Nichole | 677 comments I'm excited for this! I hear so much about it and have never started. Can't wait!


message 5: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (Angel4492) | 21256 comments Same, Nichole. I've read the first two and have been meaning to get to the rest. I'll have to make a point to read along on this one.


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 5359 comments What about MacRieve (Immortals After Dark, #13) by Kresley Cole?

and are you cutting it a bit close to set reading like 1 Jan - 31 Dec 2013? :-)

Smarty pants! >;) Nah, thanks for the catch! I've updated the dates.

We will only be hosting the (re)read one-book-a-month Jan-Dec, but you're welcome to keep on reading. :) Dark Skye, book #14, is due out 8/2014.


message 8: by Lis (new)

Lis | 2677 comments I've only read the first couple in the series too. I even snagged most from the Borders going out of business sale, but I've turned into a paperback snob. I'll try to join in too.


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 5359 comments I've read all of them...and sometime does an occasionnal re-read.

ThatEzi  (Oh My Shelves) (Ezinwanyi) | 1769 comments I will join...I can't say I am super excited, but I did enjoy books 1-3...then I waited 6 months to read 4 and 5 and was super lost:(


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 5359 comments Yeah, many of the action in all the books are taking place at the same time so it's a bit of a puzzle but it's half the fun of those books....and Nix.

I am one of the few who found that nutjob really annoying. She was truly crazy and needs help.

Ezi how can you not just love Nucking Futs Nix hahaha. She is the highlight of the series! There has been speculation (view spoiler).

about the spoiler...Just shoot me now. I actually like Torin!

Gea (Gea89) I'm just starting with the series, will read A Hunger Like No Other soon but will probably leave the rest for next year


message 17: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2164 comments I only have one word for you: AUDIOBOOK.

The narrator for this series is one of the best romance narrator I've ever listened. He converted me into the series - I read the first couple of books and was just meh. But now, I pre-order the audios as they come out.

Only books 9, 10 & 11 are left to be released. #9 is coming out in early December and according to S&S, #10 and #11 will come out in March and May of next year.


message 18: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (Angel4492) | 21256 comments Ah, good idea, DG. I'll have to see if I can snag some of hubby's Audible credits for this one. >;)


message 19: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2164 comments Just listen to a sample. I've never heard Scottish accents so scrumptious! He does all the accents so well and he just gives it his all. The love scenes are blush inducing. (Robert Petkoff, I love you!!)

Just note that #1 is not narrated by him.

Well that was just from a novella, I doubt if it happens. I haven't read the last LOTU so I'm sure things have changed especially since Torin's book is coming out in the next few months.

Jenifer (jensamaha) | 6 comments Oooh! I'm so glad this series was chosen! I've read books 2 & 3 (got confused with the order lol) and am looking forward to reading the series with all of you.


message 35: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (Angel4492) | 21256 comments Glad to see we'll have some members participating in the series read. :D Remember, after 1/1/14, you can start using the challenge feature, if you'd like, or stick with sharing your progress here. If you choose to use the challenge feature, you'll need to create a shelf (within your personal bookshelves) to tie to this challenge. Then, whenever you mark one of those books read in 2014 it'll automatically update your challenge stats within the group.


message 36: by Christina T (new)

Christina T (crysteena73) | 179 comments Can someone walk me through on how to create a shelf to tie to the challenge please? I uploaded all my books from shelfari and all my shelves were already created from my tags from shelfari so I didn't have to do anything to make them. How do they tie in to the group here?


message 37: by Lauren (last edited Dec 14, 2013 02:01AM) (new)

Lauren (MsThestral) | 1290 comments Hi Christina,
Here are the steps to creating a shelf and linking it to the challenge widget:

Create a shelf:
1. Click on the My Books tab at the top of the GR homepage.
2. On the left hand side, click on edit next to the greyed out "bookshelves"
3. Put in the name of the shelf that you want to create in the "Add a Shelf" box and click "add"

Connect to challenge widget:
1. The challenge widget doesn't seem to be active yet but when it becomes active you click on the "Immortals After Dark Series Read" link on the SOS homepage.
2. In the "My goal is to read" box put how many books you want to read from the series
3. In the "Enter a shelf name for this challenge" box put the name of the shelf you created (make sure you include the dashes ("-") if there are any in the name) and click "save".
4. Add the books to the shelf by tagging them and when you mark the book as "read" the widget will automatically update.

Hope this helps :0)
