Wow! Wow! Wow! To say I love Demon from the Dark is an understatement! I adore everything about this powerfully written book. 

With out a doubt, Demon from the Dark has become my favorite book in the series, and suffice it to say, it was mostly due to the... wait-for-it... romance. Yep, I ate my words big time when I said (in last book's review) that I had become mostly ambivalent to the romance element in this series.

“This was full when I left. Demon, did you eat some of my toothpaste?”

Demon from the Dark is one of my favorite books from the Immortals After Dark series. This book starts off strongly with the sudden attraction between Malkom and Carrow. Malkom is barbaric because he has been isolated for very long time until he finds his wicked little woman. He was stigmatized as an abomination. At first, their passion burns so fiercely my heart beat fast from those scenes they're togeter and while Malko

Disclaimer: I am in gushing mode, which means I have lots of clunky metaphors and a bit of unwise hyperbole. Don't hold it against this book or its author. It's all me!

I make no apologies for my deep love of this series. It rocks. This series is premium when it comes to paranormal romance. Hands down. With Demon from the Dark, I felt that intense love grow like a rose bush on Miracle Gro fertilizer.

Ms. Cole has written a flawless book here. She wrote a hot, hot romance with two characters that
Loved it loved it LOVED IT!!! One of the best books in the whole IAD series--and I know I say that all the time, because I love most of the books in the series. But something about this one really appealed to me, and I'm guessing that 75% of it is because I really fell for the hero, the hunk-a-licious vemon (part demon, part vampire) Malkom Slaine. Ahh, what a tortured hero he was...sympathetic, lonely, proud, humiliated, protective, possessive, innocent in many ways, down on himself...and so in ...more

I loved this slightly darker tale in the IAD series. Malkom and Carrow are one of my favorite couples in the entire series and their story should not be missed. I have to say that I have a new affinity for love stories where the H/h speak different languages and have to learn to communicate with one another. Malkom is so complex he has an excruciatingly painful background and was turned partly into the thing he hated the most. He has been alone for so long I think he has forgotten how t

4.5 stars, rounded down. Why am I so stingy? Hmm... cuz I paid $7.99+ tax for this and it had to blow my mind. It was good, I read it in 1 day, but I still skimmed some. And I hate skimming books I pay a lot of $$ for.

If it was "free" or on KU, I might have given it 4.75.

So... I think I like this one a bit better than I liked Lothaire. Mainly bc I love my tortured, built, hot, virgin, devoted, alpha heroes. And Malkom is definitely that.

However, speaking of this, not that he qualifies as a virgi

Demon from the Dark is the tenth book in the immense popular Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole. The series is popular for good reason: the combination of snarky heroines and brooding heroes makes for great entertainment. The stories are always engaging, funny and sizzling.
Despite the premise in all the books being the same (boy and girl realize they are fated mates and have to deal with that–the hard and sexy way) the stories don't feel repetitive. Cole usually manages to give a new t

With each book in this series, I find a new favorite! This story is no exception. I loved all the emotions of this tale. Even with limited [verbal] communication between the two characters for most of the book, you got so much out of their interaction! I love how Kresley Cole can take a vemon and a witch and make them so human that you ache when they ache and cry with happiness when they finally get their HEA. A love story is a love story, right??

At the end of Pleasure of a Dark Prince, we saw three separate epilogues where several creatures from the Lore were captured- one of whom was Carrow the Incarcerated.

Which brings us to Demon from the Dark.

Carrow is put in a cell with Lanthe (remember her? Sabine's sister...the one who creates portals) and a 7 yr old witch named Ruby. Ruby's mom was Carrow's cousin and coven-mate Amanda, and the Order has just killed her! So Carrow stepped up to the plate and adopte

Waitress : Here's your demon brew. We just got an entire shipment of the stuff, so you'll be good for the night.

Me : Thanks. You can keep those coming. I have my eye on a Vemon and I'm not quite sure if I'm to the "vein donation" stage. So demon brew will have to do.

Waitress : Which vemon? We don't get many of those around here.

Me : The loner. He's got a caveman vibe going on. He might be the one.

Waitress : You said that about the last one. And the one before that.

I’ve been on the hunt for more Lykae ever since Lachlain MacRieve, although I must admit that Kresley Cole’s vampires, demons, Valkyrie and witches have tested my loyalties a few times. This latest installment sure did push me to my limits, and Malkom was primarily to blame for that. His wounds were so fresh that I could smell the blood, and all I wanted to do was to play nurse, and kiss all of his ouchies. Plus, he’s a Vemon, and who doesn’t love two hunky supes for the

This series has become a Top 5 series for me. WOW. I would have never believed it as i could barely finish the first couple of books in this series.

Thank you Robert Petkoff for nailing the narration and keeping me listening even when I have other things to do.

In this series, we meet demon Malkom Slaine who has been dealt a pretty crappy hand by life. He doesn't know his father and his mother was whore who sold to to be a blood whore to vampires when he was a little boy. He has been used and abus

I really really liked this book. The couple is great and so very primal. Their fated love in the beginning showed the essence of natural chemistry as crutches like language were not given to them. They truly fought for each other. Malkom had a hard time trusting Carrow, rightfully so, and she stuck by him like the ride or die chick she is. Not to mention there is a sweet wee little bundle of a girl that makes this whole book heartwarming to the end

I love the world that Kresley Cole has created in her Immortals After Dark Series. The world of Lore filled with fey, werewolves, ghosts, demons, women strong, tortured and violent as the men with witty, pop culture dialogue…and incredibly hot smoking steaming scenes. She takes us through vivid journeys that even though your sane brain tells you…no not possible….the impossible become possible!!!!

Where do I even start with this one? It was fantastic! Ten books into this series and it's still going strong. Just when I'd settled into a sort of "routine" with these books, Ms. Cole throws me for a loop!

I think that Malkom is my favorite of all the males so far. God, I loved this guy! Who would've guessed that the super-scary vemon, a being that even intimidates the other supernatural beings of the lore, would end up being the one to capture my heart? Yet, he did.

ETA - Re-read! Drank this down in an afternoon. Loved it, though I wish Carrow and Malkom could have had more 'alone' time. ;)

Kresley Cole is one of my favorite authors today. So far she has not hit a sour note for me. So it's no surprise to me that I loved this book, but it did surprise me how MUCH I loved it.

I should start by saying that the House of Witches aren't my favorite Loreans. I get a little miffed every time there's a non-valkyrie heroine. So my excitement for this book? Not nearly a

It almost feels like an insult giving this 5 stars- it deserves soo much more!
I didn't think that Cole's Lore tales could get better.
I have adored them- each one more than the last..but 'Demon from the Dark' puts the rest to shame. It is so unbelievably good I am fearful to move onto the next, I know it can't get better than this!!
