In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole spins a sultry tale of a mighty warrior scarred inside and out and the beguiling sorceress with the power to heal him—or vanquish him forever.
Eternal Obsession As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.
Endless Yearning Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.
Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance? With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

This will contain, what I deem to be, minor spoilers.
This is my favorite series - absolutely no question. I would rate the majority of the books in this series as 5-stars, with the secondary majority 4-stars. In the case of this one - I think the anticipation had my hopes up too high. I mean, let's review: We "witnessed" Thronos dragging Lanthe off in Demon From the Dark, never to be seen again - until this book. I read DFTD the day it was released, so that occurred four years and four books ago! So when I finally got this one, I all but devoured it in one day. And it is a good book - I have high expectations for her books in general, but after such a long wait, the bar was set pretty high for this one. But Ms. Cole delivers with this series and high expectations are usually rewarded. She always tells a good story and the world-building/plot-driven aspects are always right on target. I know when I read an IAD book the couple will be hot, the plot will go somewhere,...
I've enjoyed almost all of K.C.'s IAD novels (exceptions being: Dacian spin-off Shadow's Claim, Macrieve, and Pleasures of a Dark Prince-took my time reading each which is very rare since I usually read all her books in rapid succession), but I'm disappointed to add Dark Skye to my exception list as well. (Spoilers Here, Look Away If You Will) I had high expectations based on their perceived relationship/personality glimpsed from the beginning of Kiss of a Demon King. I liked Lanthe, the love-lorn sorceress and Thronos, her best friend turned enemy. I was hoping there'd be tension amongst both factions since it was told that they had been centuries-long enemies but the blame seemed only one-sided toward the sanctimonious Vrekeners. I was under the impression that Sorceri were devious, treacherous, and selfish (against others and their very own) beings yet they come out as self-righteous victims. Why? Because they don't hide who they are? You can't tell me that every Sorceri...
I repeat **SPOILERS**
Wow! Just wow! Kresley has actually outdone herself. She's apparently said that this is her best IAD novel.... EVER. I'm not totally on board with that statement (as unfortunately my heart belongs to Mari and Bowen's story!) but by the gods! This book did NOT disappoint! We first met Lanthe and Thronos in book number 7, so their story has been a long time coming. After escaping the Order, and the Island on which they are imprisoned, Throno's FINALLY has Lanthe! For centuries he has hunted her, and now that he has her, he wont be letting go any time soon....
I really shipped Throno's and Lanthe. Watching their story unfold was really special. I liked where Kresley chose to take the direction of their relationship and I also like how fleshed out their time apart as children growing into adults was. It really gave their relationship that extra something. I liked that she chose different for our female...
