Présentation de l'éditeur

In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole spins a sultry tale of a mighty warrior scarred inside and out and the beguiling sorceress with the power to heal him—or vanquish him forever.

Eternal Obsession
As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

Endless Yearning
Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.

Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance?
With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

I don't usually write reviews out of lazyness mostly, but also because I feel like they serve little purpose as ultimatimately people can decide for themselves if they like something or not. I am making an exception for this book and here's why. Kresley Cole seems to be very Internet and marketing savvy. I'll bet she's aware and perhaps even reads her readers' reviews and I really hope that she reads this one (slim chances, but hey, I'm feeling optimistic today).

It's not that I didn't like the book. In absolute terms it was an ok book, with ok characters and an (you guessed it) ok story. The problem is of course that I've read other books by this author, better, more compelling books (Carrow's, Emma's, Conrad's books). These were books I enjoyed, books I could recommend to my friends and especially books I could reread at my leisure. And herein lies the problem. If this were a separate incident, I'd be less likely to react, but this would be the 4th book in a row (it all started with the absolute crapfest that was Regin's book) where I've felt like the overall quality of the series has been slipping and it's made me incredibly sad. I don't know if this is just the inevitable demise of a series on it's 14th installment or whether it is the result of Kresley Cole stretching herself too thin (the Professional? Really? The Dacians? WTF? The Dacians book was bad, but I wasn't as invested in that series as I am in IAD! The Arcana Chronicles? The jury's still out on that one, but only because the worlbuilding is quite fascinating and very much in spite of the love triangle that seems to manifest itself in every single YA book these days). In truth, I resent the author. By trying her hand at too many artistic venues, I feel like she's lost what made her initial series worthwhile.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not the Best… Not the Worst 14 août 2014
Par Ashlee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This will contain, what I deem to be, minor spoilers.

This is my favorite series - absolutely no question. I would rate the majority of the books in this series as 5-stars, with the secondary majority 4-stars. In the case of this one - I think the anticipation had my hopes up too high. I mean, let's review: We "witnessed" Thronos dragging Lanthe off in Demon From the Dark, never to be seen again - until this book. I read DFTD the day it was released, so that occurred four years and four books ago! So when I finally got this one, I all but devoured it in one day. And it is a good book - I have high expectations for her books in general, but after such a long wait, the bar was set pretty high for this one. But Ms. Cole delivers with this series and high expectations are usually rewarded. She always tells a good story and the world-building/plot-driven aspects are always right on target. I know when I read an IAD book the couple will be hot, the plot will go somewhere, and I'll enjoy the ride.

I would have made this four stars, but for the fact that I reread these books all the time - so for sheer rereadability, this one won't be seeing much screen time. I just found it to be lackluster. Not in the same realm as the worst books in the series, but definitely not in the top half of the best books either. I've pinpointed this to a few reasons:

1) The aforementioned wait, with expectations growing too high and many books released since the cliffhanger scene in DFTD.

2) Very little payoff - Events in Shadow's Claim had already taken care of certain spoiler-ish characters (I haven't reread SC since it was first released - it being my least favorite book of the entire series - so I had forgotten there was a death of a character who is mentioned a lot in this book). I also found things to be a little less fleshed out than I would have expected - the Skye Hall scenes with the hierarchy, etc. Glossed over. I really expected more reformations. Thronos also has many mentions in the beginning of his "Wrath", yet it seems to fall away with no side effects after a certain point. Something he's lived with for centuries, you'd think it would be more of an addicts battle for control than a habit that was easily shed.

3) No strong connection to the characters. Lanthe was alright, but I never really fell for Thronos. There are so many compelling male leads in this series and he just didn't do it for me. I also didn't like that Lanthe wanted things that she never really got (in the spelled out sense - for instance, she wanted a man who LIKED her and that was elaborated on a lot, but we never really got the payoff for that want. Look at Mariketa and Bowen's story - throughout it, we are in Mari's head and hear how desperately she wants to be chosen first. She no longer wants to be "B-Team" and she wants a man to say, "I choose you." This is elaborated on over and over and until it does actually happen. Now, that same instance with Lanthe wanting to be liked for herself happens in Dark Skye - and obviously Thronos did like her, but there's no real moment where she gets that.

