PROMETHEUS – One of the keenest Titans to ever walk the earth. Until, that is, his weakness for the human race resulted in his imprisonment.
For thousands of years, Prometheus's only certainty was his daily torture at Zeus's hand. Now, unchained by the Eternal Guardians, he spends his days in solitude, trying to forget the past. He's vowed no allegiance in the war between mortal and immortal, but when a beautiful maiden seeks him out and begs for his help, he's once again powerless to say no. Soon, Prometheus is drawn into the very conflict he swore to avoid, and, to save the maiden's life, he must choose sides. But she has a secret of her own, and if Prometheus doesn't discover what she's hiding in time, the world won't simply find itself embroiled in a battle between good and evil, it will fall in total domination to Prometheus's greatest enemy.

Zeus isn't known for his benevolence, and that certainly holds true in UNCHAINED.
Prometheus thinks he's going mad. After being tortured for years by Zeus, he's escaped to an abandoned Aegean castle. He's been having daydreams about a beautiful woman with fire red hair and emerald eyes who keeps begging for him to find her. Circe has been held captive by Zeus for way too long, so she's used her magic to reach out to someone she knows hates the God as much as she does. But she's not telling Prometheus the whole truth…will he still want her when he finds out who she really is?
UNCHAINED is a novella in the Eternal Guardians series by Ms. Naughton, as well as an offering in the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.
I'm slightly obsessed with Greek mythology, so Ms. Naughton's Eternal Guardians series is right up my alley. This was an interesting story, especially since most of the book took place with Circe weaving magic so she can see Prometheus, appear to him in person and jump his sexy, thousands-of-years-old bones. He was pretty introverted, a result of not wanting to be near people after having his guts torn out every day by Zeus' eagle. He thinks he's going mad seeing and hearing Circe but her not really being there. This book is short and hot, with a nice passionate magical interlude between the two of them. A great addition to the Eternal Guardians series.
Bottom Line: Quick and fun summer read with Gods, Titans, Argonauts and one sexy sorceress.
