Review: No Rest for The Wicked by Kresley Cole


NO REST FOR THE WICKED (Immortal After Dark, bk #2)
by Kresley Cole
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance


A vampire 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.

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?

REVIEW

"Vampire please," she murmured, "make it worth it. Make it . . ."
When their lips touched, he groaned; electricity seemed to prick at his skin. He pulled back from her. "My God." Nothing had ever felt so powerful, so right, as this kiss. Her hungry expression deepened.

This book was everything I hoped it'd be and wished for - seriously, I inhaled it and hands down, it blew my mind. I can honestly say Sebastian is one of my favorite vampires ever. He's a gentlemen, caring, and yet very dominating and naughty. He's the whole package. 

No Rest For The Wicked was a thrilling read, packed with lots of twists and turns and a whole lot of action - perfect mixture to make me a happy reader.

Sebastian got turned into a vampire 300+ years ago by his brother Nikolai and ever since then he hated what he became. So he hid in his home letting his meaningless life pass by; for years, decades even, he stood in the shadows pitying his existence until she came to him. Kaderin, the Valkyrie's top assassin, to kill him.

She hates vampire. Vampires are the reason why she lost her sisters. Vampires are the reason why the gods fulfilled her wish to never feel again -  she couldn't handle her pain and wanted to be numb. Numb to slay more vampires, her favorite sport, until she meets Sebastian, her next victim. The first vampire who doesn't care if she kills him, the first vampire she can't seem to kill. The first vampire who evokes something within her - a hunger and desire like no other.

She wants the forbidden but knows it can't be. She can't fall for the enemy and is confused by her action, thoughts and overall feelings - who seem to drown her - when looking at this handsome vampire.

"Had any male tasted so good?His taste made her body react with animal needs so strong, she twitched as she resisted them. She wanted to rip his jeans from him, take that thick shaft in both hands, and lick its length in a frenzy."

Ladies, their encounters were smoking hot and I lost count how many times I fanned myself to calm down -whoa. I can't say she made it easy for him and he, too, stood his ground, showing her his limits. But you can only pretend and deny for so long until your deepest desires overpower you because the person (or creature) in front of you is your soulmate, your mate/bride, your fate, and your lifeline. 

What I loved about the second book in the Immortal After Dark series is that it's full with action. Kaderin competes in the Hei, a contest that occurs every 250 yrs where all Lore creatures have to gather treasures from around the world. The fastest and strongest wins and the prize is always worth the risk, as it was this year. I loved reading how Kaderin is such a strong female fighter, she's a born assassin, and Sebastian was just as impressed - he the warlord from Estonia. He battled by her side and what they went through was brutal but it strengthened their bond. 

This book was brilliant and the happy ending was well deserved - prepare your heart for some surprises! Mrs Cole is one heck of an author and I can't seem to get enough of her characters and stories. #TopFavorite so far!
