Publisher's Summary

The one thing Syrus Alcot, the God of Death Osiris in the Egyptian Pantheon, wants in all the worlds is the woman he loved and lost returned to him. When he gave up his powers, and freedom for a life of service, he was promised her return. That was over 1,000 years ago. A member of a team of dark gods charged with keeping humanity safe, he leads a loveless existence in New York City, searching for the one thing that could bring his wife back to him: a lapis scarab that was lost to him ages before.
Gwen Stapleton, a mild mannered librarian, is unaware that she holds the key to not only Syrus' happiness, but her own. Seemingly stuck in a hopeless relationship with a man she doesn't love, she has no idea that a chance meeting in Alphabet City will start a landslide to her heart's content. Because Gwen is the keeper of the scarab, and is everything Syrus has ever wanted and he's not the only one.
An ancient evil is waking, and its servants will stop at nothing to see it seize its rightful place as the new pantheon of earth. And in order for Syrus and his team to save the world, Gwen is going to have to accept him, and show that love does make all the difference.

EGYPTIAN GODS ARE HOT HOT HOT!!!!!

Would you listen to Something Darker again? Why?

Maybe....I am really interested to see what happens in book 2!!


Who was your favorite character and why?

Gwen!!!! She was so accepting once she was informed with what was going on...she had a couple of little freak outs in the beginning...and then a little jealous fit...then she was calm...she took Sy at his word and was wonderful...she is a strong, good woman!


What does Steven Barnett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought he was super good...I liked his narration and was captivated enough to listen all day long!


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did...yep...10+ hours...lol


Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This was new for me... Not the PNR, but Egyptian Gods!! Sy and his friends have been around for ages...they are all in search of their keepers and the magical objects that hold the powers of the Gods they really are! They keep the world safe, and make sure evil doesn't take over. Sy was really in the right place and the right time, and rescued Gwen and her friend from a demon...and Sy feels the spark...he offers them a ride home and they reluctantly take it..Sy is drawn to Gwen and sticks around after he drops her off... He rescues her a second time and it all gets intense from there...She learns the truth, and is oddly accepting... I was impressed...Things get sexy, and things get dangerous...but when its meant to be, its meant to be....and in the end...True Love Conquers All!!

Good Listen, and Great Narration..I am very interested in book 2!!!

A Wonderful Surprise

I was given this book and wasn't sure what to make of it. However, I was wonderfully surprised at the storyline. The beginning listening was a little rough, but after the first 20 minutes the rest was great. I am actually going to dig and search to see if the next ones are available. Another series added to my ranks.
