  • Sophia Triad
    Galen:Demon of False Hope and Jealousy. Butterfly: Two of them actually that represent his two demons. On his chest.His curse: He perverted true hope, inciting fear—a twisted hope for the worst to happen. He was mistaken for a pure angel with his angelic face and his white wings, but he only gave distraction from the true purpose and unfulfilled gratitude for something that you want and most probably will never happen. Adding to that the jealou...

    Legion was raped in hell by a horde of demons.Galen was the villain of the series for nine books.How are they going to develop their story in a decent way if they only got a novella?

    4 STARS Galen might have been created for war, but he lived for Leila. Years. YEARS I've been waiting for Galen and Legion's story. It's been the most torturously painful foreplay right after William (and now Hades). What I'm trying to tell you here, is that I NEEDED their book. And while I was definitely disappointed we wouldn't be getting a full novel for them, the novella was still satisfying enough to appease this reader. She had the face...

    AFTER READING:SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED!This novella was not enough for the two complex characters that were featured. Legion, a minor demon of Strife and Galen, Keeper of Jealousy & False Hope had so much unexplored background to them and because of it, The Darkest Captive felt rushed and unfinished. Storywise, can't say I understood anything about Cronus and his clones. That whole storyline seemed forced and unnecessary and all over the place.O...
  • Sara Reads (mostly) LOTS of Romance
    Finished. Liked it. Great addition to this series. But, I have to say I wish there was more passion in their romance. It was sweet but I definitely wanted more intensity rather than fun lovin light heartedness (lol it's usually the other way around for me. guess theres a first time for everything)12/3-AAAAAHHH HOLY SHIT YALL THIS COMES OUT TOMORROW IM SO EXCITED AHAHAHAHHEEEEEP THE RELEASE DATE IS GETTING CLOSER!!! OK EVERYONES FREAKING OUT ABOUT...

    Life didn’t have to be an endless parade of bad moments. After a storm, flowers bloomed. Despite been pissed these two didn't get a full novel, am glad I got something.And yes I jumped from book 11 to 14.5, yes am that weird. 😁😎This Galen's letter reminded me of the one Demitri sent to Rose when she left Russia.Third, I refuse to call you “Honey,” the name your friends are using. Babycakes, I’m not your friend, I’m your potential ...

    12/29/18 : First, let me start out by saying that I feel really bad about this review. Gena is an amazing author and definitely a favorite of mine, but this novella missed the mark, by far.I was skeptical about a Galen & Honey/Legion pairing to begin with (which admittedly may have clouded my judgement). We had a lot of back story on both characters, but they barely interacted together before they were instantly enamored with each other; and the...
  • Caro
    TRASHGalen and Legion's hookup in a dingy bathroom and her killing him afterwards was still more romantic than this.
  • ◊♦ Naomi
    "Galen the Magnificent died exactly as he'd lived: a heartbreaker." The Darkest Captive wasn't everything I was hoping for but I enjoyed reading it. Could I have done without it? Yes and no. Yes because I didn't love it and I didn't really connect with the characters and no because it did bring something new to the table and opens up a new story arc for a specific character, plus we also get to revisit our old favorites, like William, Hades (both...
  • Ang -PNR Book Lover Reviews
    Hi, Hello. Thanks for reading my review.Its not new news that I LOVE Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld. This is the newest edition to the series at 14.5 and MAN oh MAN I wasn't expecting to love this as much as I did. Because well it is Galen, but I was won over from the very beginning.This book has everything that I love in a Lords story, and I cant praise it enough.Legion and Galen are two of the most unlikely couples I thought we would ...
  • Zubee
    I don't want to say much about this one; its part of a series in which I have only read the first book. I plan to read others someday but not now; for some reason I gave in and read this one. I have no idea what the MC's have done in previous books; the many ways they may have behaved badly. I think H may have been the villain in earlier books ...But it was a fun read; quick story, great H based on his interactions with the h; very nice, kind and...

    I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Review and blog tour can be found on *Milky Way of Books*Ah Galen, the most horrible character of all finally gets his own book! Even since the fourth book I've been waiting for this story! And despite some tiny arguments about the characters, I admit that I enjoyed Honey/Legion and how she and Galen finally became a couple.Paire with amazing battle scenes, a fortress and the cameo appearances...

    Jess~Galen and Legion get a story!!! Oh, yes please. For those who have not followed the Lords of the Underworld story line cannot understand the excitement I am sure all of the fans felt for this story to come to pass. While the 1001 Nights books are meant to be a standalone, I real feel that knowing the backstory adds to the enjoyment of this book. Legion is a demon who spent some time in hell, literally. A place where horrible things were done...

    "Galen might have been created for war, but he lived for Leila."I have been waiting YEARS for Galen and Legion's story. As well as for the Mighty HADES and beloved William. I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into this novella, even though I was slightly disapointed that this wasn't a full novel. It was definitely enjoyable. This could be read as a stand-alone but reading the entire series gives you a bigger depth and appreciation to Galen and Legio...

    This is the first book I have read in this series and it has made me want to read the whole series because holy hell even though it was a novella it was ONE HELL OF A NOVELLA! I got to see who Galen and Legion were and the story behind them. It is a haunting and dark story but it was one hell of a story that needed to be told.Legion poor Legion she has been through hell and back and that is literal because she is in hell where she is tortured and...

    Reviewed for Romancing the Readers Blog: https://romancingthereaders.blogspot....From the first sentence I was hooked on this book. I just wanted, no, needed to know more. Because this is a novella it really needed to suck me in from almost page one to keep me going and it did just that. I've been reading and enjoying Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series for a long while now. I really enjoy her characters and want to know what's going ...

    Um...…This sucked. Full of cheese and lameness. I like Galen and Legion when they first met. It was "I am woman, hear me roar" hotness. That scene was epic. And not only did their characters and attitudes COMPLETELY change, but so did that scene apparently. They did not kiss. When Legion remembers her time with Galen in The Darkest Captive, she mentions she kissed him and then kept kissing him and then it lead to something else. No.... they did...
  • Barraza1
    Umm, what did I just read?I've been waiting a long time for this couple. Galen with his evil, brooding darkness and Legion with soul-crushing pain... I wanted the push and pull of 2 characters seeking love, redemption and healing...What I got? Nothing even close to that. Did Showalter actually write this? What the heckle happened to these characters' personalities?! I honestly didn't know who was "writing" in the prologue almost all the way throu...
