Review: Demon From The Dark by. Kresley Cole

Heidi Cheramie
Review: Demon From The Dark
Author: Kresley Cole

Demon from the Dark (Immortals After Dark Series, Book 8)


I must confess Kresley Cole’s The Immortals After Dark Series is my favorite paranormal series ever! I adore these books. Her women are super tough and the men are HOT! Lots of action, violent fights, sultry, steamy love scenes, modern humor and wit, and tender sweet emotions. These novels are well written with intricate plots that are building to the Accession. An all out apocalyptic war of immortals. This is a world full of incredible mystical creatures, demons, vampires, ghosts, witches, valkyrie. You never know what you are going to find in a Kresley Cole book

Demon From The Dark is her newest book. It is the story of Malkom Slaine. A demon that is poisoned by vampire blood and is now a Scarba, also known as a Vemon. They are the strongest of sentiant beings but are considered abominations by most other immortals. Malkolm is the most tortured hero I have ever read. He has a very sordid, abusive past that many might find hard to read. Can he overcome this past?

Carrow Graie is a witch. A very powerful witch that readers of the IAD series know well as the frivolous, party girl. Carrow is arrested for disorderly conduct and spending another night in the Orleans Parish Jail when she is abducted with several other immortal beings. She wakes up to find a collar on her neck that makes it impossible for her to use her magic. She is imprisoned with other immortals on a cloaked island that is hidden from the world. They are tortured and experimented upon. Carrow is told she can win her freedom if she brings her kidnappers, Malkom Slaine from Oblivion, a demon hell plane.

When Carrow first meets Malkolm they can’t communicate. He speaks Demonish and she speaks English. How they communicate with each other was great fun. It reminded me of Jane meeting Tarzan for the first time. It just shows how wonderful Kresley Cole writes that she makes these scenes so exciting and alive though the two main characters cannot speak the same language.

Carrow and Malkolm’s love story is beautifully written and their relationship to a little seven year old cutie named Ruby is tender and sweet. Ruby is Carrow’s adorable witch cousin that they must protect and save from the island. The action is exciting and the fight scenes brutal. It keeps you on the edge of your seat rooting for these wonderful, complex characters.

Demon From the Dark sets up several exciting books in the future. Many of IAD’s favorite secondary characters are still trapped on the island of HELL! I can’t wait for Kresley’s next book!! I give Demon From The Dark **** 4 1/2 STARS!!!! Fantastic book! Happy Reading!
