Pequena biografia
Kresley Cole was graduate student in English and a former world-ranked competitive athlete. While she was working on her Masters degree, she spent a great deal of time doing research in the library. That research eventually appeared in her manuscripts. Her first romance novel was published in 2003, and since then, she has continued to publish historical and fantasy romances, and has seen her releases translated into more than eighteen foreign languages and been on the New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. In 2007, she won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King. In 2010, Kiss of a Demon King earned Kresley her second RITA award. 2011 brought Cole her second #1 NYT bestseller with Dreams of a Dark Warrior.

She lives in Florida with her husband and far, far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Queensland area of Australia.

IMO this book is a much-needed improvement from the previous book (A Hunger Like No Other). I enjoyed the world-building more in this book and also the main characters were interesting and had depth. I look forward to the next!

Ok - so this premise had some great components AND I like Court but I found Anna tiresome.
I keep reading Kresley Cole books hoping one will finally hook me in but I seem to be the outlier in all of my reading groups lol

I think her books have all the potential but they have the tendency to make me avoid reading.
I have the next book in this series - which I plan to read - but if that's a miss for me then I'm going to move on from KC and be happy for the folks that continue to enjoy her works.… (mais)

It's a miss for me - I started skimming about 20% in and was only interested in reading about Lothaire.

Probably my favorite IAD book and my favorite character in the IAD universe. Her vampire stories are so much more enjoyable than any of the other Lore species. Although, I gotta be honest, Kresley Cole's writing is not good (for me - I've tried to read Cole's books in other genres, and her writing grates terribly). I started reading some of these later IAD books because I wanted to read Lothaire (my favorite bisexual Aquarius - a bi-quarius or Aqua-bi if you will - besides James Dean . . . how I came to these conclusions are not up for debate, but it's all there in the text!) and now that I have finally read his book, I am ready to move on from the series. I have a few more books from the series that I will probably skim through; I think IAD and Cole just aren't for me.… (mais)
