Synopsis

Terra Materson knew moving to Atchison College would take some getting used to. But she didn’t expect to discover she had the spirit of an ancient goddess inside her.

It’s a lot to process. Not to mention the four overprotective guys who have made it their mission to take Terra under their wing. But as her connection to Ross, Cael, Endo, and Sol intensifies, so too does her need for the truth.

Her protectors want to keep her safe. The witches need her power. And her new friends just want her to live a little. But as her hidden memories slowly return, Terra is left questioning who she can trust. Because with magic in the air, anyone could be an enemy and nothing may be as it seems…

Coveted is the second book in The Gaia Chronicles, an urban fantasy reverse harem series, and must be read after book #1: Cursed. Recommended for readers 17+

Review

Things are hotting up in this 4.5 star read….

I am really becoming obsessed by this young adult, paranormal reverse harem story…this is a classic story of good versus evil, and the power of love and the sacrifices that are made in its name….at its centre is a slow burning romance with Terra and her four protectors; although things certainly do hot up in this book….now that the introductions have been made the plot is beginning to pick up and more and more secrets are being revealed; in particular, through the device of Terra’s dreams, the reader is drip fed snippets from the past that resonate in the present and for the future….

The author expertly creates shades of light and dark there is some tantalising foreshadowing of a menacing voyeur, right from the start, bent on revenge and the destruction of Terra and her guys….Ross, Cael, Sol and Endo I love that each of them has a distinct personality and the gradual reveal of past hurts, misunderstandings and secrets makes them all the more intriguing and real…. I am not too sure if I am supposed to have a favourite..I certainly don’t want Terra to choose…but there is something attractive about a brooding, strong male and Sol is that in full measure…. I always imagined it would be magical to be treated like a goddess by a man, or men for that matter, but the reality for Terra is not quite as liberating or perfect….

This is a carefully constructed alternative universe; an epic story in which the characters experience a myriad of feelings switching from fear and anger to joy, laughter and happiness in a heartbeat; another cliffhanger left me excited to continue the journey…
