The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter Review

Summary: (Taken from Goodreads)

She has tempted many men...but never found her equal. Until now. 

Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him. 

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining... 

I am really starting to love this series! For those of you that haven't read book one in the series, The Darkest Night, go and pick it up now! You definitely won't regret it!

The Darkest Kiss moves on to the point of view of Lucien who possesses the demon of Death.

After recently being released from a curse (I won't say what kind) Lucien finds himself meeting Anya, the minor Goddess of Anarchy.

I loved Anya's character. She brought so much fun into the series. Lot's of you know I love strong-willed and vivacious female characters in books and Anya fulfilled all of my expectations of her as a character. She challenged the Lords, Lucien most of all, rebelled against the Gods an most of all made me laugh!

Just like the first book, The Darkest Kiss, was full of action, suspense and romance.

I couldn't put it down.

About the author:

Her novels have appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine, MTV, Seventeen Magazine, and have been translated in French, Italian and Korean. The critics have called her books "sizzling page-turners" and "utterly spellbinding stories", while Showalter herself has been called “a star on the rise”.
