I can see myself listening to it again, and again.

I’ve been on the hunt for more Lykae ever since Lachlain MacRieve, although I must admit that Kresley Cole’s vampires, demons, Valkyrie and witches have tested my loyalties a few times. This latest installment sure did push me to my limits, and Malkom was primarily to blame for that. His wounds were so fresh that I could smell the blood, and all I wanted to do was to play nurse, and kiss all of his ouchies. Plus, he’s a Vemon, and who doesn’t love two hunky supes for the price of one!? #AmIRight.

Every so often a paranormal couple will strike a chord with me, and Malkom & Carrow did just that. Both of them wore their emotions on their sleeves, and that was further amplified by this author’s stand-out writing style. The lead couple’s thoughts, and feelings radiated from the pages of this book, and I loved how they got from A to HEA, and everything in the middle. The chemistry between these two, even with a language barrier, was unbelievable.

The story meshed well with the main arc, and it’s been a while since Cole worked in a new type of paranormal, so that was gravy. There were some laugh-out-loud moments which was unexpected given that a good sized chunk of this novel takes place in Hell, and given the long list of crap that Malkom’s suffered through. Carrow fully discovered her power thanks to Slaine, and he found happiness, so that was some nice karma.

Robert Petkoff didn’t really need to do much to make this audiobook a 5-star listen; however his tantalizing accents, ability to let loose for any scene regardless of its nature, and just his knack for all things IMMORTALS AFTER DARK in general. Malkom’s vulnerability and Carrow’s devotion to Ruby came through loud and clear, and speaking of the seven year old witch, Petkoff can even narrate kids impeccably.

DEMON FROM THE DARK is definitely a book that I can see myself listening to again, and again.

PHEWEE FLAWLESS..... SIMPLY FLAWLESS

I want to thank Ms Cole for her gifted imagination, her many hours of work, her thought filled days, maybe sleepless nights conjuring up this exciting, riveting and emotional adventure and say that every lost hour, every minute and every second was so worth it as you've brought yet another spellbinding addition to the Immortals After Dark series. I don't mind my bloodshot eyes or my fatigue because you gave me a listen that I just couldn't, and wouldn't, break from until my bedroom grew light and the birds began to welcome a new day.

You gave me a proud but lonely, tortured and tormented Demon that I sympathised with, cherished and hoped he got his much deserved HEA, a Witch that first betrayed him but was loyal and loving in the end and a suspense filled plot that was filled with action, heartache, passion, drama, witty dialogue, snappy one-liners and humor, sizzling sexual chemistry, hot sex and paranormal beings that were gruesome, bloodthirsty, gifted, weird and wonderful. Then you teamed all that with the much loved characters from previous books and added new ones that thrilled, chilled and totally entertained me.

The final cherry on top was to have it read by the Maestro himself as Robert Petkoff's many accents enriched an already bulging story and breathed life and soul into it's many characters.

Worth a credit? It would be a definite thumbs up YES but this was under $10 so I bought it, saving my credit for another time.

Kresley Cole Does It Again!

Kresley Cole has written a 5 star book, again! Robert Petkoff is the voice of Demon from the Dark! Oh who am I kidding, Robert Petkoff is the best! His Scottish Accent, well, I could listen to him reading the newspaper or a cereal box. That's how good Mr. Petkoff is! Audible I want more of Kresley Cole's Demons and Robert Petkoff's voice. :)

Beauty & the Beast- IAD Style

Thank you Robert Petkoff for nailing the narration and keeping me listening even when I have other things to do. This series has become a Top 5 series for me. WOW. I would have never believed it as i could barely finish the first couple of books in this series.

In this series, we meet demon Malkom Slaine who has been dealt a pretty crappy hand by life. He doesn't know his father and his mother was whore who sold to to be a blood whore to vampires when he was a little boy. He has been used and abused all his life until he met his best friend Kallen, the King. Kallen gave Malkom a sense of belonging and a mission until they were betrayed and taken by vampires. Malkolm swore revenge on all those who held him captive and those betrayed him.

Carrow Graie, a witch, was sent to retrieve Malkolm by the human Order that kidnapped her, in exchange for his adoptee Ruby. Carrow has also had a crappy family life as she never really mattered to her parents. they treated her like she was invisible so now she has been living a life starved for love. When these two came in contact, Malkolm's heart started beating--she was his mate. Carrow knew Malkolm would help her, but could she betray him and return him into captivity? Would Malkolm forgive her betrayal?

this was like a beauty and the beast story because Malkolm started off as a beast...a sweet, but angry and protective beast. I find the stories where Kresley Cole gives us lykae and demons are just the best. They are sweet, funny, sad, high in action and just weaved together well.

