I'm a massive fan of this series, and have been reading them since they were published paperback years ago. I read the first 6, and have now had the chance to come back and reread the entire series now that the final book is due out in a few weeks (I marathoned all 8 of the ones out now over a few days).

First off:these books really should be read as each trilogy when possible. I'll posting much of this review for every book, though in this case it's for the first book in the second trilogy, or book 4 overall.

Let's get the good and easy stuff out of the way. To start off, let me say i recommend the first trilogy to everyone I know. It is extremely well written, has a fantastic plot, mesmerizing characters, and perhaps most importantly, a setting that is utterly amazing. The setting is something that doesn't appear too often in most of the fantasy books that are released in the English speaking world, exploring a Chinese mythology setting of gods. Much like how Percy Jackson focuses on the Greek/Roman gods, or Dresden Files tries to incorporate the whole damn thing, this one focuses on characters like the Four Winds and the Jade Emperor. So anyone who has read lots of fantasy should definitely give this a shot, because it's such a breath of fresh air that it is amazing.

So anyway, long story short: I highly recommend the first trilogy (the Dark Heavens trilogy, consisting of White Tiger, Red Phoenix, and Blue Dragon).

Now the downsides. As much as it pains me to admit it, Kylie Chan's writing gets steadily worse and worse as the series progresses. Some brief almost non-spoiler background on the series: so the central plot point of the series deals with a character John Wu, and how he will eventually have to leave his young daughter for quite a few years. Emma, the main character, was originally hired as a nanny for the daughter, and eventually fell in love with her and her father (different types of love obviously). So the first trilogy, as mentioned previously, is amazing, while the second trilogy starts after John has left, with an 8 year time skip.

So the second trilogy, alas, starts to slightly drag, because there's almost a genre shift. It has become less action/drama/family, and has become far more political (and dealing with traditions). That's not to say those things are bad, but combined with some Deus Ex Machina plot devices, main antagonists that popped up out of nowhere, and suddenly turning the main female lead from a badass-warrior-in-training-mother-bear-of-awesomeness character.... she becomes dreadfully boring at times. To be perfectly honest, the entire 2nd trilogy seemed like filler episodes that producers put in because the plot can't happen yet for various reasons. Don't even get me started on randomly giving the main heroine several types of death-wishes. Both she and Leo [the bodyguard/family retainer], who are strong characters that are easy to love and relate to, turn into single-characteristic cutouts that become impossible to relate to.

I mention this as fair warning because I so thoroughly love the first trilogy, and it rather annoys ME when series I love drop in quality. Anyway, to sum up the review - please please please give the first trilogy a shot, but fair warning that it goes downhill after that

Another wonderful book in the series. Yes I said series not trilogy. The story line is great, the characters (good & bad) can create empathy with the reader. However, I doubt that anyone can fully appreciate "Earth to Hell" without reading the first three books in the previous "trilogy" (White Tiger, Red Pheonix, & Blue Dragon). Since they provide full background for Earth to Hell, and follow-on books ("Hell to Heaven" & "Heaven to Wudang") they are well worth purchasing and reading first. A wonderul series, but not really a trilogy in my estimation. Kylie Chan is a gifted writer and I intend to buy/read anything she writes.

Kyle Chan is doing a great job of keeping the story line moving at an exciting pace. The twists and turns are keeping me up late at night. Emma is a great multifaceted , multi-god/creature that Kylie seems to be able to weave the thread of her " human-ness" into regardless of what form or aspect she appears in. Can't wait to start the next novel.

What a disappointment. I was really looking forward to this book, having enjoyed the other 3 so much, but honestly I think they cut corners on editing or something.

First of all, I honestly can't figure out what the main plot line was. There was just so much going on, all at once sometimes. There was no one thread to hang on to that the others wove through, it was a hot mess of subplots fighting for domination. I guess the Leo subplot won, but it didn't dominate most of the book.

Second, since this book focused on Emma's job as with the celestials, you see them a lot. since they all have more than one name that got very confusing and she did nothing to help you out- no visual assistance or anything, and sometimes she would switch from one name to another. Often she introduced new characters with very little explanation and to the English speaker the names are similar enough you'd wonder whether it was someone you were supposed to know. I spent a lot if time lost even having Chinese family and having read the first trilogy.

Third, it was boring. Seriously, I didn't care about a lot of it.

And lastly, Emma came off as a terrible guardian and as a total doormat. People would say cruel, nasty things or try to kill her or whatever and she would say "I don't blame them." What? That isn't the sassy warrior bride we got to know in the first trilogy! And Simone is 15 and Emma is saying "she needs to make that decision, I can't push her" and is too busy to help her with school- not sure if this is a cultural difference, but I have a 15 year old daughter and she still needs a parent. It made me dislike her and want to slap her silly.

So overall not good. Undecided whether to give the next book a try. I am not sure why a book without John was even done. He made the books.

I am trying to develop a following for this series.

I have not read any other urban fantasy series set with Taoist mythology, so in that Kylie Chan's series stands virtually alone. It's inventiveness and exciting characters make up for Chan's inexplicable tendency to fast forward past the battle scenes. She does a better job in the later books, but in these earlier books, it's very evident that Chan does not like describing fights.

I really enjoy this series, mainly because you never know what is going to happen next.(everyone is a god, and everyone is feuding, and there are demons everywhere and the main character is caught in between). It is also refreshing that the other seems to know what she is talking about with the pantheon hierarchys.( she seems to know what she is writing about)
... and things haven't stood still for Emma and the cast of characters from the first trilogy in this series (which was called Dark Heavens). This book gets you and the characters firmly settled in the heavens and deals a lot less with the Earthly than the first trilogy did. Get ready for another wild ride with this family of characters. It's well worth the read.
