    1. By Thor's hammer, this book is fantastic!! And yes, I skipped the first book and went straight for second. That's just how I roll. I'm not an avid reader of fantasy/paranormal novels, but this was worth the reread. I'm saying this not just because I'm in love with the cover. *stares at cover and sighs dreamily*And it's not just because the hero has a killer body and his stare could melt an iceberg. *dreamily thinks about the hero's hot body*No. This book is for educational purposes only. *thinks [...]

    2. While I expected this book to be really great, it ended up just being a middle of the road type of read for me. This was definitely a case of "it's not you, it's me", as there wasn't a single thing "wrong" with this story. Mostly, I think it is just a result of reading some phenomenal books recently, which has kind of raised the bar. Any other week, it probably would've been a 4-star read.That being said, I found myself losing interest in this book. I was listening to the Audible version and the [...]

    3. He was known as The Dark One. Malach ha-Maet. Yama. Azreal. Shadow Walker. Mairya. King of the Dead. He was all of those things and more, for he was a Lord of the Underworld.This one was sooo much better than the first, with two awesome main characters and a great story :)I really loved it :)Lucien, the Lord who carries the demon of Death, gets an order from Cronus, the King of the Titans, to kill someone.That someone is Anya, the goddess of anarchy, who has been following him for months.Anya is [...]

    4. I loved this book. Lucien was absolutely sigh-worthy to me. So sad and lonely. And, he got his very own heroine who wouldn't give up on him. I think it took some major confidence to go after her man full throttle the way Anya did. From the beginning, I knew I would like Anya. She was the kind of heroine who knows what she wants, and is willing to work for it. Yes, she's a prankster, rather silly, in her own words, and not much for telling the truth, and she can be a pain in the butt at times. Bu [...]

    5. LucienAnyaLucien is the Lord who is possessed by the spirit of death .We could characterize him as miserable since he is feeling bad and unworthy due to his looks .He has mismatched eyes and long time ago he decided to scar his own face. As we read he isn’t the happy and funny type. However he managed to draw Anya’s attention and she's following him for months.Anya is the goddess of Anarchy and definitely bad news for Lucien .She is courageous, fearless, dynamic and way different than him .S [...]

    6. 5 Death & The Goddess Stars!This is the second book in the Lords of the Underworld PNR series. I loved it more than the first one. This was Lucien and Anya's story. Lucien is cursed with the death demon. You knowmeone dies and he goes off to collect their soul and escorts them to Heaven or Hell. Anya is the Goddess of Anarchy. I loved her so much in the last book and loved her more in this one. She's fierce, funny and does and says what the hell she wants. She wants Lucien. Lucien was in lov [...]

    7. "She kissed and nipped at his face, her hands tangling into his hair. “I thought I’d lost you.” “You gave up everything for me.” I enjoyed this book a lot!!Anya is one of my favorite heroine after Danika!!She was so funny,strong and so sexy!!Exactly what Lucien needed!!Both of them had serious issues!Omg poor Lucien!!He is so torturedI really felt sorry for him when I learnt how he got his scars!I loved the sexual tension between them, it was so entertaining!The romance was also good a [...]

    9. “You stabbed me,” he said, incredulous. Grimacing, he jerked out the now-bloody dagger and rubbed a hand over the wound, then looked down at his drenched, crimson-stained fingers. Anger overrode the incredulity.“Feel free to keep the dagger as a souvenir.” July 22, 2013The Darkest Kiss is the second book of the Lords of the Underworld series, the story of Lucien, Keeper of Death, and Anya, goddess of Anarchy. Lucien is resigned with his occupation as the escort of souls Heaven and Hell, [...]

    11. Perhaps I spoke too soon regarding this series? I was surprised to see that this book had higher ratings than the first book? What gives, folks? I was really unimpressed with this one. My ratings ranged from 1 to 3 stars in the book, never anything higher than that. Yes, I know I said I liked a touch of ridiculousness, but the keyword was a touch of ridiculous! Not absurd. which is exactly what I got throughout the book. Lucien was not a bad hero. I did not like that he was weak or losing for mo [...]

    12. “Apparently, dancing for him and throwing herself at him weren't enough. Apparently, she had to nearly commit murder to arouse him enough to attack her.”Όπως είχαμε δει και στο πρώτο βιβλίο οι Έλληνες θεοί έχουν ανατραπεί και την θέση τους έχουν πάρει οι σκληρή Τιτάνες. Οι άρχοντες για να να μπορέσουν να νικήσουν τους Τιτάνες πρέπει να βρο [...]

    13. ★★★★ 4.5 STARS!The Darkest Kiss is one of my most fave read in LOTU series. Ugh Lucien I have a special spot for scared man. As an incarnation of death, he has very 'important' job to escort the soul. He's the only person who have Teleportation to places also the boss in this group.Pros:+ As the (minor) Goddess of Anarchy, Anya is the most bad-ass heroine I've ever met. She's brave and very mouthy ;) She really likes drive him mad.+ Lucien + I liked both Lucien and Anya. They're really c [...]

    14. 2.5 StarsI really thought I was going to love this but it didn't work for me. I enjoyed the beginning--so hot!--but for some reason, I just lost interest in the end. I probably wouldn't even have finished if I didn't skim through the last several chapters. But judging by the high ratings from my friends, perhaps it was a case of it's not you, it's me.

    15. It took me over a year to read this book. I’d pick it up and put it down countless times because Anya is just one the most annoying heroines ever written. She drives you round the bend like nails on a chalkboard. The heroine and the hero really ruin what could have been an otherwise good story which pretty much explains why I could only hack this book in small doses.The backdrop of the story continues on from book 1 in the Lords of the Underworld series where these warriors have all inherited [...]

