A tormented past has left Thane with an insatiable need for violence, making him the most dangerous assassin in the skies.
He lives by a single code: no mercy. And as he unleashes his
Book 3 of the Angels of the Dark series and 10.5 of the Lords of the Underworld. Paranormal, modern day romance. Best read as part of either series.
Thane rescues a slave from his enemies. He soon finds out she will change his life forever.
A dark and dramatic story of enemies, lovers, challenges and protectors.
Thane has issues from his past and I didn’t much like some of his actions. Elin takes a while to come into her own since her experience has been so horribl ...more
I’m literally out of words. I love Gena soooo much and her works never disappoint. Burning Dawn just became one of my favorite books. For real, this was one of her best books and ...more

“I told you. You own me. I'm yours. All that I have been. All that I am. All that I will ever be. Your happiness is mine. Your fury is mine. And your needs will be met before mine. I love you, and to me, that means placing you first and giving to you what I will never give to another. Power over me.”
Considering how much I love this series, this time i can only say this: Could have been better. I had high expectations of this book. What I love the most i ...more
Showalter’s writing ensures that Thane and Elin are wonderfully constructed characters, their chemistry intense and sizzling off the page. Elin is such fun once she comes into her own, and Thane oh boy – they are together and individually fab. This third book in the series, has depth and emotion. I was drawn in from the get go ...more
What a fun read! This was such a coming home for me. I needed a good PR book to whet my appetite after not having any luck the past few months and this worked. I felt the writing and overall tone was a big step up from Gena's recent work. This wasn't perfect and there were a few things that I had problems with but I couldn't put this down and found myself absorbed a good 85% of the story.
What I loved:
Can you blame me? The sexy time was off the charts. ...more
I am gonna be honest,due to the mixed reviews to "Burning Dawn" the third book in the "Angels of the Dark"-series (also related to "Lords of the Underworld") i wasn`t that excited to read this ...more
Oh. Oh my. Oh wow. OH WOW !
Violence and tenderness. Pain and solace. Revenge and forgiveness. Guilt and redemption. Hate and love. What an extraordinary voyage in a meticulously crafted world, rich, detailed; breathtaking. Multifaceted, complex characters you hate, love, respect, despise, who will take you for the ride of your life. I hadn't read the previous books in the series (but now I will!), and I wasn't lost. I was hooked from page one ! I have to admit to my shallowness: the fabulous cov ...more

We have some...
Yeah...Insta-lust/love is the name of the game. Been there, done that. Still I can easily forgive it since I kind of like it.
The heroine at the beginning was a wreck of insecurities and fears but she develops into a badass. I didn't like her at the beginning but I liked her in the end.
The hero was ...more
Burning Dawn is the last book in the Angels of the Dark trilogy although this trilogy is connected to the Lords of the Underworld series. Gena Showalter is a queen when it comes to writing intense paranormal worlds and I have loved reading this trilogy with these warrior angels (which are some of my favorite type of heroe's) and this BOOK ....whew it will blow your expectations away because I know it did mine. The previous books ...more
Another great story from one of my favourite paranormal romance writers, Gena freaking Showalter!
I swear this woman is awesome. Can't wait for her next works, especially Torin's and William's books in the Lords of the Underworld series and Bjorn's and Xerxes's in this one!
That being said, I must admit this book wasn't between my favourites.
In order for me to have a blast while reading a book, I need awesome characters and world-shattering angst. I didn't get that.
The angst wasn't that...angsty ...more
I tried to like Thane,
I really did but could not bring myself to like him.
I did not care how pretty he is or that he has dimples.
He is a Barbaric Man-Whore as well as being a Hypocrite,
ex. having people thrown off of the roof and having hands removed,
But its ok for him to pick up a Blond whenever the mood strikes him..
Elin was ok as the main female character but the overall story and the emotions felt lop-sided or rather one-sided.
Sorry didn't like this book as much as I wanted to.
I w ...more
Thane is captured by the seductive Phoenix named Kendra. In the last book, Beauty Awakened, she said she poisoned him with her body and soon he will only want sex from her. Elin is a part of Kendras camp as a slave herself, and frees Thane thinking he will rescue her in the process. This book is basically about Thane wanting revenge on the Phoenix and soothing his past demons, ...more
I have read every single LOTU book (but the last one on Torin) and everything in between.
AND what have you done to Thane, Ms. Showalter? Please, tell me it wasn't you who wrote such a... "bad fan-fiction". I was bored and frustrated by the lack of communication and misunderstand between Thane and Elin.
I was expecting more, much more. :-(
I don't know what is happening to my fave authors as they release their books quicker, their writing gets worse and worse.
Authors don't have to release a b ...more
3 starts for the story. It was really interesting at the beginning but near the end i lost interest in it.
1 extra star for the dark prince, Xerxes, and Andrian. As usual i fell in love with the wrong the wrong people again. Give me their books already!
1 less star.. because i didn't like the idea of people li ...more
I liked the first book fairly well - it was a fun little romp. The second was okay. But this third one... I don't know, I had a hard time getting into it. The female lead was just so... dumb and ditzy, enough that I couldn't figure out for the life of me why Thane was into her. And, too, there were so, so many parts that were downright corny. I cringed too many times to count. It made it hard to enjoy.
Some laugh out loud moments and even ones that brought tears to my eyes. Great book!
The dialogue between Thane and his two friends as well as be ...more

There was also a lot more snark/sassy humour in this book, that I don't remember from the others, and for me, it didn't work. I think if the three Angels ...more
