A mother’s love is her greatest power.
Divinity witch, Desiree Sanders has made a lot of bad choices in her life, but trusting the demoness, Samoan should earn her the award for traitor of the millennium. After several failed attempts to set things right, Desiree turns to the dark, sexy Death Demon, Lex for help saving her son and ending the war.
There’s no darker place than the soul of a demon.
Divinity guardian, Alexander, AKA Lex, has hardened his heart and locked away emotions following the betrayal of his mate over three hundred years ago. Until he meets the quiet and beautiful Desiree, and the walls around his heart start to crumble. When she calls him for help, broken and scared, he can’t deny her, and the urge to claim her for his own becomes an overwhelming need.
Trapped in the Underworld as the war between witches and demons escalates, Lex and Desiree must face their pasts and their fears—and open their hearts—if they are to find a way out. Meanwhile, the Divinities in the natural world prepare for a battle that is no longer just dark versus light. If lost, it could mean the end of life as they know it.
This final episode begins right where Dark Divine ends. With the rescue of Teddy and Bear, Hecate’s hell hounds and keepers of the sinew, from Hell. Unfortunately Samoan has managed to created a dark sinew, forcing the gods to close the portals to the human world. Lex and Desiree now have to find a way out of hell, and join the others in stopping the coming apocalypse.
This is a favorite scene right after the portals close.
Stuck in Hell with a Death Demon without the earth her Divinity half craved… The magic in the Underworld was heavy and dark. She needed to get home.
Folding her arms, she glared at Lex while trying to tamp down the rush of desire his presence caused. “I hope you know of a way to get back home.”
He grunted and pushed past her as if ending the conversation.
Oh no, he doesn’t. She whirled around and followed him through the living room to the study across from his bedroom. “There is another way out, right?”
Another grunt was her answer.
She pursed her lips and studied him as he pulled several books from the shelves. “What are you looking for?”
“A way out.”
Well, didn’t that answer her questions? She rolled her eyes and left the room. Fine. If he weren’t going to talk to her, she’d search for her own way home. Pushing out the back door, she scowled at the gloom of the Underworld. The air held hints of rosemary and sulfur. Reminded her of Samoan’s scent, only not as sweet.
Breathing deeply, she closed her eyes and called her Porter half to the surface, beseeching the lost souls she felt in every shadow of the Underworld to aid her in crossing to the natural realm. Instead of helping her, they attacked. Rushed around her, through her, raging like angry beams of light.
What the fuck? There were too many of them tearing at her. They called her a witch and thought she was responsible for trapping them there. Many even screamed in her mind. She curled into a ball on the ground, her arms wrapped protectively around her head.
Pain rocketed through her, and she screamed out as she blasted the spirits with everything she had stored up and hadn’t gotten to use at the castle. Instantly, they vanished.
Uncurling and pushing to her feet, she met the green eyes of a hellhound. He watched her with eyes much too humanlike. Then a shudder went through its body as it…shifted?
A moment later, Mathew stood in front of her. My son. Her heart lurched in her chest and tears filled her eyes. “Matty,” she breathed, making the kid narrow his eyes in curiosity.
“No one calls me that. Who are you?”
Chest tightening, she knew he wouldn’t remember her. Yet, she had to try. Tears filled her eyes. “I’m your mother.”
When she stepped forward, he backed up, shaking his head. “My mother’s dead.”
Anger rose up then. Samoan would die when Desiree found the bitch. “Samoan lied to you like she lied to me.”
Just then, darkness settled around them, making the gloomy realm almost lightless. The air grew heavier with black magic. It was as if something had changed the Underworld.
Matty looked at the sky and scowled. “It has begun.” Then he took off into the forest.
Lia Davis. Divine Awakening (Kindle Locations 102-130). After Glows.
What ensues from here is a race against the clock. The Divinities need to kill Samoan and get the dark sinew. Then deal with Kahn.
Things become tense in the human realm, as the divinities attempt to raise an army strong enough to beat whatever Samoan and Khan throw at them.
Never a dull moment in this one. As Matthew figures out that Samoan was indeed lying about his mother, he also chooses the Divinities’ side. All while keeping the extent of his powers a secret.
Lots of secrets revealed and an explosive conclusion.
You won’t be able to put this one down.
