I am officially addicted to this series! I have just started the fourth book, The Darkest Whisper, and I just can’t stop reading them. If you haven’t read book #1 yet, there might be minor spoilers in the following review =)
The Darkest Kiss is Lucien’s, Keeper of Death, book and it was great to see the leader of The Lords getting his happily ever after.
Lucien has been doubly cursed by having to do Death’s deed and escort souls to heaven and hell and also being bonded to Maddox, by having to take and bring back his spirit from hell every night. Now, Lucien if free of the second curse and finds himself without knowing how to deal with his now found freedom.
Anya is the minor goddess of Anarchy has been on the run from Cronus, the Titans’ King, since the Titans overthrew the Greek Gods. However, she has found the time to create some chaos and even help The Lords, even though she has kept herself hidden, until now.
I already liked Lucian from the previous book, but I LOVED Anya in this book, she is such an amazing character. Gena has written such a strong, hilarious, vivacious, smart and determined character in Anya that it is impossible not to fall in love with her. She is definitely not perfect, not even close to it, but that only made her more special in my eyes and I can’t help but smile and even laugh out loud whenever she shows up.
Lucien is scarred, emotionally and physically and the fact that he does not believe that anyone could ever be attracted to him is very endearing and heartbreaking. It was amazing for me to see Anya’s attraction and later on, love for him and the power that their passion has on each other, specially despite all the obstacles they had to endure to be together.
I Loved this book, even more than the first. The plot is great, fast paced, full of action and thrilling. Despite being a PNR and having the danger of falling into the “all sex – no plot” trap, Gena Showalter has brought on a wonderful saga full of sexy and interesting characters along with great world building. Paranormal Romance can’t get better than that.