    16. Ölüm, ölüm dediğin nedir ki Lucien ben senin için yaşamayı göze almışım♡♡Bakın bu seri uyuşturucu gibi bişey. Bırakamıyorsunuz, bağımlı oluyorsunuz, okudukça yükseliyorsunuz İlk kitaptan sonra üstüne koyarak, kalitesini bozmadan devam ediyor. Helal sana Gena!!Ölüm iblisi ile lanetlenen savaşçımız Lucien yüzyıllar önce aşık olduğu kadını kaybettikten sonra (ki çok üzücü bi durum lan gerçekten😔😔) bi daha kimseyi kendine yaklaştırmamak için y [...]

    17. Well I certainly enjoyed this book much better than the first in the series, and think that I will now continue on with the series so I am glad I decided to give it another chance. I think I just enjoyed Lucian and Anya's characters much more than Maddox and Ashlyn. They seemed so complex and they each had so many layers to the emotions and actions. Although I must say the plot in this book was pretty thin. It did do a good job of picking up mini story lines from the previous book (like Aeron, D [...]

    18. THE BACK STORY Long ago twelve immortals warriors made by Zeus, became jealous of Pandora she was chosen to guard a box. Inside that box housed some of the most dangerous demons ever known. The Immortals made a horrible mistake of killing Pandora and opening the box. As punishment for the evil they have unleashed each warrior was sentenced to carry one of those demons for all eternity. They are - Violence, Pain, Death, Disease, Disaster, Misery, Doubt, Promiscuity, Defeat, Lies, Secrets, and Wra [...]

    19. Opening Line: " Anya, Goddess of Anarchy, daughter of Lawlessness, and dealer of disorder, stood on the edge of a crowded dance floor."THE DARKEST KISS is book 2 in the exciting and original Lords Of The Underworld series and it's absolutely fantastic. Gena Showalter has outdone herself here, further developing previous characters and sub-plots she has also created my new favourite couple in Lucian and Anya. Their story is filled with raw emotion, tons of sexual tension and non-stop adventure. T [...]

    20. ~~~ 3 "comme ci comme ça" stars~~~Equal parts of cheesy, boring and entertaining. I was losing interest in this book through the story, but toward the end the story picked up a little and it was semi-enjoyable, I guess. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it either. There was one thing I really hated in this book. H recalled his dead ex-lover everytime he did something with h as in: Mariah(ex) was my first and only true love. I suffered and burnt like that time I grieved for Mariah. I ha [...]

    21. Rating; 3.5/5Yazara Paris ile beni seriye kancalama hamlesiyle gıcık olmuş bulunmaktayım. Onun kitabına daha yedi kitap var olduğunu görmedim sanma yazar! Düşmeyeceğim şu anlık o tuzağına. Kahretsin ki merakım dürtüldü bir kere. Neyse geçer bunlarda yavrucuğum, unutursun diyerek yeni kitabıma yelken açıyorum. Ayrıca o kısacık sahnede, bütün kitapta çiftimize hissettiğimden daha çok heyecan hissettim püüüüüü sana Lucien. İlk başta sen "Hayır!" dedin sonra A [...]

    22. Anya ve Lucien diyorum ki biri Ölüm Muhafızı ve bizim 6'lının lideri, biri küçük (😂) Tanrıça. Neyse efenim her iki karakter de kitabın başından sonuna kadar aşırı aşırı aşırı libido yüklüydü. Yahu bir sevişin rahatlayın dedim çok kere ama işte lanetler filan bunlar bi tam sevişemedi sonra Lucien yitip giden libidosunun arkasından inşaat izleyen dayı gibi baktı garibim. Bir de üzerine ben kesiklerinden dolayı çirkinim filan diye eziklenmeler filan. Allahta [...]

    23. I think Anya has to be my favourite female so far. She's much more entertaining and she's just so hilarious. She's a big leap from Ashlyn and Danika, but she's worth it. My favorite parts have to be when Anya, Lucien and William are together. The chemistry flies!Speaking of chemistry, Lucien and Anya are hot together. They may be my favorite pairing out of the books I have read so far, although Scar and Gid are also up there. There's always one thing I wish there was more of in Showalter's writi [...]

    24. Ölüm'ün gül kokan iblisi olur mu demeyin.Zalım Gena yazmış.Teee bu kitapta Paris'e işkence etmeye başlamak ne demek ya?! Kendisini atmışsın zaten 9. kitaba Olacak iş değil!Kitap çok güzeldi ama Anya ile pek anlaşamadım bazı yerlerde ve ilk kitabın ardından daha iyi bir şeyler bekliyordum. Buna rağmen Lucien tarzı, geçmişi ve yaralarıyla tam hayallerimin erkeğiydi. Hele o renkli gözleri Allah Allah!

    25. I just LOVED reading that book. Anya and Lucien are with Aeron and Olivia my favorite couple of this series. Anya, the minor goddess of anarchy, is just hilarious. Gena Showalter created an heroine who is all at once sassy, irreverent, full of mischief and sensitive. With Lucien who hosts Death they are the perfect match.

    26. As much as I loved, The Darkest Night, I think I may just love this one a bit more. Why? Because I'm a sucker for a tortured hero, that's why. And Lucien fits the bill in a big way. He is one of the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors cursed to each hold a demon's soul inside his body. Lucien's demon is Death itself. He's lived a long, lonely existence. He fell in love once, hundreds of years ago, but was forced to ferry his woman's soul to the Otherworld. It was just too much for him to [...]
