The Darkest Secret by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This series needs to be read in order. Start with "The Darkest Night" or the Gena Showalter Lords of the Underworld Bundle with the the first five books and the prequel "The Darkest Fire".
Pure fantasy delight. Not gritty reality. Magic often solves mundane problems. Anything is possible in this universe (death is just the beginning for some characters). And those are the *reasons* to read this series. The characters are interesting, complex and funny. I swear she has actually spent quality time with her fictional people.
Even with Showalter's habit of using sentence fragments, I love the way she writes. Funny and passionate and fast paced. Though not the best of the series, it is definately worth the time to revisit old friends and make new ones.
This is Amun and Hadiee's love story (Amun is the keeper of the demon Secrets and Hadiee murdered one of Amun's best friends - a long time ago).
We also spend time with Strider (his thought pattern cracks me up) and William - bad boys who haven't found their women, yet. And we take another trip into Hell. Many of the other characters make an appearance in this Underworld Soap Opera. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy.
