Fire Maidens 8: Greece

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Reviewed in the United States on June 22, 2021Another wonderful book in this series. I absolutely love how the great descriptions allow you to picture the setting in your mind. Even better are the characters created, this couple are wonderful together. Well written, yet with flaws that make them come alive for you, I’m dying to read the next one now!

After ten years in the military, dragon shifter Theo Lazaridis has a new mission: to check off the last of his father’s requirements and finally claim a vast inheritance. But plans are made to be rewritten and priorities change, especially when a fiery stranger appears, turning his world upside down.

Zoe Thomas is living an archaeologist’s dream on a sun-kissed Greek island. That is, until startling new discoveries at her excavation open a Pandora’s box of trouble — and puts her on a collision course with powerful forces straight out of Greek mythology.

Much as her stubborn pride hates to admit it, Zoe needs help to protect an ancient wonder — and to survive. The problem is, the only person up to the challenge is a tantalizing mystery man she’s been warned not to get involved with… The very man she finds impossible to resist.

I love how this Fire Maiden was an enchantress. I think this was by far my favorite. I love Greek mythology and for this book to incorporate it into this story was epic. Theo ready showed his maturity level not only to his father but the people of the small island of Anenomodolos. The east side of the island was protected by the enchantress and the west by dragons. Zoe was an archeologist who came to do a survey and once their she realizes always how much she loved Greece although this was her first time on this particular island, it was not her first time in Greece. Her adopted parents brought her family here to do participate in the reenactment Spartans wars of the old days. As it turns out she was born here and given to an owl shifter family... This is where things take a turn of a twist..they need a fire maiden and Theo needs to prove himself to his father. He doesn't want to marry or get with just anyone for his inheritance. But these two team up and anything can and will happen. You see centaurs, minotaur, satyrs coming to the rescue. Oh and lets not forget the Pegasus and Spartans themselves. I do not like to give away the stories Anna writes. Just know she's an amazing author and will never leaving you hanging unless its attentional. You will not be disappointed. GET THE BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can he convince everyone that he has changed?
Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2021
I just loved Theo and Zoe's story. We get not only a love story but we get to meet a bunch of new kinds of shifters. I won't spoil it by telling you what they are but you might have some guesses since it is Greece after all.

Theo has come back to the island of Anemodous after ten years served in the French Foreign Legion. He left the island as a spoiled, reckless dragon youth and returned as a seasoned warrior. Unfortunately, the memories of the older shifters on the island are long and he will have to prove he has changed if he wants to win them over. His feelings on his return home are mixed. On the one hand, he is glad to be back in Greece and loves his island home, on the other hand, he has to face his father and the man's insistence that he marry if he wants to get his inheritance. He has watched many of his fellow legionnaires find their destined mates and fall in love and that what he wants for himself but he doesn't think his father is going to want to wait for that to happen. He has resigned himself to choosing one of the money-hungry women his father has lined up for him - until he sees a woman stand up to his father's posturing and then walk out on him. Wow, now that's his kind of woman. If only she wasn't a human...

Zoe has fallen in love with the island of Anemodous and wishes she could remain there forever but her job at an archaeological site is most likely a very short one. She is at the site on the empty east side of the island with only her donkey and a cat for company. She comes into the small village in the west side of the island once a week to send off a report about her findings and to check her personal email. The only thing she has really discovered is that the site and surrounding area has some kind of magic - not exactly something she can put into a report. Then she meets Theo and everything changes...

I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ever feel like a place is calling you home?
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2021
I have always enjoyed Anna Lowe's books. When she writes in a location like this, it makes me feel like I have discovered a private gem. Her stories have always stood out for me time and time again and this one is no different.

Zoe is an archeologist on a remote island in Greece. Ever since she had arrived the place seemed to have been calling home to her. Powerful people don't want her to discover anything of interest on the island, yet she feels that there is a story to be told in the ruins she is surveying.

Theo is a dragon shifter with a past. Even though the years of military service have caused him to grow up, he still needs to prove himself to the locals who only saw him as a spoiled rich brat. To earn the respect he has started to make amends, then he stumbles across Zoe who his dragon is insisting is his mate. However her bloodlines won't satisfy his father's conditions to earn his inheritance. So he must make a decision that is a hard call for any dragon shifter : Love or treasure?

5.0 out of 5 stars Spoiled Little Rich Kid Strives for Redemption
Reviewed in the United States on June 21, 2021
Once upon a time dragon - shifter Theo Lazaridis was a spoiled little rich kid but after serving ten years in the military he returns home. Where some things are the same while others have changed. He has finally met his Father's conditions in order to gain his inheritance but dear old Dad has yet one more condition get rid of that archaeologist a woman named Zoe with a fiery disposition before she finds something to encourage land developers.
Zoe is living her dream she has returned to sunny Greece to explore and categorize ancient archaeological finds to learn of its ancient history. She is welcomed by the land, earned the trust of Anemondas not sure if spelling is correct villagers and her neighbors Zaikis and his brothers centaurs tasked with keeping the east side of the island safe.

Theo gets hit right in the solar plexis when his dragon shouts mate but can he earn Zoe's love?

Now that's what I call a well rounded story because it has a dash of this and a bit of that with a whole lot of romance. This is another edition to Ms. Lowe's repertoire that I call out of the ball park because for me it rates beyond the five star limitation.

These words are my own opinion regarding a complimentary copy I voluntarily read. I have not been compensated in any way but don't take my word for it form your own opinion after you read it.
