Having loved all the Lords that came before I was really looking forward to this, but it didn't live up to my expectations. It felt almost as if the author herself was bored but needed to tie up the last of the Lords in order to move onto something else. In this book we see Kane keeper of Disaster paired off with Josephina (Tink), a half human/half Fae, and the seeds of future romance for Cameo and Torin are sown with the introduction of their partners, one can only assume there will be two more books before the end and everyone lives happily ever after.
Whilst I understand not every book written by an author can be gold it's such a shame. This felt too rushed, too many things were glossed over and left me feeling unsatisfied. Sorry! die hard fans will buy it but please, please if this is your first introduction to Ms Showalter or her Lords of the Underworld don't judge the rest of them by this one below par offering. Give the others a try first.

OK firstly I have followed this series since the beginning, bought every book and liked every book. Kane was one of the Lords I was most looking forward to reading about because he was a bit of a mystery, she didn't do him justice at all. The book felt like it was written by an amateur and at times it was very frustrating.

The heroine was likable and could have been much better than Showalter wrote her, as for Kane she didn't expand much on his past or on his demon other than to keep saying 'I hate you, I hate you more' silly at times and immature. Also very little of the other Lords was focused on which again is rubbish, too much of William trying to get laid by every female around him, again just annoying and kind of ruining his funny character.

Paris was always my least favourite Lord yet his book even for me was one of, if not the strongest book of all of the series, I feel I should have loved this book because I liked Kane so much but it just fell totally flat.

In general I feel Showalter is either losing her touch or running out of ideas, in my opinion the worst mistake she made was introducing the world of the Fae, it felt too much like a Cinderella story, if I wanted that I would watch Disney! Disappointing for a dedicated fan like me but it won't stop me reading the remainder of the series.
One redeeming factor is she gave a little insight into Torin and Cameo's books, both of which should be great, let's hope she does them justice.

I have this whole series and I love the Lords of the Underworld. I've always felt sorry for Kane with the demon he has and how it puts him apart from the others and I was hoping in this book he would find his way and come into his own.

Unfortunately I don't think this was achieved. There was a scene at a nightclub which I really didn't like at all and I felt was unecessary as the emotions etc could have come out in a different situation/manner. It was pretty much the main reason for me not liking this book. Kane's emotions for Josephina were yo-yoing all over the place that it was hard to keep track of what mood he was in at the time.
Josephina was a great character that dealt with a poor past brilliantly and has some of the funniest one liners I've ever read. I did think her strength could be made more apparent, it wasn't really commented on but implied.

I want to point out that I do love Gena Showalter books so I'm quite sad I've felt the need to write this review.

I actually really enjoyed this book, however I do think that the ending felt very rushed and didn't quite explain or tie everything in as Gena normally does. I must admit that Kane's story wasn't on my 'top of stories I want to read' list and maybe this was down to the fact that he has never really had a big side storyline in any of the series so far except for the last book Darkest Seduction (Lords of the Underworld), but he has now become a firm favourite of mine out of the Lords.

For anyone who hasn't read any of the books in the series I would strongly urge you to start at the beginning with The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld: Book 1) as although the books could be read individually there is a lot of back story that does only make sense when read in order.

The series is set around a group of twelve immortal warriors (and absolutely hunky ones at that!) who once served the Greek Gods. Zeus decided to give possession and protection of the dimOuniak to the immortal warrior Pandora (which is why the alternate name for it is Pandora's Box). The dimOuniak/Pandora's Box held all the evil of the world such as Violence, Death, Pain, Doubt, Wrath, Lies, Secrets, Defeat, Promiscuity, Disease, Misery and Disaster and all of their Demons were kept safely locked in the Box. Twelve of the other immortal warriors (Lords of the Underworld) were upset that Zeus had entrusted the box to Pandora and not to them and therefore stole the box from her and subsequently released the demons into the world.
