A nice quick read

Book 0.5 of the Lords of the Underworld, a novella preceding The Darkest Night. A very short story of Kadence, the goddess of Oppression and Geryon, the guardian of the wall of the underworld. Sad, as we already know that Pandora's box was constructed from the Goddess' bones - so already we know she must die. Not my favourite story.

This is the prequel to The Darkest Night and in my opinion was really unnecessary it didn't really have anything to do with the other books.

This is a stand alone story, but I think it will grab your attention, as it did mine, just like the rest of the "Lords of the Underworld" series has. This is the story of how Pandora's Box was created.
I highly recommend the series

Darkest Fire, available so far only as an e-book, is a short story that is a prequel to the Lords of the Underworld series but it is completely standalone, no Dark possessed Lords here. Instead it is the story of the origins of the box which originally imprisoned the demons before being intrusted to Pandora. It is a beauty and the beast style romance between the beastly Guardian of the Gate to the Underworld and the beautiful Goddess of Opression whose strength keeps the walls of the Hell intact and the demons (lust, death, wrath, disease...) from being unleashed on the mortal world. It very much has the same type of feel as P.C. Cast's Goddess of the Rose with the romance between a creature that sees himself as so ugly that doesn't dare to hope that the beauteous object of his affection could see beyond his skin to his noble heart, it also has a similar type of bittersweet happily ever after. Now that the books are out it's a brief 'just so' historical note to the series, since the box is what got all the Lords into an eternity of trouble.
