    "Not her best"

    For anyone who has read the other books, you will not be delighted. I was so anticipating this book but I found there was barely a story... (sigh). Its all sex, sex, sex, and not the fun raunchy romps of the other books. Where before, there was action with all the characters's involvement in the Search for the Artifacts, it did not go forward this time. I did not enjoy this installment, I cannot say I'm glad I read it. Honestly, you can skip this one. Okay, maybe not, since you learn about Scarlett and (finally!) about what happened to Paris's girl (I forgot her name). Max Bellmore's narration is, as always, the best.

    "More, more, more!"

    I can't believe Gena took me there. I've never cried so many tears over a book. Aeron is my absolute favorite warrior!

    I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.

    "Aeron finally gets a happy ending"

    I enjoyed this book, but very disappointed in the ending. I am sure that Gena has a plan for why this book ended this way (or at least I hope she does). I will just have to wait and see where she takes it.

    "You can't go wrong!"

    I really enjoy reading this series. You cannot go wrong listening to the Gena/ Max combo. This is very intriguing, sexy, and emotional. It is not an all brawn no brain or all sex. This is a combination of everything.

    I do not think I need to go into detail about the specifics of the book because you can all read the summary. All I really need to tell you is that the book is good and is definitely worth it!

    Enjoy!

    Story
    "Underneath a nice guy"
    Where does The Darkest Passion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up toward the top, the characters are noble, the plot is action packed and in the end love conquers death.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That both Aeron and Olivia are willing to give up their live for the other. That Aeron always thinks about his loved ones and even defies the heavenly realm to save one.


    Have you listened to any of Max Bellmore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He fits the stories he narrates. The characters and story come to life.


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

    When Aeron gives up his head so that Olivia is saved.


    Any additional comments?

    Another fasinating series. It amaze me how many twist authors in this genre have come up with to tell their tale.

    Story
    "Wrath is gone."

    I enjoy all the LOTU stories up to date. The story lines do not progress the way that I think they should or expect. I was a little disappointed with the way that Legion turned out to be. I did like her in the previous books. My favorite is still the second book The Darkest Kiss with Lucian and Anya. Looking forward to the rest, now only if there was a sale, I would be happy. A series that defiently needs to be read in order. Another series recommended it Psy-Changling by Nalini Signh.

    Story
    "I Really Liked This Book"
    Where does The Darkest Passion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I liked The Darkest Passion. I was surprised that this book would be interesting to me and the most thus far in the series. I really loved the narrators spin on the voice he uses with the demons in this story. I loved the author's use of the demons to bring comic relief at times and make you pay attention to them, for their characters are just as important. I loved the love play between the two main characters. I loved the dilemma.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Darkest Passion?

    The love scenes and how they can never complete them like they are suppose to be completed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Legion burst in during Aeron and Gwen's afterglow.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot at the book. It was a wonderful laugh and I listen to excerts of this book every now and then to gather tid bits when listening to other books in the series.

    "wow!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Darkest Passion the most enjoyable?

    I never write reviews but this novel was too good! It was the best book so far in this series, not to mention any of the many other books I have read! It actually made me cry! Most all the other of the books in the series so far have been a bit slow in the beginning and then picked up in the end but none this good. This one from beginning too end was action, suspense and everything you would want!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Darkest Passion?

    The ending suspense!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too much and it would too big of a spoiler....sorry you have to read the whole thing!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did cry.....I never cry when listening or reading a book!


    Any additional comments?

    You have to read the whole series to understand each book, including this one.

    "Story getting interesting"
    If you could sum up The Darkest Passion in three words, what would they be?

    Nicely coming together


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

    The Black Dagger Brotherhood series


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

    Passion and emotion


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

    When Sabin professed his love for Gwen and admits all of his deep secrets and vulnerabilities


    Any additional comments?

    Keeps you on the edge pondering the fate of the other Lords ... there are "hints" at what is in store for them... still wondering what role the harpy sisters will play!
