Sevilen is an engineer, his life is mapped out predictable, it makes sense; until the death of his Great grandmother, when he is forced to reluctantly accept and learn the gifts that are his birth right, and save the woman he has been meant to love and protect. The power of the universe is his to create and destroy if he could just figure out for sure if it’s all a silly dream or reality.
Leyna is a powerful and cruel top notch executive, she targets men exploiting their weakness and then seeks out to destroy them and ruin their lives, they are play things for her amusement nothing more, she seeks power and has no use for relationships.
When the two are thrown together they must come together and fulfill their destiny's as gods and learn what they must of the seven gates or they will be doomed to seek each other out again in the next life and until they right their mistakes from the past.
This was a very different read for me and I am having a hard time comparing it with anything I have ever read before, I really liked the premise of the story, the easy way the characters interact with one another they are very laid back Sevilen's Great Grandmother is constantly making passes at him, which is both uncomfortable and funny at the same time. The passage of time in the book is done beautifully and flows very well transitioning from POV without being distracting. I found myself confused for the better half of this book which I found frustrating, and a little distracting. I wasn't sure what was going on or what to make of it; I wasn't sure if the author did it on purpose so you could empathize with Sevilen's confusions and reluctance to accept his new reality or if I was just being daft and not getting it. Once I figured out what was going on and understood the concept of the knowledge of the seven gates and the Chakras and how this was going to impact their lives as they know it I enjoyed the story much more, although I will be honest it is still slightly confusing. Its core is a love story about two people that have to find their way back to each other after centuries apart. This is a good book for those who love the fantasy genre or the paranormal genre's it will grab your attention, will make you laugh as you root for this unlikely couple trying to figure out their abilities, and where they belong in this world and the beyond with the help of their mentors.
I gave this book a 3 out of 5 star rating.
