The hero of this novel is Sabin the keeper of Doubt. For thousands of years he has survived carrying the demon of doubt, always hearting its poisonous voice about his deepest thoughts. He has ceased taking lovers after the last, Darla, was driven to suicide by his demon, he doesn't want to see another love one die. Continuing the search for the artefacts that will lead them to Pandora's box the Lords arrive in Egypt finding more then they bargained for.
Gwen has been held captive in the pyramid for a year, kept prisoner by the hunters as they try and fulfil their sinister plans. She is a harpy, an immortal being of immense power; however she isn't what you think. Although born to be a merciless killer she cannot bear the thought of hurting other living beings earning her the nickname of Gwendolyn the timid. Losing hope every day of ever being rescued she can't believe her luck when Sabin and his men barge in freeing her from her ungodly prison. She is instantly taken with Sabin but also afraid, not just of him but the damage she could do to him if she ever lost control.
Upon seeing Gwen, Sabin can't believe his luck. He had no hope of the war between the Lords and the Hunters ever ending, seeing the rest of his life surrounded by war. But Gwen could be the weapon he has been looking for, all he needs to do is convince her but that could be more difficult then he imagines. As well as trying to teach her to control her inner harpy he also has to fight the growing attraction he feels for her. He will not allow doubt to take another from him and will do anything to keep her at a distance. War is the most important thing in Sabin's life but can Gwen change that?
This was a brilliant book and a definite must read, Sabin was a great hero, both sweet and dangerous. Gwen works well as the female protagonist although taking longer to warm up to then the others in the series but she eventually loses the clinginess and becomes more of her own person. Although mostly Sabin and Gwen's story there are also chapters about Aeron and his mysterious new stalker, Paris and the effect of losing Sienna has on him and we even see more of Gideon and how he deals with his demon of lies. Rather then complicating the story it adds to it making it a more real and believable world and letting you know more about the different characters.
I don't think that this book can be read without having read the previous ones. The background story arc (main threat) is still ongoing as well as giving us some teaser romantic sub-plots to look forward to in future books.
I find Ms Showalter's writing style very easy to read and enjoy the twists, turns, action and passion that she fills her stories with. I will be downloading book 5 - The Darkest Passion - in this addictive series.
Sabin, war hungrym keep of the demon Doubt, stumble accorss a little red head as they rais a pyramid full of Hunter in Egypt. From the moment he see's her he's captivated! And on releasing her from her glas cell he knows there's moe to her than meet's the eye.
This story was great because we meet more mythical creatures - Harpy's. Gwen and her sisters, all deliciously dangerous and set our Lords on edge by the speed at which they can move and how blood thirsty they are.
I didn't feel as much empathy for Gwen as I did previous Lords love interest, she did annoy me a little bit with all her dithering between frightened and scared and then outright heoric. And there were times I want to shake her.
But the story over all is still brilliant as we learn so much more about the other Lords, and I love the developing story between Torin and cameo. And I have to wonder if the female Galen claims to have implanted Mistrust in has anything to to Sienna, for Paris sake let's hope so.
This is such an enjoyable series I await the next instalment with great anticipation!
