**Guest Posting by Toni** Something Darker by S.A. Price
The one thing Syrus Alcot, the God of Death Osiris in the Egyptian Pantheon, wants in all the worlds is the woman he loved and lost returned to him. When he gave up his powers, and freedom for a life of service he was promised her return. That was over one thousand years ago. A member of a team of dark gods charged with keeping humanity safe, he leads a loveless existence in New York City, searching for the one thing that could bring his wife back to him, a lapis scarab that was lost to him ages before.
Gwen Stapleton, a mild mannered librarian, is unaware that she holds the key to not only Syrus’ happiness, but her own. Seemingly stuck in a hopeless relationship with a man she doesn’t love, she has no idea that a chance meeting in Alphabet City will start a landslide to her heart’s content. Because Gwen is the keeper of the scarab, and is everything Syrus has ever wanted… and hes not the only one.
An Ancient evil is waking, and its servants will stop at nothing to see it seize its rightful place as the new pantheon of earth. And in order for Syrus and his team to save the world, Gwen is going to have to accept him, and show that love does make all the difference.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
The Dark Gods of the Underworld are living in New York City fighting evil as only 6 HOT guys can. They are also looking for lost relics, scarabs that will tie them to their Keepers, women who will restore their powers and become their soul mates as they have been lost when they either chose or were cast down to earth. Some of the Gods do not do well on this plane existing for tens of thousands of years and use sex, alcohol, and violence to curb their appetites.
This story has our main couple Osiris the God of Death and Gwen the Librarian whom meet while he is saving her from being eaten by a Div. Him being a Hot God and all helps him out and she is coming out of a bad relationship. This book has much to like, from the sweet parts of the romance to the hot sexy parts, there is also plenty of action. The way the relationship develops, to the story and the mythology. I will be awaiting the next in this series!
I can't wait for more from this author.
