The second installment in Kresley Cole’s best-selling steamy Immortals After Dark series is now available on audio for the first time!
Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire - a nightmare in his mind - against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live - until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.
When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow - accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings - particularly lust - emerge multiplied. For the first time, she’s unable to complete a kill.
The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity - as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world - to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she’s falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?

Say something about yourself!
The idea of this book was intriguing, but it kind of got lost in the shuffle. The first book in the series was kind of like star crossed lovers...this book was more like two people who shouldn't be together, but they have to so I guess we will get it over with.
There wasn't much in the way of falling in love...they were kind of hit with a mystical whammy and poof they were attracted to each other, but it felt kind of forced.
Overall still an okay book, I think it was like $7 for 8 hours of distraction so it was totally worth it, but nothing to get obsessed about.
The Immortals After Dark series has put my life at a stand still! This series has wonderful, witty, strong, intelligent characters and stories. I found myself laughing out loud and yearning for what happens next much more than other series I have read/listened to. The narrator, Robert Petkoff, was AMAZING. I am impressed with his ability to vary his voice/accent for the various characters. If you want to lose yourself for a couple of days, (because, trust me, you won't be able to break away) this is absolutely the series for you.
Yes. The stroy is great as is but Robert Petkhoff is a genius at ready this series. He totally captures each character.
The battle between the 2 characters. They are constantly fighting fate.
Sebastian. He captures the accents and emotions perfectly as he does with each of these audiobook stories that he's previously read. I will listen to any audiobook that he reads. Please stick to using him for reading the remainder of this series.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
When I first starting listening to this book it took me a week to make it past the first few chapters. I was so over the female angst. Should she or shouldn't she. Make a decision and get it over with. About mid way through the book, it started to become interesting. I was pleased with the characters growth throughout the book but not to the point I would want to listen to the book again.

Wont regret purchase
All of Cole's Immortals After Dark books.
The beginning... love how it starts
Love sci-fi books, romace books. I love to get lost into a good book.
The sex was pretty good.
Where they both finally opened up.
first time, and I like.
love the book
YES!! AND I DO CONSTANTLY!!!
SHADOW'S CLAIM, IT HAS THE SAME PRIZE TO BE WON, BATTLE FOR THE LOVE SCENARIO.
YES!!! HE IS THE BEST NARRATOR AND SHOULD READ ME TO SLEEP EVERY NIGHT!!
WHEN SEBASTION CAME TO VAL HALL FOR KITTY KAD AND WHEN SHE TURNS TO LOOK AT HIM HE PLACES HIS HAND ON HIS HEART. UMMMMM I MELT!!!
SEBASTION IS JUST YUMMY!!!
Absolutely. I think this series is fantastic and the second book is even better than the first.
Sebastian and Kaderin of course but I also think Keaden is hysterical.
Yes, the first book in this immortal series. He is great. The accents are perfect and make you want to listen for hours. His accented growls of the male characters are toe curling fun. The females are a bit breathy at times, more in the first book but he makes up for it in the second. The main females voice is perfect this time around.
Yes, I laughed out loud and a few different parts defintely made me cry. This story is so passionate and agonizing, it is hard to stop and take a break.
As I said, I enjoyed the first book of this series but I enjoyed the second one so much more. I will reread this many times. Sebastian and Kaderins story is awesome. They both have histories that make you root for them and curse them at times. They are passionate and fierce. There is angst and agony throughout but it is not so dramatic that it overwhelmes. This book also introduces many other lore species through the competition. I love the glimpes you get, both funny and intriguing. Lastly, I love the Amazing Race like scavenger hunt in this story. It brings the characters to the most interesting places, puts them against complex competitors and adds so many levels of intensity to this (already) high octane story. It is fast paced, melt in your seat, can't wait to see what happens next fun. Can't wait to continue on with the series. Cole is quickly becoming a new fav of mine.
Yes, I would. If you like paranormal romance this book is first rate.
The sexual tension between Sabastian and his "bride".
When Kad admits that she loves Sabastian.
Yes, sadly time did not allow for that.
This is a wonderful second installment in the Imortals after Dark series. Well written with a great ending it read sure from beginning to end. Robert Petkoff is a wonderful narrator. He could read the yellow pages and I would listen. Worth the price of admission for sure.
