    1. 28th June, 2015 Baden. Really?Where's my GILLIAM? How much longer will I have to wait? Seriously, I'm dying here. -.-Not that I didn't want Baden's story. I just wasn't expecting him. To tell you the truth, I was expecting Cameo and Lazarus, even though I hoped Gena would put us all out of our misery and give us Gilliam. I guess it wasn't meant to be.I'm guessing Baden and Pandora? *speculates*


    2. **Warning: This review will be quite ranty and looooong. Effie, brace yourself! Die-hard LOTU fans look away. And no I didn't rate this down because I wasn't happy that this character got his book before others. I don't have time for dat nonsense.** What to say?Pretty much wanted to hurl this to the wall.This used to be such an amazing series. The LOTU series was my very first PR series, it introduced me to everything fearsome, edgey, sexy, badass, naughty, hilarious Immortal warriors. So these [...]


    3. DNF @ 75% I'm standing on the bus, trying to read this book on my way to work but it will just not happen. I don't know what's going on with Gena. I don't knlw if she's tried of writing these books or if she's given up on this series but the last 3 books have been a nightmare.A very boring nightmare. I'm not saying this because I didn't care about Baden, no. I'm saying this because the plot has been stretched out to the extreme and it doesn't make sense anymore. What are those books adding to th [...]


    4. ** 3-3.5 STARS **“You may be able to survive the world without me, but I can't survive the world without you. We can't. You keep us calm. You are our home.”Firstly, uhmI hate the cover. This is NOT how I've pictured Baden in my mindAT ALL!!! Myyyyyyy Baden is this guy right freakin' here!Secondly, this book was souhmaverage. Baden was just meh, and Katarina was one of my least favourite heroines ever in this amazing series. The storyline started out okay, and went downhill from there. So sad [...]


    5. NO NO NO NO NO and NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THIS IS SO NOT £UCKING HAPPENING!!!I was so looking forward to Lazarus or William or Galen story, which ever works, I'm more than o.k but Baden???? SERIOUSLY????One year, one book . . . and a whole lot of:I need comfort for my another-£ucking-year-waiting:1 star, big disappointment!


    6. So good. Absolutely loved it! Gena did it again. I've missed the Lords and that unique and amazing universe Gena created. Baden won't disappoint you, I promise! You will adore him and Katarina. I do believe everyone will find what they're looking for in The Darkest Torment. I know, I totally did."You may be able to survive the world without me, but I can't survive the world without you. We can't. You keep us calm. You are our home."And, don't fret, our favorite non-couple—Gillian and Willy aka [...]


    7. That's it!!! I can't take anymore. I'm putting this series on hold till the day William's book is released. I've been fucking rooting for Team Gilliam since the beginning and I'm going to be soooo pissed if they don't happen. I don't think anyone gives a rats ass about that but I'm just going to complain here anyway. William is my ultimate favorite character and when he met Gilly, it was all like ''He couldn't take his eyes off her, her body and face are perfection to him and nobody is there for [...]


    8. RATING: 3-3.5 "Glamour girl & Beast" Hearts!! :)The Darkest Torment is admittedly not the best LotU addition, yet it is no less enjoyable. Baden is the highlight of this book. He is all alpha, gruff and I love every scene of his. We also get to see previous Lords and their respective mates make an appearance, and they are their usual hilarious selves. The family bond is superbly developed. The reservations with this come from the plot, which felt stagnant. I felt as if there was no direction [...]


    9. 3.5 ★'s To be honest, I just wasn't crazy about reading this book and it really has nothing to do with Baden and Katarina. It's just the series has gotten to be sooo long and the character's books that we really want to read just keep getting pushed back. Understandable but still. It wasn't until my GR's friend, Lynsey, told me about all the crazy stuff going on with William and Gilly that I HAD to read it to see what in the hell was going on! And as shocking as that all was and with every int [...]


    10. Baden: Formerly Demon of Distrust, Currently Demon of DestructionButterfly: on his chestHis curse: Well, he was dead for most books of the series. He was dead and without a demon even before the Lords started getting mating one by one. When he came back from the dead, he had no demon, i.e. we really do not know much about his suffering. We only learned that he really wanted to die before he died. Distrust also caused his hair to catch fire.Katarina Joelle or Rina: Harmless human until (view spoi [...]


    11. AFTER READING:SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED!In my opinion, this book was not very good. The only highlights worth mentioning are scenes with Fox and Taliyah. The so called twist with Gillian was uninteresting and desperate. William was shallow and full of masochism throughout the entire book. Pukinn and Pandora were mysterious and that made them semi interesing. "Story of Baden & Katarina" was an old, boring and recycled storyline with the lamest antagonist ever - Aleksander. I did not like this [...]


    12. The Darkest Torment, the 12th book in Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld paranormal Series is the story of Baden, the Lord of Destruction and Katarina Joelle, a dog trainer.Baden kidnaps Katarina in the bid to win his freedom from the god of the underworld.This book just did not do it for me. I struggled to finish it.The storyline was all over the place. Katarina is so uninteresting and Baden.well, he and she did not endear themselves to me.Even meeting up with characters from the previo [...]


    13. Okay. So I'm warning y'all right now this may be one of my longest reviews yet! Why? Oh, because this book had so many interesting pieces that I couldn't even competently piece together anything resembling a concise review, so Here goes!!Katarina: I liked the girl well enough until around the 74% mark and then she pissed me off. There were many moments throughout the story in which she showed immaturity but this one time took the fcking cake! Now, her introduction to the story was interesting. I [...]


