Release Day Blitz + Review : Thanos by Ella Frank

Thanos by Ella Frank
Series: Masters Among Monsters #3
Publication Date: January 26th, 2017
Genre: Paranormal Romance

descriptionCHARMED FOR LIFE?

Thanos Agapiou has always been a charmer. For over two millennia, the vampire had no problem acquiring whom and what he wanted with a flash of his handsome smile. He took for granted the boyish good looks he presumed he’d possess for the rest of eternity. 

How very wrong he was. 

A nearly fatal attack distorted his entire existence. With his appearance now matching the title many have bestowed their kind—monster—he hides away from the world and all of those who know him, including his Ancient, Eton.
Until one night when a stranger draws him out from the shadows. 


Ever since Paris Antoniou was thrust into a world of vampires, his reality has become stranger than the history and the myths he’s studied for the past decade.

When he learns the truth about his origins and the power he wields, his confusion and fear have him running for his life. What he doesn’t expect is to run into the arms of Thanos—a vampire who doesn’t intimidate him as much as he intrigues him.


As their worlds collide under extraordinary circumstances, an attraction neither can deny takes hold. But will that be enough to save Thanos from his demons, or will he condemn Paris to his fate? 

Destinies have been changed. Lines have been crossed. And, with tales of the vampire race coming to an end, who will make the ultimate sacrifice?
After all, in a world run by vampires and gods, only one can be the true Master among the Monsters.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was waiting for Thanos to be released for more than a year. And while I remember the basics, it's always a pity when you have to read books with so much distance. While the author makes a great effort in reminding us some of the events in the book, I think it's always best to experience it all at once I think it gives the story a better dimension and it gives the reader a way to really appreciate the books and its characters.

If you've read Alasdair and then Isadora, you most certainly know that there are multi points of view in all the books. Things were no different with Thanos and it gave the story all the sense it needs. As the story unfolds all parties take more and more space and all pieces fall into place. This book was not only about Thanos, Paris & Eton but it was also about the threat they are all facing since book 1.

Many questions were left unanswered after Isadora. To me the execution of Thanos was good but some part could have been deepen and some others could have been different.
I was intrigued by Thanos & Eton's bond ever since book 1. It seems so different from the one the others – Alasdair & Vasilios + Isadora & Diomêdês - have. Discovering why and how Thanos became a vampire, what he thinks of himself, why he acts the way he did was not what I thought and it was even more so tragic. If there was one vampire who deserves loves, it was probably Thanos and it becomes clearer while reading. Several times my heart broke for him. His life was not his own even as a vampire. In some ways, I wanted to know even more about him. The fact that events were taking place swallowed his own story and reduces it to too small pieces for my taste.

The more the story progress, the more it was charged with stress. I swear I thought I would not finish this book intact. I was holding my breath for the last 40% for sure! And then the ending came... What can I say? While I can understand this is maybe the best ending it could have been, I'm left with a huge hole. I'm not satisfied with it because it sweep away all the story IMO.
I'm a little confused and sad to end this series with such a bitter note...
