The Darkest TouchThe Darkest Touch (Lords of the Underworld #11) by Gena Showalter


SynopsisFrom New York Times bestselling 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 Keeley Cael. 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 the end for her, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.

Review: I was so excited when I found out that Gena Showalter was finally writing Torin’s story.  I love this series and the Lords are such great characters to read about and her stories are always entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes emotional, but always well written and developed.  Torin’s story is all of that and more.  Keeley is such a strong, yet vulnerable woman, and she is a great match for the very restrained and lonely Torin.  Their story had action, passion, highs and lows (because Torin kept regretting his association with Keeley every time she became sick), that I wasn’t sure how they would end up together permanently.  The solution isn’t one I saw coming and the source of that solution was also surprising. Torin is a very lonely and guilt ridden warrior who, shocker, is still a virgin! (he hadn’t even “gone all the way” before he was cursed with Disease) Their road to happily-ever-after took them through many realms, dungeons, Hell, ecstasy, and heartache, but they do find it and the ending is great. Loved it! Now Gena Showalter just has to hurry up and get to William the Ever Randy’s story, that will be so delicious! 🙂
