It feels like a while since I had a pick of the week post, probably because May was sort of a blah release month. But this week, we have a new Lords of the Underworld book from Gena Showalter to look forward to. It is the first of the series to be released in hardcover, which sort of threw me for a while. This many books in, you would think it would be time to start wrapping things up, not change up the format.
But, it turns out that Gena will be adding her Angels of the Dark characters to the Lords of the Underworld series. I actually am not sure how I feel about this, to be honest. There was overlap between the two series, of course, but to me they feel like two separate worlds. Oh, well, we will see how it goes. Anyways, my pick of the week is The Darkest Torment.
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.
So, what is your take on the combination of the two series? Yes or no?
