Seven books into Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series and the stories and characters are still so engaging. This story picks up with the consequences of Amun's trip into Hell. It didn't really advance the larger story arc of the quest for the artifacts that threads through this series, but that didn't really matter to me. I was enthralled with the history of both Amun and Haidee. Haidee is so compelling a heroine. I love that Showalter makes her women just as tough as the men. There are no weak, cowering Mary Janes to be found here. In fact Haidee, like many of the women in this series, is tougher than her mate. It is such a refreshing contrast to the way in which others, such as J.R. Ward, treat their females characters.

As a complete aside, the set up for the next novel has me so excited!
