Review & Giveaway: Eclipsing Apollo by Sasha Summers

Eclipsing Apollo
by Sasha Summers


GENRE: Paranormal Romance/Fantasy Romance



Apollo is fond of many things. Music, poetry, physical prowess, truth, and love. The Pythian Games are held in his honor and he attends, as a mere mortal, to enjoy the competition... and the women. Meeting the fair Coronis offers him his greatest delight. Her strength, her beauty, and her fearlessness clasp his heart with an irrevocable hold. But she wants none of him. 

Coronis' duty is to marry, but she yearns for so much more. She is a fierce competitor, a hunter, skilled in strategy and reason. Those that would court her lack both the mind and the body to rival hers - she will settle for no less. As a mortal, Apollo was both infuriating and tempting. But Apollo the Olympian is terrifying. She fears giving him her heart might destroy her soul. 

Demeter's need for revenge pits Olympian against Olympian, forcing Apollo into a darkness the God of Light must fight if he ever hopes to see his Coronis again.


My Review :

I love ancient Greece: its history, its art, and especially its myths. So it's impossible not to love a story starring Apollo. It 's a fantasy really captivating and engaging, the love story is sweet and tormenting also very sensual.
In Delphi, far from Olympus where he usually lives, Apollo accidentally meets Coronis and falls in love with her. But she is afraid of suffering and rejectes him. When she discovers that he's a God and is immortal, she becomes even more skeptical: it could never work between them. But Apollo is so awesome and is the god of love: she can't resist for long. Their love, however, will be hindered also by envy and jealousy of other Olympian gods, especially Poseidon and Daphne. Will their love triumph?
It's the third book in the series "Loveof Olympus": I have not read the other two books, I hadn't great difficulty but perhaps would have been perfect to read the series in order. However I can not wait to read the previous books.
I loved every single page of this book. There are many references to Greek mythology and the relationship between gods and mortals. It 's a romance intriguing, passionate with several twists and an unexpected ending.
Highly recommended to those who love Greek mythology and romantic stories



Her fear increased, making it hard to breathe. Do not let him fall. She turned, her stomach tightening as her gaze met Apollo’s. You must win. You must.

Apollo smiled broadly, his brow rising high.

She pulled her gaze from his, walking past him to the competitors’ tent. He would follow her, she knew it. They had little time to prepare. She must help him bathe and anoint him with oil before he met Damocles in the ring.

Her champion. She shivered, pushing into the tent. She lit a lamp and drew in a steadying breath. She was not a fretful sort, so why was she so afraid? Why did he unsettle her?

She knew the answer but refused to address the ache… the yearning that tugged her heart.

No, no.

She poured water into a beaten copper basin, grabbed the bottle of oil, and turned to him. His gaze caught hers and he cocked his head, assessing her.

An amused smile wreathed his too-handsome face. “Do not fret Coronis. You’ve not broken your word to me. You said you would never ask for my help. And you did not.” He moved forward slowly, towering over her. His smile faltered as he studied her, intently… possessively. “You will never have to. I give it to you freely. I always will.”

She stared up at him, astonished. Her suitors flattered her with pretty words, poetry, even song. But no man spoke to her so plainly. Or dared to look at her as he did.

His gaze wandered over her face. He seemed to linger over every feature, tracing the arch of her brow, the curve of her forehead, the seam of her lips, and angle of her jaw—before pinning her gaze with his. “Do I frighten you, Coronis?” his voice was low, almost a whisper.

She stared into his eyes, fathomless and golden. What was he asking? Was she afraid of the depths of emotion he stirred within her? Was she fearful of how her body trembled, anticipating the moment when they might touch? Or that she dreaded his departure so that she could neither eat nor sleep. She shook her head, unable to answer.
