#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?

march right into my imagination can't wait to read more she know how to keep readers glued to the pages and smiling the whole time.
I felt the performers did a fine job. If anything the director could have tweeted a few scenes a bit switching too quickly between male and female voices and Russian accents not quite sounding right in the switch.
Way too short
The other Immortals After Dark books because after listening to this book I have been purchasing all the the rest of the series.
I didn't really care for the voices in these book. They were okay but compared to the rest of the series I wouldn't rather have the other narrator.
Female narrator was poor. Male narrator did a good job. Good background info for book one of the series. Don't need this story to enjoy book one. Glad I didn't listen to this one first.
This being the second time listening to this series. Well, yes, I would listen to this a second time. LOL
Love the supernatural, humor, alpha males, strong women who can handle the alpha males, and all of the valkyrie.
The narrators bring this to life. There's nothing like listening to a good book and good narrators at work. Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar have brought this story to life for sure.
What can you say about one of the best Vampire, Lykae, etc. series out there. I want more!
Tell us about yourself!
I have listened to almost every single book by Kresley Cole and I have to say how disappointing this narration was. I'm not sure why Robert Petkoff didn't narrate this book but it's a shame because his narration is amazing.
NO! The male narrator was not too bad but the female narrator was terrible. She didn't even really try to change her voice when speaking all the different female voices. It seemed rather lazy on her behalf.
Boredom. I am sure I would have enjoyed the book more if the female narrator wasn't a part of it. I would have really enjoyed it if Robert Petkoff narrated it.
The whole reason why I buy audio books is for the performance. I just wasnt feeling these narrators. I don't mean to be rude, I truly do not, but I just wish they would have stuck with Robert Petkoff. His characters come to life.
Believer in what you can't see
I would recommend the book over the audiobook. This is the first audiobook done so the performance is a little off.
"No rest for the Wicked'"very entertaining and adventurous. Think Amazing Race with supernatural beings.
Juanita Parker would work in this series. She has a great range; you forget that there is only one person doing the narration.
Somewhat, just because it brings the characters to life.
I love the first half of this series, it is fun, quirky and passionate. Definitely a good series.
Very high as I adore all of Kresley Coles books but really would have preffered if Rpobert Petkoff had narrated this one as well
Hmmmm to many good bits to chose!
All of Kresleys books make you laugh, moan and sometimes cry.
Kresleys books hold the right amount of passion, humour and action for my liking. I love the fantasy world she has created in these books and the way they tye together so well. Brilliant books and I can't wait for more!
This series is the best this far. The narrator I can't get enough of. I want every book in this series available on audible. I didn't get this one until I could find book 7, mainly because of the length of it, but I wasn't disappointed.
