Book Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR KRESLEY COLE delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time... and a Valkyrie aching for his touch.

Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela - the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can't be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Can they conquer an agony of frustration and slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?

My Review
First I only read (listened) to the book that Kresley Cole wrote. Don’t let the cover deceive you. I think in paperback there were two books together. In audio, it’s separate reads.
I’m growing tired of this series and the formula that is in every book. Early on they felt more unique. Now it feels like the same. Immortal untouchable female virgin meets sexy bad boy immortal guy whose never been faithful to one female until now. She struggles with her alpha nature to submit to his will. He realizes she’s the only female that can tame him. They get close to having sex in the first few chapters but wait until sometime after the first half of the book for the deed to be done. And in the meantime they have a quest to fulfill that will bring them together as a couple. Sound about right?
Yeah, well, this book had an interesting twist. I liked the ice queen aspect of why they couldn’t touch. And had I not read this formulaic story several times in a row, I might have enjoyed it more. But repeats start to wane on me.
Thank goodness for Robert’s narration. I think he saved this one for me. He brings the story to life and draws me in more than the story itself.
<u> Audio Review </u>
Robert Petkoff knocks it out the park again with his spot on narration.
Still what can I say. I’m a glutton for punishment. I continue to read the rest of the series. That says something about her writing. It may get formulaic, but it’s far more enjoyable that other books.
