Synopsis: In this riveting new installment of New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series, Gideon, keeper of the Demon of Lies, fights to uncover the truth….
Forced to his knees in agony whenever he speaks the truth, Gideon can recognize any lie—until he captures Scarlet, a demon-possessed immortal who claims to be his long-lost wife. He doesn’t remember the beautiful female, much less wedding — or bedding — her. But he wants to . . . almost as much as he wants her.
But Scarlet is keeper of Nightmares, too dangerous to roam free, and a future with her could mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon’s enemies draw closer . . . and the truth threatens to destroy all he’s come to love . . .
My thoughts: I loved this one, but found it hard to read with all the Gideon-speak. I kept having to go back and reread paragraphs.
I loved Scarlet as a heroine. She had her own powers and was an all-round kick-ass female. Scarlet controls Nightmares and can enter people’s dreams, find out their deepest fears and create dreams will actually cause physical harm in the real world. She has a past with Gideon and is determined to torture him for the pain he caused her over the centuries, but can she resist him? She not only has to fight with Gideon over their supposed past, but her demon as well.
Gideon, like I said before, is kind of hard to understand. He would be thrilled to actually tell Scarlet how he feels without having to say the opposite. Luckily Scarlet understands Gideon speak better than I do! Oh and luckily for Scarlet, Gideon’s hands are back! Now that would certainly be torture for Gideon!
How could Gideon forget his time with this woman? Was he really that callous? I don’t think so, I love Gideon! Still not my absolute FAVORITE Lord, but he’s up there. This one is a four and a half burning heart for me!!
