BOOK REVIEW:



This is my first ever, Gena Showalter novel, I have read. I really enjoyed it. I had my reference page , #15 as I used it to remember what these lads/warriors and their demons were. Here’s a run down:


Torin , Keeper of Disease. This pretty boy you don’t want to be touching.


Lucien, Keeper of Death. Now, there’s a fun lad.


Reyes, of Pain. Hide the knives.


Aeron , of Wrath. Well he has been known to lose total control of his spirit, give mortals a good thrashing for their sins and kill.


Paris, of Promiscuity. Trust me at this stage he got the better deal.


Maddox, of Violence. Oh, did that boy have it messy and painful and just not nice, every Midnight!


There are more, but this will do for starters.


The Greeks/Gods , due to an incident with Pandora, another warrior, a female warrior, who was entrusted with a job that upset Maddox, he thought it should have been his, well all broke loose and now these warriors have a demon as part of their soul , something not so nice to live with.


Enter Ashlyn who has been stumbling about in the forest, she hears voices, she wants help. Maddox decides he will go and sort this little problem out but finds himself on time restraints so plops her over his shoulder , dashes back to the Fortress and then all hell breaks loose as this is a strictly boys club at the Fortress.


The Titans, whoever they are, have decided to over throw the Greeks/Gods, not sure why, but they did, anyhoo they have given Aeron a job to see out and it doesn’t really make sense, but if he doesn’t do it..........


The Darkest Night has these warriors on unchartered ground, having to defend who they should be killing, questioning the powers that be, trying to stop the hunters and aiding their friend who will do anything for Ashlyn’s survival.


Ashlyn is a sweet character who has a smexi vixen hiding on the inside, waiting to be let out.


I found a lot of Black Dagger Brotherhood style in this book, I am not complaining, just saying. If you like BDB you will enjoy this book. I think this series will get better. Book # 1 did have some things that I wanted to understand better, but really, who cares, Maddox and the boys are gorgeous and I want to know more about each of their stories.


I don’t think anybody writes quite like The Warden, but I will be giving this series a read and finding out more about the rest of these warriors and who they claim as ‘mine’.
