Frankly, I only read it for the Gena Showalater novella. ( )

Rating for "The Darkest Angel" and "Love Me to Death." ( )
  CupcakeMom | Feb 12, 2014 |
I have been trying to read Heart of Darkness, an anthology, for the last 10 days. I made it to page 38, and I'm calling it a fail. It has three authors: Gena Showalter, Maggie Shayne and Susan Krinard.

The first story is The Darkest Angel by Gena Showalter. It is unbearably slow and boring. The lead hero (?) comes across as mildly retarded to me. I get it, he's an Angel and he's never had these kinds of emotions before, however, he has seen others have sex, but doesn't get his dick is getting hard? The heroine is a harpy who has the maturity of a 12 y/o boy. Just way too over the top for me. I liked her in little doses in the last Lord's of the Underworld book.

I attempted to read the second story, Love Me To Death by Maggie Shayne. I read half the first page and just said screw it. I have no idea if this story is any good. I have no idea if Lady of the Nile by Susan Krinard is any good. Frankly at this point I don't care.

This is the second book in a row of Gena's that has been very disappointing. I forced myself to finish Playing With Fire, I won't do it again. If it isn't working, I'm walking away. ( )

Ominibus of 3 stories by Gena Showalter, Maggie Shayne and Susan Krinard

If you are reading Gena Showalter's "Lords of the Underworld" series, THE DARKEST ANGEL is a part of that series and a must read. (see the book order for this series at the bottom of this review.

DARKEST ANGEL gets (3) stars. While it is well written, it is a bit repetitive. Boy likes girl; boy chases girl; girl resist boy; boy continues to chase; girl likes boy; they like each other. I was bothered by having an angel as one of the main characters.

LOVE ME TO DEATH
I give this book (3) stars. Wow, nice mystery. Friends, David, Mark, Randy, Kevin and Brad, get into trouble. An unsettled Spirit. Truths that must be made known. Love brought to fruition through Sara.

LADY OF THE NILE
I give this book (1) star. Boring (hear me yawn). This book totally made no sense until close to the end. The characters and their roles were not clear. You will like this story if your mind runs along the lines of "Indiana Jones and the Tomb Raiders".

***THE FOLLOWING IS THE TRUE ORDER THAT YOU SHOULD READ THE "LORDS OF THE UNDERWORLD" series*** It will make more sense if you read the books in this order. (see this video on Youtube) http://youtu.be/mGJqMGiLv6M

(ss) The Darkest Fire (a short story found in INTO THE DARK)

1 The Darkest Night

2 The Darkest Kiss

3 The Darkest Pleasure

4 The Darkest Whisper

8 The Darkest Lie

9 The Darkest Secret ( )

I'm currently reading the Lords of the Underworld series and since I want to get to the next book, I only read Gena Showalter's novella "The Darkest Angel". It was really, really good. I absolutely love this series and it was fun to see things from the harpy, Bianca's POV as she is almost as much fun as Anya, the goddess of Anarchy. Though they've been mentioned, this is the first time angels have actually been introduced in the series. I thought Lysander was great and really enjoyed meeting Olivia who happens to be the heroine in the next book. That being said, I'm off to start reading Aeron and Olivia's story. Once I read the other novella's in this anthology my rating will probably change. I can guarantee that the other stories will not compare to this one. ( )
