The first true book of the Lords of the Underworld begins with Maddox. Once a warrior who protected and guarded the gods, he is now a tortured and immortal warrior who resides on Earth. His pride having been stung because Pandora was chosen over him to guard a sacred box that housed demons, he and others that felt the same planned to prove Pandora was not suited to the task. But when they unleashed the demons, they found that even they could not best the creatures. As punishment each warrior was cursed to possess one of the released demons. Maddox was cursed with the demon of Violence, and due to its violent nature Maddox was taken over by the demon's nature without no way to control it and ended up killing Pandora. As punishment for killing the chosen warrior of the god's Maddox was doubly cursed - ever night at midnight he would be killed, with the same sword he used to kill Pandora and his soul would be taken to hell and there it would remain until morning.
For thousand's of years, Maddox has endured his curse with no hope of being freed. Or is there a way to break his death curse? One scared and brave woman may actually hold the key to his freedom.
