horrible little demon that Aeron met in Hell while he was tortured in The Darkest Pleasure She was an it ,i.e an ugly stupid thing of questionable sex who liked killing and torturing Aeron should be disgusted by it, not feel protective feelings for it Massster used to call me Legion before he called me Ssstupid Idiot It moved one step closer, humming with giddiness Grinning, fangs making another

those crimson eyes Me want to play Will you play with me Pleassse, pleassse, pleassse From The Darkest Pleasure I don t know about you, but my first thoughts about Legion is that it is sexless or a male demon And the same thing thought all the Lords of the Underworld Settle down, boy, Lucien told the little demon We only want the best for Aeron Legion hissed like a startled cat, the noise scraping at Reyes s skin Me no boy You think me a boy Everyone stopped, stared Even Aeron Reyes was the first to find his voice You re a girl A nod Me pretty Yes, you are Reyes exchanged a glance with Lucien Beautiful Aeron had yet to recover from the shock. From The Darkest Pleasure SURPRISE Yes, Legion is a girl demon A girl who changed into a beautiful woman in order to protect Aaron and trap evil Galen in The Darkest Passion You re beautiful, she said, and he was With his pale hair and pale blue eyes, with his flawless features and sensual mouth, he was every woman s fantasy But he d helped destroy her Aeron s life, and for that he would pay I want you Dead, but she didn t add that part.He arched a brow Of course you do You can t help yourself None of you can He almost sounded upset by that Here s a little news flash for you No matter what I make you feel, hopeful for a future, a wedding, babies, you re not going to get it from me From The Darkest Passion Well, he will get much from her She will become his obsession for many years and for many books While she was spending her life in Hell suffering the consequences of the deal for her transformation, Galen was thinking about her.When she was saved from Hell by the Lords and she was the most broken girl in the world, Galen still wanted her He made deals with his enemies in order to be close to her So we reached finally this book, The Darkest Captive, where Galen and this obsession will finally meet and Legion will be ready to face him and see where this will go.Yeh Lucky us, the fans Yes, I have been looking forward to reading their story and I have to admit that even if it was 1000 pages long, I would have read the book in one sitting Unfortunately it was a bit shorter in comparison to the normal length of a Lords of the Underworld novel But it is still okay I didn t mind at all, because the story of Galen and Legion has been expanded in several books already and because this book felt like a last chapter in their already fulfilling love story So, yes I enjoyed the book Mostly because it was about Galen and Legion and only them No side secondary stories are included.The book starts with Galen trying to convince Legion to give him a chance He basically uses in order to communicate with her the only way all lovers have been using through centuries He write letters to her which he is not sure whether she can read them Admit it If we were characters in a super hot romance novel, you d be the vulnerable babe in need of a protector, and I d be the hardcore alpha villain everyone secretly yearns to tame Spoiler alert I m willing to let you give the taming thing your best shot Because I m a giver.And I don t want you on your own.If you leave with me, you ll get 24 7 care, and a huge benefits package I can t oversell that benefits package Your safety, well being, and satisfaction in a job well done will be my top priorities, I swear it.I want to protect you I NEED to protect you Please, let me.So, this is the book where the series biggest villain and the series most tortured girl will find their HEA.The book is must read if you re a series fan If you are new in the series, the book still includes enough details of this world and you can easily connect to the story.I loved the book It gives a deeper understanding of the complex characters of Galen and Legion Galen will have his redemption and Legion will have her lover and saviour view spoiler BEFORE PUBLICATION 14th of DecemberBook cover has just been revealed Lucky us Two books of LoTUs will be published in 2018.This second book is about Galen and Legion and it will be published from 1001 Dark Nights.I was looking forward to Gallen s story for many years now We all knew that he will end up with demon Legion.I only hope that it will not be a short length story, since I know that 1001 Dark Nights usually publish short length books I believe Galen deserves a full length book.Anyway, this will be good hide spoiler flag 68 likesLike see review View all 12 comments May 12, 2018 Belen rated it it was ok 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 flag 29 likesLike see review View all 3 comments Dec 01, 2018 Lana Dirty Girl Romance rated it really liked it Shelves paranormal romance 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 of an angel and the body of a porn star, and he wanted to pray and sin at the same time. The nice thing about this novella, is that readers that are new to the series can enjoy it as well But if you re like me and have read the entire series, than you ll certainly have a different sort of appreciation to Legion and Galen s journey.Admittedly, I struggled with Legion as a character after Aeron s book I mean, an almost childlike demon turned beautiful seductress I wasn t sure if I bought into it But she s won me over with her strength and perseverance throughout the series Her do anything for those she love attitude is what got her on Galen s radar and I couldn t wait to see how it all concludes.Galen has been THE baddie for the first half of this series And if there s anything I love, it s a good redemption story After a sizzling encounter that was only supposed to be a means to an end, it ended up changing the course of things for both Galen and Legion Legion has been trying to heal her mind after the torture she endured in hell And Galen has been obsessed with finding and finally wooing her back into his bed once and for all I really loved Legion and Galen together I did find myself wishing that it was fleshed out into a full story, as it did feel a bit rushed at points But at the same time, I still highly enjoyed it despite that quibble, so I can t complain much Now if you ll excused me, I m off to go rock myself in a corner until William s book finally comes

