There is not one thing not to love about this series. Every book is excellent and never lets me down. I really honestly thought that book 1 would be the best in the series but I was wrong. I don't think I can choose and absolute favorite they have all been terrific.
Seriously finally a book about Paris. I am sure anyone who loves this series has been waiting patiently for his story and final Gena gives it to us. Boy oh Boy does she follow through and sure makes it a good one.
Paris goes through so much throughout the past few books after losing Sienna. He has so much to overcome. His addiction to Ambrosia and his darkness that he himself created. He is truly tormented without Sienna and will stop at nothing to get her back, Nothing.
This book had loads of action and I loved every minute of it. The part Sienna had with Cronus' end...didn't see that one coming. Seriously...who would have thought that's how it would have happened. Oh but it was so good and definitely deserved. Not only was there action but seriously Paris is the lord of sex so you know there was going to be some steaminess to it.
Now we have to wait until next year for Kane's book. I really hope he is able to recover from what happens to him this book. I am sure he is going to have some emotional damage to get over after what he suffered through. I hope that he truly doesn't bring the apocolypse. But I guess I must wait and see.
I seriously hope that Gena decides to write William and Gilly's story soon. I would love to see William and Gilly together and of coarse to truly find out exactly how all powerful he truly is. Afterall rumor is he his Lucifer's brother. Eitehr way he is a favorite and I would love to read his story
This series has been stagnating for awhile.
The characters don't feel very unique anymore, almost all the women have the same "voice", and it feels like we go in circles with the Hunters but the story never really progresses.
The book was way too long. The Paris/Sienna story was rather a letdown. They reunited pretty quickly and barring a minor misunderstanding or two, not much really happened. Things seemed ominous with Cronus and Zacharel both giving Sienna ultimatums, but nothing ever really came of them. I mean it did but it just felt like a big happy accident rather than things being propelled by Sienna's strong personality or Paris's great love. Honestly their story was kind of boring.
On the other hand, Showalter did finally address some of my other complaints about the series. The good part of the book was the build up of interest in Zacharel, William, Kain, and Legion/Galen. There was a terrific denouement at the end and a lot of resolution to loose ends. Thank you Gena Showalter, while the stories of the Lords goes on, the Hunter stuff seems to be at an end (fingers crossed). But it was all tied up so neatly with Sienna at the center, it felt a little forced, like a Hallmark card.
Hopefully Showalter dives into the characters more in her next installment. It seems like she's trying to revitalize the series and hopefully that gives new life to her writing as well.
The book was a great end to Paris's struggles. I really like the introduction of new characters that may make some new appearances in future books, now that most of the current Lords all have significant others. The story was a bit hyped, but in all was a good one. Thought the fighting / intrigue with Galen and Chronus whould have lasted a bit loger. Seemed a bit rushed at the end. The way it all ended was way too easy for Sienna. Almost sounded like she is becoming a spoiled brat. Looking foward to William's, Torin's, and Zacharal's book. Great addition and read in the Lords of the Underworld series.
