The Darkest Secret (Lords of the Underworld 7) - Gena Showalter

The Book
Release Date: 9 March 2011

n this sexy new installment of Showalter's bestselling Lords of the Underworld series, the haunted Amun meets a woman who tempts him like no other...

Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when the immortal warrior is chained and isolated to protect those he loves, death is his only hope of release—until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty.

Haidee is a demon-assassin, raised to despise Amun's kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul...and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her.

My Opinion  5 STARS
Ok so this is the story of Amun and Haidee.

We have Haidee (who has changed her name from Hadiee) and has been mentioned in previous books as the woman who was the bait that led the hunter in killing Baden, the keeper for the demon Distrust.

Haidee we learn lost her family and her husband the demons. She herself was targeted by a demon and died. However each time she dies she is reanimated and finds herself in a cave with hate as her main feeling for the first few years. She has actively hunted demons since her second life. Each reanimation hurts her much more than dying.

Amun is the keeper of Secrets and has to communicate with his friends via sign language as if he tries to speak the secrets he has taken spill out. When he finds Haidee next to him when he comes lucid from being in hell, he is shocked to find that she can here his thoughts if he puts them in words. Something know one has been able to do before. 

However the attraction between them is strong even when his demon rifles through her memories and find out her secrets, and her true past (killer of Baden).

With a quest into hell for Amun to get rid of the demons he has consumed, and Haidee having agreed to go, they find love and acceptance.

A wonderful book.
