Availability: In stores now

Publisher: Harlequin Books

I give this 4 out of 5 stars

Description from Amazon.com: Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concerned until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she’d fall for a kind human who wouldn’t rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora’s box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love.

I have been anxiously awaiting the next book in the Lords of the Underworld series and this one certainly did not disappoint.  I found it a little hard to like Sabin but I loved Gwen and her harpy sisters.  Sabin’s total dedication to winning the war against the Hunters even if it meant hurting his friends or other people rubbed me the wrong way.  But the harpies definitely made the book worth reading.  The action was great and it was it was nice to see Sabin brought to his knees by a woman.  This story was also filled with some great twists and turns in the battle between the Lords and the Hunters.  I did not see those coming and cannot wait to read more about these new developments.  We also get a few more glimpses into Paris’s and Gideon’s stories.  Ever since Paris’s woman was killed I’ve been dying to know what is going to happen in his story.  Luckily according to the page at the end of this book the next Lords of the Underworld installment is due out January 2010 and it will be called Heart of Darkness.  I cannot wait because it features another Harpy, one of Gwen’s sisters!
