Title: The Darkest Captive
Series: Lords of the Underworld #14.5
Author: Gena Showalter
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release date: 4 December 2018

Synopsis
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gena Showalter comes a new story in her Lords of the Underworld series… 

For centuries, Galen the Treacherous has been the most hated immortal in the Underworld. With good reason! This bad boy of bad boys has lied, stolen, cheated and killed with abandon. Possessed by the demons of Jealousy and False Hope, he has always lived for a single purpose: destroy everything.

Then he met her.

Former demon turned human femme fatale — Legion Honey — sought to kill Galen, but ended up parting with her virginity instead. Afraid of their sizzling connection, she ran away…and ended up trapped in hell, tortured and abused in the worst of ways. Now she’s free, and a shell of herself, afraid of her own shadow.

Galen’s hunger for Legion has only grown. Now the warrior with nothing to lose must help her rekindle the fire that once burned inside her. But as desires blaze white-hot, will Legion run again? Or will the unlikely pair succumb to love at long last?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**



Review
The Darkest Captive tells the story of Galen and Legion. Galen’s been attracted to Legion for such a long time and now that she’s free, Galen hopes to make Legion fall for him.

It was so nice to finally come back to the Lords of the Underworld series. I really missed this world because I only read the first three books a few years back. I only read those 3 books because back then I only read Dutch books and they only translated the first 3 books, at least the paperback editions. I was a bit scared to read The Darkest Captive because it’s often hard to read a series when you’re used to reading it in Dutch. I did, however, enjoy reading The Darkest Captive in English and I’m looking forward to reading all the other books in English!

Now back to The Darkest Captive. I only read the first 3 books, so I don’t know every character of everything that happened, and that wasn’t a problem at all. Like mentioned in the synopsis, every 1001 Dark Nights novella is meant to be a standalone but it’s also a bonus for those who read the other books. I really liked this novella because it was so short, but also so fast paced. The story was amazing and I couldn’t get enough of Galen!

Galen and Legion are amazing characters. It’s not always easy to see character development in novellas because they’re meant to be short. Sometimes novellas can be really predictive or just not well written because they have to be short. The Darkest Captive was such a good novella, Galen and Legion are so funny and I just love them!

Lords of the Underworld is such an amazing Paranormal Romance series and I love that every book focuses on a different lord and his mate, and I think that this series is so original. I love Gena Showalter’s books and I cannot wait to read the other books in the Lords of the Underworld series!

Bring Me Home is a New Adult Romance book about college, friends and love. 
I really love reading books that take place during college because I’m still a college student, so Bring Me Home was the perfect read for me.

Bring Me Home is Bree Howland’s debut novel and I really enjoyed reading it. The story is so fast paced, and I couldn’t stop reading. I finished this book in one day because it was just that good. Bring Me Home has an amazing plot, lovable characters and I couldn’t get enough of it.

Kailey and Cole are both so adorable I could really relate to Kailey in so many ways and Cole was such a cute book boyfriend. I also really liked Riley and Annabeth. Damian was a bit mysterious and I would love to know more about him!

I really loved Bring Me Home and I cannot wait to read more written by Bree Howland!
