Gena Showalter - The Darkest Secret

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.

Comment: The Darkest Secret is the last installment of the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter. This is a world populated with several kinds of demons and angels. It's pretty good and the author has managed to keep things intriguing by changing the character's atitudes and letting the reader think some believed bad guys can actually be redeemed.

The romance sizzles and the plot usually moves in an acceptable pace, not too fast and not too slow, it depends on the book.

Amun has the demon of Secrets and doesn't speak, otherwise his demon will expell all the sercrets he has inside and that would really hurt. So, Amun has always acted in the sidelines, not having too much of a front scene. Now his book has come and although it isn't close to my favourites, I still liked it, especially because of the tidbits we've learned about other things happening and because it sets up nicely the next story, Strider's. Haidee is a Hunter, enemy of the lords, but like always with this author, nothing is black and white, everything can change and exist in shades of grey and it was quite good to see how these two characters could change to be something better.

I'm still a fan of the series and while the author keeps delivering interesting, fresh things I'll keep buying. Can't wait for what it's to come....
