Flora Reviews… The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld #2) by Gena Showalter.

Hello Avid Readers,

Last year, I came to the decision that mini reviews are the way forward for this book blogger. 😉 I’ve already just been writing a paragraph or two for my Amazon and Goodreads reviews for the last few years – especially when it’s a book with thousands of reviews already – but as I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go for paranormal romance fans, I thought I should really post those old smaller reviews on here too, right?

I started reading Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series back in 2017 and today I’d like to share my original review for the second novel in that series.

So, on with my thoughts about…

The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld #2) by Gena Showalter

She has tempted many men…but never found her equal. Until now.

Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of Anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death—a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining…

I really liked this action packed, emotional fuelled book!

I am quickly becoming a huge fan of this series. What a gripping story!

I don’t think that this book can be read without having read the first one. It leaves you needing to read the next book to continue the main background story arc. Plus there are some romantic sub-plots left hanging (hence 4 not 5 stars). However, what a cram-packed tale!

I loved the relationship development between our romantic couple, the twists & turns, the action, the passion and the heart melting romance. I can’t wait to read the next book in this amazing series!
