Book Review: The Darkest Lie, by Gena Showalter

The Darkest Lie (Lord of the Underworlds #6)
by Gena Showalter

Summary (from Goodreads):
In this riveting new installment of New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series, Gideon, keeper of the Demon of Lies, fights to uncover the truth….

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, and a future with her could mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon’s enemies draw closer . . . and the truth threatens to destroy all he’s come to love . . .

My Rating: 5 Stars

My Thoughts:

Ok, all of Gena's Lord of the Underworld books are outstanding...some more than others. This one tops my list of faves.

Gideon, Keeper of Lies, was always kind of under the radar for me. He'd popped up in the other books, saying really bizarre and humorous things because, ya know, he has to lie about *everything*, so can never say what he really means.

In this book, when Gideon is front and center, it's hilarious...and endearing, because he just gets so damn frustrated.

There are a number of twists in this book, especially because Gideon and Scarlet are played by goddesses who have it in for them and want to make them miserable. Talk about frustrating! You want to beat the goddesses' heads to the ground, messing with our adorable Gideon!

I adored Gideon, Scarlet, and the whole book. This is one of my favorite of the series so far.
