SHOWALTER, Gena
« on: August 23, 2010, 01:10:43 pm »
Has anyone read any of the books from her Lord of the Underworlds Series?

Just finished reading 'The Darkest Night' last night. I liked it. I liked it a lot. But then I am a HUGE fan of anything to do with greek mythology lol

So if you like greek mythology and tormented/hot demons maybe you should give it a read  ;)

I haven't read any of her books yet but I did read the short story that came out in the anthology with her and Kresley Cole. I liked it a lot, just haven't had the funds to buy the books yet.

I've read some of them already and I like them too. But the story does repeat itself in all books in some way. Nevertheless, the rest of the books is on my Must-Buy-As-Soon-As-Money-Is-There-List.

I am all caught up on the Lords of the Underworld series with just having finished Darkest Lie.  I love these books and recommend them for any one who likes BDB, Kresley Cole, etc.

I love her Lords of the Underworld series. I've onyl just recently started them, but I think they are great so far!! I read one of her alien books, but wasn't impressed. Has anyone else read those??

I am not sure I read the alien books, but I did read her Extraordinary Girl series and I really enjoyed those as well.

I really enjoy her Lords of the Underworld series. I tried to read the first Atlantis one, and didn't get into it really. I read one of her Alient Hunter Series (the one that was in with Kresley Cole's book about Murdoch & Daniella) and it was OK.. not anything special that made me want to go run out and get the series. But the Lords of the Underworld one? AWESOME! I've also read one of her contemporary books, it was really good too!

Finished reading 'The Darkest Kiss' last night. Just had to say...

[spoiler] I feel really sorry for Paris. His curse sucks big time (and I meant that in the unrude way.) [/spoiler]

I know right?  Many people would think it would be cool, but damn it has to be hard.

I have read almost all of them but somehow I skipped two or three. In general this is a great series and she has a few other books I like not terrific but decent. I am always amazed at how fast she writes I swear she puts out at least 3 books a year.

I don't really like the sound of the alien huntress books. But im enjoying the Lord of the Underworld.
I am not really a fan either but I only read one I hope it gets better.

 I have only read one book by her playing with Fire (Tales of an Extraordinary girl series)

Funny, fast, action filled, sexy and interesting...The main female character(Belle) is a young some what dingbat type with a huge responsibility of caring for her father. Her snarky remarks had me laughing out loud.  I found myself really liking her with all her faults. She is working at a coffee shop when something happens that gives her powers that could cause major problems for those around her and the world. Every government agency wants her, some for nefarious reasons.The male Alpha character(Rome) is a strong, solider type. He has a job to do, people to protect and a family. He also has a secret something extra about him. He wants to use the girl to help him. Sexy, strong, loyal, what cold be wrong with that ?The other side characters are equally interesting and very different from the average in this gene. I would like to see more of Tanner, the smart mouth young man.It was a bit rough in spots, not the best writing but the story and characters made it really good. I can't wait to get to the next one.
