Reviewed by Laura Carter for Readers' Favorite

You may have heard the saying that ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ but it is even worse when the women in question happen to be powerful demi-gods. When close friends Pax and Amara both have their hearts broken, they decide that the best way to get over their pain is revenge. Only the combined power of the two women is enough to get the revenge they desire, but utilising that much power can be dangerous. When they attract the attention of beings even more powerful than themselves, they may need help from the very people who hurt them in the first place.

"Paramount" is very unique; never before have I read a book with a similar plot and feel to it. The story kept me hooked throughout until I reached the end. My only disappointment with the book was that it ended; I wanted to keep on reading it forever. The characters are engaging and the chemistry between them all is sexy and tense but very believable. Pax is the type of female protagonist that I love - smart, strong and very badass. If you like your romances to have lots of passion and action then you will love "Paramount". Nadia Screiva is an excellent author who writes great romances that are one of a kind and very different from anything else available. I am eagerly awaiting to the sequel to "Paramount" as the ending is quite sudden and I can’t wait to find out what happens next to Pax and Amara.
