Lords of the Underworld #14.5
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Format Read: ARC
Source: Tour Group via Publisher
For centuries, Galen the Treacherous has been the most hated immortal in the Underworld. With good reason! This bad boy of bad boys has lied, stolen, cheated and killed with abandon. Possessed by the demons of Jealousy and False Hope, he has always lived for a single purpose: destroy everything.
Then he met her.
Then he met her.
Former demon turned human femme fatale — Legion Honey — sought to kill Galen, but ended up parting with her virginity instead. Afraid of their sizzling connection, she ran away…and ended up trapped in hell, tortured and abused in the worst of ways. Now she’s free, and a shell of herself, afraid of her own shadow.
Galen’s hunger for Legion has only grown. Now the warrior with nothing to lose must help her rekindle the fire that once burned inside her. But as desires blaze white-hot, will Legion run again? Or will the unlikely pair succumb to love at long last?

From the first sentence I was hooked on this book. I just wanted, no, needed to know more. Because this is a novella it really needed to suck me in from almost page one to keep me going and it did just that.
I've been reading and enjoying Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series for a long while now. I really enjoy her characters and want to know what's going on in their lives. They always make me tear up a little then smile.
Like I mentioned The Darkest Captive is a novella. It packs a ton in it's short page count. I wasn't sure how happy I was that they are only getting a novella. I felt at first that they needed a full size story to go along with all we've seen them suffer or cause others to suffer. These two a very complex characters that I didn't think would be able to fit in only 125 pages.
But it worked.
These two show how you really need to read series in order to fully understand or appreciate characters. Doesn't mean you won't like this book but I think if you read the whole series you'll not just like it, you'll love it.
I wasn't ever sure that Galen had a heart or could really care about someone else. All I can say is sigh! Totally enjoyed this one and so happy I read it. It's fast paced and just plain fun to read. I'd love to tell you more but feel you really need to read it for yourself and learn everything first hand. This is a much for fans of her Lords of the Underworld series and for those who enjoy paranormal you really need to try this series.
If you've read The Darkest Captive or any other book by Gena Showalter I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