4) And my biggest reason for not loving it: It was among the run-and-hide/constant location-plane changes books of the series. There have been a lot of these and frankly, they're getting old.

To elaborate on that last point: When the characters are constantly jumping from plane to plane, constantly under threat of death and the need to survive, you lose the connection. One reason MacRieve, last year's book, was so good was that the bulk of it took place in two locations: New Orleans and the MacRieve home in Scotland. It was very character driven and that's what made it so good. You had the characters in the same place (or plane) for a large portion of time, so you could really delve into their relationship or lack thereof and the payoff is usually huge! The same with Lothaire - a huge chunk of it took place in his apartment and that helped the story to keep it in once place. Sure, they had a few incidents elsewhere, but you can't break that book up into Acts, where this set will be the demon realm, this set will be the sea kingdom, this set will be Skye Hall, etc.

In the last book, Nix said that Lanthe was in Skye Hall and that made me think she was trapped there for the majority of her book, with no way to escape. Perfect! Similar - in general plot - to Ellie and Lothaire, but in no way similar to that same setting or those characters. It could work! But no, we get the survivalist story.

It did have it's good qualities - #1 being the shocking surprise of Furie! Kresley once answered my question about who her mate is and I've been waiting on pins and needles for years to get their book - looks like it's one step closer to happening! Her appearance had me practically jumping up and down.

Another good part of this book - even if I never really connected to Thronos, I did love the way he loved Lanthe! Highlighted in glorious detail in the sea kingdom when he does something no other male has been able to do.

There were other numerous good aspects to this book as well - the first intimate scene (with the bubbles) was original and had a slight twist to it at the end that I didn't expect.

And of course, Nix had some scene stealers that had me smiling from ear to ear! She always makes a book more interesting. Even though I know hers will be the last book in the series (and knowing that up front, I can wait -somewhat- patiently for it) I'm dying to know who she ends up with! Powerful god or weaker human? Paranormal? Someone we've already seen? Although I'm pretty sure I saw where Kresley said we have not met him yet, so there's one little tidbit to file away.

Another good thing about this book in particular: The ending. Actually this could be filed under good and bad. The ending is great - it just ends very abruptly. More-so than any other book in the series. Usually there's a cliffhanger or teaser (and while I'm not a fan of those in any book or series, and I appreciated not having one in this one) it seemed to just stop. I thought I was missing a chapter or epilogue to really finish out what happens in the last two pages.

This is still my favorite series, I still wait with baited breath to see who will have the next book (Furie? Munro? Cara?) and while I enjoyed this one, I didn't absolutely love it and need to reread it the next day - which has happened with many of her books. Just one person's admittedly long-winded opinion.

Caution *SPOILERS*

I repeat **SPOILERS**

Wow! Just wow! Kresley has actually outdone herself. She's apparently said that this is her best IAD novel.... EVER. I'm not totally on board with that statement (as unfortunately my heart belongs to Mari and Bowen's story!) but by the gods! This book did NOT disappoint! We first met Lanthe and Thronos in book number 7, so their story has been a long time coming. After escaping the Order, and the Island on which they are imprisoned, Throno's FINALLY has Lanthe! For centuries he has hunted her, and now that he has her, he wont be letting go any time soon....

I really shipped Throno's and Lanthe. Watching their story unfold was really special. I liked where Kresley chose to take the direction of their relationship and I also like how fleshed out their time apart as children growing into adults was. It really gave their relationship that extra something. I liked that she chose different for our female and male leads, having our male lead play the virgin while our female lead was more... promiscuous! Not to say that this hasn't happened before in other IAD novels (Carrow and Malkom) but Lanthe and her male conquests had a lot of back story, which for some reason as a reader, I really liked and appreciated.

My heart broke for the couple a lot of times throughout the book. When Lanthe relived Throno's memory of when he found her again when she was 16?! By the gods, I think hearts broke all over the world reading that part. Ugh, or when she relived his memory of falling as a boy from the tower?? So sad! It seemed heartbreaking to me that this couple had wasted so MANY YEARS with misunderstandings and half spoken truths. What ever happened to just sitting down and talking it out?! Oh, I forgot.. in the Lore, if you do this... you risk losing a paw or a limb! However, I'm glad to see that they got their happy ending.

