Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole

Updated: Feb 11




Hello Friends!


I have mentioned on Booktok many times my everlasting love for the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole. If you're a paranormal romance reader, this is one of the best series out there in my opinion. I've jokingly called my tiktok page the "unofficial fan page" for the series, and I recently realized that for all my talking about it, I didn't actually have anything posted on my blog about it because I read the series long before I had a blog. I'm correcting that now!


A special announcement: I got picked to be on Kresley's ARC team, so I will be reading Munro early and will be ready to dish alllll the details!


There is a ton of info out there, but I'll try to post all the most helpful info here. Click the links to what you want to see:

PLOT SUMMARIES


This document is only for the folks who've already read the books. I'm going to include a quick plot summary for each book so that if you want to jump right back into Munro, you don't have to reread the entire series (unless you want to!) I'm rereading the series now to pick up on all the details and will update this page as I go. 19 books in 2 months? I got this 😨 I originally had all of this on my page, but it became so large it pretty much crashed my Wix!
