Description from Goodreads.com: Three otherworldly tales from the master of paranormal romance . . . and a brand new Lords of the Underworld bonus guide!

The Darkest Fire
A Lords of the Underworld prequel

Geryon is the guardian of hell, more monster than man. Kadence is the goddess of Oppression, more angel than woman. Together they will enter the flames to battle a dangerous horde of demon lords — and discover a passion unlike any other . . .

The Amazon’s Curse
A tale of Atlantis

Zane, a fierce vampire warrior, has been enslaved by the Amazons. Nola, a lovely Amazon soldier, has been cursed with invisibility. Now, these two stubborn enemies must overcome the pasts that haunt them and embrace a love that can set them free…

The Darkest Prison
A Lords of the Underworld Tale

Once, Atlas, the Titan god of Strength, was the Greek goddess Nike’s slave. Now, he is her master. And soon these sworn rivals destined to destroy each other will be forced to risk everything for a chance at love . . .

I love, love, love the Lords of the Underworld books so I was excited to find out the origins of Pandora’s box and an additional LofTU story.  I was disappointed in The Darkest Fire.  The story never grabbed me and the ending was a total let down.  Maybe it’s because I’m used to the characters triumphing against the odds but this ending just seemed like the characters giving up.  The Amazon’s Curse was better although I am not familiar with her Atlantis books.  I liked getting a glimpse into vampire society and it was actually touching to see Zane’s softer side and the mention of how he felt about children and family.  I would definitely like to read more about the Amazonian warriors and may have to check out the Atlantis series.  My favorite was probably The Darkest Prison.  We got to see Sienna again and I am dying to read Paris and Sienna’s story.  It’s like a tease that we get these short glimpses of what is to come but I just want that story in my hands!  I enjoyed both Atlas and Nike and the chemistry between the two was hot.  It gives you a hint of what is to come in the war between the Greeks and the Titans and it made a nice addition to the LofTU series.
