It's birthday weekend! My little Jedi knight turns 8 today and my daughter will be 13 on Thursday. We have an awesome Harry Potter themed party scheduled for Sunday the 28th. Which according to J.K. herself is Harry's birthday. Hayden is getting his own Kindle and J has chosen a shopping trip to her happy place Dick's Sporting goods for a pair of shoes of her choice. That shopping trip will be one of the longest of my life. If you're looking for me I will be the one sitting in the shoe section with a book. LOL
The Darkest Lie by Gena Showalter
Forced to his knees in agony whenever he speaks the truth, Gideon can recognize any lie—until he captures Scarlet, a demon-possessed immortal who claims to be his long-lost wife. He doesn’t remember the beautiful female, much less wedding — or bedding — her. But he wants to . . . almost as much as he wants her.
But Scarlet is keeper of Nightmares, too dangerous to roam free, and a future with her could mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon’s enemies draw closer . . . and the truth threatens to destroy all he’s come to love . . .
I thought I would have a hard time reading this book because of having to translate Gideon's lies. But surprisingly enough I didn't have a problem just a few times I had to re-read a sentence or two but that was probably reader error. LOL All in all I didn't mind reading this book. You get a peak into Aman's and Strider's books to come. As always my favorite part of these books is that the story moves along. New pieces of information always make an impression on the progress of the story. I must day that the introduction of Mnemosyne flipped Scarlet's and Gideon's world upside down!
I give this book 3 chocolate dipped strawberries and a nightlight because if you're going to have nightmares you're gonna need a nightlight!
