By Gena Showalter
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.
~ 4 The Darkest Touch Stars ~
The Darkest Touch is book eleven in the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter. I have been waiting to see what the author would do for Torin since he was introduced to us in book one The Darkest Night and she did not disappoint.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Darkest Touch. How can a relationship work when Torin is the keeper of disease? I was quit curious on how the author would be able to give Torin a relationship. I was expecting one thing and got something altogether different. I am not disappoint just suppressed in how she handled Torin our tortured hero, the skin-to-skin relationship, and the woman who became his destiny. Keeley, The Red Queen, is his perfect match and oh boy does she have the strength and power to help Torin heal emotionally and save his friends along the way. Their passion, chemistry and relationship burned up the pages. We get a well written scorching hot romance. I enjoyed the side stories and can’t wait to see what Gena Showalter has in store for us next. We get adventure, action, loads of sexual tension, a relationship that needs a lot of work to make it work, and some big surprises along the way.
The Darkest Touch was a great installment in the Lords of the Underworld and I am looking forward to the next installment. This is one of a few favorites that keeps getting better as it goes along. I highly recommend picking up the Lords of the Underworld.
