Book Description

In this pulse-pounding Immortals After Dark tale, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole delves into the darkest mysteries and deepest passions of Clan MacRieve…

A BEAST IN TORMENT
Uilleam MacRieve believed he’d laid to rest the ghosts of his boyhood. But when a brutal torture revives those ancient agonies and destroys his Lykae instinct, the proud Scot craves the oblivion of death. Until he finds her—a young human so full of spirit and courage that she pulls him back from the brink.

A BEAUTY IN CHAINS
Seized for the auction block, Chloe Todd is forced to enter a terrifying new world of monsters and lore as a bound slave. When offered up to creatures of the dark, she fears she won’t last the night. Until she’s claimed by him—a wicked immortal with heartbreaking eyes, whose touch sets her blood on fire.

A FULL MOON ON THE RISE
With enemies circling, MacRieve spirits Chloe away to the isolated Highland keep of his youth. But once he takes her to his bed, his sensual mate becomes something more than human, evoking his savage past and testing his sanity. On the cusp of the full moon, can he conquer his worst nightmare to save Chloe…from himself?

2.0 out of 5 stars Emotional torture July 6, 2013
Format:Hardcover
First off, I LOVE Cole's IAD series and as a fan of her writing style, 'MacRieve' draws you in. The problem is that once you're drawn in, the experience is an angst-ridden mess you can't escape with much satisfaction. Too much internal torment, not enough external action, to the point the extreme angst causes the story to collapse in on itself.

***SPOILERS***

The prologue introduces the internal tension by revealing MacRieve's traumatic history as a child molested by a succubus, resulting in the deaths of his parents. Cue nine centuries of MacRieve suffering psychologically to the point that he can't have sex without his wolf taking over.

Now, you'd think this tragedy would result in a great drama, right? But the story fails to draw it out in a satisfactory way. There are no antagonists in the book, nothing external to distract -- or rather DRAW OUT -- this internal torture MacRieve carries around inside him. As a result, all that angst gets heaped down on his mate, Chloe, taking a strong, self-reliant badass to the breaking point after stripping her of her family, friends, her life's work as a professional Olympic hopeful, her self-respect and even stripping her of her most basic sense of self as a human being when she transforms into a succubus.

Basically, this is the plot: MacRieve's been self-flagellating for nine centuries until he's mated to a succubus who becomes the external target for his pain and rage. Cue his mate becoming the driving force to ~heal~ MacRieve by suffering his abuse until he wakes up and realizes he needs to let go and move past his trauma since torturing his mate to the point that she views suicide as a viable option... well, it goes against his Instinct when it comes to how a Lykae treats his fated love.

By April M
Format:Hardcover
I only wish my title was a joke, but sadly it is the actual "plot" device utilized in this story. Oh, how the mighty Kresley Cole has fallen!

Don't get me wrong; I have long been one of Ms. Cole's most ardent champions. I've turned many a friend and stranger onto her books because I believe (and still hold out hope) that she is unrivaled in the romance genre. I have read and re-read all of her books multiple times, but this one? One time through was too many for me.

You might think it is because I found the inclusion of Will's childhood abuse distasteful, or that I just didn't connect with the foul-mouthed, trash-talking Chloe, but no. It was the utter and absolute lack of identifiable plot and the same old I-hate-what-you-are-but-am-compelled-by-a-mystical-force-to-mate-with-you formula that Kresley Cole usually does so well. It has never struck me as formulaic before now because her other stories are carried by ACTION (aka "plot"), and not just the between-the-sheets kind. Sex has always been a part of her stories, but not the ONLY part. Will and Chloe's story read more like a badly acted skin flick screenplay than an IAD installment. Ms. Cole may have jumped the shark into Gena Showalter (pre-conversion) territory with this one. One wonders if it might not be time for her to put down the proverbial pen for a well-deserved hiatus so that she can find inspiration and joy in her craft again. It read just like a writer on deadline with a note from the editor: MOAR SEXXX!!!!.

Is there anything redeeming about the story? A few things. Besides the new characters, and our favorite recurring ones, we get a glimpse into Munro's future. (Fingers crossed on that one.) But all in all, it feels bereft of the signature charm and humor of Kresley Cole's other work.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars July 2, 2013
Format:Hardcover
MacRieve deals with some intense issues, child molestation, raging beasts and, most recently, torture involving taking out his still beating heart as well as the rest of his organs. Is it any wonder that he's a bit off-kilter? Chloe, on the other, hand seems to have her life together. She's a star soccer player and has even been asked to be on the U.S. team for the Olympics. She has a loving father and knows what she wants and how to accomplish her goals. That all changes the night her father gives her a book about Lore creatures then disappears. Chloe can feel changes occurring inside her, then she's abducted and is introduced to the Lorean world by being the featured prize auctioned off by the House of Witches.

This book was more tame on the violence and action compared with the last few IAD books. Kresley has dedicated major page time to the healing of both MacRieve and Chloe, as well as their new-found relationship. In the beginning I fell in love with Chloe because she's just an awesome heroine. She takes everything in stride and "rubs dirt" on anything that is painful or hurting. MacRieve, on the other hand, was so abused and tormented yet strong. He's like the ultimate tortured hero (well, maybe Lothaire is, but MacRieve is close second). While I missed the adventure and action my favorite IAD books had (Pleasures of a Dark Prince, Kiss of a Demon King and Demon from the Dark), I still enjoyed learning about MacRieve's past as well as Chloe's spitfire personality. She gave MacRieve attitude. She gave no ground, and he loved her all the more for it.

I love that all of Kresley's heroes and heroines are different. I mean, this is the 13th IAD book, and MacRieve is completely different from Lachlain or Bowen, even though all three found mates in species they despised.

I have thought the same thing so many times!!! A digital copy SHOULD come with the hardback version. I don't mind paying the price for a physical book, but it just seems crazy to charge almost the same price for the digital version too! ;\

MacRieve (Immortals After Dark)
This book is not three books. It is one book about Ulliam Macrieve. "A Full Moon on the Rise" is just a description of the book.
