From New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes this scorching tale of a demon outcast poisoned with vampire blood and the vulnerable young witch he vows to protect—even from himself.
A DANGEROUS DEMON SHE CAN’T RESIST . . .
Malkom Slaine: tormented by his sordid past and racked by vampiric hungers, he’s pushed to the brink by the green-eyed beauty under his guard.
A MADDENING WITCH HE ACHES TO CLAIM . . .
Carrow Graie: hiding her own sorrows, she lives only for the next party or prank. Until she meets a tortured warrior worth saving.
TRAPPED TOGETHER IN A SAVAGE PRISON . . .
In order for Malkom and Carrow to survive, he must unleash both the demon and vampire inside him. When Malkom becomes the nightmare his own people feared, will he lose the woman he craves body and soul?
As you can see by the links above, I love the Immortals After Dark series. I have read all the books and can't wait for each and every book she writes in this series. I liked the fresh new things that were in this book. Ms. Cole is definitely setting the scenes for future couples to come and even introduces some new characters types (I loved that one of the new yucky lore creatures is a sub-class of bugs) I know this from looking up Mantises on Wiki today...Anyway, there was a lot of fresh new blood in this book, it was nice and refreshing. not that Scottish werewolves (and we have a new one) will ever get old.
I honestly think this is my favorite Kresley Cole book to date. The sexy demons are getting to be more and more delicious and I hate to say it but they are starting to beat out those lovely werewolves...I know, I know. *dodges rocks and lettuce* I love that the characters in this book had substantial issues to get over, not just the usual "female fighting the attraction" thing, I mean communication is very important in a relationship and I think Ms. Cole found some excellent solutions to some of the couples' problems. I love how freaking awesome Carrow is, she is strong and kick-ass, like most of the lore women, and she is just so awesome...yes, I am aware I am gushing. I also love the sexy Malkom, he is just delicious man-meat with yummy demon horns....I am seriously developing a love for the demons.
Ms. Cole sets up this entire story so well and introduces the new characters sprinkled throughout seamlessly. The plot is fast, I was done with the book far faster than I would have wanted and there is enough action and actual plot to keep everyone happy. On that note, this book is steamy...crazy hot, no one, and I mean no one, (that I have read yet) writes with as much heat and raw yearning that Ms. Cole is able to capture in her books. I adore every single book in this series and can't wait to read more and more to come. Also....I WANT NIX'S STORY!
