BTW, masih bingung antara beda film sama bukunya. Soalnya filmnya ada beberapa adegan yang ga ditranslate sih. Mungkin bagian - bagian yang dianggap bid'ah kali ya.
Terlepas dari kontroversinya, suka The Da Vinci Code karena intrigue, suspense dan juga beberapa pengetahuan yang ada di dalamnya. Baik historis maupun agamis. Cuma memang harus open minded pas baca ini, dan menganggapnya hanya literatur fiksi biasa (walo dibilang berdasarkan fakta2, gw mah ga percaya, hehehe)(less)

Tapi berhubung pas itu aku ga gitu ngeh, akhirnya yah cuek - cuek aja :P Emang ternyata beneran kayak LOTR ya, such as :
- Eragon : Aragorn dengan sifat dan tampang seperti Frodo (tinggal di mix aja deh #hammer) - Arya : perpaduan Arwen dan Eowyn (Arwen kan di LOTR ga terlalu terliat ass kickingnya) - Brom : seperti Gandalf. - Shade : kayak Saruman, maybe. Mungkin lebih tepatnya kayak Witch King of Angmar. - Galbatorix : Sauron Sayang ga ada kembarannya Gimli ma Legolas :))
Ada kurcacinya, elfnya. Tambahannya paling naga doang. Lah jelas buanget gitu miripnya, wkwkwkwkwk. Tapi waktu itu baca ini karena penasaran mau liat filmnya. Dan amazed pas tau Paolini bikin ini pas umurnya 15 tahun :O. Bukunya sih bagus, tapi filmnya bikin ilfeel beraaaaaaat. Seandainya diremake, mau deh nonton lagi. (less)

Kalau dipikir - pikir, heran kenapa banyak yang suka Twilight. Padahal bukunya yang setebal bantal itu, jauh lebih membosankan dari buku - buku sejenis macam Harry Potter dan Eragon. Walaaah, bahkan The Hunger Games sama Bartimaeus Trilogy aja yang lebih tipis, malah lebih kaya dan padat ceritanya.
Kalo dibilang romance itu genre menye-menye, gw ga setuju. Menurutku Bella adalah The Most Menye - Menye Characters. Pemujaan buta Bella sama Edward benernya juga mencerminkan remaja ababil masa kini yang begitu buta dalam memuja idola mereka. Dan Edward yang sempurna? Weleh, kalo dipikir sekali lagi sempurna dari mana yah? :/ Kalau sempurna itu berarti manjat jendela dan menyelinap ke kamar gadis yang (katanya) kau cintai,ya itu bukan sempurna. Serem euy!! Sebanding sama adegan yang di Paranormal Activity!! *ngakaks*
Terlanjut kasih rating 3, yah sudahlah :D
Dan semoga para fans Twilight yang begitu memuja - muja serial ini sekarang, tidak meringis dan bertanya "kenapa dulu aku begitu suka Twilight ya?" hihihihihih! (less)

Maddox is Keeper of Violence. One of many demons that has released from Pandora Box long years ago. He with his 5 other friends (Lucien, Reyes, Aeron, Paris & Torin), live in Fortress at Budapest, Hungaria. Live in peace, although he must struggle with his demon and his curse. Until he meet with this mortal, Ashlyn Darrow
Ashlyn Darrow is special, she has ability to hear people conversation in the past. But she dont like her abilities, and go to Budapest with hope she can avoid it. And then she meet Maddox, and become attrached to him . Maddox think she is a Bait (women that lure the Lords and give them to Hunter, their eternal foe), but he cant help his feeling to Ashlyn too.
Unfortunately, the enemy come closer, and then Maddox and his friends reunited again with their friend from Greece (Sabin,Gideon, Strider, Amun, Kane & Cameo), that have part for thousand years ago and the war between Hunter and Lords begin. Its worse that Maddox still have to face his curse, and Ashlyn has a way to remove his curse, but she must pay it with high price..
This is the first book i read from Gena Showalter. More better than The Darkest Fire, the prequel in this series. Like how Gena paired Maddox with Ashlyn. Maddox is full of violence then he has gentle side,he treat Ashlyn well. Ashlyn is look weak for the start, but she become though afterward.
The good side that i like from this series is Gena can make 12 lords that have a unique demon and personalities, cant wait for she to tell their story ^^. The mythology is fresh too, we know that Pandora has open the Pandora Box but in LOTU, Gena make Pandora is guarding the box, and the Lords opened it. Really2 interesting ^^. Really like about the last part in Darkest Night (and i tell you i cry about it). What is this part that i've say? Just read it, lol... (less)

Aeron, once an immortal guard of Zeus, the King of The Greeks God, that someday envy make him help his brethren to open Pandora Box, and released many dangerous demons to the world. He cursed by one of the demon, become host of Wrath. Everyday he forced to punish the wrongdoers, until he meet his baby daughter, Legion, the demon minion, that calm Wrath. But, a few days later, he feel the presence behind him, that watch him, make his Legion run away. Curious about that, he try to search it and then meet his downfall..
Olivia, the angel, a joy-bringer then make a warrior and signed by One True Deity to kill Aeron. But she cant help her amusement to Aeron, cant do her job, and because of that she choose to Fallen, fall straight to hell, her wings stripped and she become weak as human had. Its all to meet Aeron, to know the feeling to have fun and love someone...
But,Aeron despised her first, and then torn between Olivia and Legion, cause Legion cant stand near Angel. It become worse, that there appear a new entity, a news that there are great powers that help Hunter to againts The Lords, Legion's act that frustated Aeron, The Dark Prince confrontation, threat from Olivia's mentor Lysander and for the worse, Aeron's feeling to Olivia. He cant resist her, as that when he realized his love to Olivia, Aeron knows that he will lose everything he had...
Again, Miss Gena Showalter not dissapoint me ^^ This book is GREAT!! I dont hesitate to give 5 stars >.< (and + 5 too, so 10 stars, but GR just have 5 stars ^^) The story more intriguing than the last, the plot thicken. The story development open the chance that Lords of The Underworld is the worth to read series. There are some development for some characters and appearance of new characters that make we guessing what will happen next, and maybe will make us frustated too, to wait their story.^^ Some people said that the ending like just cut in, not tell the story of others, just tell Olivia-Aeron after they unite again . But I don't think so, cause its a good ending ^^. Its make we want to read the next book to know what happen next :) Things that make me irritated and laughing at the same time is when read Aeron-Olivia love scene. I just want to say TMI. To Much Interruption, lol. Miss Gena is tortured them (and us) a lot :D Like how, again, Miss Gena can pairing her hero and heroine well.
And dont forget to read the next installment in this series, The Darkest Lie, coming out in the end of June. Tell the story of Gideon, Keeper of Lies with his mate Scarlet, Keeper of Nightmares (they first meet in The Darkest Passion) that claimed once she is his wife.
Once again, Gena Showalter not make me disappointed (2 thumbs up) I've read the 3 short stories ((The Darkest Fire, The Darkest Prison sama Amazon's Curse) in e-book version, so i skip it and read just the guide inside
And... Its soooo great and very funny. My favorite part is "At Home With Lords of The Underworld" Where William (Anya's BFF), interviewing The Lords. I like his interview with Lucien and Gideon (laugh so hard until my stomach hurt ^^)
And then my other favorite is At Round Table Women in LOTU speaks. Its great and i like interview between Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter. There are The Darkest Passion sneak peek. Make me cant wait to read
Overall : Great Book for Gena Showalter's fans especially Lords of The Underworld ^^(less)
