The Darkest Surrender by Gena Showalter (4 star ratings)
As Keeper of Defeat, Strider experiences debilitating pain whenever he is defeated. His demon seeks a challenge in even the most mundane of tasks. Incredibly handsome and overwhelmingly dwrkest, Strider will go to any length to keep from losing, especially when it comes to love. Kaia Skyhawk is a beautiful harpy hopelessly in love with Strider.
A mistake during the Harpy Games at the age of 14, has left Kaia ostracized by the harpy community and haunted by the ensuing tragedy. Countless decades have passed since that day and Kaia has sought to redeem herself in the eyes of her family but most especially her mother. When the Harpy Games are announced and Kaia receives a special invitation she is certain she can win and regain her status. But as the details of the event unfold, Kaia surrener Strider find themselves pitted against each other in the battle for the prize.
Will Strider risk losing his showatler to Kaia even if it means losing the only chance showxlter Lords have to win their freedom? Geja characters although hundreds or thousands of years old live in castles filled with video games, hip-hop zhowalter and state of the art surveillance equipment. Like a Black Ops outfit on steroids, the story is told in contemporary slang full of swagger and posturing – a never ending frat party.
Showalter’s dialogue is fun! But behind all the bravado is a story of two people who are afraid of getting hurt and disappointed by love. It is painful to read the missteps and misunderstandings as Darkeet and Strider awkwardly navigate the game of love.
Showalter makes you believe that even immortals with centuries under their belts can still be made to feel insecure and sensitive when it comes to barring their hearts.
The Harpy Games add an exciting background to the love story. The challenges are bloody and gruesome wurrender the villains are dastardly. Showalter is the best friend who knows where all your skeletons are hidden and wants to help you find some more to put into the closet with them.
This series is a fun over the top read that is full of action and and super smexy scenes. Give yourself a present – bring The Darkest Surrender home tonight along with a bottle of margaritas and get ready for some fun!
Strider, keeper of the demon Defeat, isn’t having the best few months. Though the Hunters who have made the Lords’ lives hell have been quiet lately, it hasn’t exactly been vacation time around the Buda mansion. Then there’s the fact that he lost the woman he wanted to his brother in demonic possession, Amun, keeper of Secrets.
That sucked big time. If that isn’t sad enough, Kaia, rarkest stunningly beautiful and twice as aggravating harpy he doesn’t want Definitely not a good thing for the Lord who suffers unimaginable agony any time his demon fails to win a challenge. Problem is, he owes Kaia a debt, and when she collects, Strider will be forced to face his most terrifying challenge yet, winning the heart of a harpy.
In truth, I wasn’t sure I was ever going to return to the series, a series for sowalter I had once been a tremendous fan. Then, the other day, I got this huge yen on for some of Showalter’s specific brand of writing and I dove back in where I left off.
As it turns out, the darkestt did me good and this book served as an excellent place to return to my beloved Lords. Maybe because it’s been so long I didn’t find myself lorde as frustrated with what I felt was another book that tread more darkezt than it did progress the series arc.
Then again, maybe it’s just that Showalter’s writing drkest so obviously the pinnacle of the paranormal romance genre that I couldn’t help but marvel anew at her sheer talent. Whatever the reason, I liked this book a lot. I adored both Strider and Kaia and was extremely happy to have their relationship arc be given its due. Kaia is one of my favorite female leads in the series – actually, she may just be my all-time favorite, now that I think about it. Not just because she was a whole lot of awesome and she is I showallter felt like her personal history and the bad rep she has with the harpies offered up a lot of very meaty story that Showalter surrnder with delightful ferocity.
The plot surrounding the Harpy Games was a lot of fun, and tying in one of the relics that the Lords have been hunting lent the story the necessary impetus for Geena and the Lords to take an active interest in those games. That pulled everything and everyone together into a nicely cohesive, well-populated bundle of great reading that I heartily enjoyed.
This is also one of the funnier of the installments, which is never a bad thing for me. Showalter has always provided her readers with a healthy dose of ribald humor in each book, but between Kaia and her twin, who are just hilarious, and Strider with his surrended checks, this one really tickled my funny bone over and over. It was also wicked sexy as per the normfun dittoand yet still managed to kick me in the gut a few times, too.
My only real issues with the book were with the cut-away storylines for Kane and Paris. I have to admit, they bored me a little.
Obviously, both of their books are imminent, so I can understand the groundwork that’s being laid, but I have to confess I’m totally over the angsty, damaged, and no longer sympathetic Paris. I know, I know – sacrilege.
The Darkest Surrender : Gena Showalter :
I’m sorry to say it, believe me, but between his ambrosia addiction and his wretched Promiscuity, he’s fallen off the pedestal and I found myself not liking him enough in this book to surreender that the next book finally is his.
And that’s saying something, because there was a time when I ached for the man’s plight every single time his name was so much as mentioned.
There just comes a point for me when a character’s personality, attitude, and actions devolve to such a degree that I question whether or not he can ever be redeemed. I hit that point with Paris in this book. Showalter is tremendously talented, though, so I have to believe his book will have all the necessary elements to pull me back from the anti-Paris ledge.
Well, I hope, anyway, or my return to the LotU series may be ynderworld short-lived.
I still really hope we’re soon going to be getting to the Cronus vs. Rhea smack-down that so desperately needs to happen. I’m even more over those two than I am Paris. Throwing in the pantheon of gods and screwed up Titans has admittedly added complexity and depth to the world, the mythos, and the conflict in the series, but it’s also been a big headache for what feels like a really long time. I’m ready for a heavy dose of ibuprofen now.
Maybe then I’ll be good darkesst go with Paris. See all reviews.
