New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a breathtaking Lords of the Underworld tale about a warrior trapped by darkness and the woman determined to save him
Having endured weeks of torture in the bowels of hell, Kane wants nothing to do with his beautiful rescuer, Josephina Aisling. The half-Fae female threatens to awaken the demon of Disaster inside him—a beast he’s determined to kill, no matter the price.
Josephina is hunted by a brutal enemy—her royal family—and Kane is her only source of protection. He’s also the only male to ever set her aflame, and even he succumbs to the heat. But as they navigate the treacherous world of the Fae, they are forced to make a choice: live apart…or die together.
“I never lie- except for the few times I do in fact lie, but it’s never intentional, and i’m totally telling the truth right now” She raised her right hand “promise”.”
MINOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT:
This book was… really disappointing. I had been waiting for Kane’s story since he was introduced and this book was just a giant let down. I don’t if it was the writing, the pacing, or just the main story line itself, but I was bored.
I also didn’t connect with Kane and Tink’s story at all. They had some cutesy moments, but I had a detached feeling when I was reading about them. I wanted the book to jump to someone else’s point of view or for their story to just speed up.
I couldn’t bring myself to care about the Fae plot line, and anyone that knows me knows that Fae are my favorite mythological species out there, so this should really speak to the quality of the book.
I did enjoy Tink as a character. I felt really bad for her and what had happened to her throughout her life. I was happy that she found Kane. I also highly enjoyed getting to see her interact with all of the other Lords’ mates. There were a couple of scenes when they were all together that I was fan-girling a little bit because a lot of my faves were in the same place. It was surreal in a way and I think Tink made a great addition to the Lords of the Underworld family.
I did care about what was happening with Cameo/Torin. Whenever their scenes came up, I was on the edge of my seat and ready for whatever was being thrown at me. I need more of both of their stories. Like ASAP. I will be continuing the series and I can’t wait to get to them!
