#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?

It was written in a paranormal setting. I love paranormal books.
It's a love story first, yet has a wonderful story to tell.
Wroth and Myst.
Need different Narrator
I wish Please do a redo and have Robert Pelkoff
Wonderful Series, one of my favorites.
These stories are great and love that the women are strong.
He never gives up!
Where are the rest of the stories? Hope they release them soon!!
I love Audible!!!
So glad i gave series a chance new favorite!!!!! Cant wait for remaining books to release from Adudible!!!!
It's a perfectly good book for that genre - just not the genre for me.
They were great narrators and I loved the dual narrating
I am amazed this series receives such positive reviews. There is very little plot or character development and the story is just a way to connect the sex scenes. Boring!
Whoever decided that the male & female narrators should take turns doing chapters (rather than reading the male & female parts) should be fired!!!! Geez, Although I loved the male narrator (who also did the Myst character well) the female narrator did an awful job at narration. I wanted to set my iPod on SLOW so that I could catch all she was saying she talked so fast. And she definitely did not have the voice to pull off the role of Nickoli. After I listened to the book the first time... I just played it again - skipping the chapters she read. Much more enjoyable.
I've read all the books in Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, and they are my absolute favorite paranomral romance books. I'm also a huge fan of audio books, and can't wait until the entire series is available. The narrators of this book (actually a novella prequel to the series) could have been better, but weren't horrible. It was definitely worth purchasing and listening to. The next two books in the series are full-length and have a great narrator, so be sure to check them out.
Loved this one, this author makes me laugh, fell in love with the hero, he wasn't off at all, the narraitors were right on having both the female and the male voices. This author really knows how to tell a story and hold your attention with the sexy steamy scenes being perfect no stupid. I want more!
This is a reread in audiobook format since it was on sale. It was very interesting having both a male and a female reader. Also since this series tend to be a LOT on the erotic side, I think I might prefer to actually read it. I usually listen to it outloud when I can and it could be awkard when somebody who understands English walks by... LOL
This immortal series has a long running arch that hasn't been quite clear yet or I can't remember them well. I really do need to sit down and read the whole thing and make a timeline!
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
