    One thought on “The Darkest Night”

    1. My Problem that I Know Will Not Actual Bother Everyone: Okay, the main ‘hero’ is an immortal warrior who is partially controlled by demon of Violence. Yes, Violence, which the heroine, Ashlyn, is dating. He spends the first 50 pages (give or take) chanting kill, murder, slice, hurt, killkillkill to himself. He acknowledges that while he tries to fight the demon, he does fail - on a nearly nightly bases. Now, I’m aware that in this genre love conquers all and that relationships and people i [...]

    2. As the first full-length book in this series, this book did a good job of making me want more. Aside from the love story between Maddox and Ashlyn, which was fantastic by the way, there was a lot of plot and character development. No doubt, this will serve to make future books more entertaining. It was a wholly enjoyable read.Ashlyn and Maddox seemingly meet by chance. He thinks that she's bait for hunters. She is curious about the house of immortal beings. The townspeople speculate are angels a [...]

    3. "Every night death came, slowly, painfully, and every morning Maddox awoke in bed, knowing he'd have to die again later. That was his greatest curse and his eternal punishment."This book is a great intro into the Lords of the Underworld series and I admit, I am completely hooked!! I will not stop until I read them all!!!Before I tell you about the story, you have to know a few facts about the Lords (all of these facts will be explained in the first 10 pages of the book so I won't be giving any s [...]

    4. *sigh* What can I say? The Darkest Night wasn't very dark. I wanted to like this book because it came so highly recommended from friends, but I've read Showalter's writing before and I was skeptical.Well, my first impression was unfortunately right. Showalter's writing style is still very light and sugary, only it's even more out of place in such a dark setting (i.e. constant violence).Her heroes are supposed to be Greek immortals, exalted and admired guardians of the gods until their hubris lea [...]

    5. Well, I finally started the much lauded Lords of the Underworld series. I was happy with this book. However, it does have some issues with it that I felt detracted from it as a stellar read. I felt like there was a roughness in some of the writing. I have a theory about this. I think that the publishers really put a lot of pressure on the paranormal writers to put out a series quickly. This takes time away from the authors that they need to polish each book so that it can be at its best. I felt [...]

    6. |3.8 keeper of awesomeness stars|It is so good when things turn out positively.I was a bit afraid of finding out I didn’t like this series after reading The Darkest Touch but with re-reading this first book? I feel like I’m back on it.The Lords of The Underworld series is so addicting and so much fun and with an interesting premise, it’s no wonder why how these books have made it this far.I find the mix between Greek mythology, urban legends and paranormal creatures pretty great and with t [...]

    7. THE BACK STORYLong ago twelve immortals warriors made by Zeus, became jealous of Pandora she was chosen to guard a box. Inside that box housed some of the most dangerous demons ever known. The Immortals made a horrible mistake of killing Pandora and opening the box. As punishment for the evil they have unleashed each warrior was sentenced to carry one of those demons for all eternity. They are - Violence, Pain, Death, Disease, Disaster, Misery, Doubt, Promiscuity, Defeat, Lies, Secrets, and Wrat [...]

    8. “Sometimes what we want isn't what we need.”Let me tell you a story.Thousands years ago the box that held the most disastrous demons was given by the gods to Pandora . She was a warrior and everyone felt envy that a female had the responsibility to reck the box . Anyone would kill for this position. Moving Pandora into a trap wasnt a smart move and warriors were bound to be possessed by these demons .In this book we are introduced Maddox . He played a significant role in Pandora's (view spoi [...]

    9. Maddox: Demon of violenceButterfly: upper left shoulder, wrapping around to his backHis curse: He is stabbed every night only to be brought back to life the next day and then the next night he has to die again.Ashlyn Darrow: She works for the World Institute of Parapsychology.Supernatural ability: She hears voices about things that they happened in the past.In ancient time, Maddox is the warrior that killed Pandora and then the box that included all the vicious demons disappeared and all the dem [...]

    10. ""I need to prepare you." He was about to see her underwear-another embarrassing topic. They were plain white cotton. Granny gear, she's once heard a man say. She never wore sexy clothing, even underclothing, while on the job. It wasn't practical. "I do own sexy underwear, I promise, but i'm not wearing it right now.""WTFUCK??! Get a grip sisterI mean seriously when in the throws of passion who cares what pants you are wearing just take them off. Have a little confidence for goodness sake. But l [...]

