No Rest for the Wicked ~ Kresley Cole
4 out of 5 Stars
In this next installment in the Immortals After Dark Series, USA Today Bestselling author Kresley Cole delivers a scorching tale about a forbidding vampire who lives in the shadows and the beautiful assassin who hunts him there.
A soldier weary of life . . .
Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire – a nightmare in his mind – against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live. Until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.
A Valkyrie assassin dispatched to destroy him . . .
When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow – accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings – particularly lust – emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill.
Become competitors in a legendary hunt.
The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity – as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world – to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?
This book was hoping from the beginning although we didn’t get total satisfaction until further in the book.This story opens to the world to Mist husband family, particularly is brother Sebastian. This guy has had a rough go at life despite is sexiness. I have to scratch my head at some of his troubles since he’s so hot. But I guess in his time, all the men where he lived must have been smoking.
We get to see the world through Kaderin as a contestant on a Supernatural “Survivor” type game. It’s intriguing and captures your attention.We can’t forgot Nix, who is still one of the more interesting characters in this series.
The storyline is one of a kind in this one. I didn’t think of any other books while reading. That’s always good. It also kept me off balance because I couldn’t always guess what was going to happen next. Again another plus. All in all, a solid story.I wasn’t blown away but I thoroughly enjoy it and would recommend.
My book boyfriend, Sebastian.
