The Darkest Night - Review


Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive—and unimaginably powerful… Don't miss a single book in this stunning paranormal series from New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter!

All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member—a man trapped in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger that calms their torments…and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction—and a soul-shattering test of love…

Book 1 of Lords of the Underworld.





Book Breakdown 

I've been getting back into paranormal romance and I've been loving it. This genre is my true home and I'm always happy when reading it. So that meant I had to try this series. I read this book years ago, so long ago that I didn't remember much at all. So I decided to reread before jumping into the whole series. 

Now, this one follows Ashlyn and Maddox. Ashlyn is pretty bland at first but she develops nicely as we got through the book and Maddox pretty much stays the same, just learns to control his demon. Now, the romance in here wasn't as much as I thought it would be. For a romance book, it's pretty plot heavy, which is great if that's what you're looking for. 

Overall, I can't wait to read the rest of this series as I heard it keeps getting better. Plus, there are other characters that I can't wait to follow!

  1. I have heard quite a bit about this author. Good to have your enthusiastic opinion in case I am in the mood for a paranormal romance. Because who knows, I might want one of these instead of a mystery thriller to ease my mind!

    1. She's a good author to start with because she's not super heavy into the sex scenes in this one and I know some people love that.
