Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole continues her electrifying Immortals After Dark series with this thrilling tale, revealing secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory.

Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past - or risk everything for a future with her? Every addition to this series brings with it its own romantic flavour, and none of them have been repeats which after eleven novels is gosh darned impressive.
The plot threads of all that has come before continue to intermingle in startling ways, and characters reach new levels of growth even though their tale has already been, or has yet to be told. Oops, did I just say that about a seventeen year old albeit fictional man? How embarrassing. This is not Longfellow- but it's entertaining and anyone who enjoys the genre will get what they are seeking in Kresley Cole's work.
For the uninitiated- this series includes graphic sex and some violence but not to excess. The sex and violence are simply elements of the story arch and are by no means the focus.
There is a good degree of character development without overburdening the reader with useless detail. The humor is non formulaic and well suited to compliment each character making each personality distinct from one another. Of particular note is the fact that the female protag is not a simpering air head incapable of making rational decisions.
In fact, to date all the female characters I have encountered in this series have considerable backbone to compliment their femininity rather than stand in contrast to it. Robert Petkoff's narration is fantastic. He brings all the characters out individually and negotiates accents with a great deal of aplomb- especially Lothaire's. He reads females without sounding ridiculous and makes clear distinctions between characters and personalities in a way that sounds and feels effortless to the listener.
He is now one of my favorite narrators and I will actively seek more work recorded by him. Overall it was well written, well read and well produced. While it was not what I had expected or really even predicted the story was fabulous and while it was heartbreaking at times, it was the same laugh out loud Kresley Cole that I love!
I am a huge fan of her work and I can't wait for Nix's story. Lothaire has been in all the previous books in the series, this time the love story is epic because it ends up redeeming a character that was thought to be irredeemable. The almost insane vampire falls head over fangs for a woman possessed.
One thing that surprised me the most was how romantic and sweet Lothaire ended up being, Despite the blood thirsty nature of Lothaire and the initial villain, Soroya, the book wasn't nearly as dark and depressing as it could have been.
In fact, it was full of warped humor, funny dialogue between Lothaire and Elizabeth and amazing loving, once they got to that point.
The story is told in Lothaire's point of view and Elizabeth's. My favorite is the hero's because finally I got to understand what formed him, drove him, warped him and tortured him. The relationship between Lothaire and Elizabeth is contentious. She likes to talk, he doesn't. She wants to understand, he doesn't feel the need to explain himself. He commands, she butts heads. He expects her to turn her back on her past, and she fights to keep it and grab for more.
There is so much internal angst and yet the author handled it so well, it was entertaining and fascinating. I especially got a kick out of the scenes with the sword, the head, the heart and the finger and the ornery dog.
How they make this story great has to be read to be understood. It was awesome. I was equally horrified and snorting with shocked humor. Cole's characters sure know how to make a statement. All in all Robert Petkoff gives an amazing performance for this book and the rest of the IAD series books.
