Lord of the Abyss- Nalini Singh

As the dark Lord who condemns souls to damnation in the Abyss, Micah is nothing but a feared monster wrapped in impenetrable black armor. He has no idea he is the last heir of Elden, its last hope. Only one woman knows—the daughter of his enemy.
Liliana is nothing like her father, the Blood Sorcerer who’d cursed Micah. She sees past Micah’s armor to the prince inside. A prince whose sinful touch she craves. But first she has to brave his dark, dangerous lair and help him remember. Because they only have till midnight to save Elden.
Oh out of the four this was by far my favorite storyline and I really liked Micah. Liliana is the Blood Sorcerer's daughter and she hates him so she travels to the Abyss to find Micah, who does not know who or what he really is, after she had a vision and knew she was the only hope of saving Eden and the brothers and sister. This story was a modern day twist to Beauty and the Beast to me, when Micah's parents were killed he was only five years old, he was put into a hold like state until he was old enough and big enough to become the Lord of the Abyss. Liliana knowing who he is tries to gently get him to remember things from his past before it is too late. When he was banished 20 or more years ago he was also cursed, he becomes a beast that no one can control, until Liliana. She has been told her whole life she is ugly and no one would ever love her but Micah has never been with a woman and he sees past her looks at the person she really is. The sex scenes are so well written in this book and believable for two people who have never been with anyone else. The end of this book was fantastic to me, not just how they wrapped it up but Micah is not the only one changed to something else at the end and his comments about Liliana after the change were great.
My Rating: 4.5   Wendy
