I don't know if I can love a series more than I do this IAD series! Kiss of a Demon King was excellent, just as the others before it. The only negative I would say, is that it started off a little slow for me, and took longer to "hook me" than the others in the series, but it kept building and building, and got better and better!! It was kind of like a "paranormal 50 shades awakening"...a little paranormal with a side of BDSM. I'd looked forward to hearing Ridestrom's story since listening to Wicked Deeds, and I was thoroughly pleased; superbly narrated and definitely worth a credit! The next few in the series are missing---whats up Audible??!!! :( I hope to listen to them soon.
As far as I'm concerned audio books are the ONLY way to "read" a book!
There are a lot of memorable moments within this book. The erotic scenes were breathtaking in so many ways. But believe it or not, one of the most memorable moments of the book, to me, was the scene with Sabine and the dragon. I can't tell you much because I might give away some of the story.
I have never listened to Mr. Petkoff's performances before (at least I don't think so), but needless to say I LOVED his performance. He will be another one of my favorite readers whom I will look for as I shop for more books.
I am so glad that I took a chance on Kresley Cole's book, The Kiss of the Demon King. Be prepared she spares nothing when she describes the erotic scenes (let's just say my husband has really enjoyed the benefits of me listening to this book..I now call him my "Demon King"). I loved her storyline so well, I'm going to start the series at the beginning.
I love, love, love Robert Petkoff's narrations of the IAD series. Love the accents, the life he puts into the character, etc. The Kiss of the Demon king story is a continuation of Dark Desires After Dusk which follows Cadeon's brother Rydstrom Woede and Sabine (love the names by the way). If you haven't listened to the Dark Desires After Dusk first, then you'll be lost with this book. Sabine's character puts herself so high on a pedestal, it's hilarious to listen to. Love the story about demons and sorceri, but I can't wait to get to the other books back to the Valkyries and Vampires. Keep them coming KC and RP! Love this series!
I am in love with pararomance and am always trying to find new series with a great story and sizzling hot spots!
Hmmm, let's see... Kresley Cole's writing is amazing, the characters are so awesome, and Robert Petkoff is wonderful... so all these things make listening to this series to incredible. I am actually listening to each a second time. The fact that there is this whole other world she has created, with all these awesome characters that play a role in each book, and the passion between them, makes me want to also buy these books so I can sit and read them in one sitting! Of course I will hear Robert's voice the whole time, lol.
Sabine is awesome, I love how ruthless and badass she is, yet she is a bit vulnerable with being afraid of water and of course the Reckoners.
EVERYTHING. I enjoy him so much, and compare him to other performers. The only other one that compares is Tavia Gilbert.
When Sabine helps with the Basalisk.
I will continue to listen to this series and they are well worth the credit. I just wish The Warlord Wants Forever was redone with Robert's voice!
So many books...so little time! :)
Things are finally starting to look up for Rydstrom Woede and his captured kingdom. When the opportunity finally arrises for him to reclaim his throne once again, fate seems to have a different plan in store.
Sabine, the Sorceress of Illusions, on the other hand, has been trapped for so long by her evil brother, Omort, doing his bidding, but she may finally have a way out. First, however, she must capture her fated mate and seduce him, which is not as easy as it seems.
Between the two of them, they both seem to be trying to get something out of a rather intense situation, but whether they get what they were looking or what they think they were looking for is a completely different story! They may have gone into this as one person...but they won't come out of it the same!!
Yet another roller coaster of a story!! And just when you think you cannot be surprised more...Kresley Cole once again contradicts the fact that people can't change who they are.
I love Cole's previous books in this series, but after four or five attempts. I had to give up on this one. I strongly urge you to listen to the preview before purchasing.
I am always excited when I see a new book come out by Kresley Cole. I cannot wait for the whole series to finally be out on audible. Book six follows right on the heals of book 5 and many of the events in book 6 are happening at the same time as events in book 5. The two main characters in book 5 and 6 are brothers. You definitely need to listen to book 5 before you listen to this book. Robert Petkoff the narrator is one of the best narrators and does all the books in this series. You cannot go wrong with any of these books!!!
Love sci-fi books, romace books. I love to get lost into a good book.

Nicks is my favorite. In the entire series.
