Ileana lives a solitary life in the shadows, a ghost thirsting for vengeance. A warrior Ailouros, half cat, whose sheer existence has been kept secret by a special ability no one can know exists, she is closed off and trusts no one. After thousands of years spent in near isolation while hunting her prey, she has finally found a clue leading to the location of her enemy. Revenge is at hand.
When a fantastically hot Guardian unknowingly puts himself in the middle of a deadly intrigue, nearly ruining her careful plans, Ileana is forced to make a choice. Her one chance at finding vengeance will hinge on hurling them both into piercing ecstasy.
Warning: This book is intended for an adult audience. There are dirty talking Guardians with bad language, some violence, and explicit scenes hot enough to give you cat scratch fever.
Apollo should be kept hidden and asleep but unfortunately his body has been stolen by the thoroughly repugnant Elizabeth and she's determined to wake him no matter what the cost. Into this scenario comes Ileana, an unusual shifter, with goals of her own. Whilst tracking down information, she crosses paths with the Guardian, Jax, and immediately realises that the unfortunate male who’s chasing her is her Mate! Two people entwined with so many secrets but the outcome is anything but predictable.
Okay, I admit the first couple of books were sexy but Piercing Ecstasy just didn't feel realistic to me. Setta Jay writes red hot scenes, but I need to believe in them. What really works here though is the continuation and expansion of the storyline as the Gods and those who support them step up and allow Ms Jay to flesh them out a little.
The author has done an amazing job here with twists, turns, and unexpected enemies. I loved it and for me it's her best story yet. Not just a mating, but a trip into this world created by the author. I know what I want next, but I fear that I just might have to wait a teeny bit longer! Hot, dirty, and yet this time I'm a happy reader!
