    "I love these books"

    I absolutely love the world and characters that Mrs. Cole gives us and the way that Robert Petkoff brings them to life. Please please please never let anyone else narrate these books or they'll ruin them. Petkoff is the perfect narrator for this series.

    Never in this series have we been introduced to such a character as Malkom Slain. Abused tortured and tourmented he's definitely the darkest character IMO of the series so far. Listening to this book you wonder how the two will fall for each other especially with the language barrier for a lot of the story. Then with "betrayals" and misunderstandings it was good to finally see a light at the end of the tunnel at the cabin on the island.
    I'm not a fan of the pravis immortals being the only ones to get their powers back but I do understand it was important in developing a good story.

    Not my favorite book in the series but my favorite series* (tied with Frost's Kat and Bones' Night Huntress series) and this was a good addition. I can't wait to hear Phoenix's book but I'm sure that will be the excession book. I always wonder if she will get her happy ever after after guiding so many to theirs.

    As a series fan I liked the story bit Bowen and Mariketta's book is still my favorite. As a guy I loved the action and the sex and love scenes (yes the two are different) doesn't hurt either. Good addition to a great series. Enjoy!

    "Kresley Cole Does It Again!"

    Kresley Cole has written a 5 star book, again! Robert Petkoff is the voice of Demon from the Dark! Oh who am I kidding, Robert Petkoff is the best! His Scottish Accent, well, I could listen to him reading the newspaper or a cereal box. That's how good Mr. Petkoff is! Audible I want more of Kresley Cole's Demons and Robert Petkoff's voice. :)

    Story
    "New To Audible, not a new release (Spoilers)"
    Would you listen to Demon from the Dark again? Why?

    Yes, Because the story keeps my attention and the narrator does a great job creating the characters they way they were written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Since I love the whole series it's hard to pick just one character since most of them have some roll or another to play in each book. If I had to choose just one from this story it would have to be Carro over Slain because the character although having her own sad issues didn't succumb to a victim mentality.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The one where Slain finally gets a clue and goes to the cabin to see Carro and Ruby are packing up to leave. The emotion Slain goes through when he thinks they're leaving him serves him right even if he's wrong.


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

    Ruby getting separated from Carro in the cave, and Carro getting Slain to help as well as his shock and astonishment of Carro's devotion to the girl.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book so long ago that when it was billed as a new release I got excited and downloaded it. Normally I hate it when that happens but I loved the story enough that hearing it this time was like the first time all over. There's a difference in the terms New Release and New to Audible. If there's a way to tell the difference with out having to look in my nook or audible libraries first I'd love to know it.

    Great author, great book, great narrator! KC has created such an amazing world in IAD. Each character is unique and intriguing. My favorite part are the strong females and the alpha males of course. There couldn't be a more amazingly perfect narrator for this series. I love his cadence and the accents. One of my favorites!!

    "Beauty & the Beast- IAD Style"

    Thank you Robert Petkoff for nailing the narration and keeping me listening even when I have other things to do. This series has become a Top 5 series for me. WOW. I would have never believed it as i could barely finish the first couple of books in this series.

    In this series, we meet demon Malkom Slaine who has been dealt a pretty crappy hand by life. He doesn't know his father and his mother was whore who sold to to be a blood whore to vampires when he was a little boy. He has been used and abused all his life until he met his best friend Kallen, the King. Kallen gave Malkom a sense of belonging and a mission until they were betrayed and taken by vampires. Malkolm swore revenge on all those who held him captive and those betrayed him.

    Carrow Graie, a witch, was sent to retrieve Malkolm by the human Order that kidnapped her, in exchange for his adoptee Ruby. Carrow has also had a crappy family life as she never really mattered to her parents. they treated her like she was invisible so now she has been living a life starved for love. When these two came in contact, Malkolm's heart started beating--she was his mate. Carrow knew Malkolm would help her, but could she betray him and return him into captivity? Would Malkolm forgive her betrayal?

    this was like a beauty and the beast story because Malkolm started off as a beast...a sweet, but angry and protective beast. I find the stories where Kresley Cole gives us lykae and demons are just the best. They are sweet, funny, sad, high in action and just weaved together well.

    Malkolm has been added to my list of favorite Heroes and has Carrow. They made a really sweet pair. I can't wait to read the next one in this series

    "PHEWEE FLAWLESS..... SIMPLY FLAWLESS"

    I want to thank Ms Cole for her gifted imagination, her many hours of work, her thought filled days, maybe sleepless nights conjuring up this exciting, riveting and emotional adventure and say that every lost hour, every minute and every second was so worth it as you've brought yet another spellbinding addition to the Immortals After Dark series. I don't mind my bloodshot eyes or my fatigue because you gave me a listen that I just couldn't, and wouldn't, break from until my bedroom grew light and the birds began to welcome a new day.

    You gave me a proud but lonely, tortured and tormented Demon that I sympathised with, cherished and hoped he got his much deserved HEA, a Witch that first betrayed him but was loyal and loving in the end and a suspense filled plot that was filled with action, heartache, passion, drama, witty dialogue, snappy one-liners and humor, sizzling sexual chemistry, hot sex and paranormal beings that were gruesome, bloodthirsty, gifted, weird and wonderful. Then you teamed all that with the much loved characters from previous books and added new ones that thrilled, chilled and totally entertained me.

