I’ve been on the hunt for more Lykae ever since Lachlain MacRieve, although I must admit that Kresley Cole’s vampires, demons, Valkyrie and witches have tested my loyalties a few times. This latest installment sure did push me to my limits, and Malkom was primarily to blame for that. His wounds were so fresh that I could smell the blood, and all I wanted to do was to play nurse, and kiss all of his ouchies. Plus, he’s a Vemon, and who doesn’t love two hunky supes for the price of one!? #AmIRight.
Every so often a paranormal couple will strike a chord with me, and Malkom & Carrow did just that. Both of them wore their emotions on their sleeves, and that was further amplified by this author’s stand-out writing style. The lead couple’s thoughts, and feelings radiated from the pages of this book, and I loved how they got from A to HEA, and everything in the middle. The chemistry between these two, even with a language barrier, was unbelievable.
The story meshed well with the main arc, and it’s been a while since Cole worked in a new type of paranormal, so that was gravy. There were some laugh-out-loud moments which was unexpected given that a good sized chunk of this novel takes place in Hell, and given the long list of crap that Malkom’s suffered through. Carrow fully discovered her power thanks to Slaine, and he found happiness, so that was some nice karma.
Robert Petkoff didn’t really need to do much to make this audiobook a 5-star listen; however his tantalizing accents, ability to let loose for any scene regardless of its nature, and just his knack for all things IMMORTALS AFTER DARK in general. Malkom’s vulnerability and Carrow’s devotion to Ruby came through loud and clear, and speaking of the seven year old witch, Petkoff can even narrate kids impeccably.
DEMON FROM THE DARK is definitely a book that I can see myself listening to again, and again.

Kresley Cole has written a 5 star book, again! Robert Petkoff is the voice of Demon from the Dark! Oh who am I kidding, Robert Petkoff is the best! His Scottish Accent, well, I could listen to him reading the newspaper or a cereal box. That's how good Mr. Petkoff is! Audible I want more of Kresley Cole's Demons and Robert Petkoff's voice. :)

It made me feel that love can arrive at any time and in the most unexpected ways
Who was your favorite character and why?
Malkom Slaine...he was such a tortured soul, that it was a joy to watch him open up his heart to love.

He is the master of voices - I love his deep vampire ones and he does an amazingly believable job with females.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
They were brought together by deception, but found the healing power of love

What can I say about Malkolm Slaine, the tormented hero of the story. I loved him. He melted my heart from the get go. Carrow, the heroine was an equally fantastic lovable character. Their story was beautiful and has become my favourite of the series. The humour was as always, brilliant. I laughed my head off. I also cried for the first time in this series. I re listened to it immediately upon finishing it, it was that good.
As always, Robert Petkoff was outstanding. His narration is so perfect for this series it's crazy. He literally lives the story. Amazing narrator.
Any additional comments?
Another good instalment in the IAD series. Malcolm is one intense vemon (demon / vampire) who is seduced by the wild witch Carrow. One betrayal leads these two on a collision course of lies, new responsibilities, trust & a lusty life threatening journey.
nice to read the book where the hero is being chased and not the heroine.
I'm loving these witches, they have spunk
