Heart of Darkness

This book has three stories by three great authors. The authors excel in paranormal romance. Gena Showalter, one of the authors is the reason I bought the book. Showalter's books are excellent. If paranormal romance is what you're after then the "Lords of the Underworld" series is one of the best series you could ever read. Characters are amazing to follow from one book to another they grow on you. Start with (in order); The Darkest Fire, The Darkest Night,The Darkest Kiss,The Darkest Pleasure,The Darkest Whisper,The Darkest Passion,The Darkest Lie,Dark Beginnings,The Darkest Facts and ending with Into the Dark.
In this book SHowalter writes about a demon assassin,Lysander who is righteous and even a little judgmental of others. Then he meets a beautiful harpy, Bianka. Her father is Lucifer, and is tempted to act like he never has before. Its a fun afternoon read.

Sadly, a So-So Collection

Because this was an anthology, and I had such drastically different opninions on each story, I'm going to take them individually:

Because this was an anthology, and I had such drastically different opninions on each story, I'm going to take them individually:

Darkest Angel:
This was a weird story for me. Lysander is just a little too good and Bianka (a Harpy we first met in Darkest Whisper) is just a little too bad, and it makes for an almost unbelievable match. It's not until the end that we find out that they are neither as good nor as bad as they appear, and that they just might be meant for each other. While everything was just a bit over the top, it was fun to watch continuing struggle for dominance in the relationship. And then there's a scene with Lysander and Paris (host to the demon Promiscuity) in loin cloths, wrestling in oil, so it can't be all bad.

The really cool part about this story is that we are introduced to an angel, Olivia, who is going to be the female half of Aeron's story (The Darkest Passion, which will be released in May) and it set up a little of that story-line.

Love me to Death:
Another weird story for me. It's got soul mates, reincarnated lovers, shared dreams, a spirit's revenge, all of which is okay, and a plot twist you see coming a mile away. I think it tried to cover too much in too little space, and it took too long to get to the real meat of the story. Because of the soul-mate thing, Shayne didn't have to really build to relationship between Sara and David, which in a novella is probably okay. I didn't like or dislike it-I guess, in the end, it was just okay. It would have been better with less, or as a full-length novel that would have been able to better explore the story.

2 out of 5 stars

Lady of the Nile:
This one didn't really work for me. The plot was kind of convoluted. From what I could understand, a man occasionally possessed by a man possessed by an Egyptian god (nope, that's not a typo) must hook up with a woman occasionally possessed by an Egyptian goddess to defeat evil. There were a number of dream sequences/flashbacks that were confusing and I found myself having to re-read passages to understand what was going on at times. It was really disappointing to me because I usually enjoy Krinard's wolf stories.
