Review: Shadow and Ice (Gods of War) by Gena Showalter

Book Blurb

Knox of Iviland, the most ruthless warrior in All War history, has spent his life fighting others to the death, winning new realms for his king. Now the stakes are higher than ever. If he prevails in the battle for Earth, his slave bands will be removed. Victory is his sole focus…until he meets her.

On an arctic getaway with her foster sister, street tough but vulnerable Vale London is shocked to stumble upon a cave filled with ancient gods waging epic combat. When she is inadvertently drawn into their war, she is forced to team up with an unlikely ally—the sexy god who makes her burn with desire.

Though Vale is his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can triumph, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

This is the beginning of a new series from a favorite author.  I was ecstatic to read it.  It was a very unique storyline.  Alien races come to earth to hold an All Worlds War to control it.  Knox is the Champion from his world.  The champions battle to the death.  I love how they get imprisoned for centuries.  So, the war is put on hold.
Enter in Vale and her sister during modern times.  The champions are freed, and the battle continues.  Guess who gets caught in the middle.  It was a great story.  Vale gets pulled in deeper when she becomes a competitor.  She has Knox protecting and helping her.  They don’t trust each other, so the beginning of the partnership is a bit bumpy.  It is a fun read how Vale is this force to be reckoned with and Knox is truly at a loss.  He could kill her, but he doesn’t want to yet.  He is torn and confused, so he fights his feelings.  Typical man, which makes it interesting to read.  I like how Vale changes him a little at a time.

The Reader is introduced to a new cast of characters.  Knox and Vale were the beginning.  The rest of the competitors form their group.  Unfortunately, there are two groups.  It will be interesting to see what the author throws at the reader next.  She has set the stage to really make things interesting.  It was a great read.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
