The first in Kristy Bock’s divine series, Kate is an archeologist who is extremely excited about the werewolf bones and can’t wait to unpack and examine them. On the journey to learning more about what curse befell her foster family, Kate believes the werewolf bones are the key. However, Kate’s bones don’t remain bones for long and in their place she finds a naked man!
Zane DeSeville has been trapped for 500 years in the void until Kate releases him. Looking shockingly like the woman who imprisoned him, Zane has a hard time trusting Kate’s intentions, but as the daughter of the Goddess Zane serves, keeping Kate alive is now Zane’s responsibility.
Kate has just discovered she is the daughter of the Goddess Noxia and must now pass the Three Trials of Humanity or be imprisoned as Zane has been. With enemies left and right, Kate must rely on Zane and her new circle of friends to help her adjust to her new powers and survive the trials or suffer the consequences.
Goddesses, werewolves, and elves, oh my! This book was incredibly clever and fun. Filled to the bursting with magical creatures this story is a fast paced ride that doesn’t really slow down until the end. Kate and Zane are very lovable characters and their relationship unfolds very sweetly. The plot offers many twists and turns with every new realization. As the first of a series a lot had to be accomplished in this story with the unveiling of a whole cast of characters, but this was done in an interesting way that was not overwhelming like some other series beginners tend to be. The dialogue is witty and well written, making me laugh on several occasions. I would highly recommend this book and I’m anticipating continuing the series.
