The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld 1) - Gene Showalter

The Book
Release Date:  1 January 2008

His powers - Inhuman...
His passion - Beyond immortal...

All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member -- a man trapped in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments... and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction -- and a soul-shattering test of love...
Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive -- and unimaginably powerful...

My Opinion  5 STARS
This book holds everything you need in a good book, romance, love, death, life, intrigue, deception and curses to name but a few. 

Showalter weaves a tale incorporating the best of the best giving you a tale to suck you in, spitting you out at the end making you want to plunge yourself in her world again.

Maddox is curse to hold a demon within him for eternity like his friends, his demon being violence, however as he happened to kill Pandora he is also cursed with dying time and time again at midnight the way he had killed her. With six stab wounds to the stomach.

Ashlyn has heard voices her entire life and was given up by her parents as they couldn't cope with her. She has worked for the institute her whole life finding mythological items and finding other people purely with her talent. She hears of the angels on the hill hoping they can help her, finding Maddox and getting pure silence when he is near for the first time.

Attraction runs deep with them and they find it better to cope with the other at their side. 

A brilliant read.
