Seeing the future is hard, but facing it will be explosive
A Seer has surfaced--but she's blind!
Chloe Santos is an immortal with a whole world of problems. The victim of an attempted murder that left her blind, horribly disfigured, and stuck with powers everyone thought eradicated, it's safe to say she's at a low point in her life. But then she's blackmailed into investigating a kidnapping with links to her past. It could put herself, and everyone she cares about, in danger.
Including her Warrior Soulmate.
Phobos has a millennia of blood on his hands. As the son of Ares, he's done horrific things in the name of keeping the continued existence of immortals a secret. Only all of that changes when he meets his Soulmate.
Allegiances shift, trust is thin and Chloe has to decide if she should risk everything to make the world a better place. Even if that means sacrificing her own chance at happiness.
READER ADVISORY: This Paranormal Romance contains a strong-willed goddess and her protective Warrior Soulmate who don't appreciate the term 'vanilla' when it comes to the bedroom.
PUBLISHER NOTE: 74,500 words.
A Seer that is blind, Chloe Santos was the victim of a horrendous attempted murder that left her disfigured. But the powers that were thought to be destroyed with the loss of her eyes are still going strong. She is still a Seer, and things are about to get interesting when she is summoned to a meeting with the Council.
The first book in a new series by S.E. Welsh, and it does not disappoint. I am looking forward to seeing where this series goes next.
It is well paced and plotted. The world she created is intriguing and there is great character development. A super strong female lead that has had her share of tragedy to overcome. The scare-tastic boys are fun and sexy and lovable even when they are at their scary best. Bailey is fabulous – I love a good hellhound – he’s really just a big protective marshmallow.
The story is exciting and action packed with a good hit of steaminess too. I have always been a fan of books that weave ancient mythology into a modern story. It was appealing to have city settings that I am familiar with, it adds an element of familiarity. I love Phobos, although I do feel that the bond was a little fast – that is just personal preference though, I prefer a slow burn to an instant bonding. Phobos is an immortal son of Ares and has had a past soaked in horror and pain. Meeting his soulmate could change everything. Can they both have a shot at happiness or will the shift in loyalties be prevented? I am looking forward to seeing more of these characters as the series progresses.
Seer is book one in the Titanomachy series by S.E. Welsh. The story focuses on Chloe, an immortal who has had a hard road in her young life. Blinded in an attempted murder, the pain and suffering she has gone through has brought her powers of being a seer into the forefront. To make matter worse, she has now been put in front of the Council where she is expected to use her new powers to find out what is happening to other immortals, whilst trying to stay alive, working out a new relationship whilst staving off advances from another, all with her trusty Hellhound, Bailey by her side.
This book is a series of twist and turns, wrapped up in some wonderful story-telling about the Gods & Goddesses of the past and how they are alive and well in the ‘new’ world’. Chloe was a great character with some sass, strength and vulnerability. To have been blinded and trying to see through others eyes brought a different element to the character, who was just delightful to read about. The relationship she has with both sons of Ares: Phobos and Deimos was both funny, strong and new to all three of them, as was the bond that both Chloe and ‘Boss’ started feeling towards each other which added a complication and complexity to the story line.
There was something for everyone in this book; old tales, passion, intrigue, friendship to name but a few. It was definitely a page turner with interwoven stories which just left you wanting more, not only from Chloe but also from the other characters that she met on her journey. From beginning to end, this book sucks you in and keeps you enthralled until the last page!
This is a definite must read for all those fans of paranormal romance that have a really strong protagonist!
