Well I tried book two of the Lords of the Underworld series, The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter, and it was just as bad as the first, so I decided to stop at 40 pages. I just don’t care for the series. There is something that doesn’t agree with me; her writing style, the world, the characters…I just can’t put my finger on it, but I am wasting too much time on something I’m not enjoying. The series feels like a sad attempt at J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, a series that I actually enjoy quite a bit. I read in another review about the comparison and started seeing the similarities all over the place. I feel a little bad about putting this series aside, not trying harder to like it, but I just can’t go on. My reading is an escape and shouldn’t be a struggle. So sorry to all her fans, but the series just isn’t for me. Going to try cleansing my palette a bit and read some dystopian YA next.
