His condition is infectious: whoever comes near him feels dark, evil urges. Thousands of years ago, Haidee was the Bait who seduced Baden, Keeper of Distrust that ultimately led his death. Back then, she had paid for that, and the Lords had never thought they would see her again. But Haidee has the ability of being reanimated. She had suffered death several times and the pain of reanimation during the centuries. Zacharel, the leader of the angel army tells Amun there is only one way to get rid of the minions: he has to take back them to Hell.

And since he is lucid only with Haidee at his side, she has to accompany him. With that, their journey begins, not only through the horrifying realms of Hell, but getting to know each other as well. Amun is strong, reliable, and deeply caring, with amazing self-discipline and strength. He is a fierce warrior, and a devoted friend.

He knew his friends considered him calm, without a temper. Normally he was. But when he looked at this woman, this supposed enemy, this unexpected savior, something hard and primal seethed inside him, knocking at the door of his restraint. He felt like a godsdamn caveman, wanting to carry off his woman and hide her from the rest of the world. Wanting to put his body between hers and anyone who dared threaten her.

Wanting to tie her to his bed, keep her there forever, keep her ready for him. Wanting to soothe her even as he ravaged her. The desires were dark and sultry, insidious as they snuck past his defenses and wrapped around his every cell, changing the very fabric of his being.

He was Amun no longer, but Haidee's man. Haidee is extraordinary. With each reanimation she forgets her every good memory, and only the bad ones remain.

And an odd hatred. Despite these things, she tries to conserve the good things: she makes tattoos, sends herself notes and pictures about her nice experiences.

She had made a really bad deal and she had to pay. The problem is that Amun returns in a much worst condition. The silent warrior is back and hundreds of demons are back with him, eating him from inside, destroying his soul. Lords are ready to fight and save their best friend. They are almost identical. So, she will try to save them both from the ruthless Lords. Amun will find peace for the first time with Haidee.

The voices will be silent: Touch, taste, possess, own. After all the misunderstandings are clear, Amun and Haidee will need to leave for the great mission. They have to go back to Hell and put all these demons back! If Hadee is ice, Amun is fire. They complete each other. He gave her what no one else had ever been able to give.

And he wanted her, too. She knew he did. Not even Strider could destroy their love and he will lose this challenge. What can I say? I loved everything in this book, however I am a huge fan so I am easily pleased ; View all 27 comments. Sep 15, Michelle rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the seventh book in the Lord of the Underworlds series.

Amun and Haidee's story. Amun is the keeper of secrets. Every person he comes in contact with he absorbs all of their secrets. So many secrets this man keeps inside of him that he is afraid to open his mouth and spill so many things that could cause harm. Amun uses sign language with his brothers. During the last book when Amun, Areon and William visited Hell to rescue Legion Amun's body absorbed many many demons.

He's lost and wants nothing but to die. He's burning up inside with all the evil churning and churning in his body. That is until Haidee is put in the room beside him. Haidee can hear Amun in her mind. He wants her to come to him.

Series: Lords of the Underworld

She makes all the demons in his body hide. Haidee is confused by this but she claws her way through a hidden door between their rooms. Finally Amun is at peace. His fire has died.

She thinks Amun is her boyfriend Micah. They look just a like. Haidee can't stop the rage that is going through her body every time she looks at Amun and sees how beaten and bloody he is.

She wants to kill every Lord for doing this to her boyfriend.

Imagine her surprise when Strider enters the room and calls him Amun. Haidee is confused. But she can't help how she reacts to Amun. Haidee is the Hunter that lured their fellow friend to his death. She is all of the Lords enemy. She let the hunters use her as bait. Amun can't think about how he reacts towards Haidee. He knows he should want to kill her but he can't do anything but protect her. These two had a very long journey ahead of them.

There was plenty of secrets and action going on in this book because they had to take a trip back to hell. Do they figure out how to get rid of all the demons in Amun's body? What happens in Hell when Amun and Haidee are there? Is Haidee human or does she have secrets of her own? Will Amun's brothers come to except Haidee or will they kill her no matter how Amun feels about her? I loved Haidee and Amun! She was ice and he was fire. She was strong and would do anything to protect Amun. I loved that Amun could not read Haidee's secrets but he could speak to her in her mind.

Not that she always listened to what ever he told her to do. William is on a mission and I can't wait to get more of that in future books. Paris has seen a ghost and is hell bent on seeing that ghost again.

Hopefully he can stop drinking himself into a coma long enough to figure it out. We also got a lot of Strider keeper of defeat in this story. I can't wait. He has one crazy Harpy named Kaia gunning for him. I'm excited to begin their journey!

