Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS SERIES "The Darkest Craving" by Gena Showalter. Book 10 in the Lords of the Underworld series. Loved it! Another fantastic addition to the series! Kane carries the demon Disaster within him. So literally, disaster follows Kane wherever he goes. He's just been saved from the tortures of hell by a woman and now he can't stop thinking about her. When he finds her and all she wants from him is for him to kill her? Yeah, not going to happen. Killing her is the last thing on his mind. But the Fates have told him that she's not meant for him. Kane is fated to marry the keeper of Irresponsibility, who just happens to be her sister... Josephina is tired of being a blood slave to her sister. All she wants is to die and stop the pain. Certainly a Lord of the Underworld can make that happen, right? When she saves Kane from hell, he promised he would kill her...well, he was pretty out-of-it when she asked him and probably didn't really know what he was saying "yes" to, but still! He did agree! But now that he refuses to kill her, she must find alternative means. Kane is now chasing her, but he's not the only one. Her family is after her too. They want her back so she can continue being a blood slave and take all her sister's punishments. Such an interesting storyline in this book. I found myself laughing at the banter between Kane and Josephina, then cringing at other scenes that are just that dark. Kane gives Josephina the knickname Tink (for Tinker Bell) and she's refered to as such for most of the book. She actually ends up with a few knicknames, one of which I was just like "NO, just no." It drove me nuts when Kane used it because I hated it myself...and no, I'm not telling you what it was, you have to read it to find out for yourself! I loved the ending of this book! It was so emotional! It was written really beautifully and I didn't even see it coming! Love when that happens! The next book is about Torin, the keeper of Disease! I can't wait to read it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another knockout I don't know why I waited so long to read this because it was great, I thought the characters were fun and it was interesting to see disaster rally go to town on Kane. Josephina was such a fun and snarky character, the concept was fun and I love William I really hope he gets a book soon. Overall great book I look forward to the darkest touch. :0)
