Publisher's Summary

Theron - Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He's the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.

From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn't exist in real life - silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something. Her. She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron's duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn't strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes; to tear himself away from the heat of her body. As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

©2011 Elisabeth Naughton (P)2013 Tantor

    "Outstanding"

    This story is so well written that I didn't want to put it down once I began it. I'm glad I waited to listen to this series for Book 1 Marked, because it's this one that gives the foundation of what the Guardians are and what role they play in their world. Now, when I listen to the others, I'll know what the narrator is talking about when she mentions other the other characters.
    This is a love story told with true passion and love. I, for one, enjoy a good love story.

    "Great stories but I hated the narrator"
    Would you try another book from Elisabeth Naughton and/or Elizabeth Wiley?

    I have read all of Naughton's books it is a great series but after the first book I quit listening due to the narrator. I would give audible a miss on this one and just read the books...

    "I thought it was kind of average"

    I liked the theme of the book, I am a huge mythology buff but this book seemed to be constantly beat around the bush...and talk about some serious coitus interruptus! Geez I have three kids and I'm not event interrupted that much. Then after the big climax the book really fizzed out. Now,I have high expectations when it comes to Greek mythology. I had to translate Jason and the Argonauts in Latin class, I only passed that class because of my interest in the mythology, and I did not like how the book portrayed Persephone at all. She is the sweet daughter of Demeter and is the goddess of vegetation. She was kidnapped by her uncle Hades and was forced to be the queen of the underworld. Hades tricked her to eat the pomegranate seeds( a fruit from the underworld) before Zeus forced Hades to return Persephone to Demeter. Since Persephone ingested the seeds it required her to have to spend one-third of the year in the underworld with Hades ( hence the season of winter) only in later writings did it go from three months to six months. The author made her and evil awful goddess and I can't get behind that, it just rubs me the wrong way.

    "This just wasn't for me, I tried"
    What disappointed you about Marked?

    I guess I'm just not into Mythology. The story was ok and I probably could have continued, but hated this boring narrator!


    What could Elisabeth Naughton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe have a more exciting start. I kept losing interest early on, and would restart to see if my opinion would change - it did not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Wiley’s performances?

    No thank you.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    it's clever and interesting, but would be so much better to grab you if the narrator wasn't so bad!

    "Frustration!"

    Couldn't get past the stilted, over-annunciated narration. Ratings on story 3 only as I can't far enough to review. Won't buy anything else with the same narrator.

    "Great series, great narrator, worth the credits!"
    Any additional comments?

    Although I’m already on the 4th book, I thought it would be more helpful to write my review on the first book to encourage the new possible readers.

    I love this series! No two books are alike and in each book the story-line evolves. YES! These books have an actual story-line and are not just books about sex, sex and more sex. The focus of the books is not just on the main character(s) in which it is written for, but involves characters from the previous book while introducing new characters. In each book you will see the characters’ relationships develop with a lot of twist and turns and that the heroics is not just one sided where the alpha males are always saving the day, but the female characters are strong with purpose and heroic as well.

    An excellently written book, performed well, & a ending that could lead to more but that resolved what had already been as well.

    Story
    "I really wanted to like this book..."

    I thought maybe it was just my mood so I retried listening two or three times. Now I have 2 hours left and I realize that I just do not like this book. The story does not develop until late in and even then it's lacking. I just kept hoping it would get better but it never did. I am curious about the rest of the series because they have such great reviews, so it makes me wonder if this is one of those series you have to get through the first book to get to the good books. I am debating trying book 2 but I'm not sure I want to use one of my credits for a book in a series I have not enjoyed so far.

    Story
    "Demons, Hades, Argonauts, Humans"

    I loved this story. Although Theron is supposed to wed another and hates humans. Fate has decreed that he will not only rescue Casey and human but she is his One. The Argonauts are the defenders of a hidden kingdom and guardians of the gates that keep others out but allows them to travel to earth and intermingle with humans. This intermingling produces off springs that are left to fend for themselves because the kings don't tell the Argonauts about them. Naturally this causes trouble between the two groups.
    Theron is a descendant of Hercules and when he goes about doings the kings business he discovers the off springs. What follows is descriptions of demon attacks, a god plotting revenge, Hades and his wife making bargains by telling half truths. Two sisters who find each other and so much more. Although there are many subplots they all weave together to create a great story. As on opening to another great series this is a good start.
