Gena Showalter, the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld, introduces a scorching new paranormal romance series… Gods of War.
Knox of Iviland has spent his life competing in the All Wars, where vicious warriors with supernatural powers fight to the death to claim new realms. One winner takes everything—and all losers die. Enslaved as a child for his ability to control shadows, the most ruthless champion in history will stop at nothing to kill his king. But first he must win the battle for Earth. When a fearsome weapon imprisons every combatant in ice, centuries pass without progress…until she walks in.
Vale London craves a fun arctic getaway with her foster sister before settling down to open a bakery. Street-tough but vulnerable, she is unprepared to find ancient gods escaping a frozen cave—merciless beings who target her when she inadvertently enters their war.
Though Vale is now his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can prove victorious, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.

“I love this world…this is Gena Showalter at her best!”—J.R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“The Gods of War series is my new obsession.”—Christine Feehan, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Three weeks ago, she and Nola had thought adventure awaited when they’d arrived in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. And it had. For five days. Then they’d road-tripped into Russia and hiked through the Khibiny Mountains with a thirty-something guide who’d promised a kick-A experience. Temperatures had proven frosty, but there’d been very little snow, and no ice. A plethora of trees had awed, their leaves plush and green enough to rival freshly polished emeralds, seemingly dusted with diamond powder. Here and there, rivers had babbled happily, and breathtaking waterfalls had cascaded into crystal pools.
Somehow, their little trio had veered off of a path and ended up in this icy wasteland. In a blink!
Backtracking hadn’t helped. The ice had remained, and stretched on. A single set of footprints had led them to a cabin…where they’d spent every day of the past two weeks. Well, Vale and Nola had spent every day of the past two weeks inside the cabin. Before the end of day one, their guide had taken off to scout the perimeter, hoping to stumble upon the cabin’s owner, he’d said, but he’d never returned, and there’d been no sign of him since.
This morning, the sisters were forced to make a choice: remain in the warmth of the cabin and slowly starve to death, or set out to try to find help, and quickly freeze to death.
As Carrie—aka Care Bear, aka best foster momma ever—used to say, If you want to experience the miracle of walking on water, you gotta get out of the boat.
Better to try and fail than to never try at all.
In desperate need of a miracle, Vale and Nola had strapped on snow gear they’d unearthed in a trunk only a few days before. Oddly enough, the garments had fit perfectly, as if tailor-made for them. The coincidence had roused her suspicions, sure, but in the end she hadn’t cared about how or why, only survival. They’d set out bright and early that morning, trudging through mile after mile of snow.
Now sunset approached. So far, no luck. They’d found no hint of life, and Vale was getting worried.
Getting? Please. She’d been worried every second of every day since the nightmare had started. She wasn’t ready to die.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I adore Gena Showalter and her paranormal stories. I would give this one 3.5 stars. I was so excited that she was starting a new series. I could not wait to dig in. I really enjoyed the start to this new series. I liked the ideas behind the world these characters live in and I am curious to learn more. The world building was very well done. The only trouble I had with this story, is it just felt a convoluted at times and I was a little lost in places, but I am definitely interested in continuing on with this story and learning more. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
