    It's been a couple of years since the last book in the Guardians of Hades series was released so while I was excited to dive back into this world I did worry that I might get confused and not remember enough about the previous stories.

Luckily Felicity Heaton did a great job of bringing me back up to speed and within a few pages I was just happy to be back with these characters. Marek is luckier than some of his brothers when it comes to his abilities and they cause less problems for him in the human realm but he has spent hundreds of years caught up on a previous betrayal and spends his time sneaking around hunting vampires when his brothers' backs are turned. It is during one of these attacks that he first meets Caterina who is also hunting vampires but for very different reasons to Marek. Caterina may be human but she's aware of the supernatural so although she doesn't immediately recognise Marek for what he is she does understand that he's not a normal human. The two bond pretty quickly over their mutual dislike of the vampires but Caterina's life takes a very difficult turn when she is targeted by Marek's enemies. I don't want to say too much about what happens to Caterina but it was definitely shocking and there were some really interesting developments in the ongoing story arc throughout this instalment of the series. As much as I enjoyed the romance between Marek and Caterina I also loved getting to find out more about Calistos and about all of the brothers' backgrounds. Their enemies are building up to something big and I think the action is only going to get more intense in the next couple of books.

Safety: No cheating, no other people after meeting, no separation H not a manwhore, heroine not a virgin H loved another woman in the past that betrayed him which causes him to distrust the heroine for a majority of the book. Not my favorite trope, but the heroine was a fighter. Theres one scene that irked me, and its where the H is being tricked by a deamon illusionist pretending to be his ex that betrayed him. He's already met and knows he has a connection with the heroine at this point, so I thought it was annoying he still acted so hung up on the ex when he thought she was near.

    Marek is the fourth book in the Guardians of Hades series by Felicity Heaton. I think it is a good idea to read the other books first so that you fully understand the characters and what they have already been up to until this instalment. The blurb of this book is more than enough to explain what happens in Marek's story. All that is needed for this review is my personal opinion of it, and that opinion is that the story is a real page-turner!

I have read many of this author's books and although she is a favourite of mine, occasionally I can't give a 5-star review. I am happy to say that this book more than earns that rating. The characters despite being gods of the underworld are so loveable. The way they protect their women is so special. They even make sure that their brothers don't get too close to their women or all hell can break loose. Those scenes made for some fun moments. As well as romance and some very steamy passionate scenes, the stories are exciting with suspense, danger and some doublecrossing as well. There is never a dull moment and I couldn't read the book quickly enough to find out how it could possibly have a happy ending. At times it seemed impossible but the author managed it beautifully and believably. I am very happy to recommend this book.

    Marek has been living with his six brothers protecting the gates to the Underworld. Daemons are determined to gain access and create havoc and they spend their time hunting vampires as well. On one of his hunts though, Marek ends up finding Caterina who peaks his interest.

A lot of this style books you don't see that vulnerability in the male characters as they ooze confidence and alpha male all over the place, there is a hidden depth to this author's character which I appreciate. I liked Caterina a lot, she was a perfect match to Marek. Another great read in this series.

    4.25 stars--MAREK is the fourth instalment in Felicity Heaton’s contemporary, adult GUARDIANS OF HADES erotic, paranormal/fantasy romance series very loosely based in Greek mythology, focusing on seven brothers- the sons of Hades and Persephone -sent to Earth to guard the gates to the Underworld.

