Divine Ecstasy by Setta Jay


The slave of demented Gods, Sacha knew only a life of anguish and suffering until she was reborn as a Guardian of the Realms. Gifted with immense strength and rare abilities, she has spent thousands of years battling to protect the four Realms with her Guardian family. Time has allowed her to construct the perfect mask of calm and control so none can see the past shame and immense pain buried in the darkest recesses of her mind. Now, an encounter with a new and powerful enemy has left Sacha the victim of a poison induced coma that all are unable to heal. The last thing anyone imagines waking her is a God with the strength and potential to unravel her entire world.

As the most powerful of the Gods, Hades was awakened from the Creators’ enforced sleep to help the Guardians in their quest to find his heinous brother, Apollo. After a brutal battle with an unknown Goddess leaves him in need of healing he finds himself powerfully drawn into the room of a sleeping seductress. Her soul calls to him relentlessly, but if he surrenders himself to that connection and gives her the strength to heal, life as he knows it will end.

With their worlds unraveling and new threats at every turn will Sacha’s past destroy them? Or will she bring a God to his knees and lead them both into Divine Ecstasy.

FINALLY we get a story about a Female Guardian!

While all of these stories are super, ridiculously HOT – this story was a bit different from the previous books.

First of all we have Sacha, aka Bastian's "mom," who has been severely injured in battle with an unknown foe. She's missed much of the action (Drake, Hades, etc.) and is awoken to quite the surprise. Hades, always known as a Ladies Man, comes to the rescue for the Guardians once again, but not in the traditional way. ;)

As overprotective as the male Guardians are, Hades really puts them to shame – and it's fantastic to behold.

As awesome as this series is, I did miss the "Frenzy" and Blood Bonding rituals in this story – but I do understand how/why they were bypassed.

As can be expected, the main story keeps getting more amped and I can NOT wait to get my hands on the next book!

This is the ninth in the series and you really do need to read them in order to understand the underlying quest, and the ongoing side relationships too. As we can assume from the title, this book involves not just a Guardian, but a Deity. This does change the dynamics from previous stories, and gives us some insight into the past fights that Hades has had with his fellow Gods.

We start with Sacha still out cold and no sense that she can be healed – yet Hades holds their combined future in his hands. As their pasts collide with their fate, they have a lot of learning to do. The passion and intensity is much more cerebral than in previous stories – although it is still just as hot when they do come together. Even though it is thousands of years in the past, the treatment that Sacha suffered at the hands of Hades’ brothers causes them both great pain – but their strength together is proven as they seal their physical bond as well as their souls. The ongoing plot is definitely changed now that a God is on the side of the Guardians, but it remains to be seen just what a difference this will make in the next story.

Setta Jay is the author of the popular Guardians of the Realms Series. She's garnered attention and rave reviews in the paranormal romance world for writing smart, slightly innocent heroines and intense alpha males. She loves writing stories that incorporate a strong plot with a heavy dose of heat. Her influences include Judith McNaught who she feels writes a smart heroine to perfection, Gena Showalter, Maya Banks and Lora Leigh.  You can often find her writing compared to JR Ward, but if you are a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood be warned that Setta Jay’s novels are more erotic in nature.

Born a California girl, she currently resides in Idaho with her husband of ten plus years who she describes as incredibly sexy and supportive, even when it’s Willy Wednesday on Twitter. ;) 

She loves to hear from readers so feel free to find her on social media or send her an email and she will happily reply.
