Today, Heroes and Heartbreakers is thrilled to share Kresley Cole's Dark Skye. Readers will finally get the long-awaited story of Lanthe and Thronos. On Kresley's Facebook page today, she shared that she had wanted to have “groovy colors (purple and green) and a gorgeous mode—uh, a gorgeous *backdrop*! Oh, and lightning for wings And they delivered!” We think so, too! Here's the cover blurb:
In this highly anticipated fifteenth novel in the Immortals After Dark series, #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, Lord 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.
Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance?
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?
To us, this sounds like a classic Romeo and Juliet story, but with Cole at the helm, we have a feeling it won't be ending quite so tragically! What do you think of the cover? Dark Skye comes out August 5, 2014.
