Review: The Darkest Passion

The Darkest Passion is the 5th book in the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter, an HQN Paranormal Romance and the story of Aeron and Olivia.

Book Blurb:

For weeks, the immortal warrior Aeron has sensed an invisible female presence. An angel - demon-assassin - has been sent to kill him. Or has she? Olivia claims she fell from the heavens, giving up immortality because she couldn't bear to harm him. But trusting - and falling for - Olivia will endanger them all. So how has this 'mortal' with the huge blue eyes already unleashed Aeron's darkest passion?

Now, with an enemy hot on his trail and his faithful demon companion determined to remove Olivia from his life, Aeron is trapped between duty and consuming desire. Worse still, a new executioner has been sent to do the job Olivia wouldn't...

The Darkest Passion was an okay read - but it was not my favorite of the bunch.

Aeron is the keeper of Wrath - and I think that is where I ran into a problem. Once he meets Olivia - Wrath is all sweetness and sunshine. Or so it seems. LOL

Olivia is an angel who has been sent to kill Aeron (yeah, I thought the same thing - not very angel like) but instead falls for him - and I do mean falls.

The Lords are still looking for the remaining relics and Pandora's Box - and still fighting the Hunters who are being led by Galen.

We do get a revelation about Cronus - and that puts a new spin on things.

But honestly, the thing that stands out in mind the most about The Darkest Passion is the hints about the next book - Gideon's story, The Darkest Lie. I can't wait for the one.

So The Darkest Passion was a good read - but not my favorite in the series. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Good to know, I guess all can't be excellent, a series does loose soemthing during the way, but it can always get better again
