Guest Review: Twisted by Elisabeth Naughton

by 1/12/2015 0 comments

NickLeader of the half-breeds and the last true hero. He’s spent his life fighting a dark pull toward the gods. A pull he now knows is linked to his father Krónos and the Titan’s plan to escape from the Underworld.

But Nick’s hidden powers are coveted by more than just his father. Imprisoned by Hades, Nick battles every form of torture imaginable as the sadistic god schemes to break him. Only one thing is keeping him sane. One woman who gives him the strength to fight the relentless darkness. She has a dangerous plan of her own, though, and as Nick’s powers grow stronger, even she might not be enough to alter his destiny.

As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, Nick’s allegiances are tested. And no one knows whether he will choose to fight for good or succumb to the sinister lure of evil. Not even him.


If you have had the pleasure of reading this series from the beginning, you will understand why this book is so satisfying. The author continues to enhance the complex world of the Argonauts.  Through each successive book, Elisabeth Naughton has added complicated and satisfying layers.  This is one of her best. 

Nick is the quintessential anti-hero with a heart of gold. His presence in book one, Marked, is both menacing and protective. As an other, (as in non-human), he extends himself to the Misos, the half breeds of humans and Argonauts.  Nick has had a presence in each book and FINALLY we get his story. 

Cynna is his perfect counterpart.  Of course, she is strong, but she is also courageous and she is a little dark. He finds the woman who can understand his dark, twisted side.  With that connection, they help keep their darkness in check.  It is a pleasure to watch them interact. This couple is not Superman and Wonderwoman. They are Batman and Catwoman.

This is a great addition to the series. I've always loved Nick and I'm thrilled at where Elisabeth Naughton took this story. Yeah for the anti-hero!

Thank you to the author, publisher for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
