As the son of Hades and a Guardian of the Realms, Pothos has been gifted with immense power to protect the inhabitants of the four Realms of Earth. When the evil God Apollo is stolen and the Guardians are forced to wake Hades from his sleeping confinement, P is faced with a long held dangerous secret; that he was born of two worlds. Learning that his mother was a Priestess from the unknown world of Thule, Hades also confesses that P has been kept hidden from all who dwell there as his very life is in danger the moment their Gods learn of his existence. As P struggles to make sense of the life he has lived and what this means for his future he finds himself forcibly pulled into Thule by an unstoppable divine force. Bracing for attack, he instead finds himself faced with a threat of a different sort, a beautiful golden Goddess who calls to the very depths of his soul.

Gefn is a Goddess of Thule, dedicated to the preservation of her world. A world constantly faced with wildly shifting energy left behind in the wake of warring Gods. Haunted after witnessing the brutal murders of her closest friends, her Priestesses, she has lived a life of relative loneliness but for her few remaining siblings and her pair of giant, magical lynx gifted to her at birth. They are Guardians of Thule and her most trusted companions. When they lead her to a hidden garden outside her missing sister’s palace she is shocked to find a winged male who calls to her most primal desires, unleashing her power in a way that sweeps her into a passion she’s never known. His sudden disappearance leads her and her brothers into a tense and deadly standoff in another world.

As both worlds collide will Pothos and Gefn’s unique mating end in his death? Or will the strength of their love help them survive a storm of ecstasy as they uncover more secrets that could save them all?

Warning: Gods gone crazy, bad language, dirty talk, and explicit scenes meant for mature audiences.



WOW! Another HAWT and DELICIOUS story!

I wait with great anticipation for each new installment in the Guardians of the Realms series. There is just so much mouthwatering yumminess to savor.

This novel ups the stakes and brings the fierce and fiery mate frenzy to a new high. We are treated to some riveting developments that come thick and fast leaving you awed.

The guardians world is vast, but now we get this new realm of Thule to further our excitement and satisfaction. Ms. Jay weaved this new world flawlessly into the overall story.

Pathos, finally is ensnared in the mating frenzy with someone even more powerful then imagined. He’s a sexy as sin Guardian and a very dominant male. I liked seeing that he appreciates Gefn’s abilities and strengths. I also liked that they both accepted the fated mate thing, because their was a lot of other stuff happening.

Storm of Ecstasy is another cataclysmic, sensual, and sultry read! It’s a nice blend of romance and eroticism. If you enjoy explosive erotic paranormal romance and haven’t yet tired Setta Jay’s Guardians of the Realms series you are in for a fiery treat. Delicious paranormal goodness ensues. We are treated to another explosive read after another in this series!

Rated: 4.5 Stars

  1. I’m not familiar with this series. Sounds good, but also sounds like I need to start at the beginning. I was lost just reading the blurb. haha Thanks for the review!

    • This series is best in order. Each book builds on the other just a little more in the world and what is to come. We also get a peek as to who the next couple will be. It’s a very sizzling series. It’s not for the faint of heart, some of the books are a little more hard core, with each Guardian and character enjoying certain things in their bedroom play.
