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…
THE DARKEST WHISPER is the fourth book within the Lords of the Underworld series. It focuses on Sabin, the keeper of Doubt. For the past couple hundred years, he has lead a separate group of the Lords of the Underworld and he will do anything to save his brothers from the human hunters that want to destroy the Lords. He was the typical alpha male, but he had his sensitive moments and I really liked his character.
Sabin located one of the hunter’s strong holds and after launching an attack he finds a beautiful redheaded captive that, sadly, the hunters had been experimenting on/torturing.
Gwen is timid and tries her best to hide her darker side. As a Harpy, her strength rivals even the Lords of the Underworld. I really enjoyed Gwen and I felt she was fantastic match for Sabin. I love it when an author shows a character coming into her own and developing his/ her personality.
Unlike the previous books within the series, this one didn’t have a lot of action and the couple seemed…removed from the rest of the story. As I was reading, it felt as if the world building and the arc of the story was sort of thrown in and the romance…was support or back up…I’m not sure which. At one moment I felt as if I was reading two different books. The ending also wasn’t solid, but then again, this is a series so perhaps there will be some closure later.
I will definitely read more of this series!
