Review: The Darkest Surrender (Lords of the Underworld #8) by Gena Showalter

Title: The Darkest Surrender
Series: Lords of the Underworld #8
Author: Gena Showalter
Pages: 426
Genre: Paranormal Romance, 

Purchase: Amazon

Book Description:

Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider cannot lose a challenge without suffering unimaginable pain. For him, nothing stands in the way of victory. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him to the razor's edge of surrender.

Known among her people as The Disappointment, Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games or die. Strider is a distraction she can't afford because he has an agenda of his own-steal first prize, an ancient godly artifact, before the winner can be named. But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter-the love neither had thought possible...

My Review

Hot, hot, HOT! I am a little behind on this series, but I'm going to be catching up soon after reading The Darkest Surrender! This book had me on the edge of my seat!

In The Darkest Surrender, we get Strider (the keeper of the demon Defeat), and Kaia's (a Harpy) story. 

Kaia has been featured in past books, and in this book we get to learn a lot more about Harpy's. I thought that was really cool. Knowing more about their race, how they mate, and how they name each other was interesting. Kaia, sadly, is known as The Disappointment. Having a horrible and pain filled background. With the new Harpy Games she feels she MUST prove herself. However now she has more than just the Harpy games to worry about. Strider is proving to be a challenge. 

Strider wants to be with Kaia so bad but being the keeper of defeat to someone is is constantly throwing out challenges makes him hesitate. He cannot resist her or her need however and of course the end up together. 

Danger of hunters, and Kaia's past is not far behind however, and throw in the Fourth Artifact and you have an amazing, sizzling hot, witty fast paced novel that makes me wonder how I stayed away so long! 

I would recommend this series to anyone who is interested in paranormal romance.

5 Moons!
