The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld #7) [Amun & Haidee] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

I can't believe this is the last book for 2013! YAY :) But I"m happy that this is the last taste of the year. I LOVED this book. It was built in a beautiful way. Even though we had the concept of a Warrior with "the enemy" or with someone they suppose to hate or mistrust, this book was somehow different because of the way both Amun and Haidee were presented and the way they learned who the other person are.

The Darkest Lie (Lords of the Underworld #6) [Gideon & Scarlet] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

OK, wow! after the previous book I was really hoping it's not a beginning of a downfall, also considering each book is longer then the previous. This book was pretty long! but I read it in less than three days. It was packed with a lot of action and sub plots. 

Main plot is Gideon, keeper of Lies finds he can't keep himself apart from Scarlet, Keeper of Nightmares, the one he wished (in the previous book) he could meet (even though he didn't know she actually existed..) and after she is captured by the Lords he is surprised that as it seems she is his long lost wife. The one he didn't know he had or couldn't even recall meeting.. Though looking at her the first time he is shocked that her eyes and lips had haunted him for years and so he tattooed them on his body, as well as the same tattoo she has on her lower back saying "To part is to die" surrounded by (feminine :P) flowers. Why can't he remember her? being with her? marring her? he is determined to question her until he receives his answers (prepare for a little bit of a mind fuck about that :)).

The Darkest Passion (Lords of the Underworld #5) [Aeron & Olivia] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is the 5th book in the Lords of the Underworld series this one telling the story of the tattooed Aeron keeper of Wrath and Olivia the [Fallen] Angel. 

Aeron has always been the guy who saves others, taking care of others, he was never one to show his feelings or his weaknesses. So when Olivia first "appears" meaning, when her presence is known to him he does his best to threaten her since her presence inflict pain upon Legion the she-demon who followed him when he was chained near hell and has become not only his comfort but he also considers her family, like the daughter he never had (and will never have).

Heart of Darkness: The Darkest Angel (Lords of the Underworld #4.5) [Lysander & Bianka] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is a short novella from the Lords of the Underworld series, unlike the previous 2 novellas in the series that had no real connection to the main story, this one features a character we met in the previous book of the series - The Darkest Whisper - Bianka who is Gwen's sister and like her also a Harpy. 

Lasyter is an Elite Angel which means he is exactly what you'd imagine an Elite Angel to be - Gorgeous but as boring and righteous as anyone can get - which is the exact opposite to the mischievous Bianka who is most dangerous when she gets bored. which she does when he abducts her and placed her on his cloud as a prisoner.

The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4) [Sabin & Gwen] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

Another great book in the Lords of the Underworld series. These books just grow on me as I continue to read. I love the setting and the Lords, I loved that the Hunters are the way they are sorta like the religious fanatic kind who fail to see their own faults and the fact they choose to believe whatever they are taught to believe. Galen did a beautiful job there. I wonder how he can manipulate them to thinking he's an angel and not possessed by a demon. Doesn't he have the tattoo like the rest of them?

The Darkest Prison (Lords of the Underworld #3.5) [Atlas & Nike] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is a side novella to the Lords of the Underworld Series. The Lords are mentioned very briefly but nothing specific. You shouldn't read this one if you haven't read the 3rd book since there are two spoilers  SPOILER
Aside from that I don't think it matters when you read this one. So don't feel bad postponing it for later if you're eager to keep reading the next one of Sabin.

The Darkest Pleasure (Lords of the Underworld #3) [Reyes & Danika] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

There is nothing like a stormy wintery weekend to catch up on my reading. Lately I haven't been reading as frequently as before. Things keep getting in my way. But as it seems the weather and this amazing series has brought me back to myself :)

Another great book in the series. I really enjoyed this one. I admit it gets a little bit too mushy for me in the end (and I can't get why they are so eager to bring on kids into the charade - aka Maddox and Ashlyn) But all in all it's a REALLY good series. It delivers exactly what it should - Action of the Paranormal staff and extraordinary Romance with Happily Ever After.

The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld #2) [Lucien & Anya] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

oh my, oh my, this one was de-li-sious! YUM YUM YUM all the way, funny and witty, full of action and a promise for more!

Anya is the goddess of Anarchy. We sorta met her on the previous book. She is the one who saved Ashlyn life (from the plague) and later on released Maddox from his curse.

From the first time she sees Lucien there's this spark she cannot ignore. Something about this serious (as in no humor serious) guy turns her on. and when he spots her at last (being transparent and not really there in their first encounters) he is SO attracted to her and can't believe she is attracted to his hideousness (his face and also part of his body is heavily scared)

Addicted by Charlotte Stein ~~~ ★ (DNF 48%) ~~~

I hate doing this.. but after thinking and re-thinking this I decided to write this review anyway...

First off let me start with a confession - I didn't finish the book. I'm about half way through (chapter 8 if that matters to someone..), I started reading this one little more than two weeks ago, I got to a third of the book before telling myself - this is it for me.. I'm NOT continuing.. Then I got to thinking, it's a short Novel - less than 200 pages I SHOULD finish it and see if it gets better or if I'm missing out something.. So yesterday I had an hour to read and I since I didn't want to start a new book I decided to give this one another try. No. It simply doesn't work for me. I CAN'T keep on reading..

The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1) [Maddox & Ashlyn] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This one is going to be a loooong review and also will contain mild spoilers (which I'll "warn" about :))

First - I loved this book! I feel like it's been a while since my last PNR series, but actually it's only been a little more than 2 months from finishing the Midnight Breed series. It seems that no matter how much I enjoy reading "regular" romance books I always find myself missing a dab of supernatural in my reading. I yearn for those manly man creatures with inhuman strength and special abilities (and disabilities ;)) that simply doesn't exist in our world.

The Darkest Fire (Lords of the Underworld #0.5) [Geryon & Kadence] by Gena Showalter ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is the first novella starting the Lords of the Underworld series. 
It's been a while since I read a Paranormal Romance book and I missed it! :) There is this limit of "fun" in "regular" romance books and since I started my reading fever with Fantasy books I find it fitting that I "grew into" the PNR genre. 

This is my first book by Gena Showalter and actually I"m not even sure what this series is about! :) I just got a really good recommendation on it and added it to my ever growing books to read.
