My Choice:

The Darkest Lie
by Gena Showalter
Published by Mira Books
Release Date: June 18, 2010

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 . . .

At the risk of sounding completely repetitive, I am abso-freaking-lutely in love with The Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter. But, I am at another level of complete and utter inner-chaos with this book coming out. Why? It's Gideon's story! In case I haven't bashed it in your head enough, Gideon is my absolute favorite Lord! I'm a little perturbed by the cover -- don't the people who come up with the covers actually read the books?? Gideon has blue hair! AND it's much longer! And and AND he's sexier! ;) -- but I think I can look past that just to actually own and be able to read his story.

I really have to start reading her books. Everybody is raving about them and now you have a new one for WoW.

Gena Showalter is amazing! And that boy on the front is super sexy, which is weird for me, as I never find cover boys sexy.

I still haven't read any of Gena Showalter's books, but I really need to. Thank you for recommending this series. I agree with you about the frustration of finding cover art that doesn't represent the actual characters at all. How do they come up with these covers sometimes? I haven't even read this series yet, but from the book summary and your description of Gideon's long blue hair I already kinda love him! ;) Thanks for stopping by The Eager Readers!