    The final cherry on top was to have it read by the Maestro himself as Robert Petkoff's many accents enriched an already bulging story and breathed life and soul into it's many characters.

    Worth a credit? It would be a definite thumbs up YES but this was under $10 so I bought it, saving my credit for another time.

    "I LOVE Demon's - especially in the Dark :)"
    Any additional comments?

    The Immortals After Dark series holds a place on the upper echelon of my all time favorite paranormal romance books. I always look forward to the entertaining adventures of whichever couple the author has created each time. In the tenth title of this timeless series, the witch Carrow has been captured and held prisoner on an island run by the Order. Torques are placed on all of the Immortal prisoners to restrain their powers so they can be experimented on by barbaric humans seeking answers to their questions about their powers. The humans have deemed any Immortal "miscreants" and their ultimate mission is to destroy them all.

    On the outside Carrow is a party girl, one who enjoys life, but inside is where she keeps the pain of a loveless childhood. When another witch is murdered, her daughter, Ruby, is left an orphan. Carrow knows she must step up and raise the child as her own. Except the Order has now made Ruby a prisoner and has offered Carrow a deal to save both their lives. This deal entails traveling to the hellish plane, Oblivion, to lure back a uniquely powerful demon the Order wants. The notorious demon Malkom has been alone for centuries but when he first catches the scent of a female in his world, he knows she is special and sent for him. Carrow is on a mission, to lure back a nightmarish demon. She never figured on falling in love.

    I liked the tough talking, partying Carrow from other books and I was glad she was receiving her own story. But after completing the novel I didn't feel for her the way I wanted to. I thought there was too much time spent on the world-building of the Island and the humans who run the facility. Even though I did find out a lot about both Malkom and Carrow's past, the sections when they were together didn't fully convince me why they belonged together besides the usual finding-your-mate reason. I wanted to be convinced these two should be a wonderful couple and I wanted to see more of Carrow in action as a witch. I know the torque prevented her from using her powers while held captive on the island but for those six days in Oblivion it was deactivated. The battle scenes which took place there were light on the actual battle scenes. The romance was aplenty but I didn't get a true sense behind their coupling. I thought the most convincing and tender scenes were between Carrow and Ruby. The spark wasn't there for me this time around (like it was when I read about Conrad and Neomi in Dark Needs at Night's Edge.

    I know others have really enjoyed this book and to a certain degree, I did. I began the story with high expectations and ended it satisfied and entertained, but not loving it. Robert Petkoff delivers an out-standing narration as always :)

    "Excellent! I Love the Lore!"

    If you listened to the rest of this series you will love this book just as much as the others. I loved Malkom and Carrow. I can't wait for the next book (book 9) to come out on audible. I listened to them all except the 2 that weren't available until now, Now i am only waiting on Regin the Radiant's book. Love the Lore and all the characters created in this fantastic series.

    Robert Petkoff is the absolute best male narrator ever! If he would narrate every book that a male narrator would narrate I would be soo happy. LOL

    "Poignant Passion"
    What made the experience of listening to Demon from the Dark the most enjoyable?

    It made me feel that love can arrive at any time and in the most unexpected ways


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Malkom Slaine...he was such a tortured soul, that it was a joy to watch him open up his heart to love.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    He is the master of voices - I love his deep vampire ones and he does an amazingly believable job with females.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    They were brought together by deception, but found the healing power of love


    Any additional comments?

    Pretty much listened to this in one go - did not leave my house all weekend.

    "For Kresley Cole fans - A Winner!"
    Would you listen to Demon from the Dark again? Why?

    I would certainly listen to Demon from the Dark again. These books are an easy listen, the storeys are not rocket sience they are, boy meets girl with some unusual and interestig twists. Although the plot of each book is basically the same, they hold your interest because of the huge variety of characters and KC's skill in making them strong, exciting, vulnerable, interesting characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Malkom was my favourite character. He is a tortured sole, abused as a boy and betrayed as an adult, you can't help but want to make it all better for him. Of course the fact that he's described throughout the book as an Adonis certainly helps! (Perhaps I should mention, these are not M&B romances, some of the love scenes are quite graphically described).


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to a number of Robert Petkoff's performances and I think he has the perfect voice for these books. He has a smooth manly voice for the male characters but is able to lighten it, without it sounding silly, for the female characters. A good choice!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Had I the time I would have listened to it in one sitting, it's definitely a page turner.


    Any additional comments?

    It may seem an obvious statement but if you haven't read the Immortals After Dark series, I would start with the first book, as some of the storey lines refer back to previous books. The prequel to book one, is a novella, The Warlord Wants Forever, after reading that, I was hooked!

    "A new favourite"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would to friends who like this gendre for sure. It is dark, sexy and well written


    What other book might you compare Demon from the Dark to, and why?

    I do like the whole series, but somehow the witches are amongst the favourite characters. So, if you liked Cole's Wicket deeds on Winter's Night, you will love this one.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    All Cole's books he has done. He is the perfect narrator. His female characters are not annoying (as sometimes is the case with male narrators). I do admit to a bit of crush on his voice as many others do I noticed :-D


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hottest action on this plain plane - of course!


    Any additional comments?

    This is another favourite from the series for me. While I like them all so far, I have been waiting for this one for a while. I got it as book when it came out straight away, but with RP narrating I couldn't but get it as audio as well. There is not a boring moment in the book. More than worth the credit.
