It is very frustrating when you want to read a book so badly but have to keep pushing it back because you need to read some other books (that you've made a compromise to read) first. Well finally I was able to read this one after months of pushing it to the back burner.
What can I say! When I first read this series I was looking to start a new series and was given Lords of the Underworld as a challenge read and couldn't wait to read more. This series takes place in a world where gods are at war with titans and that immortals in between have to do their dirty work or pay the consequences while been hunted for the demons that possess them.
This stories are full of action, adventure, romance and sacrifices made in the name of love. What I liked about this story is that it kept me guessing. I kept thinking that Lucien was going to find a way to break Anya's curse. Then I kept thinking that Ms Showalter was going to let Anya keep the key somehow. I also kept thinking that somehow Lucien was going to convince Anya of his love and that with time she was going to remember. But guess what? Yup that's not what happened.
I was surprised at every turn with the clever ways Ms Showalter kept spinning the story and how she was able to make it all work. I just can wait to see what else is in store for this poor demon-warriors, I mead Aeron? Paris? This woman is crazy!!
