Review - Darkest Whisper by Gena Showalter

Bound by the demon of doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern…until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

Gwen, an immortal herself, always thought she’d fall for a kind human who wouldn’t rouse her darker side. But when Sabin frees her from prison, battling their enemies for the claim to Pandora’s box turns out to be nothing compared to the battle Sabin and Gwen will wage against love…

Darkest Whisper is book four of the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter. We’re introduced to Sabin’s story – the keeper of Doubt and his trials and tribulations of falling in love without driving his partner nuts or making them commit suicide. Yes – harsh but true. Enter Gwen – a timid harpy-angel hybrid. Always unsure of herself and always fighting against her true Harpy nature. When the Lords rescue her and several other supernatural women from a prison Sabin and Gwen realize they share a link stronger than their own internal demons.

To be honest – Sabin’s character has always been “rough” to me – maybe a little too rough. So I was really interested to see how Gena would write him into a “love story”. Bottom line – she gets two thumbs up. The character contrasts between Sabin and Gwen actually work. He’s focused on winning the war – and will do anything and use anyone to make sure the Lords win. She’s quiet, timid and terrified of her “darker half”. Will only kill if threatened and even then she feels guilty about it afterwards. So pairing up the Keeper of Doubt with someone who’s been doubting themselves all their lives is an interesting thing to watch!

The plot for Sabin's story is fast paced in the beginning but then for some reason slows down towards the middle which was disappointing.  The weird part is the character development between Sabin and Gwen is well written and a great read. I love that Showalter continues to keep all of the Lords – those mated and single moving within each storyline so you can continue to see how each develop. 

In Darkest Whisper, Sabin is able to maintain his kick-ass personality AND be an awesome lover without shifting into wimpy status. Two thumbs up.   Gwen starts off timid and afraid of everything and then she ........ well you'll need to read the book to get her details. *smile*

Get your read on!

I liked this one but The Darkest Passion is my favorite so far. Aeron is awesome.

I had trouble with this one. I'm still not sure why, but it's been my least favorite out of all the LOTU that I've read.
