The terrifying king of hell...
As a boy, Abyssian "Sian" Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster--just as she's been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.
Meets his match.
Princess Calliope "Lila" Barbot's people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for eons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can't remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good.
Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after?
As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast's cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
This was so incredibly good! I think I love Cole’s demon’s the best out of all her characters. Abyssian being the primordial demon takes the cake. I mean seriously you can’t get any more badass than that. This is the first of Cole’s books that I have listened to via audiobook. Robert Petkoff is an excellent narrator and I had no problem immersing myself into this world. This is one of those series that I want to start over from the beginning are read over and over again just so I can revisit everyone and remember all of the nuances going on. Not only does each book have its own story, there is a larger story as a whole moving along with each book. There are so many characters that have yet to find a mate, and of course, the big one is going to be Nix. Now with the Morior in play the ascension could go either way. And with Wicked Abyss we get a peek at some possible new matches, I can’t wait to see the Dragons story. As always Cole spun a tale with a spirited, intelligent, quick-witted, and sassy heroine who isn’t going to take crap from her high handed demon. The banter between the two was terrific. I loved Lila and she was just what Abyssian needed. They melted the pages. I am giving Wicked Abyss 5 Boundless Stars, I loved it and I can’t wait for the next story.
