Publisher's Summary

In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, number one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole spins a sultry tale of a mighty warrior scarred inside and out and the beguiling sorceress with the power to heal him - or vanquish him forever.
Eternal Obsession
As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.
Endless Yearning
Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.
Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance?
With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

No one does it like Kresley Cole

Few authors manage to keep a complex storyline fresh through so many books (14) like Kresley Cole. Throughout the series Cole has paired the most unusual but credible characters who are each so different, with different challenges and personalities. But in this installment we finally get an inkling as to the method for the madness in delicious returns of recurring characters like Nix. In this tale we get glimpses into why Nix has been meddlingg since the beginning of the series, and we get further direction into Nix's own story arc.

What has surprised me so much is how so many books she wrote in the series have a point-in-time intersection in the immortal prison island and then each expand outward in different plots. Many of these such as Declan and Regin, Malkom & Carrow, Uiellum & Chloe and of course the incomparable lunatic Lothaire ( recent books preceding Dark Skye), follow a similar outline of epic obstacles in the fantasy multi-verse, romantically resistant characters, but feature such richly detailed stories they each stand out and alone.

Cole's uniqueness in this genre is her ability to weave complex but riveting adventurous tales of romantic pursuit, with strong physical desires that become tempered by intense self-sacrificial love. While Cole doesn't hold back describing erotic scenes, one isn't struck by the gratuitous nature of the scenes, but a furthering of the growing bonds between our two heros.

Of course, the series wouldn't be so wonderful to listen to had anyone but Robert Petkoff been the performer. Petkoff's versatility in voices and accents is astounding. I've listened to around 500 audiobooks in the past few years, and few compare to his flawless and compelling delivery.

If you are new to Kresley Cole, note that the price of the audiobooks is one of the best buys in romantic fiction. Superb writing, excellent suspense and adventure, crazy poignant love stories and some of the best audio performance out there--the prices of many of the books in this series are well below a credit and making it the best bang for your romance buck.

Strongly recommend this book for credit or cash.

EVERY HOUR LOST IN WRITING THIS IT WAS SO WORTH IT

Well KC's done it again.... she's given her fans a funny, touching, exciting, emotional, mesmerising and action-packed story that's hauntingly touching as the friendship between the doomed young Immortals all too soon turns into hate and obsession. But, as the now scarred and damaged Thronos, finally captures Lanthe and their perilous journey begins trust, belief, faith in each other, love and plenty of sex gives them the HEA. However, in true KC style there's still more open mouthed shocks, surprises and twists still to come.

And, as usual, it was read by the Maestro of Narrators RP who brings to life a whole host of characters and creatures and gives each well-written sentence just the right vocal inflection so you feel the thrill, or the sadness or the joy as if you were there experiencing it with them. KC and RP what a team, I'm standing up applauding you both for jobs well done.... now please give us an encore.

Worth a credit? I've happily already used 14 credits on the IAD series and, if KC keeps writing them, then I'll gladly keep spending them.... so that folks is a big fat YES.
