The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld #1)
by Gena Showalter




His powers - Inhuman...


His passion - Beyond immortal...


All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member -- a man trapped in a hell of his own.


Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments... and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction -- and a soul-shattering test of love...


Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive -- and unimaginably powerful...


Don’t miss this incredible new paranormal series from Gena Showalter!




4 out of 5 stars


This was awesome! A fantastic world has been created with intriguing and fascinating characters. I was totally into it!


There was a lot going on and being laid out. So many different characters were in play and being introduced as well as other storylines, I couldn't read fast enough as I absorbed this new world. There was drama and intensity, mystery and a nice amount of passion. I love all the other worldly elements that were learned and how everything came together. I feel like I need a chart to remember who is who because there were a lot of warriors and demons in play. It's a lot at once but it's still awesome.


Loved Maddox and Ashlyn. Really interesting characters dealing with different types of turmoil. They had an electric attraction. I loved the push and pull between the two as everything built and their story played out. I felt for both of them so much, the different pains they endured. The end was heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. 


I am so excited I finally started their series, I'm just sorry it took me so long. It's hard to explain with everything that was going on but I thought it all was great. Love the story, details, all the different warriors. Interesting world. I love a good paranormal romance and I think a fantastic foundation was laid for more stories in this series filled with sexy warriors. I can't wait to find out what happens next.
