The Reluctant Savior
(Etherya’s Earth #4)
My Rating: 5/5 stars
Evie, daughter of virtuous Princess Rina and malicious Deamon King Crimeous, is a woman torn in half. The first centuries of her life taught her fervent lessons about pain and suffering. For ages, she suppressed her mother’s noble blood, crafting a reality where she was drifting alone, needing no one. Until an ancient prophecy calls to her, possibly creating a purpose for her squalid existence.
Kenden has commanded the Slayer army for a thousand years. Strong, cunning and loyal, he longs for the day when Crimeous has been defeated and he can settle down to build a family. Focused on conquering the Dark Lord, he is stunned when Evie makes a brazen demand that must be fulfilled before she chooses to fight with them.
Although incensed by Evie’s ultimatum, Kenden has never desired a woman more than the flame-haired vixen. Though she stirs his ire, he also has a deep well of compassion for the beauty who suffered so much trauma centuries ago. Together they train and by night their connection grows, building toward the moment when they will battle her father. But, in the end, Evie has a choice and struggles to espouse righteousness over malevolence. For when one’s worst fears are exposed, the evil is so much easier to embrace…
**The Etherya’s Earth series is best read in order, so that the reader can enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a good twist and wants the reader to uncover them organically. However, readers of romance rest assured that each book has its own featured hero/heroine and HEA.
The Reluctant Savior is the fourth book in author Rebecca Hefner’s Etherya’s Earth series. For those of us who have been following this series from the beginning, this is the book we’ve all been waiting for, to see if Crimeous can finally be defeated by Evie!
Evie is the daughter of the Dark Lord, Crimeous and Princess Rina of the Slayers. She is sister to Darkrip from the previous book and half-sister to Miranda from the first book.
Kenden is the cousin of Miranda from book one in the series. He’s been the Commander of the Slayer army for thousands of years.
Well, WOW, just WOW! When you’re four books into a series, you think that you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. But Ms. Hefner is full of surprises! This book was everything I hoped it would be and even more than I could have imagined.
Ken and Evie have been a couple I’ve been anxiously waiting to see get together since their first meeting in the very first book. Ken is just one of those heroes that you immediately fall in love with! He’s strong, sexy, sweet, caring, in summary, he’s absolutely perfect! I’ve loved his relationship with his cousin Miranda, and it’s obvious there is an attraction between him and Evie. Evie is just this amazing, strong, gorgeous, stubborn, and confident woman on the outside and completely broken on the inside. She’s a heroine that you just long to see finally find happiness. I loved watching her relationship develop between her siblings, and seeing her learn to trust and to care for Ken. Her story and the relationship between Kenden was an emotional one that takes the readers through a rollercoaster of emotions. She was such a fascinating, complicated woman and it was good to see her finally accept the love of those around her. I absolutely loved Ken and Evie’s epilogue, it was perfect for them and I hope to catch up with them in later books…
I absolutely loved this book and am struggling to let this series go. I know Ms. Hefner promised to come back to it at a later date, and I for one can’t wait! This has been a fascinating series full of wonderful characters and storylines that shows how truly talented this author is. As I said earlier, Ms. Hefner had a few surprises for us in this book! She didn’t just give us Ken and Evie’s love story and a fight to end all fights, she also gave us two other love stories of secondary characters, that I’m happy to see finally get their HEA’s. Plus a shocking didn’t see that coming cliffhanger, that just has to be read first hand. 😲 You definitely don’t want to miss that! 😉 I highly recommend this book and the entire series and can’t wait to return again to Etherya’s Earth! Well done Ms. Hefner & please don’t keep us waiting too long… 🙂

Rebecca Hefner grew up in Western NC and now calls the Hudson River of NYC home. In her youth she would sneak into her mother’s bedroom and raid the bookshelf, falling in love with the stories of Judith McNaught, Sandra Brown and Nora Roberts. Years later that love of a good romance, with lots of great characters and conflicts, has extended to her other favorite authors such as JR Ward and Lisa Kleypas. Also a huge Game of Thrones and Star Wars fan, she loves an epic fantasy and a surprise twist (Luke, he IS your father). One day, over a decade ago, she began writing her own stories and recently mustered the courage to leave her corporate medical device sales job and become a full-time author.
