Publisher's Summary

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.

Don't miss the other books in the Lords of the Underworld series.

    Story
    "Next time someone calls you a Harpy, say thanks!"

    Before I delve into my review of the story I want to quickly note that the narration in this book is excellent and very much on par with the previous stories. I loved this book. I love these books. My favorite aspect to the LOTU novels is that although there is definitely a primary character each novel is focused on Ms. Showalter brings relevant story lines in and out of the primary plot flawlessly. This is really effective in making me look forward to the next story since there isn't an abrupt ending of one story and passing of the baton to the next lord. The transition from story to story is much more organic than that, also the author does not resort to cliffhangers and abrupt unfinished endings in order to get readers to buy into the next novel. She also brings formerly featured lords and their mates back so they stay relevant and we get to hear about how they are progressing. Many series try to do this but no one does as good of a job.

    The two main character Sabin and Gwen are a wonderful set of protagonists. Sabin, who is possessed of the demon doubt, is a complex character. While he has the usual alpha characteristics that seem to be so popular in contemporary hero novels it serves as a really nice foil to the concept of self-doubt. Gwen is an amazing character. Her progression to submissive captive to self-assured can hang with the lords tough girl is inspiring and engaging. I don't think I tuned out or drifted away from this story the entire time I was listening. I really like the first story in this series and each subsequent installment I have enjoyed more and more. There is no doubt that this novel is worth the credit I spent on it. I can't wait to hear.

    Story
    "The Greatness Continues!!"

    I'm beginning to sound like a broken record with these LOTU books, but, I absolutely love this series. Book 4, like the others gives you more demon warrior romance, humor, and action. I have to note that the heroines/love interests that are emerging from these stories are equally as interesting and complex as the Lords! Additionally, the stories have begun to include more fully developed sub-stories that thread throughout each installment within the series---I'm totally a fan of that since each of the various characters have their own unique appeal. The narration is also stellar; I could listen to Max all day, which is basically what I do :-) Definitely a credit worthy purchase--plan on getting the entire series once you get started!

    Story
    "No more doubts"
    What made the experience of listening to The Darkest Whisper the most enjoyable?

    Listening to the Darkest Whisper allows me to visualize what the characters look like and how they behave as appose to just reading the book.


    What other book might you compare The Darkest Whisper to and why?

    All the other stories in this series This series seems to be on the more serious side. It reminds me a little of J.R.Ward, Blackdagger Brotherhood series.


    Which character – as performed by Max Bellmore – was your favorite?

    The harpies are my favorite they are bold and don't take anything guff from anyone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, there is a lot that goes on in this story and you need to listen to it in sections the first couple of times.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good series.

    Story
    "Another winner from Gena Showalter"

    I've loved every one of these books (outside the prequel) and this is another winner. Gena does such a great job of pulling me in from the very beginning and writing these stories so that it's hard for me to pull away and do other things. I sat on the couch the entire weekend and got through 2 full books and a novella from this series.

    I'm so in love with the Lords and just can't wait to read the next one.

    My only complaint with this book is that it got a bit too sappy in the end. I hope that Gena Showalter is conscious of the potential rift that could now be festering between the Lords and that she doesn't gloss over it and make everyone fine at the beginning of the next book. I get that they love each other and are brothers and all that, but the rest of the Lords have a right to be mad in this case.

    Also, I haven't mentioned it before in my reviews for this series, but Max Bellmore is a fabulous narrator.

    Story
    "No doubt this is a great addition to the series."

    If you like the previous books, this is a great addition. Don't start with this book defiently needs to be read in order. I like that the story is evolving and becoming more complicated with each book. I was so engrossed the story went by very quickly.

    Others have complained that the editing was bad and that they heard Max Bellmonre request a retake, but that must have been fixed so I recommend to those folks to re-download it to have the better version in their library.

    "Sweet and romantic."

    Very sweet and romantic and absolutely listened to more than once. Showalter does a great job with writing and allowing the timid female to grow into a strong individual and also the narrator did an excellent job in bringing story to life.

    "Harpies yeah"

    I enjoyed the harpy addition: strong indomitable females. Sabin and Gwen's story kept my interest throughout. The love scenes were good too. If you like LOFU series, this is a want to get.
