    "I think this book is a five star book..."

    I was waiting for The Darkest Secret to come out and I must say that it was worth the wait, I finished this book in the first two days of down loading, Gena Showalter Does such a wonderful job with the characters, I had such a hard time putting my Ipod down, If you are like me and have liked the Dark Series you will want to read this book,
    Happy listening,

    "Max Bellmore is fantastic!"

    I am horribly picky when it comes to audiobooks, and I hate about 90% of the narrators. Max Bellmore is NOT one of them! He could make a cereal box interesting! Combine him with a genuinely good book, and you have an audiobook worth your money!

    "A bit stranger than others in the series"

    But not in a bad way. I enjoyed this book as much as I have all the others and continue to be impressed by both Gena Showalter and Max Bellmore. I've read each of these in order and wouldn't recommend doing it any other way. Each story builds on the previous and you get introduced to each character as they come into the world. It makes it easier to keep them all straight if you get to know them that way.

    "This one was a bit different"

    I LOVE Gena Showalter and "The Lords of the Underworld" series. I enjoyed this book but it wasn't my favorite one either. As usuall Max Bellmore is fantastic as the narrator.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Keeper of Secrets"

    This is a great series. If you haven't tried it then start with book 1 because GS does a great job of keeping you informed of the lives of the characters in this series. You find out interesting information in each book about various characters. This is in my Top 5 of paranormal series. I've got these in books, some in kindle (which you can get audio for a great price if you have them in kindle) and now I'm getting them in audio. Any paranormal fan wouldn't do without this series.

    "Secrets revealed"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Darkest Secret to be better than the print version?

    Yes, but just a little. The story is very good and the audio just makes it stand out.


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

    Darkest Lies and Darkest Seduction, because both stories emphasize just how important the woman are to these man. It also show more camaraderie and understanding within the couples.


    What about Max Bellmore’s performance did you like?

    Excellent as always


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Secrets Revealed


    Any additional comments?

    This series reminds me a little of Christine Feehan's Dark Series.

    "It's no secret, this book is great."

    As noted on the previous audiobooks, I have been enjoying this series. Not my favorite but defiantly good enough for me to listen to the whole series, short stories are fun too. Favorite in the series is still The Darkest Kiss. Must be read in order to enjoy it fully. Recommend author Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series or Nalini Singh Psy-Changling series both awesome.

    Story
    "Loving this Series Again"
    What made the experience of listening to The Darkest Secret the most enjoyable?

    I loved the vunerability of Amun. I really loved the fact that he's a Lord yet he is vulnerable for the first half of the book and yet he's fair and extremely patient.


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

    I loved Max Bellmore and his narration. He brought about a great cadence. Each character had a different identity and and it was easy to identify each.


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

    I loved the fact the the trials that Amun and Haidee went through ended up teaching them a lesson at the very end. It also left you with a sense of suspense when you think one thing and yet the author allows you to be satiated at the very end.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book and I also recommend that you read these books in order.

    "I love the Series... this was just OK"
    Would you try another book from Gena Showalter and/or Max Bellmore?

    Yes, I am really enjoying the series. These couple of books I've read in the series have not been my favorite. Though Darkest Passion was the worse, Darkest Secret, while not bad just kind of seem to lose focus. The whole story seemed like the author was kind of brainstorming without a true direction.


    Has The Darkest Secret turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I really want to finish the series as I need to know what will happen to Paris, William and Torren. Just hope it gets back on track. Seems to have been rambling with Secrets.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Like the dialogue between Defeat and the Harpee.


    Do you think The Darkest Secret needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nah... I don't think I could take it.
