THE DARKEST NIGHT
Dark and tormented doesn't begin
to describe these cursed warriors
called the Lords of the Underworld. Showalter has created characters
desperately fighting to retain a semblance of humanity, which means the heroines are in for a rough ride. This
is darkly satisfying and passionately thrilling stuff.
Ashlyn Darrow has her own troubles--mainly the voices of people in her head that she can't shut off. But Maddox quiets them. Is Ashlyn's arrival a trap set by demon hunters, or is it a plot by the Titans, who have just overthrown the Greek gods? Either way, things are not looking good. (HQN, May, 384 pp., $6.99)
