Publisher's Summary

She has tempted many men...but never found her equal.

Until now.

Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death - a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining....

Don't miss the other books in the Lords of the Underworld series.

    "And On And On with the same lusting"

    I loved book one but book two is the same thing all through the first half. do not know if I will even bother to read part 2. it is about 2 people who are constant lusting for each others body but never gived in to the lust on and on...so boring I could scream. Looking for something better. Money wasted on this one for sure.
    I hardly ever write a review but had to on this boring part 2. Liz

    "Funny and witty - want more"

    Anya makes me laugh. The narrator does an excellent job on portraying the Lords and makes the book extremely steamy and sexy. Can’t wait to hear more from Showalter

    "Great Book!"

    I'm completely hooked on this series after this book! The Darkest Night was great and this was a great follow up - I love how Showalter intertwines one book to the next. My only semi-negative comment would be that as much as I like Max Bellmore's voice for each of these books, I wish Anya's voice wasn't quite so whiny. Then again, that does fit with some of her personality so it's not anything I felt took away from the book.

    "What a disappointment."

    Save your credit. Chapter one was average and I'm not quite sure what happens after that. A lot of wasted "me tarzan - you jane" conversation between Anya and Lucien that desperately tries to be hot and steamy but lays a big egg. I was hopeful for Paris' character but that too drifts off into la-la land. Poorly developed characters and plots. Was looking forward to reading this author but won't be reading anything further.

    "good series"

    I really liked Anya and Lucien's story. He is such a tortured soul, but Anya just makes him sizzle. She is such a riot. You can't help but like her. She is full of fun and mischief. If you like LOTU, this is a must have.

    "The best one yet"

    This book is wonderful. I truly felt for both Lucien and Anya, for what they have to go through - Lucian and the other demon possessed warriors are on the hunt for Pandora's box if others find it they are doomed. Now Cronos, leader of the Titans, has ordered Lucian to take Anya's soul and Lucian must fight the attraction that burns between him and the goddess.
    I loved this book, book 1 was a good read but it was hard to belive that they fell in love within two days, with this book it spands over 3 weeks making it more believable and is just so darn good, action, adventure, love, romantance,great characters, what more could you ask for !! VERY enjoyable listen!

    "Left me anticipating for more"

    This whole series is worth listening to. The narration is great and the individual characters very appealing. Not your sterotype "Demon" book.

    "Excellent entertainment"

    My review of book one was only three stars. I wish I could have a redo on that.
    After book two I am hooked. I even love the reader! Very well written and fun. Thanks Gena, you are a great author.
