Hex and his six demon warriors escaped the depths of Tartarus under Hades's watchful eye to live among the mortals in the Top World. The Oracle has prophesized an epic battle to come—a war between good and evil that will test the warriors as never before.
When Echo arrives on their doorstep, cold, naked, and hungry, they immediately realize he is their mate, and the prophesized "heart" that beats between them. Echo may be the ultimate weapon in the war, but he's also a spitfire, and he instantly turns their world upside down.
If fighting an angry god weren't enough, the warriors learn Echo has escaped from a secret lab hidden away in the mountains, and it isn't long before trouble comes looking for them. Can the demons keep their new mate safe when it seems the entire world—and the Underworld—is against them?

In the debut novel for the Fatefully Yours series, Gabrielle Evans introduces us to Hex and his six lovers. These men, or demons, escaped from Tartarus over a thousand years ago and have been living together topside ever since. The Oracle has prophesized that a great war is coming and they will each be tested, if they should fail they will be sent back to Tartarus.
When they find a man lying on their doorstep close to death, they realize that he is their mate and "the heart" the Oracle mentioned in her prophesy. Echo, as they name him, has escaped from a government testing facility where he has been held since birth because of certain abilities that he possesses.
I have to be honest, when I first saw that it was going to be 8 men in a relationship I thought it would be all sex and no substance. Well shame on me because I have read enough of Ms. Evans books that I should have known it would be so much more than that. That's not to say there isn't sex because let's face it, with 8 men there is going to be sex! But with it you get a unique story with well thought out characters and a story line that is fast paced and well written.
I found myself falling for these characters quickly and understood their personality traits, which for the length of the book and the number of players could have been lacking. Ms. Evans does a great job of giving each of the men their own voice and it never felt overwhelming.
I love when the big alpha male can kick ass and then turn into a total marshmallow when it comes to their mate. The respect that all of the men have for each other comes across very strong and while they may not admit how they feel towards one another, you can feel it in the way they treat each other.
DARK DEVOTION is a strong first novel for this series and I find myself ready to see what happens next with Echo and his band of merry men!
