Now, 20 years after his escape from those hellish origins, Asher is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are merciless. Add in Skyla, one of Zeus's Sirens' sent to kill Orpheus and retrieve the Orb of Kronos bad juju. The truth could reveal a deadly secret as old as the Eternal Guardians themselves. This book was much darker than I expected, but in a good way. He has some knowledge and experience with magic.
It had Hades who was Hot and not in a good way! I'm sure there were, but I just can't think of any.

Yet Skyla herself might have the most to lose. The reason for his execution given to her of him being a dangerous deamon does not fit the Orpheus she meets. .
Her writing is decent and her dialogue is easy to follow, and is generally able to avoid being cheesy. I loved the chemistry between Orpheus and Skyla. That being said, Naughton does the aforementioned well. Orpheus and Skayla's story brought more into the mix with the underworld and gives you more understanding of the world all the guardians live in.