    14. Finally I finished this! I can't believe I'm giving this book the lowest rating since I first started the series, but based in the time it took me to finish this, I could not give more stars. I think the stories are being repetitive and they're offering nothing new to me. Is Gena becoming more lazy with every book she writes? I'm not feeling the appeal anymore. I used to love these demons and their mates and stories. Now they seem too boring. Paris's story was the last that I liked. From Kane to [...]

    16. “The more evil you do, the more evil you are.” Once again Gena Showalter has proven why I love her books and this series!! When I found out the next LOTU book was going to be Baden’s book, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement as all I’ve been wishing for is Cameo and Lazarus’ book. But once I started reading this book, I could totally see why Baden’s story just had to be told. POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD Baden was such a damaged hero, who couldn’t stand the touch of oth [...]


    17. 1 star - Paranormal/UF RomanceThis was so disappointing, and to say I’m unhappy with the direction GS took with Gillian’s character would be an understatement. I just want William's book, but I'm not sure if I can continue on with the series anymore to get it, especially considering the frustrating tailspin this took for fans like me who want (view spoiler)[William and Gillian to end up together. And things sure aren’t looking good on that front. (hide spoiler)]


    18. Baden?? I'm all for his book but about poor CAMEO?? She's be miserable for so long What about William & Gilly? Been waiting years for their story! Galen & Legion? I thought those couples would have books before him. If it keeps going 1 LotU per year I assume Baden getting with Pandora right?


    19. So.we are having to wait longer and longer for new LOTU books. The last book was released in November 2014, for crying out loud. It's now a year and a half between books.Not only this, but we're waiting this eternity for Baden's story? BADEN?? Who cares about him, and when in the hell are we going to get William's book?! I would even be thrilled with Galen or Cameo's book, but BADEN?! Ugh, so disappointed Gena. Bad choice, bad choice. HERE COMES A BIT OF A RANT!Overall, Gena seems to have tired [...]


    20. ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest reviewI know many people are probably screaming and wondering why the latest installment to the Lords of the Underworld happens to focus on Baden. I happen to be in the few minority of people who was excited that it was Baden and I knew I couldn’t wait to get my hands on The Darkest Torment.Gena Showalter once again proves to loyal PNR fans on why we need to read her books. Ms. Showalter not only gave readers a story to get lost in but she de [...]


    21. -The word of the day is familiar. From characters to plot, from crazy heroines to tortured heroes, everything in this book is familiar. It was easy to read, but that’s because I felt as if I’d read it before. I took my time reading this because I’d seen mixed reviews on it, and now I know why. -The main characters, Baden and Katarina, don’t necessarily click as a couple. Individually, both are drawn with the broadest of strokes and neither really stood out from the pack of heroes and her [...]


    22. 4.5 starsGena Showalter shows exactly why she is one of the premier authors of Paranormal Romance with THE DARKEST TORMENT. This is book twelve in the Lords of the Underworld series and this book might also come as a surprise to readers when they learn that this is actually Baden's book. Baden is a character that we don't know too much about. I know plenty of readers were hoping that this would be Cameo's or even William's book but Showalter takes a different route with the series in this one. T [...]


    23. This is going to be a loooong review because there are A LOT of things that happened in this book I feel the need to comment on. I really loved this book, even though like many others I, too, was unhappy with the MC choice of Baden- a relative unknown- over favorites Cameo or William. I still think that it was a redeemable book and so much happened that it makes me even more excited to see what is in stock for the Lords in the future!! Here are the high-lights: Overall an AWESOME book; I loved K [...]


    24. THE DARKEST TORMENT или Хоспадипрости, я дочитала эту ересьЧасть 1. Трагическая.— Билл?— Да, Гарри?— Что это было, Билл?— Это был Неуловимый Джо, Гарри.— А почему его зовут Неуловимым Джо, Билл?— Потому что его никто ещё не поймал, Гарри.— А почему его никто ещё не поймал, Билл?— Потом [...]


    25. Skip this bookNope. I'm not even kidding. Even if you love this series, no, especially if you ever so much as liked this series, skip this book. It was awful. It was terrible. It was a trainwreck. Baden was boring. His story was boring. His life is boring. His six-pack is boring. But together with that dog-brained wanker Katarina? This book was plain torture. I had to skim most of it because my eyeballs nearly exploded in protest against some of the exchanges. It's true, the series has been trai [...]


    26. To read or not to read? That's a tough question after Torin's book But probably I'm going to read it anyway. I don't think I'd resist too much


    27. Well the gang's all back for the 12th lords of the underworld!!! This is baden and katarina's book ,but it is not the only storyline in this book it also is a set up for the next book that will be cameo's story and we also see what could finally be William and Gillian's story! Katharina is a worthy mate for baden she's strong and doesn't take shit from baden and his beast and she soon has them both eating out of her hand! Bad boy hades is still one of the scariest underworld rulers and he's pull [...]


    28. I did enjoy reading Baden and Katarina's story and now I can't wait for the next Lords of the Underworld books to come out there's still Cameo, William's story to be told I'm hoping for William's story next or even Cameo or other characters that we meet in this book like Cameron, Winter, Galen. I'm hoping Galen's story


    29. What do you mean Baden's book?! Cameo and William should be first! I can't even remember who he is! Just when I found out that the author might pair William with someone else this happens! I don't think I can survive.[image error]


    30. I HAVE BEEN WAITING SOOOO LONG FOR THIS BOOK! AND It's not even about Cameo and Lazarus ? [image error]OKAY then.
