When Pandora was chosen by the Greek Gods to protect dimOuniak; a sacred box containing demons too destructive even to be trusted in Hell, other warriors, those that guarded the King of the Gods were left embarrassed. Determined to prove their skills, these Guardians stole the box and unwittingly released the most vile demons imaginable into an unsuspecting world; unable to recapture them as Pandora's box had mysteriously disappeared. In retaliation and to prevent further destruction in the world, the Gods cursed these warriors to each contain a demon within their bodies throughout eternity; creating the Lords of the Underworld.

Maddox is not only cursed to house the spirit of Violence within him, he is further cursed by the Gods for the death of Pandora; slaughtering her unknowingly whilst under the control of his demon. Every night at midnight he is killed by Reyes (who houses the demon Pain) and his soul is escorted to Hell by Lucien (who contains Death). Constantly battling for control over his demon, Maddox is left unable to form any meaningful relationship; always worried that Violence could explode during a moment of heated passion. Yet both he and his demon are destined to meet a very special woman; a woman capable of taming Violence, twisting his darkness into sensuality and his destructive nature into a deep possessiveness. For once Maddox and Violence are in complete agreement; Ashlyn Darrow has captured the heart of both man and demon.

Ashlyn Darrow is utilised by an Institute that studies the paranormal for her ability to hear any conversation ever spoken in any given location, no matter how long ago it was or the language used. Yet she longs for silence and a normal life and searches for someone who could possibly train her to control her gift.

the first book i read out of this books series was Darkest lie. i was hooked and became addicted and spent all my pennies get the rest. they were money well spent. you fall instantly in love with all the character's. they draw you into their world from the first page to the last and has u begging for more.

in the Darkest night, the first of the lords books that introduces to the deliciously sexy lords. this book is about Maddox/demon of Violence. Maddox is cursed to die every night at midnight and to spend each night in the flames of hell. he was cursed over killing the guardian of the box Pandora. Ashlyn has a power to hear all conversations that have happened in the spot she stands. she hears about beings who are gifted with unusual powers and instantly thinks that they can help her control the voices in her head. she travel to the fortress in the mountains and last thing she thought to find is a dark, tall and the sexiest man she has ever seen in front of her demanding is she a hunter, that in the stranger's presence the voices stop and she doesn't want to leave him. Maddox is confused by the feeling he has for this human woman. he assumes she is bait and there to lead the hunter to them but cant deny her plea's to stay with him and wows to protect her even against his brother warriors. they must face the danger ahead together and learn to trust their hearts. trust me, this book is worth reading if u like romance, danger and suspense, and did i mention hot sexy dangerous warriors. hope you enjoy it, I did! :)

I'm not going to explain the plot as othes have already done that. However I will explain why I bought this book and what I thought about it.

I have spent the last four months reading and re-reading the entire 'Dark Series' about the Carpathian Race, written by Christmine Feehan. Powerful men under threat of extinction living with the curse of longevity and the prospect of turning vampire if they do not find their one true mate. I tell you this so you understand my constant comparisons.

So, anyway when Amazon recommended this series I decided to give it a go. I read this book in about 4 sittings over about a 36 hour period, fitting in normally daily life around a husband and two demanding you children. It kept me up into the early hours of the morning when it was literally impossible to keep my eyes open another minute. It dragged me from housework and other mundane chores so that whenever anyone needed to find me I would be could be located sprawled across my bed with my nose in the book, or huddled up in a corner having only popped in the room to put some washing away, but enticed to pick it up again.

It bears a resemblence to the Feehan series in that these are powerful, dominant men, warriors, filled with passion, all living under a curse and hoping to find away out of it. This sort of story obviously works for me. But that's where the similarities end...sort of.

I found the book much more graphic, the subtle descriptions of sex that I am used to with CF pushed a little further, although not as much of the page is devoted to the act itself; but there'is no shying away from naming the body parts or descibing certain acts.