It's the next book! I don't know how I'm going to feel when I'm at the end of all the books in this series that are out and will have to wait like everyone else for the next one. I'm loving them all so much! View all 28 comments. Jun 13, Shawna rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: LOTU fans. But color me pleasantly surprised by my enjoyment with this one.

Amun and Haidee have magnetic chemistry and explosive sexual tension, and their mutual longing and desperate need to belong was palpable, touching, and sad. The romance between them is wildly passionate, sweet, sexy, beautifully moving, fierce, and achingly tender, all at the same time.

And did I mention HOT? And I loved all the humorous buddy moments with Strider his cocky arrogance cracks me up! I can't wait for their books! This is a fun, smokin' hot, satisfying addition to the LOTU series.

When I found out the pairings, I was I have since realized that I just have to let Gena do her thing because, hey, she actually knows what s I was originally completely against Amun and Haidee being together.

I have since realized that I just have to let Gena do her thing because, hey, she actually knows what she's doing! Amun and Haidee are perfect together, and I can see now that Strider and Kaia are perfect for each other.

So, Gena, I apologize for questioning your genius. Before I get started on my review, I just wanted to mention that I am going to do this review a little differently. For the three main characters of the book--Amun, Haidee, Strider--I will be putting some lyrics of songs that made me think of them when I was reading the book, but the rest of the characters, I'll just be talking about like normal.

I hear voices in my head The council me They understand They tell me things that I will do They show me things I'll do to you They talk to me, they talk to me I hear voices crying I see heroes dying I taste the blood that's drying I feel the tension rising I see darkness falling I hear voices calling I feel justice crawling I see faith has fallen "Voices" by Rev Theory Amun has always been a little mysterious.

Up until the past couple of books, he hadn't really been around much and, while I had liked and adored him, I didn't totally love him. Well, I certainly do now. The guy's a sexy beast! He is sweet, loyal, loving, fierce, intense, compassionate, and drop-dead gorgeous. And I have to say, he didn't talk hardly at all--except at the end with Strider, the asshole, and once with Haidee--but it was extremely sexy that he was able to talk inside Haidee's head because of their blood bond.

He is definitely the perfect male to be with Haidee and I love how he loves her. I mean, hell! He was willing to die just to be with her! Amun is now one of my favorite Lords. You are exactly what I'm looking for You are the key that opens up the door I'll take anything from you I'd long to love you You are exactly what I've waiting for Waiting has only made me love you more Tell me what you're gonna do I'm crazy into you "Extreme" by Valora I love Haidee.

I remember when she was first introduced in TDL and everyone was hating on her because she killed Baden, but I loved her immediately. I didn't care that she killed Baden because 1. I don't really know him, 2.

I knew she was going to be one of the Lords' woman, and 3. She was just too easy to like. She's sassy and strong, brave and bold, sweet and caring, compassionate and loving.

Yes, she was a Hunter. Who the hell cares! Everyone--except me--is okay with Paris being all obsessed with Sienna--who was Bait, thank you very much!

And Haidee is certainly more lovable, in my opinion, than Sienna ever was. Like Amun, Haidee has quickly become one of my favorite females of the series. She rocks. Jessie Amun is a friend, yeah I know he's been a good friend of mine But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define Jessie's Amun's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine And she's watching him with those eyes And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it Yeah 'n' he's holding her in his arms Late, late at night You know, I wish that I had Jessie's Amun's girl I wish that I had Jessie's Amun's girl " Jessie's Amun's Girl" by Rick Springfield Strider, oh Strider, you drive me crazy!

I love you, but I want to hit you! You are so adorable, but you suck! I am very glad that Stridey-man's book is next because I've been waiting for it for a long time, and I can't wait to see how Kaia finally wins him over. However, I did not enjoy when he was an ass to Kaia in this book, giving her shit excuses. I really liked seeing that other side to Kaia, though--the vulnerable side as she admitted how she felt about Strider, the jealous side as she smelled the lingering scent of the stripper on his skin, and fury, which is nothing new of course, when Amun hurt him.

She's really something else and I can't wait to see how their relationship turns out! I want to marry William and have his babies. He is so damn adorable, and I love that he finally got around to going after Gilly's family. Speaking of Gilly, they are so cute together! If they don't end up as each other's happily ever after, well, I know I'll be pissed.

Sure, she's only seventeen and he's centuries old, but who gives a damn?! It's pretty much the same situation with the Lords who have human mates!

Just wait a couple years and it will be fine! Oh, oh, oh! We finally find out how Willie is connected to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and, let me tell you, it's pretty badass and it just makes him even sexier! The one Lord who irritates the hell out of me right now is Paris.

