☆☆ DARK SKYE (Immortals After Dark #14) by KRESLEY COLE: A Rock Chick Fairy Review ☆☆

SYNOPSIS (as seen on Goodreads)

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.


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.


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.


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?


disclaimer : This is a fan fairy's review. This fairy has been an IAD fan from the start... so expect gushing and a lot of elongated words for emphasis. :) 

Epic indeed. 

This is one of the best books in KC's IAD series. 

I admit, I didn't like it at first as I was so impatient for them to be together forever. This book has a slow burn. It needs patience and attention to details. You would love just how persistent Thronos is and just how stubborn Lanthe could be.

These two go to many adventures that you would appreciate just how KC can weave awesome worlds. During those adventures, they rehash all that has happened in the past. They were the best of friends when they were younger, but all the things that happened after makes it hard to reconcile. I hated that Thronos couldn't believe Lanthe at first. He was adamant that his race couldn't do such horrible things that were done to Lanthe and her family. I was glad that Lanthe understood why he couldn't believe it right away. Gradually, they built trust with each other as their attraction to one another grew. 

I like it that they were able to lean on each other again and I love, truly love how Thronos got around to accepting Lanthe's past. That's a scene that is very effective. I can't put it here, or else it'll be full of spoilers, just trust me when I say that it's unforgettable... kind of has a predictable result, but unforgettable nonetheless. 

I also love how Lanthe acclimated to Thronos' world. I wish them all the best!!! Thronos is sooooo cute with Lanthe. The ending is kind of abrupt.. but it's alright with me. I love their story. :) 

What I also LOVE about this is..... errr sorry, I just have to say this because I've been a fan of IAD for the longest time.. finally, finally people... (view spoiler) It's what everyone has been waiting for!!! MYGOSH!!!!
