Review for The Darkest Surrender by Gena Showalter

Bought it with my own monies!

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...

I picked the first book of this series out by accident. It was mainly because I was in high school and I needed something to read.
The cover looked pretty good and it was one of the cheaper books.

Boy am I glad that I did.
Gena Showalter is one of the best paranormal writers I have ever read. Unlike those who have series, she does not repeat herself, it does not turn into a monotonous cycle where I know what will happen after the first page.

Stryder has always been a favorite of mine. His attitude and demon just speak to me, mainly because I am stubborn and hate to back down from a challenge myself.

I was glad to see that he was not given some week kneed female but instead a harpy and one that would make him work for the rest of his life.

Kaia like most of the females paired off with the Lord's hadn't had the easiest life either. I was glad to see that despite everything she didn't give up until she had fixed the wrongs that happened because of her when she was a child by Harpy standard.

Despite the twists and turns of their love story it was a great tale and one I could hardly put down.
Bring on the next in the series!

Favorite Quotes:
"Both your consorts suck. Now shut up and move out.' Bianka stuck her tongue out at Kaia ' Mine sucks less then yours,' muttered."

"Well that's because I'm made of awesome.' ' And dipped in awesome' 'And sprinkled in awesome'

"You're a goddess Kaia' Another kiss, soft and sweet. 'Nah. That's just a rumor one of my old boyfriends started."

5 Stars!
