From New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet... Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin's every touch causes sickness and death - and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.
She is Keeleycael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean her end, but resisting her is the hardest battle he's ever fought - and the only battle he fears he can't win.

"Lords Of The Underwold - A Great Series! 👍👍👍👍"
FINALLY, being able to hear Torin's story! From the beginning of the series, you can't help but to empathize with his character because he has the "worst" demon.
That is hard for me to say, I love ❤️ all of the Lords of The Underworld. In this story, besides Torin, it would be the Red Queen. She acted really tough; however, on the inside she was insecure about herself due to her past.
Absolutely! He does project feelings into the characters and you are able to easily identify the character by his voice. 👍👍👍
Touching the demon from within!
Anytime I come across a great series, I suggest them to my husband and friends. They ALL agree, this is a great series (even my husband who is a hard critic!) If you like PNR, then I highly recommend you read this series. 😃
"The Darkest Touch - Long Awaited & Worth the Wait"
Other than Paris' story, Torin's has been the one I have anticipated the most. My mind was very skeptical how Gena S was going to pull this off while being believable and enjoyable. Without a shadow of a doubt, she hit this one out of the park, hands down. Keely is the only one who has come close to knocking Ashlynn off of her top spot as my fave. Normally it annoys me when so much of the book is dedicated to others in prep for their stories to come, but I liked it this time around. And I am hoping when we get Cameo's story, that Lazarus will be her other half, I liked the two of them together.
Though I will say I was a little sad because it feels like the series is coming to an end. On one hand I do want it to but on the other I am hoping we get some of the other Lords stories, the ones we have met along the way who were not a part of the original 13.
"I almost gave up on this series - so glad I didn't"
After a few missteps (Paris and Kane) this series seems to be back on track and better than ever. It’s just a steamy has the earlier books and to the writing style that made me fall in love with these characters in the first place. I’ve been anxious to hear Torin’s story and it is by far one of my favorites. The Red Queen is just as sassy as Anya which made this one so much fun. I can’t wait for the next installment and to see what Ms. Showalter has in store for Cameo.
"My Sign: Cancer."
At last the long awaited book of Torin and in the spirit of LOU it rocks. This book is way better than the last book and was written more like the earlier books in this series. At the end of the last book I was afraid that the girl for Torin wasn't going to be the right woman for Torin, but that isn't the woman Torin ends up with. The Red Queen fits Torin perfectly, but not to worry their romance did not start off without a struggle. I liked Keeleycael immensely she is spunky and full of life. It is refreshing to see someone not afraid of Disease, even if she keeps getting burned by him. As always I'm a fan of LOU series and this book is no exception. I am impatiently awaiting Cameo and Lazarus story, I think there will be fireworks in that story. My favorite book is still Anya's and Lucien's book. Narrator as always does an excellent job with his sexy voice.
"LOVE LOVE LOVE THE NARRATOR"
YES! IT WAS WELL READ. HE PULLED ME INTO THE STORY. IT WAS WELL WRITTEN! THIS LORD WAS THE ONE I WAITED AGES TO HEAR ABOUT. I WAS SO EXCITED AND SHE DIDN'T LET ME DOWN!!
ANY OTHER BOOK IN THE LORDS OF THE UNDERWORLD SERIES.
I'VE ONLY LISTED TO HIM READ THIS SERIES AND HE IS FANTASTIC!!
SPECTACULAR. THE DARKEST TOUCH IS EVERYTHING YOU WANT AND MORE.
CONTINUE TO LET THIS NARRATOR READ! HE'S AMAZING!
"All hail the Red Queen!!!"
Max is an amazing narrator! His ability to make you feel everything Gena is putting in to the story adds so much dimension to an already fantastic book! You feel the raw devastation as disease ravishes Keely time and time again. You feel Torin's desperation to save his friends. Above all this you feel the love, pain, humor, and craving!
We have waited so long for Torin's book and it was worth the wait! There was so much pain, angst, humor, fear and sickness as would be expected but there was tenderness, fierce loyalty and the forming of bonds that cannot be undone, stronger than blood and based on the family you choose. The Red Queen is the only one powerful enough to beat disease down and stand up to Torin's fears and their story is full of such highs and the deepest lows. Keely fights hard to finally have her dreams come true and it is so much more than she thought she would ever have. Torin could not have asked for or dreamed up a better life partner. Keely challenges him like no other could and together they are stronger than ever!
"not loving the newest books"
I wish the newer books were more akin to their predecessor's. I found the heroine whiny and the hero wishy washy. I wanted to love Torin but feel very blah...Gena's writing is still funny though I just want to love the love story too.
"omf'ng great book!!"
it took me a while to finally finish the book but I'm glad I finally got to hear Torin's story. He definitely deserves happiness😍
awesome... I couldn't stop listening to this book.. it keeps you interested... the description of the place and people are great... all in all a good listen. .
