Publisher's Summary

As the dark Lord who condemns souls to damnation in the Abyss, Micah is nothing but a feared monster wrapped in impenetrable black armor. He has no idea he is the last heir of Elden, its last hope. Only one woman knows: the daughter of his enemy.

Liliana is nothing like her father, the Blood Sorcerer who’d cursed Micah. She sees past Micah’s armor to the prince inside. A prince whose sinful touch she craves. But first she has to brave his dark, dangerous lair and help him remember. Because they only have till midnight to save Elden.

    "They saved the best for the end"

    Nalini Singh is one of my favorite authors and this one is one of her best works. Of the 4 books, this is my favorite and it is a great ending to the overall story line. A great twist to beauty and the beast and neither are who you might think they are. Some of the more interesting support creatures I've seen in a long time. Makes me wonder about their storys and hope to see more on them.

    Story
    "i enjoyed"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lord of the Abyss to be better than the print version?

    it is a toss up. somethings were noticed while listening that i did not notice while reading and vice versa. they were both very good


    What did you like best about this story?

    the whole story was a little different from many of the other paranormal reads/listens. It kept my interest by moving.


    What does Isabelle Gordon bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    the voice did not sound flat as if she was just reading out loud.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no particular moment that i remember, but it has been a while since i listened to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    as this book was the last in what you would call a series, i was disappointed that the brothers and sister from prior books were not more evident in the retake of the castle, what their actions were. But like i said the book was well done and as a stand alone book, you would not think that much about the other siblings. In the end, the author did let you know what the other siblings ended up doing with their lives after the castle was retaken which was good. If you like paranormal and are getting a little jaded on the normal were animals, vampires, shape shifters, etc., this will be a refreshing change with suspense filled moments but a sweetness portrayed in the characters too. Try it, i liked it.

    "Finally the wonderful end of this series"

    I was so looking forward to finding out the ending of this story. It fulfilled all my expectations. Nalini Singh is a wonderful story weaver. I anticipate more wonderful books in the future.

    Story
    "Not her best."

    First, you should know that this is the last book in a series, and the other books aren't available as audio books. I probably wouldn't have downloaded it without reading the other books if I had known that, but it didn't become evident until the end when you find out his siblings are mated.

    Second, the story has a great plot and I like the main characters as well as the side characters. But there are some pacing issues. The first half of the book has a good pace, and then about a fourth of the book is a series of sex scenes with no real plot advancements, and then the last quarter of the book is back to having a good pace.

    Not that I object to the smoking hot love scenes, but 2 hours out of an 8 hour book, especially when they're one right after another, is a bit much. After a while, my reaction to the sex was just "yawn". At least some of them needed to be edited out or seriously shortened so that the plot would move a little. Good book but not up to Singh's usual standards.

    Story
    "What a wonderful concept!!!"

    Four books, four different writers, same storyline. You'd think it just wouldn't work but darn it, it was good!! It's pretty much impossible to tell who wrote what and the flow of the story is totally continuous. Great little bit of escapism and well worth the credits...

    "No Sci-Fi & Fantasy just really bad Porn"
    What would have made Lord of the Abyss better?

    57 ways to repeatedly say,


    What could Nalini Singh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nalini Singh should read ANY Margaret Weis or Brent Weeks book to see what Sci-Fi or Fantasy story looks like.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Isabelle Gordon?

    The Narrator got a low rating due to the poor material she had to work with. The greatest narrator in history would have her/his career destroyed after recording this trash.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were no redeeming qualities to this book that suggest any talent for writting in the Sci-Fi or Fantasy genre.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first and last Nalini Singh book.