OH-EM-GEE about Furie?!?!?! Did any body else pee their pants with excitement at the mention of this?! I almost wanted to skip Lanthe and Throno's story all together because I HAD to know what happens to her! I'm dying. DYING I TELL YOU!!!!! I couldn't be more excited for the development of this story. Her mate is gunna have to be a huge bad ass to be a match to her! And Nixies petition for godesshood!!!?!?!?!?! Wow wow wow. I'm salivating! *watching this space*

Some issues!
1) I was a little miffed that Aristo's was already dead upon Throno's and Lanthes return to Skye. While he had it coming (Trehan? killed him in Betina's book: Shadow's Claim), I still think that he was such a huge vital part of Lanthe and Throno's story, that his death was a bit of a let down. I wanted retribution for Lanthe and Sabine! His death left a lot to be desired, it was so anti-climactic.
2) I would have LOVED to have seen more on what happened with Pandemonium at the end of the novel. You knew that Kresley was building up to Lanthe and Throno's return, but you don't exactly KNOW what happens. I can only assume that she will return to this in a cross over in another upcoming book.
3) Also, are you telling me that in all of this time. Over the centuries and millenia's that the Vrekener have lived as a species... not ONE of the them has EVER traced? Or EVER come to the realization that they are either demons or very closely related to the demon species????? Seems pretty far fetched to me, Pandemonium or not.
4) The ending, with Morgana. Before I read the book, I had the ending mapped out in my head as a massive battle scene in my head of the Vrekener warring against the Sorcery and the Rage demons. Sabine was there in my head too, and some awesome battle was taking place. But in reality, the ending was much more anti-climatic also. It was a bit of a let down BUT I still loved it so... I'll let it go.
5) And last but not least... Lanthe's pregnancy... we could see that coming a mile off. The mention of her fertility cycle throughout the entire book kind of put a damper on things. You knew it was coming so it wasn't really a surprise.

