Start your review of Dark Skye (Immortals After Dark, #14)
The hostile bickering went on too long for me. Should have talked it out sooner, rather than go around and around. Story could be shortened.

Contents include a few explicit sex scenes and lots of bloody gore. Language includes several F-bombs but no religious cussing and no demeaning terms for female anatomy (kudos).

I listened to the audio, narrated *superbly* by Robert Petkoff, so I probably have misspelled some names.

This is the "epic story" of Thronos and Lanthe, a tale of everlasting love,
“Before you were my enemy, you were my best friend.”

I was back to re-read this book once again for the fourth time. I really needed some sugar in my blood it, and this absolutely worked. Dark Skye is a perfect treatment for my hypoglycemia since the fisrt time I read, I knew that I wouldn't be disappointed. Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, is a remarkable hero in my opinion. He's dedicated and has been in pain for many years because his best friend, Lanthe, betreyed him and after that, he want

Best early birthday present!

At book #14 in the Immortals After Dark series, should you really care at this point?


This is why I read. This is what I wanted. I yearned for. I craved for. This story gets back to IAD tricky goodness. Take it from someone who hates following incomplete series. This is one to try.

First of all, I signed the petition for this story to be written years ago. The author promised she'd write it, give us the answers about these amazing secondary characters. She deliv

Not all Kresley Cole books are created equal. The last three books didn't wow me like some of the earlier books in the series, but THIS book reminded me of why I love this series so much. Like so many Immortals After Dark readers, I have been anxiously awaiting Thronos and Lanthe's book since Kiss of a Demon King. Cole does such a great job of planting the seeds of a romance, then stepping back and waiting for our anticipation to grow for their story. Sometimes, the payoff has been less than ste ...more

Finally! Thronos and Lanthe together at last!
3.5 stars. Their story is Violent~Tragic~Epic


Thronos and Lanthe met as children and immediately bonded. They were fated mates and their love was innocent and pure. Thronos would bring Lanthe food daily and take her flying. They were aware that their species were archenemies, Lanthe was a sorceress, and Thronos an angel. But they didn't care as long as they were together. That all changed the night Thronos and his dad invaded Lanthe's home and beheade

I can't believe that the day came, I read it and now it's over and I have to wait a whole new year for the next.

The book started kind of slow for my tastes. I wanted a something more in the first half of the book. But the second half more than made up for it.

Once again we have Nix stirring the pot and bringing together a couple that was a long time in the making. Thronos and Lanthe sould have been enemies, and they have been, kind of, for some time but these two were made for each oth

I absolutely love this series and always wait eagerly for the next book!

I liked Thronos and Lanthe who were introduced in Kiss of a Demon King and was looking forward to their story.
A winged Vrekener and a Sorceri , friends since they met as children and becoming enemies when the heroine's family is killed by members of the hero!!!

I did like the two together but just did not feel enough of an emotional pull with them. I felt frustrated with all that kept them from actually getting together.

Walls to the balls awesome. My first book of 2014 that "I want to have babies with".

This is going down as one of my top five favorite books in this series.

*bows down at the altar of Cole yet again*. Must read for fans of Cole and this series. So much fun reading and some hot foreplay and sexual hijinks *fans self* Heroine pops the hero's cherry in more ways then one. *rowl*

I also have a good idea whose book is next, and whoa, it's going to be explosive!

I'm a huge fan of the first 12 books of the IAD series. For me, things started to go sour with the first Dacians book and continued to go downhill with MacRieve (that promised so much). With this one I think that I'm definitely out of love with this series.

Before I start, I would like to say that after the epilogue in MacRieve, I didn't understand why the next one was about Lanthe and Thronos and not about MacRieve's twin since that's what the epilogue i

This was a bit slow to start for me, possibly because it took me awhile to warm up to Thronos. They guy just seems to have all kinds of issues! And his overly pious and hypocritical people were just terrible. Interesting how this world of Immortals closely resembles different cultures in the real world today.

Now, I'm not much for slut shaming, and yes, Thronos hang-ups with Lanthe's promiscuity were a bit tiresome, but on this point of contention, I truly saw both sides of the story. I have no

This was one of the more unique stories in this series. I looooved the very repressed Thronos paired up with the more sexualy liberated Lanthe. Another case of extreme enemies to lovers, combined with childhood friends and endless longing.

5 Stunning Stars! After the disappointing MacReive, Kresley Cole is back on track with Dark Skye. This book is everything I love about the Immortals After Dark series!

