Review: The Darkest Whisper

This is the 5th book in the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter and the story of Sabin and Gwen.

Book Blurb:

Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern - until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she'd fall for a kind human who wouldn't rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora's box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love.

I love this series. :)

I know that these books have the same premise: Demon possessed ex guardian of the gods finds his soul mate and demon is tamed. Much sex and happiness follows.

But even knowing that, I really like this series and look forward to each new installment because each demon is different and effects their male host in a different way. That is what makes this series so appealing to me.

I want to know what each mate is going to bring to the table, how said mate is going to break through the walls that each demon has forced upon their hosts.

Honestly the one that intrigues me the most is Torin. He carries the demon of disease and can not touch another being without releasing disease and killing whoever he touches. I can't wait for his story.

And Cameo, the only female Lord. She carries the demon of Misery and every word that she utters holds all the worlds misery. No one wants to hear her speak - she has compelled people to kill themselves with just the sound of her voice.

So even though the premise of each book is the same : demon bound guy + girl = happiness. It is one of my favorite series and I eagerly await each new installment.

I give this book and the entire series 5 out of 5 stars. :)

Really liked the first book, haven't been able to get into the second book. Maybe I should go back and revisit....possibly it was just the wrong book at the wrong time - it happens!
