Review: Wicked Abyss

Wicked Abyss (Immortals After Dark, #18)

Wicked Abyss(Immortals After Dark #18) by Kresley Cole

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hardcover, 384 pages

I'm amazed at another one of Kresley Cole's brilliant masterpieces! I love the characters, i.e., Uthyr, Sian, Calliope aka Lila, and the demon realm, Pandemonia, aka Wicked Abyss. At first glimpse it seemed dark, scary and void but no! It was beautiful and magical. I loved everything about Wicked Abyss! I envy Calliope's wardrobe/clothes closet. I would definitely fancy wearing just about anything worth conjuring in the way of dress. The only character I didn't like is the arrogant and lying son of a bitch Saetth. Calliope's cousin is the ruler/king of Sylvan and is a dick.

Goodreads Synopsis: 

This fairy tale doesn’t end with a kiss… A spellbinding Immortals After Dark tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole!
The terrifying king of hell... As a boy, Abyssian “Sian” Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster—just as she’s been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.
Meets his match. Princess Calliope “Lila” Barbot’s people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for aeons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can’t remember, Lila makes her own promise: to bring down the wicked beast for good.
Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after? As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast’s cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war?

A 2017 New Release ~ Shadow's Seduction


Shadow's Seduction (Immortals After Dark, #17; The Dacians, #2) by Kresley Cole

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Paperback, 248 pages

Shadow's Seduction is about two male creatures of the Lore: A Vampire of Dacia and the other, a Demon of Abbadon. Mirceo is the spoilt rich Vampire who desires Caspion the tracker. We know Caspion from Shadow's Claim. Inevitably they kiss and sparks ensue from that point.
Shadow's Seduction is shorter in length than any other book in the Immortals After Dark series. There isn't much to the story other than the sex but I was happy that Lothaire, Trehan and Bettina made an appearance.

Goodreads Synopsis: 

In this scorching Immortals After Dark/Dacian novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole brings together a wicked vampire prince used to getting everything he desires and a demon warrior who always felt like an outcast. 
A NIGHT OF DEBAUCHERY . . . 
Prince Mirceo Daciano and his new friend, Caspion the Tracker, comb the streets of Dacia, drunkenly seeking out pleasures of the flesh. In what should have been a typical night, they coax a bevy of nymphs to bed. To impress their females, the demon and the vampire kiss on a dare. 
CHANGES THEM FOREVER . . . 
Once they finally break away from their soul-searing kiss, they find themselves alone--and shaken. Had they imagined their explosive chemistry? Obstacles--ranging from a death sentence to exile in a war-torn dimension--threaten to destroy their lives . . . and the vulnerable promise in that one kiss. 
HOW LONG CAN THEY RESIST THE FIRE THAT BLAZES BETWEEN THEM? 
Even if Mirceo accepts Caspion as his fated mate, the seductive vampire still must convince the stubborn demon that their bond is forever. And any royal Dacian union must receive the blessing of King Lothaire, an unpredictable and savage killer. . . .
