Another beast getting his female and it is so much fun! Good story, lots of characters but easy to follow and little bits to remind you of past stories and of course the best of narrators! This is #7 and I am a follower to the end!

The arch nemesis match-up was a cool idea, and I liked that Kresley Cole jumped straight away into Rydstrom’s story after Cadeon’s because Woede’s about-face towards the end of book 6 left me dying to know the cause. This installment was probably one of the hottest thus far, but that actually worked against KISS OF A DEMON KING; the couple felt as though they were an island unto themselves instead of part of the Lore, and the quest for the crown was downgraded to a minor concern. This novel was second to last for me in the IMMORTALS AFTER DARK series.
I don’t do well with plots that revolve around one setting, and granted this tale had more than that; however the bulk of the events unfolded either in Sabine’s dungeon, or Rydstrom’s demon camp, and it grew stale after a while. And, not just because of the limited scope, but also due to the monotony of the action. Sex is inherently redundant as is torture—cut, thrust, repeat—so after a couple of chapters of this, déjà vu set in. It also isolated the characters from the rest of the IAD universe, and as a result this audio felt disconnected from the whole.
Villains can be as captivating as protagonists, so Sabine’s evilness wasn’t the trait that turned me off from her plight. I liked that she stayed true to her course, and that finding love didn’t change her basic nature. Rothkalina never denied that she was a liar, a thief, and a master manipulator, but when the gloves came off there was nothing extra beneath the surface. Her sole redeeming quality was her devotion to her sister, Lanthe, otherwise there was absolutely no depth to her personage. She was just an empty shell of discontent.
I’ve been admiring Rydstrom from afar for several installments now, and was looking forward to seeing the Demon King in all of his raging glory. Imagine my disappointment when he spent the majority of this audiobook chained to a bed! He was all bark, and no bite; the only place that his furor came through was in Robert Petkoff’s narration which hasn’t wavered in its awesomeness since IAD #1. This was the second so-so volume that was much improved by his performance, and I’m grateful for his steadfastness at times like this when Cole’s writing slips.
KISS OF A DEMON KING will please BDSM listeners, but frustrate substance seekers. ~3.5 Stars
The narrator is awesome! Kresley Cole does not disappoint! So glad I found this series! As someone else had said Kresley Cole is an automatic purchase. You know it will be good.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book was so good. Hot, funny, sweet and sour. I loved both Sabine and Rydstrom's characters, there was so much depth to them. I like the fact that they were not perfect. Kresley Cole sure knows how to turn them out. To date I have gobbled up her books and I cannot wait for more. Defiantly read in order. Each book is an adventure full of lore, romance, action, and great characters. And the cherry on top is the sexy narrator. If you like this book I recommend Sherrilyn Kenyon, Larissa Ione, Thea Harrison and Gena Showalter.
