I didn't like this one as much as the previous two in the series...too religious. The battle between good and evil is very pronounced and overly religious. I did like Aristos who was so in love that it was almost unmanly but he did lose Juliana for a century so I can certainly understand his reaction. Interestingly enough, Juliana was from the victorian age and even in current times, kept her victorian mannerisms except when they were getting it on...then she was pure slut. Not a bad book but not something I would read again.
I'm not sure about the next book in the series Red Mortal which appears to focus on King Leonides and Daphne. You get a good deal of their story in this one and I can't see where they actually need their own book. I'd be much more interested in the other warriors so we'll see.
