Kiss of a Demon King review

Kiss of a Demon King (Immortals After Dark, #7)
From New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes this spellbinding story of a demon king trapped by an enchantress for her wanton purposes -- and the scorching aftermath that follows when he turns the tables and claims her as his captive.
HIS OBSESSION...Sabine, Sorceress of Illusions: the evil beauty who surrenders her body, but not her heart.
HER DOWNFALL... Rydstrom Woede: the ruthless warrior who vows to keep her at all costs.
THEY WERE NEVER SUPPOSED TO WANT EACH OTHER THIS MUCH... With each smoldering encounter, their shared hunger only increases. If they can defeat the sinister enemy that stands between them, will Sabine make the ultimate sacrifice for her demon? Or will the proud king lay down his crown and arms to save his sorceress?


Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

Kiss of a Demon king takes place at the same time as Cadeon's story Dark Desires After Dusk. I was so glad that we got Rydstroms story right after, because there were aspects of Cadeon's story I wanted to see more of and not have them gloss over..

I call this series of books my warm and fluffy, not because they are lacking in someway, but because this world has been so well written that when you pick up the book, even when it features a new character you are immediately surround by that 'warm hug from an old friend' feeling. That feeling that helps you slip into the pages with ease and forget the world going on around you.

Rydstrom was such a great character to read.. torn between what he wanted and what he felt was right. Willing to sacrifice his own happiness, his own female so that he could try and regain his crown to help his people. And then when he had the chance to spend time with his female we find out that the good kind king wanted something a little spicier from his female than placid and compliant. Oh how well Sabine was made for him... and he for her. I will probably say this every single time, but i think Sabine and Rydstrom are my new favourite couple. They are just so perfect for each other, a perfect balance of kind and wicked.

And Nix.. oh Nucking Futs Nix how I love this Valkyrie. I really hope she continues to be in every book. And I cant wait until she has a full book of her own.
