My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The one thing Syrus Alcot, the God of Death Osiris in the Egyptian Pantheon, wants in all the worlds is the woman he loved and lost returned to him. When he gave up his powers, and freedom for a life of service he was promised her return. That was over one thousand years ago. A member of a team of dark gods charged with keeping humanity safe, he leads a loveless existence in New York City, searching for the one thing that could bring his wife back to him, a lapis scarab that was lost to him ages before.
Gwen Stapleton, a mild mannered librarian, is unaware that she holds the key to not only Syrus’ happiness, but her own. Seemingly stuck in a hopeless relationship with a man she doesn’t love, she has no idea that a chance meeting in Alphabet City will start a landslide to her heart’s content. Because Gwen is the keeper of the scarab, and is everything Syrus has ever wanted… and hes not the only one.
An Ancient evil is waking, and its servants will stop at nothing to see it seize its rightful place as the new pantheon of earth. And in order for Syrus and his team to save the world, Gwen is going to have to accept him, and show that love does make all the difference.
I'm kind of obsessed with Gods/Goddesses stories..especially the dark gods, most of them are hot reads that includes hot, sexy and yummy Gods..and this is definitely one of those.
Something Darker is a fantastic start of the Inferi Dii Series..we get to have Syrus, a sexier than hell god..with equally sexy bunch of gods as friends..how awesome is that? I'm not even upset with him having a harem just before Gwen, if a were given a chance to be part of that harem..I would say..oh god..Yes! please..lol
Gwen, our heroine..at first is a weak with a very low self-confidence woman, who thinks that she deserve and is being grateful for having the good for nothing boyfriend..I'm actually happy when that boyfriend..now ex met an not-so-unfortunate-accident. I loved that we get to witness how Gwen becomes stronger and confident as the story progresses..well, if you have a hottie god by your side won't that make you feel awesomely beautiful too?
Something Darker is an awesome and sexy read, I'm looking forward to reading the other gods story..they are all mysterious and sexy..I want to uncover all of them...*coughs their past and secrets.
