Heart of War by Lisa Beth Darling Review

Inside the heart of every warrior breathes the soul of a hero--even within The Heart of War.

Meet Ares God of War is the greatest Warrior the world has ever known, he's also moody, grumpy, dominant, ravenously sexual,and above all, built like a Greek God.

Suspected of killing his Daughter in-Law, Psyche, and long in exile from Olympus, the solitude of Ares' island is interrupted when Magdalena MacLeod a brash and sometimes manipulative Fey washes up on Ares' island after believing she's been shipwrecked. There is no wreck and her memory of events is sketchy at best. Branded with a golden chastity belt bearing the mark of Cernunnos, Celtic God of the Forest and Death, Alena has been on the run from the Great Horned God for 200 years. As Ares and Alena grow closer discord erupts on the island as his head woman, Kat, plots to get rid of Alena and the Olympians plot to use her in their endeavor to discover who killed Artemis. Ares will have to choose between his Divinely Dysfunctional Family, his pride, and Alena before dueling to the death with the God of the Forest.
Come along for an epic adventure of erotica, steamy romance, and drama in this Modern Day Greek Tragedy. Battle Ancient Gods and Fall in Love along side Ares God of War and Alena MacLeod. Theirs is a love that will rock the world from the heights of Olympus to the Celtic moors.
My Review:

The Heart of War is an amazing and brilliantly told story that sucks you in right away and doesn't let go of you. It's an emotional roller-coaster filled with anger, lust, betrayl, heart break, and love that leaves you on the edge of your seat until the book ends and I loved every moment of it!!!
Lisa weaves heart racing battle scenes and sizzling, toe curling sex scenes, that played in my head like a movie, with mythology. Ares is a fascinating character and the fact that he's the story's 'hero' makes the story quite unique. The descriptions are amazing. The world building is phenominal! The book is long, but never once did I feel that it was too long. It was the perfect length! 

One of my favorite parts of the story was the dialog and how the different gods and goddesses interact with one another. Love the cover, too! This book has become on of my favorites. I can see myself reading it again and again, and am even considering buying a paperback copy to place on my bookshelf!

I can't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series.
I recommend this book to anyone that's looking for a steamy paranormal book, with lots of action, adventure, and something much more entertaining that vampires and werewolfs!!!

Because of the battle and sex scenes (including rape), I would suggest that readers be 18+.
Happy Reading!!
