With Demon from the Dark
the reader is in for a treat of his life. I truly think Kresley Cole outdid herself with this one. The story is beautifully written and very touching. All of the factors - the plot line, characters, effect and interactions - I expect from a great book are executed perfectly. So much that while reading it didn't even cross my mind to analyze or critique anything. I was simply engulfed into the story I absolutely loved. Demon from the Dark
was one of the books I most anxiously waited for. Not because of the characters, I mind you, but of the opportunity to learn what happened after a number of Lore Immortals were captured in the end of the previous book. And in a small corner of my mind I prayed that there wouldn't be some mortal faction involved (hate when humans are involved). My prayers were unheard, but I do not regret it for a second. The author made it work and made it good.
And the characters I wasn't necessary anxious about (because I didn't know one and the other didn't impress me much), were true heroes whom I absolutely fell in love with. The slow progress of relationship between Malkom and Carrow, the peaks and lows figuring how to trust each other, communicate with a language barrier, was moving.
Such untypical situations as the heroes not being able to communicate, or touch on some perfectly normal yet deliberate reason I associate with Kresley Cole's writing. And I love the way it is put together and solved. Sometimes even the most obvious things come as surprise and surprise was what Demon from the Dark
most definitely managed to accomplish. Even though I expected a good read.
The book has truly heartbreaking moments, deep feelings, sacrifices, dangerous turns and an escalating need for more of the intricate world of Immortals After Dark
series, it can't be denied. I only hope the next book would come soon, because while the secondary characters do give an extra flavor, it also gifts with a desperate craving for another story.
In short, Demon from the Dark
is a keeper and you'll regret it if you won't try!