Goodness, he needs to get over the Sienna shit so bad , I can't even tell you! I am so glad that his book is after Strider's because then I don't have to deal with his shit anymore. One thing I don't understand is why Kane is practically non-existent in the books. According to Gena, his book is coming after Paris's. So, shouldn't he be showing up more in these books so that we can kind of get to knowing more about him?

He's probably the Lord that we know the least about. Ashlyn is still pregnant. Why the hell is she still pregnant! She has been harboring those demon babies inside her for six books now! Only one book she wasn't pregnant in and that was her own! Are you. Shitting me? This has got to end. She needs to pop those damn things out and let someone else have a chance at being pregnant! I may not understand where the hell she's going, but I trust that she has a plan and won't let me down because she hasn't so far.

Now I can't wait for The Darkest Surrender! Favorite Quotes: He'd never hated himself. If anything, he'd always liked himself a little too much. Once, a human female had even accused him of picturing his own face while he climaxed. He hadn't denied it, either, and next time he'd slept with her, he'd made sure to scream, "Strider" at the pivotal moment.

Strider, pages "I'll blame you because you're too beautiful to resist. Because you think of my well-being even when you're in danger yourself. Because you're mine.

So this book continues on from there. When Amun-Keeper of the demon of secrets helps in this mission http: When Amun-Keeper of the demon of secrets helps in this mission, he absorbs all the bad thoughts and memories of Demon Minions,hundreds of them to be precise. I felt remotely saddened reading Amun go through so much pain. We don't really read much of him in the series,so reading this book had me jumping for joy to finally to read up on my favorite tortured hero and his amazing HEA. I say Amazing,cause he stole the spotlight of the series!

Haidee- she has a few secrets of her own,but I'm keeping it to a minimum Let's just say,she is a Hunter,enemy to the LOTU who many years ago killed a very good friend of there's,Baden. Her parents and husband were killed by,who she thought were the Lords,but after putting the pieces together she comes to realize after all these years,hunting and avenging to kill the Lords was a total mistake.

I didn't think I would ever come to like Haidee at all. Now I take it all back. She helped, stole, and captured my Heroes heart. They both found a way to put their pasts behind and patch things up. Their love for one another was strong,passionate and trusting. Strider-Demon of Defeat The only Lord to actually make me purr Until he realizes it was never meant to be.

Regardless of how much he wanted to shag and torture his enemy,he kept his cool. The humor just rolled off the pages. Like for instance, here's a quote that's had me laughing my butt off even after I read the book,the scene is when Strider and William meet up with Paris and a bunch of Strippers: I loved it! It's obvious with all the tension going on this novel that Strider will have an HEA with a certain someone.

I just can't wait! As for Paris,if he doesn't get the love of his life back,I'm gonna go insane. I'm getting tired of the wallowing,but at the same time I feel bad for him. William and Gilly? I have a feeling their story is going to be very emotionally. Someone's heart is definitely going to be broken. Woman only have so much tolerance to hold on and wait for their crush to finally give in and show love back in return.

All in all,I loved the book and can't wait for the next installment to be released! View all 39 comments. Jun 16, Laura the Highland Hussy rated it it was amazing. I'm a Haidee-hater.

And you know, it's not because she killed Baden although that didn't exactly put her on my Christmas card list , it's because I didn't like her , her personality. But once we cut through all the hard exterior and see her gooey center, I liked her.

I really liked her. Amun is one of the ones who you know will surprise you-it's always the qui 4. Amun is one of the ones who you know will surprise you-it's always the quiet ones.

Amun absolutely lived up to my expectations. There's one part where he is thinking to himself that he never understood the guilt his buds lived with because of the slaughter they were a part of right after they were bonded with their demons.

Amun realizes they were out of control, and he feels bad for what happened, but he doesn't blame himself for what happened, and it was kind of refreshing, you know? He wasn't wallowing in guilt Haidee had a raw deal, I mean talk about being a pawn of someone else and not even knowing it!

I won't spoil what she is, and what had happened to her, but crap, man The angels were a great addition, and I hope that Zacharel falls in love.

My favorite parts of this book, tragically have nothing to do with Haidee and Amun! The prank phone call with Paris, Strider and William calling Maddox was hysterical! I love Strider.

No like seriously love Strider. I canNOT wait for his book because Kaia is awesome! Dude, best line "He'd won, but he'd never felt more like a loser. His interactions with William are awesome,and speaking of William The Four Horsemen? Awesome addition to an awesome series. I liked the ending, but I wanted more. It wasn't abrupt, by any means, but I wanted to see the interaction with Amun and Haidee and the lords. Anyways, awesome addition to the series, and if you're a Haidee-hater like me,just have faith in Gena-- she will work her mojo!

