The Darkest Torment (Lords of the Underworld #12) by Gena Showalter Review


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. (via Goodreads)



The past few LOTU books have been seriously painful to get through. I read them because I’ve been reading this series from the beginning and decided to stick with it because its end is near. But they seem to be getting progressively worse.

This book is about Baden, one of the immortal warriors who died a long long long time ago and no one gave a fuck about except the author apparently. He kidnaps a woman from her wedding. Granted she was marrying an abusive asshole and she was blackmailed into marrying him. Anyway, Baden kidnaps her and then for some reason this girl falls in love with him! Go figure!

His treatment of her borders on abusive, he’s quick to get angry and suspect her and she still falls for him. This kind of trash is just getting harder and harder to stomach. All I wanted was skip the main book and just read the bits about Cameo but I couldn’t. There are better ways to spend my time… This one should be on your avoid-at-all-cost list. Seriously, steer clear of this…
