The story of Adam and Eve continues in this short novella that gives the reader much insight into the story of how Eve’s marriage to the Marquis deLeon was so wonderful. While Adam is not in this story he is still there as a threat in the background. This novella mainly lets the reader see how far some goddesses will go for revenge and how others will go to save her people. As always this author wrote a story that completely drew me in and I did not stop reading until the story was finished. The characters are well rounded and beautifully written along with the world painted to seem completely real.
This story really gave me a lot of insight into Eve and her personality. She is always talking about how the Marquis was such a dear husband in earlier books but it seems their marriage got off to a rocky start. I enjoyed reading how this came to be and showed just how much interaction Eve has with the other gods without knowing. While I am anxious to see how this series ends I am also sad to see it end. I have enjoyed how the author is able to weave the different gods and goddesses into one story that involves the continuing tale of Adam and Eve.
One thing I am curious about is will the reader get a novella dedicated to Adam? Perhaps right after he gets his memory back? He is a read-worthy villain!!
