Synopsis:

She has tempted many men...but never found her equal. Until now.
Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining...

My Thoughts:

Man, do I love Lucien and Anya as a couple. They both overcame a lot to be together. I was wondering how they would do it. Talk about sacrifices.

Both of them had serious issues they've been dealing with for nearly all of their existences. But they worked out together. After meeting Lucien in book one, I never would have guessed that he could be so passionate and on fire. He'd always been in so much control of himself. But Anya makes him break loose and not hold back. I loved that she could bring that out of him.

Of course, things aren't all roses for them the entire time considering they literally tried to kill each other. Granted, circumstances made that what it was. I was glad when Lucien decided to fight it, even if it left his friends in possible danger from Cronus. Still, Anya and Lucien are smoking hot together. Considering that they hadn't gone all the way until the very near end of the book, everything else they did in bed was quite sexy.

I also continued to enjoy the ongoing storyline. The Lords are searching for Pandora's box and in this book, they finally learn more about what direction they should search in. They even score a victory on the way thanks to Anya and Lucien, but not everyone escapes the searching unscathed.

My heart broke for Paris. Despite what Sienna did, he couldn't seem to help himself around her. This was even more amazing to me because she seemed to be his one. But then THAT happened. I've seen plenty of spoilers about this series due to posting around various groups here on GR, but I don't remember hearing about that. I certainly hadn't realized that he met her so early in the series. Now I really want to know how things will turn out for him. He seems to be so sad now. Poor guy.

And then there's Reyes. He's been unable to forget Danika or stop worrying about her. And when what he's always known would happen does indeed happen, he sets off to save her. I knew that he would fight, but it still sucks to see him have to fight someone who is like a brother to him. I'm desperate to know what the hell happened with that.

Man, I'm loving this series.
