** spoiler alert ** The fourth installment in the Lords of The Underworld series was a leap forward in both the storyline and the action I think. Not to mention the most intense sex scene of the series was in this book if you ask me -You know which one I'm talking about, it involves a forest and a pissed off Harpy in training who's nudged by a certain demon of Doubt, and I think somewhere in there there was also tearing of pants and pushing a Lord up against a tree. I'm a bit fuzzy on the details now.- I thought this one was full of surprises and brought the situation of the Lords onto a new level.

The book matched Sabin, the most aggressive of the Lords in my opinion, and the a true leader, with Gwen, a fierce Harpy who's yet to discover and learn not to fear her powers. I have to admit, it took me a while to get used to Gwen, even without Sabin's demon, Doubt, she already had a lot on her plate, she constantly doubted herself and her powers and she always thought of herself as a weakling among the family. Apparently Harpies are dangerous creatures, and we get a good couple of chances to see that throughout the book. Gwen is like a little girl who wants to be pampered but also she has a much darker side that needs to be feared which made her the perfect match for Sabin and his war-tolerant tough dark side. And the way she embraced her own dark side, thanks to the ever-so-happy-to-help Sabin, was nicely laid out. We also met her 3 sisters who I wanted to hate but ended up loving by the way. I kinda hope one of them ends up with Amun, cause I thought he was eyeing one of them during Gwen's tarinings but couldn't be sure which one. I like the idea of the quiet man with a fierce creature like those, not to mention they have the glittery skin that I envied while reading.

Sabin also had a dilemma of his own. The good, strong and non-compromising leader that he is, he was faced with the choice of war against love in this one. And even though I give Paris a hard time for struggling between Aeron and Sienna, I'm glad Sabin made his choice towards Gwen. Not that I had any doubts about it. Which brings me to my shock over the truth about Galen. I did not see that coming. And I'm not talking Gideon-talk. That was a surprise and I wonder how things'll go after this with Galen also knowing this. And I wonder who that woman in Danika's portrait with him. And what's gonna happen to those kids from Hunter High-a name I loved by the way. Did Paris really see Sienna or was he just ambrosia-dreaming? Is there a way for me to strike this mysterious angel out and replace her with me for Aeron? So many questions..

Sooo glad to see some of Amun, Kane and Strider in this one. And Gideon, oh Gideon. Since we're closing in on his book I guess that's expected but love the guy. Poor man though, it broke my heart when he spoke the truth about how he felt to that SOB Dean Stephano and got hurt like hell. That man needs to die, like, yesterday.

I was so excited about Torin and Cameo until a pointy-eared woman appeared out of nowhere on Torin's monitors and disappointed me. I really liked the idea of those two and was kinda hoping they'd be each other's HEA. Especially after the monologue we had of Torin about him wrapping his finger around her hair and all. Gena, why?

This one left me with so many questions, and it was a great step to take the story further, Gena seems smarter and smarter with every book, introducing new troubles and possiblities. And isn't it just awesome that past couples don't disappear in the new books? Did I mention this before? Maybe once right? I freaking love that part of this series. And the way these guys support each other and love each other, and the way they truly love each other's women, it's so freaking adorable. If there was a way to give 6 starts to books here, this series would've gotten one for each from me.

LMAO. I love this book. It's so fantastic! And you just stop thinking about my sex scene with Sabin, you little minx! LOL. Ohhh, Gideon. So adorable, so sad.

Of course, I already know what you think about this and you know what I think so I'm not going to say much more, LOL

Gokce ~Muslin Myst~ LOL. I'M THERE!!

But don't worry, thankfully you don't have just Sabin and hey, I can always replace him with someone else in the forest! LOL. And you know I already did ;)

What's your fave sex scene Gokce?

Gokce ~Muslin Myst~ Yesss!! I know some guys who actually agree that such books give them an insight to what women find sexy ;)

In this book? The wild jungle sex, I think it was after a training session or something, and Gwen was pissed :) Did you finish it?
