Genre: Paranormal Romance
Long ago, a nymph fell in love with a mere mortal destined to be a legendary hero. Until the gods saw fit to tear them apart and tamper with fate.
Everyone has heard the story of Daphne and Apollo, of her transformation into a laurel tree to escape his obsession. If only it were so simple. Held prisoner for thousands of years, Daphne is close to death until a last minute rescuer smuggles her out of Olympus and to Melancton, the satyr she loves.
Melancton has always preferred to be on his own, keeping to the shadows and maintaining a stoic appearance. Only Daphne can be the light to his darkness, and now that she’s returned, the fear of losing her again shakes him. With grave danger lurking on the horizon, Melancton and the satyrs of The Aegean Inn prepare for battle, but the odds are stacked against them.
Meanwhile, Apollo enlists the aid of Dionysus in his determination to reclaim Daphne and punish those responsible for her disappearance. Is it possible to survive the fury of the gods?
Review: Despite not having read book one and two, I could follow along remarkably well. The book focuses on the myth of Daphne and Apollo, and "Satyr from the Shadows" builds on that story and expands it, making it a lot more interesting, with the addition of Melancton, a satyr. This is the first book I've read that focuses on a satyr, and it's great. I definitely want to read more books featuring satyrs - I'll probably go through a satyr phase now, like I went through a selkie phase last year, LOL. The other gods appear too, and there's a ton of characters. An entertaining book!
