Publisher's Summary

The Warlord Wants Forever...the sensually charged novella that started it all, now with an exclusive excerpt from MacRieve!
In this scorching series opener, New York Times best seller Kresley Cole introduces the captivating Immortals After Dark series. The book also includes an exclusive extended excerpt from MacRieve, the highly anticipated next installment in the series.
The Warlord
Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his bride, the one woman who can "blood" him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body - and soul.
The Seductress
Famed throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, Myst has devoted her life to protecting a magical jewel and to fighting the vampires.
Wroth provides her with the perfect opportunity to torment her sworn enemy - for with his new heartbeat comes a consuming sexual desire that can be slaked only by her. Denying him, she flees, struggling to forget his searing, possessive kiss.
The Hunt is on
She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen her enchanted jewel, giving him absolute power over her. Now that she's his for the taking, he intends to make her experience firsthand the agonizing, unending lust she subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Nikolai realizes he wants far more than vengeance from Myst and frees her, will she come back to him?

Robert Petkoff made me buy it

Love all the IAD series, but had skipped this one. So glad they remade the audible with R.P. Great story and makes me want to start over with the rest of the series. Noticed audible doesn't seem to have pre order on upcoming releases, hope the will consider giving us that to look forward to (as long as R.P. is the narrator).

Wonderful new beginning

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it is a revamped version of the original but most importantly because it now has the right narrator! Robert Petkoff was meant to be the narrator of this entire series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Myst--it was like getting to meet her all over again.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, It was just as phenomenal as the other IAD books he has narrated.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did.

Any additional comments?

So many Easter eggs dispersed in this that give hints as to what is to come in the series. Great new beginning.

Good Prequel for the Immortals After Dark Series.

Tales of Valkyries, Vampires and ghouls . This is a prequel to the series 'Immortal After Dark'.
It tells the story of Myst and Nikolai Wroth which is an important relationship in later books. Powerful story as always with a good narration by Robert Petkoff.
Parts of this and later books in the series can be sexually graphic so if you don't like that sort of thing don't read it. For me it doesn't matter either way but I do prefer attentive kind love.

A hot start to a great series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have read all the books in this series & now enjoying the audio versions, would definitely recommend to anyone who loves steamy paranormal romance stories.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes I have & enjoy his narration & male voices, but have never enjoyed his females voices, but that hasn't discouraged me from purchasing any books that Robert Petkoff has narrated.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes thoroughly enjoyed this book & could have listened to it all in one sitting.
