RITA Award-winning author Kresley Cole continues her bestselling Immortals After Dark series with this electrifying tale of a ruthless demon mercenary and the lovely young halfling who enchants him.
A seductive beauty he can never have, yet can't resist....
Cadeon Woede will stop at nothing to atone for the one wrong that will haunt him forever. But once he secures the key to his redemption, the halfling Holly Ashwin, Cade finds that the woman he thought he could use for his own ends and then forget haunts him as much as his past.
A tormented warrior she should fear, but can't deny....
Raised as a human, Holly never knew that some frightening legends are real until she encounters a brutal demon who inexplicably guards her like a treasure. Thrust into a sensual new world of myth and power, with him as her protector, she begins to crave the demon's wicked touch.
Surrender to dark desires....
Yet just when he earns Holly's trust, will Cade be forced to betray the only woman who can sate his wildest needs - and claim his heart?

Yes and No - Though I love paper back, and have every one of the IAD series in paper back, you CAN NOT beat Petkoffs preformances in the audios so far - and this latest reading just proves it!!! He is the ONLY one who should EVER be able to narrate the IAD series. He is very talented, he can turn his voice to any character (though of course being male he can't help but get the female voices a little wrong, but that just adds to the story now). With Kresleys wonderful story writing and Roberts great voices, these books are a MUST HAVE in any ones audio collection!!
In this book - Cadeon is my favourite. Robert makes him sound like Jason Statham with an african accent (and I just LOVE Jason!!).
My favourite audio and paper back book in the IAD series is Lothaire - Robert does a great arrogant/bad guy/lovable hero voice.
My favourite Robert voice in the IAD audio series so far in Roberts voice for Nix - He had a way of making her sound so ditsy yet very intelligent
You couldn't make a film out of this book without incorporating all of the IAD series...
I was all but hyperventilating while downloading this audio book. I was SSSOOOOO excited. I fell in love with the audio book LOTHAIRE when I stumbled upon it one day and haven't been able to put the IAD books or my Ipod down since. You WILL NOT regret purchasing this audio!!!!
Kresley has a wonderful style to her writing, humour, tenderness, seriousness, gore... Everything you could ask for in a paranormal series.
Robert has a fantastic way of bringing out Kresleys characters personalities. He is able to keep the same voices for different characters consistant through out the series so far. He is an absolute delight to listen to.
And with the Kresley/Robert mix I have cried, laughted and hung onto every word to the very end.
I love these books and can't wait for the next ones, from either Kresley or Robert.
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
Wicked and Hot described this book. Add in this amazing narrator whom gave life to this story. Robert Petkoff is the key ingredient and i admire him for his skillful expert narrating delivery!!
The writer did a great job of stretching this story to the max and filling out details in between. I certainly didn't feel like it wasn't too long and boring. The journey she brought me in was very enjoyable. I wouldn't change a thing.
Characters wise though... hmmmm there's something that i didn't quite put my finger on. I definitely could use a stronger more powerful hero. he seems to be too weak for holly at times.. but can't complain much! i enjoyed both of them together nonetheless. I most definitely enjoyed listening to Holly's character developed and bloomed from a weak nerdy girl into this strong powerful Valkyrie.
Loved this one. Great characters and loved straight up and honest communication between them, no diddly daddle with these two. Narration fantastic. Keeps you interested, has all aspects you want in a book, love, humor, surprises etc. Enjoy.
These books are great Kresley Cole is a very good author her characters are hilarious and extremely interesting. There have been lots of moments in these books where I've burst into laughter. My family always looks at me as if I have grown 2 heads, but its worth it. I check for more every month and have bought all available audio books, and can't wait for the rest. I've enjoyed them enough that I also own the Kindle additions so I could find out what happens next. I really hope she continues with the series and poor Nucking Futs Nix finds herself a man and a little sanity.
I normally don't go for male narrators, but Robert Petkoff has done a good job with these books.
This is not one of my favorites in the series. I was certainly looking forward to its release but not overly excited. But this book is sooo good, the audio did it for me. I thought the read was a little slow moving with the romance at first but BAM! it sure did pick up as the action did.
Cadeon is definitely one of the more human type immortals in this series. I think we all know a guy who kind of lives like him with the responsible and slobbery level. He has his crew of buddies. But nothing comes between him and his desire for his Holly.
I really like Holly shes too smart and just wacky enough to be part Valkrye. Smart enough to not jump into bed with that oh so yummy Cad. Until... Cadeon shifts gears and really inspires her with that voice and that body --- oh my you get the point. It's worth it.

I have one thing to say about Robert Petkoff reading these books....WOW!!! He is the perfect person to read these characters. Rarely do you come across an actor who can not only play all male characters very convincingly but also play female characters and make you forget it's a male reading the character. Not to mention the accents he does are spot on! He makes listening to these great stories so enjoyable I find myself getting lost in them. I'd like to hear him read Christine Feehan's books as well...he'd be perfect for those too!
Yes I have already read the book three times but every few months i will still listen to this book again it's like comfort food
All Kreisler cole books are great
He brings depth to the characters and even makes the woman sound good
No. I loved all of it that is why I can keep retreading it
Listening to it is so much better than just reading it
Petkoff needs to do ALL of the romance books ever written! He is so good. This series is one of the best paranormal romance series, and he just puts icing on the cake. I can't wait for the rest of them!
I listened to it twice. The second time through I was picking up on the hints. I can't wait for the rest of the series.
To me it was the best in the series. Robert Petkoff has to be one of the bet Narrators ever. His different voices and accents are to die for.
Avid Reader when not teaching, being a Mommy, or gamer. Loves just about anything!
Out of all the IAD series, this is the one that I have loved the most so far.
The struggle the Hero had about what to do with his female vs. saving his brother's kingdom. His inner monologue was both touching and hilarious at the same time.
Caedon Woede...I want a South African accented Rage Demon for my own.
Romancing the Stone meets Supernatural
The series needs to be produced faster, with Mr. Petkoff narrating. He is phenomoninal!
