ARC Review: The Wrath by Gena Showalter

For centuries, Rathbone the Only, King of Agonies, has existed for one recovering the enchanted bones of his slain wife to bring her back to life. He’s never been closer to success. But a new enemy has risen. A band of deadly war gods who have thirty days to destroy her or suffer the consequences. With time running out, Rathbone hires a maddening harpy-oracle, unaware she has an agenda of her own.

Neeka the Unwanted is a fierce warrior on a stop Rathbone and the gods. She’s seen the future if either is victorious, and it’s horrifying. She’ll do whatever proves necessary to forge a new path, even seduce the ruthless royal from his purpose. What she can’t predict? How the intense male will shatter her hard-won defenses along the way.

As Rathbone battles unexpected betrayals, cunning foes and the wild temptress he craves with every fiber of his being, he knows he must hold on to a cold dream or embrace a new flame.
I was so lucky to get an early copy of The Wrath and all I can say is wow. Okay, I'm going to say more than just that, but you get the idea. What I love so much about reading books by Gena Showalter is that for me at least they are comfort reads. Those books that you know before reading them that you can going to go in and visit friends. I think part of that comes from her wonderful ability to grow a world for you. Authors like this is why after so many books I'm still excited to get a new one. 

I loved both Rathborn and Neeka. They are both the type of characters that keep your emotions bouncing up and down. I never knew what I was going to feel page to page. At times I was angry, other times I wanted to cry. Not to worry there are some chuckles in there also. You can't read a book by Showalter without laughing. 

I felt for these characters and all they went through. So much happens and you never know who you can trust. Often you thought is bad isn't vice versa. The story kept me on my toes. I often found myself not wanting to put the book do to those pesty things we have to do like make dinner. I think if you're a reader of Showalter than you are going to be so happy for this book. If you haven't yet read her, you are in for a treat. I myself would go back to book one and read them in order. You don't have to read the first series but reading this one in order will enhance the stories.
