Gena Showalter- The Darkest Secret (book 7)

Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when new demons possess him, the immortal warrior must be chained and isolated to protect those he loves. Death is his only hope of release—until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty…. Haidee is an infamous demon assassin, raised to despise Amun’s kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul…and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her. 
The Lords of the Underworld series is one of my favorite series out there. This series has everything you could possibly want in a Paranormal Romance series but this book left me wanting more. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book but it just was not god enough to be a stand out in this fabulous series. I don't know if it was Amun or Haidee or the combination of the two of them together. Amun is the keeper of the demon, Secrets, he is the Lord that does not talk because when he opens his mouth every ones deepest darkest secrets come out. He can hear thoughts or well his demon can so his friends have to be on guard around him or he will know everything they are thinking. Most of the Lords don't have big roles in this book, unlike some of the other books we only hear a few things about them or from them. This book has a lot of Amun and Haidee questioning each other, their feelings for each other and honestly everything else around them. It was just too many questions and going back and forth for me to get really into the story. I love a HEA as much as the next girl but this one did not really impress me. And I LOVE her writing, but I was not feeling this book. Amun communicated with Haidee by talking with his mind and she is the first and only person to ever be able to hear him, he uses sign language to communicate with the other Lords. There are a few great scenes in this book and of course some funny moments but overall I liked it, just didn't love it like I did all the others in this series. Strider is next and I am looking forward to his story but not as much as the next book, finally Paris will have his HEA-- well hopefully! 
My Rating: 3


  1. I agree not one of the better books. But I must say I loved the part where Amun was telling the lords about Haidee and what she meant to him.

  2. sadly i agree also.. but paris the part he had in this books was damn sad.. and strider stayed getting his ass kicked..lol but i do have a question while reading this but i thought Amun was black.. they keep talking about his dark skin.. but the cover doesnt show that.. doesnt really matter.. but i do like the cover to match the man please
