Ayah Miller's having a hell of a day. She just buried her father, and found she's a millionaire. Now it turns out she's a pawn in a battle between Gods and a Goddess. At least, that's what Sevani, the hotass who just kissed her within an inch of her life, says. And if he's an Immortal Watcher, like he tells her, then he'd know.

It sure seems plausible when bullets start flying, swords start swinging, and only half the fighters are trying to kill her.

She's just starting to get comfortable with Sevani (and falling for him) when she learns it's probably not her he's been kissing: it's probably the soul of his long lost wife she's carrying.

Now there's no one she can trust. Not Sevani. Not Valeria, Alexander, and Lei who fight alongside him. Not Freya, the Goddess who created the Watchers, who hides behind her pretty smiles. And certainly not her family, because it's one of them who wants her dead.

Can she stay alive long enough to learn who she can trust, and whether she's who Sevani loves?

While I enjoyed Immortal Need by LeTeisha Newton, I will admit it was tough going at times. Not because it was poorly written. Not because the characters were difficult or lacking in development. No it was because it was a lot of information. Mythology figures huge within this story and Ms. Newton gave us lots of background and mythological information. At times it felt like too much but if you can make it through that you will enjoy this story as much as I did.
I enjoyed Ayah and Sevani. Both were strong characters with lots of responsibility. Sevani has been trifled with by the Gods and he continues to pay the price for it. And then he meets Ayah. Is she his second chance? Will Sevani chose Ayah over his mission? And if so what would be the cost? Ayah is both innocent and strong. She has lost her father and is struggling with grief when Sevani enters her life and shows her a dangerous new world that is less than fair. The rules are different and shaped by the whims of the Gods no one believes in anymore. Ms. Newton gives us two characters that had to fight to be together. And the secondary characters added a wonderful layer to not only the story but also the characters. Their interaction with Sevani’s comrades was wonderful and the loyalty they had for each other made me that much more invested in this story. Ms. Newton added layer upon layer to this story. She would resolve one story line while dangling more that I couldn’t wait to follow to its conclusion. I enjoyed seeing what would happen next and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Newton has in store for Sevani and his “family.”
