Book Review: The Darkest Torment (Lords of the Underworld #12) by Gena Showalter

The Darkest Torment 

by Gena Showalter

"Can Beauty tame her Beast? 

Driven to his death by the demon of Distrust, Baden spent centuries in purgatory. Now he's back, but at what cost? Bound to the king of the underworld, an even darker force, he's unable to withstand the touch of another and he's quickly devolving into a heartless assassin with an uncontrollable temper. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and he finds himself saddled with a bride just not his own.

Famed dog trainer Katarina Joelle is forced to marry a monster to protect her loved ones. When she's taken hostage by the ruthless, beautiful Baden immediately after the ceremony, she's plunged into a war between two evilswith a protector more dangerous than the monsters he hunts. They are meant to be enemies, but neither can resist the passion burning between them and all too soon the biggest threat is to her heart.
But as Baden slips deeper into the abyss, she'll have to teach him to love or lose him forever.

Includes Q&A featuring J. R. Ward, Jeaniene Frost, Nalini Singh and more!"

My Review:

First things first, i have to say that Gena Showalter can create worlds and character's like nobody, OMG i completely forget that when i start a book from LOTU's series i can not put it down. 
I have also to admit that i was not much excited for this particular book, since Baden was the "Lord" i knew less about. I want Cameo book or even William's, so when i learn that the next one would be Baden i though "well let's see". 
Again i could not have been more wrong, i completely love this story and Baden =D i really like his mate, Katarina. For those of you that don't known, i love love love animals and particularly i love dog's, so i immediately feel a deep connection with Baden's heroine. 

In this book we are given a little more information about Hade's and William and i have to say that i end up much more curious about them. Cameo is also mentioned more his one and i think i will really like her story but right now i'm dying to know more about Gilliam OMG i do not see that one coming.  

About the pair Baden/Katarina, i catch myself laughing almost every scene with this two, i love the evolution of Katarina and i really think she is the right person for him, but really she train him like a dog =D what a blast!!!

What really surprise me in this book, again was the final relation between Baden and Pandora, i was not expecting this (and i think i'm repeating myself in all the review but really i could not expect any of the stuff that happens in Gena writings).

These book's always make me feel so good and at the same time so sad when they end, i really enjoy the little compendium at the end of this one and i would like for every one of them to have it also. 

I give this one 4 out of 5*, i debate with myself if it does not deserve the 5* but i could not give it only because there is not much advance in the general story in this book, the Lord's do not obtain a new clue about the artifacts or any other important subject, so i think it is a really great book but it does not add much to the general plot line.
