Week 51 Review: The Darkest Captive

From Goodreads:
For centuries, Galen the Treacherous has been the most hated immortal in the Underworld. With good reason! This bad boy of bad boys has lied, stolen, cheated and killed with abandon. Possessed by the demons of Jealousy and False Hope, he has always lived for a single purpose: destroy everything. 

Then he met her. 

Former demon turned human femme fatale — Legion Honey -- sought to kill Galen, but ended up parting with her virginity instead. Afraid of their sizzling connection, she ran away…and ended up trapped in hell, tortured and abused in the worst of ways. Now she’s free, and a shell of herself, afraid of her own shadow. 

Galen's hunger for Legion has only grown. Now the warrior with nothing to lose must help her rekindle the fire that once burned inside her. But as desires blaze white-hot, will Legion run again? Or will the unlikely pair succumb to love at long last? 

My Review:
Loved reading this book! I really enjoy this series, they're always great to read, and Legion and Galen are more in the middle of the morality scale vs. some of the other leads of the previous books. They're not bad, but they flirt with danger, you know?

It's been a long time coming, this book, since Aeron's book, if I remember correctly, was the start of the events that led to this book, with Galen and Legion. So over half the series ago. So I was really glad that we got this book!

Galen had a lot of confidence-but he also had 2 demons inside his head, which messed him up some of the time. Legion was broken, knew it, and wanted to be healed, and she fought for it. Which was really great to read, loved their journey!

I really enjoyed all the updates to this world, and everything that's to come, like Fox and Bjorn in The Darkest Assassin, I can't wait for that, as well as William's book, The Darkest King! So excited! This series is so great!

This book was just fantastic, and I can't wait for more!