Malkolm has been added to my list of favorite Heroes and has Carrow. They made a really sweet pair. I can't wait to read the next one in this series

Excellent! I Love the Lore!

If you listened to the rest of this series you will love this book just as much as the others. I loved Malkom and Carrow. I can't wait for the next book (book 9) to come out on audible. I listened to them all except the 2 that weren't available until now, Now i am only waiting on Regin the Radiant's book. Love the Lore and all the characters created in this fantastic series.

Robert Petkoff is the absolute best male narrator ever! If he would narrate every book that a male narrator would narrate I would be soo happy. LOL

Worth every penny!

What made the experience of listening to Demon from the Dark the most enjoyable?

Listening to Robert Petkoff - Awesome, fantastic and amazing.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the characters, the whole plot and the romance.

What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I've read the book and loved it. Both of the experience was worth it. Robert's voice and talent brings the characters to life and makes me fall into the story and just enjoy it all.

Nothing comes to mind since all of it was wonderful.

Any additional comments?

Started out low

This one started a little slow to me, but I kept with it... and it was worth the wait.

New To Audible, not a new release (Spoilers)

Would you listen to Demon from the Dark again? Why?

Yes, Because the story keeps my attention and the narrator does a great job creating the characters they way they were written.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Since I love the whole series it's hard to pick just one character since most of them have some roll or another to play in each book. If I had to choose just one from this story it would have to be Carro over Slain because the character although having her own sad issues didn't succumb to a victim mentality.

Which scene was your favorite?

The one where Slain finally gets a clue and goes to the cabin to see Carro and Ruby are packing up to leave. The emotion Slain goes through when he thinks they're leaving him serves him right even if he's wrong.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Ruby getting separated from Carro in the cave, and Carro getting Slain to help as well as his shock and astonishment of Carro's devotion to the girl.

Any additional comments?

I read this book so long ago that when it was billed as a new release I got excited and downloaded it. Normally I hate it when that happens but I loved the story enough that hearing it this time was like the first time all over. There's a difference in the terms New Release and New to Audible. If there's a way to tell the difference with out having to look in my nook or audible libraries first I'd love to know it.

I LOVE Demon's - especially in the Dark :)

Any additional comments?

The Immortals After Dark series holds a place on the upper echelon of my all time favorite paranormal romance books. I always look forward to the entertaining adventures of whichever couple the author has created each time. In the tenth title of this timeless series, the witch Carrow has been captured and held prisoner on an island run by the Order. Torques are placed on all of the Immortal prisoners to restrain their powers so they can be experimented on by barbaric humans seeking answers to their questions about their powers. The humans have deemed any Immortal "miscreants" and their ultimate mission is to destroy them all.

On the outside Carrow is a party girl, one who enjoys life, but inside is where she keeps the pain of a loveless childhood. When another witch is murdered, her daughter, Ruby, is left an orphan. Carrow knows she must step up and raise the child as her own. Except the Order has now made Ruby a prisoner and has offered Carrow a deal to save both their lives. This deal entails traveling to the hellish plane, Oblivion, to lure back a uniquely powerful demon the Order wants. The notorious demon Malkom has been alone for centuries but when he first catches the scent of a female in his world, he knows she is special and sent for him. Carrow is on a mission, to lure back a nightmarish demon. She never figured on falling in love.

I liked the tough talking, partying Carrow from other books and I was glad she was receiving her own story. But after completing the novel I didn't feel for her the way I wanted to. I thought there was too much time spent on the world-building of the Island and the humans who run the facility. Even though I did find out a lot about both Malkom and Carrow's past, the sections when they were together didn't fully convince me why they belonged together besides the usual finding-your-mate reason. I wanted to be convinced these two should be a wonderful couple and I wanted to see more of Carrow in action as a witch. I know the torque prevented her from using her powers while held captive on the island but for those six days in Oblivion it was deactivated. The battle scenes which took place there were light on the actual battle scenes. The romance was aplenty but I didn't get a true sense behind their coupling. I thought the most convincing and tender scenes were between Carrow and Ruby. The spark wasn't there for me this time around (like it was when I read about Conrad and Neomi in Dark Needs at Night's Edge.

I know others have really enjoyed this book and to a certain degree, I did. I began the story with high expectations and ended it satisfied and entertained, but not loving it. Robert Petkoff delivers an out-standing narration as always :)

Loved it!!

Any additional comments?

Great author, great book, great narrator! KC has created such an amazing world in IAD. Each character is unique and intriguing. My favorite part are the strong females and the alpha males of course. There couldn't be a more amazingly perfect narrator for this series. I love his cadence and the accents. One of my favorites!!
