The Darkest King (Lords of the Underworld #14) by Gena Showalter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

SO MUCH FUN!! I just adored this super sweet (with all the magic action) story of William and his fabulous Sunny, the mystical Unicorn. Yes, there were tons of unicorn rainbow themes that Ms. Showalter weaved into this fantastic story. Lots of laughs for sure!

William has been a fan-favorite for several years. Always has the best lines, the best friends – (Anya is a hoot) and the best magic! But having been cursed at a young age to be killed by his future life-mate, he has avoided love at all costs. We all thought that Gillian (The Darkest Warrior – LOTU #14) was destined to by William’s mate – she ended up with Puck instead and that worked out perfectly. I never could quite picture a William & Gillian match anyway. He’s needed someone “unique” to finally break his pesky Love-Curse issue.

Enter the darling, quirky Sunny – a unicorn-shifter that rocks his world. Literally. I especially love all the magical unicorny-type personality traits that she embraces. Draws strength from rainbows, eats leaves and petals, loves everyone and all animals. She is also a badass code-breaker geek girl – just who William needs. Showalter has Sunny change looks and moods often – which quenches William the Panty Melter’s past queue of varying ladies. The banter between these two main characters had me laughing out loud and their chemistry was so steamy!

Our William is an “Alpha with a Heart” and proclaims his love on the regular to his adopted Dad (Hades) and his kids (Horsemen of the Apocalypse) – SWOON! Lots of family/bromance drama for sure and tidbits from our author on upcoming plotlines – Hello Axel (and his hostage?), then maybe Hades (and his mirror?)! And we finally find out what William actually is – or did we? It’s got to be in his eyes – his real father’s eyes? Another reason to get Axel’s book ASAP!

If you are a Gena Showalter, Lords of the Underworld aficionado – The Darkest King will not disappoint. If this is your first LOTU book, you will love the love story as it can absolutely be read as a standalone. Enjoy!
