Wow - couldn't stop listening to this fantastic continuation to a great paranormal romance series.
Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Ghosts and many many more creatures inhabit the world that K.C has created and that R.P. narrates with his magic voices that bring each character to life. It's a tense roller coaster ride for your emotions as the plot throws one twist after another.
Worth a credit? Oh YES and then some - keep em coming Ms. Cole.
Kresley Cole's books are great, and this one is no exception, but the combination of her writing and Robert Petkoff's amazing narration takes it to a completely new level. His ability to do accents and to differentiate characters is just about the best I've ever heard. He manages to make lines that would sound cheesy coming from another reader, sound perfect and sexy. I really wish Petkoff could narrate every romance book. I don't always love his female voices but I thought his version of Neomi was spot on.
The romance in this story is a slow build for sure, but I loved it. I enjoyed both of the lead characters and thought this twist on a doomed but beautiful ghost haunting the house she died in fresh and interesting.
I hope we get more of the Immortals After Dark stories in Audible quickly. And more publishers need to give work to Robert Petkoff!
As long as Kresley keeps writing them, and Robert keeps reading them, I'll keep buying them!!! Love Love Love!!!
I had read the print version of this book and decided to get the audio version as well because I like the IAD series. Kesley Cole is one of my favourite writers she delivers a good story with strong characters and a few laughs along the way.T
Story continues the IAD series so you should read the books in order, you wont be sorry One of the best paranormal books out there
The audio version of this book and the other IAD audio books performed by Robert Petkoff are the best audio books out there, I bought the other titles as well because I liked Robert Petkoffs performance of the books. Great choice of narrator he makes the story come to life
Sexy Vampires are Back
If you like vampires good laughs get this series
Just released my very first novel, AdventuresinPayne. Working on finding a narrator so it can be an audio book. I love fantasy/paranormal/romance, anything that is different and set in an altered reality. Give me interesting please, normal human life is too mundane. Bring on the fantasy world!
I don't know, i rarely have time to sit and read. I can say that without Robert Petkoff's naration i do not think i would enjoy these books as much as i do.
He is the best narrator ever!! I adore all of his performances and i always look for books he has narrated. His ability to do different accents is amazing. He is also quick with the dialoge scenes and can switch up the accents so that i am always certain of who in the story is talking. I can't say enough about his brilliant performance narration! He is awesome!!!
I really enjoy all the Kresley Cole books. They are kind of my guilty pleasure and the second that Audible gets another release i buy it and listen to it straight through, usually only takes me a couple days tops. I rarely do that with the other titles i get. So i guess that means i like her and this narrator a lot. The story usually moves along nicely and there is always at least one or two really good sex scenes. Plus the world of the Lore is fun and interesting and different! GREAT Author with a fabulous immagination! THANKS! :]
I love that Conrad, who is a supposed evil vampire killer falls in love with the heroine. He is so sweet and loving to her. I like that Neomi loved her life and made no apologies about the way she lived..
I liked Conrad and Neomi equally. I felt that the depth of the characters was fleshed out so well.
If I had to pick one it would be Conrad, but Robert Petkoff does them all so well. His accents and expressions are spot on. He just seems to really get the story and characters.
Yes! I didn't want it to end. I want to go re-listen to the series (so far) again!
Robert Petkoff + Kresley Cole = Wonderful
Of course I love the romance integrated with paranormal theme.
He can make you completely forget your listening to someone reading to you and just enjoy the story,
Avid Reader when not teaching, being a Mommy, or gamer. Loves just about anything!
Yes, just because I love the interaction of the Valkyries.
I prefer the Growly Werewolves to the Vampires, but this one is a good entry in the series.
Any scene with the Valkyries.
Please please please produced these faster with Mr. Petkoff as the narrator!
Yes the books are hot with a good plot. They have just enough sex, not overwhelming, or so long that after a while you skip through them because it's always the same sex scene over and over. The Narrator is yummy, the books about werewolf's with Scottish brogue are mind blowing.
All are great, I can't single one out.
His voice and emotion are unbeatable!!!!
Wanted to but had to work so it took 3 days. I want the rest of the series, I hate waiting for books when they are so good.
So far all the book in this series are great,the narrator is hot and I want more. I've listened to many books in this genre and a lot of the time the author gets to caught up in the sex scenes and not enough in the story. These books have the right amount of both with a good plot. I would love to hear more of the Scottish brogue in future books. All in all love them!!!
I would recommend this my friends. Ms. Cole does a great job of world building so that you are easily immersed. Robert Petkoff is also amazing.
I loved Conrad. He's a bad guy who is impossible to write off as just being evil.
I loved the scene where Conrad gathered the newspapers for Noemi.
