Summary

The Warlord Wants Forever...the sensually charged novella that started it all, now with an exclusive excerpt from MacRieve!

In this scorching series opener, New York Times best seller Kresley Cole introduces the captivating Immortals After Dark series. The book also includes an exclusive extended excerpt from MacRieve, the highly anticipated next installment in the series.

The Warlord

Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his bride, the one woman who can "blood" him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body - and soul.

The Seductress

Famed throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, Myst has devoted her life to protecting a magical jewel and to fighting the vampires.

Wroth provides her with the perfect opportunity to torment her sworn enemy - for with his new heartbeat comes a consuming sexual desire that can be slaked only by her. Denying him, she flees, struggling to forget his searing, possessive kiss.

The Hunt is on

She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen her enchanted jewel, giving him absolute power over her. Now that she's his for the taking, he intends to make her experience firsthand the agonizing, unending lust she subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Nikolai realizes he wants far more than vengeance from Myst and frees her, will she come back to him?

Not my cup of tea!

For me this was a bit of a struggle to finish. I didn't find the story line engaging at all and pretty disliked both lead characters.

A+++++ For Narration and Story

Having really gone off reading paranormal romance I wasn’t sure if I would get into this one. I read paranormal about ten years ago, and struggle to read them now, my main reading likes being contemporary.

I was really surprised. I loved the story, and the characters Mist and Roth were fantastic. I especially loved Roth’s voice. The narrator did a wonderful job. Will definitely be listening to the rest in the series.

Good Prequel for the Immortals After Dark Series.

Tales of Valkyries, Vampires and ghouls . This is a prequel to the series 'Immortal After Dark'.
It tells the story of Myst and Nikolai Wroth which is an important relationship in later books. Powerful story as always with a good narration by Robert Petkoff.
Parts of this and later books in the series can be sexually graphic so if you don't like that sort of thing don't read it. For me it doesn't matter either way but I do prefer attentive kind love.

Only content is sex

This was totally boring book, sex was it's only content. So if you are after a good fantasy story, skip this one. I was still waiting when the book will really start, when it ended. Narrator made the story even worse, but who could even read something like this aloud without it sounding ridiculous.

Loved it

This was my first audio book...

Loved it and the enemies to lovers trope suited it very well really liked Mist as a character. I can deffentily see why so many people like this series after listening to this. The narrator did a great voice for Roth too which made the audio book more enjoyable.

Robert Petkoff made me buy it

Love all the IAD series, but had skipped this one. So glad they remade the audible with R.P. Great story and makes me want to start over with the rest of the series. Noticed audible doesn't seem to have pre order on upcoming releases, hope the will consider giving us that to look forward to (as long as R.P. is the narrator).

NOT For Me

Any additional comments?

I have loved almost all of the books in this series> The Immortals After Dark. However, this short story was a big NO for me. I'll sum it up nice and short.I don't like to read about rape or slavery. No, no, no, nope.

Much better with Robert Petkoff narrating

Love all Kresley Coles books... glad they re-released this book with Petkoff. He did a great job with the rest of this series. He brings the books to life!
Wish this book had been longer!

nope

narrator has a sexy voice. but I don't like forced sex. I won't read anymore like this, and reviews of the next book in the series is similar.

Loved it even more with Robert at the helm.

Robert brings something more to yhe table. I had already fell in love with Mist and Roth. To have theire story brought to life with the voice of the series just made it that much more.

Wonderful new beginning

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it is a revamped version of the original but most importantly because it now has the right narrator! Robert Petkoff was meant to be the narrator of this entire series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Myst--it was like getting to meet her all over again.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, It was just as phenomenal as the other IAD books he has narrated.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did.

Any additional comments?

So many Easter eggs dispersed in this that give hints as to what is to come in the series. Great new beginning.

Not my flavor

I honestly didnt finish this book. What bugged me most, and what I really couldnt get past, was the dub-con. Dubious Consent. There was no obvious indication that she wanted him to f**k her. She never said 'yes' and maybe that's just how the story was supposed to go, but it left a sour taste in my mouth. I tried finishing it, but decided to end my discomfort
