Paranormal Romance

Review: Heartless – Gena Showalter (Immortal Enemies #1)

Rating: 4 out of 5.


Vengeance is irresistible…

Kaysar the Unhinged One, fae King of Midnight, can drive anyone to madness with his song. A ruthless warrior forged in hate, he lives to force his enemies to their knees. He will stop at nothing to succeed—even abduct and seduce his foe’s beloved bride, ensuring his own child one day sits on the male’s throne. Except, his prize escapes to the mortal realm before the first kiss, her heart transplanted into a mortal beauty with dangerous secrets…

Chantel “Cookie” Bardot is a professional gamer girl great at trash talking, bad at peopling. After a long awaited surgery, she begins to morph into a powerful fae princess. Catapulted into a strange land ruled by a cruel but seductive villain, she must battle flesh and blood monsters and navigate royal intrigues. But the true danger is Kaysar, whose every wicked touch tempts her beyond reason. Should she run…or descend into the darkness with him?


An ‘unhinged’ fae king and a professional gamer (human) girl? Sign. Me. Up.

Gena crafts the most intriguing, beautiful and darkly whimsical paranormal romances; and Heartless is another genius tale to add to her list of works. From the very first page, I was hooked. This book has it all – incredible fantasy world, steamy romance, blood-thirsty monsters, battles to the death, a centuries-old mystery, and more.

The hero in this story gave me strong antihero vibes. He’s dark, dangerous and bloodthirsty but I was absolutely still rooting for him to win the girl and live happily ever after. In that same respect, the heroine is such a great match for his personality traits that she borders on being an antiheroine herself. Using her kickass gamer skills and strange familiarity of the mythical lands, she’s ready to strike at anyone and anything that could potentially threaten her new home and her man.

All in all, this was a great read. There are several characters who I feel are going to get amazing stories as this series progresses and I cannot wait to see how their development continues.
