Review: South of Surrender (Hearts of the Anemoi, Book 3) by Laura Kaye

South of Surrender Reviewed by Adria

This a first for me. A Pegasus shifter? Okay so maybe not exactly a shifter but one of his forms is a winged horse.

South of Surrender mixes Greek mythology with romance and weaves an engaging story that will leave readers wanting more. The Greek wind gods, otherwise known as the Anemoi (in case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced ANny-moi), must corral one of their own before the Olympic gods interfere.

Eurus is out of control and must be destroyed, but his younger brother Chrysander still thinks Eurus can be redeemed. After a battle with Eurus, Chrys finds himself injured, drained and in the mortal world. There he meets Laney Summerlyn, a mortal woman with problems of her own. Thrown together by circumstance beyond their control, Chrys and Laney start to fall for each other but just as things are looking up, Eurus threatens their lives and happiness.

Romance novels that stem from Greek mythology are either a hit or a miss for me, due in part to their being so many gods and goddesses. If an author puts too much complex mythology into a book it can weigh down the story and stall the pace. However if an author puts too little into a book then it becomes an afterthought and that same story may not have a strong back story. South of Surrender manages to merge Greek mythology and the romance genre into an interesting and effortless story of loss, betrayal and love.

As book 3 in a series, South of Surrender can be read as a stand-alone book but why deny yourself the pleasure of getting to know Chrysander’s brothers?
