Hera and Aries have taken over Olympus. The other Gods have one chance to free Zeus, however, in order to do so the other Gods must be willing to sacrifice their freedom for his. Twelve keys will release Zeus from Icarus and those keys are each a mate to the chosen ones and the stones will lead the way. Each obstacle is a labor Hercules is all too familiar with. Can they succeed before their time runs out or are they all doomed?
When Stephan finds out he is the mate of Perseus, Son of Zeus, and the reason that a deadly disease has been unleashed, killing people all around him, in order to get to him, Stephan is more determined to stop it at all costs…even if it means his own life. Working together, can they stop it before it is too late? Or will Stephan have to die for others to live?
The second Twelve Labor is upon us with Cree Storm’s Perseus. Sent to retrieve the next key and his mate, Perseus meets Stephan, noted doctor and purveyor of the key.
Perseus was a likeable character caught in an unwarranted situation, forced to find his mate with the eventuality of saving Zeus. I enjoyed Perseus’ personality but at times I found him slightly shallow. He knew from the start he was one of the chosen (in the great hall) but still was ambivalent and cautious. What I did adore about him though, was his unwavering love of Stephan. Perseus immediately saw the good in his mate and fell in love with his attitude and professionalism, before the “lust of looks” took over. Kudos Ms. Storm!
The story kept me entertained throughout and mythology is always a plus for me. Where I think the story strayed~ was the ending. No spoilers, but the abruptness and the complete left turn left me taken back.
