Book Summary
 In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, #1 New York Times bestselling 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.


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.


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.


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?
My Review
As this series continues, I find myself falling in and out of love of book boyfriends but storyline too. Sometimes they feel like a repeat. And theme of virgins gets tiring over time. However, KC knows how to write a book. And a 3.5 heart book for her, would be a five heart book for others. So, not judging ratings against other books, just in relation to her own, have I given this book 3.5 hearts.
What I loved about the book was the adventure. Some of my favorite books in this series revolved around Indiana Jones like adventures. My favorite of all the guys next to the demon vamp, is my werewolf early in the series. I can’t remember his name at the moment. But anyway, they were in a jungle.
What I didn’t like about the book was the use of interruptions to stop intimacy in the story. This is a pet peeve of mine and may not bother others. I give an author one pass and if that author does it more in the story, that’s a total turn off for me. Thus the rating decrease.
But that wasn’t the only thing that bothered me. But the only one that impacted my rating. The other thing I hated was Lanthi and how she allowed others to destroy something. (no spoilers) And frankly her own actions. But can’t love them all.
All in all, it was a good read and I have no regrets.
Audio Review
Robert Petkoff is the master of voices and can he do a seduction like no other.
My book boyfriend is Thronos. (Since this model is on the cover, I'll stick with him)
