Marked by Elisabeth Naughton

THERON—Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly. He’s the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld.

From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn’t exist in real life—silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking
for something. Her.

She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron’s duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn’t strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body.

As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

This was a great introduction to Elisabeth Naughton's world of the Argonauts. The mythology she created was refreshing and drew me right into the story. There were only rare moments that I felt the story slowed down, which in turn, kept the book moving quickly. I really enjoyed the characters and am looking forward to seeing more of them in future books. The sexual tension between Casey and Theron runs rampant throughout the book and each different twist will keep you turning page after page. Elisabeth takes pieces from here and there of Greek Mythology and seamlessly mixes it with the modern day world, establishing a distinctive and intense beginning to this series.
