The Ruin of Gods (Chronicles of the Stone Veil #8) by Sawyer Bennett ~ Book Review


The Ruin of Gods: A Stone Veil Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: April 11, 2023


A demigod ready to commit for eternity. A god who isn’t ready to commit at all. An unseen danger that may kill them both.

For centuries, I’ve traveled the realms, fighting wars, providing peace, causing havoc and everything in between. I’ve also sown my wild oats across those realms, taking pleasure when and where it’s offered. It’s a work hard, play harder lifestyle but I’m just the demigod to do it.

Zora is the god of Life but before that she was a mortal held captive, growing up without love or affection. Raised in the pits of Hell, she was a pawn in a sinister plan to destroy the world. Tossed into the life of an immortal deity, Zora is understandably closed off and confused about who she is and where she fits in. But the one place she fits perfectly is in my bed and the more time I spend with her, the more I’d like to keep her there permanently.

My attempts to win over the ethereal beauty are thwarted when a nefarious plan begins to unfold, leaving Zora missing and me scrambling to solve a mystery no one saw coming. As an immortal, time is of little importance but becomes a precious commodity where saving Zora is concerned.

I’ve lived centuries never knowing true love, but I know one thing with absolute certainty—Zora is what I need to complete my eternal life. Now I need to make sure she lives long enough to realize the same about me.

The Ruin of Gods is a standalone romantic fantasy novel about learning to love—both ourselves and another—within The Chronicles of the Stone Veil series.

CHRONICLES OF THE STONE VEIL Series is one that I highly recommend reading in the order of release, each of these books has a common thread that runs through them, and if you start with this one, you may not have the entire background to enjoy your read fully. I say this because Zora is Finley's twin sister, a sister she didn't know she had, and Finley's story takes place in the first five books.

Zora has only been a God for a year, and she is still trying to figure things out, but one thing she has been enjoying is her time with Maddox, a demigod. She has been having an affair with Maddox since they met, but no one knows. That is until she feels her involvement with him will cause him danger, so she breaks things off; let's say this wasn't handled well. 

Evils are at play here, and no one is safe, especially the gods. Will anyone figure out what is going on before the damage is done? Will Zora and Maddox get the HEA they so desperately deserve?  Will Zora find her rightful place amongst the Gods? These questions are answered in THE RUIN OF GODS, and we will get even more answers in the next book, THE RIVEN THIEF, which is due out later this year.

If you enjoy STEAMY Paranormal Romances, I recommend this book.

Happy Reading!!!
