Review: The Darkest Passion by Gena Showalter

For weeks, the immortal warrior Aeron has sensed an invisible female presence. An angel-demon-assassin has been sent to kill him. Or has she? Olivia claims she fell from the heavens, giving up immortality because she couldn't bear to harm him. But trusting - and falling for - Olivia will endanger them all. So how has this mortal with the huge blue eyes already unleashed Aeron's darkest passion? Now, with an enemy hot on his trail and his faithful demon companion determined to remove Olivia from his life, Aeron is trapped between duty and consuming desire. Worse still, a new executioner has been sent to do the job Olivia wouldn't...
My Review 

Today I don't feel like doing a review, but I had to do it or I wil totally get the books mix! =)

So in this book we have the mighty Aeron, the Lord who is always thinking about everyone else before he thinks of himself, the one who has tattoos all over his body to make him remember of all the crimes he committed through the years. In The Darkest Night, Aeron was order to kill Danika, which is the one and only for Reyes, in the past books we have read how Aeron have fight his bloodlust to kill Danika and her family, and how he asked to be lock up. And how Paris sacrifice in The Darkest Pleasure got Aeron out of the bloodlust. So we have had him struggle with his guilt of being very near to killing Danika, and only Legion make him feel better, but in the last number of weeks that hadn't help, Legion being scared away by a presence who has been following Aeron.

Olivia was ordered to kill Aeron, since his bond with Legion freed Legion from hell, and that was a heavenly law that no one could break. She kept an eye on him over time and decided she couldn't do it, instead she made the decision to give up her wings in order to be with him. Something her mentor Lysander wasn't much happy about. And neither was Legion, since she wanted Aeron all for herself.

So what can I say? This book was amazing, seeing how sweet Olivia grew up some balls, and fight for what she believe and what she wanted was incredible. And seeing Aeron struggle with falling in love, and still think about his duties.

Really this book was funny, entertaining and full of action. Again Showalter have a amazing way to keep you focus in the main story, but at the same time she fills you up with what is happening with all the Lords.

Have to say this series get better with every book, and its getting hell messy. Don't know what the hell she is gonna do to fix this mess. Ready for the next one.
