Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Gena Showalter comes a new story in her Lords of the Underworld series…   

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?

was glad 4 legion & Galen's story. I loved it.

was glad to finally hear Legions story. She deserves to be happy after what was done to her. So happy that it was with Galen as well. I wanted to finally hear his story as well. I wish she would have made it a little longer so we could of gotten into more of why Galen did all those bad things. I mean he was the bad guy for so long but you never get a proper reason as to why he did what he did. Still a good listen. I hope Fox's story is next.

Romance Galore

Rating: 4.5/5
Heat Rating: 3/5
Narrator Performance: 4.5/5

Although I feel that Galen and Legion Honey should have gotten a full book I really liked this novella. It had a major "feel good" vibe to it. Longtime fans of the LOTU series have been waiting for Galen's redemption story and Gena Showalter did not disappoint!

To me the best thing about this read/listen is that the romance was wonderful and plentiful. It was there from the very first words of the story. It was present in both obvious and understated ways. I loved that!

For a novella there sure was a lot going on in the story. I think Showalter did a great job summing up the fine points of the series' history so that someone who doesn't know the LOTU series could read the novella, understand what was going on in the grand scheme of things and jump right into the tale.

The only thing that bothered me about THE DARKEST CAPTIVE was that Galen seemed very similar to some other males in the series. I wanted more individuality from him. I'm afraid Showalter's heros are starting to seem the same.

About the narrator...
Max Bellmore gave his usual fantastic performance. He never fails to satisfy my ears while he pulls me into the Lords' world and brings Showalter's characters to life.

Too Short

This was a missed opportunity to refresh and expand the story of previous former Lord and scary bad ass demon. The missing story was seeing Gailen view of his history with the humans (hate, pain and jealously) and Legion review of her beginnings to now (maybe via long nightmare, recurring review in the earlier chapters. This short felt rushed in the end (last 4 chapters). oh well. I still live this series

Love the Lords!! Showalter & Bellmore Are AWESOME. No one could narrate These books like Max Bellmore. Gena Showalter has wrote another great story about one of the lords. I can't wait to read Williams story.

is this even a LOTU book?

I understand it's a novella but the BEST part of the LOTU is when they have inner dialogue, fights with their demons... this never happened!!!! if it did it sucked so bad I don't remember! I looked forward to this story so much but it was a disappointment! and that's a 1st for me with any GS book... even novellas! I don't know if it's even worth reading!!! 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

Gag

This has got to be the worst book ever written!
I had to give at least one star but it killed me to give it even that. Ugh
