Another great edition to the Immortals series and another God seeking his Chosen. Absu is the God of Sweet Water and he knows that Charlie Dunsky, his DEA buddy Ken’s sister is his Chosen but he has to win her over and he goes about it all wrong. I your read the previous books then you know that an invisible God becomes corporal around his Chosen and as soon as Charlie appeared so did he.
Charlie is very into BDSM and Absu’s gentle approach leaves her wanting more and trying to decide whether she can overlook his vanilla approach to sex. Both of them are very attracted to each other but once again the lack of communication on both their parts could cause this union to never happen.
King Nergal confesses that Beletseri is ex-secretary and a huge enemy to the Gods and Goddesses once again did something that could send the Gods back to the Underworld leaving their wives and children alone. When a Chosen is not with her mate she will eventually die and now time is running out for them. All the Gods must find their Chosen in a period of eighteen months and Absu has to rush along his pursuit of Charlie.
Charlie is unawares of the true nature of Absu and the othe’s she meets but her little girl Maity knows everything. She is able to mentally talk with the others but is still too young to express verbally what she knows. She even is aware when Beletseri feigns friendship with Charlie and when she refers to her as DOGGESS, Charlie thinks she is talking about a dog.
As always finding and bonding with your Chosen doesn’t run smoothly, Absu is using the wrong approach with Charlie leaving her ready to run, unfortunately it is to Beletseri she is running along with her lover Matthew. Charlie is ignorant of everything that is going on around her but she thinks Beletseri is her friend and is willing to accept her help, help that involves her leaving everyone behind including her brother Ken.
This book is filled with suspense, demons, sex, secrets and surprises. Kulla is a God who found his Chosen hundreds of years ago but once again secrecy caused his Chosen, Obedience to disappear and it is unknown if she is alive or dead. Kulla and Obedience are just a taste of what is going on in this book, people from the past return, Goddesses are having babies and families are reunited. Then there is Absu and Charlie who both share a love of BDSM but who refuse to speak of it and put their relationship in jeopardy.
Love this series and can’t wait to find out which God is next although I think I know.
