This will contain, what I deem to be, minor spoilers.

This is my favorite series - absolutely no question. I would rate the majority of the books in this series as 5-stars, with the secondary majority 4-stars. In the case of this one - I think the anticipation had my hopes up too high. I mean, let's review: We "witnessed" Thronos dragging Lanthe off in Demon From the Dark, never to be seen again - until this book. I read DFTD the day it was released, so that occurred four years and four books ago! So when I finally got this one, I all but devoured it in one day. And it is a good book - I have high expectations for her books in general, but after such a long wait, the bar was set pretty high for this one. But Ms. Cole delivers with this series and high expectations are usually rewarded. She always tells a good story and the world-building/plot-driven aspects are always right on target. I know when I read an IAD book the couple will be hot, the plot will go somewhere, and I'll enjoy the ride.

I would have made this four stars, but for the fact that I reread these books all the time - so for sheer rereadability, this one won't be seeing much screen time. I just found it to be lackluster. Not in the same realm as the worst books in the series, but definitely not in the top half of the best books either. I've pinpointed this to a few reasons:

1) The aforementioned wait, with expectations growing too high and many books released since the cliffhanger scene in DFTD.

I’ve been a fan of the entire Immortals After Dark series for years. I’ve read them all and couldn’t wait for this one to come out, and maybe I built it up a little too much in my own mind because this one didn’t wow me like many of the others have.
In true Cole fashion, we are introduced to another bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold, Thronos, and while I love that formula, I found him both endearing and odd. His stilted dialogue began to grate on my nerves, and his self-righteousness went on entirely too long. His imperfection seemed to lie more with the physical and less with the psychological, so his growth didn’t progress as smoothly for me as many of her other heroes. I liked Lanthe’s free spirit and her modern references, but she too just didn’t completely captivate me as Cole’s heroines normally do.
Their journey through the freaky, Alice in Wonderland of torment was, by far, the most interesting part, but it didn’t last long enough for me. I found many other parts a little trite, and Lanthe’s acceptance by his people seemed much too easy.
All that being said, Cole, as always, doesn’t drive the reader insane with too many interruptions of the main love story, and I must admit I devoured the bulk of the novel in a day.

I've enjoyed almost all of K.C.'s IAD novels (exceptions being: Dacian spin-off Shadow's Claim, Macrieve, and Pleasures of a Dark Prince-took my time reading each which is very rare since I usually read all her books in rapid succession), but I'm disappointed to add Dark Skye to my exception list as well.
(Spoilers Here, Look Away If You Will)
I had high expectations based on their perceived relationship/personality glimpsed from the beginning of Kiss of a Demon King. I liked Lanthe, the love-lorn sorceress and Thronos, her best friend turned enemy. I was hoping there'd be tension amongst both factions since it was told that they had been centuries-long enemies but the blame seemed only one-sided toward the sanctimonious Vrekeners. I was under the impression that Sorceri were devious, treacherous, and selfish (against others and their very own) beings yet they come out as self-righteous victims. Why? Because they don't hide who they are? You can't tell me that every Sorceri shied away from Vrekeners in fear? They do have powers, right? Where's the vengeance, the bloodshed? Year long centuries of being hunted would've joined them into an (albeit reluctant) alliance but the Sorceri are too power hungry and willing to steal from their own species that they don't even bother with Vrekeners (Who happen to have a trunk full of Sorceri powers just there for the taking?). Why is there no mention of them attacking any Vrekeners or at least planning an attack (except in self-defense which doesn't even count because then it's expected and accepted).
As for Vrekeners...

Perhaps I had built up too much anticipation for this title, but I was pretty disappointed with Dark Skye. I love the Immortals After Dark series. Some books in the series have been stronger than others, but they overall were of very good quality with unique characters and complex plots not only regarding the characters in that particular book, but also a plot that continued to develop the overarching storyline of the Immortals After Dark series as a whole.

This book felt very formulaic. The characters felt flat, with little to make them overly unique, beyond the physical handicaps of the hero. The characters and plot felt thin, strained, and vaguely pessimistic throughout much of the book before being wrapped up quickly for an easily predicted HEA-type ending. The only truly interesting part of the story was a few guest appearances by some of the characters from prior Immortals books, such as a familiar Valkyrie and several of the Gods/Goddesses.

I thought this was way over-priced, especially considering the lackluster characters and turtle-slow/empty plot.
