About this ebook

A searing Lords of the Underworld tale by New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter, featuring a beastly prince and the wife he will wage war to keep

He is ice…

Puck the Undefeated, host of the demon of Indifference, cannot experience emotion without punishment, so he allows himself to feel nothing. Until her. According to ancient prophecy, she is the key to avenging his past, saving his realm and ruling as king. All he must do? Steal her from the man she loves—and marry her.

She is fire…

Gillian Shaw has suffered many tragedies in her too-short life, but nothing could have prepared the fragile human for her transition into immortality. To survive, she must wed a horned monster who both intrigues and frightens her…and become the warrior queen she was born to be.

Together they burn.

As a rising sense of possession and obsession overtake Puck, so does insatiable lust. The more he learns about his clever, resourceful wife, the more he craves her. And the more time Gillian spends with her protective husband, the more she aches for him. But the prophecy also predicts an unhappily-ever-after. Can Puck defeat fate itself to keep the woman who brought his deadened heart back to life? Or will they succumb to destiny, losing each other…and everything they’ve been fighting for?

Honestly when the preview came out and I found out William and Gillan were not going to be together I wasn't happy, disappointed really. I read the book because I have read them all and I'm glad I did. It changed my point of view, Puck is awesome and Gillian deserves awesome. I can't wait for Williams book, I'm now really hoping it is a geek girl from the convention lol. But the book I'd really love to read is Hades and Siobhan, I think that's gonna be a really interesting and hot book so fingers crossed 🤞

Could not finish it. Gilly and Puck had no chemistry. Zero. I didn't laugh like Gena other books. I am not into Goats at all. Furry legs is a turn off. The books have gotten away from the main theme. Looking for the Pandora box.

Naturally, when I first realized that William and Gilly weren't going to be together, I was stunned. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that they were never going to be an ideal couple, because he didn't seriously listen to her. Now that my initial shock has waned, all I can say is that I'm super excited for this next book! It was a risky decision that Gena made, but I'm glad that she did.
