A human monster huntress. An immortal werewolf. Could any passion be more forbidden?
The next stand-alone installment in the electrifying Immortals After Dark series by #1 New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole. Venture deeper into the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals—if you dare. . . .
TORMENTED IN UNIMAGINABLE WAYS
Coming off torture at the hands of his warlock captors, Munro MacRieve never expected to find his mate, or to lose her just as abruptly. Driven to desperation, the ruthless warrior uses his enemies’ own powers to reunite with her—in the distant past.
STOLEN FROM HER TIME
When a crazed werewolf crashes her wedding, Kereny “Ren” Codrina does what any cunning huntress would do: she captures him. Yet she finds herself softening toward the wounded beast—until he turns the tables and forces her into an incomprehensible future.
CAN A HUMAN AND AN IMMORTAL UNITE IN ORDER TO SURVIVE?
As danger mounts, Munro will do anything to make her undying, even sell his soul to an evil sorceress. But first he must convince his fiery mate that she belongs with him. If seduction means her survival, Munro will use every weapon in his arsenal to possess her—forever.
Munro MacRieve never expected to find his mate while being held captive by a powerful warlock. After trying to get Munro to fully let his beast out, Jels the warlock finds Kereny and brings her through time to get control over Munro. Munro has been searching for his mate for centuries. A Lykae’s need to find their mate is a very powerful force. Which makes it so much worse when Jels brings Kereny to him when he can’t protect her. To his horror, he watches his mate die before his eyes. To say Munro was devastated would be an understatement. He doesn’t have time to mourn for his lost mate because he is now under the control of the warlocks.
Although he’s being controlled by Jels, Munro’s thoughts are his own. He comes to the realization that if Jels can go back in time, he can get Munro back to Kereny’s time. He just has to figure out a way to break the hold the warlocks have on him. Kereny is nothing like Munro expected, yet everything he hoped for. The only thing that doesn’t work for Munro is that she’s mortal. Life in the Lore is no joke and a human just doesn’t belong.
I have mixed feelings about this book. I have to admit that I wasn’t really happy with Munro as a hero for about 50-60% of the book. Munro was determined to make Kereny mortal, no matter what her thoughts were on the matter. It drove me crazy for over half the book, until he finally listened to what she was saying and made the ultimate sacrifice. It really fixed everything and made me enjoy the rest of the book. I’ve been a long-time fan of the Immortals After Dark series. I started the series when only three of the books were released. So it’s been a long, long, long time since I started this series.
Overall, this was a good installment in the series. I’m really hoping she moves the Accession along because it’s getting dragged on and on. I don’t even remember when it started but it seems like it’s been 20 years or something.
Rating: 3.75 out of 5.
