Scarlet is a mystery to both the Lords and Gideon. Her horrific past has made her the hardened warrior Gideon finds but she wasn't always this way. Cursed with her own demon, Scarlet is bound to Nightmares. Able to transverse the dream world and make fears come to life she is viewed as a threat to the Lords and captured. Imprisoned beneath the fortress she lures Gideon to her but is this the first time they've met?
Seeing her in the dungeon, Gideon knows he has seen her before but from where he knows not, visions of her eyes have haunted his dreams for years for reasons he doesn't know. Her shock declaration that they have in fact been married fills him with guilt. How could he have forgotten this beautiful woman? Determined to find the truth he steals her away from imprisonment intending to seduce her for the information. What ensues neither of them expected.
Filled with twists and surprises this book keeps the reader always guessing right to then end never sure how it'll end between the two. Gideon is an great male lead funny and charming and Scarlet, although almost placed in an anti hero light in the previous book is an great female lead, independent and strong as her own character. Although mainly their story there are chapters dedicated to Strider with a hunter captive and Amun as he struggles with his demon of secrets. Defiantly a must read book absolutely amazing!
“You’re so ugly.”
Oooo. Awkward…not to mention rude and hurtful! You’d probably give them a slap, right? Now do you understand poor Gideon’s problem? Everything he says is the opposite of what he means and I did seriously consider writing this review in Gideon speech but figured it’d be way too confusing. But enough about Gideon, let’s talk about his book, a book I was eagerly powering through the series to read!
The Darkest Lie has it all; humour, heartache, romance, action, kinkiness…and it’s all rolled up into one tidy package (pfft, package! C’mon, Jazz, be mature about this!) comprised of fantastic world building and equally fantastic writing. The LotU series is set in universe that blends our reality with the conjurings of Gena Showalter’s imagination and the result is a world in which readers can quite easily lose themselves for hours on end. Each of Gena’s characters are as unique as they are believable and I’m not sure if this is fair on the reader’s part because I have genuinely been looking into a weekend break in Budapest and my heart breaks to know I won’t be able to hang out with the Lords!
As for Gideon and Scarlet’s story, I think it’s one the best in the series yet.Read more ›
As it happens, the storyline more than made up for it. The chemistry between Gideon and Scarlet was one of the best I've ever seen in the series and the big twist was conducted expertly. Some of the smaller twists were easier to see coming but that didn't make them any less enthralling to read. One of the least anticipated books in the series quickly became one of my favourites and made me really eager for the next one to be out so that I can see what happens. I would recommend a hundred percent!
Olivia faces competition from Legion; the babyish female demon that Aeron views as a daughter, yet Legion definitely does not consider Aeron a father figure. Olivia is also trying to woo a man who does not want a relationship, yet his demon Wrath is besotted by Olivia; her sinless soul a touch of heaven to him. The backdrop to their budding relationship is littered with face offs with Hunters, tricky deals with the Gods and the introduction of a new Lord; Scarlet the keeper of Nightmares is a gal you definitely want on your side in a fight and her intended match Gideon (Lies) is in for a very interesting courtship ("The Darkest Lie" due for pub. June). There are furious moments of action, sharp verbal sparring and a wonderfully written romance; all expected from this author and delivered in abundance.
Olivia is a likeable mix of contradictions; innocent and temptress, peace lover and fiery warrior, she proves herself an equal partner in a relationship with an immortal warrior. Aeron and his demon Wrath I found slightly off. As Wrath is immediately able to read any of the sins committed by an individual and punish them accordingly, l was left feeling he acted more like vengeance or even justice in some cases.Read more ›