possible that Legion and Galen, who were very important characters since they were introduced, have their story told in a novella while Baden, who was almost dead until his book and is super boring,

no apologies for that, I love that the author didn t try to justify his past actions His love and dedication to Legion is so admirable and I also got to know that he cares about someone else apart from himself He checked his reflection in the full length mirror to search for flaws Not a single one The dark pin striped suit made from the finest silk money could buy had cutouts for his wings, and the white button up molded to his significant muscle mass Dayum He looked so good he had a crush on himself His pale hair appeared wind blown, but also perfect Dare he mention the sparkle in his

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 enad with each other and their first meeting didn t really inspire forever mate feelings The pairing felt very forced and rushed and didn t make much sense Personally, I m not a fan of Galen s and would have preferred he remained a villain and I liked Legion the demon much better before she became Legion Honey Leila.Also, something I ve noticed in recent books is that all of Gena s characters both female and male are becoming very one note Sadly, I ve noticed this across all of her series, too In the earlier books, each character was multi faceted and unique now, it s like all the characters have basically adopted William s persona and, while I love him, I don t want all the characters to sound the same We had Danika who went from scared captive to bad ass heroine sweet and innocent Olivia who gave up everything for what she believed was right Haidee who was ruthlessly against all things Lord until gets to know them better and falls in love with one Her initial heroines all had very distinct personalities, but now they kind of all mesh into the same flippant, sassy, cheeky yes, I know those are all synonyms for the same thing and is kind of my point one dimensional character with a slightly different backstory Even the men have all become irreverent jokesters while I like that quality in a few, it certainly doesn t suit each of their personalities In future books, I d like a little attention placed on making each character unique.It seemed to me like there were a few inconsistencies with Fox s character, but it s been a while I will pass that off as misremembering But where did this view spoiler she s a Gatekeeper and can open portals nonsense come from hide spoiler She used to be a Hunter, right I guess it s time to re read, lol Oh, and how can William all of a sudden do the same Now that I ve complained a bunch, here are some things I liked about the story The steamy scenes were really hot, not gonna lie I think they were definitely an improvement over past books I appreciated how Galen treated Legion Honey Leila although, for goodness sakes pick a name and stick to it how he helped build her up and empowered her, without letting her play the victim.All in all, unfortunately this was a disappointing story William s is next and I m hoping things will turn around 9 27 18 So, Galen and Honey Legion I honestly don t know how I feel about this I figured they would always end up together, but I feel like we ve had no build up whatsoever and SO MUCH left to be answered They bumped into each other once, Galen becomes enad and Honey Legion is dragged to Hell and brutalized we haven t even heard from her in several books, to my recollection Galen was Undesirable 1 for 9 books and all of a sudden is all buddy buddy with the Lords again I am skeptical as to how Gena will manage to wrap all of this up in one novella, but am trying to keep an open mind 9 21 17 Oooh, will this be Siobhan

