Monére, Children of the Moon Series#6
-Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!
On the vernal equinox, Mona Lisa is taken against her will to NetherHell, the cursed realm of the damned. In this place, she will be torn from both within and without by desire, love, and ecstasy. And when her first love crosses the boundaries of the world to rescue her, she must choose her own destiny—before others choose it for her.
Mona Lisa Darkening is the fourth book in the Monère, Dark Fantasy, paranormal romance series. When I first read Mona Lisa Awakening, I was shocked that I haven't heard of this series more than I did. I instantly loved it and found the characters very likable. The characters are one of my favorite things about this series. Halcyon is my favorite. I love Gryphon and everyone else, but I still keep going back to Halcyon. He's unique.
The heroine, Mona Lisa is a mixed-blood queen among the Monére. As children of the moon, they gather to bask in its light when the moon is full to derive energy. the night of the vernal equinox(a very special night for the Monere), when the barriers between both worlds become thin, she gathers her people under the full moon. But, instead of drawing in it's white light, the darkness envelopes and snatches her and she's transported to NetherHell, the realm of the damned...Even the Crown Prince of Hell, Halcyon, dares not go.
I honestly LOVED Sunny's NetherHell idea. I felt that when she described it, I really was there. (Not that I want to be there). She has a was of describing a scene, that fits to a T. While Mona Lisa is fighting hard to survive in NetherHell, she is captured by a gargoyle warlord named Gordane. AND. if that's not bad enough, her true love, Gryphon, has recently been killed and is now in the realm of hell. She's also sharing her body with the spirit of his killer, Mona Louisa.
Mona Lisa is having a hard go, and things seem to just pile up on her shoulders, but being the strong Lady she is, she will fight to make it through.. I hope..
Her books are very imaginative and filled with fantasy. You won't be let down with the amazing characters and erotic scenes. It really is an amazing original series, that will keep you up all night long!
