Deidre Knight - Red Kiss

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.

River Kassandros is one of those warriors, he was born into servitude a couple of centuries ago and that never changed when they accepted the deal. River became yet again, the servant of his friend Alex Petrakos. River’s extremely unique because he can shape-shift into any weapon Alex needs. But something went wrong in the last battle, so he spends too long in blade form, lying on the bottom of the river. He cannot shift back, so he hopes that someone will find him before its too late.

Emma Lowery is on a camping trip with her best friend, but he left her alone on the camping site, without her cell phone. There is a huge storm coming her way and it doesn’t feel right. When she’s trying to find a way back home, she begins to hear a voice asking for help. Emma cannot ignore the calling and is pulled toward the river, where she’s diving up a blade. Because of her unique family gift, Emma knows this is not a usual blade, and she finds a way to shift it back into this handsome stranger.

Red Kiss by Deidre Knight is the second novel in her Gods of Midnight series and I only can say that I loved it. Deidre Knight created a fabulous world with these warriors and the only thing you can do is let them all into your heart.

Emma and River meet each other under the worst circumstances. River is trapped in blade form and hopes Emma can turn him back into human, long enough to fight the demons who are after her, because she dived up him from the river. Emma is running from her gift ever since her twin sister died tragically, but she knows River needs her to fight this battle. And when she finds out that her cousin Shayanna is married to River’s friend Alex and that her other cousins are fighting these demons too, she knows she has to embrace her talent again and help them.

Of all the Warriors River stole my heart from the first novel Red Fire and that hasn’t changed. He really wants so desperately to find a way to be free and not being a servant anymore. He knows the others warriors are standing behind his decision and the only way is to become completely human. To see the struggle in River to stay and fight with his companions or choose the love of his life is so overwhelming, it will bring some tears to your eyes.

I truly can say that I’m a huge fan of this series and I cannot wait for the next novel to come out.
