The Darkest Fire (Lords of the Underworld, #0.5) by Gena Showalter

Source:  Purchased audio

He is the guardian of hell, more monster than man. She is the goddess of oppression, more angel than woman. Together they will enter the flames to battle a dangerous horde of demon lords -- and discover a passion unlike any other....

Don't miss this sizzling prequel to Gena Showalter's breathtaking new paranormal series, The Lords of the Underworld! Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive -- and unimaginably powerful....


Yep.  I started this series from the beginning after getting hooked with book three.  This prequel of novella length was great way to get started.

Pandora's box started this whole thing, right?  But where does the box come from?  And where do the demons that were locked in it come from?  This story answers those and so much more.

I am always impressed when an author can tell a compelling story is 66 pages but this one did just that.  And it's a great way to get a taste of both this author and this series.

With a little beauty and the beast flavor, this book takes a couple who have seen each other everyday for thousands of years and puts them at a crossroads.  As the gate keeper to hell, he must stay at his post.  She needs his help to stop the demons that are weakening the wall.  The feelings they have developed over the years mold their decisions and a shocking conclusion has them in each others arms.  

I loved it.  It catapulted me into reading more of this series.  I just need more of this world.
