it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010-reads, vampires


This is the fourth book in the Immortals After Dark series and this series seems to be getting better. So each book tells you the story of a powerful supernatural male and his fight to win his mate and let me tell you there are fights. Easily this book was the most emotional for me so far and very unconventional with the ending and the love story between the two main characters.

Conrad Wroth is feared and he is hated, but no one could hate him as much as he hates himself. He is a vampire and they aren’t well liked and even more so for Conrad, he is red eye vampire which makes him dangerous and a whole lot of crazy. You see Conrad drinks directly from his victims then he kills them and when you take blood directly from the source you get all their memories. The things he kill aren’t your upstanding supernatural beings he kills evil demons and other vampires etc, so to walk around with their memories this means that Conrad is a ticking time bomb. He has no sense of reality, days and time have no meaning to him its like he lives in an altered universe where everyone is a potential enemy and in his case they might actually be. Hell bent on destroying everything even his brothers, but faith is about to set in and the brothers he wanted to destroy, are the ones who will bring his salvation and lead him to his Bride.

Neomi Laress once a famous ballerina loving her success; and boom ex-fiancé aka crazy plunges a knife into her chest, and just like that dead. Trapped in the home she took her last breath in, now a ghost bored out of her mind and she is one bored ghost all she wants is a permanent resident to reside in the home she loved. The resident she gets is hell bent and destroying her home but she cant help but be drawn into his wild and crazy red eyes. A crazy vampire; but she cant help being drawn to him wanting to tame the crazy beast inside of him. The more reason to want him around is that he can see her, he can even speak with her something that has been impossible in the 80years since her death. Seems though Conrad aka Extreme Crazy is trying to ignore her but Neomi has ways to grab a mans attention even in ghost form.

Conrad is falling for the ghost, she is everything he wants in a woman and life just seems a lot more normal when she is around. She relaxes his mind and soothes his hunger to kill. If only there was a way to resurrect her then she could bring his unbeating heart to life and with her he will take his first breath in 300years. Neomi wishes she could be corporeal for the vampire she has grown to love, in this she would give anything. So it begins a love that seems that will only end in destruction will melt your heart. They will have many a obstacles to overcome because Conrad is hated and now he has someone that he cares about, loving him comes with a price.

I have to say I loved Conrad, your heart will go out to him. He is so honest with his feelings whether its hating or loving you. Plus he’s funny in a straight jacket and white padded walls sort of way. I liked him and the ghost together, not a normal relationship which makes it spicy. Overall a fun and interesting read with wicked and delicious characters. Kelsey Cole does not disappoint. Its still raining candy in this one and you need to stop by the candy store.

Just let me know.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) Awesome review, Darien. I love this book!

Desperado Fantastic review, Darien! I loved this novel as well, which is funny because I have a fear of ghosts! I thought this was one of the sweeter romances in the IAD series. Conrad isn't nearly as he-man alpha male as the rest of the the heroes, which is refreshing.

Mahlet Great review! I loved Conrad, too, and I remember flipping to the hot cover a lot while reading this one. It's the point in the IAD series where covers starting beginning less cheesy and more hawt! ;)

DarienMoya Thanks Lethal, Danielle and Mahlet, this one was my second fave after Sbastian's book.

The cover is super hot, I just wanna lick it.

Missyb Does a story carry over into each book in the series, but each book is about a different character with some carrying over?

LOL, it does have some carrying over. Each characters gets his/her own story but you see them in previous books so I would recommend to read them in order. Makes things easier, and gives you time to know about all the supernatural beings from that world.

Auntee Great review--loved this book too!
