Anubis has been an Earth Warrior for centuries and he never thought he’d return to the place where he died. Yet his next mission sends him back to Petra, his original home before the Gods chose to interfere in his life. He goes to Petra to authenticate some artifacts found at a dig site. There he meets Dr. Jamil Ahlid, the head archaeologist, and discovers someone he could love.

Dr. Jamil Ahlid has a once in a lifetime chance to dig at Petra and he discovers artifacts from an unheard of civilization. In doing so, he also uncovers something so dangerous that his very life could be forfeit. Meeting Anubis ends up being the best thing that happens to him. Especially when men come for what he’s found.

Anubis has to call on his brothers, but will they be enough to keep Jamil alive and the artifact safe?

Review: Anubis, an earth warrior, is sent on a mission to find out what artifact archaeologist, Jamil, has discovered. He finds he has to face his past while keeping his true self a secret from Jamil. 

I really enjoyed this story as I love stories about Egyptian gods and shifters. Well written with adventure, action, mystery and danger as Anubis must try and protect Jamil from someone who wants a powerful book that has been thought lost for centuries and will stop at nothing to attain it.

I loved the peeks into who Anubis was and what transpired all those years ago before he was killed and changed. It was heart-breaking to say the least. I also loved all the wonderful tidbits about the different artifacts throughout. I find it fascinating when an author combines ancient stories into modern ones with twists and turns. 

I certainly hope there will be more books in this fascinating series. Highly recommended.

Blurb: Kellan Largant and Bastet are drawn into an ancient battle while learning to love each other.

Kellan Largent is a grad student at Harvard. His thesis is on ancient Egyptian religious cults. While immersed in his research, he comes across an obscure reference to the Earth Warrior cult. Little does he know that one sentence in a dusty tattered book will engulf him in a battle between good and evil. A battle that could be the end of the world as he knows it.

The stray cat wandering the streets around Kellan’s house is more than an abandoned feline. Bastet has roamed the earth from the days when Egypt was young. He’s watched the pharaohs rise and fall. New gods come and go. His purpose has remained the same: Protect the earth at all costs and keep the secrets of the Earth Warriors from regular mortals. He’s sent to keep Kellan Largent from finding out the truth about the cult, but also to keep the unsuspecting college student alive.

One man will do anything for the spell that created the Warriors. He wants immortality and killing Kellan for the secret is just the beginning of the trouble he’ll cause to get what he wants.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Bastet is one of eight brothers who are chosen by a Egyptian god and tasked with protecting earth. They are called Earth Warriors and have the ability to shift into whatever animal represents that particular god. Bastet’s animal is a cat.

Kellan is a university student at Harvard. While collecting information on his thesis he stumbles across the knowledge of Earth Warriors. Bastet needs to get close to him to find out what he knows so he meets him as cat then as a man. The attraction between the two is immediate.

Bastet is to keep Kellan from finding out the truth about the Earth Warriors and their existence but things do not go as planned when a man hellbent on finding the spell to make the warriors will stop at nothing from attaining it.

I liked the story as it contains mystery, suspense, drama, shifters and a great plot, that grabs the reader’s attention and keeps their attention. As well as the Earth Warriors themselves as I found them fascinating. I would like to more about how they came to be the earth warriors, why they were chosen and the circumstances surrounding their deaths.  

Great read.
