Cadeon Woede has been trying to make up for a careless act 900 years ago that caused his elder brother’s kingdom to fall into their enemies hands. The same enemies that murdered his entire foster family and Cadeon, a Rage Demon is more than ready to atone for his sins. All he has to do is deliver the Vessel (a chosen female of Lore who will beget a child who will become a warrior of ultimate good or evil) to hand over to a wicked sorcerer. In exchange, Cadeon will receive a special weapon capable of defeating his enemy in order to restore the kingdom to his brother’s hands. Unfortunately, for Cadeon the Vessel just happens to be Holly Ashwin a beautiful, brilliant young woman he has had his eye on for months thinking she just might be his life mate. And now that he’s kidnapped her, he KNOWS she is his mate – so does he keep her or turn her over to the evil sorcerer?
I have been following Ms. Cole’s Immortals After Dark series and each and every book just gets better and better! What I love is any kind of paranormal being you can think of generally show up in Cole’s Lore world and it is simply fascinating. Although, I have to say, I am very partial to the Valkyries - they are a hoot and unbelievable warriors with a heck of a sense of humor (even if they’re not aware of it).
Cadeon had been attracted to Holly, for a while and thought she was human. Discovering that she was in truth the ‘vessel’ and a valkyrie as well was a definite shock. However, Ms. Cole focused her attention on the adventure and Cadeon doing everything in his power to both keep Holly alive and not give in to temptation. The descriptions of demons, specifically ‘rage demons’ was amazing. And the most wonderful aspect of this audio was the impressive narration by Robert Petkoff who did both male and female voice-overs amazingly well – a terrific performance.
Bottom line: This was, as found in every Immortals After Dark book was sensual, quirky, and complete with bad-ass heroines who generally provide the humor that make these books so deliciously wonderful! Kresley - you go girl!
I love Cadeon's character and accent.
When Cade first sees Holly, he is struck dumb. So sweet!
I have no complaints. He is magnificent!!
I tried...I really did. Good listen!
I'm contemplating naming a kid Cadeon...lol
I absolutely love to read/listen to my books. If the book is hot, I'll read it over and over again. My wish is to meet my favorite authors.
I cant stop... between kresley gina and lainey I m gonna lose my mind... literally
The Story was full of adventure and enthralling. I absolutely loved these two characters. Kresly Cole never fails to hold you captive with her writing skills and I never tire of Robert Petkoffs narration! I love his voice and how he brings all the characters to life. I laughed hysterically numerous times. An excellent read!
I'm a graduate student from Flint, MI. My day job affords me hours to enjoy audio books while I work. Self-professed Narrator Snob!
I've enjoyed every one of the Immortals After Dark series but this has been the best by far! The story was great, and as someone who also as OCD it was nice to see a love story with a character who also has it (although her illness was simplified for the book, I think)
Every bit as good as the others in the series! I loved both main characters. The narrator is amazing as usual.
