This fairy tale doesn’t end with a kiss… A spellbinding Immortals After Dark tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole!

The terrifying king of hell...

As a boy, Abyssian “Sian” Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster—just as she’s been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.

Meets his match.

Princess Calliope “Lila” Barbot’s people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for aeons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can’t remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good.

Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after?

As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast’s cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war? 

Immortals After Dark is one of the first PNR series that got me hooked on reading tons of other PNR books, I have truly loved reading this series over the years.
 I wanted to love this book just as much as the others, but it just fell short for me and it took me just a little over a month to finish the book. I didn’t mind that the characters were new or the whole seemed like beauty and the beast thing going on, the book just wasn’t as exciting to me as the previous books. It took me a few hundred pages after the middle for it to get exciting for me and still it wasn’t like the others.

The upside is the hell world. The setting is full of magical animals and plants that will have you on the edge wanting to know more about the world.  
I know others will like this one more than I did so I would never discourage anyone to not try it, the books is good just not as good as the others in the series to me, but again you never can expect every book to be your favorite.

I’ll be looking forward to the next book in the series.
