Rated: 4.5 Stars
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.
I loved Kane’s book! Lords of the Underworld is one of my favorite series and I devoured Darkest Craving as soon as I received my copy. I have always felt for Kane. As the keeper of Disaster he gets left out of missions sometimes because of his demon. While some of the Lords are able to use their demons as a weapon, Disaster harms not only those around him, but Kane as well. I didn’t really see Kane as one of the sexy Lords in the group until this book. This book made him one of my favorites. Plenty of action, emotion, humor, passion and steamy love scenes. We also got plenty of William in this book. William is my favorite even though he isn’t an actual Lord of the Underworld. Gena Showalter commented on Twitter today that there will possibly be a free William scene posted on her fan website soon. I am thinking it will be Cameo or Torin’s book next. I’m hoping for Torin’s book, but I think Cameo’s story will be great if the guy she ends up with is who she gets put together with in this book (leaving out his name to prevent spoiler). If you haven’t read this series yet, start at the beginning to understand the characters and plot. If you are a fan of the series, you’ll love Kane’s book. I recommend this book and this series for paranormal romance lovers.
