Publisher's Summary

An ancient darkness from the time of humanity's original sin. From the distant past, when Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, he rose. Half man, half creature, a fallen angel. He creates Children of the Night, who feed on blood. Risen from the underworld, he walks the earth for eternity as punishment and now punishes all those who cross him.

He’s forever searching, a hunger that can never be satisfied until he finds what he seeks.

He must find the Mother of Light to restore balance to humanity, but some would stop at nothing to prevent the dark and the light from coming together.

Lies, romance, deceit, extreme violence, murder, betrayal, drama, suspense.

Please be advised, this book contains adult language and sexual content.

This book is not for the faint-hearted. Listen with caution!

NOT YOUR TYPICAL VAMPIRE NOVEL

FATHER OF DARKNESS BY J.MAFIA and narrated by GAVIN MCALLISTER & VIVIENNE LaRue.

First off: If you have young children, I dont think this is for them. The language is rough and the sex is no holds barred! That being said, FATHER OF DARKNESS is not your typical Dracula book. Father, or Legion is thousands of years old yet looks and acts to be in in his thirties Vampires live and rule the world and the humans cooperate with their kind. The vampires live in clan like atmosphere's where Father rules them all. You break Father's rules and the whole of the clan will be wiped out!


I really grew to like Father,even though he can be a bit harsh in his punishments. Father has his problems. He must keep his children in order and he is , and has found his chosen one. The warnings on the book should not be taken lightly when selecting the book. When they say caution,the author means caution! I did like the narrators. Gavin McAllister and Vivienne LaRue did a great job.

I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.

Insipid Mashup

Sorry, I hate to write negative reviews but this one really got to me...for over 11 hours! The Father of Darkness is all-powerful and older than Adam & Eve. Yet, when he finally finds his "true mate," he loses her for months?!? During this time she is tortured by her boyfriend. Not to worry, she suddenly appears at his university to become his teacher's assistance. Oh, and it turns out (beyond her knowledge) that she's the Mother of Light and also all-powerful. I could give you dozens of examples, but no, just leave it to say it's a poorly written, meandering story of a vampire/mythology mashup.

Captivating

This is my first book by this author and I am blown away. Captivating, mind blowing and page turning good. Look forward to more books by this author.

Lots going on

First the narrator were great. I did have it adjusted to run a little faster so it took me 9 instead of the 11 hours. But I like it faster then most.

The story was a whole nothing there. I struggled with it. There is a lot going on. In this book. Like drama at every turn. Some things just didn't make sense to me and I really didn't enjoy the but sure she was kidnapped that was excisive.

I finished it as I'm a little OCD about finishing books, but I won't be able to sit through the next one.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST 💖💖💖💖💖👍😍

I ORGINALLY was searching for a new vampire fantasy series to listen to and was absolutely going to purchase this audiobook and all that come out before even fully listening to the story entirely and unbelievably amazing as this author is she ended up providing me with a free copy and I just had to have it and I honestly can’t believe how phenomenal this was and more you won’t be disappointed and I insanely and tremendously recommend trying this if you are already looking for something like this you’ll be happy you did!!!
Additionally, I wanted everyone else to know if you contact her quickly before it’s all gone she giving away a limited number of free copies on audible for you to get the same opportunity like me and I can’t stress enough about how much you would regret not doing so. Send her a message via messenger search for author J Mafia and you’ll find her she’ll be the kindest person as well 💖💚

Heart wrenching!

Be prepared to be drawn into Legion's world. You will feel his pain, share his joy, and feel compassion for his murderous rage. Whether you listen to it or read it, you won't want to stop. Looking forward to the next installment! Congrats J Mafia, my new dark hero.

wonderful

A wonderful story full of drama and excitement. A great mixture of fantasy and real life scenarios; with love, lust, violence, heartbreak and triumph rolled into one story. Excitement in every chapter that keeps you listening for more.

I can’t wait for book 2

I went into this not knowing what to expect but wow it’s so good . Legion is the father of darkness he’s walked the earth since Adam and Eve took the Apple and he’s been waiting for her one true mate . There are things trying to keep them both apart but he makes sure everyone knows to protect her even if it leaves him at peril. Both narrators did a great job and I’m eagerly awaiting book 2 .
