He vowed he'd come for her...
Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives.
She awaits his return...
When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals - unaware that he belongs to their world.
To sate a desire more powerful than death...
Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan’s torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared - even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

Okay I'm not a fan of Chase because he's an evil rat bastard but... I understand why he is the way he is. Yes he tortured and killed many in the lore but they kinda started it. I'm just saying... his whole family was tortured and killed by loreans. He is then approached (as a grieving tortured impressionable young man) manipulated and brainwashed by the real bad guy in this thing, West. Of course I can't say Chase was right for what he did but I understand it. He has been drugged his whole life and is dealing with all these questions about dreams and pain he doesn't understand not to mention being on his own and struggling with being "different" but not knowing why. His mind is completely messed up. Regin goes through hell with guy and can forgive and forget so I guess I will. This book isn't my favorite but I'm glad Mrs. Cole didn't stick to the norm and gave us something different. The story is actually a good story and gets really good the last quarter of the book after La Dorada infiltrates the prison. By the end I actually didn't mind Chase. I mean hell, Nix helped him as a young boy knowing what is to come. Who am I to question a demi-goddess. One last thing... I'd like to know more about young Thad.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Wow...this book was extra emotional for me because Regin is a total B-A and to have her get emotional was thrilling and exciting at the same time. Regin is fated to the male that has been enslaving the Lorion creatures for years and pretty much was second in command, what is girl suppose to do with that? Well Regin has it covered. I love Regin! and of course Robert Petkoff ... Masterpiece as usual, but extra kudos for having extra voice's for Declan Chase, completely sublime, your talents amaze me! No question this series rules!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Althought I love Kresley Coles writing and this book was good I just wasn't a fan of Declan as a hero. He does totally transform in the end and turns out awesome. It’s the getting there that left a bitter taste in my mouth. Regin is a much better person than I, because I don't know that I could have forgiven him the way she does. But with that said I still really liked the book, I am enthralled with the world that has been built in this series and I will be listening to everything KC writes. I really like how she manages to overlap the same story into each book, yet make it a new story by who's point of view. Usually I'm not a fan of this type of writing but KC does it without making it seem repetitive, she brings life and adventure to the story. It only gets better with Robert Petkoff reading it.
QUESTION : DOES LISTENING TO AUDIO BOOKS MAKE YOU SMARTER? If so, I'm. Freakin Genius!
I've read all of the books in the IAD series. But I'm sorry to say, this is my least favorite of them all. Which is sad , because I was really looking forward to Regin the Radiant's story.
The problem I had was with the main male character, Declan Chase. He is just not a good man. The things he does are really cruel, and he doesn't seem to feel bad for all the pain he has inflected on the immortals he held in his prison. I just couldn't get over that.
Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell
In a daring twist with the series, the hero of this story is the former #2 Bad Guy. It turns out he's Regan's one and only. Regan is one of my favourite characters, in moderation, she's good for the occasional funny quip, over the top action, or stupid "Val" trick but too much Regan is like an "ice cream" headache.
The back story lists the circumstances that drove Regan's man to the dark side and while tragic, to me, they didn't excuse his past atrocities. Typically, the men in this series, indeed this genre, are larger than life, super tough, mega-Alphas. The narration was great, I just couldn't get behind a normal, sort of anti-hero.
Sexy, dark, and sensual to the max! Great story, excellent narration, and a worthy addition to the series. Regin was never one of my favorite characters in the other IAD books, so I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this story, however, I am a diehard KC fan, so I knew it would be tolerable. Well, it was better than tolerable, I totally freaking loved it! There were moments where it was a little slow, but, overall it was typical KC. Declan was a great character, super intense and hot. He was so dark and hateful, it was awesome to see him fall so hard for Regin and her for him. The icing on the cake, was---Lothaire. Although I've long since read his story, I'll take a dose of Lothaire any day of the week. Definitely a must read/listen, and credit worthy.
Robert Petkoff has the voice for audiobooks. He really brings the story to life!
It was the moment of the escape. Regin picked up the machine gun. I won't repeat what she said but I laughed for 10 straight minutes!
I usually don't write reviews but I couldn't pass this up. Regin has ALWAYS been my favorite character. I love her bravado and wit! I was so excited to learned that her story was coming to audio. Plus to have Mr. Petkoff to narrator, I knew it was a book I had to have. Let's just say if you purchase this book, you will not be disappointed!!!
This was Regin's HEA and it is set during the same time with Lucia's book and Carrow's Book.
Regin was engaged to Aidan the Fierce before he was murdered. He kept coming back reborn again and dying when he remembered Regin and their love. Regin gets captured by Magistrate Declan Chase, the same guy who was working for the Order and she realizes Declan is Aidan's new reincarnation.
While she falls for her lover, she is also aghast at the havoc he is wrecking on all those she loves. She has the power to destroy him, by helping him to remember her and their love. But she is so tired of losing Aidan time and time again.
This book was really a big emotional rollercoster and it was a lot of pain for the main characters. I really liked Declan but not like I liked Garreth and the men before. I didn't enjoy this one as much because it lacked some of the funnier moments but it did have sweet ones too.
I am amazed at how Cole keeps simultaneous stories going on at the same time but they are all their own journeys to HEA. Bravo!
*sighing* Lothaire, that sneaky leech is up next. I am still mad at what he did to Carrow, and the lies he told young Thad. I hope he is redeemed in his book.
I love Kresley Cole's books. The characters, the fantasy, it's all there. In this book, the heroine and the unlikely hero, who is also a villain, have enough drama in their lives and they are aided and abetted by a bunch of other characters who are fascinating in themselves. It's a good read.
I love every single IMD books, I love the narrator! I don't think they would have the impact that they do with any other narrator, he is TRUELY amazing. Each one of these books leave you craving more!
Is amazing. He can really bring the book alive and does amazing accents and male/female flips. I think he struggled a little with the Irish accent (his Scottish is much better) but I'm still very impressed.
The book is an old fave, I'd decided to get on audio as well as kindle. Live the IAD series ;-) especially Regin's tale!
"enjoyed the audio more than the papper back!"
loved it. Robert Petkof gave another wonderful narration. ive read the book which was great, but this is one of the rare time that the audio was better.
"Dreams of a Dark Warrior - Amazing"
yes, Robert Petkoff's voice just transforms these characters that I love so much.
Regin obviously she's mouthy,arrogant and very violent but has a good and caring side hidden beneath all the wise cracks. She made me crack up with her wit and with her actions.
One of her quotes:
He's like six hundred years younger than you are. I refuse to be the moral compass of our cell! Most weekends I have an intoxispell bong attached to my mouth like a respirator. I love scatological humor, and I list 'pranks involving nuclear waste' and 'making demons eat things' as my hobbies.”
His voice is delicious. He does the accents well with both the female and male parts.His sense of delivery is amazing just the way he pauses and starts again in certain sentences really reflected the writing of the author well. It made me want to read his voice over talents by other authors.
A few, the vivisection scene brought a lump to my throat.
