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 through. Who the H was that? Not the Galen we've come to love to hate. I seriously thought it was a cross-over Valkyrie character from Kresley Cole.
This couple had such wonderful wrenching setups in the previous novels (hate, betrayal, lust, agony, etc.) and this book basically ignored all that emotional investment I had in the characters to go with some flighty light lust romp with no depth, no character develop, just ugh!
So very, very disappointed. And sad to say I want my $2.99 back
I'm a voracious reader. I have read Kenyon's Acheron and Styxx within 24 hours while getting stuff done in between, but this novella took me almost a week to finish because it was so bleh. I thought about DNFing it, but I managed to get through it.
This book is dull. With all the battles and sex this little piece of book is still somehow so boring I had to keep taking breaks and reading other books in between.
At least I got some Aeron and Olivia for my troubles.
I can't even think of anything constructive to add. It's just the same rehashed LOTU story with different names. These characters are not true to what was written previously. I wanted Galen to be different and he wasn't. Neither was Legion. I wanted more of everything. This book lacks heart and I am not buying any more of these books until I'm assured that I'm getting my money's worth.
While I loved seeing familiar faces (Sabin, Gwen, Olivia, Aeron, William and so on), the fight scenes were cut too short. Gena is known for epic fight scenes but this time around I found them lacking.
Would I recommend this novella to others? Sure, any fan of the LOTU should read this. We all need our LOTU fix. However, The Darkest Captive won’t blow you away (IMHO). With that said, she did set us up for a showdown between Fox and the Elite Angels. That storyline peaks my interest….
There has been much build up to this story, and while Showalter does not disappoint, she could have easily made this into a full length novel. Many readers and long time fans may be disappointed that such dynamic characters had their story cut short to a novella. Both leads have complex personalities and complicated fleshed out stories that span across the series. Watching their story unfold was both a delight and a sorrow.
Overall, the story is a must read for fans of paranormal romance, whether they have read Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series or not. Filled with detailed mythology, heart wrenching romance, and Showalter’s trademark wit, “The Darkest Captive” is the perfect Christmas gift for PNR reader’s everywhere.
But! I read this story because I knew Gena had a vision and that there was a reason Legion deserved her own story and love. And man, I was right! Gena made a character that was just slimy and annoying pretty kick ass. Okay, Legion already had some redeeming qualities, but she just annoyed me with her infatuation with Aeron and then her weaknesses with her human body. Yes, I know that she went through hell, literally, but compared to Gena's other heroines, she just didn't step up to the plate for me. I was wrong and being way to harsh on her. Legion just needed to be given a chance by both the world and me (or any other reader) to prove that she deserved to be part of The Lords of the Underworld's family.
Galen and Legion make a fun couple and I regret that I ever doubted this.
Thanks again Gena for such a kick ass story!
Galen has finally found her again and he will do anything to protect her this time, even if that means working with the Lords, the same ones he has been waring with for eons. Someone is after her and he will keep her safe at all cost, even if it means his life.
Definitely another awesome read by the brilliantly clever Gena Showalter and a must read in the Lords of the Underworld series!

Legion/Honey/Leila: Former demon now human but still with demon traits.
This story is action packed and fast paced. Their story was sweet, in a violent kind of way, but hey, this is Legion and Galens story.
Having just read four books straight on The Lords of the Underworld i can honestly say i am thoroughly looking forward to the next book. (Well i have been on holiday and i can't think of a better way to spend a week by the pool!)