This is Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Earth Marek, and vampire hunter / human Caterina’s story line. MAREK can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order as the brothers struggle against an unknown enemy to keep the human world and the Underworld from colliding. NOTE: The Guardians of Hades series is Felicity Heaton’s interpretation of, and does not follow, the actual Greek mythological family tree or events. Told from several third person perspectives including Marek and Caterina MAREK follows the building relationship between Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Earth Marek, and vampire hunter / human Caterina. Approximately ten years earlier Caterina’s brother Guillem was attacked, and Caterina is desperate to find a cure to prevent her brother from becoming a vampire but ten years of hunting and killing vampires, and her brother remains a shell of his former self, slowly succumbing to whatever disease is slowly eating away at his body. Caterina isn’t the only hunter in Barcelona destroying the hundreds of nests of vampires in her city, and in this Caterina struggles with her attraction to the warrior who may or may not be human himself. Enter Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Earth Marek, the man/the god with whom Caterina will fall in love but all does not go well for our story line couple when Caterina is targeted, and finds herself doing the bidding of someone who promises to fix what ails her dying brother, a bidding that will cost Caterina her humanity. What ensues is the slow building relationship between Caterina and Marek, and the potential fall-out as Caterina becomes the puppet of a powerful enemy, threatening to destroy Marek to take control of the Gates to the Underworld. Marek despises the vampire with every fibre of his being having been betrayed by one in his past. Alone in his quest to take down the vampires, Marek battles between head and heart when he discovers another ‘warrior’ as desperate as he to kill the vampires that broke his heart but protecting the Gates to the Underworld comes at a cost, as Marek and his brothers find themselves in a constant battle with the numerous daemons that are constantly coming through the portals of H*ll. Caterina is determined to destroy every vampire in existence believing one of the vampires is her brother’s maker but the more vampires Caterina kills, her brother becomes weaker with no sign of recovery. Meeting Marek, a man who claims not to be human, finds Caterina working together in an effort to rid the city of her brother’s ‘killer’ but working together means their mutual attraction grows with every encounter. The relationship between Caterina and Marek is slow to build. Marek is at the command of his father, as well as the summons of the gate he continues to guard but someone or something is trying to gain access to the Underworld, using both Caterina and Marek in their endeavour, placing Caterina in the direct line of fire when Marek’s enemies forces Caterina to turn on the man with whom she is falling in love. The $ex scenes are passionate and intimate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. Once again, all of Marek’s brothers including Ares and his mate Megan (ARES #1), Valen and his mate Eva (VALEN #2), Esher and Aiko (ESHER #30) Daimon, eldest brother Keras, , and baby brother Calistos play secondary and supporting roles; their mother Persephone, and their father Hades, as well as a number of daemons, shape-shifters, and wraiths. We are introduced to Caterina’s brother Guillem, who finally succumbs to the powers slowly taking over his body. MAREK is an action packed, ensemble story line wherein the reader is privileged to the internal dialogue, introspection and thoughts of the leading characters. Marek is compelled to kill the vampires he blames for betrayal; Caterina is hoping to cure the brother she so desperately loves. The premise is engaging, energetic and captivating; the characters are colorful, dynamic and spirited; the romance is seductive and steamy. Copy supplied for review www.thereadingcafe.com

This series is just getting better....and it's all kicking off in Marek's book!!I Felicity Heaton definitely knows how to weave magic through her stories that keep you hooked on the characters, the story arc and the worlds she builds. I could barely put my kindle down while reading as I needed to know what was coming next - but the need for food and to deal with the family found me having to pause occasionally...... The lead couple in book four meet while they're both out hunting a mutual prey they have, but for very different reasons. Marek knows from the get go that there's something about Caterina, in the way she makes him feel and react. She's aware that he's not a mortal but initially has no idea exactly what he is.... The enemy that has been working against the brothers since Ares' book will use any advantage to get what they want, as we know from previously, so it stands to reason that Caterina was likely gonna be a target...... but it appears they've upped their game and are more nefarious than ever!! As the brothers adversaries seem to grow in audacity and the level of the beings involved in the uprising starts to become a little more apparent, things are not all lost for the siblings as the strength and numbers of their own group is also growing. Betrayal, treachery, heartbreak and deceit all feature heavily in this instalment. The action, mystery and suspense are ramped up and the story is gaining even more momentum as the series continues. Some clues as to what has occurred in the past of at least one of the brothers seems (to me) to be thrown into the mix and I'm looking forward to finding out if I'm any where near the mark. I'm itching to find out what Calistos' story is, we know a little about him as with each book that passes Felicity feeds us teeny bits more about the brothers we've still to read about and the youngest of the Guardians story intrigues me! The Guardians of Hades series is a must read IMHO if you are a PNR fan. Marek is a great addition and gets a definite 5* from me!!! * * * * I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review - but have also pre ordered my own kindle copy

