Product Description

This fairy tale doesn't end with a kiss... A spellbinding Immortals After Dark tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole!

The terrifying king of hell...

As a boy, Abyssian "Sian" Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster--just as she's been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.

Meets his match.

Princess Calliope "Lila" Barbot's people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for eons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can't remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good.

Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after?

As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast's cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war?

A grat addition to the series but I found this couple not quite as heartwrenching and satisfying as some of the previous ones...
Still a great read though.
It was also quite funny and had some pretty hot sex scenes - a bonus in my opinion.
Unlike the disappointment of her recently released novella Shadow's seduction, this book was immaculately edited and a pleasure to read.
Recommended to any fan of the series.
Not a stand alone, however. Too much previous knowledge of the world required with essential characters.
Oh, what i wouldn't give to have only just discovered this series with all those brilliant stories to read for the first time!

I do love kresley Cole's books. Particularly the immortals after dark series. I love the kick arse intelligent heroines, the quirky sense of humour, the alpha males, that no one is truely bad or good. This book has all the things I love about Cole's writing. So I recommend you read it.

So why not 5 stars? Well I've been reading this series for 10 years now and you have to admit there is a fair bit of repetition in these books. I could see all the developments in this story coming. As much as I appreaciate the irony that she inserted a tale where the author is being encouraged to wrap it up, I have to say I agree with the sentiment. I'm a tad annoyed that this is essentially book 2 of 8 of a series within a series. Particularly as only one is being released a year when it was previously 3 a year. There were big characters I was waiting to hear about 10 years ago that seem to have been forgotten and instead the story has gone off on a tangent that will take years and I already have the general gist of their HEA. So please move the main story along. Let's have another Valkyrie book and no more new characters.

So I love the writing and I love the series. But I also hope that it goes out with a bang and I can continue to love it rather than the slow fizzle.

Got the book today and read it non-stop for 5 hours. And boy, was I totally entertained and satisfied - more than glad to have that feeling of satisfaction again with an IAD book which I didn't get with the last 2 ones.

Kresley Cole's Wicked Abyss more than delivered in my personal opinion. The plot, the twists and the characters all had the stamp of Cole's trademark. For me, it was one of the IAD books that I couldn't bear to bring down once I started reading - I just had to know how it will end. Lila's beauty was more than a match for Sian's beast and the glimpse it provided of the other awaited characters were more than welcome. IAD fans would have a field day on this one as it brings a promise of much more to come in the exciting, mystifying and magical world of the Lore.

my my my.. this is one hot and steamy romance.. as usual there are several twists and turns.. and the ever present question of trust.. very similar to Lothaire and Hunger Like No other.. older than time hero with a past trying to win over a youthful and spirited heroine.. but of course we get to the HEA eventually with some explicit romps along the way... hot hot hot !!!

4.5-5 stars

This was a great story and addition to the series. Originally, I was very frustrated about the story being about characters I hadn't heard of before when there were characters I am familiar with that still hadn't gotten their own stories! However, I really liked both Lina and Sian and enjoyed their story greatly so that frustration faded almost immediately once I started reading. :D

Lila is a Elvin princess that is second in line for the ruling line of the Sylvan kingdom. Lila was engaged to the King of the realm but was exiled as a teen when her parents hatched an unadvised coup and got executed for it. Lila lived in the mortal realm for 10 years, waiting to find a way to get back to her home while avoiding the archer that's hunting her bloodline.

Sian is a primordial demon and the ruler of Pandemonium, the hell dimension. Sian's brother was the ruler but he died in the death-match that took place in Shadow's Claim and Sian took the throne. Unfortunately, the primordial demon tends to degrade to a more and more demonish appearance the longer he has the title and with the ascension starting, Sian is already experiencing the change. He isn't looking forward to seeing what he's going to turn into and has been trying to find the cure.

