Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole continues her electrifying Immortals After Dark series with this thrilling tale, revealing secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals....

All fear the enemy of old.

Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.

A deadly force dwells within her.

Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder - or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.

Centuries of cold indifference shattered.

Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past - or risk everything for a future with her?

    "Amazing Book"

    This book was amazing! One of the best books I ever heard/read. The narrator is the best male narrator on Audible (and I've listened to a lot of books). One thing though... why would you tempt us with such awesome stories by only publishing books 1 and 12 on audible (where are books 2-11).

    "Great story with a FANTASTIC narrator!"

    This is not Longfellow- but it's entertaining and anyone who enjoys the genre will get what they are seeking in Kresley Cole's work. For the uninitiated- this series includes graphic sex and some violence but not to excess. The sex and violence are simply elements of the story arch and are by no means the focus. There is a good degree of character development without overburdening the reader with useless detail. The humor is non formulaic and well suited to compliment each character making each personality distinct from one another. Of particular note is the fact that the female protag is not a simpering air head incapable of making rational decisions. In fact, to date all the female characters I have encountered in this series have considerable backbone to compliment their femininity rather than stand in contrast to it.

    Robert Petkoff's narration is fantastic. He brings all the characters out individually and negotiates accents with a great deal of aplomb- especially Lothaire's. He reads females without sounding ridiculous and makes clear distinctions between characters and personalities in a way that sounds and feels effortless to the listener. He is now one of my favorite narrators and I will actively seek more work recorded by him.

    Overall it was well written, well read and well produced.

    "COULDN'T STOP LISTENING!!!!"

    Well I've just finished this fantastic book and I feel it was well worth losing a weekend over. It had everything - hot handsome sexy vampire, good story, great narrator, steamy love scenes and of course romance - what more can you ask for.

    Never stop writing Kresley and let's have more books by her on Audible please please please 'cause there's a chunck of books missing in the series.

    "More Kresley Cole Please!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have read her earlier books, but these are out of the world. For someone who suffers from migraines, Audible is a lifesaver.

    "Ended too soon..."

    Wow, such a good story, though some of the "naughty" talk was a bit eye-roll worthy. Still, I would have paid full price for this one.

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

    He is fantastic!! Will listen to anything he reads.


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

    Listened to it from start to finish in one sitting, will be listening to it again!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish all IAD books were on audible, I would buy them all

    "PERFECTION!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lothaire the most enjoyable?

    This book was amazing from the get go, and does not lose steam until the very last page. But what made this book perfect was the narration. Petkoff brings the story to life! This is the most listened to book out of all my audiobooks. I never get tired of listening to it...ever!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lothaire?

    The Prologue of the book and all the scenes between Lothaire and Ellie, ofcourse.


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

    Definitely Lothaire!


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

    That whole scene between Lothaire and Nix. Amazing!!

    Lothaire: "Just tell me...tell me what I should have done differently to make her love me?!?"
    Nix: "oh, where to begin....."
    Lothaire: "**** OFF!"

    Haha...


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed all the IAD books, but this one has to be the best out of all of them, but I have to say Dreams of a Dark Warrior is a really close second. And because of Robert Petkoff, I can't wait for all of them to come out on audio! Please hurry!

    "My most indulged guilty pleasure!"
    What did you love best about Lothaire?

    Robert Petkoffs narration of the characters is brilliant. His Lothaire was PERFECT for the character portrayed. I like how the author mixes in lots of steamy scenes and Lothaire was chalk full of them! Go Russian Vampire!!


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

    I now look for other titles that he has narrated. He is BRILLIANT!!


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

    I always laugh out laud when listening to a KC book. She has a way of making even the trials and tribulations of the supernatural funny, touching and sincere. Almost like real life??


    Any additional comments?

    Because of the pairing with Robert Petkoff i have become totally addicted to Kresley Cole as an author. Normally i don't skip ahead in a series but i couldn't stop myself from buying Lothaire even though it was billed as the last one and so far Audible has only released the first three in the series. (PLEASE do more ASAP!!)

    All i can say is BRAVO!! for a fictional romance type of novel it was brilliant! FUN! SEXY!

