While this book was not as good as the others in the series it provides a lot of background information. It still had an interesting story line and an unexpected ending. I think it is worth listening too so as to put the other books in perspective.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This is a great prequel to the Lords of the Underworld series. It's not a requirement for the LOTU series but it was a great companion read.
I used to be an avid reader of Romance novels. I usually preferred the Harlequin & Silhouette series''. I would read several books a day over the summer and several a week during school months. I took a long break as an adult but have gotten back to it this year and am very much enjoying my Audible experience. So far I still really like general Romance but have found a real unexpected joy in Supernatural & Paranormal Romances.
Having read the first book in the series, I have a really hard time thinking of this as a prequel. It had very little to do with any back story. It seems that it was a totally different story and different world that the author tied in at the end with a mention of creating a box out of bones. It gave so little insight into the book I read that it really isn't even worth having taken the time to listen to. Maybe it'll become more important as I listen to more of the series but right now I'm thinking I wasted my money.
Unlike so many UF/PNR series where you have to deal with intense world building, Showalter writes a gorgeous book about love, and gives us a small but fascinating glimpse at her LOTU series. Maddox and Ashton are extraordinary H/H, and Showalter breaks you into her world of myths, gods, angels, demons, and immortal warriors slowly.
I highly recommend this series. Each book is fantastic. 1, 2 and 4 are my favorite. And I'm on 6 now.
I love the series, despite very low expectations. Fantastic narrator as well.

I have listened to this series 4 times now and it is better every time.
Max bellmore total pulls you in to the story. He is right up there with Phil Gigante.
This series is as good as the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Very awesome!
Not sure the prequel was really necessary. It was disjointed and very poorly written. I've only read book one of this series and it was an interesting story, but I'm beginning to think they're all going to be similar. Maybe I should stick with contemporary romantic suspense.....
While I liked this book, it ended way too soon. However, it was a splendid introduction to the Lords of the Underworld. The Darkest Fire was magical and romantic. I was not crazy about the end, but was glad their love prevailed
I love Gena Showalter, don't get me wrong. But, this was a disappointment. The storyline could have been expanded and the lovemaking scene not really thrilling. It was not very good and I don't recommend anyone wasting time listening to it. Her other books are fantastic.
This was a nice prequel which helped put some of the pieces of the series together. It was too short though. Narrator was good but a little slow in the reading.
Hey if you like fantasy romance fiction, hot and exciting...this is a great. If fact I just purchased the entire Lords of the Underworld series. I'm on the second book - "IT ROCKS!"
