    1. Shadow s Claim 3.5 4 stars YES, I VE READ IT A LITTLE EARLY Hey I know what ya ll are thinking How in the world did she already read this There s no way Tai got a arc of THIS What voodoo is she practicing that she obtained this Well, let me tell ya Apparently, my local supermarket does not heed to release dates My mother happened to see this on the shelves, remembered my incessant whining about needing me some KC in my life, and surprised me with it today First I d like to just say, MOM S RULE a [...]


    2. OMG a NEW Series by KC omg now the celebration is over because I hate to say it This romance underwhelms Bettina was quite annoying, she took too long to recognize the good thing she had going with the hero Prince Trehan The plot was a tad formulaic and not enough hot sex scenes eitherThe sylph Salem was hilarious though He was one bright spot in a otherwise bland romance Methinks Ms Cole skimped on writing this romance in order to write her new YA series Arcana Chronicles


    3. She will never be mine, will always want the male before me This is my third time of reading this stunning book TREHAN DACIANO Oh my goodness What can I do for you when you re feeling down because of your love life I can t bare when you re upset and unhappy Your woman is not fair and so unkind to you She doesn t deserve your warrior heart and I have to admit your honesty belongs elsewhere, so no one can hurt you as much as she does Lizvetta nearly decapitated me And look how happy we are My feel [...]


    4. Shadow s Claim is the 13th book in Kresley Cole s ever fabulous Immortals After Dark Series and the 1st in her The Dacians Series Okay, so I am not sure why this book is part of the IAD Seriese only connection to that world is that the main character here , is one of Lothaire s many cousins, the assassin Trehan Daciano who made a very quick appearance at the end of Lothaire s bookTrehan is also the prince of the secret Vampire Realm Dacia, situated in the hell plane of Abbaddon He s been assigne [...]


    5. Prince Trehan Christian Daciano Dacian vampire and Princess Bettina of Abaddon Half demon half sorceress What else did you see of my life She knew he would point out her weakness, her dependency on her guardians, her useless panting after Caspion You view the world differently than I do Of course I do You re a brave warrior I mt You re an artist You see beauty in so much, noting details I never you have seen You gave a sensibility I could only imagine before He parted his lips, then paused for a [...]


    6. Couldn t put it down I seriously love Kresley Cole s writing, and this book is no exception The story was just so easy to read and super fun to follow Even though the whole Realm of Blood and Mist thing is actually kinda off putting if you really try to visualize it, I nevertheless really enjoyed this book and particularly the no nonsense vamp of a hero, Trehan Daciano.Trehan sigh Did someone order a tall, dark, serious, brooding, bookish yet deadly, super intelligent, fights for his woman hero [...]


    7. Ugh.I couldn t stand Caspion and I couldn t STAND Bettina At ALL She was pathetic, whiny, desperate, and unappreciative Trehan was awesome He literally gave up his world for her and all she could talk about was Caspion this and Caspion that as Caspion screwed every whore available I had NO respect for Bettina and I seriously wanted Trehan to just leave her ass behind At 50% through I was bored and frustrated At 75% I was ready to DNF, but barely persevered Aside from Trehan, I couldn t stand any [...]


    8. I hate to say it but I really didn t like this book KC is one of my favorite authors, and I love all her other books, but this oneI just can t The heroine Bettinadrove me nuts Her thought process was annoying and childish and I couldn t understand her obession over Cas Yes, he is her bff but come on, he s a whoring douche bag and she falls behind him like a love sick puppy She was aware of his love of whore houses and was even told the night she tried to get him to take her V card that he didn t [...]


    9. Te odio Kresley, arruinaste mi vida C mo se te ocurre crear otra serie Yo que viv a sufriendo de amor por los Inmortales, y ahora me das a los Dacianos.Declaro a Trehan Daciano EL MEJOR PROTAGONISTA MASCULINO DEL MUNDO.Y ha Bettina LA MUJER M S INUTIL DEL MUNDO l, un pr ncipe de un reino oculto, representando la justicia y la espada en Dacia Un hombre que solo vive por y para el deber Un hombre que AMA LEER Protector de su familia, cari oso, leal, dulce y encantador Rompe con todo lo que conoce, [...]


