Review: The Darkest Kiss

The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld,  #2)The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter

This is the second book in The Lords of the Underworlds. It follows Lucien aka The Keeper of Death.

The story picks up where book 1 left off with the Lords still searching for clues to the wherabouts of Pandora's Box. The story also introduces us to Anya, a minor Goddess who is enamored with Lucien.

Luciens story was interesting to read after not liking him too much in book 1. His darkness is explained and lets us know about his scars, his reason for not allowing a woman close to him for thousands of years.

Anya has secrets and a curse of her own that she has to deal with throughout the book. Anya was the perfect mate for Lucien. She was funny, witty, strong, stubborn and a kick ass warrior in her own right. She always had Lucien on his toes and wondering what she would do next.

Even though the book was Luciens, in a way, I felt that it was more about Anya. It seemed to give more detail about her than Lucien, she seemed to fight her curse/demons more than he did. But it didn't stop the fun of reading the book.

It was the perfect pairing for fun, love and fighting the Gods that has me excited to read the next book in the series.

I am starting this one this week! I was hoping it was mostly about her because she was so fun in the first book!

Great review! Thanks for sharing. And I love the Phantom theme. "Let your soul take you where you long to be" :)
