Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she'd fall for a kind human who wouldn't rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora's box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love.
Don't miss the other books in the Lords of the Underworld series.

Another great listen from Max Bellmore, but I'm wondering if there a 5th book in this series as Gena Showalter kind of leaves you feeling that there more to come, like the lords are not finished doing what they need..... confusing.. but again listen to all 4, they are good...
Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers, so he swears off women only concentrating on fighing the hunters, until he mets Gwen, an immortal herself, who always thought she'd fall for a kind human who wouldn't rouse her darker side. Through each other they both learn to embrace their darker side and learn to trust each other and then love each other. this was one of the best books yet and I can not wait until the next book. I have to say that Max Bellmore is one of the best narrator's I have ever had the pleasure of listening too and he makes each character stand out on their own with their own voices. He even does the women's voices great. I really hope he continues to be the narrator for the rest of the books.
I am entranced by the struggles of each character and hooked on the story. This final book thus far has left me anxiously waiting for more. Highly recommend this series!
This is my favorite book in this series so far. They just keep getting better. And Max Bellmore has quickly become my favorite narrator. He really makes each character distinct. His pitch for the hero is perfect. Gives me the shivers! :) I hope he branches out and does more for Audible!
This is a great story and I love the sound of the narrator's voice, but there were just two things wrong with the audio. About three and a half hours through part one, you hear Max Bellmore say: "Sorry I'll do that last part again." And the editor gives him the go-ahead before he rereads the sentence. Same thing about three and a half hours through the second download. The editor suddenly says: "Just give me the end." And Bellmore agrees and redoes the sentence.
Not a big deal, I thought it was more funny than anything else. First time I heard it I laughed and listened to it again. I was just a bit shocked that this happened twice in the same audio book. I always thought someone listened to these all the way through before they were sent out.
But again, not a big deal, doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the book, which is a great story in an amazing series, and I still think Bellmore's voice is perfect for all the characters :)
Gena Showalter is a wonderful author and I recommend anything she writes. The Lords of the Underworld is an exceptional series and the stories of mythological beings is wonderful.
I love this series! I love that the characters are not isolated to a single book and the whole cast is there from one book to the next. My favorite was book 2, so far, but I am impatiently awaiting the next installment. I like that the story unfolds all over the world and none of the traditional capitals either. Know of any other romances that bring you to Antartica? This is Indiana Jones meets the Jewel of the Nile meets Jason Bourne meets Buffy or Lara Croft... I think... I like how they still have to deal with washing clothes and dishes, etc. I like the arc, or the base story, unfolds with each book as you discover every character's history. Also, they have chosen the best narrator for the job as he is able to produce the deep rumble of the alpha male greek demon we all wish for, but at the same time, he is able to have the voice of a girl, without sounding like a guy trying to sound like a girl. Good, good "read"!
I have listen to all four books and the tales, they all great and Max Bellmore is the perfect voice for these books. Thank you Gina & Max, love them.
I loved the book, but must agree with the other reviewers, it was a bit disconcerting to hear the retakes of the narrator in part 1 and part 2 of the book. If not for that, I would have given it a score of 5 stars.
