MYSTIC ZODIAC SERIES
High atop Mount Olympus, the ancient Gods and Goddesses of the past still reside, hidden from mortal view.
They have always been there.
Will always be there.
They dabble in the lives of humans and lesser immortals, known as Mystics.
Out of boredom.
Or simply because they can.
They thrive on watching others squirm under their thumbs. Laughing and celebrating each other, while plotting a bigger and better scheme.
This is where our story begins...
Fallen Angel Thane has been exiled to the realm of humans and Mystics for almost fifty years after what he considers a slight misunderstanding, too bad Zeus didn't agree. After the blush of exile wears off, Thane dedicates his new life to helping those in need, all in the hope of impressing the imposing God.
A visit from his Watcher with one more task sets Thane up to finally get what he’s dreamed about for decades…his rightful place back on Olympus with his brothers. All he needs to do is keep one woman from “doing something stupid." He determined to ignore his body responding for the first time in almost fifty years in order to go home.
Amara Hope is desperate to bring her brother home, traveling into the heart of Viral City day after day putting her life at risk. As her last living relative, he's all she has left. When a hunky good samaritan grudgingly offers help, she's all too willing to accept. Once they get her brother home and begin spending more time together, the more Amara knows he's the one for her.
What the two don't know is that the Gods are playing games with their lives, and they're on a collision course with love.
NOTE: Mystic Zodiac is a 12 book series. It is NOT a serial. Each book ends in a happily ever after for the main couple. However, the prologue and epilogue of each story follows the Gods that kick off the series, Eros and Chlotho (aka Chloe). At the end of the series the bet between the two will come to a conclusion.

WOW! I just read this and have to say thank you to Brandy Walker. My normal reading is shifters.
This story kept me turning the pages even when I needed to go to bed. A great read and so worth it. Recommend this.
Amazing start to a new series!
Thane is the first book in the Mystic Zodiac series. The series starts with a bet between Eros, the God of love & desire, and Chloe (Chlotho), the Fate of birth, in which he challenges her to make a love match per month for a year, the first of them being Thane and Amara.
Let me start by saying that I had very high expectations for this story due to my love for Greek mythology and they were exceeded by miles!
Something that threw me off in the beginning (in a good way) was how selfish Thane was. It was very refreshing to see a protagonist that isn’t so perfect and noble from the start. Thane was cast out of Olympus due to his bedding of a woman that belonged to Zeus and all his action for his 50 years on Earth were meant to redeem him in the eyes of the Gods so he would be allowed back home.
By meeting Amara and helping here take care of her troubled brother, his selfish ways start to mend and they fall in love.
I thought the ending for Amara and Thane very satisfying and the story arc of Eros and Chloe left me wanting more, for sure!
A Perfect Escape During my Busy Weekend!
This is a series I am glad I found in the beginning. Brandy Walker’s Mystic Zodiac series is a 12 book novella series with one book coming out every month this year. (At least this is my understanding) Thane was the perfect escape during my busy weekend!
I am such a sucker for Greek Mythology. I began this obsession at a very young age and It still holds true today. Walker does a great job using the foundation of the Greek gods and goddesses to create great motivation for Thane’s story as well as the other Mystic Zodiac stories to come.
Thane and Amara’s story was well planned and well written. I really enjoyed that their story was not all rainbows and sunshine. Actually, it starts out quite dirty and not in the sexy way. The entire story flowed very well and was extremely pleasant to read. I never had to go back and reread any part of this book trying to decipher something or looking for a piece I thought I missed.
Thane contained a HEA (Happily Ever After) and that always leaves me with a nice smile at the end. This is book I am truly happy I picked up!
