In this sexy new installment of Showalter’s bestselling Lords of the Underworld series, the haunted Amun meets a woman who tempts him like no other…
Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when the immortal warrior is chained and isolated to protect those he loves, death is his only hope of release—until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty.
Haidee is a demon-assassin, raised to despise Amun’s kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul…and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her.
People stared. Maybe because they were giants compared to everyone else, both in height and muscle mass. Maybe because of the telltale bulge of weapons at their waist. Or maybe because William opened a bag of Doritos and ate while he shopped. Hard to tell.”
MINOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT:
I really liked this installment in the Lords of the Underworld series. It was fast paced and constantly had my attention. There were also a few plot twists that I didn’t see coming. I enjoyed getting to see the new characters as well as the old ones. I definitely shed a few tears but there were also a few times I was laughing really hard.
I liked Haidee. While she wasn’t my favorite of the main female characters so far, I still liked her as a person. I admired her dedication to what she believed in even though it might have been the wrong thing in the beginning. I liked that she could hold her own and didn’t need someone to fight her battles for her. I appreciated the fact that once she knew that she wanted Amun, she didn’t let personal prejudices or what other people thought get in the way.
I loved Amun. After this book, I really think he is the most selfless of the Lords. I admired his dedication to his friends and his willingness to sacrifice his personal happiness for theirs. He goes through so much emotional and mental pain just to make sure that his friends don’t have to go through any of it. I was so happy that he found someone to share his pain with and someone that would be there when he needed them. I think Haidee and Amun balance each other really well and I think they will be really happy together.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. Of course I will be reading the next installment and probably all of the ones that follow it. I am very interested in what is going to happen after that minor cliffhanger with Kaia and I look forward to her and Strider’s story.
