Book Review: The Immortals: The Crossing

Synopsis from The Immortal Series website for "The Immortals: The Crossing":

Celtic demigod Manannán mac Lir (Mac) is hot on the trail of Artemis Black, a stunningly dangerous witch who is inexplicably able to intertwine life magic with death magic. Her rare spells nearly killed a faerie infant. For the safety of his people, he should destroy her, but once he runs her to ground, he finds he just can’t do it. Artemis is vulnerable and sly all at once. Every time Mac thinks he’s got her caught, she slips from his grasp. Soon he’s obsessed with her.

Artemis is desperate. So desperate, she’s been skimming life essence from faeries, intending to barter the stolen magic for a demon’s assistance. When her spell gets out of control, she calls it back—but not quickly enough to escape the notice of one very angry, very sexy Celtic demigod.

Passion runs high between Artemis and Mac—but so does suspicion. Who would refuse the help of a demigod? Mac is sure Artemis is hiding something he’s not going to like, and he’s going to stick tight by her side until he uncovers the truth.

Even if she leads him straight into Hell.

I received this book as part of the "50 days, 50 books tour" that I was a part of last month for Joy Nash. I apologize in my delay in getting this review out.

Again, I absolutely love this book! The series is so fluent in the writing it makes you think the same author is writing these books. Joy Nash authors this book about Mac, another of the demigod brothers, that is hot after a witch (in more ways then one!) We are brought in to the world of witches, fairies and demons in this book. Artemis is doing taking life magic away from the fairies, which she has a good reason too, but is not willing to risk telling anyone. This gets her in to trouble and Mac must find her. Mac and Artemis connect, but they push other away. Each has their job to do and they won't let the other stop them. The conflict between dark and life magic has to find a balance for them both to survive the demon world..and each other.

Again, you don't have to have read the other books to enjoy this story. Just be aware it does get a bit hot and steamy in places, but the story itself is worth reading!
