For more than six hundred years, Selene was a Death Dealer, a vampire warrior dedicated to the destruction of her people's savage enemies: the werewolves. But then she learned the shocking truth behind the ancient conflict and turned against her undead masters.

For all of his mortal life, Michael was an ordinary hum

This book was incredible! Like most of the the Underworld books I couldn't stop reading. This book is ten times better than the first book. Love Selene And Michael. I can't wait to read more of Greg's books. I hope he publishes more books than just 4 book.

I like to know what relationship trouble Selene and Michael will have. You tend to worry more about there survival than there love for one another. Even if you want to read more love between them, it all erases from ur memory when you read tha

This book shows some rocking girl power! It shows independence, and strength. Selene has power, she is tough, strong, independent, smart, logical, and all around awesome! *spoilers* She mostly shows her tough attitude, when Marcus is following them, and she takes out the police officers, and they are racing to find shelter, before the sun rises *end spoiler* This book, shows romance can come at the strangest, most unpredictable times, but can still seem sweet and innocent.

Selene has devoted her intire immortal existence to the extermination of the Lycans (werewolves). However when she discovers that everyhting that she thought to be true was a lie and that Victor, the "eldest" vampire of the covin had actually murdered her mortal family and balmed the lycans, the world she once knew is turned upside down.
Micheal never knew that there where such things as Vampires and werewolves until he is caught in the middle of the decade long war. He is turned into a lycan by,

This, the third book in the triology, brings the Underworld story to a conclusion. It's well written, the pacing is good throughout, and thankfully the characters are given more life here than in the movie. While I like the Underworld movies, and have read all three books, I'd have to plump for the books as being the better option. One reason for that is what I've stated previously, in that the book gives the characters more life--you get inside their heads and feel their emotions, something you ...more

I enjoyed the movie but this book adaption of it is terrible.

I bought this book as an impulse buy at an airport minutes before my flight was to depart. Surrounded by hacking coughs, screaming babies, and Sky Mall catalogs, I did my best to get into this novel. I failed.

I'm unsure if my dislike of this book stems from the author's simplistic writing style or the way he conveys the characters inner thoughts and emotions. Maybe I should just be thankful his brevity enabled me to read the book in
Amazing as predicted!!! Selene is fantastic as is Michael!!
I love reading these books because I find extra tidbits of information that I missed in the movie. For example: Marcus is a hybrid. I merely assumed he looked like that (batty) because he was the first vampire. It didn't click that Singe made Marcus a hybrid, for me, I thought just the human strand carried the gene. Also, if Marcus turned into a hybrid, why didn't William also change all those centuries ago when he consumed I innumerabl

This is about as good as a book about a movie can be. With the Underworld series I think this is the first time I've read books associated with movies that are written after the movies.
I really like the Underworld movies and I'm looking forward to the new one coming out in 1/09 even if Selene is not in it. Apparently there is another Underworld book that I haven't read yet that is not associated with either of the first two movies or the one coming out, it's a seperate story. I'll get around to

4/5 stars.

I am an Underworld Fan through and through and even though I found the 2nd movie lacking I still picked up the novel. Did not regret the decision. The 2nd book and movie both were lacking compared to the first but thats the case every time. Other than that the book was fast paced and I flew through it.

Recommends it for: Isobel Healy and her partner, Katherine
Underworld Evolution follows Seleen and Michael looking for the truth been Victor's lies. The fight werewolves and vampires, just to stay alive. Two Vampire leaders are dead.
The face Marcus Corvinus and his werewolf brother, William.
I'm not going to continue with these. Too much background history and not enough plot. For me, this was just a big bore.

My husband enjoyed it, and thought it was a pretty good follow-up to both the book and movie version of Underworld.
