Book Review - The Heart of War by Ms. Lisa Beth Darling


When Ares the God of War investigates an intrusion on his island exile, he never imagines that the castaway running from her future will save his.  Banished from Olympus for crimes he didn’t commit, Ares has grown comfortable on his isolated island, content with the company of his guards and his harem of women. 
Magdalena, claimed as a child bride of a Celtic god, wakes up bound and beaten on a remote island confused by memory loss.  However, anything is better than the fate imposed on her by an ancient god.  With the mistrustful help of Ares, they must

Distrusting each other, but thrown together by fate, they discover she is a pawn in a murderous plot stretching back hundreds of years.


Ms. Darling takes characters from ancient legends and breathes new life into them.  Her blend of mythology and modern issues is well written and inspiring.  The characters stay true to themselves and show once again that love can conquer all, but only after a hard, vicious fight.  I found the characters engaging, sympathetic and very memorable.  I definitely want to see how the story progresses. 

Warning: this novel is intended for ADULTS ONLY.  It is not recommended for the faint of heart.  It contains several scenes of graphic sex and violence.   As a dark erotic romance, there are scenes that will make your blood boil, your stomach churn, and break your heart.  

MATURITY RATING - 18+ VERY steamy (scenes containing graphic torture, sex, and sexual violence)


Lisa Beth Darling is never one to shy away from the less pleasant things in life, indeed she believes that it is in the Darkness where Character is created, determined, and defined. Lisa's heroes and heroines have their love tested by demons from within and without. Writing with a passionate flare and unflichingly venturing where other writers dare not tread, Lisa creates novels filled with heart stopping action, gripping drama, nail biting suspense, and hot steamy sex. This is Dark Erotic Romance at its gritty best. Therefore, ALL FICTION works are intended for Members of A Mature Adult Audience who love to submerse themselves in the rich seduction of worlds full of love, lust, rage, redemption, obsession, betrayal and madness. They are not intended for the faint of heart or those who enjoy a sweet read.
