Book Review – Bound to the Battle God

When I went to my neighbor’s apartment to investigate strange sounds, I never expected to fall through a portal into another world. Yet here I am, a stranger in an even stranger land… and I’m stranded. In this world, might makes right, men carry swords, and gods walk the earth. Within minutes of arriving, I’m enslaved!

Fun place…

How do I get home? GREAT question. Wish I had an answer!

The one person that might be able to help me is also the one person I want to throttle most. Aron, Lord of Storms, Butcher God of Battle, is my new companion. Or rather, I’m his. As Aron’s anchor to the mortal realm, I’m the one that’s supposed to be guiding him through his exile in the mortal world…

Ha. Joke’s on him. I know nothing about this place!

But Aron and I have a common goal – get home. And we’re bonded – anchor and god – with a bond unlike any other. So we travel together. We bicker. We bathe together. We fight our many, many enemies together. And sure, he’s a god, but he’s also an arrogant jerk. Brawny, smoking hot, irresistible jerk. I should want nothing to do with him. I certainly shouldn’t want to do things to him…

Mortals and gods don’t mix. We stick to the plan and ignore our attraction. Focused, with one goal in mind…

One task… 
One goal… 
Focused!

I-oh heck, I’m going to end up kissing him again, aren’t I?

Feet Under Books!

I had a hard time getting into this book, but once I got over the hump I couldn’t put it down. I had a love/hate relationship with Aron.

Faith is unceremoniously dropped into a new realm/era if you will. She is plucked up and sold as a slave – an offering to the Lord of Storms. Only she ends up offering herself to him as an anchor instead of a sacrifice. Through their travels to find the other pieces of Aron; Lord of Storms and Battle, they meet up with other Gods. Faith is not a warrior or a fighter. She is Aron’s anchor to the mortal realm. She must stay alive, to serve Aron. As they pass through the mortal plane, trying to figure out their next step. Faith falls for Aron. Yet doesn’t understand why he is not into her. But God’s don’t love, do they? Faith is the only one who can help Aron ascend to the Aether. Will she sacrifice it all for him? Or will she go back home to Earth?

The Lord of Storms forbids Faith to die, that he will keep her safe. Yet he is not prepared for what lies ahead for him and his anchor. The challenges he must face alone. As well as her challenges to him. He faces a lot of obstacles if he is to make it back in one piece. Can he do it with his army? And what about Faith once he returns home? What is her fate?

This story is told by Faith. It’s her struggles and witty comebacks that keeps this story moving along. Because she doesn’t just roll over and take his crap. God or not, he is not her God. Faith has her own agenda as the story progresses and you will be torn in her choices just like she is.

The book is very lengthy and some of the fat could have been trimmed, but honestly, it’s a good book! This is the 2nd book I’ve read by Ruby Dixon. I will read more, she is the queen of making you wait out the good stuff.
