Aeron is an Immortal Lord who houses the demon Wrath. Olivia is an angel who refused to kill him when ordered to by the Heavenly High Council. Her punishment is to become a fallen angel, so they give her the boot and she descends to the bowels of Hell. However, she digs her way to the surface in order to get to Aeron. She gave up everything for him and, by golly, she’s going to get to him, fighting demons and digging with her hands to do just that.
This 5th installment of the Lords of the Underworld is just as twisty and turny as the previous ones as the Lords and the Hunters fight to be the first to find Pandora’s Box. In order to do that they need all four of the magical artifacts, two of which are in the possession of the Lords. Another is found in this book. Which one and who gets it, you ask? I’m not telling. LOL
Another demon-possessed immortal is found and captured by the Lords, her name is Scarlet and she has a surprising connection to Gideon, Keeper of Lies. Something happens to Legion, Lysander makes several appearances, we learn a bit about Ashlyn’s pregnancy, more facts about the power struggles involving the Titans, the Unspoken Ones (whom I’ve dubbed the Ugly Ones) show themselves, fighting, humor and yummy hot sex are all packed into this story.
The ending is a bit of a shocker and I can’t wait to get to the next book, Gideon’s story, to see how it continues. I love this series!
Go Team Lords! Die, Hunters, Die!
