The Darkest Kiss

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

What was this book about?

Lucien once had it all – he was a guard for the gods. But jealousy overtook him and his fellow soldiers and he committed an act that has cursed him for eternity. Now Lucien lives with the demon Death inside him. He is forced to take those that die to either heaven or hell.

Anya is the lesser god of Anarchy. She was attracted to Lucien from the minute she met him. She can’t stay away from him. Anya is also cursed with her own variation of a hellish curse and knows it isn’t smart to get involved with him but can’t help herself.

To make matters worse Lucien is ordered to kill Anya. Can he do that to the woman he loves.

What did you think about the book?

Book 2 in this series is ok but not as easy to get into as the first. It is moving the overarching plot forward. You meet some of the other men/demons and their women as well. So this isn’t just about Anya and Lucien but instead about all of the Lords of the Underworld.

Anya is definitely a strong woman who knows what she wants and will do anything to get it. At the same time is petty and jealous and just wanting to cause chaos (then again what else is anarchy)?

What genre would you consider this?
Paranormal Romance
