Another action packed and emotional installment in this addictive series!

This is a good story, although I didn't love it as much as the previous books I still enjoyed reading it and the series as a whole has become one of my favourites.

I don't think that this book can be read without having read the previous ones. The background story arc (main threat) is still ongoing as well as giving us some teaser romantic sub-plots to look forward to in future books.

I find Ms Showalter's writing style very easy to read and enjoy the twists, turns, action and passion that she fills her stories with. I will be downloading book 5 - The Darkest Passion - in this addictive series. ( )

I really did not like this one at all. This is the fourth book in the Lords of the Underworld series.

"He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world’s about to be rocked."
Not really, more like his world is about to becoming annoying and frustrating, and he begins to betray his friends! The whole romantic care more about his woman than anyone even century old friendships. That's kinda of a shitty thing, I mean I understand these are suppose to be stories of powerful love, but something that powerful WAS NOT fun to read about. Each of these stories have had the same thing. He (whoever the guy is) will kill even his best friends for his woman. And if the woman is strong enough to kick ass too, she'll kill anyone for him. I can understand some stories where something like that occurs, that the devotion is that strong, but the way the romance is written in this series, to me, doesn't feel at all that strong. They all just seem like lust blown out of proportion. What I mean is, I didn't feel the love.

"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. "
Yes, he "craves" more. She's smoking hot, and the whole time he just whines about how he doesn't want her to kill herself like his previous loves. Which is understandable, but (to me) I didn't feel like there was any actual depth. I have had the same feel for every LoTU book. The men bitch and moan like women, and don't really feel like manly bad asses that they are suppose to be. Yes, they are suppose to be falling in love, but there are plenty of other series out there that have male characters who have depth to them, and remain bad ass. Even if they are trying to be distant. Z from Black Dagger Brotherhood is a perfect example. He wants absolutely nothing to do with the women, and he still has an amazing depth to him, even while be a complete and utter di*k head.

"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… "
Right, onto Gwen the "timid". So stupid, she's HARDLY what I would call timid AT ALL. It's so stupid, don't call a character timid, and have her hardly be timid at all. I understand that she feels comfortable with Sabin and can stand up to him. But that happened so fast it just doesn't seem imaginable. The way all of these stories go, is the two spend the whole book practically together. So how about some resistance. How about so actual timidness?

This story continues after the others, with the Hunters trying to kill/capture the Lords. You also find out that Galen, the keeper of the demon Hope, is Gwen's father. This time you also find out that the hunters have been capturing immortal females and raping and impregnating them. This was so that they could take the children and raise them to hate the Lords. This children will have super abilities. So while Sabin is with Gwen, the team that checks out Xavier's School for the Gifted (yes, x-men ref), I mean, the school that the hunter's raise and train the kids with super powers... The others get caught in a witches spell. Gideon, Striker, Anya, Lucien, Reyes, and Amun, were the ones to be caught. So Sabin and Gwen save the day. But Gwen lets Galen go b/c it's her dad, and if she didn't the story wouldn't have a bad guy of awesomeness anymore. right?


/end rage
/not picking anymore of these to read for a long time.

The Darkest Whisper
4.5 Stars

Synopsis
Following a clue from the All-Seeing Eye, the Lords infiltrate a pyramid in Egypt and rescue several young women held captive by the Hunters. Amongst them is Gwen, a Harpy who finds it difficult to control her darker side. Sabin, the Keeper of Doubt, finds himself drawn to Gwen but fears that his demon will destroy her as it has many other women. Is Gwen the one who will finally quiet is inner self?

Review
The Lords of the Underworld are good reads but none has really captivated me until now - The Darkest Whisper is definitely the best in the series so far.

Sabin did not make a good impression in the earlier books but he turns out to be an incredible hero - I love it when the reluctant hero falls so hard. Gwen starts out as timid and vulnerable but grows into her own abilities and discovers inner strengths she never knew she possessed. Her romance with Sabin is engaging and satisfying.

The developments in the overall story arc are particularly compelling and there are many great actions scenes. Showlater is also very skilled at writing twists and turns, and this book has a really doozy.

The continuation of Aeron and Paris's storylines is also enjoyable but the insights into Torin and Gideon's lives were the real highlight. Gideon is another character that had me wary but now I want to know more about him.

So things are heating up in the Lords universe and I can't wait to see what happens next. ( )

Really liked it, but the story dragged a little for me. It was awesome to see Gwen turning into a kickass Harpy and to see Sabin eating his tongue. There was some pretty great plot twists here that made the series even more interesting. ( )
