Review: The Darkest Captive

The Darkest Captive The Darkest Captive by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book has been a long time coming and I can't believe they didn't even get their own book! That being said, I'm glad we got to spend time exclusively with Galen so I could get over my instant hatred for him (just like the Lords). He's just so... arrogant. This book helped us peel away the layers of Galen to find the gooey center, where Legion/Honey gets her HEA.

Legion/Honey was in lockdown until Galen comes crashing in. Highlight? Robo-pigeons. You'll learn all about them when you read the book. After that, Galen has a bit of an uphill battle, trying to get through her very high and very venomous walls. The sizzle is there between them (like always), but there are boatloads of drama to contend with.

Of course, there wouldn't be a Lords story without a big bad, and this one is everyone's favorite clone (really?). While we nudge this larger storyline towards completion, you shouldn't hold your breath. As a short story/novella goes, this gave a lot without getting too bogged down in the very rich history of all the lords and ladies.
