Deidre Knight - Red Fire

Two thousand and five hundred years ago three hundred Spartan warriors sacrificed their lives at Thermopylae. Seven warriors became immortal when they accepted a deal and drank from the River Styx, binding their immortality and their vow to Ares, the God of war.

After centuries of fighting, Alex Petrakos is tired of answering to a higher power. But unfortunately he’s being summoned by King Leonidas, the oracle of Delphi, their guide wants to speak to him and only Ajax is able to hear or see her. The oracle sends Ajax to Savannah, Georgia to find Shayanna Angel, who appears to be his long awaited soul mate. And it seems he arrives just in time when he finds her in battle with his worst enemy, Sable.

Shayanna Angel just lost her mother and is trying hard to understand the letter she found about her heritage. Her demon hunting brothers are keeping secrets from her, thinking they were protecting her, but fate have decided otherwise because she’s been able to see demons on her own. Now her own gift guides her to the cemetery where she faces evil demon Sable. A black-winged angel comes to her rescue and Shayanna has to decide quickly if he is on her side or not.

Red Fire by Deidre Knight is the first novel in her Gods of Midnight series and I loved it. I’m already a huge fan of her other series and couldn’t wait to read this new one and she didn’t disappoint me. She created a fabulous world with seven Spartan warriors and the only thing you can do is love them.

Ajax Petrakos is one of the seven immortal warriors who drank from the River Styx and fought for centuries to protect mankind. Now is tired of answering to the calls for the higher power. But this last journey takes him to his long awaited soul mate and he will do anything to protect her from his worst enemy Sable, even if this means giving up his own immortal life. Shayanna Angels just found out that she’s been able to see demons on her own and not only the males in her family. She wants to be in the family business and hunts demon with her two older brothers, but they refuse. So she goes out on her own and meets her black-winged soul mate.

The other five Spartan Warriors River, Kalias, Aristos, Nikos, Straton and their King Leonidas are great secondary characters. Especially River stole my heart, he is bound to Ajax Petrakos and can turn into any weapon Ajax needs. Even thought it’s not aloud for any other warrior to interfere in Ajax’s quest River finds an ally in Shayanna to protect Ajax.

I cannot wait till the next novel Red Kiss comes out to see what will happens to River.
