I absolutely love the way Mrs. Showalter sets the foundation of future stories in her current books...I'd much rather get all of the "back story" on the next book as it pertains to the current story...and although this is my second time reading this series I don't clearly remember what happens in the next books and can't wait to read Reyes and Paris' story. I also hope Aeron finds his way and doesn't have to kill.
Any who...this series is AWESOME and I'm only on the 2nd book...I highly recommend it!
We sort of met Anya in the previous book - the first of the series, The Darkest Night - but only in this one does she reveal herself to the Lords. And she does it by wanting to seduce Lucien, the scarred Lord, the one possessed by the demon of death. My heart broke for him and for him doubting Anya's intentions and feelings. While she tries seducing him because she's attracted to him, she goes and falls in love with him.
I wanted to smack Lucien a time or two, he was a jerk in some scenes but he falls in love with the crazy goddess, so all's well, in the end.
Perfect addition to this amazing series filled with all sorts of mythological facts and characters brought to life and placed into the 21st century. The story progresses more and more, so be sure to read all of them and in order for a better understanding.
4 1/2 - 5 stars. Brilliant.
Lucian is possessed by the Incarnation of Death, he takes souls to their final resting place. He has been hurt and destroyed by love before and now he knows no woman would want a tortured soul with a scarred face and body like his. Anya's warmth and caring reach deep into the scarred torn depths of his soul. He can't believe so beautiful a goddess would want him.
Anya is a the goddess of anarchy. She helped the lovers in the first book and the new Gods are after her. She has something that the leader of the Titans wants badly. What she wants is Lucian, something about the brooding dark Lord calls out to the woman in Anya. She is willing to help them find the Box, and give life and love to Lucian.
Lucian and the other demon possessed warriors are on the hunt for Pandora's box if others find it they are doomed. Now Cronos, leader of the Titans, has ordered Lucian to take Anya's soul and Lucian must fight the attraction that burns between him and the goddess.
I really like this series. These hunky tormented warriors make for great reading. I look forward to the next one.
Where to start? I have read the two previous books and I was intrigued with Lucien as the warrior and possessed by the demon of Death in Book One.
So, here we are in The Darkest Kiss and Anya (little chaos/anarchy) starts stalking Lucien (who could blame her). After one kiss, the two of them are off on an adventure that had me holding on for dear life and at the end I was a hot mess after crying because of the love between Lucien and Anya and the lengths they were both willing to go to do have their love endure.
Reading the previous book helps to keep all the players straight, however, I highly recommend reading this book as a standalone for a wonderfully written love story with adventure, humor and what one will do to be with the one they love.
