Review

* Non-Spoiler Review*

Kresley Cole is one of my go-to comfort reads when it comes to Paranormal Romance, while she didn’t make my Top 5 for my PNR Series she is still up there. A few months ago I hauled a tonne of Immortals After Dark books from a charity shop, and to say I have almost finished them all is an indication that this series still holds clout for me.

Macrieve is the 14th book in the Immortals After Dark series. The main character is Uilleam Macrieve, a tortured Lykae who is at his witts end. After not exacting vengeance on those who captured him and brutally tortured him, he sees no point in living. That of course is until the daughter of his torturer is put up for auction.

While many of Cole’s books are usually a main character saving the other main character’s soul trope, this one was lacking the usual angst. Our main female lead Chloe is a strong and feisty character, but there is something about her that doesn’t click well for me. Though I appreciate the direction Cole took with the story, it is character development heavy which is normal.

Overall, it was a quick read, shame that the story didn’t hold its own. A good book though to get into the groove for August.