    11. I must preface this by saying that I only made it to page 200, so i probably shouldn't be reviewing this book. However, the fact that I couldn't really be bothered to make it past page 200 makes this worthy of explaining why.I picked up this book, first because I got a rec for it and second because the cover art is so darned striking. And I was really stoked by someone doing something a little different within the paranormal genre. I admit, I am always on the look out for paranormal that don't i [...]

    12. 3.5-4 Cursed Stars!I think I've found a new PNR series that I might love. I'm excited! This was Ashlyn and Maddox's story. But it was stocked full with all the other warriors. A perfect set up for more to come. Ashlyn hears voices. Lots of voices. Every where she goes if people have been there she hears their conversation. She wants the voices to stop. She's on the hunt for the men with special abilities that she's heard about to see if maybe they can help her quiet the noise. Maddox is a warrio [...]

    13. (4 Stars)Ooohhh!!! Yummily sexy cover! That was my first reaction. ^_^ Seriously. Love the covers in this series.The Darkest Night, the first book of the Lords of the Underworld series, is my first Gena Showalter book. I really liked it but wasn’t completely captured by it. I haven’t been hooked yet like I am with J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood. I’m putting it out there – I just LOOOVVEEE those Brothers!!! Okay? Bias, outted. Though, to be fair, I wasn’t completely addicted to [...]

    15. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4.5 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    16. What I expected:1. A too-sexy-to-be-true hero.2. A too-feminine-to-be-anything-but-Barbie heroine.3. Lust at first sight that magically transforms into true love barely 50 pages into the book.What I got:1. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments. 2. Swoon-worthy heroes. 3. A thoroughly enjoyable read.Yes, the girl's a virgin. Yes, the guy's an immortal who has existed since before time yet still hasn't ever fallen in love. But no, the girl's not a wimpy, gullible, brainless idiot. And no, the guy actuall [...]

    17. July 12, 2013"We’ll wait there and let the Hunters come to us.” “That’s it? That is your plan?” “Well, that and kill them.” The fragrance of roses became stronger as Lucien’s eyes glittered menacingly. “It’s a good plan.” Pretty good opening book of the ’Lords of the Underworld’ series.Smartly built alternative mythology, gradually measured tension and multiplying conflict. Maddox is the least significant Lord for me, so the first book being his is really smart, because [...]

    18. “Sometimes what we want isn't what we need.”Στο παρελθόν, μου είχαν προτείνει πολλοί να ξεκινήσω κάποια από τις σειρές της Gena Showalter. Ποτέ όμως δεν έτυχε να πιάσω κάποια στα χέρια μου. Πριν λίγες μέρες καθώς χάζευα στις διακοπές μου σε διάφορα μικρά βιβλιοπωλεία το μάτι μου έπεσε κατευθείαν στ [...]

    19. Hayal kırıklığım buradan Budapeşte’ye yol olur. Kitabı uzun zamandır okumak istiyordum, aramadığım sahaf kalmadı. Resmen ülkenin diğer ucundan buldum aldım. Ama sonu kocaman bir hayal kırıklığı oldu.Yorum yaparken ve puan verirken ‘Zevkler tartışılmaz’ın arkasına sığınıyorum. 😃 Kitabı sevmeyi çok istedim ama okudukça nefret ettim. Bir kere konu yoktu kitapta, başından sonuna okuduğum tek şey Maddox’ın nasıl tahrik olduğu ve Ashlyn’i yatağa atm [...]

    20. Opening line: " Every night death came, slowly, painfully, and every morning Maddox awoke in bed, knowing he'd have to die again later.As a fan of paranormal romance and in particular JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood my searches for what to read next kept taking me to this series. That's not to say the two are comparable, because they aren't but if you like continuing story arcs with multiple character POV's, hot, sexy love scenes, the occasional bloody fight and tortured yet strong alpha male [...]

    21. I must admit that when I first started reading this novel, I absolutely hated it. I just could not get into this book. So I put it down, as cutie would say, in the time out corner for a few days.I then decided to start over. After all, this book is highly rated by reviewers. Everyone seems to love it. Well – I am glad I gave this book a second chance. Once I got over my initial confusion, I really could not put the book down. The Darkest Night is the story of a group of warrior/brothers who l [...]

