    "Dark Desires After Listening!!!!!!"

    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.

    "My second favorite IAD book. Narration was awesome"

    Ok. Believe the hype about Robert Petkoff. I didn't, but I do now! He was awesome, he was funny, he breathed life into this book!

    Cadeon Woede is on a quest to help recover a mystical sword which was crafted to kill a specific immortal, who stole Cadeon's brother Rydstroms kingdom.
    Everyone blames Cadeon's for the loss and he has spent the last 900 years trying to atone.
    Imagine Cadeon's dilemma when he learns the price for the sword is his fated female Holly Ashwin. To get his Rydstrom's kingdom back, he would have to trade his female for the sword. What's a demon to do?

    This was one of the most straightforward IAD books I've listened to in a while. I wasn't confused by many various characters in the Lore, as this was mostly Demon and a Harpy, with special appearances by a few other sups, but not enough to need a diagram.
    Cadeon was funny, sarcastic, rough around the edges and sweet at the same time. Holly's OCD made for an interesting read, but I loved how everyone made allowances and worked with her quirks. I really loved how Holly said she finally found a place where she fit in, and she also discovered her inner strength. She took everything that Cadeon's taught her and fought to save herself.
    Very impressed with her...and Cadeon.

    I look forward to finding out why Rydstrom has That Woman in chains:D

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Rubbing Horns"

    Okay maybe I was wrong. Robert Petkoff can do "Demon" very well too. I've been in the mood to re-visit one of my favorite paranormal series and it's been such a joy. It makes a girl want to go out and find a pair of horns to rub. You never waste your credits on these books.

    "I love these books!"

    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.

    "My Favorite So Far!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they are into this sort of book! The story is absolutely wonderful. I was happy that Neomi wanted Cade and wasn't trying to fight him, and of course it was hot as all her books are!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was pretty exciting at times, them trying to get away from the creatures of the Lore trying to capture her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Uhhh..... that's a hard one!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was actually really shocked when Neomi became a Vaylkerie, I wasn't expecting that.


    Any additional comments?

    When is Audible going to get ALL of them, I need to catch up!!!

    "Can this BadBoy make good?"

    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.

    "Best reader I've heard!"

    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

    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings depth to the characters and even makes the woman sound good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. I loved all of it that is why I can keep retreading it


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to it is so much better than just reading it

    "Robert Petkoff is the best narrator ever!"

    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!
