I love the world that Ms. Cole has created in her Immortals After Dark series. This is yet another amazing book! And it is #5 within the series. I don't think Ms. Cole has lost her touch at all. Sometimes, long series can become flat, boring, lose their luster overall. Not this one!
I think this is my favorite of the series. I really enjoyed the main characters and I felt they complement each other very well. Plus, I have a thing for the real bad boys - the ones everyone believes can't be saved and Conrad is just right of me.
Néomi is wonderful! After years of being a ghost, she still possess all her gumption. She is a forward woman (especially from the time she came from, the 1920s) and she speaks her mind. I have to say, she is one of my favorite female leads. I must admit, in the beginning I was wondering how a ghost and a crazed vampire could end up together...You all will have to read it to find out for yourselves.
