Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!

Possessed by the demon of Misery, Cameo isn’t allowed to experience joy. If she dares, her memory is wiped clean. With no other recourse, she sneaks into a land more fantastical than any fairy tale, determined to find the one man with the key to her redemption.

Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual rules his kingdom with a single unwavering focus: to build his army and annihilate his enemies. Nothing distracts him – until Cameo. He is relentless in his quest to make her smile and seduce her into his bed.

As dark forces conspire against them, threatening to destroy the fragile bond they’ve forged, the once-calm Lazarus grows crazed. Every heart-stopping kiss and wicked touch causes Cameo to teeter on the brink of happiness. But if she falls, she risks forgetting him forever 


It’s Cameo & Lazarus! I can’t wait for their story! We didn’t see them in The Darkest Torment, but from The Darkest Touch I think they are still in another realm, trying to find their way back.

It feels like forever since I’ve been in this world. I had mixed feelings about The Darkest Torment and I’m hoping that The Darkest Promise totally blows me out of the water. With these two characters I have high expectations, so I’m really excited. There are still a few things left in the air from other characters and I’m anxious to see how much of them we will get to read about.

It’s about time for a new Lords of the Underworld book and I’m so excited I feel like Christmas is coming. Considering this is a big PNR release day, I may need to take a day off work! Release day is June 13, 2017. Make sure you have all your preorders ready for this day. You’re going to want to curl up with The Darkest Promise the minute it downloads or arrives on your doorstep!
