    Gideon: Demon of LiesButterfly: on his right thighHis curse: Well, lying actually. He cannot say a single truth without suffering.Scarlet: Demon of Nightmares Supernatural ability: Scarlet is half goddess as the daughter of goddess Rhea and a Myrmidon warrior. She is also the keeper of Nightmares and for that reason she has a butterfly tattoo on her upper thighs. Apparently the Lords are not the only keepers of the demons that escaped Pandora’s...

    "Cold metal and hot skin, a delicious combination." The Darkest Lie is the sixth book of the Lords of the Underworld series, the story of Gideon, Keeper of Lies, and Scarlet, Keeper of Nightmares.Scarlet had spent hundreds of years in Tartarus, waiting for her husband to come back for her. He never did. When she finally got free, she came to Budapest to get revenge on her faithless husband.At the end of the previous book, The Darkest Passion, th...

    3 Very Confusing Stars!This was the sixth book in the Lords of the Underworld series. Gideon and Scarlets story. It was my least favorite one and I had a hard time getting into it.Gideon is keeper of the Lies demon. So that means he can't speak the truth without feeling pain that will eventually make him weak. Through out the whole book you can imagine what you had to read. Gideon saying the opposite of what he really means and the person he's ta...

    ^^LIE TO ME BABY!^^4.5Man how I enjoyed this book, it was action packed and down right awesome sauce. I am in love with that blue haired devil called Gideon. The Mr sexy, keeper of lies, which means he has to speak lies instead of truth. So everything he says means the complete opposite. He just met the keeper of nightmares and she is saying that they were married and shared a son, but Gideon can’t remember a thing but he knows this woman, he y...

    One of my biggest complaints in a lot of books I've read lately is the 'fiesty heroine' who is really closer to 'insufferable bitch' heroine. Gena Showalter tends to veer in that direction in this book, and then jerks the rug out from under the reader with a truly shocking twist. Unfortunately, Scarlett continues to be an insufferable bitch and never recovers my sympathy. Another complaint... in many PNR that I'm reading lately is the tendency to...

    * THIS REVIEW WILL BE DONE COMPLETELY IN GIDEON TOUNGE*Im going to finish by saying that Gena Showalter did a terrible job not writing this book. I did think that I'd be able to understand Gideon tongue, but found after a couple of chapters that I couldn't understand Gideon at all. I became confused all the time and thought it was done poorly!Gideon - He was awful. With his not blue hair and piercing, he was so mean to Scarlet and didn't treat he...

    Best book in the series so far funny, entertaining and engrossing 5 out of 5 stars
  • Catherine
    I really liked the storyline and relationship with Scarlet and Gideon, but there was way too much going on in this book. I alternated between bored, irritated, and exasperated as I read the storyline Amun, Aeron, and William starred in. I'm interested in seeing more of Amun and William (especially him), but I felt that way too much time was spent on them when this was Gideon's book. I also wasn't that thrilled with the whole purpose of that story...
  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    The Darkest Lie has to be one of my favourites of the Lords of the Underworld series! Both highly entertaining and heartbreaking, I loved every moment of it!To be honest, I wasn’t particularly excited to read Gideon’s book. I loved the moment between him and Olivia in The Darkest Passion with the panties thing and all. However, I also found his demons, Lies to be annoying sometimes. Gideon has one of the worst demons of all. He can’t have a...

    Well, I think this is the last of the Lords of the Underworld for me for a while. This book just did not do it for me. At all.In this installment, the main story (if you can call it that) is about Gideon, Keeper of Lies. Gideon's character is actually pretty funny because he is unable to speak the truth. If he DOES speak the truth, it causes him horrible pain and weakens him for days. So a simple conversation takes quite a bit of translating. Whe...

    ~ TO PART IS TO DIE ~Scarlet. She's the Keeper of Nightmares and my absolute favorite heroine of the series. She's feisty, smart, loyal, bloodthirsty, vicious, and highly sarcastic. Her memories of Steel broke my heart, and it broke my heart even further when it was revealed that the memories were not real. I loved the wedding memory; that was absolutely heartwarming. I hated how easily her aunt could manipulate her memories, particularly when sh...

    This is the 6th book in Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld and tells the story of Gideon, the Keeper of Lies – he cannot tell a lie and if he does…ooh nothing can describe the terrible pain he’s attacked with - and Scarlett, Keeper of Nightmares – she’s the one with a demon who invades your dreams and gives you deadly nightmares about what you fear most!!! After being captured in the last book by the other Lords, she’s now the...

    Before I get started on discussing anything about this book I just wanna make it known that our "heroine" Scarlet was a great big slice of fat from the annoyance meat. I typically don't really go all "oh, boy! She's the bomb" with Gena's leading ladies, I'm really interested in learning more about the pretty mens but Scarlet was just too much for me and the number one reason why I knocked a star off this book. Another reason is because while I do...

