An enjoyable entry in the Lords of the Underworld series. I liked Kaia's spunk and humor. This was fun and had some laugh-out-loud moments. I was on the fence about Paris's story, but I changed my mind after reading his snippets in this one.
Excellent and rather different addition to the LOTU series. So different, in fact, that one almost wonders if it was actually ghost-written by Kresley Cole (author of the Immortals After Dark series). Suddenly the characters have a sense of humor? Suddenly they're wearing t-shirts with funny sayings? Now there's the great Harpie competition? Umm borrowing from your friend much, Gena? I haven't been enjoying the LOTU books that much lately and actually thought to quit reading, but if Showalter is going to turn this series into an IAD knockoff, well more power to her. Can't get enough of Kresley Cole.
Stider was funnier and sexier than he ever was in the other books, Kaia was entertaining and strong, the Harpies a great group altogether. Some good side story with both Kane (star of book 13) and William.
What is there not to love about Strider. His inner monologue is hilarious at times. Not to mention his constant ego checks or lack there of sometimes. He's thinks very highly of himself but for good reason. In the previous book I wasn't all that thrilled about him but now that we get to dive into his character he changed my mind.
He is competitive (afterall his demon is defeat), full of himself, and possessive. However he is sarcastic, funny, protective, and caring. He cares about Kaia and all of his friends. So much so that he oftens takes their personal problems as challenges for himself. Especially with Kaia who is just as bad as he is at times. Plus he is hot. Who doesn't love reading about a hot alpha male character. I know I do :-)
She keeps him on his toes. She's just as possessive, competitive, and full of her self as he is. But she protects her family at all cost. She is incredibly strong willed and even better at fighting than Strider. So she is a good match for him
