I am fairly new to the world of the Immortals After Dark, but I had a fair idea of what to expect from the latest installment, Munro, and it did not disappoint. Although this is the nineteenth book in the series, it can stand on its own. I do plan to go back and read the remaining books in the series.

The next stand-alone installment in the electrifying Immortals After Dark series by #1 New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole. Venture deeper into the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals—if you dare. . . .
TORMENTED IN UNIMAGINABLE WAYS
Coming off torture at the hands of his warlock captors, Munro MacRieve never expected to find his mate, or to lose her just as abruptly. Driven to desperation, the ruthless warrior uses his enemies’ own powers to reunite with her—in the distant past.
STOLEN FROM HER TIME
When a crazed werewolf crashes her wedding, Kereny “Ren” Codrina does what any cunning huntress would do: she captures him. Yet she finds herself softening toward the wounded beast—until he turns the tables and forces her into an incomprehensible future.
CAN A HUMAN AND AN IMMORTAL UNITE IN ORDER TO SURVIVE?
As danger mounts, Munro will do anything to make her undying, even sell his soul to an evil sorceress. But first he must convince his fiery mate that she belongs with him. If seduction means her survival, Munro will use every weapon in his arsenal to possess her—forever.

It’s my understanding that Munro has been overdue for almost 4 years and fans were champing at the bit, awaiting its release. In my humble opinion, it was worth the wait. The story hidden in the pages of this book possessed all the elements for an excellent read. Great plot, awesome characters, an entertaining storyline, a steamy romance and enough action to keep readers turning the pages. It proved a difficult one to put down. No regrets here regarding the loss of sleep.
I will say nothing about the plot for fear of spoilers. However, if you are a fan of the series, then I believe you would enjoy Munro. If you are new to the series and love paranormal romance, then this would make a great addition to your library.
As one would expect, characters from the previous books made an appearance. Now, after meeting them, I look forward to their stories. Especially Lothaire’s story.
I had a great time getting to know the hero and the heroine. Munro MacReive sure met his match in Kereny Codrina. No shrinking violet here. Strong, independent, a warrior and a leader in her own right. Munro is an alpha male through and through. His actions may appear possessive and controlling, but most of the time, he acted out of fear. Deep down, he was a sweetheart who would do anything to protect his mate.
I enjoyed their interactions which were sprinkled with humour, snark, clashes and heat. They were not perfect as they both made mistakes along the way and this made them relatable. Despite the many hiccups and challenges they faced (and there were many) in their journey to becoming mates, they proved a formidable team.
Now, while Munro and Kereny’s story wrapped up nicely, events occurring throughout the story indicated the series was far from over. I can’t wait to see what next the series has to offer.
Fans of Cole will love Munro. It will whet your appetite and leaves you salivating for more. It’s a story which shows that with true love comes sacrifice. Get ready to have your senses titillated in the world of The Immortals After Dark.
