Waiting on Wednesday: The Darkest Warrior by Gena Showalter

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

The Darkest Warrior
(Lords of the Underworld #14)
Publication Date: June 26, 2018
Hardcover, 384 pages, Harlequin HQN
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

A searing Lords of the Underworld tale by New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter, featuring a beastly prince and the wife he will wage war to keep.

He is ice...

Puck the Undefeated, host of the demon of Indifference, cannot experience emotion without punishment, so he allows himself to feel nothing. Until her. According to ancient prophecy, she is the key to avenging his past, saving his realm, and ruling as king. All he must do? Steal her from the man she loves—and marry her.

She is fire...

Gillian Shaw has suffered many tragedies in her too-short life, but nothing could have prepared the fragile human for her transition into immortality. To survive, she must wed a horned monster who both intrigues and frightens her...and become the warrior queen she was born to be.

Together they burn.

As a rising sense of possession and obsession overtake Puck, so does insatiable lust. The more he learns about his clever, resourceful wife, the more he craves her. And the more time Gillian spends with her protective husband, the more she aches for him. But the prophecy also predicts an unhappily ever after. Can Puck defeat fate itself to keep the woman who brought his deadened heart back to life? Or will they succumb to destiny, losing each other…and everything they’ve been fighting for?

My Thoughts

A lot of people are up in arms over this book. Gillian had a flirty thing with William, a popular character in this ongoing series, but she was too young for most of the books. Now, the author has her paired up with a completely different character. So yikes for those shippers. Me on the other hand, I really don’t care about any of the three characters at this point. William, Gillian, and Puck are just eh to me. However, I’m ready to see where this book takes the overall plot of the Lords of the Underworld universe.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I haven't read Gena yet, but am hoping too soon. I enjoy PR as well as HR's and any romance,really. But not sure if I will start with this one.

    1. Start with The Darkest Night. It's the best one, and the first one. :)

  2. Ooh nice! I haven't read Gena's "adult" books yet, feel like I ought to since I ADORED her Intertwined series!
