Review: The Darkest Prison by Gena Showalter

Once, Atlas, the Titan god of Strength, was the Greek goddess Nike's slave. Now, he is her master. And soon these sworn enemies destined to destroy one another will be forced to risk everything for a chance at love..
 My Review

I think the problem is... Showalter doesn't like to write short stories, or just isn't good at it. The 3.5 book of The Lords Of The Underworld is... well... how can I said it? I really don't have words for it.

The story is a good one, but the way it was presented was lacking a lot of things. 

We have Atlas a Titan God, who once (when the Greeks had the titans captured and jailed up) tried to fool the Goddess Nike. Both being the represents of Strength, they had a lot in common, so she fall in love with him, but she find out he was playing her and make him her slave for revenge. But now in this book the table is at the other side. Being the Greeks behind bars, now was Atlas turn to get even with Nike, and there is where our story begin. 

I have to say the story was really good, but I was left just as in the beginning, just missing something. But well a friend of mine says that the short stories are made to make the readers mad about not knowing more. So if that is really the case, Showalter achieve it. Lets hope the next book keep the path the other books had.
