Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Lords of the Underworld story about an iron-willed sovereign and the sombre beauty who melts him with a glance...

Possessed by the demon of Misery, Cameo isn’t allowed to experience joy. If she dares, her memory will be wiped clean. With no other recourse, she sneaks into a land more fantastical than any fairytale, determined to find the one man with the key to her redemption.

Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual rules his kingdom with unwavering focus: to build his army and annihilate his enemies. Nothing distracts him — until Cameo. He is relentless in his quest to make her smile...and seduce her into his bed.

As dark forces conspire against them, threatening to destroy the fragile bond they,ve forged, the once calm Lazarus grows crazed. Every heart-stopping kiss and wicked touch causes Cameo to teeter on the brink of happiness. But if she falls, she risks forgetting him forever...

Till I read the part about William perhaps finding another mate other than Gilly. Why for crying out loud does the author get us all invested in Gilly and William getting together and then suggest there is a stranger out there for him-this stinks. I was anticipating Williams book but now I dont think I'll even read it let alone buy it. Why oh why! Cameo's story was a good read other than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cameo Meets her Prince Charming 19 June 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of the Lords of the Underworld and finally, it is Cameo's turn to have her own book. Cameo is the keeper of the demon Misery and almost everyone who hears her voice shudders in, wait for it, misery. She has one friend, Viola, Goddess of the Afterlife, who doesn't suffer at the sound of Cameo's voice.

Cameo goes looking for Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual, because friends have told her she has met him twice and she has slivers of memories of him. Seems her demon likes to erase her memories so she isn't sure of anything except wanting to find him.

Lazarus in now King of the Realm of Grimm and Fantica and seems to be unaffected by her voice. And he is definitely attracted to Cameo. This is such a sweet story as the feared Lazarus courts Cameo, and as Cameo's demon tries to keep her too miserable to accept Lazarus' interest in her.

Cameo holds the demon of Misery inside her. Her words cause people to weep and being around her leads to depression. Searching out Lazarus, she wants to remember the missing memories Misery wiped from her mind.

The book starts out slow as it took me a bit to get into understanding the comments coming from Misery and how they sent Cameo off. But once Cameo and Lazarus connect, the story gets hot and the suspense builds. Each of them have a secret which they are unwilling to share. They don't trust and yet we all know how trust is important in love.

For fans of the series, the original characters are back and we get to see where the battle is heading between Hades and Lucifer. Looks like Ms. Showalter has some more stories to tell!

Cameo and Lazarus I so cheered for them throughout this entire story. These 2 together deserves some kind of happiness. I needed to get more information on the other characters but not much was said. Viola though now there is a lady who deserves her own story. Great to see the Sent Ones again.
Will I re-read probably not. Do I recommend- Yes. It helps with the series.
Enjoy
5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A fiery passion Cameo can't live without! 16 June 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As the Mother of Misery, Cameo, navigates the nightmare Wonderland Lazarus rules, she proves over and over she's no delicate Alice. A vixen intent on answers and a ruthless King who's passion for vengeance can only be trumped by his obsession for her. Lazarus is a male above all others, a true beast of strength and masculinity, unlike the Lord's, his character is rarely broken by his emotions, but he's continually challenged by the strength and wit of Cameo, who struggles to accept that perhaps he could truly bring her pleasure that can't be forgotten. This book is FULL of action, chemistry, adventures and twists. The tension and chemistry keeps your blood heated from beginning to end. Definitely a fun, satisfying 5 star read.
