Dark Skye by Kresley Cole (Book Review)


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?

I’ve been a fan of the IAD series since I read A Hunger Like No Other
Kresley can write a scene where you feel immersed in the battle with the hero and heroine. However with that said, I found the first half of this installment slower than the other fourteen. Around the midway point, Nix showed up and things got interesting. Gotta love that  soothsayer, she knows how to breathe life into a situation. 
Despite my ‘eh’ feelings for the first couple hundred pages, I did enjoy Thronos and Lanthe’s story. There was passion, sweet moments, scenes filled with anguish and of course a HEA. Everything synonymous with a Kresley story.
