The time has come for Gabriel to claim his underworld. Accompanied by the deceptive Dark One, he risks everything to find his mate and take his place as the deity Death.

Between him and the only woman he’s ever loved: a handful of rebelling death dealers, the deity Karma and the Dark One’s mate, a human-turned-demon who holds his soul in the palm of her hand.

Gabriel needs to set things right in his Underworld before he can save his mate. His journey to the palace is not an easy one and he finds out soon enough that his world needs him. Will he find past-Death? Will he finally accept what he has been

For being the Dark One and not having any feelings he sure is angry his woman his missing, "my mate is newly blood bound. She will weaken quickly," growled the Dark One. "She doesn't have more than three days." Gabriel I missed him and I think the boy is coming around to his woman as well, "that's...good," he managed. She went to sheathe the blade and dropped it, point down, on the floor. "Oh, gods, woman, be careful with that s***," he grumbled." I love how Darkyn shows his affection, "he pulle ...more

2.5 stars.

I enjoyed the book's first half, maybe even a bit more than half, despite the agonizingly slow progressing.
It was nice to see some new faces—Karma—and both Deidres working together.

The built-up engulfed preparations and entanglements from 3/4 of the story and I was patiently waiting for a tumultuous ending, but when it finally unravelled it wasn't all that. Heck, it was pitiful.

Also, what happened to Darkyn and how things resolved was not to my liking...

These books aren't the most amazing series out there...and by that I compare to "Daughter of Smoke and Bone", or the immortal instruments series, but they are an awesome read of Gods, Goddesses, and Deities.a world where humans get caught up in the games that Death, Fate, the Dark One, Peace, and Karma play, and as deities get introduced the story grows. There is family deceptions, love, hate, torture and death...it's definitely kept my interest over the last few years, and I'm excited for the n ...more

So excited for the next book in this series! My only hope is a lack of the relationship between Gabe and past death! I get that this was all about them but I am still not feeling the love for them after the way my girl Diedre was treated! In this book Gabe needs to fix what has gone wrong in his Underworld and to fix the damage Harmony has caused and to save his mate (he really never cares much about human Diedre) and Darkyn's mate he is going to need the help of Darkyn, Ryn & Andre!

I devoured this book. I just couldn't wait to find out what the heck Gabriel was going to do to get back his domain, and of course, rescue the Deirdres. I figured it was going to be a bit surprising given Darkyn was with him, but have to admit, I didn't expect some of the twists this book delivered.

After returning to the Underworld, Gabe learns that more than 75% of his people betrayed him and aligned themselves with Harmony. On top of that, he still isn't able to access his magic and believes t

Time is running out for Deidre, Darkyn and past-Death. Gabriel still has to figure out how he is failing his underworld. All of our favorite characters pop in and out of this story. The badass's turn soft and the soft go hard-core. Most all of the crew will surprise you at some point in time. This is a great action filled read. The emotions have depth as all are faced with a situation where things can go fatally wrong. This is a great read and a little longer length. It took a couple of days for ...more

This book was one that I just could not put down. The action and seeing how some of the loose ends were going to be completed or not kept me completely on edge. Truly to the point on not wanting to put the book down.

I think I had to charge my kindle during it as well. But no matter. Lizzy certainly knows how to make her characters grow and at times search themselves. That is never easy for any of us.

This has been a great read with a well thought out story arch introducing new ones through hinta

This book does a fantastic job of picking up right where Darkyn's Mate left off. The book mostly takes place within Death's realm, Underworld. After past-Death Deidre left a mess of things with her shifty deals, Gabe is left at a loss for how to take control of his world. After being locked out of the realm, he finally manages to enter only to find that Harmony -- once a fellow co-worker for past-Death -- has control of most Death-Dealers and few are still loyal to him. As her learns to have the ...more

Really enjoyed it. This series gets better and better. I cannot wait to see where else this series will go.
The characters grow even more. This book draws you in especially with last books cliff hanger. Not as big a cliff hanger this time but still want to know the answers to questions that popped up at the end. I also enjoyed the little peaks of other stories such as Ryan and Katie. I love that this was based on Gabriel mostly he is one of my favorites.

Oh, my God! Yes! Oh, my God! This is the living end! (pun intended). All of our characters that we have come to love so well are figuring themselves out. The love is working out. And then all Hell breaks loose! That's all I'm going to say. I don't want to give any spoilers away because this is such an awesome read that you've just got to read it for yourself.

The Rhyn Eternal series is one of the best paranormal series I have read. There’s no way to read this series and not fall in love with author Lizzy Ford for creating an amazing story and her characters because well hell, they are just freaking fantastic. Lizzy has a way of even making Death look good. I loved this book; especially the back and forth between Fate, Gabriel and Darkyn.

Lizzy Ford is a paranormal master. The Underworld was a pure absolute paranormal perfection. Of the Rhyn Eternal series this one was my favorite. When you have Demon, Deities, and Immortals on the brink of waging war against each other how can things go wrong. Easy throw in the pesky human woman decided to get the ball rolling on these chain of events. The Underworld was insane to read because as soon as I thought I had it figured out somebody had a new deal going. This book was just awesome and ...more

Once again Lizzy Ford gave us another amazing book. I am pretty sure that when we realize the switch, all of us wanted to lynch Lizzy, but after reading The Underworld I realized the why.... then entire series is about balance, finding the person that will ground you. For Darkyn that person was Deidre, and for Gabriel was Past-Death or the original Deidre. The message is so simple that it becomes complicate, for Gabriel and Darkyn was balance and to be men enough to agknowledge that without it a ...more

I am not great at writing perfect reviews so all I will say is I loved it. I highly recommend Lizzy as an author. I haven't come across any of her books that I would give anything less than 5 stars. I love this series so much and I like that each book goes into specific characters so you get a well rounded incite into each one of them. I you like Black Dagger Brotherhood series you will love this. Highly recommended.

The Underworld, Ryhn Eternal #4 by Lizzy Ford
5 stars

I loved how both Deidre and past-death Deidre had to learn, evolve and grow into their new roles and new lives. The each also grew a lot in how they learned to have relationships with their mates.
Gabriel and Darkyn provided both humor and struggles as they learned to properly protect and love their mates.
I liked the challenges they all faced, and continue to love how Lizzy wrote these characters!

I was anxious for this book to come out and hated the wait but it was well worth it. The Underworld picked up where the last book left off.
Each of the character's relationships grew stronger and I loved the development. I enjoyed the journey that Gabriel, past-death and Deidre went on throughout the book to discover who and what they are.
I was hook from page one getting pulled in with the action and suspense. I can't wait for the next book as the journey continues!

So, I definitely missed the memo when this came out!!!! I re-read the entire series, beginning with the Rhyn Trilogy and then the first three Rhyn Eternal. This one? OMG! I'm not sure I can wait until July for book #5 on the Eternal series. Mr "Checkmate" may just be my favorite character, aside from Rhyn, of course!

The Underworld by Lizzy Ford is book 4 in the Ryn Eternal series. I am not sure how I managed to read this one out of order, but it was equally as thrilling as all the others. The characters are written perfectly. As the title says, this story line is based in the Underworld, so it is darker and deeper that the other books. But Ford still manages to give a chuckle and an HEA.

I really liked how the underworld turned out. Gabriel got his past-Deirdre. And the dark he got his little sex vixen. This story was good. Kept me interested. Loved the little adventure for the lady's to show how strong they really are when proving them selfs.
