Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades-Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world. Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her. The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this book is entertaining and nice to listen to because it is refreshingly simple and we'll thought out.

What did you like best about this story?

The battle scene at the end.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Debbie Andreen?

Maybe, she was ok.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

To become a God.

Any additional comments?

Eva Pohler puts a new spin on Greek Gods in this light and entertaining novel. While other stories might make the gods seems harsh, overly powerful and destructive, this book seems to make you feel like the gods could be one of your best friends. I missed an overall feeling of suspense throughout the book, although the ending made up for that feeling with a very imaginative battle scene. The love story is good, and the action overall is a little slow for my taste, but the characters are likable. Definitely worth reading!

I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely. Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful - a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

This book is riveting! As the title suggests..it twists you into gut wrenching agony and fear and turns you into a writhing mass of need due to its in depth story line. It blew me away!! I was so mesmerized I couldn't stop listening to it, page after page of wants, needs, sexual exploration and fear that will take your breath away. This book has it all and you will be begging for more just like Nora bending to her dark angels demands. Amazing!!

Anna Zaire's last installment in the Krinar Series brings an end to a fabulous story about love, loss and moving forward despite the struggles that present themselves. Long descriptions of events, and a host of new characters make you want more in the series, but Mrs. Zaire's wraps wrap up Mia and Korum's story beautifully.

Anna Zaire's second installment in the Krinar Series is a great addition to the series. Korum and Mia continue to fall deeper in love and further their trust of one another. But ...in the shadows an evil K plots to destroy their love by taking Mia for his own and end Korum once and for all. This book had me gripping my chair with action, and curling my toes during love scenes. Anna brings passion and suspense to the page. I absolutely loved it!

Anna Zaire's first installment in the Krinar Series is a great new story about a very intelligent alien species with mystery, suspense, and love. The authors descriptions draw you in but leave you in a space of suspense, building tension, mystery and desire that grow gradually but delightfully. Mia's "capture" makes her challenge her belief in herself society and where her loyalties lie in the human race. Does she help the resistance and go against the man she is falling for. His dark hair and eyes, dark skin, and hard body. The authors descriptions make you want to be her, experiencing confusion, passion, and fear. Don't wait to get this first installment in a series that is bound to make you want more in all areas of life.
