Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole makes her audio debut with the first title in her Immortals After Dark series.

Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature.

Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress who can “make you want her even as she’s killing you.” She has devoted her life to protecting an ancient, powerful jewel and to fighting the vampires, and she now sees a way to torment one - for with Wroth’s heartbeat comes consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her.

She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen the jewel which commands her, giving him absolute power over her. While he possesses it, he can make her do anything, and he plans to in order for her to experience firsthand the agonizing, unending lust she’d purposely subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Wroth realizes he wants more from her and frees her, will she come back to him?

    "Great Story as always - Bad Narration"

    Narrators if you want to know how to narrate correctly with two voices, listen to one of Christine Feehan's audio books with two narrators. Female does ALL female voices no matter if it's in hero's point of view. Male does ALL male voices no matter if it's in heroine's point of view. Get a clue!

    "Poor Narration distracts from a good story"

    The decision to switch the male/female narrators at the end of each chapter, rather than by the characters speaking, resulted in two different voices for each character which was distracting and at times confusing. I listened to the end only because the story was so interesting. More books by this author please and use the narrator for the next installment - who did a fantastic job on both the male and female voices.

    I'm a 54 year old mail carrier. I listen to books around 6 hours a day. Listening to just about any fiction genre. Just starting to review.

    "Longest 4 hours ever."
    What disappointed you about The Warlord Wants Forever: Immortals After Dark, Book 1?

    Very little


    Has The Warlord Wants Forever: Immortals After Dark, Book 1 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It hasn't


    Have you listened to any of Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not that I know of.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I had heard of this series but haddn't started it. I expected the first book to contain world building and there really wasn't any. Characters even the leds were almost no existant. A total waste of my time and my cash. I bought the second book at the same time I doubt I'll bother listening to it.

    "Skip this one, go to the next book in the series!"

    This book is boring compared to the other stories in the series. They are longer and more detailed. The series is simply fantastic! This one is short and the story is all rushed.
    Oh, and the narrators in this book don't compare to the reader (Robert) of all the other books. He is an AMAZING narrator.

    Trust me that you don't have to read this one to know what is going on in the other books in the series. This one could totally be dropped and the world (or should I say lore) would never miss it!

    To sum up: Skip it, but not the others!

    "Other stories in series are way better."

    I'm glad I didn't start with this book. It was defiantly not as good as the other books in this series, I recommend starting with A Hunger Like No Other. I like Kaderin/Sebastian's and Maraketa/Bowen's stories the best. This book did have some questionable sex scenes that was on the verge of rape that was a turn off for me, but Myst loved it so I guess to each her own. I didn't think the narrators where that bad, but I think they should have just stuck with the male voice. I am not a fan of duel narration.

    "Not That Bad"
    Would you listen to The Warlord Wants Forever again? Why?

    Yes, I love this series!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Pretty much all of it.


    Which character – as performed by Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar – was your favorite?

    Hagen Verret


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Enemies to lovers


    Any additional comments?

    I almost didn't buy this because of the bad reviews. The narration was better than I was led to believe. I've heard worse!
    At least the character's voices weren't mindless drones.

    "freaking good"

    Being that this book was short, I think the book was dammed good. Luved the story line of feuding species and the forbiden friut concept. The sexual contant of the story was great. Again let me point out, for not being a long book.

    "meh. :/"

    i didn't mind either of the narrators, unlike so many other reviews I read. the only problem was, as I was getting used to one voice the other would take over, which really detracted from the performance. the female voice was rather blunt in her reading, but again, I can get used to that.

    i didn't really care for the story or the writing style. i mean, I found the sex scenes very detailed, but the actual story was shallow. he wants her, she tries to resit but can't.... there wasn't much to it.

    and the male character was terrible. he's this hard, battle worn, veteran of war who doesn't lose control, but then she strolls into his life and boom.... he's a sappy, love sick, asshole... I don't buy it......

    and she's a morbid, gore loving, seductress. from the moment she is introduced she acts like a floozy. yeah, maybe she is playing a role, but come on. and her back story is just as bad. everyone wants her, she's the unattainable jewel that every man wants.

    again, I found this story shallow. and I barely made it through. i won't be buying anymore in the series!!

    "Unique!"

    This book was a surprise. Was not what I was expecting at all. Very unique and intimate in the Valkyrie's and the vampire lore. Mist and Roth ate a very odd couple, indeed.
