    "Informative"

    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.

    "Great short story for Lords fans!"

    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.

    "Not my fire pit"

    I know not why I got this book. Romance is not my area of enjoyment. I do try some of it every now in then just to see if there is an author I might like. I strongly believe a good author can write anything and make you like it.

    This guy sells his soul to the devil, because his wife left him. I soon figured out his wife left him, cause he is an idiot. Plus if he was a great lover, his first wife would have not left him. I mean make a woman scream in bed and she is yours for a life time. I have been married 34 years and no matter what others say, that is the secret.

    The female lead is almost as dumb as him so they do go together. The story not only makes these two look stupid, but make the devil look like an idiot. To escape the devil, it seems you just have to kill yourself. How dead people kill themselves is beyond me. I know they are not dead people, they are god and demon, but still.

    Narrator is good.

    "Not really a prequel..."

    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.

    "one of my favorites!"
    Would you listen to The Darkest Fire again? Why?

    I have listened to this series 4 times now and it is better every time.


    What about Max Bellmore’s performance did you like?

    Max bellmore total pulls you in to the story. He is right up there with Phil Gigante.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is as good as the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Very awesome!

    "I should have just given one star."

    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.....

    "Sweet!"

    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

    "Was not what I expected"

    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.

    "Good Series Start..."

    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.
