Dark Skye (Immortals After Dark #14) by Kresley Cole

In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Darkseries, #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.


As 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.


Lanthe, 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.


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?

My review:
Well worth the wait.  You would think that after 14 or 15 novels in a series it might get old but I am here to tell you that this series just keeps getting better and better.
This is a love conquers all story.  Thronos recognizes Lanthe as his mate when they are both children.  Even though their families are each on opposite sides of a war they become secret best friends until the fateful day when his parents kill hers and her sister kills his father.  Feeling betrayed Lanthe uses her sorcery to cause grievous lifelong harm to Thanos.  He has been searching for her ever since.  He isn’t sure if it is for vengeance or to claim her.
Lanthe has been on the run for 500 years but it appears her time has run out when she escapes one prison only to be capture by the boy now full grown who broke her heart.  They are forced to run and fight together.  Can they get past their differences to survive?  Can time heal a broken heart?
Kresley Cole never fails to enthrall us and bring us fully into the fantasy world of her Immortals After Dark.
