Publisher's Summary

Morgan has been banned from hunting until she learns to control her powers and her impulsive nature. Her team is so focused on her training, she feels more alone and alienated than ever. She must make the heartbreaking decision to stay and fight for the men who mean everything to her or turn her back on the Academy to survive.  

But the choice is taken from her when the Academy is viciously attacked and Morgan is abducted and dumped into the primordial realm. Abandoned and unable to get back to the Academy, Morgan must take a crash course in survival in this alien world. 

As she investigates the deadly mist sweeping through the realm, she is horrified to discover her team has followed her, determined to earn back her trust. With their lives in danger, Morgan will do whatever it takes to save them, even if it means entering Tartarus and uncovering the secrets of the forgotten gods. 

With the cure in hand, they must defeat monsters from myths and legends - and their worst nightmares - and escape the gates of hell or risk becoming forever trapped and forced to watch the destruction of their world.  

Contains mature themes.

love this book

I've been in love with this book since the first chapter. The narrator does a good job, although I'm a little put off by how she does accents but that's my only comment. Full of fascinating lore and wonderful world building, I can't get enough of this book. Easily one of my favorite series

Amazing second in series

Love this slow burn RH. I love the friendship of the group and how even when things get strained, hard or crazy they make up and carry on. This story is full of action, and more hints toward Morgans heritage. Downloading book 3 now.

Heart of the Assassin

Morgan and her guys must figure out how to save the world without getting killed in the process. I really enjoyed this book and how Morgan has grown. She finally gets the nerve to tell the guys about her insecurities and things change between them all. I can't wait to find out more about her powers and what happens next

What a rollercoaster ride!

This second book threw a lot of new characters and places at us in quick succession. There was so much going on that it became a bit overwhelming at times. The characters leave the academy and the entire book is about their crazy journey to save the world.

There is a lot of action but I felt like the story doesn’t flow as smooth as it should have been. The world development was brief and a lot of crazy goes in these new adventures. Some of the turns and twists did not make that much sense to me.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

There is still a lot of work that needs to be put into the relationship between our heroine and her men. They seem so disconnected.

Overall, it is a a good book and kept my attention for most of it. I’m hoping things will slow down a bit in the next one so there can be more character development & world building. Their relationships also needs some time to grow and strengthen.

I loved some of the new sidekicks/animals introduced in this book. I’m looking forward to the third book

So glad I stumbled upon this series

The characters are relatable, the bond and connections with each member of the harem build up in a way that is believable, and heroin of the series amazingly strong and smart and doesn’t need to be rescued....what more do you need? I love it.

And the kitchen sink

Half of this book is our heroine's internal worrying, the same thing over and over. Then we get plenty of action, but it all seems pasted together from the usual - the giant spider, mosquito pixies, the insane mastermind, accidentally going over a waterfall, a medusa, a dragon - oh, yes and let's not forget to throw in some zombies! And then there's the worshipful attitude of her harem. It's all just too, too much. Our heroine is morphing and there's plenty more places for a story to go, but I doubt I'll go along for the ride.

Girl Power and Love

This one was a great contrast to the first book. The first book focused on how independent Morgan was and how shed always been alone, focusing on her character growth through letting the guys into her heart. This book focused more on they guys showing her that they will always have her back and to them she is their whole world. Granted she hates being smothered and protected she soon learns that they are treating her as she wishes and would/will treat them if the rolls were reversed. I do like that in this one is action after action instead of long striding breaks where they have "free" time to get to know one another better. The world that they are in and has been created for us though the books is very quick and fast pace. You wouldn't find yourselves having the leisure to "chill" so the fact that this book moves very rapidly gives it a more realistic since of time. Very well write, love the 4 new characters and am excited to read more :)

awesome

Great book! Even better narration. If you are into fantasy reverse harem (one girl, lots of guys) then this is the perfect book.

Dont waste your money or Time. Sorry

where do i even begin. the first book was pretty decent. i actually enjoyed it so when i was ready for book 2 i did my research on whether the RH aspect would be a little more or a quick burn. fyi its not. So despite the plethora of reviews which sound almost like mine now i thought naw, ill give this book a chance. i should have listened to the reviews. The FMC is annoying. no other words to describe it. Absolutely every choice she makes gets her guys injured or captured etc. Yet somehow she is still their world. its almost like she literally has no forethought at all. i really despised her by the end of maybe chapter 12. it was aganising trying to push through the rest of the chapters. the story seemed disjointed, rushed. too many ideas at once. the only word i can describe it was chaotic. Maybe annoying as well.

I honestly hate to leave a bad review because i admire the first book. this book fell woefully short of the mark. I will probably buy any other books in the series but that's just my OCD, i cannot leave series unfinished.

*Heart Of The Assassins*

For some reason, this book is not as well put together as the first one, I had a hard time following the story, it's all over the place, it was scattered and didn't get the same height as the first book. Traci Odom is excellent as always.