    10. Vanilla Spice Books BlogThis ll be quick and I ll forgo recounting the plot in length and will dive right into my thoughts It will also be somewhat spoiler ish.With this installment I m all caught up with the Immortal After Dark Series Not sure why I didn t read Shadow s Claim when it was its turn but I think it had something to do with the fact that it strayed from the original series and I figured I could just start it as an independent one Not sure if this helped to see it in a clear light or [...]


    11. I think my love for this author s words are well documented She s definitely one of my faves.How I m still reading a series after how many years now A decade Little over, under I just open up the wallet and send over my ducats to anything remotely IAD related I own the series, or the series owns me Hmm So the Daciansrne from one the best frigging vampires EVER, Lothaire I will forever 3 this evil, diabolical creature And the Dacians, his royal family are intriguing I finally got to this story so [...]


    12. 4 starsI really love when Kresley Cole write about vampires I think her vampires are the best Best than her Lykae and Demon no offense for their fans P Why I said this Imagine that after they reach their immortality, their heart stop beating, all their body function stop working yes, no sex either And then when their mate, called Bride, finally come, she blooded them Make them whole again And from Wroth brothers except, Murdoch maybe , Lothaire and Trehan, all prove themshelves that they are swo [...]


    13. 5 stars Sign me up for a one way ticket to DaciaThere s a reason why I love Kresley Cole s brand of paranormal romance because it s hands down the best It s sexy, smart, fun, sexy, compelling, and just plain sexy and Shadow s Claim was all of that Every paranormal romance author has to build a new world and make up the rules by which players must adhere to things like what it means to be a paranormalian in that world, what defines them, and often who is a mortal enemy of whom Well, KC, IMHO, has [...]


    14. I think this would have been a five star book, but some aspects towards the end spoiled that for me I feel that Bettina s insecurity and her fixation on Caspion sort of ruins the romance a bit I agree with her that it would make her seem fickle if she was totally in love with Cas for years, and then all of a sudden, she s crazy about a vampire she barely knows However, I think Trehan did just about everything he could to prove how much she meant to him He even turned his back on his whole cultur [...]


    15. 4.5 StarsTrehan Christian Daciano.you sir are a force to be reckoned with, and a hot one at that You don t appear to be an afterthought with that one, dearest freakling You appear to be the only thought This isn t really a spinoff, it incorporates many of the same things from the IAD series time lines and the many of the same characters I would say that this should be the book you read directly after Lothaire since the timeline lines up semi concurrently with that.Reasons I totally liked this bo [...]


    16. 5 stars One day you ll convince me that you ll always want him Just before he traced away, he murmured in her ear, Take care, lest you lose a male who ll desire only you and gain a male who ll desire only others I loved everything about this book.cially Trehan Damn, he puts all other vampire book boyfriends to SHAME Sexy, possessive and deadly to othersjust perfect Normally, I hate love trianglesbut with a hero like Trehan, there really is no comparison between him and Caspion


    17. If Kresley Cole wrote it, I ll read it There s no doubt about that.She has come to be one of the authors that I blindly trust to keep me company like a best friend does.So To the question at hand.When is this baby going public


    18. a mask This is a review of the audiobook The swoonworthy Robert Petkoff continues to narrate this wonderful series and, what can I say You know the expression, I d listen to him read the phone book Yup That applies here Astounding ability with multiple accents and voice inflections, creating consistent characters.As far a main characters, I m racking my brain trying to think if I ve ever disliked any of Cole s previous heroines I don t believe so Even Sabine, Sorceress of Illusions, from Kiss of [...]


    19. I m loving the Dacian s Of course the vampires have always been my favorite creatures of all the Lore And I definielty loved that there were no Valkyrie in it other than Nix Can t stand those bitches Looking forward to the other Dacian cousins getting their HEAhopefully I really liked the storyline here where Trehan had to court and fight to win Bettina There was lots of hot sexual tension and gruesome fighting But in the end, I got a little exhausted with it view spoiler I never really feared t [...]