and opens up a new story arc for a specific character, plus we also get to revisit our old favorites, like William, Hades both are mine and mine alone and the other Lords and Ladies There was William the Ever Randy, laughing as he sliced a man from nose to navel I am a big fan of Gena and her one of a kind writing style, she never holds back on the violence, sex or humor and The Darkest Captive was no exception, but maybe, just maybe, it was too much in this case I really liked the beginning of the story, getting reacquainted with both characters, Galen and Legion, but then the whole thing turned really cheesy once their relationship evolved into something , I had to stop reading during some scenes because it was honestly cringeworthy.Galen was the big villain of this series for so long and I was expecting, I needed him to be badder, meaner You can be in love and still be an asshole Maybe it s just me and that s okay but I feel like he lost all his personality when he fell in love with Legion and that was a real downer for me He was still a funny, not so humble guy but he became sosoft toward everyone else that I ended up losing my interest in him.The way Gena dealt with Legion was better She s been through hell, literally, and at the start of the book she s hiding, alone and wants nothing to do with the outside world Then Galen finally finds her and they have to run because bad people are after her I liked being inside her head and seeing her deal with what happened to her in Hell My only complaint is that since it s a novella about 170 pages I think things developed quite quickly and I do feel like her recovery was a little too fast.If you know anything about me, you know novellas aren t my thing because I like big books I like when I have time to get to know the characters, connect with them in a way that feels real and believe in their love So maybe that s also a reason why this book wasn t a big win for me, even though it s long for a novella, it s not your usual Gena s long and because of that, I did not have time to connect with Galen and Legion properly Gena being Gena wrote this book in a way that I could not hate it, I liked the story as a whole because I got to see some of my favorite characters of hers and meet some cute new ones and also her warped sense of humor always makes my day I did like Galen and Legion s relationship but it definitely was not my favorite I do believe some of my favorite quotes are in this book though and I am glad I read The Darkest Captive because it gives Galen and Legion proper closure and makes me want to read the next one so bad but for this, I will have to wait a little longer.All in all, I think The Darkest Captive is a nice in between book that gives you a little insight in the Lords life, and prepares makes you crave the next full length novel Water sluiced over the butterflies, every ridge of strength, and into the golden happy trail that led to his massive erection Magnificent beast.

so curious to see what happens now, I want to know about William Galen is different to the other lords, where they are all possessed by one demon he is possessed by two, False Hope and Jealousy Legion

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 to her and now she is back but not really back Still a captive and not quite the same person she was before she was put there Legion aka Honey aka Leila has an uphill battle to come out of her shell and once again be the bold and deadly being she once was.Galen is the keeper of Jealousy and False Hope, he was also once the enemy to the Lords and has a complicated history with them But one taste of Legion is not enough So through entertaining letters and then a battle only fit for Lords book, he gets her, sort of At least until complications weave their way in to the situation.Funny is a dark way, sexy and complex, this was a novella that I have been waiting for I wished it had been an actual book book because there were things that I felt were rushed I have missed a couple of the lords books so I do have some catching up to do and this just made me excited for them flag 2 likesLike see review Dec 06, 2018 Julia The Romance Rebels rated it really liked it Shelves 4 stars, arc, pnr, series Galen might have

This could be read as a stand alone but reading the entire series gives you a bigger depth and appreciation to Galen and Legion s long painful journey In previous books I had a hard time finding sympathy for Legion She acted as a child but was a seductress of many beings But with The Darkest Captive, she proved me wrong She showed me courage strength and above all doing whatever it took to protect the people she loves Galen was the big bad wolf in the Lords of the Underworld franchise I expected him to be meaner cruelbut I felt he lost that after meeting Legion I wish he was of a villain But still he made me laugh my ass off a few times I didn t expect Legion and Galen to get together, but the oozing sexual chemistry and the genuine love between the characters made me swooon

