Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet... Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin's every touch causes sickness and death - and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.
She is Keeleycael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean her end, but resisting her is the hardest battle he's ever fought - and the only battle he fears he can't win.

Lords Of The Underwold - A Great Series! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

What made the experience of listening to The Darkest Touch the most enjoyable?

FINALLY, being able to hear Torin's story! From the beginning of the series, you can't help but to empathize with his character because he has the "worst" demon.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That is hard for me to say, I love ❀️ all of the Lords of The Underworld. In this story, besides Torin, it would be the Red Queen. She acted really tough; however, on the inside she was insecure about herself due to her past.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Max Bellmore?

Absolutely! He does project feelings into the characters and you are able to easily identify the character by his voice. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Touching the demon from within!

Any additional comments?

Anytime I come across a great series, I suggest them to my husband and friends. They ALL agree, this is a great series (even my husband who is a hard critic!) If you like PNR, then I highly recommend you read this series. πŸ˜ƒ

The Darkest Touch - Long Awaited & Worth the Wait

Any additional comments?

Other than Paris' story, Torin's has been the one I have anticipated the most. My mind was very skeptical how Gena S was going to pull this off while being believable and enjoyable. Without a shadow of a doubt, she hit this one out of the park, hands down. Keely is the only one who has come close to knocking Ashlynn off of her top spot as my fave. Normally it annoys me when so much of the book is dedicated to others in prep for their stories to come, but I liked it this time around. And I am hoping when we get Cameo's story, that Lazarus will be her other half, I liked the two of them together.

Though I will say I was a little sad because it feels like the series is coming to an end. On one hand I do want it to but on the other I am hoping we get some of the other Lords stories, the ones we have met along the way who were not a part of the original 13.
