Product Description

Product Description

His love will become her curse.

For centuries, Gideon has kept his secret, knowing that it could mean the life of the woman whose very heartbeat was his reason for living. But when Veil Creatures are slaughtered in their homes by those sworn to protect them, it may be up to him to save those he loves from a fate worse than death. What he doesn’t expect is the betrayal and a choice that could leave his family devastated.

Valkyrie Devereaux believes only in the power of justice, loyalty and obeying the laws of her people. Love was something to be feared and she had been taught long ago that anything that could make you weak, needed to be eliminated. But when she is assigned to join the Casters of the north in hunting down the creatures killing the innocent, even she can’t help the twang of longing for something that goes against everything she was raised to believe was wrong.

Like fire and gasoline, passions collide. Heat erupts as they fight against their desires and their very nature. But a fire like theirs can never be smothered. It can never be stopped. It can only burn to unimaginable heights, but what happens when it careens out of control and destroys everything around them? And who is waiting for that exact moment to destroy the brothers?

She will become his death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Phoenix's Best Story To Date.... 25 February 2015
By Kimberly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been waiting so long for this book. Octavian's Undoing was a work of art on its own. And though I fell head over heels for the eldest Maxwell brother, Ms. Phoenix laid the groundwork for what I knew would be an amazing story for Gideon. Snarky, sexy, with just a glimmer of something more...I couldn't wait for Gideon's turn.

This has to be the most flawlessly written story that Morgana has put out thus far. I felt like I was watching a movie as I was reading the pages of this book. The imagery that we have all come to know and love from her stories was definitely there, but there was something different about this story.

Complicated and intense in every sense of the word, Gideon Maxwell has it all. Charm, looks, humor, sexiness, and a heart of gold...even for someone that hunts demons for a living. The beautiful love story that haunts him from his mate is one to leave you feeling broken and beaten. Oh, but don't worry - I have never known Ms. Phoenix to leave us heartbroken in the end.

Valkyrie Devereaux was introduced to us in Octavian's Undoing as well. A Harvester Warrior, calculating and manipulative...with something hiding underneath for our oh so scrumptious man in leather (....yes, I'm talking about Gideon). Morgana places Valkyrie into a compromising position when attacks on veiled creatures start....one that forces her to face possibly her one true downfall....yes, again, Gideon Maxwell.

I honestly can't give too much more away in this story, but let me say it's one that you want to start and finish all in one breath. But at the same time, I wasn't ready for this absolutely amazing story to end. Just enough heat to keep you awake, and a plot line and story that keeps you guessing until the end. And of course, Morgana, in all of her evil awesomeness leaves us wanting more.

Magnus's Defeat (Book #3) will not reach the shelves quick enough for me. I need to know what happens...and you will, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Author seems to have abandoned the thrilogy and moved on... :( 29 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book was good and I really enjoyed reading it. Even more than the first book... HOWEVER, if you are hoping to finish the series, you may never. It drives me crazy when authors don't finish trilogies. It's the only reason I rated this book a 3 rather than 5 stars is because the last book was suppose to finished last year and rather than finish the series, the author abandoned it and moved on... So who knows what happens!? This book is really good, but you'll be disappointed there is no book 3. I'm happy to revise the review if that changes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jumping on Gideon's......train. 23 February 2015
By Romance Authors That Rock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
We met Gideon in Son's of Judgment book one. The devoted brother who uses humor to cope. He has always been the protector, the voice of reason, and the one to make me laugh. Gideon has lived the last three hundred years with a secret. This secret tears a small shred of his heart from him every day.

Valkyrie was also a key player in book one and has carried over to a more featured part in book two. A fierce Hunter, she lives by familial code. Women are the strength of her race and virginity brings them their power. To become a hunter you must live through torture and battles to prove your worth. She buries all of that deep to earn the respect of her father the king. nothing else has mattered to her, until that fateful day three hundred years ago. She chose respect over what was in her heart. Interesting things happen when your choices come back to haunt you.

I fell in love with Gideon far harder than his brother Octavian. Gideon left me laughing out loud more times than I can count. The devotion he shows for those he loves is immeasurable and watching him figure out how to "deal" with Kyrie was amusing. The supporting characters are never far from the forefront in this book making it that much more enjoyable. The author has left me guessing with Magnus. Even though I found Gideon so hot, I have a feeling that Magnus is going to destroy me.

My favorite part of this book was the banter between Gideon and every other character. His jokes are unique and cocky and I love that in a man.
Now as far as the story, wowza. What a cliff hanger at the end, I was left confused in only the best way. I tell ya what, if Morgana takes another year for Magnus, I might have to do some unhealthy stalking to move things along!

