I give it

Gena Showalter is one of my favorite romance novelist (Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter are tied) period. And since she was so kind to both retweet and tweet me back I’ve decided to take a look back at her work, and re-read and write reviews for each of her books. I also had to come up with a tittle for this series and sense its summer and these books are just sizzling why not .

 

His powers — Inhuman…
His passion — Beyond immortal . . .

All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she’ll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member — a man trapped in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments . . . and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction — and a soul-shattering test of love . . .

Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive — and unimaginably powerful

The first book of the Lord of Underworld series, is quite mesmerizing. In a very tactful way, Gena Showalter has manage to recreate a world out of a cautionary children’s tale told to us when we were younger and make it sexy and dangerous.

When I think of the characters Ashlyn and Maddox I’m reminded of beauty and the beast. Maddox is a warrior possessed with the demon Violence, both of which respond endearingly to Ashlyn, is undoubtedly the beast. While Ashlyn is the very definition of a damsel in distress and it works. The loneliness that they each feel, is eradicated when they first look into each others eyes. And even though the sex is pretty hot, seeing these to characters fall in love is the real gem here. The idea that a man so entrance with violence can find peace and quiet with the mysterious Ashlyn is amazing.

Through the different dynamics at play, – the hunters trying to kill the warriors, the return of the ‘lost’ warriors, and the kidnapping of three innocent girls– its safe to say that there is a lot going on . Ms. Showalters take on this supernatural world is light years away from the vampire, werewolves etc., that we’re use to.

I can remember the first time I read this book. I was so entranced by the storyline, that I couldn’t help but tell everyone I knew to read this series. Some of the books aren’t my favorite, but each series has it’s hit and misses. I can not wait to ‘re-read the next book The Darkest Kiss.
