I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars

Description from Amazon.com: 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. A future with her might mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon’s enemies draw closer—and the truth threatens to destroy all he’s come to love….

I loved this book!  I really liked both Gideon and Scarlett’s characters.  They were the perfect balance of strong and vulnerable characters that endears them to the readers heart.   If you have not read The Darkest Passion then you missed Scarlett’s revelation to Gideon that she is his wife.  Gideon has no memory of Scarlett and yet finds himself strongly attracted to her and it makes him wonder if they were really married.  If they were married why does he not remember it?   Of course Scarlett is pissed off he doesn’t remember her and she is not one to make angry.  Her power is one of the most kick ass of the demon possessed.  She is basically a female Freddy Krueger.  She can enter people’s dreams, manipulate them and her demon feeds off the person’s fear.  The worst part is if you die in the dream then you die in real life.  How freaky is that?

The best part of this book is that unlike the previous books in the series was that there was a major twist that I did not see coming.  It was such a great twist too that I don’t want to ruin for anyone but I was like “Wow!  That’s crazy.”  The worst part of this book?  It’s the tantalizing glimpses you get into Paris’ and Sienna’s story.  We get a short glimpse of how Sienna is dealing with having Wrath put in her and the first inklings of how she will encounter Paris again.  But, it is just not enough!  I want to read his story already!