    Man, Hades's boys have it rough. Not only were they banished from the Underworld, they have to watch their mouths, guard the gates to the Underworld, and deal with everything thrown at them.

    Marek is the fourth book in the Guardians of Hades series and I really couldn't wait for the researcher's story! He has been hinted at in the previous books but, of course, you don't find out much until he gets his own story. Marek has his past that he is "dealing" with. Well, he's not, not really, but it makes him feel better. Caterina goes out hunting vampires every night because she thinks if she kills his sire, her brother will return to 'normal'. When these two meet, sparks fly... literally! Marek is the fourth book in the Guardians of Hades series and I really couldn't wait for the researcher's story!

When these two meet, sparks fly... literally! Poor Marek! And poor Caterina!! Both of them were hurting before they found each other but even then it didn't go smoothly. Now, of course, I know it never does but these two really had it bad. How about turning into something the man you're falling for hates and literally fights every day? Yeah, not easy. However, in true Felicity Heaton style, they not only managed to overcome these obstacles but also found their HEA along the way. Of course, they also found murder, more mystery, betrayal, and heartbreak but it's all for a good cause! 😉 This is such a great series and Marek is a fantastic addition to it. A thoroughly enjoyable story from start to finish, with cameos from the other brothers, and plenty of steam between our two main characters. Absolutely brilliant and I can definitely recommend it. Now, bring on the next! * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

    As Miss Felicity continues the "Guardians Of Hades" series, we're told the story of Marek. And it's delicious! Adventurous storyline and plot, previous characters help the story along, new and challenging characters, it's simply badass and sexy! If you love Greek mythology with thrilling twists and turns, you'll love this story, this series! Nothing short of amazing!

    Marek is the fourth book in the Guardians of Hades series. I loved it! Marek is one of six son's of Hades. He is an intriguing character, and I liked him a lot. When he was first introduced in the series, I thought Marek was the more studious brother since he enjoyed researching. However, he is also a fierce warrior. I found it a pleasure to get to see into his life. There is a darkness within Marek that was not immediately obvious. It's this darkness that leads him to crossing paths with Caterin Marek is the fourth book in the Guardians of Hades series. I loved it! Marek is one of six son's of Hades. He is an intriguing character, and I liked him a lot. When he was first introduced in the series, I thought Marek was the more studious brother since he enjoyed researching. However, he is also a fierce warrior. I found it a pleasure to get to see into his life. There is a darkness within Marek that was not immediately obvious. It's this darkness that leads him to crossing paths with Caterina. Caterina is a woman on a mission. I liked her spunky-ness and determination to save her brother. Family is important to her since it's just her and her brother. When a stranger helps her fight vampires, she is intrigued by him. Unfortunately, she gets pulled into the tug-of-war between Marek's family and their enemy, and her life will never return to normal. It's been a year since the last Guardians of Hades book, and I've been eagerly awaiting Marek's story. I started to read and was pulled back into the fantastic world built by the author. It was a pleasure meeting the other brothers and their new loves once more. Hades and Persephone also make an appearance; they are typical parents - overprotective and loving. Karas and Calistos are the only two brothers who haven't had their stories told yet. However, the author made mention of Calistos's twin, Calindria, who had died several years before. It made me wonder if she could still potentially be alive somewhere when someone close to her briefly made an appearance, however, back to the review. The brothers still have a lot to do to avoid the prediction the Morai made about the human world and Underworld's impending collision. I was glad, however, when a specific character met their fate, but now wonder if Caterina's brother will play a more prominent role at some point. There are fast-paced fight scenes, which are this author's forte. She can bring them to life, so I always enjoy those, and the romance between Marek and Caterina scorched the pages even though there weren't as many opportunities for togetherness. I am now looking forward to reading Calistos's story soon. Felicity Heaton has written another fast-paced, sexy paranormal romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. I love her fast-paced writing style, which flows effortlessly from scene to scene. She is on top of my favourite author's list. Each book of this series could be read as a stand-alone, as this one does not end in a cliffhanger, though I would recommend reading them in order. I do not recommend this book to younger readers due to the extremely HOT and explicit sexual scenes. However, I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love sexy paranormal romances full of gods and daemons. - Lynn Worton

