Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider suffers unimaginable pain when he loses a challenge. For him, nothing stands in the way of winning. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him. Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games competition or die. Strider is a distraction she can t afford, especially as he intends to steal first prize, an ancient magical artifact, before the true victor can be named.
But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter the dangerous, addictive passion neither had thought possible. Do you hear me? You are Kaia the Mighty.
How many Harpies out there do you think could have brought down the most badass Lord of the Underworld? The same Lord who also happens to be the strongest, sexiest and smartest.

Kaia is so spectacular and Strider is so great and supporting, arg! They are, without a doubt, my favorite couple so far!
And let me tell you that holy damn, Harpies are so freaking cool in this narrative I just wish for a spin-off focusing solely on them. View all 3 comments. He held fire in his arms and he desperately wanted to be burned.

About her fatal, stupid mistake at the age of 14, about her lost reputation, her ostracism, her relationship with his mother, her struggle to gain respect of the Harpy society — by beating them bloody. And for Kaia, to gain a new, cool name.
Anyway, the new characters were fun, the antagonists too, except Tabitha, whose volte-face was totally unbelievable and out of character. I loved Strider, loved his honesty, straightforwardness, possessiveness, and protectiveness. He was cool and fun, strong and supportive. I loved to follow his slow realization of his own feelings. They fall in love with each other slowly but surely. The secondary storylines and characters are amazing and intriguing, as always.
Paris… William… but Kane… … just hold on… And Lazarus… All in all The characterization is great and the romance is engaging.
The plot would have been much better if it is not only about those damn Harpy Games! There is action and thrill, humor, and also some really beautiful moments. The erotica was pretty good too, though not the best of the series.
Originally posted on my blog on September 7, August 14, Rereading View all 18 comments. Yet another fun episode in the Lords of the Underworld series. I was a little uncertain of Kaia and Strider as a couple. I also thought the reason for a big part of his reluctance to be with her made a lot of sense. The harpy games were exciting on their own, so throwing in a little extra heat with Kaia and Strider made it even better.
The harpies were one of my favorite parts of the book! They were all so bloodthirsty and off the wall that any scene with them in it—which was most of them—really popped.
In other words, they were a riot. I was surprised to hear the backstory on Kaia. I felt bad for her having such a rough life based on that one incident. Especially when they were blaming the wrong person! I was a little surprised she was so emo about her mom not being proud of her, though. How long has it been?
Either way, showaltfr determination to be better was endearing and it was sad to see her be underestimated by those closest to her. Kaia and Strider were great together. They were both cocky as hell and enjoyed their constant challenges, although Kaia had a tendency to use his inability to refuse a challenge against him when she wanted to get her way.
William and Kane get some page time and it seems like there will be an interesting storyline developing with them from the events we see here. I was really surprised surreder how she seemed in this book. Is it possible that I might actually one day like her now that she seems so different??? That would be pretty shocking. We also got to see more of Sabin and Gwen, which thrilled me because I really enjoyed their story.
His storyline really seems to be heating rhe. I enjoyed most of this book but it was not quite as og filled as most of the other ones, so I felt like I was spinning my wheels quite a few times.
It slowed the pacing down and occasionally caused my attention to wander. Luckily the rest of the book pleased me enough that this was not a huge issue. That damn kiss had ruined everything. Had he kept showa,ter tongue to himself, he could have continued thinking of Kaia as a friend and only a friend.
Now, he just wanted to convince her that blow jobs were a mandatory part of their rhe. View all 31 comments. I mean, I have been waiting to read a book about one of the Harpies since forever and I thought it would be much better than what it actually was. I still adore the plot and the characters so it’s extremely hard to rate a book in this series with a lower rating than 4 stars, still I’m a bit disappointed I did like Strider, I know many just thought he was too egocentric and vane, but I think he was sweet and 3.
I did like Strider, I know many just thought he was too egocentric and vane, but I think he was sweet and surrebder as hell. Kaia was amazing as well, as all the Harpies are. They are just so weird,LOL, but in a good way. Sometimes they make me think about the Valkyries from the Immortals after Dark series.
Now I’ll explain why this book wasn’t as good as the rest for me: I’m just plain-sick-bored of Paris. I’m sorry about it because he used to be my fav character, but I just can’t seem to like him anymore. He just frustrates me and totally annoys me, tye in this book we get Kaia’s and Strider’s story constantly interrupted to get glimpses from his POV, and we only read about him doing nothing but screwing the whole female and male population for information that got him nowhere at least on undreworld installment.
I also felt like Strider kept pushing Kaia surrendee for too long, to a point where I just thd to smack him badly for being such an asshole. It’s like it took him forever to see her, and then form nowhere she turns out to be the love of his life.
It just seemed to pass from a why-is-it-taking-you-so-freaking-long-to-really-see-her to a I-will-dye-without-her to fast. Besides those two points I had a nice time with the book and will be dying to read more about this series as always.

Finally got around to finishing this book–which really says a great deal about what I thought about it. Despite being extremely excited for Strider and Kaia’s story I found this addition to the series to be anticlimactic. Don’t get showaltrr wrong; the romance surrendder arc between Tje and Kaia was tons of fun as, one would expect, but the plot in this book does not connect well with the general plot of the series.

In “The Darkest Surrender” Showalter sets aside the main antagonists thus far, the Hunters, so that the story can be set during the Harpy Olympics where an artifact is to be retrieved. Hunters do make a few appearances but none of them to really drive the plot. They were more like hurdles and served as a minor inconvenience.
