Ascension by Sable Grace
Kyana is half Vampyre, half Lychen ... and the last of her kind. Determined, dangerous, and damned, she has no love for the mortals who have imprisoned and misused her. But when the Order of Ancients entrusts her with a mission - to find the key that will send the Dark Breed back into Hell for eternity - Kyana has no choice but to accept.
She is furious to learn her assignment comes with an escort ... Ryker, a demigod and fierce warrior who long ago found a way under her skin and stayed there. In a shaky alliance, they discover an ancient cult with dangerous motives and a god who seeks to destroy all others. And as Kyana begins to feel the heat that threatens to bind her to Ryker, she knows she has to resist. For it could only mean the undoing of them both ...

I didn't realise when I read the info on this book that it was going to be a story about Greek gods ... with a nice wee twist. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm just saying! It's the 2nd book about Greek gods with a modern twist that I've read lately. They've both made me remember my interest in Greek mythology and I feel I must act on that interest somehow. Any clues how would be helpful!
Back to the book though ... Ascension was fairly awesome! Kyana is kick ass with a background to make her angry and pissed at everyone, just what I like in a heroine. The story and the characters are really well written. It was quick paced and easy to get lost in.
I loved it and can't wait to read more. There must be more judging by the ending!