    Yes to Marek Wow.. I have to admit that I went back to book one Ares a few weeks before Marek was released so I could get a refresher on the Guardians of Hades and I am glad I did. Heaton's Marek will begin were Esher ended, so I would say this is a series that needs to be read in order. Marek is packed with all the goodies that I feel make up a 5 Star Paranormal story, angst, suspense, love, humor, heartbreak , adventure and sexy time between the sheets . Marek is the one of the middle children Yes to Marek Wow..

Heaton's Marek will begin were Esher ended, so I would say this is a series that needs to be read in order. Marek is packed with all the goodies that I feel make up a 5 Star Paranormal story, angst, suspense, love, humor, heartbreak , adventure and sexy time between the sheets . Marek is the one of the middle children of Hades and the beautiful Persephone. Each sibling has special powers some they share, a few that is all their own. The God that they are either named after or favor has blessed each sibling with a birthmark. Marek is an Earth Element who has been sent along with his six brothers to protect the mortal world and the Underworld from merging together. The Guardians are keepers of the gates that lead to the Underworld. Nasty creatures called daemons are trying to get back to the Underworld and they have been scheming with other enemies of Hades. Marek also has a thing for destroying all Vampires in the mortal world. While he seeks a nest of Vamps he will partner up with a mortal named Caterina. She is trying to save her brother. Chemistry from these two characters is explosive from beginning to end. Marek and his brothers have a ruthless group made up of daemons, incubus, a.wrath, and a shapeshifter and something else after them, this group is trying to take over both the Mortal world and Underworld. This group of evil will also do anything to the people the brothers care for. Can the Guardians defeat the ones trying to destroy everything. Heaton gives us more answers, some surprises but more questions. Heaton took me on a magical ride with these characters based on Greek Mythology and a mystical world she has created. This series and story is another hit for Heaton. Absolutely loved the Guardians of Hades. I can't wait for Keras story but Calistos is my second favorite character and he is up next. Happy Reading!!

Caterina is looking for a cure for her beloved brother. Bitten by a vampire, he’s slowly dying, he hasn’t got much longer, so if she can find his “sire”, then Caterina hopes he will become human again. Looking for vampire nests in Barcelona she hopes to come across the vampire and kill it, before it kills her brother!! Coming across Caterina was a surprise, and before he knows what’s hit him, he has a partner to back him up on the hunt. But what will he do when he finds out her secret? Will he help or will he end her brother’s life? Caterina wasn’t expecting to find out that not only do vampires exist, but other monsters and gods roam this earth too. Can she trust Marek with her brothers secret, or will she walk away to protect him? This book was a total surprise, I wasn’t sure of Marek’s background story. We know something dark happens in his past, but being betrayed by a vampire lover, wasn’t one of them. And it has to be a big betrayal as he’s bent on taking them all out, and he’s not suppose to!! (Vampires are permitted to go to and from the underworld) He’s also in the middle of his brother’s “love life” and he hates that his brother Keras doesn’t speak to him unless he has to! (The story between Keras and the goddess of war looks to be a long standing one, and will I’m sure the story will be a good one) Have to admit I was a little taken aback with how quick the main characters fell for each other (considering how in love he was previously!) but what he feels for Caterina is completely different from what he felt with Airlea. Liked how the storyline is different from the rest (in fact all the stories are different) It’s great that we get a little more information with each story that’s told. The ongoing war with the unseen forces that want control of both the underworld and this one. And the surprises just kept coming in this one..... As all the books in this series, it’s really well written, fast paced, loaded with fight scenes and twists. We interact with all the brothers and the women in their lives. We laugh along with the funny moments. And I wanted to shake them too!! And a few moments had me reaching for the tissues!! The series is coming to an end soon 😒and that’s sad! But I’m looking forward to reading the next brother. It’s going to be epic!

