Good book. It is kind of rare to see books based on Egyptian mythology so this book was an interesting departure from most of the ones out there.

A cool short fantasy with Egyptian gods!

Sera is a lonely woman who spends her time healing animals as a veterinary nurse. She hides the fact that she is actually Serket, the Egyptian goddess of healing, but she has lost most of her powers over the years. Unexpectedly, one of her fellow gods finds her and asks for help. Will Sera help him and get pulled back into her old society?

This is a surprisingly meaty fantasy story in spite of being so short (2.5 hours). It is told in first person perspective only from the point of view of Serket. The romance subplot is sweet with closed-door love scenes, a writing choice that worked well. It would probably be rated PG if it were a movie. I loved how the gods' powers worked similarly those in Neil Gaiman's famous novel “American Gods”. When humans forgot their names and no longer worshipped them, the immortal gods' powers were severely reduced. When this happens, a goddess basically must live like a human. I really like Serket and Zed (I am unsure of the spelling). Serket is a gentle soul, but she has an inner strength and good moral fiber. I love the quick pacing of the story and the suspenseful scenes. I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants a short fantasy with shape-shifting Egyptian gods.

The female narrator did a very good job. She did a very good Egyptian-sounding accent for Zed, and he sounded like a sexy man. Minor characters sounded nicely distinctive. I am on the fence about the choice of accent for Serket. She speaks with a distinct London accent. Perhaps Serket has been living in London a long time (it is unclear in the story) but I think that Serket should have a trace of an Egyptian accent, or at least reacquire an Egyptian accent after being around Zed a while. Serket's English accent does sound pleasant, and the narrator properly conveys her gentle soul with her voice. Overall, I enjoyed the narration.

I received a free Audible audiocode via #AudiobookObsession, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Great shifter book

Sera is a great character that I fell in love with immediately. Such a good shifter book. My first Scorpion one. Sabrina is a very good narrator.

Quick listen, fun idea

Narrator does a good job fitting the characters and she has a nice accent.

Quick story about Sera, who is an Egyptian Goddess that finds herself in a bit of situation. Her healing powers have waned as people begin to remember her less and less, and someone is out to take her down. Sed, an Egyptian God, is investigating the poisoning of another God and it’s led him to Sera. The venom from Sera’s scorpions seems to be the cause, but there’s more to it than that. Liked the god scenario, but things did move a little slowly with the Egyptian mythology. Still an entertaining read, but I would’ve liked a bit more focus on the romance. I loved that Sera could change into a large scorpion; too cool! Fun premise. Overall, an enjoyable story.

Unique and Entertaining

I loved this, it's such a unique story and I loved the scorpions. The mythology is fascinating and I enjoyed that a lesser used God was the main, I can't think of a book i've read with Serket, I loved both Sera and Sed. I was enjoying the story so much I didn't want it to end.
Sabrina Sterling's narration was great and clear.

Fascinating!

What a fascinating tale. I was thoroughly engrossed, the two and a half hours flew by without notice. Laura Greenwood is an incredibly talented author with an extraordinary imagination. I love the premise of the storyline, it's refreshing, based on Egyptian mythology, making it quite intriguing.

Stellar narration by Sabrina Sterling, capturing the nuances of characters, bringing them to life. Overall this was a fantastic listen, and very enjoyable, one I highly recommend.

Zodiac shifters

This was an interesting story. It's based on Egyptian mythology which is a new thing for me. I liked the characters but hated that the story was so short. It had decent action and romance. Loved the narrator and her accent.

Paranormal Romance

Protectors of Poison: Scorpio by Laura Greenwood is a Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sabrina Sterling. This is book one in the Forgotten Gods Series and can be read as a stand-alone.

I absolutely love Laura’s books! I really enjoyed this series based on Egyptian Mythology. I look forward to reading the next book in the series Priestess of Truth.

Sabrina did an amazing job on the narration. She really knows how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

Short but fully formed with great narration

I enjoyed the way that Sabrina Sterling narrated this story, the various accents she used worked well.

This story is relatively short but feels perfectly formed. I enjoyed the mix of modern day and the ancient gods of Egypt. It kept me interested all the way to the end and I could have happily spent longer with the characters.

A twist on shifters

A real twist on the shifter genre, and good. I enjoyed the narration. It is a short, non-steamy, mythological story.

Entertaining read - lively and full of emotion

This is an excellent book. The story-line is well plotted, and entertaining. The narration was very good, and added to the drama of the book. I look forward to hearing more.
