The Darkest Whisper is part of the Lords of the Underworld series and should be read in order for the most enjoyment.
The Dark Lords are warriors who opened Pandora's box and brought a curse down on themselves. Each of the cursed warriors now lives with one of the horrible contents of the box in them. In The Dark Whisper you have the warrior Sabin and he has been infused with the demon of doubt. When doubt whispers people crack. Will Sabin ever find a woman who can dismiss what doubt says?
What do you get when you put the demon of doubt and Gwen the timid harpy in the same room? Not what you would think! Doubt does a doozy on Gwen's self esteem, but her inner harpy lets her combat those feelings. Her harpy knows when doubt is speaking and when Sabin is. Soon Gwen's harpy makes doubt timid.
Sabin is on a quest to find some important old relics that will help the Lords. On one of his quests he finds a room full of women who are being impregnated. Gwen is among the women, but her body has not been breached. The men were too afraid of her ripping them apart. Sabin and his men save Gwen.
Gwen has never known her father. She thinks he is an angel. Angels and Harpies just don't go together, but one night her mother was hurt and helped by an angel. In the heat of the moment they created Gwen...but her mom regrets ever letting an Angel into her bed. Gwen's mom thinks she is week and a weak harpy is of no use. Gwen's three sisters are known as badass women. Ones you would never want to meet. They are very protective of Gwen and have been looking for her for quite some time. Those who took Gwen will have hell to pay. When Gwen's father comes on the scene she is in for a rude awakening. Will she ever get to know the love of a father?
Will Gwen's inner harpy learn the control she needs to survive and mate without tearing her love apart?
The Darkest Whisper is a thrilling and tantalizing read that will keep you up all night. Sabin is a super hot hero who will claim your heart and soul. He is such a tortured hero, one who just needs the love of a strong woman. Gwen was all that and more. Gwen needed a man who could show his love. One who could be tender, but dangerous. Her inner harpy wouldn't be content with anything less. Gwen got the whole package and more.
I very much look forward to more books in this series and any other titles by Gena Showalter. Gena has entranced me with her stories and imagination since her first novel. She knows how to give her readers just what they want...kick ass heroes and heroines who find love in each other.
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.