If you aren't familiar with the series it's about six brothers who are Hades' children, they have been banished from their home to keep the mortal realm from combining with the Underworld by protecting the gates that lead there from daemons. So far we have had Ares, Valen, and Esher's stories, book four is for Marek though we have met all the brothers along the way. You get a few different POVs in this book but mostly they are of Marek and Caterina, but there is one thrown in from Calistos who will be the male lead in book five which is due out at the end of July. I really like Caterina, she is a mere mortal but is fiercely protective of her brother who has been turned into a vampire. Urging him not to feel from another human, she has been tracking the vampires where she lives in hopes she can find the one who turned him and end their existence and make her brother human again. When it turns out she and Marek are tracking the same group of vampires, Marek is furious wanting to claim his kill but also protect the fiery-tempered human. Marek and Caterina definitely start their relationship off on a rocky start, which later becomes full of lust that they inevitably give in to. I love the fact this book wasn't insta-love as that one thing that really bugs me. You can see there is a connection between the two but as mentioned it starts off as lust rather than love. This is another great read by author Felicity Heaton, and while I would recommend you read these books in order they can of course be read individually. It's a rollercoaster ride from start to finish, and one I was really looking forward to coming out and I wasn't disappointed. Now bring on July so I can read more about Hades' youngest son, Calistos.

Caterina slays vampires in hopes of saving her brother. When Caterina and Marek cross paths while killing some vampires, they decide to join forces, but they are going to find that vampires are the least of their issues. Sexy, passionate connection between Caterina and Marek. With some really sweet moments too. I liked how Caterina kicked butt, but wish that didn’t sort of fade as the story went on; she lets her desperation to save her brother cloud her judgment, so she ends up making some moronic decisions. Still like her enough though. Loved all the action with fighting the vampires, daemons, etc, and the whole sons of Hades thing is lots of fun. I’d recommend starting this series from the beginning because there will be spoilers for past books. It was great how all the brothers worked together; them having different powers is awesome. Excited to read the rest of their stories; especially Keras’ story. The author did a great job of creating an interesting world and characters for this series; I was entertained the whole read, this is a full and compelling story.

    Marek and Caterina make an interesting couple. Both are driven by revenge, protecting loved ones and outstanding battle skills. Their chance meeting starts an exciting fast paced story where revenge is the main theme. Marek hates two thing Daemons and Vampires. This fact is pivotal to the whole story line. He struggles with his hatred and love surrounding this area. How does one put aside hatred that is centuries old?

How does one put aside hatred that is centuries old? The author manipulated this area in a manner that showed that love is not blind. It's about making choices and living with them. Caterina has too much love. She loves very deep and will do anything to protect those she loves. Even go to her death if necessary. What I like about her is how intelligent she is and how quickly she makes a decision. Also, it helps that she is a kick ass fighter and a strong woman. I appreciate the authors ability keep Caterina's character real and not sappy. This story has an exciting character list with the Illusionist from the past book, a Wraith, Vampires and Daemon's. Oh, wait did I mention Gods, Demi Gods and Goddesses. All Marek's brothers are present in this book with their very distinct individual personalities which makes for a wild time when they are all together. The author Felicity Heaton's development of these characters is superb causing this reader to pay close attention to what she was reading earning this book 5 STAR's.