Dec 20, Heather C rated it did not like it Shelves: After 50 days of this being on my currently reading shelf, I finally finished! Strider and Paris's books better be worth all I suffered getting through this book. In the beginning, this was one of my favorite PNR series but it has truly desolved into crap.

I have a TON of notes I took over the nearly 2 months it took me to read this, but I have decided not to bore you with everything that bored me. Just know that Amun and Haidee are the most boring couple of this series so far. The entire plot was boring and ridiculous and I rolled my eyes so many times they started to hurt.

Plus, the ending was too easy! We didn't even get to see how Haidee was fixed in the end. The entire scene was told to us by her I did like a few scenes in this book, but I'm not sure if its worth increasing my rating to 1. I enjoyed the bromance between Strider, William, and Paris; they were funny.

I also liked the scenes between Strider and Kaia; loved their banter and sexual tension. Sadly, I still want to read their story even after suffering through this disaster. I recommend reading this book only if you are in dire need of a holistic sleep aid.

I swear that I dropped my site on my face more times with this book than I have with any other book I even fell asleep twice trying to finish a single sex scene. View all 37 comments.

Mar 01, Jen Davis rated it really liked it Shelves: Before I started this book, I had some serious concerns about how Gena Showalter would pull this one off.

I mean, the hero of the story essentially can't speak. And the leading lady is an old-arch enemy who killed a man that he loved like a brother. But there's a reason Gena Showalter is a best-selling author and I am a fan-girl. Not only did she pull it off, but she actually managed to give us great insight into our hero and made our heroine extremely sympathetic.

Amun shares his body with the d Before I started this book, I had some serious concerns about how Gena Showalter would pull this one off. Amun shares his body with the demon Secrets.

He can read minds and in extreme cases, steal memories. At the end of The Darkest Lie , his gift curse? Meanwhile, Strider a fellow Lord, possessed by Defeat has captured Haidee. She is a Hunter, who has dedicated her life to slaying Lords. In fact, centuries ago, she managed to kill one.

But once she is in the fortress, Amun reaches out to her telepathically.

It is quickly revealed that the two share some kind of bond that makes them warm and fuzzy, despite the fact that they should be enemies. In her presence, the torment from the demons quiets inside Amun. But the Angels who have allowed him to live while he regained his sanity, demand he return to Hell with Haidee to be rid of them for good.

I really enjoyed getting to know Amun. He's been around since the beginning, but like Kane, he was kind of like a piece of furniture.

He was there in the background, utilized or referred to from time to time, but never given much of a personality. And Haidee is fleshed out wonderfully. I couldn't imagine how her character could be redeemed, but she was Of course, we had our sexy-Showalter love scenes.

They were good; though not quite as red-hot for me as in some of the previous installments. This book also gives us some more inside into Strider.

I find I like him more and more with each passing book. At the end of The Darkest Lie , I really thought he would be paired with Haidee, but it was interesting to see how his lust for her is dealt with.

It was resolved a little too neatly in the end. But I can get over it, now seeing who his love interest will be in The Darkest Surrender. I can't wait to see how it plays out. View all 4 comments. Jul 27, valee rated it it was amazing Shelves: I just had an amazing time reading this one. I would have added it to my favs shelf if it hadn't been for the ending, you know?

If it had been a bit longer and the solution for all the problems hadn't appear from out of nowhere, I would have enjoyed it even more. It's sad because the book had the potential to be one of the best books in the series.

What I liked the most was the connection the hero and the heroine established since the beginning: She could hear his thoughts and he could not read her secrets not all at least.

I must admit I did not have much expectations for this book because I thought Amun would be a boring hero. Since he first appeared, we never saw him do much, just reading secrets from enemies which IMHO wasn't a big deal because the others ended up torturing them and having the same results, he could only get them faster.

Well, I realized I was terribly wrong because he ended up being a terrific hero. He was super interesting, caring and much more powerful that I gave him credit for. It was great reading from His POV. I loved it when he said that while he knew he was hot, girls would still pick guys like Paris and Strider before him; and I loved this so much because the heroine preferred him since the beginning, no doubts about that.

I just love when the connection between hero and heroine is so strong. We also get to read some about Paris and a lot about Strider. And I mean, a lot, which was fine with me as I couldn't get enough of him.

This was one of my favorites in the series, right up there with Reyes's book.

A few of you may know that I was less than thrilled to read this book. I really hoped for Amun and Kaia to be together and that Strider and Haidee would get a book because of their amazing chemistry in The Darkest Lie.
