eISBN: 9781426894305 (File size: 366KB)
The last thing Rebecca Massee expects on her wedding day is to go from jilted kindergarten teacher to Amazonian Earth warrior. But when she causes an earthquake after her groom says I don't, she discovers that not only does she possess incredible powers, she is one of four lost chosen sisters who must fight to keep humanity safe from rogue gods and demons. Luckily she has help: ruggedly handsome Scottish warrior Artair MacKay, her protector and teacher.
When an evil force threatens to destroy the Amazons, Rebecca must claim her full powers - but they come at a cost. Can she sacrifice the man she loves if it means saving the world?
Unlike a lot of books, there are only a few central characters. One of the most memorable is Sparks. A real hot-head, she has a smart mouth as well as a nifty fire power. With her sisters lost, and the next generation coming in for training, Sparks is desperate to find her sisters. Will she trust in Rebecca and Megan? What lengths will she go to to find them?
In the middle of Sparks struggle, and surrounded by fast and lethal women, Rebecca seems to be having a hard time fitting in. The odd man out, she's not as quick, strong or athletic as the others (and if you listen to the goddess Rhiannon she's useless), but there is something so loving and giving about her that you can't help but root for her as she struggles to stay in Avalon.
Now Artair on the other hand is the hunky Celt. Centuries young and gorgeous, as good heroes always are, the Sentinel and trainer for the Amazons has the task of training generation after generation of these powerful women. That is until he finds his long forgotten heart being reawakened by this fragile Earth. He swings between being a sweety, and a total hard arse - especially towards Rebecca. There were times when I wanted to kick him in the butt, but the fact that I felt that way means that Ms. James has done her job well I think.
