Fans have been waiting ever since the release of MacRieve in July for the announcement of the next Immortals After Dark couple. Now the wait is over and the new couple is Lanthe and Thronos! Here's what Kresley Cole had to say about the project on her Facebook:
Tentative pub date is next spring. You’re going to see how they met and how they came to be enemies (their childhood scenes make me tear up every time I read them). As a whole, be prepared for Sorceri sexiness, Vrekener possessiveness, and cameos from some of your favorite characters.
As for Nïx, she will definitely get her own story, but it'll come toward the end of the series, most likely the very last IAD book (which is nowhere in sight) More news to come!
This couple has been waiting in the wings (pun always intended) for quite some time. We got to know Lanthe in her sister Sabine's book, Kiss of a Demon King and then again while she was held in the Order prison with other Immortals, but now we'll finally have her story. Her hero we've only met and heard about in passing. Thronos is one of the Vrekeners, angelic looking creatures who kill Sorceri (whether they're evil or not) and are their natural enemies. Since Cole is fond of pairing up opposites, it's no surprise that these two are fated for each other. The last we saw of the pair, Thronos was carrying Lanthe out of the Order prison as it was destroyed only to have his, hopefully, wicked ways with her. Thronos is also a scarred hero—both inside and out we can reckon—from Melanthe. This couple might just need a little Lore-style counseling!
What else do you want to know about this new couple? What are you looking forward to most? Look for their book in early 2014.
The IAD news comes after, Kresley Cole's earlier announcment about a super secret project that she's been working on—an erotica series featuring a former prize-fighter-turned-mob-enforcer and the mob boss's long-lost daughter.
Fellow Cole fans, what do you say?
