Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter returns with her most explosive Lords of the Underworld tale to date, about a fierce warrior on the brink of sanity who will stop at nothing to claim the exquisite human with the power to soothe the beast inside him....
Driven to his death by the demon of Distrust, Baden spent centuries in purgatory. Now he's back, but at what cost?
Bound to the king of the underworld, an even darker force, he's unable to withstand the touch of another...and he's quickly devolving into a heartless assassin with an uncontrollable temper. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and he finds himself saddled with a bride - just not his own.
Famed dog trainer Katarina Joelle is forced to marry a monster to protect her loved ones. When she's taken hostage by the ruthless, beautiful Baden immediately after the ceremony, she's plunged into a war between two evils - with a protector more dangerous than the monsters he hunts.
They are meant to be enemies, but neither can resist the passion burning between them...and all too soon, the biggest threat is to her heart. But as Baden slips deeper into the abyss, she'll have to teach him to love...or lose him forever.

5 Awesome Bad-en Stars!

"Steal the box, they said. It'll be fun, they said." ~ Baden

Gena's talent really shines through in the latest addition in the Lords of the Underworld series. The Darkest Torment resonates a slightly dark tone, with an exciting, suspenseful, and passionate plot. As a loyal fan, who has followed this series for years, I was skeptical about the next book in the series being about Baden. But WOW, this story turned out to be one of my favorites in the series! As usual, Gena's weaves in her signature style, and we get plenty of dry humor, action, steamy romance, and plethora of quotes. I actually used the Clip feature and saved my favorite ones!

The story has multiple POV's, and we feel both Baden and Katarina's internal struggles as they slowly transform, and grow feelings for each other. When they finally give into their desires, their relationship ignites and passions flare. Throughout the story, we learn more about Katarina's dog training skills, and as a major dog lover, I really liked how her dog training plays a role in both of their transformations, especially Katarina's.

While the main plot captivated and drew me in, the subplots caught me off guard, and delivered some surprising twists that I didn't see coming. These surprises really have me excited for the next story.

Max Bellmore - The official voice for the Lords of the Underworld delivers another exceptional performance! He has a great voice that fits the male characters perfectly, and uses the right amounts of tones, pitches, and inflections to convey the different emotions throughout the story from the intense fighting, internal demon dialogue, to the really sexy scenes. I've enjoyed Max's narration from the very first book!

Lords of the Underworld is one of my favorite series, and I highly recommend it to any PNR/fantasy fan. Even though these stories are a romance at the core, they have a slightly darker plot, descriptive fight scenes, and a large portion of the multiple POV's are from a male character's perspective, so these stories can easily be enjoyed by everyone!

A couple of quotes from story:

"Your hardest times often lead to your greatest moments. So get hard." ~ William the Ever Randy

"Only one thing should be infectious. Your smile." ~ Torin

mine:

"Lords of the Underworld, definite winners." ~ Cheri
