Loved the book, however, was hoping for more Nix!

I love this series but this book was a little disappointing. Storyline was good but most of the book was erotica (which is fine if that's what the intent was). Historically this series has been plot driven not driven by sex scenes so a lot of skipping ahead took place to find out more about the alliances and ascension. Previous books have had great sex scenes but the story was the star and it was reversed in this installment.

This book is riveting and excruciatingly suspense filled drama from the getgo. From the banishment of a selfish young princess to the tale of destructive primordial king. The battle of the wits between the sexes & the species is so on with these two. You begin to pray they don't take each others heads off during the game. But they learn each others and triumph more in the end than either would've thought imaginable. This book is a definite read for the followers of this series because Kresley Cole weaves stories to a dramatic storylines and happy endings to make any sane person wish they were the characters. Good luck and best of reading to everyone!!!

As always, an amazing read. I love the play on my favorite childhood tale, Beauty and the Beast. This might have been my favorite one yet out of the IAD series.

Wicked Abyss is book 18 in the Immortals After Dark series. I adore this series and couldn't wait to get my hands on this installment when I heard it was inspired by Beauty and the Beast. Add in fairytale retellings to a book and I need it. Kresley Cole books are always on my must get as soon as possible so I was happy to see my library got the audiobook for this one in! Princess Calliope Barbot (aka Lila) was cast out by the fey and working at Disney in the human world when she gets approached by Nix and asked to spy on the hell king, Abyssian Infernas. With no real say in the matter, Lila winds up getting kidnapped and deposited into the hands of Abyssian (aka Sian) before she knows what is going on. While yes, they are mates, Sian is carrying a huge grudge against Lila for something she did in a previous life to him so this isn't exactly a good thing. I was kind of worried he wouldn't be able to get past the betrayal since quite a bit of the book he enjoyed tormenting her and being cruel. I could see the parallels to Beauty and the Beast, and while I'm glad KCole made the story her own, I wasn't a huge fan of Sian and his actions. Lila had so much going against her I felt bad for her a good portion of the novel. I was curious to see if/how they'd be able to put the past behind them and if they would be able to enjoy their mate-hood. After reading these for so long, we're at book 18 now folks, I do have to notice a trend in some of the books in this series. What I'm talking about in several of the novels is the leading lady will get captured and held prisoner by the love interest who doesn't exactly treat her wonderful, yet they grow closer as each page turns and he gets nicer then they wind up falling in love. I'm not a huge fan of the repeat plots but I haven't really been bothered by it too much since the characters, settings and the character's history are quite different. Another thing I noticed and really missed were all the characters we normally see in a slightly bigger role that were basically MIA this installment. I love Nix and the Valkyries and was sad to see them not play a larger part. All in all though, this installment was good and if you're a fan of Paranormal Romance and/or love previous books in this series you'll enjoy this book.

This was so incredibly good!  I think I love Cole’s demon’s the best out of all her characters.  Abyssian being the primordial demon takes the cake.  I mean seriously you can’t get any more badass than that. This is the first of Cole’s books that I have listened to via audiobook.  Robert Petkoff is an excellent narrator and I had no problem immersing myself into this world. This is one of those series that I want to start over from the beginning are read over and over again just so I can revisit everyone and remember all of the nuances going on.  Not only does each book have its own story, there is a larger story as a whole moving along with each book. There are so many characters that have yet to find a mate, and of course, the big one is going to be Nix.  Now with the Morior in play the ascension could go either way. And with Wicked Abyss we get a peek at some possible new matches, I can’t wait to see the Dragons story. As always Cole spun a tale with a spirited, intelligent, quick-witted, and sassy heroine who isn’t going to take crap from her high handed demon.  The banter between the two was terrific.  I loved Lila and she was just what Abyssian needed.  They melted the pages. I am giving Wicked Abyss 5 Boundless Stars, I loved it and I can’t wait for the next story.

I have to say that this book ranks up there almost as high as my favorite of Sweet Ruin! Not quite as good for me just because I absolutely love Jo from Sweet Ruin but Lila was a pretty close second place! I wasn't sure about this one at the start. Sian just seemed to be a giant jerk and Lila seemed to concerned with going "home". But then you see what happened to Sian in the past. And how Lila was thrown basically to the wolves over the actions of her parents. I was still iffy about Sian though because he couldn't seem to move past what happened in his past. He blamed Lila for things she did in a different incarnation, not what she would do in the present. But their interactions together, complete with Lila's snarkiness? I LOVED it!! Lila made the whole book for me! She never lets herself get completely down, she always pushes herself to the next step knowing that she has to in order to survive. And her attitude with people who like to talk down to her is great! And the way Sian brings himself around in the end and redeems himself? It was great! Definitely well worth the read! And the author still manages to tell their story and push the main story ARC for the series along with it!
