    So no William and Gilly? Oh, woe is me. After this excruciatingly-long build up, Gilliam are over before they began. In the end, it was all for naught. This is why we can't have nice things, Gena. We crave the delectable William. But instead we get some random dude named Puck. Who is a goat. I repeat, he is a GOAT. Or more accurately, a satyr. I don't want no goats in my bed. (or in my romance novels)Willy and Gilly are endgame, at least in my...

    Let me start out by saying I like most fans of the Lord's of the underworld have waited for gillian and william to become a couple,but when gena came out and said that William would not be gillian's mate, but it would be puck the undefeated with the demon indifference their was a backlash of fans being pissed and they felt that they had waited all this time and gena had lead them on. Well !! Thats bullshit!!! I knew that gena is one hell of a sto...

    Púkinn “Puck” Neale Brion Connacht IV:Demon of Indifference Butterfly: Not sure where it is located. It seems that it moves all over Puck’s body. It started from his chest.His curse: He cannot feel anything. No compassion, no envy, no anger, no love. If he feels anything, he becomes weak. Gillian Shaw—also known as Gillian Bradshaw, Gilly Bradshaw and Jill Brads, depending on which ID she uses:expendable human until she became immortal ...

    ** 1.5-2 "NOPE " STARS ** I tried.I swear I tried so hard to like it. I tried to support Gillian&Puck. I tried to keep my feelings about #Gilliam and my disappointment towards Gena aside.But I'm sorry this is such a poorly-plotted story and the character development is almost nonexistent. There is absolutely no chemistry between the leads, the "romance" feels forced and artificial, William is all of a sudden degraded to an annoying sleezball, the...

    4.5 STARS He hadn’t known it at the time, but he’d waited for her, had craved her. Only her. A woman strong enough to feel when he could not. A woman unwilling to let him shut down his own emotions, who knew the rarity of joy, who would settle for nothing less. Before I get into my review, let's address the pink elephant in the room, shall we? The pairing for Gillian in this book has been a polarizing one, to say the least. Many readers, my...

    Update 28/7/18So book is out, do I want to read it?NO, I would rather stick a fork in my eye, and so would a lot of others looking at the ratings, over and out!Update:Gena Showalter put on facebookYou were not the only one to feel betrayed and I truly hate that I caused people upset and hurt and disappointment! I want readers to know I heard their outcries and I am going to do my best to rebuild trust. I will find a way to make this up to you guy...

    This book was a revelation. In my mind, Gillian belonged to William, I genuinely didn't believe otherwise, I respected Gena's decision but my mind was made up, until I read Gillian's story and it all made sense. If you feel the same way as me, if you feel like Gillian and William were meant to be, I feel your pain, I do. I understand how you must feel about this book too, maybe you don't want to read it, maybe you're done with the entire series a...

    First I would like to say that Gena was once my favorite author. I have read and loved all of her other books/series as well. It pains me to say this, but I cannot support an author who just point blank leads her fans on with false advertising of a couple then decided at the last minute, of years of build up, to go in a different direction. Since book 3 of this series we have been teased with William and Gilly. In the past 10 or so books she has ...

    A goat! A fucking goat is what Showalter stuck Gilly with after nearly a decade of stringing readers along with Gilly and William. Gilly was a breath of fresh air from all the slutty, shrieking, bimbos in this series. And Showalter pairs her with a goat!So she decided to kill the series, which never lived up to its potential (no wonder LotU never went hardback) then she spits in the faces readers who made her rich and put her sorry name out there...

    OKAY. HOLD THE FUCK UP. Now I've been reading the Lords of the Underworld for years. Y-E-A-R-S. And never, in my wildest dreams have I ever thought I'd be let down this much by someone I admired. PLEASE TELL ME I'M DREAMING. (or that this is some marketing stunt and Ms.Showalter is going to turn around and be like 'gotcha!') I know I'm not the only one here who is disappointed in reading the synopsis of 'The Darkest Warrior'. Fans and myself alik...

    Update: So you think a sketch is going to make this situation any better huh? Because i don't know what i need...This is dissapointment made a book. I hate everything about this. I hate the fact that Gilly and William aren't together, that i wasted 5 years of my life shipping them and now i'm so riddicously mad about it. I hate that Gilly is paired up with Puck (wtf?) i don't give one single dick about the fact that he may be interesting or shit....
  • Cali
    Update 11/07/2018Well...i finally read it. I wanted to know how Gilly was going to be developed so i decided to give this a chance. Big mistake.The whole "character development, big, badass warrior" propaganda for Gilly ended up with the poor girl being thrown away in a Narnia style realm where time goes faster, and she ends up aging a lot faster than Puck, so while the goat-man is up to no good, being a mean goat-man and doing goat-man things, G...

    How An Author Kills Her Career Vol 1I’m done with you. Hope you enjoy killing this series and your career. Nine years of a build up and you decide to do this to your fans? What kind of an author are you? Yeah. No. I won’t be picking up another of your books for the rest of my life which is really sad. I remember being a teen and buying one of your books off the shelves and falling in Love. In my heart, and the hearts of MANY, it’ll always b...
  • Emma
    2nd Update: welp. I read it. Not only does Gilly fuck a goat man, Gena takes the only non redundant female character left in this series and ruins it. Gena has a pattern in these books. She takes her female leads, and male leads, and makes them identical. Each and every one of them share the same sarcastic, idiotic humor, massive ego, and stunning good looks. They’re made into “badasses” with ZERO character development. She literally takes...
  • Luckylovesbooks
    What just happened? I can't even-- I'm about to actually cry right now. I'm done with this series- seriously. All the teasers we got about William and Gilly and in the end? She's gonna end up with a god damn goat. I have a teeny tiny amount of hope that Gena will turn this around and have Gilly end up with William, but I really doubt that. I don't even wanna read Williams story anymore. The way he was with Gilly... I feel like it would be wrong t...

    For the first time in my life, I understand why readers sometimes quote a book that is not published yet. I'm doing it now because I am SO angry about this plot! How could Gena Showalter do that to her fans, and to fans of this series? I told myself since the last book that if William and Gilly were not to be together, I will NEVER read another book in this series. So Gena decided to do it. Well, not a problem, an author can do as she wants. I ho...

    AFTER READING:SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED!I loved the pairing. I loved the book. Gilly and Puck's character development surprised me more than Gena's decision to pair them up. I loved how the story evolves and how it all came to an end. In the previous books, Gilly was not that much of an interesting character for me but she grows a lot in this book - and for me it is believable. Puck is tormented by the demon of Indifference and by his broken rela...

    I can not believe after all my time and money invested in this series and this is how Ms Showalter treats her readers. What a colossal waste of time and build up. Thanks, but no thanks. She was one of my auto-buy authors, no more. I might consider reading her other series, but she won’t get anymore of my money - ever. This is what happens when you abuse your reader’s trust.7.11.18 Updated Review: I broke down and read the book (free from my l...
