Damnamenos

Children of Poseidon 3

Much like the previous book, "Damnamenos" focuses more on the potential end of the world and the danger the witches are in rather than the romance. Your mileage may vary as to whether this works.

It was interesting because I liked Maya in the first book and didn't like her much in the second book, whereas Damnamenos seemed like the villain at the middle of the first book and got better after. I thought that Maya behaved a bit too inflexibly and arrogantly in the second book and that did get better in this book, thankfully. However, I wanted to see more of Damnamenos's change of character/redemption and it would have been nice if Maya could have made him grovel a bit more.

That said, the story ends with a satisfying bang with most of the threads neatly tied up, so for those looking for a good finish, this does the trick.


Book Blurb for Damnamenos

Damnamenos, youngest son of Poseidon, has always viewed himself as a modern demi-god—an equal opportunity sorcerer who runs an international business empire while plotting revenge on his faithless ex-lover. He likes to think he has his life under control, but when evil threatens his world, he needs to summon all his old magic to deal with it.

Maya Redcar, a young witch just coming into her full power, finds herself leading her coven’s fight against a corrupt and insane sorcerer. Realising that the witches are outclassed, she joins forces with her old nemesis, Damnamenos, to confront the enemy in his East African lair.

Together, Maya and Damnam face old lovers, cursed seawitches, a preternatural infant, and unreasonable parents, on their quest to save the world. Their growing attraction could be a source of strength, or as Maya fears, a new point of vulnerability as they are torn apart by their enemy’s magic.
