The romance (sex) between characters is hot and steamy and leaves you wanting more. But the best part is how each character overcomes trials to win their mates. No two characters are the same and no two trials the couples endure are either. The detail she uses in the way she describes everything makes it easy to picture her sexy characters and fantastic world!
Nothing in Cole's books is without purpose. Something she mentions in one book usually comes into play in the following book, or later. Each story blends perfectly with one another, leading up to a huge battle between two warring factions.
FINAL DECISION: Amusing and adventurous, this book is the story of two people who have been alone for a long time. I especially loved how Sebastian is a tough, strong alpha hero but also sweet and a bit innocent around women.
THE STORY: Sebastian Wroth is a reluctant vampire. Turned against his will by his older brothers, Sebastian has spent three centuries fighting against his new nature. One day, Kaderin, the Cold Hearted, a Valkyrie, comes to his castle to kill him. Kaderin has spared the life of a vampire before. That act of mercy cost the lives of her two sisters. Devastated by their deaths, she asked for numbness from her grief and that was granted...but Kaderin now feels nothing -- not sadness, not joy, not passion. She has now spent a thousand years killing vampires when she comes to Sebastian's castle. Failing to kill Sebastian, Kaderin enters the legendary month long contest that is similar to the Amazing Race. Sebastian follows her in the competition intending to win the woman who is his Bride.
OPINION: I love how these two characters bring life to one another. Their story is at times painful because opening up one another emotionally means that they can hurt one another. Sebastian is such a sweet hero. He is a reluctant vampire and through this book comes to accept his own existence. He is almost immediately devoted to Kaderin and spends the remainder of the book chasing her. The adventure really works well with this couple. It brings a lightness and adventure to the story.
The book overlaps the stories of other books and I find it interesting that each book hints at the mysteries of the other books and the motivations of the characters. It makes me interested in continuing to read the series.
WORTH MENTIONING: I love the integration of the modern pop culture world with the paranormal world in this series.
CONNECTED BOOKS: NO REST OR THE WICKED is the third book in the Immortals After Dark series. It can be read as a standalone but is much better after reading the first two books.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4.25 stars.
At around the same time some centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth had been turned into a vampire by his brother who couldn’t bear for him to die. An act which was totally repulsive and against Sebastian’s will. Since then Sebastian despised his existence, became a recluse and sees little reason to live - until the day an exquisite fey creature, Kaderin came to slay one more vampire. When Kaderin approached Sebastian, she again hesitated feeling something she hadn’t felt in ages – lust. She ran, and Sebastian knew then that Kaderin was his reason to live. Criss-crossing the earth, Sebastian would do all in his power to convince Kaderin to become his.
*** In Cole’s best selling second installment of her exceptional Immortals After Dark series I was once again totally caught up in the adventure, romance and some of the most extremely amusing characterizations of the Fey and Valkyrie sisterhood and vampire worlds! All of her characters have their individual talents/quirks which are quite amusing at times and Ms. Cole uses these judiciously balancing out the action, adventure, and romance perfectly. Cole has created a plethora of highly unusual characters to love and hate and their interactions keep the action moving at a rapid pace.
With Kaderin and Sebastian’s story in NO REST FOR THE WICKED, there is probably more action than in A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER, as Kaderin is trying to stay focused on a very special prize she must win during a month long contest. If Kaderin can win (and Kaderin has been the prize winner for several consecutive years running) she may be able to go back in time to save her sisters. However, Ms. Cole does create a lot of angst while Sebastian keeps trying to convince Kaderin that they were meant to be together and he could actually help her win the prize. However, Kaderin is not ready to gracefully accept any help from the pesky, gorgeous, sexy, vampire Sebastian - no matter how much he seems to affect her emerging lustfilled feelings.
Robert Petkoff did an amazing job in narrating and his voice overs were perfect for the many characters contained in the story which totally adds to the pure enjoyment of having someone else do the reading for a most entertaining novel.
Bottom Line: This is number two down in Kresley Cole’s IMMORTALS AFTER DARK series and I cannot wait to get to listen and or read the rest of the volumes! Highly, HIGHLY recommended for fans of the Paranormal Romance Genre!!