    Mr Petkoff could read the phone book and i would be enthralled!! His delivery and use of different accents are PERFECT for each character. His Scotts/Lachay interpretation are now the men of my dreams! His Accent for Lothaire was spot on. I finished this one in only 2 days but the entire time i kept blurting out, "VWOMPIRE!!"

    If you want a really good time just buy one of Kresley Coles books and enter a totally different world full of adventure and sex and modern pop culture.

    i can't wait for the next installment and am already re-listening to the 3 i own.

    "worth the listen"

    Have read all the other books in this series, and still interested in the ongoing story. Wasn't disappointed in this book, which was very refreshing, since I have been let down by so many other series novels lately. This book is based around Lothaire, and acquiring his Bride, but really gives a lot of background explaining what makes him tick. Nix plays a role in this book, as she has the others, which gives us more information on the assention.
    I just love the Valkeryie anyway. The narration could have been better, Lothaire sounded very old, compared to Elizabeth, but I got used to it. All and all, was still an interesting ongoing story in the series, so looking forward to the next.

    "INTENSE!"

    I couldn't wait for this book to come out. This is one of those books that you would stay up throughout the night to listen, although you have to go to work the next day. The Romance was intense!. 5+ stars.

    "Lothaire: Immortals after Dark"

    The book is very cleaverly writen with lots of twists and keeps you entertained all the way to the end. Robert Petkoff narrates the book to the N degree, he adds so much to the characters with his voice and style. I just can not wait to have a nother book narrated by him. A realy good combination of writting and reading.

    "learn tto trust your inner voice"

    i love all the Kresley Cole books so far, I enjoy learning more about the new characters and the lore having been brought up with the paranormal being Wiccan by belief I'm more open than some although some would say gullible or crazy. throughout these stories they have one thing in common, learning to trust your gut instinct no matter how unlikely. Never judge a book by its cover. I know from my own experience that when ever I have gone against my gut instinct I have come a cropper ( something bad has happened ) The one thing I know for sure is that if these kind of being ever became known to humans for want of a better description they would fear them so want to destroy them. What they don't understand they can't control, what they can't control is a threat. I wish I had the courage to write a book however my knowledge of full stops paragraphs and other essential literacy skills, leave a lot to be desired. This would also apply to travellers from other worlds and people with skills that would come under the label of paranormal no might whether they were good or dark it would not matter Military would want to use them religious people destroy them, Head doctors lock them away as insane as I said what they can't understand. So no different than the burning times of the medieval period in time. I like how Kresley builds the characters you feel you know them and can imagine what they look like how they would react to different situations even understand their fears this is a skill in itself.

    Where does Lothaire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's as good as all the rest of Kresley Cole's books!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Brilliant!! A great mixture of storyline and lust!


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

    He is brilliant!! I can't believe it's just one person reading the book, all the different accents he's amazing!

    "Oh, Lothaire!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Of course I recommend this Audiobook. We waited an age for LOTHAIRE and I had to buy the Hardback because I couldn't wait for the paperback but now I have this and I am so pleased that now I have the set!
    Robert Petkoff is a delightful narrator and these books would not be the same without him; his characterization of each person is second to none and the lovely Russian accent is spine tingling. He can do any accent that may be called for and we believe it gladly.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As I enjoyed all the other books leading to this one I was well disposed to love this one, too.
    It was 'The Enemy of Old', so who cannot love him?


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    Robert Petkoff is just brilliant! I am very wary of American accents and I think the women who narrate many of these Paranormal favourites of mine actually spoil the books; they require a very talented male voice like the above narrator.

    "Kresley Cole's standard seduction for Vampires"

    If you have read, listened to, Kresley Cole you will know that these books are enormous fun filled with her own lavishly dirty cliches.



    In this book Lothaire is the protagonist, after glimpses of his 'Mad' behaviour in previous books it was exciting to delve more into his dark 'evil' world; but don't despair we then return to the usual antics, mis-communication and the sexual deviance's that will either make you laugh out loud or curl your toes.



    Overall I really enjoyed listening to this audio book, the narrator is great and has stuck through out the series so he understands the different characters that pop in and out of the books (watch out for nix cameo - she's as crazy as usual) but this is not one of my favourites from the series.