Overall, Kresley did an amazing job with this book. She should be proud. All of her IAD novels are off the charts! I enjoyed this book and I would recommend to all!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Macrieve, now this...Kresley Cole is writing these books, right? 5 septembre 2014
Par Carroll Jane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I've enjoyed almost all of K.C.'s IAD novels (exceptions being: Dacian spin-off Shadow's Claim, Macrieve, and Pleasures of a Dark Prince-took my time reading each which is very rare since I usually read all her books in rapid succession), but I'm disappointed to add Dark Skye to my exception list as well.
(Spoilers Here, Look Away If You Will)
I had high expectations based on their perceived relationship/personality glimpsed from the beginning of Kiss of a Demon King. I liked Lanthe, the love-lorn sorceress and Thronos, her best friend turned enemy. I was hoping there'd be tension amongst both factions since it was told that they had been centuries-long enemies but the blame seemed only one-sided toward the sanctimonious Vrekeners. I was under the impression that Sorceri were devious, treacherous, and selfish (against others and their very own) beings yet they come out as self-righteous victims. Why? Because they don't hide who they are? You can't tell me that every Sorceri shied away from Vrekeners in fear? They do have powers, right? Where's the vengeance, the bloodshed? Year long centuries of being hunted would've joined them into an (albeit reluctant) alliance but the Sorceri are too power hungry and willing to steal from their own species that they don't even bother with Vrekeners (Who happen to have a trunk full of Sorceri powers just there for the taking?). Why is there no mention of them attacking any Vrekeners or at least planning an attack (except in self-defense which doesn't even count because then it's expected and accepted).
As for Vrekeners...
What happened to the vengeful angels waiting to settle a score? I loved our first glimpse of Thronos, like a vulture perched on a dead limbed tree with lightening streaked across his scarred face, surrounded by his flock of Vrekeners. He seemed maniacal, crazed, and roguish. I guess (and this is my fault), I wanted him to be. I don't know why Kresley Cole made him and his species lack lustered with a colorless life, colorless emotions, and colorless relationships amongst mates. Forced chemistry is my guess. She does like her couples to be opposites but she could've done it better, like maybe Thronos having departed from his Vrekener roots, deny his royal title and create his own rules to suit his own purpose. Why were the rules even in place? We don't know and it wasn't breached nor pondered over. There had to be a reason for the strict rules and if Aristo was king, why didn't he change the rules to better suit his ideas? He would have had a strong following given the "supposed" depths of their hate for Sorceri. Why are Vrekeners insulted with the idea of demonic ancestry? Why, why, why? Once again it isn't explained but hey, it's paranormal romance, we're supposed to be swept up in the hot romance of the main characters. Not worry about the devices garnering their lifestyle decisions. Apparently, I'm over-thinking things.
Now about the romance...
I'm afraid there's not much to talk about. One of the things I enjoy about Kresley Cole's novels is that she doesn't shy away from sex scenes with a faded blackout and we're to assume the characters, like every couple, just had sex. No, she goes into details. It just adds more heat to the romance and it's palpable. There is also a well-devised plot to carry you along the journey and some life-changing moments for the characters and while Dark Skye has this, it just seemed anti-climatic and (once again) forced. Too much action, too much anticipation, and when they finally do get together at the end, I was BORED. I agreed with Kresley, believing that this novel should have been a novella. Surprisingly for her, Lanthe and Thronos stole the show in the Kiss of a Demon King and developed a, shall I say, cult following (massive understatement-myself joining the brigade) and of course, her agent(s) -don't really know what goes on behind publishing doors, just hearsay- smelt gold. Rightfully so or else they wouldn't be good agents!-and I'm not one to envy a person's golden opportunity to cash in. You'd be an idiot not to but it came with a price...for us, the fans. What I was hoping for was a relationship rebuilt from the past, meaning, I didn't want Thronos to have a mate, have a compulsion to follow his mate, be driven through centuries to sate his desire from his mate, only his mate. For once, I wanted a Kresley Cole couple to not be fated. Does that make sense? I really wished for their relationship to be founded on friendship alone. Not a grudging impulse so you can imagine from the very beginning it was a letdown. If any author could create a complex and interesting story surrounding her characters (ex. Lothaire/ Ellie), it would be Kresley Cole and Vrekeners should've been a new species for us to delve into but surprise, (MAJOR SPOILER-not really) they were demons the whole time (complete with wings!). Kresley, my girl, please tell me you're not getting lazy on us!
Characters:
Lanthe gave me whiplash. Don't get me wrong, from the few appearances she has had throughout the series, I've always liked her. She had an un-maidenly curiosity about her that intrigued me. Innocent yet experienced. A female character that has had countless lovers searching for something unattainable. She is refreshingly unapologetic about her past just as well she shouldn't be. Or should she? I'm sorry but Lanthe has had countless lovers, all of them ending up using her. For powers and/or sex. She knows this, it’s a pattern of hers but after 500 years, wouldn't you think she'd evolve into a smarter person or at the most, look for a guy who wants the same thing. She just ends up with the same dine and dash individuals. If she wants Thronos to respect her, past included, she needs to respect herself. It would've been entirely different if she was just interested in sex (one night stands, anyone?) but she was also looking for someone to love her the way the younger Thronos had long ago. Looking for love in all the wrong places is an understatement especially when you look in the same place (Definition of insanity according to Albert Einstein applies). I began to question Lanthe's dignity and pride, her integrity. She just appeared to be a glutton for punishment idiot. The whiplash comes from her personality change. She acts like Sabine. I liked Sabine with her blasé attitude and hidden emotions; she was one of a kind. It worked for Sabine but Melanthe was presented differently from her sister. Unfortunately, Melanthe believes she should act like her older sister, brave and blasé, which is unfortunate because after living with a psychotic stepbrother, she is shown retaining her angst naïveté. I thought that something special, really brave of her to remain the same after being confronted with so many atrocities. She still stays true to herself or so I thought. That isn't the case however. (Spoiler) Melanthe, even after finding out that Thronos didn't have anything to do with his parents finding out about them, still doesn't feel the need to apologize for purposefully hurting him, i.e. persuading him to jump to his death (and she calls Thronos self-righteous). Kanye West's "Heartless" song is playing in my head. Also, she basically brags about her prowess in the bedroom to Thronos, claiming sex with her would be life-altering, universally-molecularly changed . We have a saying here on Earth to "put your money where your mouth is," and for all Melanthe's bragging, I am to understand her lifetime lovers didn't stick around why would Thronos? Oh, wait, that's right I forgot, they're mated to be together so of course it would be life-altering for him, and him alone. This is part of Melanthe's character development that just rings false for me. With all the rejection, Melanthe shouldn't be as confident with her sexuality as she is. She should feel self-conscious with herself like she is about her powers but once again that isn't the case. Which is a shame because a self-conscious Melanthe would have been more relatable. Who hasn't been self-conscious before, feeling like they don't measure up? Melanthe was presented that way in Kiss of a Demon King but not in Dark Skye. She is a completely different character, one that fell flat.
As for Thronos...sigh...he could have been something, he could've been another Lothaire, plotting and conquering his enemies but instead he was a stalwart knight who slut-shamed his "supposed" mate. Basically a hypocrite. I blame myself for imagining him a certain way but after years waiting for their story to be told, you can't blame a girl for wondering and expecting him to be a certain way. It's how my mind works. Even now I'm thinking about how the story should've gone instead of how it went. This is how I imagined Thronos: a rogue Vrekener, following his own rules, awaiting vengeance for his parents' death and finding his friendship and feelings for Lanthe growing back, being confused and guilty over his feelings, having confront his brother about his past deeds, and being intrigued by the Melanthe in the present. The way I was intrigued before reading Dark Skye.

