Unearthing Gaia is a fast-paced work of paranormal romance by author T.L. Callahan, and the second book in the Paldimori Games series. After Lia’s passionate adventure during the deadly games of book one, Walking Chaos, we now return to the island of Sotiria with Dia King. Dia’s deliberately bright life holds dark secrets from her past that she’s determined to push away, but when she is claimed as a Chosen during the games, all of the pain, hurt and darkness of the past threatens to come tumbling to the fore again. Her ally, the gorgeous Jaxon Baines, turns out to be a powerful embodiment of love and sexual desire, challenging her in more ways than one as the games go on.

I found the entire concept of the Paldimori Games a really refreshing and enjoyable take on the standard paranormal romance genre. Mixing elements of The Hunger Games, Percy Jackson and traditional folklore with steamy romance, there’s a lot to get your head around in a short space of time, but author T.L. Callahan makes it well worth the effort. Dia and Jaxon make a feisty pairing with plenty of excitement and adult content for the romance fans, but I also found myself immersed in the mythical concepts, powers and light versus dark tale that’s brewing in the background of these racy stories. I’d be excited to see that world develop further alongside each romantic plot. Overall, I’d definitely recommend Unearthing Gaia to PNR fans who are looking for something bigger to sink their teeth into.
