New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a breathtaking Lords of the Underworld tale about a warrior trapped by darkness and the woman determined to save him
Having endured weeks of torture in the bowels of hell, Kane wants nothing to do with his beautiful rescuer, Josephina Aisling. The half-Fae female threatens to awaken the demon of Disaster inside him—a beast he’s determined to kill, no matter the price.
Josephina is hunted by a brutal enemy—her royal family—and Kane is her only source of protection. He’s also the only male to ever set her aflame, and even he succumbs to the heat. But as they navigate the treacherous world of the Fae, they are forced to make a choice: live apart…or die together.
Hi all! Back with my personal review of The Darkest Craving by Gena Showalter. Which is book #10 in the LotU series... or Lords of the Underworld, for those of you who're aren't hip on Showalter's books! ;) This book was great and it was good and comforting to hear Max Bellmore's voice reading it, as he's read all the other books in the series. It's neat to hear she's up to book #10 in the series and it's hard to believe I've read that many of the books with these amazing characters! Most all of them make an appearance in this book, just as a lot of the others, and I really love that about this series. Showalter even brings in the "high ones" or really, angels from another of her series that is just starting out called The Angels of the Dark, where there are two books, and each of those two books briefly mentions the Lords! It's so clever and awesome when that happens, I love it! Makes things more recognizable and comfortable.
So this story was about Kane... poor Kane! I always thought his story was kinda sad and funny at the same time. When he was in other characters books, and his demon got a little antsy, something would happen, like the ceiling would just crumble and fall on his head, or something random like that would happen to him. His demon is disaster and so small, crazy things were always happening to him and those around him. His story has been going on for a few books now, he went missing and they were all concerned, but he kinda just fell off the map for a bit and now he's got his own book! heh! It was a good book too, I always enjoy anything LotU related! It had enough steamy (though not too detailed) scenes, warm fuzzy, action, fighting and funny scenes to make it really great! The way that Tink or Josephina ;) gets around the whole demon possession thing is pretty clever, so props to her! Anyway, the book leaves A LOT open, so I'm sure Showalter will be extremely busy writing for quite some time! Can't wait! :)
This book gets:
...and I'm really not sure what I will be listening to next. I have several options, will have to figure it out soon! :) Until next time!
