The Amazon's Curse—a tale of Atlantis

The Darkest Prison—a Lords of the Underworld tale

Once, Atlas, the Titan god of Strength, was the Greek goddess Nike's slave. Now, he is her master. And soon these sworn rivals destined to destroy each other will be forced to risk everything for a chance at love….

Review
The Darkest Fire is a dark and sexy take on a very old myth. A monster and a goddess find love while fighting demons from hell. Romantic and beautiful.

The Amazon's Curse features Atlantis, Amazon women and vampires. The concept seems jumbled, but the execution is flawless. This is a heartwarming tale of learning to love while overcoming the shadows of the past.

The Darkest Prison is the amazing love story between Nike and Atlas, taking place in a prison. This was my favorite story in the book. All about fighting against love and finding that they are unable to avoid the passion that has sparked between them.

This book also included a bonus guide with a very funny interview between Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter and also an interview with the Lords of the Underworld.

All in all, a great set of stories that are an absolute must for any Lords of the Underworld fan.
