    Summer break is over, and Raven is hardly eager to be returning to Dullsville High. Not only does school mean daily interaction with preppy pest Trevor Mitchell, but her sleep-filled days and romantic nights with her immortal boyfriend, Alexander, must come to an end. Plus the shock of morning classes isn't the only change in store.

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body - and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

    What made the experience of listening to Dark Skye the most enjoyable?

    Kresley Cole writing skills and Robert Petkoff narrating abilities make the whole series work. Together they make "Immortals After Dark" phenomenal.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Skye?

    How Thronos and Lanthe first met and his cute nick name for her. ****Spoiler Alert**** Also, it touched me at the end of the story when he was getting his memory back he used her nick name. SO... touching!


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    Honestly... all of them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wasn't ready for it to end by a long shot. I wanted more.... Kresley makes characters and stories come to life.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it NOW! You wont regret it at all. Buy the whole series if you haven't already!!!

    What disappointed you about Dead Until Dark?

    The narrator... didn't enjoy her voice at all. I'm still trying to read the story but haven't even gotten to the 3rd chapter.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The 1st book I liked Sookie the most.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Johanna Parker?

    I personally love Tavia Gilbert. I like her doing Kat and Bones in the Night Huntress series and just love how she did the voice for Denise (southern accent) in First Drop of Crimson. She would have made this audio book awesome!


    What character would you cut from Dead Until Dark?

    Personally I've never liked Sam


    Any additional comments?

    But the book it's worth a buy

    "Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day. As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past."

    It bit: New York hotels cost an arm and a leg, and Terri had flown from England to help plan her cousin's wedding. The new in-laws offered lodging. But they were a weird bunch. There was the sometimes chipper, sometimes brooding Lucern, and the wacky stage-actor, Vincent. (She couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier singing-and-dancing Dracula.) And then there was Bastien. Just looking into his eyes, Terri had to admit she was falling for him.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters and the pitfalls of wedding planning.


    What three words best describe Jeffrey Cummings’s voice?

    Not the best. I only bought the audio because I like the series and wanted to listen to it at work but he's okay but not my favorite. When he does the female voices it sounds corny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but wish I could have fell into the story and forgot I was listing to it. When I listen to Kresley Cole's series narrated by Robert Petkoff you completely step into the story and blissfully enjoy it all the way through.
