#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians: Realm of Blood and Mist, a brand new paranormal romance collection following the royal bloodline of Dacia, a mysterious vampire kingdom within The Lore (Cole's world of mythological creatures in her award-winning Immortals After Dark series).



  • This series is absolutely amazing, and I can't wait for more. I'm also thrilled that Robert is the narrator as it provides a great sense of continuity throughout the series. It's frustrating when narrators are constantly changed. Robert's accents are fantastic, especially when it comes to the female voices. His portrayal of Nix is wonderfully quirky and out there, and his Lykae Scottish accent and Dacian accent are simply irresistible. The British accents, including Cockney, feel incredibly authentic. The story itself is superb, filled with emotional twists and turns. Kresley Cole truly is an awesome author. Normally, I'm not a fan of shy and placid heroines, but I fell in love with Bettina. Despite her godparents' attempts to undermine her, she proved them wrong and achieved what she wanted. This girl has serious potential, and I hope to see this couple again in future books. The chemistry between them is highly entertaining.
  • I'm a huge fan of Kresley Cole and this series in particular. While I did enjoy Trehen's character, I have to admit that I was quite disappointed with Bettina. She came across as weak, spoiled, bratty, and too indecisive for my taste. One thing I love about Kresley's female characters is that they are strong warriors with a touch of vulnerability that still showcases their femininity. However, Bettina didn't quite live up to that expectation. She seemed weak and had a hard time understanding both her own feelings and those of the people she claimed to love. She came across as selfish and naive, which didn't make her a very compelling main character in the Lore.
  • I didn't enjoy the audiobook narration, which may have contributed to my overall annoyance with this book. The characters felt one-dimensional and lacked likability, especially Bettina who I found particularly irritating. The story also felt unnecessarily long, dragging on for what felt like three times its needed length. While there were a few moments of humor that made me chuckle, such as the references to the mundane world like Rocky Horror and Cracker Barrel, they seemed out of place and random. The sylph Salem was the only character I genuinely liked, although he still came across as a bit exaggerated. While there were some steamy scenes, the language used felt too vulgar, and the Dracula-style accent given to Trehan by the narrator was unsettling. Additionally, I'm not a fan of the romance novel clichés used, such as accidental sex and substituting one person for another. Overall, this audiobook left me feeling unimpressed.
  • This audiobook is fantastic from start to finish, perfect for paranormal enthusiasts. It had been on my wish list for a while, but I'm so glad I finally decided to give it a go. I'm a big fan of KC's books, and this one just further exemplifies why I consistently find myself drawn to her work. If you're into the paranormal genre, this is definitely a book worth using a credit on.
