Publisher's Summary

This box set contains the first three books in the best-selling Nia Rivers Adventures by Jasmine Walt and Ines Johnson. This action-packed series features an immortal archaeologist and her tomb-raiding sidekick as they uncover lost artifacts, tangle with Greek gods, cross swords with Templar Knights, and much more!

The first three books in this box set include:

  • Book One: Dragon Bones
  • Meet Nia Rivers: archaeologist, fashionista, and an ancient immortal with a serious memory problem.

    For the last couple of centuries, Nia has been trying to fill in the blanks of her past by shedding light on history's darkest stories. Her motto: the ugliest stories are the ones that deserve to be told the most.

    But when a mysterious woman comes forth with a 200-year-old relic from Nia's past, Nia isn't sure if the story connected to it is one she wants told to the world. Unfortunately, Nia has no choice but to uncover the truth - fast - before a greedy land developer buries the site forever. The fact that he's also an immortal, with a millennia-old grudge against her, doesn't help. Neither do the dark assassins who have been stalking her for centuries, and who've suddenly decided to up their game to end her life.

    Letting her enemies have their way might be best for Nia, especially when the truth might expose a horrific crime from Nia's past. But all stories deserve to be told.

    Even the ugliest ones.

    Even if they say you might be a mass murderer.

  • Book Two: Demeter's Tablet
  • Nia Rivers knows that immortality comes at a cost. So when she finds out that the Greek gods have devised a way to offer everlasting life to humans, she heads down to Athens to find out more about the mysterious cult of Demeter.

    What she doesn't expect to learn about is her own involvement in the rituals.

    With her bestie, Loren, by her side, Nia must determine if the Olympians are the righteous gods they proclaim to be, or the villains in this chapter of history. The broken heart she's still nursing isn't helping. But if Nia can't get her head in the game, the Titans will rise again, and the souls of all humans on Earth will be at risk....

  • Book Three: Templar Scrolls
  • When an ancient relic of Camelot goes missing, who do Arthur and his knights call? Nia Rivers, ancient immortal and archaeologist extraordinaire, of course!

    Nia jumps at the chance to go to Camelot, especially since she's been banned in the past. Thankfully, Arthur is willing to let Nia's past breaches of his castle, theft attempts, and a certain debacle with his sword be bygones if she'll help him recover the Holy Grail. But as Nia strives to keep her fingers to herself, enemies from the past resurface in a race to acquire the ancient holy relic.

    Amazing value for money

    I absolutely adore this series! And what better deal than getting books 1-3 in one bundle? The characters are fantastic and I really enjoyed the premise of the overall storyline and idea for the series. The protagonist was an especially interesting character to get to know. The books were well written, I just didn't love the narrator all that much (but I eentually got used to her style/voice) found that each individual book just got better, and the first one was already a fantastic one to begin with...

    Great story, mediocre narration

    The story has a lot going for it: an original story idea, interesting main characters, plot line that has continuity between successive volumes. My only problem is with the narration. Her cadence is monotonous and while diction is clear her inflection is robotic. Sentences seem to run together, as if there’s no reason to breathe or provide a break between paragraphs.

    Loved this story and the main character!

    I am so surprised! I’ve seen these books but I always thought it was going to be like all the other books with women who have a fireball in her hands and a sword in another except this one is missing the long haired muscular man in the background. It’s not! I LOVE this story. The author did a really great job with this story and I absolutely loved these books! Nia/Nova is a strong women who isn’t whiny and drops everything for the guy she just met and feels a strong pull to (seriously this is rhe story with every single book that looks like the above mentioned). This isn’t that! She knows what she is, knows her limits, and is a kick ass beotch. That’s what I look for in these books and what more authors need to write about.

    Very disappointed

    I kept listening to this book got to chapter 9 and it still hasn't picked up. I was really disappointed as the story line sounded really good. Just to slow for me.

    Okay. Narrator accents very suspect though.

    Overall I quite enjoyed these books. There were two major problems though. Both apparent in the third book. One was the awful attempts by the narrator at various British accents. Nothing really more to say on that, it can be a common problem with narrators from all over the world attempting different accents. Heaven knows some British attempts at American accents are cringe worthy. However, the other problem was something that had me really cringing as a proud Salopian, (that's a person from Shropshire btw). I understand that with fantasy novels you suspend belief, it's part of why I love fantasy works so much. However, if you're going to talk about somewhere real, then there should be some accurate accounting of the places mentioned. Yes, that Templar Cave does exist. However, not only is Shropshire miles from the coast, right on the Welsh border, it's the largest inland Shire in England... not the largest English Shire overall, I believe that goes to Yorkshire, but inland, yep, we have that honour. The key in that bit of information is 'inland'! I get that water was important to that part of the story... but if a bit of effort had been made, then the authors could have found out the river Severn runs through the county, is a tidal river at source, and indeed, is famous in the UK for the Severn Bore. While the Severn doesn't go right past the Templar Cave, it's close enough to have been used in place of cliff's and sea, yet still having a link to the sea that the authors wanted. Think of including the Severn Bore into the story as part of the magic, and it was a real opportunity missed. It was as though the authors heard about the cave, realised it could be nice to work that into the story, yet took no time to research the place beyond media reports. A total disappointment. With those grumbles out of the way... overall, I did enjoy these stories enough to look forward to seeing where the upcoming book/books lead.
