Description: I’m Makenna Fraser, seer for SPI (Supernatural Protection & Investigations). I knew SPI protected some of the world’s most dangerous relics, but I didn’t know our draconic founder, Vivienne Sagadraco, kept them in a vault deep below Manhattan.
Until the most lethal relic of all was stolen.
The Aegis is the shield once wielded by Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war. The center of the Aegis contains the head of Medusa, making it the ultimate weapon. All who look on it or its reflection are instantly turned to stone.
Old enemies and new adversaries have descended on New York—and one of them now has the Aegis:
Tiamat—Babylonian goddess of chaos, and Vivienne Sagadraco’s sister
Stheno and Euryale—Eight-foot-tall, snake-haired gorgons, granddaughters of the Titans, and Medusa’s sisters
The Sisterhood of Medusa—An ancient gorgon military order
The Cabal—A supernatural terrorist organization
Those behind the theft have declared war on humanity, with a hatred that was millennia in the making, and a heist that was centuries in the planning.
Our mission is simple yet impossible: Retrieve the Aegis and save the world. But we can’t do it alone. We’ll need our friends, family, and some unexpected new allies if we’re to stop this ancient evil once and for all.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
This is a really GREAT story. It’s well thought out and in the case of me being confused easily – not confusing at all. The author tells the reader what they need to know and moves on with the story.
MaKenna and Rafe aren’t center stage in this book. It’s Vivienne Sagadraco’s story continuing where her sister Tiamat leaves off in the first two books. She still wants her revenge and is still the manipulative crank of the two sisters. Robbery starts off this story and the dragons are back at it again. Don’t touch their hoard!
This time, Tiamat has found a very devious way to get what she wants. Like I said, this is a very well thought out story and while I learned things I did not know about Medusa and her sisters, I was very riveted to the pages. This one was a one sitter and I enjoyed it.
