An immortal assassin is caught between desire and duty in this sizzling novel from Kresley Cole’s #1 New York Times bestselling Immortals After Dark series.

A foundling raised in a world of humans
Growing up, Josephine didn’t know who or what she was—just that she was an outcast with strange powers. Protecting her baby brother became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo’s transition from would-be superhero…to enchanting villain.

A lethally sensual enforcer on a mission
Archer Rune the Baneblood never fails to eliminate his target. In his sights: the oldest living Valkyrie. Yet before he strikes, a vampiric creature pierces him with aching pleasure, stealing his forbidden blood—and jeopardizing his brethren’s secrets.

A boundless passion that will lead to sweet ruin…
Could this exquisite female be a spy sent by the very Valkyrie he hunts? When Jo betrays the identity of the one man she will die to protect, she and Rune become locked in a treacherous battle of wills that pits ultimate loyalty against unbridled lust.

    This was by far Ms. Cole's best book in the series. I like how she adapted things from multiple other authors and combined it into this exciting and interesting novel.

    Absolutely loved this installment of IAD. If you haven't read them, my God what are you waiting for?? Kresely Cole is brilliant. I loved the heroine,Jo, in this story. She'll be one of my faves from now on. Rune was amazing as well, but more unsure of himself than she was. Loved how they grew together. Not a lot of visits from past IAD'ers, but that's ok because we got a peek at some new players in the game. I love being on this ride to see where Ms. Cole's mind will take us. Eagerly waiting to see what happens next.

    Absolutely love Kresley Cole. She my favorite author. I love how she can create all these characters and they are all completely different and so are their stories. She is so talented and she just keeps on getting better!
  • Wow

    By Mzldysth1
    This book is a definite departure from more recent IAD books. this one definitely sets the stage for a new and improved IAD-the Morrias or whatever they are called. Primordials bigger, stronger, faster, handsomer(is that a word?), sexier and definitely more Alpha. Ms. Cole, I would love to read more about this new group of Immortals.
  • KC is da bomb!
