No Rest for the Wicked cover

Author: Kresley Cole
Series: Immortals after Dark
Publisher: Pocket Star Books

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.

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?

My review

No Rest for the Wicked is not just another book to read. It’s sizzling hot. With every page drawing you deeper and deeper into the story. Into the lives of the characters.

Kresley Cole is an expert of bringing her characters to life. Making readers experience their story, not just watch it from the sidelines.

It pulled me in. I have to admit. I felt every single emotion Kaderin and Sebastian lived through. I laughed. I cried. And I couldn’t put the book down till I devoured it all.

I could say I got goose bumps, chills and tingles. And they were multiplying with every magical word I read.

I not only read about Kaderin and her awakened feelings – I was her. I not only watched Sebastian’s attempts to win her over – I fell in love with him. Not only for the duration of the book. They stayed with me long after I put it on my book shelf.

Actually, even though No Rest for the Wicked is the second book in the series of The Immortals After Dark (not including The Warlord Wants Forever – the first short story), I happen to receive it for my birthday as my first book of Kresley Cole’s. An extraordinary present, which seduced me into reading her other work.

To repeat it, it’s not just another book. It’s a long and dangerous journey I would gladly plunge in again if only I could.

I envy the ones who are yet to read it for the first time. Get ready for the quest of your life and cherish the memories afterwards – that’s all I have to say about No Rest for the Wicked.

P.S. If the author herself ever stumbled upon my page, I would like to tell her a big thanks for the memorable adventures, yet inform that while I understand that fiction is fiction and even Wroth name could be Estonian in it, Russian language cannot be Baltic. Neither does Estonian. (For those who don’t know: Russian is a Slavic language and Estonian is Finno-Ugric.)
