The Darkest Prison
Note: This review focuses solely on the third story of this book featuring Atlas and Nike. You can see the first part of this review about "The Darkest Fire" here, and the second part of this review about "The Amazon's Curse" here.
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Lords of the Underworld
This was the perfect length, with the perfect ending.
Nike, Greek goddess of strength and victory, and Atlas, Titan god of strength, were always rivals. When the Titans were locked away in Tartarus, Nike enjoyed taunting the god, proving that she was far superior.
Upon the defeat of the Greeks, Atlas was sure he would have revenge. What better way to extract that revenge then to brand Nike the way she branded him ages ago? However, upon glimpsing his name on her back, Atlas is starting to have second thoughts about revenge.
The Darkest Prison was my favorite short story out of the three that were provided in this book. Despite introducing new characters for readers, the love that blossomed betwixt Nike and Atlas was neither rushed nor unbelievable. I was left feeling satisfied and, once again, begging for more.
These two immortals live up to their arrogant reputations, while also revealing a more vulnerable side. I believe that the combination of the two--especially the alpha male and female clashing heads--is what made their tale a successful one. It will be interesting to see what Gena will do in her future Lords of the Underworld books--especially considering the outcome of this tale.
Into the Dark is well worth reading. I will be buying a copy of this when it comes out on April 27th.
