Just a quick note!  I am so excited to tell you there will now be a Japanese edition and a manga comic book edition of the first three Lord of the Underworld novels.  You can check out some of the stunning graphics here.

Added note: If you'd like the English versions, they are now available for Darkest Night (part one and two) and Darkest Kiss (part one and two).  The English versions are only available as e-books right now.

Panichaya you're a gem for your post, thanks so much for all your info!!! I never expected the

comics  to be spot on, but I knew the men would be dashing, manga always gives the characters

beauty...and being a comic I expected the story to be edited too, but all in all, the thrill of

seeing the characters as opposed to reading them is in itself a thrill!!!!! Thanx again for your

insight!!!

I purchased 'Sinners of Olympus: Maddox' Vol. 1 and 2 PDF files online from a Japanese site!!!

And here are my thoughts:

 

Let's go with the not so impressive things first:

- It's waaaaaaaaaaaay too short, which led to many important scenes being left out and can confuses the heck out of the readers (good thing I read the book, so I know what is the caused of many events that happened).

-The mangaka (manga artsit) didn't do a very good job portraying the situations. She (or he) tends to rush things in the panels and that kind of makes it...weird...it's difficult to explain...it's like the details (such as characters' actions) are missing...something like that...

- Some of the characters do not fit the way Gena describes them (especially Sabin, Amun,Gideon, Kane and Strider).

-Chonus didn't even show up!!!

-Lack of Reyes x Danica scenes TT_TT (In fact, Danica appears only until after Maddox locked Ashlyn up with the Ford women to protect her)

-The Lords' tattooes locations are a bit off...but I think that's kinda okay...maybe...

 

Now! Onto the WONDERFUL stuff:

-The Lords are extremely yummy looking!!! Worth drooling over!!! (Espeicially Maddox, Lucien, and, well I complained about Amun's appearence not fitting Gena's description of him, but whooo~~~ he's HOT!!! < Though he only appears a bit)

-Cameo is soooooooo cute and sad >_/p>

-Anya~~~ OH MY GOD!!! She the most matching with Gena's descriptions!!! She's playful and a little mean and AWESOME!!!

-Maddox and Ashlyn are just so.........CUTE!!! together.

-We get to see Zeus (though I don't know why I care LOL)

-Did I mention about Lucien??? How handsome he is??? With the scars on his face???

 

 

That's all for now. I will add more when I remember it >_/p>

Note from Gena

If you enjoyed one of my books, I would be beyond grateful if you would take a moment to post a review somewhere online to help other readers discover it.  The review can be as long or as short as you want.  Honesty is what matters most.

Thank you so much!

Gena
