Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:

From New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes this scorching tale of a demon outcast poisoned with vampire blood and the vulnerable young witch he vows to protect—even from himself.


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?

Darkfallen's thoughts:

This book was simply amazing...but I don't really think I need to tell you that. I mean Kresley Cole wrote it, and I am starting to learn she is some sort of writing God.

Simply put if she wrote it, it is not only HOT, but awesome writing. She has a way with words, and creates some of the most unique worlds in a way that you actually feel like your there. She makes living in alternate dimensions of Hell seem real and believable. I mean...who does that?!

Now on to the characters shall we?

I loved Carrow. She's strong, brave, and has a great sense of humor. I couldn't get enough of her interaction with Malkom. Especially before he was able to speak her language. That's right Malkom is a vemon that only speaks Demonish, but Carrow doesn't speak that language, so they spend a lot of the book not being able to communicate what they were really feeling with each other. This just brought a whole new depth to the story in my opinion. In fact at times I felt like I might cry because the line blurs between where you end and Carrow begins and you just feel so damn sad that he can't understand her. Then other times I wanted to cry for Malkom for all he goes through.

Don't' even get me started on how utterly HOT Malkom is. I mean he is ripped, has piercing, tattoos, and horns! Then top that with the fact that deep down he is a sweetheart but on the surface he is a ruthless killer. You can't help but want to fix him.

If you haven't started the Immortals After Dark series yet you have no idea how much you missing out on!



  1. Once I got into it, I really did like the main romance a lot. The main characters do change a lot, learning to become who they need to be in order to survive together. They make a lot of mistakes along the way, and there are struggles, but that makes their romance all the more special. If it weren't for the distractions of all the other characters I think I would have rated this book much higher.
