Phyre has a haunting past. The girl without a last name and fire in her hands burns with a history of destruction to save herself. Solace is finally found in the cozy comfort of Hestia’s Home, a place for women who need hiding. Just like her five surrogate sisters-in-solitude, Phyre yearns to extinguish memories and rekindle her spirit. Her plan blazes forward until he arrives.

Hephaestus Cronus considers himself an ugly man. A near-death accident left him disabled but not without heart. His gratitude lies with the protection of his foster mother, Hestia. Running from a failed relationship, Heph only desires the familiar fires of the hearth at her home. Burned from the heartache, Heph never expected to spark a new flame in the rose-bud-cherry-haired girl missing a name.

This modern tale of Hephaestus, the metal working god, rights the wrong of a crippled man failed at love. Here the flaming passion he deserved as an under-recognized god is written in a new fashion with the fiery spirit of a woman who ignites true love between these twin flames.

My Review

Heph is book three in the Modern Descendants series by Author Elda Lore. It is a paranormal romance of the gods.

“I don’t want to just think of you, though. I want to experience you. Every curve, every dip, every fold. All of you around all of me.”

Heph and Phyre are two very unique characters with gifts that are equally as special. It seems that neither will ever find a true love that they can trust…with everything.

I wanted to take her horrors and burn them alive. I wanted to lock the door and keep the demons away for her. I wanted to protect her from ever having to face such sin again.

The novel, Heph, was a love so complicated and riddled with road blocks and special circumstances.  Heph was the good guy who was so easily misunderstood.  He had a heart of gold, which frequently resulted in him falling into some sticky situations.  Phyre was an enigma.  She held a gift that many would think to be impressive and something to be proud of, but to her it was more of an undesired curse. She needed a hero and a champion. That man was Heph.  And I melted just typing that. A heaviness settled in my heart when realizing the lengths these two would have to go to in order to be together.

An arrow to a bow, he shot straight at my heart, and our connection hit the target. Branded forever, Heph’s name tattooed on the vessel keeping me alive.

This story was filled with angst and some beguiling twists that kept my fingers flipping pages and my eyes zoned into ever word.  I loved the setting, a place of solace and help to those in need. It was an essential part of the story as a whole and for our main characters. I also couldn’t get enough of the secondary secondary characters…some from previous books which brought great sentiments, and one new one in particular that I am DYING to get in my hands.  Good grief!  This author knows how to keep me coming back for more.

“My name is Phyre. And I’m the whole flame.”

Seductive and mysterious, Heph was a slow burn of destiny that lit up my Kindle with a rare and precious love.

“You’re my compass. My home.”
