Athine has long been told she was the chosen one. Only problem is she doesn't want to be chosen for anything; she wants her own adventures. She gets her chance when she learns that her new powers allow her to kill other immortals.

Follow Athine from the beginning as she learns about her heritage and being an immortal born. See how she interacts with some notable immortals such as Zeus, Hera, Odin, and Morrigan. Learn about the origins of the vampire and what happened to the dragons!

This is a special edition volume that includes: Daughter of Ares, Athine Verses: The Narkurru, and the NEW story Athine Verses: The Blood Sisters.

This version also includes an extensive "appendix" of characters, places, and things from the books that is a must have for all enthusiasts and not available in any other edition!

My Thoughts:
This was a great read. I really enjoyed it. This author is new to me and I do plan to read more. I love her cover art which she did herself. The version I read was the entire trilogy together. It was the perfect length and really flowed well. I had a bit of trouble at the start but it really picked up in Chapter one. She writes characters well. They really stand out and have personality and life of their own. I would recommend this to any fantasy lover. Look forward to reading more from this author. And again love her art.

Author Bio:
Shannon McRoberts was born in Kentucky a while ago. She is still reportedly living there, but prefers to not be seen or heard from because she has a day job that sucks most of her life away. She began writing novellas late in her life after fulfilling a college dream of publishing her poetry book. She has even won a few awards here and there, but that really doesn't matter to her much.

She enjoys creating fantasy art in Poser and Daz Studio to help spur on her writing about fantasy worlds. She is also an avid reader enjoying many books that feature strong female leads. It comes as no surprise that when she writes the characters are also strong female leads ;)

Her books are not long at all as she feels that something should be left up to the reader and no you don't really need to know on the fourth floor that the walls were blue in most situations!

If she has any spare time Shannon enjoys playing things like World of Warcraft, Elder Scroll games, Guild Wars, Rift, and Second Life. However, she often doesn't have any spare time between work, family, and her art/writing hobbies.

Zazzle  - I really love her art and you can get greeting cards from her zazzle store. Wicked Awesome.