    22. This was such a boring read, it is kind of ridiculous.The Darkest Night is supposed to be a PNR book a-la-J.R. Ward - while there are many similarities, Showalter ultimately does not deliver. The book is filled with tortured fallen angels, forced to host a demon within them. But apart from being tortured, they are utterly indistinguishable. This is the case for the entire book - we are introduced to so many characters and none of them seemed to have a personality! The heroine, Ashlyn, was a comp [...]

    23. Como si no fuera suficiente: Aquí está la reseña en el blog, espero que no se decepcionen demasiadorivillarreal/2016/08ESTOY TREMENDAMENTE DECEPCIONADAY ya sé que voy a ser el negrito en el arroz pero siento que es mi deber hacia la comunidad lectora (mentira solo quiero explayarme) decir lo malo que es este libro. Porque por si fuera poco Después de estar siendo avasallados con libros paranormales +18 de este estilo, vienen y hacen una serie/saga lo que sea con más de 10 libros ¡Es que e [...]

    24. TÜM İBLİSLERİ KENDİME İSTİYORUM, yeni gelenlerden birkaçı hariç tabii. -.-Kitabın 50. sayfasına bile ulaşmadan yaşadığım rahatlamayı sizlere anlatamam. Beklenti bu kadar yüksek olunca hayal kırıklığına uğramaktan korkuyordum ama Ama MADDOX diye bir İblis var bu kitapta.Pandora'nın kutusu açılınca payına Şiddet İblisi düşmesi bir yana ikinci laneti olan iki savaşçıdan biri.Sanki Şiddet baş edilmesi kolay bir şeymiş gibiYahu adam Ölüm'le lanetlenmiş. He [...]

    25. The Darkest Night is a fun introduction to a new series (for me at least) that goes around demons, crazy people, violence, hot drooly (yes, I mean it as drool-y - it should be a word, it’s awesome) sex and extreme redecorating. But we all love crazy people don’t we? And violence. And sex. And hotties. Beats the hell out of watching Animal Planet. Even though the book was a great read I found many problems regarding it. It stars with the typical PNR problem: the ease with which they hooked up [...]

    26. 3.5 out of 5The Lords of the Underworld are ancient Greek Warriors that were involved in opening Pandora’s Box centuries ago. This caused a load of awful demons to posses each of the Lords. This is Maddox’s story. He is possessed the by the demon, Violence.Ashlyn struck me as TSTL right off the bat. She is wandering through the forest in the damn winter at night. Alone. What the hell? She has a terrible secret that she think the ‘angels’ will be able to help her with. The townspeople all [...]

    27. Kitabı göz atayım derken ikinci kez bitirdim.Öncelikle bir aydınlanmayı size söylemek istiyorum. tabi önce ***spoiler alert*** imi bildirmek isterim. EVET, Budapeşte’deki Savaşçıları Yunanistan’dakilerden fazla sevmişim anlaşılan, Gideon hariç. Ya da kaleden Aeron’u o kadar da haz etmiyorum.Tamam, diğerlerini henüz tam okumadım ama davranışsal olarak öyle seviyorum.Ve kıyasladığınızda ister istemez iblisiyle başı en dertte, en zor iblislere sahip olanlar budap [...]

    28. ** 12/08/11: Edits added to reflect an attempted re-readI feel like I should explain why this was the ultimate DNF for me. It had so many great reviews and I loved the blurb. I checked the bookstore every week to see if they'd restocked it. Finally, one day they had it and I put the book on reserve.Maddox is an immortal warrior who, along with his five warrior buddies got pissed when they were passed over in favor of Pandora to guard the sacred box of demons. So, they steal the box and release t [...]

    29. "Destroy.Hurt.Kill.Obliterate.Kill.Hurt.Maim.Kill.Kill.Kill.KillHurtMaim.Destroy, Destroy, Destroy, Kill."Never has any man fictional or non fictional ever made those words sounds enticing, much less sensual but Gena Showalter has succeeded in making the inner dialgue of Maddox, the keeper of Violence a voice I want in my darkest erotic fantasies. ;) Maddox as the Keeper of Violence has kept himself wrapped up in a tight guarded space to ensure the safety of others around and especially around w [...]
