#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole makes her audio debut with the first title in her spellbinding Immortals After Dark 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 mate will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted, his army’s new immortal captive, 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 only be slaked by her. Denying him, she escapes, 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 first-hand 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?

After listening to 15 other IAD installments that were narrated by Robert Petkoff, making it through this prequel was an uphill battle. It's my own fault for saving this one for last. Hagan Verret & Simone Fomhar were perfectly capable readers, and Nikolai & Myst's story was good, but definitely not...
Quickie ReviewThis is a book I think I would have loved had I read it instead of listening to it. I didn't care for the narrators, but the story pulled me in. This is definitely a series I can get into.I really liked Nikolai. Even with all the crap Myst put him through he's able to show some comp...
This review was originally posted on Bookish Things & MoreQuickie ReviewNikolai and Myst are both very strong characters. Not only in their strengths and loyalty, but also with their dislike and lust for each other. They are unique and both very much have the whole "alpha" thing going on.This stor...
Warlord Wants ForeverIn this novella we finally learn how the series would have opened if there had been a first book. It was interesting to read about all the Valkeries in this manner since we have learned so much about them individually now. This may be one new readers may want to pass on though. ...