Melanthe "Lanthe" and Thronos, childhood friends, torn apart by devastating events and misunderstanding, are together again after 500 years apart and their story is epic (Thronos' words). I couldn't agree more!

Kresley Cole is brilliant! I love the way she writes most of the books in this series on a concurrent timeline. In Dar

I always love the enemies to lovers romances in this series!! Lanthe and Thronos were so good together. And hello, virgin hero.
I had been looking forward to to Melanthe's story ever since she was introduced in her sister Sabine's story. I grew even more curious about this sorceri when reading subsequent books in the series and hearing accounts of her captivity by The Order. After all of the built up anticipation, I admit that I feel a little underwhelmed. This one ended up being just "okay" for me.

From the start, I had difficulty connecting to Lanthe and Thronos. Whereas Sabine's story highlighted Lanthe's fierce loyalt

This is the story of Thronos and Melanthe, aka Lanthe, two opposing factions who meet as children. Thronos immediately recognizes Lanthe as his mate and things move along nicely until one horrible night...and then they all go wrong.

Lanthe is Sabine's (from Kiss of a Demon King) sister and a sorceress. She has the power of persuasion among a few other things and above all else...LOVES gold! She was ~somewhat~ enchanted by Thronos until one fateful night and after she "persuaded" him to not do s

“Before you were my enemy, you were my best friend.”

I have wondered about Lathe’s story with Thronos since her sister’s book Kiss of a Demon King. I really liked the Sorceri Sisters and all the mischief they seemed to be able to cause together. The cute and sensitive Lanthe always looking for love in all the wrong places was instantly likable to me and I really couldn’t wait to discover the past Lanthe and Thronos shared and why he wanted to get to her so much that he let the

I hate angels, and Vrekeners are the IMMORTALS AFTER DARK equivalent, so Kresley Cole really had to makeover Thronos’ personality in order to get me to like him. She mostly succeeded, and Lanthe was in the majority of his parts anyway which made them better by proximity alone. DARK SKYE opened with the island prison break, and then proceeded to build up the series’ story arc even more while also weaving in couple #15’s romance, a not-to-be-missed Nix gem, and the latest

What's not to love about this series? It's freaking fantastic. World building, plot, twists, complex characters, banter, badass heroes and kickass heroines. Bloody amazing if you ask me.

There are times you crack open a book and you just know you will fall in love. That was my feeling as soon as I started reading DARK SKYE. I haven’t been this giddy and excited about a book in a long time and just as I was excited to dive in, I was also really nervous. Will it live up to all my GREAT expectations?

Reading DARK SKYE was like rediscovering a great connection to an old friend. It made me feel again what it was like to read a truly amazing book. Sadly, I do feel like this level o

Kresley Cole never ceases to ensorcell me with her writing. I think this is the only PNR series I started when the first book came out and have faithfully kept up with. I’ve quit the Dark Hunters, the BDB, and so many others, but not Immortals After Dark. There’s something bewitching about her world and her writing and I can’t let go.

This is the long-awaited story of Lanthe and Thronos, one we’ve been seeing glimpses of since Kiss of a Demon K

Cole has done it again. I've heard some complaints about the decline in quality of the series (everyone has their druthers). But, IMHO, the vast majority of these books just keep on winning.

I fell a little in love with Lanthe in her sister's book, even more in love with her in Carrow/Malkolm's story, and by her own book, I was sold. She is very far from being the archetypal romance heroine that we're all used to, but I adore her. Melanthe is centuries old and has no curse, vow to the lore, or tr
Fani *loves angst*
A great addition to the series, filled with action and twists and finally some revelations about the greater scheme of things.

This book was once more, mainly about the heroine growing up and finding her own powers and self esteem, rather than the hero. Since I generally adore tortured & scarred heroes, I have to say, I expected more of Thronos than what we saw here. Instead, it was Lanthe's story, her chance to shine and though I ended loving and admiring her, I didn't feel an emotional connecti

THIS IS THE BOOK I NEEDED AS BOOK 8. I swear I’m going to hop skip and a jump right the fuck on over books 8-13 bc they make me sad, angry, and sick. I wasn’t a fan of Lanthe getting her literal tongue chopped off or the drawn out ending (the book was like 15 hours plz let these kids just be happy for once) (I also dislike having to dislike Sabine), but I sped the audiobook up to 3.0x, built a gumdrop mountain pass, and got over it.
