Melissa's Review:

Dark Skye is book 15 in the Immortals After Dark series. This book focuses on Lanthe, a sorceri, and Thronos, the price of the Vrekener clan. Our leading duo starts out meeting as children and Thronos knows that Lanthe is his mate. The beginning has a slight Romeo and Juliet feel. You see, the sorceri and the Vrekeners do not get along. After a few months of them meeting each other secretly, one thing leads to another and Thronos's father winds up going after Lanthe's family and things just do not end well. It puts our duo on the outs and Lanthe and her sister go on the run. Hundreds of years pass with Lanthe always on the run from her mate. Thronos on the other hand isn't one to give up easily, so he attempts to get Lanthe back throughout those hundreds of years.

Thronos has been through a lot in that time period and I wasn't quite sure if he'd be able to put aside everything he's been through and love Lanthe. I should have known that Kresley Cole would make the duo face challenges together and grow closer. They face some grueling tasks and I just kept rooting for the two to finally trust one another. I adore this series, it's never a picture perfect couple and they always face some difficult task, it leads to an entertaining read for me every time. If you haven't read this series yet, and you enjoy Paranormal Romance I think you'd enjoy it!

Narrator:

Robert Petkoff is one of the very few male narrators that I seem to enjoy. I know I need to check out more, but I always seem to want to go back to his work. He did a remarkable job as always with Dark Skye.

  1. I enjoyed this book, but it is my no means near the top of the list of my favorite IAD books. It was good, but not great in my opinion. I do love Robert Petkoff. He is one of my favorite narrators. He is my favorite male narrator (though I will say that Luke Daniels does a pretty damn good job too). I'm excited for the next book in this series.

    2. I know others loved it so it's very well just my hearing with him. It was so odd to me though. I've not had that with any others so far.
