Thanos (Masters Among Monsters #3) ~ Ella Frank

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.


I was totally looking forward to Thanos. I needed to know what his deal was. Why his relationship with his Ancient was the way it was and how Paris fit in to the scheme of things. Ella did not disappoint!

I really enjoyed that all the characters were in each of the books of the series. As of late, a lot of other authors have completed a series, but each book is based on one character. I liked this change where the series included a glimpse in to all the characters lives. Each character was written superbly and you couldn't help but love them and want more. 

The blood, violence, sex and drama completely sucked (no pun intended) me in. The vampires, the paranormal culture with a peak at the past and the love that grew between all of them was expertly written. There were times I needed a cold shower and then other times where I just wanted to comfort them. 

Thanos's past and the choices (if you call them that) he had to make broke my heart and made me angry. Yet the whole time I could feel Eton's love for him. I knew as time went on that Thanos did have a love for Eton, but also couldn't ignore his attraction to Paris. What a tangled web we weave. 

The only negative I could say is that I wanted more. I wanted more of Thanos, Eton and Paris, of Isadora, Diomedes and Elias and Leo, Alasdair and Vasillios. I wanted more of that vampire and greek culture because it was written so well. The biting, the sexual abandon, the history and the love...I just wanted more.
