His powers - inhuman; His passion - beyond immortal. All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own. Neither can resist the instant hunger that calms their torments...and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction - and a soul-shattering test of love. Download and start listening now!

    " I did not get in to this as much as I thought I would. Maddox looks better on the cover and should just sit and look pretty versus talking since he speaks "caveman" most of the time. It is a continuing series, so I may continue on to see if I can dive in to the private hells of Pain, Disease, Death, Promiscuity, and Wrath further since I did think the interaction between these lords/demons was interesting. "

    " I really don't know what to say about this book. I found really difficult to sit and complete may be the writing style sigh just didn't get what the hype was about. However i will read the rest of series hoping for improvement. "

    " Wow.... That's all u can say....lol if you haven't read this book so it now "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/12/2014

    " I thought the author did a good job creating an interesting world and characters, but I will not be going any further in the series. I was really annoyed by the writing style of the author who tended to use one word sentences for all emotions. Writing. Terrible. Can't read. It basically drove me nuts by the end of the novel. Too bad because I did think she had a good idea going with the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda Gail Walters | 1/3/2014

    " I know that this is a popular series and Gena Showalter's writing is very good, but I just never found any of these characters to be either believable or even likable. Maybe some time, I come back to this book and I'll see it in a different light, but right now, I didn't like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillian | 1/2/2014

    " Slightly higher than 4 stars, but can't bump it to a 5. It was a great start to a new series. Looking forward to the other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samie Kauchis | 10/14/2013

    " This book may have suffered from First Book Syndrome. It seemed to kinda drag in the beginning and I didn't find myself getting into it until about 2/3rds of the way through. I am intrigued though and will definitely move onto the next books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leigh | 8/29/2013

    " The entirety of character development consisted of it's magic / it's love. But it entertained me. (I giggle at ridiculousness in sex scenes, so sue me.) "

    " I just now finished reading this book, and I must say that I loved the book, the story was fun and sexy. I loved the Lords and their daily struggles against their demons and loved that Ashlyn had broken the curse of Maddox and stay with him at the end. I think this is a good book. "
