The Darkest Whisper (Lords of the Underworld)
Okay, #4 in the series reveals the torment of Sabin, Keeper of the demon Doubt. I wasn't sure about this one coming into the book, because Sabin wasn't really a big player in the previous books, and I was all like, Sabin who? I 'doubted' (yuck, yuck, yuck) whether I could get into this character.
Here's the thing: my favorite book of the series so far (maybe that's a little lie...I really dug the first one, too). Ms. Showalter whips up an another immortal character, Gwen, to tame this demon. I loved Gwen! I loved Gwen's sisters! These characters are nearly as fun as Anya.
I could go on and on about Ms. Showalter's brilliant writing prowess, but I've said it all before (like, 3 times already) and I'm going to start boring *myself* if I keep ranting on that level. So just let it be known that this book doesn't fail in that area. It's as good as it gets.
What makes this book so *fun* is the rocking twists. I love twists. Twists make me beg for more, more, more! I also love seeing how Ms. Showalter comes up with these ladies who have the power to tame these demons. Since each demon is unique to his demon, and lady-love must be uniquely tailored to enhance that demon. I have to keep reading the series just to see who she comes up with next!
Another solid read in the sexy, steamy, paranormal genre.
