The Darkest Lie

The Darkest Lie

My Rating ~ 4 out of 5

Gideon is the immortal keeper of the Demon of Lies. He can only speak lies because if he speaks the truth then he suffers unbearable pain and takes days to recover. Not an enjoyable pastime. How frustrating must it be to speak only in lies and never be understood by anyone except his friends, the other immortals who are keepers of demons? According to Gideon, it’s very frustrating and it’s irritating for his friends to listen to him and try to decipher his Gideon-speak.

Even more frustrating is his love life. When he says, ‘Don’t tell me what you like,’ he really wants to know what a woman likes, but she thinks he doesn’t want to know, so she stays silent while he tries to guess. Not much of an ego boost. Until Scarlet, the keeper of the Demon of Nightmares, is captured and she tells him he is her husband. He doesn’t remember getting married, so now he has a mystery to solve, one that involves the incredibly sexy Scarlet who may or may not be his wife. While he’s off doing that his friends are off on their own missions and the war between the Lords of the Underworld and the Hunters heats up even further.

Another homerun in the Lords of the Underworld series. We have Gideon’s mystery to figure out, Aeron, William and Amun’s trek to Hell to rescue Legion, Strider’s capture of a female Hunter, Sienna’s progress after being forced to house the demon of Wrath and the appearances of various others seen in the previous books to see. I’m looking forward to continuing a series I love.
