He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world’s about to be rocked.

Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern…until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she’d fall for a kind human who wouldn’t rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora’s box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love…

Sabin, the keeper of the demon Doubt comes across an underground hunter lair that contains a bunch of otherworldly females. Sabin is immediately drawn to one female in particular. She helps them release the females but when he’s about to release her one of the hunters that was kept alive for interrogation purposes pleads that they leave her locked up because of how dangerous she is. Of course Sabin doesn’t listen to the hunter and releases Gwen. She doesn’t harm Sabin and the Lords however, the same cannot be said for the hunter. Sabin decides to take her back with him and the Lords to their fortress.

Gwen is a Harpy. Her name is actually Gwen the Timid for a reason. Unlike her sisters who can kill someone without second thought, Gwen has a more gentled nature. Now that doesn’t mean that if you back her into a corner that her Harpy won’t come out and play, but she tries really hard to keep the Harpy locked down. She has comes to find that Sabin is the only person who has ever been able to calm her Harpy and talk her down from blood lust.

This is another great addition to the LOTU series. We get farther into the storyline of finding the artifacts. There is a run in with the villain Galen, keeper of the demon Hope. And much more progress to be made under the Lords reach their goal.

“Maybe Sabin’s a portal to heaven like Danika. Maybe the Harpy saw a few angels while receiving mouth-to-mouth.”