Gideon’s Promise is the second book in the ‘Sons of Judgement’ series and this time around (as the title would suggest) it’s Gideon Maxwell’s turn to find his soul mate…… the thing is – he found her 300 yrs ago and kept it to himself! Gideon could be classed as many things, cocky, arrogant, funny, HOT….. need I say more? But one of those things I never saw him as was a self-sacrificing, protector of hearts. Gideon made quite the impact in book one with his wit and charm, he came across as a ladies man who would never be tied down – little did we know the secret he was keeping. It was also clear in book one that there was a little something, something going on in the chemistry department between him and Valkyrie Devereaux, you could tell they were mutually attracted but in a hate to love kind of way, they infuriate each other both on purpose and unintentionally and now we know why. I loved the banter between them in book one and it definitely carried over onto book two well, I’m also a sucker for hate to love relationships too so I was hooked straight away because it was clear these two were meant for each other. The reason he keeps it secret is because of who Valkyrie is and the laws and customs of her people, knowing that she could be put to death if they became an item and knowing that if he didn’t touch or claim her then she would never know of her soul mate status and be able to live her life as expected.
He always keeps her at arms length but when veil creatures are being wiped out in their own homes, Valkyrie is sent to investigate and join forces with the Maxwells and that leaves Gideon with a dilemma because the more he time he spends around her, the more he wants to touch her, bond with her and the living arrangements put temptation firmly on his doorstep. Valkyrie, unaware of Gideon’s feelings doesn’t understand why he is so standoffish with her, he always seems to hate her and she doesn’t know why, but she’ll give as much as she gets. Her world is much different to Gideons, her life is about survival, being the best, never failing or showing weakness and above all – obeying the laws and customs of her people. She is not allowed to fall in love, she will be given a mate when the time comes and she will do her duty by bearing children to become the next generation of warriors.
As they investigate the slayings, they are forced to enter hostile territory in the hopes of gaining information but what happens is something different, they are betrayed in the worst way possible and the consequences are dire. I could never have imagined the way the story would turn here, yes I was expecting something but wow, what a shocker and it really opened my eyes up to the perpetrator. When Gideon tried to take the blame, it broke my heart because of what he was trying to do and why, it is a big game changer in the story but also a good thing for the progression of the relationship. With the event and the fall out, I thought it brought a softer side out in Valkyrie, she seemed less rigid and willing to see another way but those law abiding tendencies still remain.
As the story keeps on going we have multiple attempts on everyone's lives that inject a lot of action into the plot, we still have murderers on the loose and there’s a real sense of dread upon all at the house. Something is brewing, something bad and this is the basis for what is to come. All of the way through the book, it’s hard to see a way for Gideon and Valkyrie to get their HEA, you really want it for them but there are so many obstacles in the way plus there is a truly tragic event that astounded me – in fact this book is filled with OMG moments that really make you feel like no one is safe. I enjoyed finding out about the other keepers of the gates, each are different and have a different way of doing their jobs but it’s Valkyries I was most interested in and that we got the most information about. Her story is really sad, her life is sad and it was tough to read of her treatment by those meant to love and protect her. The fact that she was not free to love who she chose isn’t even the worst of it so I was so glad she had the Maxells to lean on. There is a lot going on in the story that doesn’t become apparent until the ending, I didn’t feel like the book had a solid conclusion – more of a small cliffhanger ending but it does what its meant to…. Leaves you wanting more.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing second book in this series 3 March 2015
By Yvi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was super excited to be reading Gideon's Promise, after I already fell in love with the whole family in the first Son of Jugdment book. And this book didn't disappoint at all!! It was great in every way possible.

I love it when you realize early on in the book that the two people you wanna end up together basically hate each other. Their banter is one of the things that makes this book so amazing. It's funny, hilarious, and yet heart-breaking at times as well. Because once you read this book you will realize that things aren't always what they seem, and fighting verbally with someone sometimes is the only way to keep your sanity.

Gideon has loved Kyrie for over 300 years already, and yet he knows that once he gives in to those desires, everything is lost. So he does the only thing he can think of: push her away. Watching him do that, and seeing how it breaks his heart over and over and over again, just breaks your own heart right along with it. You so badly want them to be together, but you KNOW that things are impossible. Or so they seem at least. And yet Gideon goes against every instinct he has, every fiber in his body that tells him to actually go to her and tell her how much he loves her. Let's just say it definitely isn't easy to watch them together, unable to actually BE together.

Kyrie herself hasn't had an easy life either. With the way she was brought up, unable to even process the slightest emotion, you do feel sorry for her, and yet you cannot help and be proud of the woman she has become and what she made out of herself. Yes, her inability to actually feel love is heartbreaking, and yet she hasn't given up yet. There is always that small part of her, that part that belongs to Gideon, that wishes it knew just what loving a person would really mean. But there are customs she can't ignore, when death would be waiting on the other side.

Together, the two of them are a combustable team, one where you always have to wonder what happens next, who blows up next or who will give in first! It's never clear what is gonna happen, because both are so unpredictable that you can never guess if they are gonna kill or kiss each other.

Besides those two, we get the whole family together again, and I have always loved the family dynamics, the fact that there is nothing anyone in this family wouldn't do for one another. It's beautiful, because with so many stories out there with dysfunctional families, it's great to see one where loyalty trumps all. And boy I cannot wait for Magnus' story to come to life.

Airicka Phoenix' writing has a way to draw you into the story and makes it hard for you to let go. All throughout the book (and it was a long one) I wanted to get to the end, and yet not, because while I would know what happens, I would also have nothing left to read. And that just plain sucks, simply as that. So Airicka, please do me a favor and get the next book out ASAP!!!!

This is a great read that I would recommend to everyone!! Please read it, you won't be disappointed!!! 5 definite book boyfriends!!
