From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet… 
Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin's every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.  
She is Keeleycael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean her end, but resisting her is the hardest battle he's ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can't win.

My Review: I found this series MANY MANY years ago and fell in love.  I adore every single Lord and the women with quirks they fall in love with! Gena has the capability to make readers see this fantastic world and believe! I read this book over a 24 hour period and now feel a need for more.  I have already suggested my best friend pick up this series and have been told she will.  Tor Tor has always been my favorite of the lords. And I just LOVE Anya.  So to find another woman who can rival Anya in all ways and even best her....VERY fun read! I love how I could be reading an intense part of the book and all of a sudden it cuts to a fight between two with scissors.  Too endearing!!!
I easily give this book a 5 out of 5 and will certainly read it again and again waiting for the next story!  Glad to hear about Baden and Pandora too! Keep em coming Gena!
