Wow what a great story! Cadeon is so sexy and his voice is yummy. Love a sexy demon! Really enjoyed the heroine Holly too, an OCD Valkyrie, just awesome! They had great chemistry and some serious hot and steamy sex! Just love the way the way the author really pays attention to the characters and the character development in her books. This entire series so far has been so great, its hard to stop listening.
The narrator is just fantastic!! I can't even put into words how much he has made these stories come to life!
I've loved reading since I first learned. However, as a victim of motion sickness Audible is a savior. Getting my fix on the go!
Kresley Cole writes less formulaic romance novels than most. After many of the books in this series, I'm still not bored.
Robert Petkov's performance is excellent. I often think, "Is that really a man?" when he performs the female dialogue. A feat for an audio book narrator.
I'm going to keep listening to Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark, as long as Robert Petkov is performing!
I'm semi-retired at 67 and a recent Cancer survivor.
I LOVED this book...everything about it. The characters, the writing, the performance, the mythology and, above all, the HUMOR. There is a recurring Valkyrie (well, actually the proto-Valkyrie) named Nix...otherwise known as Nucking Futs Nix. I ADORE her and her role in these books. As for the story, even though there is a degree of predictability, the entertaining dialogue and marvelous Robert Petkoff certainly make it a worthy listen.
Kresley Cole does it again! This story details Cadeon, one of the demon brothers, who is on a mission to help his brother Ridestrom reclaim his throne. Toss his fated mate into the equation and you've got an action packed, funny, and sexy paranormal tale that will not disappoint. I really enjoy the characters in this series, and am eager to get started on the sixth book!
If I really find one version, print or audio of a book special, the I get the other version. I have both of this book.
I find the sex scenes in Cole's books a bit repetitive and the same. It is the characters that draw me the most..
I will give any book a try if he is the narrator.
It is a book I would take on a long trip by car or plane
I give it up for Robert Petkoff this man is gifted. The accent was phenomenal. He just get better and better. KC is an auto buy for me. Robert just makes it sweeter.
So many books...so little time! :)
For once he wants to prove them all wrong, and in order to make things right he must give up what he has looked for his entire life and has finally found...his mate. Cadeon has been a consistant disappointment to his brother as well as to his people, and no one thinks he can do this. At the same time however, neither does he.
Holly, who has recently changed into her true valkarye self, is thrown into a world of chaos as she runs for her life with the help of Cadeon, from daemons and vampires who are trying to kill her to stop a prophecy that she is the center of.
While they both try really hard to keep their distance from each other...despite the 24hour contact. They can't, however, deny the obvious chemistry.
During the entire book...you are constantly wondering what Cadeon is going to do, and well I was really surprised!! But considering it is Kresley Cole...need I say more!?!? :)
This was another great book in the series...now it is on the next!!
Another solid installment from Cole-Petkoff. This series is perfect for someone who wants a good mix of action, comedy and regular intervals of sexy time. Do I find myself getting irritated by character choices on occasion, or think some of the plot is a bit contrived? of course. But does that bother me? Hell no! I listen to this series for 2 reasons: there is enough hotness mixed in with a fun adventure to satisfy the perv in me and Robert Petkoff does the best male voices for romantical books that I have heard to date. These should be required reading for anyone into paranormal romance with alpha male characters. And they are only $10 a pop, so you don't even have to wait for a credit. It will be worth the low price.
I truly enjoyed the self development of the female lead from someone who has a brilliant mind but is afraid to step into the spotlight, to someone who ends up as a self empowered, strong willed & when required; delightfully vicious individual. This is a recipe for a female lead that has been tried & proved true for Kresley Cole in several of her books, and I am still a sucker for it!.The male lead in this story is quite the reluctant hero; a hot tempered /thrill seeking/ secretly soft hearted demon and with a twisted (but pretty comical) view of the world around him. Add the vocabulary talents of a sailor, and you have the perfect alpha male antidote for a woman trapped in a life of compulsive order & organization in order to hide her "not so usual" nature.
I have a small section in my paranormal heart for all the lead characters created by kresley cole, as she has been able to make them all unique & redemption worthy in their own way. This volume proved to be no exception to that rule, and I found myself quickly enthralled by the characters, and their journey. Surprisingly, it was not one of the main leads of this story that provided the "scene stealer" moments for me, but the blunt & spacey interventions by "Nucking Fuds Nix"!
This one falls right into place with all the other wonderful performances by Robert Petkoff!.
I know in the past I remarked that i needed to get used to his interpretation of th female character voices: well.... either he improved, or I got used to it: but he is by far my favorite Audible narrator!. Trust me on this, just sample the Audio to listen to his voice and you will understand why he is such a perfect match to this series.
yes, and might I add that I hold both Kresley Cole & Robert Petkoff personally responsible for the frequent appearance of those darn dark baggies under my eyes; a girl needs her sleep you know!. ( well, at least this human girl does)
