A Hunger Like No Other

A Hunger Like No Other is the first book in Kresley Cole’s very popular Immortals After Dark series. Simon and Schuster recently released the audiobook version which I had really been looking forward to. The tenth book in the series, Lothaire, will be released in hardback and audio January 10th, 2 ...

Sweet Ruin

Josephine Doe had a more difficult childhood than most. Her earliest memories are of her adolescence, when she was homeless and trying desperately to take care of her baby brother. When she’s murdered and abruptly turned into some sort of ghoul, then forced out of her brother’s life, Jo allows h ...

Sweet Ruin

Sweet Ruin is the sixteenth entry in the venerable Immortals After Dark series. In a market where many paranormal romance series go off the rails or lose steam between books three and five, the IAD series has grown and expanded without losing its focus on romance. Rune Darklight is part demon, pa ...

MacRieve

While I know that an author's muse can't always take their story where the readers would prefer to go, I have to admit that I was firmly in the camp with Kresley Cole fans who were predisposed to, if not dislike, at least like Macrieve less than the previous books in the Immortals After Dark series. ...

Shadow’s Claim

When you have a long running series, it must be easy to get into a rut in terms of plot and the way the characters come together. I think this is especially true in Paranormal Romances where you build a world and work within a defined set of rules. That is why it is so impressive that Kresley Cole c ...

Lothaire

Kresley Cole is one of the few writers I know the release dates for and usually pre-order her books so I can start reading that very day. Needless to say, I’m slightly addicted to the IAD series and have been waiting for Lothaire for a long, long time and I wasn’t disappointed. Lothaire, The ...

Dreams of a Dark Warrior

Don’t read this review if you have any interest in Ms. Cole’s wildly popular Immortals After Dark series and haven’t begun reading it yet. This is the ninth book — the eleventh if you include novellas — and is chock full of information about plotlines begun in earlier books. In fact, I wou ...

Pleasure of a Dark Prince

A book that combines a road romance with a hero in pursuit and mixes in an alpha male and a strong, smart heroine is a delight for me. Throw in a whole bunch of steam and some great secondary characters and I’m there all the way. In the seventh installment of her Immortals After Dark series, Plea ...

Kiss of a Demon King

Kiss of a Demon King is the sixth installment in Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. I have found them all to be compulsively readable; the world she has created of vampires, Valkyrie, werewolves, demons, humans, assorted Fey and now, Sorceri, is well defined without being overwhelming. Prio ...

Dark Desires After Dusk

Though the Immortals After Dark series is classified as paranormal, I’d say Dark Desires After Dusk seems more like fantasy to me, which is fast becoming my favorite sub-genre. Along with the usual vampires and werewolves, you’ve got demons, Valkyrie, sorcerers, witches, phantoms, zombies, and o ...
