book club thursday-clearing off the book shelves


Thanks for stopping by. My name is Cyndi and each week, myself and my two best book friends forever Ann and Karen jointly blog together on Book Club Thursday (BCT). To learn all about BCT please click here

This week we are each reviewing ANY book that is at least six months old (and by that I really mean a book that we have owned for at least that long) for what we call: 

In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole spins a sultry tale of a mighty warrior scarred inside and out and the beguiling sorceress with the power to heal him—or vanquish him forever.

Eternal ObsessionAs a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

Endless YearningLanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.

Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance?With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

I was on a kick with this author and read several of her books in this series back to back. 

There were things I really liked about this book and some stuff I didn't quite care for. Maybe that was because I read so many of the books in this series back to back. 

I still really liked this book- especially the second half, but to be honest the first part didn't grab me right away like Ms. Cole's other books have. 

As a couple,Thronos and Lanthe were not my favorite and I liked Thronos much more than Lanthe. Usually with Ms. Cole's books, I like the fact that her characters are more anti-hero/heroine but for some reason this go round...

Again, I am guessing this was because I read so many of her books back to back. Like the previous novels, you can't just jump in and start here because it's so connected to the series. 

On a positive note, I liked that fact that I sense a new story arc for the future novels (if you've read maybe you know what I mean?)
