Locate your Classical Dictionary from the back of your bookshelf for this one: it's another book with Greek gods and other immortals as heroes. It's not the first book I've read recently taking classical heroes and bringing them to the modern world; it's not particularly original in the overall story, but it is okay to read.

Theron is the leader of the Argonauts, classical heroes who live long lives in order to save humans (what else!). Although they live in a different dimension from humans, they sometimes come across to the human world to see what's going on. When club waitress Casey spots Theron, she finds him interesting. When she sees him later in the car park being attacked, she rescues him, takes him home and tends his wounds. What Casey doesn't realize is that she herself is special; once Theron realizes it, her life may be in danger. But Theron, sworn to protect his king and princess, may find his duty difficult to carry out when it involves Casey. She will have to come to terms with her own destiny and the fact that she may have to sacrifice herself for the good of many.

This isn't a bad book with quite a lot going on and good pacing. I wasn't entirely convinced by the classical setting - it's rather shoehorned into an altered world to fit the author's needs. Several other Argonauts listed undoubtedly will have their own books in future. Whether I will want to read them isn't yet clear, but this isn't a bad start to a series.
