Review: No rest for the wicked - Kresley Cole

Series: Immortals after dark #3
Genre: Paranormal romance
Pages: 384
Published: 2011 (2006)
Publisher: Simon and Schuster UK
Source: Bought

A vampire warrior who yearns for death...Three hundred years ago, Sebastian Wroth's brothers forced him to become a vampire-a nightmare in his mind. Shamed and alone for ages, he longs to die. Until an exquisite creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead. A beautiful assassin dispatched to destroy him...When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow-accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters the vampire with his grave eyes, her feelings-particularly lust-emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill. The prize is a key powerful enough to resurrect her sisters. Not understanding the key's import, Sebastian hinders her against other opponents by using her new feelings to seduce her and earn her love. But when Kaderin is forced to choose between finally killing Sebastian and reuniting her family, how can she live without either...?

My thoughts:
I did not like it as much as a certain book called A demon from the dark, but then that book was just delicious. Don't get me wrong, this book was also good, just not as good. You know the story. 

Sebastian Wroth is our worthy hero, who hates being a vampire. And he is a smart, now who does not like a warrior nerd? It sure works for me. Then we got Kaderin, sure I liked her but not that much since she is cold, which is totally stupid to say cos she is Kaderin the coldhearted. But then thing is she melts, but she still feels cold for me. But then who would not fight against falling for a vampires? Point taken. 

And I liked the whole fated for life thing because that does not mean they are in love like with other books. He knew she was her Bride and went to hunt her down. But he did not love her, so no instalove, passion yes but then he is a hunk and she is not that shabby herself. 

Conclusion:
We got a wild hunt for treasures, sweet loving (ok not sweet ;), and a insight into this very fascinating world. And it does make it my favorite paranormal series.

Cover:
Not a fan since they all look alike, but on its own, well he looks hot, the little I see of him

Just because Paul Marron is my most, absolutest favouritest Kresley Cole cover art model, I have to agree with you that this is not my favouritest cover... simply because that is not Paul Marron ;)

Chris said...

Whoa, that's sooooo different from the US cover. :)

Aarti said...

You're right, so many covers look exactly alike! I guess those are the most effective, but so blah!

Staci said...

I love that a book can be delicious!! Even though this wasn't quite to that degree it still sounds like a good read. I will have to check out this series!

This is a series that I've been wanting to try for some time now. I know what you mean though about one book in a series not being as good as the previous...it can be frustrating. I'm still planning on giving this series a try at some point because it does sound good :)

Anachronist said...

I am not a fan of Kresley Cole novels. Oooups...I should say I have never read them at all ;)

Elysium said...

I always look these books when I'm at bookstore and I'm thinking I need to try these one day. Sounds good!

Blodeuedd said...

Blodeuedd said...

Yvonne

The Bookworm said...

I have yet to read this author, but I do want to. I guess I'll have to look out for A demon from the Dark then.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Sorry to hear you didn't much mind this one. I've not read this series, and I don't know if I will. It just doesn't seem to catch my attention much. :)

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

Kresley Cole! She is on my must finish her series list this year LOL

Carole Rae said...

He doesn't look so bad. hahaha. Sounds like an interesting book. I'm wondering what she chooses, because hell...with a nerdy vampire warrior in the mix it would be a hard choice.

Blodeuedd said...

Naida
The demon book is yummy, I have never meet anyone that alpha in any other book


Melissa
We can't all love them :)


Felicia
I got a lot of catching up to do! I have read 3 of her books, but I do got two more...and then I am missing a lot in the middle