    Gideon oh you sexy beast. He is all sorts of tie me down and spank me hot! I really enjoyed this installment of LOTU. It was full of humor yet also stayed true to the sexy demon lord romance. Scarlet was a bit annoying at times. I just hate when they keep going back and forth mentally about to stay or not to stay. Just shut it! He is effing hot, you want him and honey you know you ain't going any where so deal with it already. I had moments of "d...

    Favorite Quote :"My Demon is a Girl??" Just give this book 5 stars. I don't know why this book not "touch" me like The Darkest Passion. But its still have a great storySo, Gideon is Keeper of Lies. One day, there is a woman, her name is Scarlet, told him that she is his wife. But Gideon never remember when they are married and why they are now life separated. He can't detect any lie in Scarlet too.Scarlet is the Keeper of Nightmare, she can unlea...
  • Katie Michaels
    OK. I have to admit I have some mixed feelings about this book. Our hero is Gideon and as one of the Lords of the Underworld, he holds the soul of a demon inside him. His demon is Lies, which makes him incapable of telling the truth without experiencing debilitating pain. This. Is. Utterly. Annoying. Every single bit of his dialogue is in this absurd reverse-speak, followed by a translation so we can grasp his meaning. It bugged me to such a degr...

  • Lauren (Sugar & Snark)
    I really enjoy this series it is the closest thing I have found to the BDB series by J.R Ward. While still being totally original. But here is the thing with this particular book...I didn't dislike it. The story line and characters were good and the premise was certainly unique. But when the main character can only talk in lies (if he tells the truth he faces unbearable pain) then you have to mentally convert everything he says into its opposite....
  • Kat Desi
    This review is written in Gideon Speak.I'm not going to tell you want I think about this book. I didn't like it, obviously. I hated Gideon. He made me cry with how he spoke. He is also not dreamy. He is hideous. He is not my favorite Lord out of all of the Lords of the Underworld.I also hated Scarlet, who is not totally not bad ass. She is not an interesting character. She grew up spoiled and pampered and I really don't care about her as a charac...

    Why I thought I would not like Gideon I have no idea. I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. I was missing the thrill of reading a book who would get me all hooked like this one did.Gideon was great. I loved him. And nightmares, the heroine was amazing as well. I love A-kicking heroines. I just don't know what to say I'm still trying to recover from all those OMG and WTF moments,lol. So many amazing things happen in this book. I just think this...

    De todos los libros que llevo, este es el que tiene los dialogos más locos. Pobre Gideon, cada vez que habla siempre tiene que decir mentiras y eso como lectora es divertídisimo, tienes que pensar que es lo que realmente quiere decir.¿Y que decir de Scarlet? Pues que creo que es una de mis favoritas, me gusta como va pateando culos cuando es necesario.La historia se queda muy interesante, no creo que tarde mucho en seguir con la saga.

    Çeviri bitti, son okumaya başlayacağım :))Çok eğlenceli, güzel bir kitaptı. Amun'un olayı güzeldi ve anladığım kadarıyla William'ın hala kitabı yok. İkisi dikkatimi çekmişti :) Bu kitap Gideon ve Scarlet'indi. 5. kitapta zaten olayları başlamıştı.

    Μπορεί η Πορφύρα και ο Γκίντεον να μην είναι το αγαπημένο μου ζευγάρι αλλα λάτρεψα την ιστορία! Πολυ δράση και περιπέτειες για όλους τους ήρωες, δεν μπορούσα να ξεκολλήσω. Η σειρα εξελίσσεται με τρόπο που απολαμβάνω πολύ!

    Bu kadar işkence dolu bir kitap olduğunu bilseydim seriye asla başlamazdım.Resmen cehennem içinde kavurdu beni.Gideon’u zaten oldum olası hiç sevmedim!Scarlet içinse hiç mi hiç kahrolmadım..Koca kitap boyunca Paris’i gözüm hiç mi hiç aramadı.Aeron’u cehennem yolunda takipçileriyle çok sevdim!Gözlerim hiç mi hiç Maddox’u aramadı.Serideki şimdiye kadar çıkan son kitabı elime aldığım için hiç mi hiç üzülmüy...

  • YA Reads Book Reviews
    Originally posted on, reviewed by Nichole.The Darkest Lie focuses on Gideon, demon of wrath, an Scarlet, demon of nightmares. We met Scarlet in the previous book in the series. If you've followed this series (which you should be reading them in order,) then you know that Scarlet dropped the bomb on Gideon that they were married. I don't know about you, but that one took me for a bit of a loop. I was definitely caught off guard. It...
