Thousands of years ago, ten men swore their eternal allegiance as warriors to the gods.  The catch: they die and are brought back, but with no memories of previous lives, forcing them to learn fast or die trying.  This time around there are only eight warriors, and Ashor is their leader.  He's also the closest to the edge from years spent fighting.  When the gods command him to find their sacred healer, he already knows she won't want anything to do with them.  Ten years ago she appeared out of the blue, rescued him from torture, then disappeared again without a trace.  Good thing he's been tracking her, because when he finds Kira, she's being hunted by their enemies.  Stepping in to save her is the right thing to do, but she's none too happy with being dragged from her medical residency to help them fight their battles.  Too bad fate has already dictated her life, and she has no choice but to join if she doesn't want to be hunted down and killed by the enemy.  What fate can't control is her instant, primal attraction to Ashor.  Although he insists nothing can happen between them because she's their sacred healer, she's never been one for following the rules of beings she doubts exist. 

This was a great book.  It follows Ashor, a warrior to the gods who's on the verge of losing his soul and going to the dark side, as it were.  The only thing that can save him is his fated mate.  Problem is, although he's found his fated mate, she's completely hands-off, so declare the gods.  If he tries, they'll both be struck down.  The sheer unfairness of it all is played out very well, as both Ashor and Kira struggle to deny their growing attraction for each other while trying to stay one step ahead of the enemy and stay alive.  It was a great love story, with enough action, excitement, and romance to keep me turning the page.
