A bit of info has started to come to light about The Darkest Captive from Gena Showalter. It will be published under the “1001 Dark Nights” banner, and it is considered a stand-alone story in the Lords of the Underworld world – an introduction for new readers, and a bonus release for the die-hard fans. The bad news? It is due out on December 4th – of next year. Yeah, that.
For centuries, Galen the Treacherous has been the most hated immortal in the Underworld. With good reason! This bad boy of bad boys has lied, stolen, cheated and killed with abandon. Possessed by the demons of Jealousy and False Hope, he has always lived for a single purpose: destroy everything.
Then he met her.
Former demon turned human femme fatale — Legion Honey — sought to kill Galen, but ended up parting with her virginity instead. Afraid of their sizzling connection, she ran away…and ended up trapped in hell, tortured and abused in the worst of ways. Now she’s free, and a shell of herself, afraid of her own shadow.
Galen’s hunger for Legion has only grown. Now the warrior with nothing to lose must help her rekindle the fire that once burned inside her. But as desires blaze white-hot, will Legion run again? Or will the unlikely pair succumb to love at long last?
Are you looking forward to this one? Galen and Legion’s story has been a long time in the making, but I don’t find myself particularly anxious to get hold of it. Honestly, I don’t really look too forward to any story but William’s. This series has always fallen into my “like” category, rather than my “love” category, but I think what is throwing me off at this point is the fact that I have never done a re-read, so details have gotten fuzzy over the many years since I first picked it up. Maybe a mini-marathon or two would immerse me more in the world, and get me more into the swing of things.
