Mini Review: The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4) by Gena Showalter

Hello Avid Readers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about The Darkest Whisper by Gena Showalter. Book 4 in her bestselling adult paranormal romance series, Lords of the Underworld.

Last year, I came to the decision that mini reviews are the way forward for this book blogger. 😉 I’ve already just been writing a paragraph or two for my Amazon and Goodreads reviews for the last few years – especially when it’s a book with thousands of reviews already – but as I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go for paranormal romance fans, I thought I should really post those old smaller reviews on here too, right?

I started reading Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series back in 2017 and today I’d like to share my original review about another book in that series.

So, on with my thoughts about…

The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld #4) by Gena Showalter

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…

Another action packed and emotional installment in this addictive series!

This is a good story, although I didn’t love it as much as the previous books I still enjoyed reading it and the series as a whole has become one of my favourites.

I don’t think that this book can be read without having read the previous ones. The background story arc (main threat) is still ongoing as well as giving us some teaser romantic sub-plots to look forward to in future books.

I find Ms Showalter’s writing style very easy to read and enjoy the twists, turns, action and passion that she fills her stories with. I will be downloading book 5 – The Darkest Passion – in this addictive series as soon as my purse allows.

About Me

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -
