    I have enjoyed Martinez s tale of Greek gods in this Brandywine Investigations series, and was excited when I found out that Dionysus finally got his own story Dio was well, wild I mean, he was the god of wine and orgies So I was curious about the one who would be able to capture Dio s heart.And I must applaud Martinez once again since she seems able to bring out interesting and unique relationship because guess who Leander is He s a minotaur yep, THE minotaur The bull that is p I have enjoyed Martinez s tale of Greek gods in this Brandywine Investigations series, and was excited when I found out that Dionysus finally got his own story Dio was well, wild I mean, he was the god of wine and orgies So I was curious about the one who would be able to capture Dio s heart.And I must applaud Martinez once again since she seems able to bring out interesting and unique relationship because guess who Leander is He s a minotaur yep, THE minotaur The bull that is part of the Greek myth of Theseus and the Labyrinth gleeful But there was nothing assertive about Leander at all In fact, he is a reticent being he is pretty much living in the quiet peaceful Eternal Library, with his books and his red panda assistants lovingly named as characters from Austen s books.Yes, people the Wild God of Orgies and Reticent Virgin Bull Who knew They actually worked I did have trouble to get immersed into the story in the beginning Probably because Dio s thoughts felt too scattered for me to follow It improved when Leander finally made his appearance though Leander was such a darling It just made sense and I thought the relationship was adorable.There was a slight mystery because one of the secondary characters was murdered at the library, but it wasn t the spotlight of this story I didn t mind though, maybe because it was what happened in book 1 and 3 anyway, despite the series name which include the word Investigations.All in all, I was happy with this one Now I wonder if Martinez will return to this world I will be happy reading about other Greek gods

    This newest story in the Brandywine Investigations series, with its Greek and other gods, supernatural beings from various myths and legends, and a range of problems set in today s world, is just as funny, engaging, and fascinating as the previous books I think it s one of my favorite series because of the mixture of laugh out loud humor, sarcasm, and moments that induce quiet chuckles as I follow the adventures of the old gods trying to deal with modern life Most of them have adapted rather This newest story in the Brandywine Investigations series, with its Greek and other gods, supernatural beings from various myths and legends, and a range of problems set in today s world, is just as funny, engaging, and fascinating as the previous books I think it s one of my favorite series because of the mixture of laugh out loud humor, sarcasm, and moments that induce quiet chuckles as I follow the adventures of the old gods trying to deal with modern life Most of them have adapted rather well to the twenty first century, but there are some that battle old issues And Books, Bulls, and Bacchanals has all the much loved elements it s yet another unusual pairing, both main characters are damaged souls as well as immortals, there s a mysterious murder, and to top it all off, it s all set in the Eternal Library Seriously A library in another dimension that safely preserves every scroll, papyrus, and book ever written Count me in Dionysus, who now goes by Dio, is not just the extroverted god of wine and orgies, but he also has anger management issues It all goes with the image of being a rather wild rock star what else but at the core of who he is, Dio is as vulnerable as anyone else Relationships don t work for him, because who can stand seeing him leading all those orgies on a regular basis, and even his family mostly despises him for being one of the many illegitimate sons of Zeus Dio adores his uncle Hades and his brother Hermes, and some of he younger gods have sided with him, but he is fundamentally alone When his latest destructive burst of anger, during which he loses consciousness, prompts his siblings to recommend a visit to the Eternal Library, Dio at first isn t sure he should go He is not exactly a reader But reason wins, and he makes his way there, only to have one of his friends murdered within hours He is determined to find out who did it, but it is not an easy task Leander, the Minotaur of legend, has finally found peace as the Eternal Library s librarian He likes his life to be ordered, and ever since he has retreated away from a world that cruelly mistreated him because of his animal like appearance, he has found a measure of tranquility All of that is brutally interrupted with a murder and all kinds of beings swarming the library in the effort of finding out who did it Leander is forced to come out of his isolation and work with Dio, and as much as this upsets him, he finds out there is something very attractive about the utterly charming god Trust is slow to build, but their connection is undeniable.If you like stories that play with well known elements of the mythological world and create something entirely new and unique, if you enjoy seemingly opposite characters figuring out that they have much in common, and if you re looking for a read that is suspenseful, yet emotional and romantic as well, then you will probably like this novel as much as I do The characters both old and new are fascinating, the murder mystery kept me interested, and Leander s and Dio s love story is very touching Thank you for another great installment, Angel I sure hope you re working on the next volume NOTE This book was provided by Amber Allure for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews

    3.5 3.0 Stars I love this series and enjoyed this book and I would ve rounded up to four stars EXCEPT for the reconciliation between HEA and the God of orgies I don t begrudge Dio his HEA I get it I do But my appreciation is at arms length, in a wow I admire Leander for being able to take comfort in washing off the jizz and other bodily fluids left by his lover s other lovers kind of way Sadly, I can t honestly relate I m simply not wired that way.Bottom line Liked it but.

  5. Alison Alison says:

    Ms Martinez did it again Another brilliant story in the wonderfully complex world of Brandywine Investigations A must read for anyone who loves crime, myth, hurt comfort, or romance I won t say too much because I don t want to ruin the story, but I will say that you see some of the previous characters as well as some new ones I couldn t help but fall in love with Dionysus and Leander, and can t wait for the next story.

    What is going on with this book cover.No Seriously What ARE YOU It s so appalling I m 100% impressed The questionable font with its questionable colours with a questionable photoshop job with this incomprehensible goth wannabe I COULD PULL OFF GOTH BETTER THAN YOU, BUDDY And i m this tiny ass straight laced asian chick PLEASE.But then again I don t have much of a moral high ground because there it is on my to read list Well played book cover.

    Another wonderful addition to the Brandywine Investigations series I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Dio and Leander They were sweet and complimented one another well and I loved the library setting It was also fun revisiting the characters from the previous books in the series.
