PROMETHEUS – One of the keenest Titans to ever walk the earth. Until, that is, his weakness for the human race resulted in his imprisonment.

For thousands of years, Prometheus’s only certainty was his daily torture at Zeus’s hand. Now, unchained by the Eternal Guardians, he spends his days in solitude, trying to forget the past. He’s vowed no allegiance in the war between mortal and immortal, but when a beautiful maiden seeks him out and begs for his help, he’s once again powerless to say no. Soon, Prometheus is drawn into the very conflict he swore to avoid, and, to save the maiden’s life, he must choose sides. But she has a secret of her own, and if Prometheus doesn’t discover what she’s hiding in time, the world won’t simply find itself embroiled in a battle between good and evil, it will fall in total domination to Prometheus’s greatest enemy.


You know a book is good when you want two people to be together and these two people haven't really met. I am going to explain what I mean. Prometheus is practically a hermit and our heroine, Circe, is Zeus's prisoner trapped in a cave. In order to get free she must give Prometheus to Zeus, so there is plenty of conflict.

This is the first story I read in the series, but I loved the writing and the characters so I will be back for more. I am not usually a fan of books based on the Greek mythology, but lately I have started to like them. The author has talent and you can see it even in this novella. You think you know the characters, but they manage to surprise you with their actions. They are complicated and despite their flaws they were likeable. I was happy to not have another annoying heroine, but one with motivation even if it wasn't exactly the right one. I will definitely recommend the novella not only to the fans of the series, but also to someone who wants to read a very good short story.

ABOUT ELISABETH NAUGHTON: Elisabeth Naughton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Elisabeth: “I was never one of those people who knew they wanted to be an author at the age of six. I didn’t have imaginary friends. I didn’t write stories in my journal or entertain my relatives by firelight after Thanksgiving dinner. For the most part, I was just a normal, everyday kid. I liked to read, but I wasn’t exceptional at it. And when my teachers complimented me on my writing abilities, I brushed them off. I did, however, always have a penchant for the unique and absurd. And as my mother told me all throughout my childhood, I should have been an actress—I was a drama queen before my time.Visit Elisabeth Naughton’s website.
