Lucinda, Darkly   description:

For centuries, Lucinda has endured her agonizing reality. As daughter of the High Lord of Hell,she rules over nothing, retrieving the occasional wayward demon and feeding off of the savage Monere-of whom she was a member before she died.

Then she encounters the Monere warrior Stefan, who offers himself to her. She is moved beyond measure by her desire for him-and soon finds herself drawn back into the heady eroticism of the Monere. There, she must carve out a home between the jealousy of the dead and the violence of the living, if she is to keep her newfound love-and life…

lucindaBOOK 1: Lucinda, Darkly  4 STARS

This is in the same world as the Monere, and the reason I linked the first 2 books because you need to read them before this, and book 3 talks about Lucinda, and so you might want to know about Lucinda before then. While the Monere is more paranormal, this really feels more fantasy. We get to see much more of Hell, and learn about other realms, and creatures, and even the wars that have been fought down there. Lucinda is interesting, and complicated, and dealing with her own issues and insecurities, and now she’s having to figure out why people who should fear are falling in love with her. More so, the one thing I like about this book and even the others by Sunny, is they show men as having insecurities as well, and not always being the sexxy hot guy who knows all the right moves. It’s nice, because we all deal with that and I feel it actually makes the story more realistic. What I don’t like about this book, is that it switches from 1st to 3rd person and different intervals. It does do good to see things in 3rd person, because you get to see what’s going on with Stefan and Nico when Lucinda isn’t around, but I would’ve preferred having it all in 3rd person, since there’s then nothing specifically to be gained from the moments when it is in 1st person. Altogether, though, it’s a great book.
