He is the guardian of hell, more monster than man.My Thoughts: This was my virgin trek into the Lords of the Underworld series and I'm not sure if I should have started with the prequel. Which doesn't make sense in some ways but I keep thinking that I would have ended up getting more out of it if I had a couple of the books under my belt. Seriously, does that make sense to anyone? I think if I had read even just book 1 before reading this one, I would have had a working knowledge base (small as it might be) and Geryon and Kadence's story would have had more emotional impact.
She is the goddess of oppression, more angel than woman.
Together they will enter the flames to battle a horde of demon lords -- and discover a passion unlike any other...
Discover the origin of the dimOuniak and the demon spirits trapped within.
Which isn't to say this is a bad story. It's not. It's interesting and it has a cool Beauty and the Beast vibe. I like that. I just kept wondering when the Lords of the Underworld were going to pop up and show me their butterflies. Wow. That sounds a lot dirtier when I read it than it did in my head.
I liked the story, don't get me wrong. I liked it enough to dive straight into book 1 after finishing this one. I just wish I had held off on this so I could have savored the relationship without going over the mythology to see what I was missing.
Still, I liked it. Onto book 1!
