Top critical review
not the best.
on 11 November 2010
Enjoyed this continuation in the Immortals After Dark saga. There was a lot of action, suspense, betrayal, revenge, plotting and scheming, and sexual tension packed into this 417 page book. The usual humor was good and though Nix and Regin were only in this book briefly--toward the end--they had me laughing.
Kiss of the Demon King takes place at the exact same time as Dark Desires After Dusk. They come together at one point and show a conversation between the two brothers, but from the others perspective. I thought that was neat.
The two main characters, Rydstrom and Sabine were exhausting, at times, in their antics to get back at each other. I kept thinking how can the author incorporate a really powerful, 500 year-old sorceress--with a bad attitude--into the side of "Team Good?" Sabine's character had to grow--a lot. She got on my nerves because she didn't grow fast enough for This Reader, but I saw her changing. She was a b and hard to like. She lied, cheated, stole, killed...most without remorse. Rydstrom was wonderful.
There were some points in the book that had me frustrated, but would have to post a plot spoiler to mention them. I really liked it, but it was not amazing for me