    20. It s the first time I ve ever felt disappointed while reading an IAD book I had to force myself through some parts of the book, how sad is that And I mostly owe it to STUPID, PATHETIC, WIMPY, CHILDISH Bettina How annoying can this chit be, seriously I wanted to slap her so many times Compared to the other IAD heroines, she was so boring She was so weak compared to Elizabeth, and Elizabeth was a human She didn t fight, for anything She totally let Trehan down while he did everything and anything [...]


    21. 3.5 Enjoyed it, but can t say I loved it.Bettina and Trehan s relationship It s complicated Nothing really new in this Lorean mating Bettina loves death demon Caspion Caspion loves to rut Trehan travels to their demon realm to kill Caspion no only a select few Dacians are allowed to leave the Realm of Blood and Mist and are visitors get a welcome to Hotel California Caspion snuck out of the blood realm Meanwhile, Bettina is recovering from a vicious beating with hate crime written all over her n [...]


    22. From Kresley Cole s Facebook page, I d like to announce The Realm of Blood and Mist, my paperback spin off series of the IAD that follows the Dacians those thought to be mythic vampires Book 1 is called SHADOW S CLAIM available for pre order here amzn srRVHs This is my first new series in over five years, and I can t wait to share those sexy, powerful characters with you Perhaps you ll get to know them in LOTHAIRE sooooooooooo EXCITED hehehe D


    23. Bettina, the princess and heir of The Deathly Ones, was attacked, beaten and had her sorceress power stolen Her godparents decided to hold a tournament for contestants to battle for her hand and the kingdom Bettina doesn t want to marry anyone other than the man she s been in love with her whole life, Caspion, and she decides to seduce him Unfortunately, she drinks too much and passes out When she comes to, she thinks Caspion is in her bed Turns out it s Trehan, Prince of Shadows, who has come t [...]


    24. Kresley Cole has a unique way of writing that pulls readers right in until you feel as if you are transferred into one of her books With her unique signature humor and larger than life characters, readers are completely immersed in the Lore of immortals with no intention of leaving I get this feeling every time I read a Kresley Cole book and SHADOW S CLAIM is no exception.Trehan is an exceptional hero Arrogant, deadly and sexy, he possessed all that a woman could want in a leading man For me, he [...]


    25. I love Kresley Cole s writing and the Immortals After Dark series Shadow s Claim isn t really a spin off as much as it is a slight branching of the IAD series to introduce the Dacian characters And I can already see future books from the supporting characters in this story I just hope one of them isn t Caspian, because I didn t like him at all.But back to this book The Dacians are the race of vampires who rejected Lothaire and his mother all those centuries ago, and whom Lothaire swore vengeance [...]


    26. This was read for the Vaginal Fantasy group I enjoyed it, but, like all of this author s books, I feel like the style is a BIT immature The main character, Bettina, annoyed me a bit, but the main dude was a stud and a half, and this was fun enough for romance popcorn reading for sure



    27. Read this review on Got Fiction BooksThis is what KC said about the cover, and wow, do I agree I put in a few cover requests for this one I wanted to have the hero looking like he d just returned from punishing the heroine s enemies, basically a you mess with her, you ll see a man getmean scenario I requested mud on his grim face, a menacing stare that says you re next, stuff exploding in the background, clothes all ripped up And the art department delivered That, my friends, is Trehan Cristian [...]


    28. 3 3.5 stars I m not sure on my rating It s probably because I went in with super low expectations, thinking it d be a disaster, but it wasn t This book didn t annoy me Sure, Bettina did on occasion, but not really Trehan I think what I liked about this book was reading about a new demon kingdom, Bettina s sassy servant, and Morgana, Queen of all Sorceri s apathetic attitude Oh, and there s lots of fighting between many different species Characters Bettina rather obtuse, but that s from her shelt [...]


    29. HOW DID I MESS THIS I don t even know who s book this is, or what s it about I m just thankful to be back in this world YAYY Immortals After Dark for me Man, i m telling you, this series is like crack.
