    "so funny"

    I listen to these books while I'm at work and they always make the day go by quicker. This one however was so funny I had to stop a couple times bc I was laughing so hard. The part where they prank call the keeper of violence OhMyGosh I lost my shit. So funny.

    Story
    "Too long"

    I would have enjoyed this book more if it was 2-3 hours shorter. It was an interesting story, but just so wordy.

    Amun, the keeper of secrets, has just been rescued from hell where he had endured the awful thoughts the demons harbored, which was too much for Amun. He basically shut down to where he is catatonic or he is going berserk to where no one can soothe his demon possessed body. Well, no one except Haidee, a hunter sworn to take out the Lords. She was the very one who lured and murdered Baden, so the idea of her with a Lord wasn’t easy to swallow.
    Haidee thought Amun was her old boyfriend Micah, and that he was a prisoner of the Lords, so she planned to rescue him and avenge Amun for his suffering at the hands of the Lord. The problem was that Amun’s touch, kisses and everything seem to turn her on more than Micah used to.
    What will this hunter do when she discovers that the man she is in love with is not her beloved Micah, but one of her sworn enemy, a Lord of the Underworld?
    I liked this story, but it was too long. I was trying to figure out how Strider & Micah would fit into this love triangle/quadrangle. I did like them as a couple and I liked that Haidee acknowledged her attraction to Amun as being much stronger than Micah. I am not enjoying this series as much as I used to and I am a little hesitant to read the next book.

    Story
    "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.

    "Worst Audio book I have listened to!"
    What disappointed you about The Darkest Secret?

    Fairly good story line, but the bulk of the book is repetative porn descriptions of their sexual exploits - verrrrryyyyy tiresome!!!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not anything by this author, ever.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Darkest Secret?

    About 3/4 of the book that describes in minute detail the sexual encounters.

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    Max Bellmore does a great job narrating these books!! He does an excellent job on the female voices as well.

    "((Amun))"

    Great storyline. Just keep getting better and better. The Lords of the Underworld series are some of the greatest books I've read . . .or should I say listened too.