    I was given a preview copy of this book. I was very excited to receive it as I really enjoyed the last three books in this series and was not disappointed. Marek is another brooding brother with a compulsion/addiction to kill vampires, and a strong hatred of Daemons. On one of his vampire nests hunts he discovers someone had got there before him. Caterina is a human who also has a desperate need to fight and kill vampires. But her reason is that by doing so she might hopefully kill some kind of hea I was given a preview copy of this book.

Caterina is a human who also has a desperate need to fight and kill vampires. But her reason is that by doing so she might hopefully kill some kind of head vampire who had turned her brother into a vampire, which would then hopefully cure him and turn him back to human. Marek and Caterina have instant chemistry and agree to meet up again for a vampire hunt. It's great to see a strong female lead character, that is as tough as the boys. It was also lovely to revisit with the other brothers of Marek and to see how them and their female partners were. The brother Calistos and how he is still unable to recover from the death of his twin sister Calindria features often. I hope that Ms Heaton is hinting that Calindria will be brought back and featured in her own book in the future. This is another book that you can just not put down. It is very well written, fast paced with lots happening. I can’t wait for the next one in the series!

    This is the fourth book in the Guardians of Hades series. About a group of brothers that are sent to Earth to guard the Gates to the Hell Realm. This book about Marek seems to pick right up from the previous book about Esher, so it is a continuation from the previous book that will keep you engaged from start to finish. So, in my opinion it is best to read these books in order to fully understand the "who, what, where, when, why, how come and what ifs" of these stories. I love this series.

So, in my opinion it is best to read these books in order to fully understand the "who, what, where, when, why, how come and what ifs" of these stories. I love this series. It has characters from Greek mythology, mystery, and romance. Truthfully, I enjoyed the books prior to this one about Marek a lot better. Marek’s vengeance against the Vampires seemed almost like an after thought just to have a villain to fight other than the main ones that they are still learning about, to be able to protect the gates. And Marek’s and Caterina’s love story and HEA seemed a little rushed to me. Do not get me wrong I still loved the book, but it was more for the continuance of the storyline itself and finding out more about the people that are out to harm them. I still would and will recommend this book and the entire series to all my friends. And I can not wait to read the rest of the brothers’ stories.

    It’s been a bit of a wait since the last Guardians of Hades book, but the wait was definitely worth it. I enjoyed every bit of this. It’s Marek’s turn. Technically these books are all stand-alones, but there’s a ongoing story arc that continues throughout the books, so it definitely helps to read them all in order.

Plus a meaty plot that moves along at a great pace and makes you want to keep reading. I always enjoy Felicity Heaton’s books and this was definitely no exception. Caterina and Marek were both strong, but multi-faceted with vulnerable moments as well. They went together perfectly. I loved all the secondary characters, especially all the brothers. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable read. If you like PNR then you’ll definitely enjoy this. I can’t wait for the next book. Recommended.

    Overcoming anger and betrayal I'm loving this series so much! Felicity is an amazing world builder and the characters she creates are complex and loveable. Marek is driven by anger and betrayal, the betrayal happened hundreds of years ago but something inside him broke the day he was betrayed by the woman he loved. Now, he is committed to eradicating her entire species, vampires. This hobby of his is something he has kept from his brothers. It doesn't interfere with him guarding the gate in Spain Overcoming anger and betrayal I'm loving this series so much!

It doesn't interfere with him guarding the gate in Spain and they would be furious if they knew. It was on a hunt that he met Caterina, a beautiful woman and a vampire hunter. Caterina has a personal reason to hate vampires, she needs to save her brother. She has known for a while that humans aren't the only species on Earth but it isn't until meeting Marek that the extent of it. Caught up in a war not of their making, Marek and Caterina fight for their chance to be together.
