icked this one up because several of my friends are obsessed with this series. So I had pretty high expectations going in and was left a little disappointed.

Zeus's warriors made the mistake of opening Pandora's box and unleashed demons onto the Earth. As a punishment, Zeus cursed each of the warriors to confine a demon within their body. Oddly enough, those demons manifested as big arse butterfly tattoos on each of them. I don't understand that connection, but okay, whatever. Each demon the warriors took have a defining characteristic. Maddox, the hero of this story, has the demon, violence. He also won a bonus curse of having to die every night at midnight. After centuries of living with this curse, Maddox's brooding is interrupted when a woman appears claiming to need the warriors' help.


I enjoyed the mythology Showalter inserts into this book, but (as usual) I couldn't get into the captive heroine plot. Its a fairly typical, heroine is locked away by the hero and for inexplicable reasons falls in love with him, story. So, I was bored most of the time. I might try to continue this series to see if I like any of the other books better, but I'm not holding my breath. ( )

The Darkest Night is one of my favorite books to re-read. It combines a mythological world that is unique to the growing genre, sizzling sex that never ever gets old, and characters that continue to delight. Maddox and Ashlyn make a dynamite couple! Showalter was smart to start this series with such a compelling story line. If you’re a fan of paranormal romance and you haven’t given The Lords of the Underworld a shot, what are you waiting for?!

I was tempted to not finish this one but once I've started something I have to finish it. I normally find alpha characters like Maddox adorable but I didn't really feel any connection to any of the cast. Also, too awkwardly porny. You can write those scenes in a way that seems almost artistic, she unfortunately just gives you a really weird play by play. ( )

First let me say, just so that it is not mistaken or lost in translation somewhere else in this review, this book is HOT. It is so hot I had to take breaks and fan myself while reading, not really, but you get the idea. I love the characters in this book, and the story premise, I was surprised when I started reading since I had never read a book, romance or otherwise, that was based on the Pandora's Box legend. I enjoy the witty banter between the "Lords" as well as the interludes that explain each of the demons and a bit more about the guys. I am curious about Cameo...being the only women in the bunch...if her demon (sorrow) affects her any differently than it does the men. I can't wait to see her book...and I hope that Torin is in it. This story line is fresh and new and sure to be a crowd pleaser all the way through the series. I am wanting Amun (secrets) and Aeron's (Wrath) stories already...jeez...on to the next book. ( )

Really liked this, but I guess it's going to take me some time to get used to the dynamics between all the characters. There were times they were quite a bit brute, to put it mildly, but as the story progressed, you could see that that is really the way they're wired. The world building was pretty good, with a lot possibilities for the lot to progress. As for Ashlyn and Maddox's relationship, things start good, but they get to a stand still halfway through and then things really pick up the pace until the end. Really good read. ( )

All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member--a man trapped in a hell of his own.
