Publisher's Summary

Malkom Slaine: tormented by his sordid past and racked by vampiric hungers, he’s pushed to the brink by the green-eyed beauty under his guard.

Carrow Graie: hiding her own sorrows, she lives only for the next party or prank. Until she meets a tortured warrior worth saving.

In order for Malkom and Carrow to survive, he must unleash both the demon and vampire inside him. When Malkom becomes the nightmare his own people feared, will he lose the woman he craves body and soul?

Romantic/sexy! but beware angsty/child abuse

Would you listen to Demon from the Dark: Immortals After Dark, Book 10 again? Why?

This story was by far the most touching in the series- I even shed a couple tears because the love between Malkom and Carrow is so profound but there is a lot of angst before we experience the joy. <br/><br/>Both characters have suffered so much emotional pain in their pasts that overcoming their hurt to trust the other's love is arduous and there is more EVIL getting in the way than usual. The mounting tension of the succession, the loose ends from many of the previous stories and the introduction of scads more dark immortals complicate their love story. <br/><br/>Malkom's childhood abuse is profoundly more acute than the tragic pasts our previous immortals have experienced. Its heavy stuff and Kresley Cole doesn't make light of the subject. But I loved this book regardless of the dismal aspects because the love is so tender and is not driven by extraordinarily intense sexual attraction . There is also the sweetness of parental love with the introduction of an orphaned child which was refreshing.<br/><br/>Don't get me wrong - I love the amazing physical attraction and explosive passion that happens when the various heroes and heroines come together and Malkom and Carrow's love is no exception, but the depth and the need of it is a nice shift. And rest assured that here is still plenty of the lighthearted feminist hedonism that makes these books so fun.<br/><br/>I have written a SPOILER BELOW that is WORTH READING if childhood sexual abuse upsets you. It doesn't ruin the story, it just gives you insight into Malkom's character earlier on (which might also make the angst less uncomfortable.)<br/><br/>Malkom's mother sold him as a sex and blood slave to an sadistic vampire who forced him to have sex with he and his friends. The actual details aren't explicit but the anguish and long term damage caused by being rejected by a parent, being treated less than human as a slave, being raped by men when he was not gay and the shame/self loathing that resulted because he was just a child when it happened is at the crux of his character's arc. It disturbed and saddened me as it should but if you have issues beyond the normal outrage and are triggered by any of these factors don't read this book.

Can I just have a Robert Petkoff of my own?!

A superlative story voiced by a bone-melting, thigh-clenching lip god. Petkoff is MASTERFUL of all dialects, genders, emotions, pacing, tones...oh my stars, people, he just pets your soul in just. the. right. way.

Book 10

Any additional comments?

I don't know how Ms. Cole does it, but her stories are captivating, suspenseful, erotic, hard, and down right fantastic! Human issues of depravity, social isolation, self doubt & acceptance and other human things that we all struggle with are present in her stories. Awesome job of snaring the hearts and minds of your readers/listeners Ms. Cole!

one of my favorite of the series so far

Among my top favorites of the series. My heart cheered for Malcolm and Carrow, while breaking for them at the same time.

The narrator of these books is incredible. Perfect accents that he keeps consistent from book to book. He gives then even more personality.

The story is great. Very X-rated at times, but the stories are honestly well written and interesting and captivating. It's not a series for the prudish, but it's truly not smut either. Love it!

Favorite Narrator and a Favorite Series

Like most of her immortals, Malcolm was dealt a real crappy hand in life. As a boy, his mother sold him to a vampire with a preference for children. He was used in the most horrid way until he got too old for the nasty vamp and then tossed aside.

Years later, Malcolm is captured by a vampire and forced into a new existence, that of a Vemon. Now an outcast and abomination, he lives his life in solitude and killing anything that threatens his survival. Until the day a green-eyed beauty makes his heart beat...

Carrow is living the life until she's abducted by a human intent on destroying immortals. Suddenly she becomes the guardian of a little girl and is forced to betray a Vemon, who happens to be her mate. After a rocky start and a language barrier between them, she develops feelings for her Vemon. Lust, I mean love, is a universal language! She just has to figure out a way to keep her Vemon and get Ruby back before it's too late.

My heart went out to Malcolm, Carrow and little Ruby. They were put into difficult situations and they each got hurt by them. In the end though, they found a family with each other. I especially loved Malcolm with Ruby, it was so darned cute and sweet! Another great book in the IAD series, and as usual Robert Petkoff really brings these characters to life. One book closer to THE book. You know, that one I've been looking forward to since HE was introduced in the series.

Intensely Deep!

It is impossible not to fall in love with Malcolm. He's damaged; been through so much deceit, trauma, and abuse. Throughout it all he has remained stalwart and loyal. He's never fallen and is truth personified. Caro is a lucky witch to be mated to such an honest vemon. A truly beautiful story. I look forward to more on Ruby.
