Malkom Slaine, tormented by his sordid past and racked by vampiric hungers, is pushed to the brink by the green-eyed beauty under his guard. Carrow Graie, hiding her own sorrows, lives only for the next party or prank. Until she meets a tortured warrior worth saving. In order for Malkom and Carrow to survive, he must unleash both the demon and vampire inside him. When Malkom becomes the nightmare his own people feared, will he lose the woman he craves body and soul?

Another amazing story from Kresley Cole about Carrow a partygal witch kidnapped by the Order and blackmailed into luring from Oblivion, a hell dimension Malkom Slain a Vemon sexually abused and forcefully turned into a vampire+demon.
Carrow was forced to follow the Orders orders for the safety and freedom of Ruby, her late cousins 7 year old daughter. Carrow meets Malkom a terrifying beast living in isolation, a "caveman" lifestyle and decides to stay under the protection of the vemon despite her impression of himto survive the other dangers of Oblivion
Malkom having found his mate in Carrow is ever thankful for his fortune after all those years of suffering. The progression of their relationship pass all obstacles from difference of language, personality, lifestyle to Malkoms past and Carrows situation is very touching....
The turn of events from Malkom trying to win Carrow to the opposite adds interest to the story.

I don't consider myself to be a Para-Fan (hey I think I just coined a new phase...not be be confused with paraffin...as in wax), but actually consider myself to be quite a para-newbie. Given the option, paranormal would not be the genre of my choice to read.
Demon From the Dark is my first ever Kresley Cole novel and it certainly won't be my last. Cole's writing is freaking hilarious and yowza the story between Malkom and Carrow was mega-watt, smokin' hot! Malkom's got horns and tat's and strategically placed piercings and he's strong and protective and, and I could go on and on... ohh ya and I'm sure Carrow had a few things going for her as well. What a keeper I picked to read *fans self*. Back list here I come!
So how then did Demon From the Dark get into my TBR pile? I've given it some thought and here is what I came up with.
1. Scorching hot cover art including 6 pack abs and a rockin' hip tat...Yum!
2. Intriguing back cover blurb - I can dig it.
3. Flipping through the book at Hell-Mart I chanced upon a particular passage involving a steamy bath scene and a soft wash cloth.
Ca-Ching...book in basket..checkout here I come...ring me up Scottie!
I'm not going to go into great detail about the book, I just have a few points I want to hi-light showcasing Ms. Cole's witty and funny sense of humor.
Carrow the good-time witch of the coven has been kidnapped and imprisoned by the Evil-doers to capture and lure the Vemon - Malkom Slaine into their clutches for their evil-doing experiments. Here is Carrow's response when she finds out what they expect her to do:
"As much as I appreciate the invitation to help out with your vemon-retrieval problem, I'm afraid I'm going to have to R.S.V.F.U."
OMG R.S.V.F.U.? Are you kidding me? Freaking hilarious!
One prevalent problem throughout the story involves communication. Malkom's native tongue is Demonish...no Anglish. Carrow doesn't speak or understand Demonish. She's strictly a straight up English sorta girl. There were so many funny scenes resulting from the language barrier. Here is one of my favorites.
Carrow to Malkom:
"I should name you Wilson the Volleyball. You understand as much as Wilson did and respond as infrequently. What's that?" She cupped her ear as if the demon had spoken. "No, no your're right, Wilson was more hygienic."
OMG! I think I snorted coffee out my nose reading that one.
Malkom definitely needs a little help when dealing with the ladies. He's about 400 years old and surprise...dude is still a Virgin? Wha???? At one point when trying to impress and woo Carrow, he collects some ghoul heads on pikes and presents them to her as an offering like he's giving her a bouquet of roses. He wouldn't make for good material on any season of The Bachelor. Can't you just picture the final ceremony? "Carrow will you accept this...severed ghoul head?" LOL!
My final funny revolves around Carrow's magical powers and how they are regenerated. She needs happy, positive vibes to increase the power of her own magic. The happier the feelings, the more power she can harness for herself. So because she's been imprisoned and her powers are at an all-time low...a happy Malkom will be a big benefit to Carrow. Here's the passage when Carrow makes this realization:
She'd bet sex with him would make Malkom very satisfied. The demon was turning out to be an unpredictable, feral, bone-and-head-collecting, sexually ravenous happiness battery. She swallowed. All I have to do is plug him in.
Go! Buy! Laugh! Enjoy!
You will not be disappointed.
