Review: The Darkest Whisper by Gena Showalter

The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4)
by Gena Showalter
Purchase Links: Amazon   Barnes & Noble

He is the keeper of Doubt and his entire world’s about to be rocked.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…


My Thoughts:

First off I fell in love with LOTU when it first came out with The Darkest Night back in 2008. I enjoyed The Darkest Kiss #2 and The Darkest Pleasure (Loved Reyes story).

I have books up to The Darkest Surrender and was excited to get back to this series and catch up with the sexy LOTU heroes, as it as been ages since I have read them.

I was a little disappointed with The Darkest Whisper. For me I did not have any connection with Sabin and Gwen. Their characters were a bit flat. Sabin is possessed by demon “Doubt” so I really thought this book was going to have a lot of different emotions. Unfortunately there was not enough depth in the writing and could not get into his feelings.

What I loved about The Darkest Whisper was we got to see Aeron, Legion and Paris. I adore all of them and can not wait to read their stories. Up next is Aeron and his little demon friend Legion in The Darkest Passion. I am curious how she is going to handle Aeron having feelings for someone. She can be a tad possessive.
I am a huge fan of Gena Showalter and I look forward reading the rest of the LOTU heroes. If reading this series I highly recommend reading in order. Even though I did not enjoy this book as much as the others I would still recommend reading it because we get some insight on Aeron and Paris and get ready for their adventure.



  1. I didn't like Sabin's book either. Gwen also got on my last nerves and I hated how she suddenly ended up being so badass in the end when the entire book she was the meekest little thing.

    On the bright side, Aeron and Olivia's story is one of my favorite in the series! So I hope you enjoy it too!

    1. Yeah I did not enjoy Gwen at all. I am so happy I am not the only one that did not like it as much as the others.

      I am so happy to hear Aeron and Olivia story is good. He is one of my favorite LOTU heroes. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are enjoying your sunday.
