Publisher's Summary

What happens when everything you thought you knew was a lie?

That's exactly what William must face when he meets Becca one night in a local bar. Sure that he knows her, William digs deeper for information by returning to the Bottom. His curiosity, though, reveals 20 years of lies, secrets and betrayal, all at the hands of his parents.

William is thrust back into the world of vampires, conjurers and wolves when Becca is taken by an old enemy. And as a family is reunited and truths revealed, William is faced with a legacy that will change everything he thought he knew about himself, his father and the world he came from.

All that matters, though, is his growing affection for Becca. A bond forged at birth and reignited as they discover who they are and what they are meant for. And as they do, they will awaken the heir and heiress within them. Setting into motion their legacy to once again rule the Bottom World.

But first, they must die before they can live.

    "Deep Dark Secrets"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. The secrets in this story were indeed dark and deep. Two sets of triplets born to be the new rulers of the Bottom. a place where the Others went to after existing alongside humans was no longer viable. Then Victor the villain and his son get into a power play as to who is stronger. While the triplets find out after they are in their early twenties that their parents have lied to them since they were six or seven years old. The narration was very well done except when the narrator said humans. It was said as if there was no h at the beginning of the word. This was consistent throughout the book. Big giant cliffhanger at the end so be prepared. although this was almost 7 hours of listening there is no conclusion. You will have to wait on book 2 to get that.

    "COMPLEX NEW VAMPIRE WORLD"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was given to me for an honest review.
    The story is complex with a lot of characters so the first half was confusing but once the secret was revealed, everything fell into place and it rocked. There was magic and blood and parents and new love and sex and enemies and pain and fear and relief and it all ended in a cliffhanger (darn it).
    Deserves a two thumbs up!

    When William and Becca meet they unravel 20 year old secrets. Secrets that protect them and their families until the rightful Heir and Heiress awaken. This book is perfect for all paranormal lovers, I give it 4 stars. Loved the backstory, gave the book more depth. Made the story more understandable. I am impatiently waiting for the next book. I recommend this to all, especially those who like books with things that go bump in the night.

    "I liked this book but didn't love it."

    I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. I did like the storyline and the narration was ok. I think it just wasn't my thing for the moment. Overall it is worth a credit.

    Story
    "Dark and intense"

    This book is a fascinating start to a dark and intense vampire series. The plot is unapologetically rich with dark innuendo. Triplet brothers to match triplet sisters with a destiny to launch a war to claim their rightful places as heirs and heiresses to the Below. The catch is, to protect them and hide them from their enemy, their parents take their memories away from them as children. As adults their full potential needs to be quickly realised. Only the enemy is hot on their heels and may have the upper hand. I am definitely curious to find out what happens next.

    "The Surface Below"
    Any additional comments?

    Very entertaining, interesting, engaging and enjoyable. Bottom line it's a really good paranormal story. Creative and full of twists. It pulls you in immediately and never lets go. It is a little confusing at first until you get all the characters strait. Worth your time? Yes, definitely.

    Great cast of characters. Interesting and creative world. This was just a really good story. Will definitely be continuing with the series. Be warned this installment does end in a cliffhanger.

    Lori J Moran does a good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Smooth even pace. Some really good character voices. Her male character voices could use some work. Overall I enjoyed her narration. There is just something slightly off with the narration. Not quite sure what it is. Almost as though she has something in her mouth and this affects the clear pronunciation at times.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

    Story
    "Twisting full of awesome"
    What did you love best about Dark Secrets?

    The reveal was awesome and it was well plotted


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Secrets?

    I hate this question because it's hard to answer without giving spoilers. The ending or last quarter of the book.


    What about Lori J. Moran’s performance did you like?

    Great job with all the characters, good timing and consistent style


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

    The cliffhanger. I can't wait for next part of the story


    Any additional comments?

    This story was a little hard to follow at first because it had a lot of characters being introduced, but it picks up and becomes more cohesive as it progresses. Loved the amount of intrigue and suspense that was added and It set up the next book to be even better than the first. I received this audiobook from audiobook boom for free for my unbiased review.
