworld. But Nick's hidden powers are coveted by more than just his father. Imprisoned by Hades, Nick battles every form of torture imaginable as the god schemes to break him. Only one thing keeps him sane - one woman who gives him the strength to fight the relentless darkness. But she has a dangerous plan of her own, and as Nick's powers grow stronger, even she might not be enough to alter his destiny.

Finally We Get Nick's Story!

Since he was introduced in Marked, the first book in the Eternal Guardians series, I have been itching for more Nick. While we have seen him in every book and even got his POV briefly, nothing prepared me for his darkness. Oh, Nick, you dirty, dirty boy. *swoons*

So much time had passed since Bound, book six in the Eternal Guardians series, was released that I had forgotten very important details. I started Twisted and was completely lost. So what's a girl to do? I decided it was a fine time for a series re-read and when I discovered that Twisted would be released in audio format even though it was self-pubbed, I decided to feed my audiobook addiction and buy the whole series. I'm soooo glad I did. While I was slow to warm to her, Elisabeth Wiley ended up being a great narrator for this series and I thoroughly enjoyed my re-read.

I will admit, Twisted wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Elisabeth Naughton is phenomenal when it comes to world building and maybe due to Zagreus' lair being somewhat lame and tamer than I was expecting, I was a tad disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the torture was definitely there, it was just much less torturey than what we dealt with in Gryphon's book, Enslaved. I'm not saying that Nick was treated well while in Zagreus' prison, but we certainly didn't get the details that I needed to feel that Nick had really suffered there. Due to that and how easily the book was resolved, I didn't enjoy Twisted as much as I did the last couple of books in the series.

All that said, Twisted was super smexy as well as action packed, I really liked Cynna, Ari was a fantabulous addition to the mythology, and I'm beyond thrilled that Ms. Naughton decided to continue this series on without a publisher. There are sooooo many great series that are cut short because they don't get extended contracts and this is a series that would have left many unsatisfied if it had just ended. So I want to say thank you, Elisabeth, for continuing on with this world and making your readers very happy. I truly would have been heartbroken had I not gotten more of the Eternal Guardians.

Good grief.. SPOILERS, maybe..

Any additional comments?

This was far from my favorite of the Eternal Guardians. In fact, if I hadn't loved the other books so much I might have given this 1 star. I just could not like Cynna. As far as I'm concerned she WAS just Zagreus's slut, I don't care if it was willing or not. For 6 months she tortured Nick at the devils' spawn request and we were supposed to like her? When Nick was in the other books I really liked him but in this one, not so much. It was almost like their story was built around their dark and painful sex. I mean, they both had their turn at being chained while doing their "business." If this is the route EN is taking I'm through with her EG books.

As to the narrator: Ms. Wiley did a wonderful job. Every one had their own voice, whether it was male or female. She could use a little more emotion but I was still pleased with her narration.