I don't know about the rest of you, K.C. fans, but I was disappointed at the meh feeling after finishing the book. After all, I spent eleven dollars plus tax, on a ebook (lets face it, are ebooks really worth that much? Convenience wise-I guess so-because I sure as heck fell for it) that left me with a meh feeling. I felt cheated. That's my own fault, after being disappointed in Macrieve I should've known better. I'm wary of her hardcover novels now with the short and simple titles (exception once again being Lothaire). Heed caution those on the fence, ready to make the purchase.
P.S. Sorry for the long rant but since I spent roughly twelve dollars on an awaited book that fell short, I believe I am warranted for complaining. I'll get off my soapbox now:).

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not My Favorite IAD 14 août 2014
Par Andrea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I’ve been a fan of the entire Immortals After Dark series for years. I’ve read them all and couldn’t wait for this one to come out, and maybe I built it up a little too much in my own mind because this one didn’t wow me like many of the others have.
In true Cole fashion, we are introduced to another bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold, Thronos, and while I love that formula, I found him both endearing and odd. His stilted dialogue began to grate on my nerves, and his self-righteousness went on entirely too long. His imperfection seemed to lie more with the physical and less with the psychological, so his growth didn’t progress as smoothly for me as many of her other heroes. I liked Lanthe’s free spirit and her modern references, but she too just didn’t completely captivate me as Cole’s heroines normally do.
Their journey through the freaky, Alice in Wonderland of torment was, by far, the most interesting part, but it didn’t last long enough for me. I found many other parts a little trite, and Lanthe’s acceptance by his people seemed much too easy.
All that being said, Cole, as always, doesn’t drive the reader insane with too many interruptions of the main love story, and I must admit I devoured the bulk of the novel in a day.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A ditz, a prig, and virginity drama 8 août 2014
Par Ann Ray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If you've read the series, you know Cole has a formula: men who are casually opportunistic about sex find their one true love among their most hated enemies, and she's either a virgin or close to it. I think someone may have pointed this out, because we finally got a female character who had sex more than a couple times over the centuries.

Yay for equality, right? Sadly, no.

Lanthe is a ditz, hopping in bed with a series of untrustworthy men who tended to swipe her powers on their way out the door. Since all she had to do to avoid this was hook up with the many Lore species which can't steal powers, it kind of feels like she's being punished for promiscuity. And while she claims to be unashamed of her history, I couldn't help feeling she'd jump into a time machine if given the opportunity to wait for her One True Love.

Thronos is a prig, coming from a culture that values silent missionary sex--preferably with a "claiming sheet" between the parties. He spends most of the book sniping at Lanthe or struggling mightily to get past her history. Eventually he discovers the joys of sex, pretty much because it feels good and is with his fated mate. Unfortunately, he seems to skip the notion that sex between consenting adults isn't sinful at all.

There's a plot in there amid the relationship drama--a pretty interesting one even, but it plays second fiddle. And way too little time with Nix, Bertil, and the rest of the gang.
