The last thing Rebecca Massee expects on her wedding day is to go from jilted kindergarten teacher to Amazonian Earth warrior. But when she causes an earthquake after her groom says I don't, she discovers that not only does she possess incredible powers, she is one of four lost chosen sisters who must fight to keep humanity safe from rogue gods and demons. Luckily she has help: ruggedly handsome Scottish warrior Artair MacKay, her protector and teacher.
An immortal, Artair has trained countless warriors for more than four hundred years. He understands Rebecca's confusion at the new world she's been thrust into and worries she is too emotionally vulnerable, but that doesn't stop his growing feelings for the beautiful and fearless woman.
When an evil force threatens to destroy the Amazons, Rebecca must claim her full powers - but they come at a cost. Can she sacrifice the man she loves if it means saving the world?
Okay being a reluctant amazon is one thing, but continually repeating the whole thing about not being ready or tough or good enough gets old after awhile. This had the potential to be a good sister kick but book. They had the potential to have a lot attitude but the author falls flat in illustrating that with each of our amazon ladies .The comic relief was bad. The highlander was awful. And you fine yourself wanting to scream if he utters Becamine one more time. The narration wasn’t good, but the story didn’t give her much to work with. The book was to long. I don’t know if I should blame the evolution of this bad book on the author or the editors who could have clean and trimmed this book up. I can’t recommend it.

I began this book feeling optimistic, but was let down by the drone of the narrators voice. I believe the book has great potential, and I may just read it on my own without the narration, but I couldn't finish this book. This morning I literally had to talk myself into listening to it some more, and after 15 seconds of narration, I had to stop and just remove it from my phone.
As for the story itself, it is similar to the Percy Jackson series, just a more adult version. Great characters, a good plot, and definitely something different than what I've read so far. There wasn't any kink, but some steamy parts made me feel warm and tingly inside. Of course listening to the narrator read those parts probably diminished the feelings somewhat. I give the story a good rating, but I think it could have gotten a better rating if the author had hired a different narrator to read her book.
