Nine hundred years ago, due to a careless act on his part, Rage demon Cadeon Woede caused the fall of an entire kingdom into enemy hands. His royal brother lost his crown. His entire foster family was murdered. And Cadeon has been living with the guilt and itch for revenge ever since. Now, after so many centuries, he's been offered the opportunity to right that wrong. All the demon mercenary has to do is locate the 'Vessel' (a chosen female of Lore who will beget a child who will become a warrior of ultimate evil or good) and hand her over to a wicked sorcerer. In exchange for the female, Cadeon will receive the only weapon capable of defeating his enemy and thus the opportunity to restore the kingdom to its rightful hands. Everyone is counting on him to get this job done and there is nothing Cadeon won't do to complete his task. Only one teensy weensy problem -the female happens to be his predestined mate.

Dark Desires is the fifth (or sixth if you include the anthology) book in the Immortals After Dark series -
Playing Easy to Get
A Hunger Like No Other (The Immortals After Dark Series, Book 1)
No Rest for the Wicked (The Immortals After Dark, Book 2)
Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night (The Immortals After Dark, Book 3)
Dark Needs at Night's Edge (The Immortals After Dark Series, Book 4).

This book can be read as a stand alone. Although I do recommend that you read the entire series just because the other books are just too good to pass up. But a reader starting at this point won't be missing anything and can back track later it they want to.

As far as I'm concerned I absolutely loved this book! Cade is such a delicious demon, a gorgeous ladies man with a heart-stopping grin.

The one and only goal Cade and his brother have is to get Rydstrom back on his thrown and now a simmer of hope is offered. Omort The Deathless is between Rydstrom and his thrown and as his name proclaims, he cannot be killed...until now. As a sword is forged especially for the Woede's to wield that can kill Omort The Deathless, they in return have to find and deliver The Vessel. With every Accession there is a female from The Lore that would come into sexual maturity. Her child would be a warrior of ultimate good or ultimate evil, depending on the side of the father.

Cade is indebted to his brother to get him back on his thrown and when he finds The Vessel, he looks into silvery eyes. The eyes with the color of a Valkyrie awoken. Holly felt the rage flow away as the threat subsided and looked in the eyes of another demon. Cade couldn't believe it, this female...his female... against all odds was one of The Lore! Yet apparently she was also The Vessel and his heart struggled with his honor, how could he give up that which he searched for nine hundred years but nor forgo on his vow to his brother?

Cade has until next full moon to deliver Holly to Groot The Metallurgist and in return get the sword that will kill Omort The Deathless. But can a demon let go of something as precious as his female?

As Kresley Cole let us taste a bit of the Demon world in the previous novels, in DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK she gives it to us all with one of the Woede brothers, Cadeon "The Kingmaker". I was plunged into a fast paces tale almost from page one without the author losing eye for details and background. Though Cade and Holly are hunted by various Factions this story feels very character driven as much revolves around the couple and their problems.

Cadeon is the hottest Demon. The story is full of surprises and kicks, the journey that changes both Cadeon and his beloved is captivating and this series is highly addictive! I read all 6 of them in a week.

I have just finished reading an emotionally draining book and it left me wanting something soft and fluffy. Now ordinarily I would say that Immortals After Dark are far from soft and fluffy, after all the books are about demons etc. and usually involve some fighting. But I needed something that I could sink into without trying, something that was new but felt comfortable (like a well read favourite) and this is what Cole provides for her constant reader. Each story so far is standalone but ties in with the books that have come before and most give us a hint as to what/who to expect in the next book. Which gives me the reader that warm sense of familiarity that I sometimes need in a book.

One of the reasons I am enjoying this series is the variety. We don't just get to meet new characters, we get to meet different 'species' within the Lore, Valkyrie (who are one of my favourites in this series), Vampires, Lykae, Witches, Demons.. and the list goes on.

I loved Holly and her quirks. I also loved watching her unravel. Becoming who she really should be instead of the 'box' she was trying to fit herself into. I also loved the slowly building attraction she has towards Cade. I think Cadeon is the first guy (in a book) with horns that I have lusted over and I for one might take Nix's suggestion and lick them... but I digress... We have seen Cadeon in previous books, but shamefully I must admit that I never really gave him much thought. Until now. Cade starts out as a tough, foul-mouthed demon, hell-bent on helping his brother regain his crown (no that's not a metaphor). And because of that he has some tough choices to make in this book. I personally think he did the best thing possible.

This series is rapidly becoming one of my favourites. This particular book took me just one day to read it because I just couldn't put it down.
