“Best in the series so far.
Sabin did not make a good impression in the earlier books but he is definitely worth it in the end.
Gwen starts out as timid and vulnerable but grows into her own abilities and is a wonderful heroine. The romance with Sabin is completely engaging and I love it when a hero falls hard against his better judgment.
The developments in the story arc are particularly compelling and Showlater definitely knows how to write in the twists and turns - this one has a really doozy.
Also enjoyed the insights into some of the other Lords, especially Gideon who was another character that had me wary. Now I want to know more about him.”

“I liked sabin and Gwen, but got tired of her annoying sisters. I hope each one isn't paired up with one of the lords. One book about a harpy is enough.”Roz wrote this review Tuesday, February 14, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I really enjoyed this one. This finally introduced more groups of immortals that are living amoung the Lords. I was constanatly wondering if the Gods and Lords were only supernaturals around but now I know they are not.
“I find myself pleasantly surprised by this, the fourth instalment in The Lords of The Underworld series. I have to admit to judging this book before I started it. Not by its cover, for that is mucho, mucho pretty, but by the lead character Sabin, whom I hadn't really developed any great appreciation for since his introduction into the series in book...two? Was it only book two the rest of the warriors rejoined the group? I forget. Too many books in my poor, tired brain. So sad.
I really enjoyed both the hero and heroine, Sabin and Gwen (also sometimes known as Gwendolyn the Timid). Both were strong- physically and emotionally- although one needed a bit of convincing on the latter. And I also enjoyed Showalter's interpretation of the Harpy as a supernatural creature. This isn't something that I've come across often on my paranormal travels. At least not with the Harpy as a main character.
As with previous couples, the love story progressed very quickly. All of these matings seem to share this trait. The attraction when each Lord meets "the one" is usually pretty instantaneous, and this was no different. Even with the valid reasons for wariness they both had. I enjoyed their journey- rocky as it was at times- and that part of the story was more than satisfying.
I also enjoyed the little departures we took from the main couple to catch up with the other Lords. There is further development in particular for the characters of Torin, Paris, Galen and Aeron, and I'm greatly looking forward to following each subplot up in future books.
The only slight downside was the ending. There was a decision made that I didn't agree with but I do understand its need in terms of the ongoing story arc as this is a series and that means sometimes threads get left waving in the wind. It was just a small thing, really, but it dulled the impact of the final pages.”
