The Darkest Promise: A Paranormal Romance Novel

We rated this book:


In The Darkest Promise, Cameo, keeper of the demon Misery, is on a journey to find Lazarus, the only person to ever be able to overlook the misery she inflicts onto others with no more than a sigh. He may hold the key to defeating the demon she hosts or he may lead to her ultimate misery.

I’ve been looking forward to Cameo’s story since I began this series. The premise is fascinating–how can someone whose whole existence wallows in misery find happiness and joy? Working in a male-dominated field, I also identified with her as the only female Lord. As with all the other Lords of the Underworld, Cameo’s journey isn’t about defeating her demon so much as figuring out its weakness. She’s one of the last Lords to find her mate, and her search is just as difficult as that of all the others. Lazarus has intrigued me since he was first introduced in The Darkest Surrender. There were hints in subsequent books that he would have a more central role. Their courtship is filled with amusing banter and sexy encounters.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed Lazarus and Cameo’s story, the ending was a bit disappointing. It felt…rushed and shallow. It didn’t ruin the overall reading experience for me, but I definitely had a “really?” moment at the end. Fans of Gena Showalter will love the latest edition to the Lords of the Underworld series.
