Recommended for: LOTU fans!!
Read from June 01 to 03, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 1

More than 5 stars and Top Read 2012.

Another must read for Lords of The Underworld fans. And for you who dying to read Paris's story. Wonder if he finally find his ladylove that manage to make his hard twice, but then die and Cronus ressurect and make her Keeper of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone. And being faithful. Commitment and Paris. Two words that against each other.

Gena put S to SUPERB and this book is epic. With capital E. Once again she prove the reasons why she will always be my favorite authors. The ending make me wonder if her new series Angel of The Dark with the first book Wicked Nights coming in the end of June (woohoo!!) is the bridge for the new arc of Lords of The Underworld saga. Either way, I can't wait to read her new installment.

And Paris of course officially become one of my nom-nom boyfriends ;)


Read my review below for the cover :) (yeah I do review for the cover too, not just the story, LOL!)

UPDATE :
Alright! Gena already announced it in her web so the cover and the blurb are OFFICIAL!!



PRETTTEEEHHH!! :P

My thought about this :
- I'm glad Paris paired with Sienna, not to another chick. I'm almost afraid if Gena will make new heroine for Paris, and I think its not the best turn ever. Readers will mad, trust me =P (Gena mention she plan to make another heroine for Paris in her blog, but glad Paris so stubborn to have Sienna. WTG, Paris!!)

- Sienna..look sexy! I know she look usual and homey, not attractive when she first appear at Lucien's book, The Darkest Kiss. But look at her now, possessed by Wrath (no spoiler here, if you are LOTU fans), she will make one of sexy winged heroine ever. Of course she might have a better personalities to make readers love her.

- Paris...ummm, I'm a little bit disappointed to not see Paul Marron here, but *cough2* models cover not just him, right? Not so favorite for this version of Paris. They do his hair wrong! His hair is several different colors, like brown, bronze, and gold (thanks for Jen from RedHotBooks for the head up). Its more like dark brown, IMO. (or they can't captured his hair color?) And his chin not chiseled enough. But the rest are pretty well-done..

- Something that bugged me, why both of them wear jeans?? I can understand about Sienna, but Paris? Are hero in PNR and UF genre supposed to wear leather pants, long black coats, and long hair, sooo pretty, it can be the result from H*rbal Essence shampoo?? => forgive me for my addictive to PNR..and no, I don't like men with long hair...

- Paris's butterfly tattoo are wrong. Its not located at his upper arm but his lower back (thanks to Megan for tell me about this).. Maybe because the model pose are hug Sienna like that, and they don't want miss the tattoo, so the solution are like that. Huh, boo! =(

- Paris are Keeper of Promiscuity who need sex in regular basis to survive. But I doubt this book will have so many sex scenes or Sienna and Paris act like busy bunnies. We don't want this book turn to be erotica, right? (Not that I'm complaining, tho =P)

The last words... THIS IS THE BEST COVER AT LOTU AND I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THEIR STORY!!! BRING IT ON, GENA!! =D

Hbeebti Whi do you think it is?


message 2: by Ren (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ren Its between Narcissism or Sienna , but I hope Paris's heroine is Sienna :)


Ollie I really hope it is Narcissism but I can't stand Sienna and just think everything about her is the wrong fit and the wrong reason for Paris to like her and want her.


message 4: by Ren (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ren Its Sienna. I just found the blurb and cover. Not sure if its official yet, but I love the couple cover! And the black background too.

Ollie, if I can choose between Narcissism and Sienna, I will choose Sienna.It will be a waste if Paris will be paired with someone else, while its clear he and Sienna have connection since Lucien's book. And Sienna too the reason Paris choose to freed Aeron from his madness..


Trish The cover is awesome!! For some reason I am having trouble with remembering Narcissism- but I liked Sienna's character in past books. I hate it when a character slips my mind.

Yeah, very! Even they do Paris's hair wrong! He's blonde! :(

Megan Riverina Romantics/Meggerfly I have the LOTU as ebooks but because I Love Gena so much I want them in print as well. If I'm short on $ I just get the print version. I bought Maddox as a special edition hard cover and now all of my Lords books have to be the same way LOL. The special edition is on backorder from the company that I buy them from. Do you get your books from the Book Depository?

Yes, the cheapest way for me to buy books! Especially new releases.
If I want buy book that already released 1-2 months ago, usually I go to Periplus or Kinokuniya. That place kinda like Borders or Barness and Noble. But will make you have nerdgasm! :P


Darla Man that last book was NOT my favorite either! I love all the Lords, but Strider and that harpy chick were not my favorite subjects to read about! It was painful and time consuming to finish, but not bad overall(once I was thru!)


message 26: by Ren (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ren Hi Darla, sorry just see your comment :(. Yeah, for me "The Darkest Surrender" is never exist. LOL,maybe I sound to harsh, but read that book is such a torture for me too. So glad I love Paris's book, and make me to love this series again :)


message 27: by Sara (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sara Hi. Just read about Paris and now starting Strider. It's just how it worked out. So, so far I've liked them all, and I know I will like this one ...just cuz I like Bianka's wickedness and compassion.


message 28: by Ren (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ren Hi, Sara :). Glad you enjoy Strider's :). I'm just a few people that don't like Kaia, lol! But to be honest, Bianka is better than Kaia, tho.


Darla Hey Ren its never too late to comment!! Especially when we are in agreement regarding that darn book and that crazy mouthy pain the the arse harpy! LOL!!
