Cadeon Woede has been trying to make up for a careless act 900 years ago that caused his elder brother’s kingdom to fall into their enemies hands. The same enemies that murdered his entire foster family and Cadeon, a Rage Demon is more than ready to atone for his sins. All he has to do is deliver the Vessel (a chosen female of Lore who will beget a child who will become a warrior of ultimate good or evil) to hand over to a wicked sorcerer. In exchange, Cadeon will receive a special weapon capable of defeating his enemy in order to restore the kingdom to his brother’s hands. Unfortunately, for Cadeon the Vessel just happens to be Holly Ashwin a beautiful, brilliant young woman he has had his eye on for months thinking she just might be his life mate. And now that he’s kidnapped her, he KNOWS she is his mate – so does he keep her or turn her over to the evil sorcerer?
I have been following Ms. Cole’s Immortals After Dark series and each and every book just gets better and better! What I love is any kind of paranormal being you can think of generally show up in Cole’s Lore world and it is simply fascinating. Although, I have to say, I am very partial to the Valkyries - they are a hoot and unbelievable warriors with a heck of a sense of humor (even if they’re not aware of it).
Cadeon had been attracted to Holly, for a while and thought she was human. Discovering that she was in truth the ‘vessel’ and a valkyrie as well was a definite shock. However, Ms. Cole focused her attention on the adventure and Cadeon doing everything in his power to both keep Holly alive and not give in to temptation. The descriptions of demons, specifically ‘rage demons’ was amazing. And the most wonderful aspect of this audio was the impressive narration by Robert Petkoff who did both male and female voice-overs amazingly well – a terrific performance.
Bottom line: This was, as found in every Immortals After Dark book was sensual, quirky, and complete with bad-ass heroines who generally provide the humor that make these books so deliciously wonderful! Kresley - you go girl!
I love Cadeon's character and accent.
When Cade first sees Holly, he is struck dumb. So sweet!
I have no complaints. He is magnificent!!
I tried...I really did. Good listen!
I'm contemplating naming a kid Cadeon...lol
I absolutely love to read/listen to my books. If the book is hot, I'll read it over and over again. My wish is to meet my favorite authors.
I cant stop... between kresley gina and lainey I m gonna lose my mind... literally
The Story was full of adventure and enthralling. I absolutely loved these two characters. Kresly Cole never fails to hold you captive with her writing skills and I never tire of Robert Petkoffs narration! I love his voice and how he brings all the characters to life. I laughed hysterically numerous times. An excellent read!
I've enjoyed every one of the Immortals After Dark series but this has been the best by far! The story was great, and as someone who also as OCD it was nice to see a love story with a character who also has it (although her illness was simplified for the book, I think)
Every bit as good as the others in the series! I loved both main characters. The narrator is amazing as usual.
With Robert Petkoff reading Kresley Cole's characters is a match made in heaven. The mixture of Petkoff's accents and Cole's bad boy with a heart of gold hero is a guarantee of a good listen. Throw in a sexy, smart as hell good girl our hero NEEDS as well as wants and I couldn't walk away.
Kresley Cole has got the pulse on what readers want in a paranormal romance. The scenes are not only too hot to handle, but the underlying story keeps me coming back for the next one. The variety of interactions between the male and female characters keeps the "romance" from getting too repetitive. The upcoming accession keeps me wanting to more and the way Kresley Cole interweaves the stories of her characters gives this series a depth that is a little unusual in this sort of guilty pleasure read.
The narration from Robert Petkoff makes me melt every time, but his South African accent is the best yet. Always partial to the Scotts, Petkoff has made me convert. I'd have never held out half as long as Holy does if Petkoff had used that accent on me. After listening to this book I had to take a cold shower.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Not my favorite in the series, but still a great addition. A road trip full of the lore, my kind of book. I liked both the characters really well. The one thing that made this story a four star instead of a five star was all the lying that Cade did. I understand why he did it, I only know that I didn't like how he went about it. I really liked the OCD part and all the back and forth going on between Holly and Cade. Kresley Cole has become an automatic download for me. Narrator is awesome.
