Beguiled by RaShelle WorkmanVenus has become immortal, just as she always wanted. In the process she hurt Zaren, lost Michael, and destroyed her family.

At least that’s what she believed.

Turns out Ramien, the god of her planets’ underworld, has her parents, and Michael.

To save them, Venus makes a deal. She must complete three trials. They seem impossible. They certainly won’t be easy. Worst of all, someone she loves won’t make it out alive.

More praise for the Immortal Essence series:

  • “I… felt like I was literally out of this world for a while.” Melissa Lemon, author of Cinder and Ella
  • “I love a book where the details fit together like pieces in a puzzle…” Rachel Morgan
  • “It’s superb!!! I loved the multiple points of view. I loved Venus. Michael was tough to like at first, but by the end – man, oh man, did I fall hard for him. Zaren is yummy! I want a guardian like him. Heck, I want a man like him! AND THOSE BOOTS. PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE CAN I HAVE A PAIR?” Jenna Heartsong


My Review of Beguiled by RaShelle Workman:

An Exciting Fast-Paced Read

I really enjoyed this newest work by Rashelle Workman. It was a very exciting and fast paced book. The storyline was quite original, and the world engaging and well-developed.

The worldbuilding is excellent and very well executed. The descriptions are clear and very vivid-I could really picture the scenes in my mind. The reader is plunged right into the middle of the tale, which I also like. The story is also action-packed, which kept me turning the pages well into the night.

The two main characters, Venus and Michael, are very well characterized. They came alive on the page for me. On the other hand, the main villain, Ramien is a bit run-of-the-mill as far as villains go. He was engaging nonetheless, and provided a good negative aspect to the story. I really appreciated the fact that, despite this being a YA novel, the characters had good and bad sides.

Overall, I highly recommend this book to all fans of the YA genre.  There is a lot here for adult fans of sci-fi/fantasy as well.
