Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her - even defy the gods.

Danika is on the run. For months she's eluded the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors who won't rest until she and her family have been destroyed. But her dreams are haunted by Reyes, the warrior whose searing touch she can't forget. Yet a future together could mean death to all they both hold dear. Download and start listening now!

    " I liked this story better than the last one, it wasn't as good as I hoped. It was just so slow moving; it needed more action. I liked the relationship between Reyes and Danika, though there were some "eww" moments at time. I felt so bad for Paris and wonder what's going to happen with him. The mythology is very good in this series and is the main reason I am going to continue reading it. "

    " I was very much into this series by the time I got to this one. Not my favorite, but not bad at all. I very much enjoyed this guilty pleasure read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 K | 1/24/2014

    " This is the final book in the Lords of the Underworld Trilogy. And it tells the tale of Danika and Reeves, whose curse is the demon of pain. As with the other books in this series, I liked the story and seeing how the other characters, and their relationships, turned out. I especially liked how the author created a strong, independent heroine; and continued to follow Reeves's struggle with his loyalty to his friends versus his loyalty to Danika. I liked this story better than the second book, but think the first is still my favorite. The only thing that dissapointed me was the ending. Although I liked the main characters ending, I felt the author left a lot of loose ends with the story and its characters. For example, do the warriors find the artifacts? And what about the other characters- Paris, etc. I hope the author will decide to continue this series in some way. As for recommending this book, my thought it to remind readers it catagorized as a paranormal romance genre, and may not be for everyone. For those who are fans of this genre, I think you'll be pleasantly suprised. "

    " Have to admit,the more of the series I read the more I am liking it. Love the way the demons were incorporated in the story! It just keeps getting better and better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/17/2014

    " Good story, liked bothDanika and Reyes. Could be better. The characters don't stick with me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/28/2013

    " Definately my favorite in this series so far. Danika is sassy but still cute. Reyes is....well....just yummy. Each book just gets better and better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 12/19/2013

    " This one was so crazy! I enjoyed the insight (haha, get it, because of the "eye") it gave into the overarching theme of the series and who wouldn't love Reyes? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tykesha | 12/19/2013

    " omg this book totally rocked. it is a must read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 12/9/2013

    " Maybe I'm just getting used to it, but it seems like this installment spent more time with other characters in the story which made it a little less upsetting whenever we changed to a new character. (I'm VERY intrigued by Paris' story line and will continue to read until his story comes out, at least!) As the third book in a series of at least twelve, I'm a little tired of the brooding, over possessive demon meets completely understanding, forgiving and cherish-able female plot line, but for a steamy summer read it served it's purpose! Again the balance between the two main characters and the plot exposition for the side characters was much better than the first two books and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens to Aeron and Paris! "

    " another great read. I really enjoy the way Gena Showalter writes, it is very entertaining and pulls you in so quickly it's unreal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicky | 11/27/2013

    " I love it. I don't get what everyone was talking about when they where saying that, "there is some big surprise at the end." i had already figure that out from half way in the book. For me this is the best book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucia | 10/7/2013

    " I've been looking forward to Reyes and Danika's story and I wasn't disappointed. I do think the end was a little unbelievable even for a paranormal romance but I loved it anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Haylie | 9/24/2013

    " As great as the others in the series! Absolutly loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/5/2013

    " I liked the first two Lords of the Underworld books better than this one, The author makes you wait forever for the characters to have sex and it gets very frustrating waiting...however it was an interesting story...I like Gena Showalters' series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 11/13/2012

    " One of the best. Dani was a bit wet though... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jhayebyrd | 10/18/2012

    " Gena suprised me yet again. This is one of the best romance series I've ever read! She captures each demon in their element, suprises on ever page. Dont even get me started on the sex...she puts fantasies to shame. :) "

    " Loving it so far. Gena Showalter is a fantastic novelist and I love her characters. Danika is simply entertaining and Reyes is a dark charmer. Definitely falling more in love with every one of the Lords of the Underworld as they come. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hollee | 8/2/2011

    " Every single Lords Book that I read, the more I fall in love with each of them!! Reyes was awesome!!! I feel so sorry for Paris I just want to reach into the book and hug him forever!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 6/17/2011

    " This book was a really quick and fun read with about an equal part smut and storyline. I thought I'd have to quit these books because there was actually a chapter where it was from the bad guys POV, but it was only one, and the rest of the book made up for it. These books are great! :-) "

    " I did not see the ending coming, so this gets an extra star. Overall, a good addition to the series. I'm looking forward to reading the rest! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/23/2011

    " Even though it's considered paranormal romance, and has pretty graphic descriptions, it's still an interesting story line. With greek gods, titans, and immortals interacting with humans it kept my interest. Can't wait to finish the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 4/1/2011

    " 3rd in ser, Danika and Reyes' story "

    " I read this last year, and honestly can't remember a single bit of the story. I found it in my "eh" pile of books that I probably wouldn't read again.
    I do remember that I couldn't read "Lords of the Underworld" without getting that stupid South Park song stuck in my head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summer | 3/27/2011

    " (3.5 stars) it would have been higher if not for Danika CONSTANTLY denying her feelings for something else. man that was annoying! but i really liked the twist the Danika was the All-Seeing Eye. very cool:) "
