Author(s): 

Knight provides an intriguing new twist to both Greek mythology and legendary Spartan warriors with this searing new series, as she sets up an alternate world that begs to be explored. Plenty of high-risk action, treachery and danger force these two protagonists into extreme choices. Knight's alternate realities are always most intriguing.

Seven of the legendary Spartan warriors who fought and died at Thermopylae were given immortality by the god Ares in return for their becoming the protectors of mankind. Of the seven, Ajax Petrakos is the only one who can see and translate the Oracle's prophecies. When the Oracle tells Jax that his long-destined mate is in Savannah, Ga., and threatened by his old enemy, the evil djinn demon Sable, Jax knows he must face this battle alone.

Shay Angel's family have been demon hunters for generations, but she is an oddity. Until her, no female has ever been able to see the demons. Although Jax saves Shay from certain death, his dark wings imply that he is anything but angelic. Does she dare trust him? (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Oct., 400 pp., $6.99)
