3.5

PNR.... I prefer UF, yes, definitely UF. Somehow the characters seem more realistic (as realistic as vampires /werewolves/demons/Angels can be), as do the emotions, relationships and dilemmas.
PNR on the other hand are usually bigger than life, over the top romance. The heroine is usually a strong women yet in need of a rescue yet feisty, oh sooooo feisty (it's hard to be a heroine these days, you need to be a damsel in distress without being a damsel in distress). And the hero, tortured, brooding and strong, give or take humor, who usually needs rescue from himself.
I'm an eyes roller, yes I am.

But sometimes I, too, find that a good over the top affair is just what I need.

I enjoyed this one. I thought the world Gena Showalter created is very interesting and captivating. I also liked the secondary characters. The only problem I had with the book was that I didn't really care about the H/H. She was ok and he was fine, but I just didn't..... You know? I wanted to be swept away and I wasn't.

But I do want to read more about this world. Who knows , maybe my prince is just around the corner...

I've heard great things about this series. I'm very glad that I finally checked it out. It has lots of sexiness, action and a really good story going on. All of the Lords are stuck with a demon. There's a battle brewing. I'll definitely keep to reading to see where it goes. ( )

I read and reviewed this book in December of 2008. It's that old. I am posting my complete and original (non-rewritten) review because when looking back I would like to think that my reviews now are quite a bit different and better then they were over a year ago. Since I wrote this I discoverd that Showalter did write a prequel to the series which was released in ebook format only. She did release that story in a omnibus a few days ago called Into The Dark which I can't wait to read.

Written Dec 2008.....
Although a decent start to a new paranormal series I found that I wasn't fully invested in the characters until towards the end of the book. I thought that Ashlyn's psychic ability was extremely interesting and although played a part throughout the book I might have enjoyed the book more had the book been her book with Maddox finding her....if that makes any sense.


Maddox is a cursed immortal who along with his friends thousands of years ago became too self important and released the demon's from Pandora's Box. As punnishment the Gods cast a demon into each immortal to be housed for all eternity. Maddox's own demon is that of Violence. This makes him the most dangerous of all members of the lords of the underworld. Personally I think that Disease is more dangerous but whatever.

One a superficial note I love the cover. Not so keen on the second in the series cover but I can over look it to read it. Which I will read sooner or later. Based on the average rating I might just wait and move some of my paranormals that I KNOW will have a higher star rating ahead of the rest of the series. ( )

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.

Neither can resist the instant hunger that calms their torments...and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction--and a soul-shattering test of love....
