Mask of the Swan (The Fearless Series) by Terry Maggert [SBM Review]

Mask of the Swan

Killing immortals is easy. Becoming one is hard.
When three lovers (Ring, Waleska, and Risa) take a vacation after losing a fight with an elegant monster named Elizabeth, their time for healing is cut short by a new threat, and this time, innocent blood will spill.
Reaching for the crown of Hell, Elizabeth gathers Archangels around her to fuel her power-mad ascent-but she has powerful enemies who will fight her every step of the way, including Delphine, the 2400 year old succubus hooker who knows that inside her beautiful body rests a very human soul. Joined by an honorable priest who finds himself in the middle of a war he never knew existed, and a demigod and his partner, the stage is set for another round in the battle to determine how much of Ring, Waleska, and Risa is still human, how tough their immortal side can be-and how far they are willing to go to protect the people they love from the reaches of a creature who would burn their world to ashes.

The trio is recovering from their near fatal fight with Elizabeth. Delphine is back asking for an alliance against her mother, Elizabeth. The trio has to learn to trust her at least to a point, but will she betray them again? I enjoyed the way Maggert wrote this. We get to see what our trio is doing while we also get a look at what Elizabeth is up to while both sides prepare to change forever. We learn a lot more about Delphine's past as well as Elizabeth's through letters sent from mother to child. I just loved all the mythology and theology in this one. Ring has new allies! A couple demi-gods and one hot priest! I can't wait to read the next book! I am hoping to see more of the new allies and anxious to find out where Maggert takes us next.
