Eternal Obsession
As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

Endless YearningLanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.

Can the heat of desire burn brighter than vengeance?
With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

My Thoughts:
Can this really be #14? It seems like just yesterday I was reading the first book in this series. I mostly listened to this book on audio, but I did switch to the ebook from time to time. If you haven't listened to the audio books in this series it's a MUST. Robert Petkoff is an amazing narrator. He does an wonderful job with this series. I cannot recommend him enough! 

I have been anticipating this book for awhile. We've learned a bit about Lanthe and Thronos in some of the earlier books, but Dark Skye is where we get the full story. And really, a lot of their story is brought about by misunderstandings. However the fun in their story happens when they actually start communicating. I really liked their story. It's basically about two really different people (immortals) looking past their differences and what they think they know to be true, to find that they have a lot more in common than they think. 

I love that their story started when they were children. And how after all the crap they both had been through, there was still love. Also, I love the way that Nix always has an ace up her sleeve and meddles whether it's needed or not. I would love to know Nix's story. I definitely like this book more than I did the last one, and I look forward to the next one!
