This was a very entertaining story in the LOTU world. Even though we get a glimpse of Reyes and Danika at the beginning, it is only to give us an insight into what is happening in Cronus's side.
Atlas was held captive many years ago, and had tried to seduce all female guards to get someone to release him. Except even then, one of them had been special to him. It wasn't the prettiest girl of the bunch, no, it was Nike, with all her strength, and the way sh...more
This opens with the reunion of Atlas, Titan god of Strength and Nike, Greek goddess of Strength: "His godly counterpart. His enemy. And an all-around grade-A bitch." Atlas had once seduced Nike into freeing him from prison -- now she's his prisoner. Nike had carved her name into Atlas after discovering he had also seduced three other female guards, now he's retu...more
We are then whisked to Tartarus, the prison of the gods,...more
For the God and Goddess of Strength. Very cool little novella takes place in the Prison in Tartarus where first Atlas had been imprisoned before the Greeks had been defeated by the Titans now his old flame (well kind of) Goddess Nike it being held in the same Prison as a Greek Goddess this was were they were now kept. One thing I can say for Miss Nike is she doesn't take any crap not that you'd expect the Goddess of Strength to but a Goddness you think beauty or at least I do......more
Nike, although the Greek Goddess of Strength, is still a character we mere "humans" can relate to. She has her share of insecurities, and it was endearing how Atlas' perception of her changed as the book progressed. 5 Stars for good plot and great characters!
As it turns out, Atlas and Nike like to go for more than throats. *wink wink* Yep, those two can't seem to keep their hands to themselves. Well, they *can* keep their hands to themselves. But they don't want to. And they ha...more
So Nike was once the prison guard of Atlas and gave him a tattoo of "Nike". Now their positions have changed and Atlas is Nike's prison guard and he gives her an "Atlas" tattoo as revenge. But, they are...more
Lords of the Underworld is one of my favorite PNR series. When I started it, I did not know about the short novellas between some of the books. The Darkest Prison is the first novella right after Reyes and Danika's story in The Darkest Pleasure (they have a cameo at the very beginning actually). The book follows Atlas and Nike, god and goddess of Strength. The way it starts really has you ques...more

I can't. I just can't. Gina's sinking her claws further into me with every God damned book!
*Growls in frustration*
Altas, Titan God of Strength, is a sex-ay mofo that is finally free of Tartarus and in control of the jail once more. He tried to escape before by seducing Nike Greek Goddess of Strength. Her and every other female jailor -_- Typical, idiot male, he was in love with her but was single-minded on getting free so screwed her over anyway.
Both fight the attraction, first while Atlas is imprisoned under the Greeks where Nike is his Prison Ward, and then in complete opposite, when the Titans overthrow the Greeks, Nike is imprisoned under Atlas' guard.
But, oh the power of love can't withstand those prison bars.
Happy ending? It's insinuated, though I hope that...more

When she realized that she had, indeed, been used she'd marked him permanently, with her name on his chest.

I did like the chemistry between Nike and Atlas. I felt bad for them, I just wanted them to be happy. Anyway, it's hard to write a review that's not a synopsis because it's so short.
I do tire of the Sienna drama though. I think it is getting old. Honestly, I don't even feel like she's a real threat. Technically, she shouldn't even be in the picture for at least another few centuries. The Lords ha...more
The Darkest Prison is a short novella that is part of Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series.
This novella tells the story of Atlas, the Titan god of Strength, and Nike, the Greek goddess of Strength and Victory.

Some things that have unfolded from the beginning of the Lords of the Underworld series was the fact that the Titan gods have taken over the heavens from the Greek gods. For centuries the Greeks had ruled while they had kept the Titans prisoner. Recently that has all changed when the Titans were able to free themselves and battle to power. The two in this story have had their roles reversed due to this power switch and it was a very interesting read.
This fun novell...more
I actually quite like the Lords of the Underworld series so I do feel a bit mean for giving it only one star, but I really did not like this.
I have to be in the right kind of mood for Paranormal Romance as a general rule. In the mood for having even the simplest of plot lines spoon fed to me like a three year old. In the mood to roll my eyes so many times per minute at the cheesy dialogue and predictable plot devices to make people wonder if I'm having some kind of seizure.
Basically I re...more
When the Titans were held captive by the Greeks, Atlas seduced his way out of prison, and Nike was one of many that he tried his wiles on. But she fell for it, hated him for it, and had her name tattooed into him for revenge.
Now the tables are turned, and the Greeks are in captivity. Atlas is Nike's Jailo...more

While predictable, Ms. Showalter writes yet another beautiful story of unlikely lovers fated to be together. I must admit I tire of the soul-mate theme so common in Showalter's books. But I still enjoy her writing and her romances from beginning to end.
I'm excited to continue with this series!
Her novels have appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine, and Seventeen Magazine, and have been transl...more
