REVIEW: The Darkest Torment by Gena Showalter
Given the chance to earn his freedom, he must win a contest posed by his master which pits him again his most hated foe, Pandora. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and Baden finds himself saddled with a bride—just not his own.
Famed dog trainer Katarina Joelle is forced to marry a monster to protect her loved ones. Taken hostage by the ruthless, beautiful Baden immediately after the ceremony, she's plunged into a war she never imagined. Although they are meant to be enemies, neither can resist the passion burning between them.
This wasn't one of my favorites in the series. Baden comes across as the typical alpha immortal with a tortured soul. All it will take is the love of a good woman to set him to rights. I didn't particularly care for Katarina. Until I actually saw where the whole "dog" theme was going, I thought she was pretty cheesy. So as a couple and with their story, they don't rank all that high for me.
What was compelling as a reader was the William and Gillian twist. I desperately want those two to get their own book and I know that is coming but Ms. Showalter get on with it! I'm also looking forward to Cameo's book and to see if she can find any measure of happiness.
Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
