Synopsis



At long last, New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter unveils the story of Paris, the darkest and most tormented Lord of the Underworld….

Possessed by the demon of Promiscuity, immortal warrior Paris is irresistibly seductive—but his potent allure comes at a terrible price. Every night he must bed someone new, or weaken and die. And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he'd thought was forever beyond his reach…until now.

Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet in Paris's arms, the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up.

Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally—or tear them apart?

Paris and Sienna turned out to be a couple that I can easily dismiss simply to get to the rest of the book.

All in all, this was not my favorite. But, it is a necessary read in order to continue the series, but it could have been a little shorter. It sometimes took pages in order to find out the answer to a character’s question. Lots of introspection...

The end was surprising and really unexpected, and I’m very happy about it. It was amazing how Gena combined the final turn with one of the most important paintings (i.e. incarnated visions) of Danika.

In this book, Paris is something more than what we have used to. He’s not just the sexy man, the wet dream for every woman. He’s a determined man, who knows what he wants and who will claim it no matter what everyone believes.