Sian found a mate thousands of years ago (around 10k I think?) who was a fairy princess. Unfortunately, she was prejudiced against demons and never took his courtship seriously, only using his feelings to find out secrets about his land so her people could attack. She married another and died in childbirth and Sian was left hating her and feeling empty for many millennia. Sian found out that his mate had been reincarnated in current time but he was too caught up in old hatreds to see this as an opportunity for anything other than revenge for what the first incarnation of his mate did to him. He put a bounty out on her head so he could have her in his power to take out his revenge.

Lila was visited right before she was captured by mercenaries (hired by Sian) and was offered a deal that could get her exile ended and restore her position. Unfortunately, the situation Lila expected wasn't what she ended up in and things changed almost immediately leaving Lila adrift and only able to trust herself. Once Lila is in his grasp, Sian takes the opportunity to start taking his revenge but it seems a bit hollow when Lila has no memory of her past life. Also, Lila doesn't have any problem with striking back at Sian with her formidable anger and wit...something Sian isn't used to at all and something that he finds he likes. There's some back and forth as Sian and Lila bash heads, test each other out and find common ground. There's a definite attraction between them but Sian being caught up in the past and things Lila's past-self did makes their growing relationship hard at times...especially when Sian has a big bout of relationship stupidity at a very sensitive time (I really loved Lila's revenge...hilarious!). Thankfully, Sian and Lila do make up and things work out nicely so they end the story with a very satisfying HEA together.

I enjoyed this story greatly. I loved Lila as the heroine. She was smart and gutsy, choosing intelligence and wit as her weapons and wielding them well. Sian was a good hero. He was a bit too caught up in the past but once he was willing to let that go, I really started to like him. The story was pretty much what I expected but it was really well written, the characters were great and it kept me totally engaged until the end so I'd definitely recommend it. :D

* note - I listened to the audio version of this story and the narrator did a great job.

In Wicked Abyss the build up to the Ascension continues. The Sylvan Fey and Pandemonia are at the centre of this instalment. Another step towards the Ascension.

Abyssian, known as Sian is the King of Hell. He is going through a physical transformation, turning him into a beast. It's a curse for which he has yet to find the solution. Besides ruling his Kingdom, he is hellbent on revenge for having his heart broken a millenia ago.

Calliope, Lina to her friends is a Sylvan Fey who is betrothed to Saetth, the Fey King until she is accused of treason against the crown and banished to earth.

Lina is adapting very well to be her new life and still hoping to go back to her beloved Sylvan. She hasn't heard a word from Saetth during these thirteen years and he turns up out of the blues. Hope blooms inside Lina, thinking that at long last she can go home but Saetth sends her on a mission impossible. At least that’s what he thinks!

Sian has heard that Lina is the reincarnation of the one who betrayed him and sets about getting his revenge. She is abducted and is now in hell where he intends to put her through well... hell. Literally! She doesn't remember anything about her previous life and therefore oblivious to the reasons for her harsh punishment. He is so blinded by his revenge that he doesn't listen to her or see beyond what's in front of him.

He soon realises that she is not just a "wallflower"! She does her best to thwart his plans despite being at an extreme disadvantage. Her efforts soon piques his interest and he wants to see how far she will go. He is only fooling himself as he is just as enamoured now as he was all those years ago. When he makes an effort to go easier on her, he is surprised at her reaction. They are both surprised! They start to get along but the secrets and lies are always looming at the back of their minds. Aaand, these inadvertently resurface and all their chances are blown to hell! Can Sian forget about the past and start anew? Will Lina be able to forgive and forget?

This instalment doesn't disappoint. It's a sheer delight. The chemistry between Sian and Lina is off the charts. There are some frustrating moments and some laugh out loud ones. Their battle of wits is something else. The sex is explicit and the myriad of emotions is quite palpable. Wicked Abyss is as captivating and compelling as the other books in the series. I can't wait to see whose story will be be next. I am also keen to see the further developments towards this impending battle as it's also one of my favourite series.
