#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole continues her electrifying Immortals After Dark series with this thrilling tale, revealing secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals…
Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown by offering up the soul of his lovely new captive, Elizabeth Peirce. Yet the young human soon tempts him beyond reason.
Ellie Peirce’s life was a living hell—even before an evil immortal abducted her. Though he plans to sacrifice her, the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, she surrenders her body, while vowing to protect her heart.
In one month, Lothaire must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will he succumb to the miseries of his past...or risk everything for a future with her?
Always a good read
Kresley Cole knows how to weave a story with just enough suspense, love, hate, revenge, pain, and redemption. She makes the reader look at those around them and wonder.... I swear I saw a Demon wearing a large hat on the bus yesterday. Every time I go to a bar I see nymphs,Valkyrie and witches galore:). I have read every book she's published and was so very very pleased by this one! But please please PLEASE don't leave Phenix alone much longer!!! Write her an immortal worthy of her :D.
One of Kresley's best
As usual this author doesn't disappoint. I would suggest that any new reader of the IAD series not start with this book. It will be appreciated much more if you have a little history with these characters. The book is wonderful but not for the faint of heart.
BEST Thus Far
I’ve been eating through this series, about 1 book per day. Obviously she is overdue for my review.
However, I am glad I waited because I was incredibly impressed and delighted by this book and it might be my favourite (Demon From the Dark is a close second).
There is a lot of depth and dimension created in the two main characters. I think she (and her husband assisting at Deadline-thirty) really nailed this one. Both characters ended up feeling very real with the fickle nature of intelligent beings. It feels like she added much more internal dialogue to them than any of the characters prior in the series and this reeled me in. Although I confess, I’ve skipped a couple books and bounced around out of order.
I also loved that it was longer than the others and didn’t follow a similar conclusion pattern. The characters had several more ups and downs than other couples from the series; their relationship development was more complicated and I think this also added a very genuine feel, more suspense, and ultimately more reader satisfaction.
I know the author has continued writing other series, but I hope she got enough positive feedback from Lothaire to consider applying its methods to her other character development and story developments.
Love it! 👏🏼👏🏼
