Publisher Comments:

Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider cannot lose a challenge without suffering unimaginable pain. For him, nothing stands in the way of victory. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him to the razor's edge of surrender.

Known among her people as The Disappointment, Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games or die. Strider is a distraction she can't afford because he has an agenda of his own—steal first prize, an ancient godly artifact, before the winner can be named. But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter—the love neither had thought possible.…

Our Review [by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L Olson]:

There have been 7 books before The Darkest Surrender that kept my interest, made me cringe to put them down, and made me clamor for the next installment. The Darkest Surrender took those things to an infinite level. I can safely say that this has been my personal favorite of the series and Gena just keeps getting more brilliant with each book she writes.
Strider gave us what we loved from him in each of the previous books - an egomaniacal smartass who makes it impossible NOT to love him. :- Like the ending of the previous book though, you start out the book just wanting to slap him because he's fighting the inevitable - his undeniable attraction to Kaia.

Kaia is the type of heroine I love...Strong, independent, fighting personal demons, but not afraid to admit her need for her man.

I absolutely loved the cross-over again of the Immortals After Dark characters from Kresley Cole's series and Gena's Lords of the Underworld. If there were any immortals that were perfect for the Lords, it'd be those girls. :- I am waiting for the day when we see if Nix gets her pick of a Lord; though we're running short on them, since Gena has been finding their perfect matches book after book. LOL.

This book had it all! Endless action, incredibly witty moments that had me embarrassingly snorting my laughter out loud and disturbing the people around me, unbelievably tender moments that were made even the more amazing because of the people they were happening to/between , intrigue, suspense, oh...did I mention the sizzling romance.
The Darkest Surrender was a great set up for the rest of the series as well. We learn more about Paris and his inner struggles that I can only hope are resolved in The Darkest Seduction, and we get the set up for Kane's story as well. It just made me want the next 2 books even more.

LITERAL ADDICTION Paranormal Book Club gives The Darkest Surrender 5 Skulls.

We definitely recommend it for ALL Gena Showalter fans, Paranormal Romance addicts, and even Urban Fantasy readers because there is plenty of darkness and action amongst a multitude of different supernatural creatures in-between the romance to keep those readers happy.

Love Gena Showalter and Lords of the Underworld! Keep up the incredible work; I can't wait to read Paris and Kane's stories! :-)