attracted to Legion for such a long time and now that she s free, Galen hopes to make Legion fall for him.It was so nice to finally come back to the Lords of the Underworld series I really missed this world because I only read the first three books a few years back I only read those 3 books because back then I only read Dutch books and they only translated the first 3 books, at least the paperback editions I was a bit scared to read The Darkest Captive because it s often hard to read a series when you re used to reading it in Dutch I did, however, enjoy reading The Darkest Captive in English and I m looking forward to reading all the other books in English Now back to The Darkest Captive I only read the first 3 books, so I don t know every character of everything that happened, and that wasn t a problem at all Like mentioned in the synopsis, every 1001 Dark Nights novella is meant to be a standalone but it s also a bonus for those who read the other books I really liked this novella because it was so short, but also so fast paced The story was amazing and I couldn t get enough of Galen Galen and Legion are amazing characters It s not always easy to see character development in novellas because they re meant to be short Sometimes novellas can be really predictive or just not well written because they have to be short The Darkest Captive was such a good novella, Galen and Legion are so funny and I just love them Lords of the Underworld is such an amazing Paranormal Romance series and I love that every book focuses on a different lord and his mate, and I think that this

getting a novella I felt at first that they needed a full size story to go along with all we ve seen them suffer or cause others to suffer These two a very complex characters that I didn t think would be able to fit in only 125 pages But it worked These two show how you really need to read series in order to fully understand or appreciate characters Doesn t mean you won t like this book but I think if you read the whole series you ll not just like it, you ll love it I wasn t ever sure that Galen had a heart or could really care about someone else All I can say is sigh Totally enjoyed this one and so happy I read it It s fast paced and just plain fun to read I d love to tell you but feel you really need to read it for yourself and learn everything first hand This is a much for fans of her

    Excerpt Shocked to the bone, Legion performed a slow mo 360 Galen s kitchen had been transformed into an Arabian Nights paradise Flickering candles filled the entire room Multi colored scarves cascaded from the ceiling, intermixing with strings of beads A coffee table had replaced the kitchen table, jewel toned pillows acting as chairs Covered platters dominated the table s surface, a gem encrusted genie lamp the centerpiece.Your wish is my command The scent of corn dogs, chili cheese fries, and cotton candy saturated the air, and her mouth watered.As Galen stepped past a sheer purple curtain, electric pulses awakened every nerve in her body He looked her over You are stunning, Leila His husky timbre sent shivers rushing down her spine And when he looked her over a second time, taking in the frilly dress with a cinched in waist and mid thigh tulle skirt paired with ballet flats, his irises heated and so did her blood.Galen wore a dark, perfectly tailored suit, the polished veneer only enhancing the savagery of his soul Awareness of him eclipsed her fears, and it was nice Better than nice Wonderful For a moment, she felt like the old Legion again I m guessing I am stunning, too he prompted.Did she detect a thrum of uncertainty How adorable The saucy, ultra confident Galen cared about her opinion Meaning she had power over him How delicious You are, she admitted I think you ve hijacked my thoughts And she was glad for it Once, she d made a deal with the devil because she d dreamed of falling in love, being loved in return, and discovering why humans were so obsessed with getting naked and rolling around in bed Here, now, she realized a part of her still yearned for those things, despite everything that had happened Fear had put her life on pause long enough She deserved pleasure.If she wanted better, she had to fight for it Had she picked the right man for the job, though Someone who would be patient with her, who would ease her back to life, and give as much as he took Time would reveal the truth, one way or another, but her hopes were high Galen was strong He would cross any line to get what he wanted, and for some reason, what he wanted most was a chance to keep her safe.Unless he decided to bed her, even if she said no

    One thought on “The Darkest Captive”

    1. 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 jealousy part, Galen is the mot horrific, dangerous demon Galen [...]

    2. 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

    3. 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 of an angel and the body of a porn star, and he w< [...]

    4.

    5. 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.On the other hand, I liked Fox and everything a AFTER RE [...]

    6. Finished Liked it Great addition to this series But, I have to say I wish there was passion in their romance It was sweet but I definitely wanted 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 WILLIAM AND GILLY BUT HONESTLY THISSSSS IS WHAT I Finished Liked it [...]

    7. Watch me crack the shits if this isn t a full length story You already fucked me over with William, so don t do me worse with Galen.Legion deserves a full story.
