Man how I enjoyed this book, it was action packed and down right awesome sauce. I am in love with that blue haired devil called Gideon. The Mr sexy, keeper of lies, which means he has to speak lies instead of truth. So everything he says means the complete opposite. He just met the keeper of nightmares and she is saying that they were married and shared a son, but Gideon can’t remember a thing but he knows this woman, he yearns for this woman.

So the lords are still fighting their human enemies who believe them evil, but it turns out they are the evil biatches, so it becomes a fight between the gods, and all that Gideon and Scarlet hold dear is put to the test. Scarlet is the daughter of Rhea, and hated by Cronus. So let’s say all the sexy powerful people want her dead, but the keeper of nightmares is no push over. She can kick ass and take names like any of the lords, and she wants Gideon something fierce. It seems though that someone has played some mind tricks on Scarlet and things aren’t what they seem. Will Scarlet lose it all? On the other hand, will she gain everything through their deception?

I am gonna tell you how I feel about everything in this book through Gideon speak.
‘I completely effing hated it. No, I don’t want to have sex with Gideon, I think he is the ugliest lord and the piercings do not make me lose my pants. I never once thought about an Amun/Aeron sandwich, just the thought of it disgusts me. I was in no way attracted to Scarlet; she was a complete bitch, and totally undeserving of Gideon. One of the books I hated the most in the series, not as action packed as the others.’
Take everything I just said and switch it around.

SIDE STORIES- Legion has people killing themselves off again. William has strong feelings for jailbait. Amun goes bat shit crazy, and man is the silence and brooding sexy on him. Paris’s hunter chick is back and bat shit crazy. All the shite is about to hit the fan.

I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait for Amun’s book, he’s so bat shit crazy right now.
