    "Great book - Great Narrator"
    Would you listen to The Darkest Hour again? Why?

    I would listen to this book over again. I LOVED this book, great story line, great action and the family of characters are very very likable. The narrator is also very wonderful. I only listened one other book w/ a male narrator and was very happy w/ this one. He was very appealing to listen to, he added depth to the characters. Excited for the next one.

    "Excellent Book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Darkest Hour the most enjoyable?

    It was greatly read by a narrator that puts emotion in to the story as it is told.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite, all great. The story was very smooth and detailed.


    What about Harry Berkeley’s performance did you like?

    He is great, lots of emotion involved in his story telling and voices of the involved characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Each point made was a new experience I do not have a specific one.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to this whole series! I will not hear another book till I am through with this series!

    "Overall just OK...."

    Was looking for a new series and this one caught my eye. Wasn't overly excited about the story, kind of went on slowly with alot more detail than needed. The narration just ok as well. I'm hoping there's better to come in the following books. The strong brothers kept me interested in the future books to come.

    "Can't do out of order"
    What disappointed you about The Darkest Hour?

    I thought I could listen to the series out of order. But I was bored and found I was on chapter 6 and I hadn't heard a thing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Maya Banks again?

    Yes but will do in order. I really don't like series but have been pleasantly surprised...until this one.

    "Maya Banks is an author that pulls you in!!"
    Would you listen to The Darkest Hour again? Why?

    yes, great writing. Fabulous Narrating!!


    What other book might you compare The Darkest Hour to and why?

    I'd say they are close to the Catherine Coulter FBI series!


    What does Harry Berkeley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He ads an extra personal touch. The way he brings the characters to life and allows the characters to be more real and feeling!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I've read this book before, however, when I listened to the part when Rachael was rescued, I literally cried. Harry Berkeley is fantastic at brining the emotions to the surface.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep the great writing and the character development coming!!

    "LOVED IT!!!"

    I loved this book! After listening to this 1st book in the series, I have already purchased the rest of them. The narrator was great, I love a strong male character especially when the narrator has a strong male voice!! If you love Maya Banks, you will love this series, it may just be the best one yet!
