Excellent... romantic... "steamy", mythological novel.

Book 2 of the Lords of the Underworld, preceded by The Darkest Night and followed by the Darkest Pleasure. Sexy story of Anya, the minor Goddess of Anarchy, and Lucien, the leader of the Lords of the Underworld, and the keeper of the demon "death". The story continues where Ashlyn and Maddox's ended. The lords are looking for the 4 artifacts in order to find Pandora's box and Anya is trying to help them, even though Lucien was ordered by Cronus to kill her. I like the fact that she doesn't give up on Lucien even though he pushes her away every time. In this story we continue to learn what is happening to Reyes and Danika, and also there is some small hint of Paris' troubles. I will be rereading all the books from now on, as I missed some books in the series and lost some meaning to the plot.

Couldn't put it down! Definitely a page turner! This series is so much fun and an easy read if you are looking for something quick and exciting. I love mythology, and this book is a perfect mix of mythology, romance, action, and a little bit of darkness.

Most likely guarantee to make you cry in every turn, just sad on the past lives that Lucien and Anya had have to endure. Great book I enjoyed every last bit of it.

So these books are good but, if your looking for something dark this isn't the series you want to read, the author sugar coats all of the bad.

I love this book!!! What great characters!! I also love all the teasing that goes on about the books that are to come. I cant wait for Reyes, and Paris' books. Gena Showalter you sure know how to write books that just grab a hold of you and drags you into the world she has created.

Lucien is the Warrior of Death and Lord of the Underworld. Charged with taking souls to heaven or hell upon their death, Lucien has no choice but to do as he is has been commanded to do. His demon is Death and Lucien despairs of ever being free. His sin? He was the leader of the warriors charged with protecting the dimOuniak and instead of protecting it, he opened it and unleashed hordes of demons throughout the world. Death is his punishment and his life. Until Anya. Anya makes him smile. She makes him laugh. But most of all she makes him yearn in ways he had long ago forgotten. These yearnings make the task he has been given that much harder. It seems the leader of the gods wants Anya dead and Lucien is to be her destroyer.

Anya, the Goddess of Anarchy, has set her sights on Lucien, the Warrior of Death. Doing everything in her power to make him notice her, she just wants to feel his skin and touch him in ways that she shouldn't be thinking. As the Goddess of Anarchy, she must allow herself some mischief in order to survive and in doing so, she tries her best to make Lucien laugh. While she wants Lucien with every breath in her immortal body, she knows they can never consummate their relationship because her curse is such that in doing so, Anya would be forever in love with Lucien, even if he does not love her back.

When the man she has come to love and cherish tells her he has come to claim her for Death, Anya is not having any part of it, even if her desire stays strong. Pursuing each other across the world, forces beyond their control threaten them and when it is too late to turn back, they despair at ever being together.
