Book 11 of Lords of the Underworld
Fantasy Romance, Paranormal Romance

From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet…

Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin's every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.

She is Keeleycael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean her end, but resisting her is the hardest battle he's ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can't win.

I don't know what to think about this one. I actually listened to this instead of reading it. I have to say that if I had to actually read it, I probably would have skipped over half of it. Was it my imagination or has Torin changed? I remember him being all tortured and sad in that hot kind of way that just makes you want to throw yourself at him (disease be damned!) so you can make him feel better. I agree with some other reviews. Keely was a bit hard to take if not irritating at times. Calling my boy "Charming"....oh heaven stop me from throwing something at her! And just what was it about her that made both Torin and Hades go all ga ga! The only saving grace in this book was that we got to see some of the other Lords. I cannot wait for William and Gilly to heat up the pages. Oh well...I digress. Yay Torin got his book...finally. Is it the book I hoped for? Not in a million years. Am I glad he finally has a mate? Sure. Do I wish his mate was more deserving of a male such as the magnificent T? You bet your sweet A@#. The Lords of the Underworld used to be one of my favorites, but now....I'm feeling kind of meh.
