This is the fifth installment in Kresley Cole's wonderful Immortals After Dark series, and its one of her finest. It follows the tale a Holly, a half-Valkyrie who was raised as a human. Her neat and tidy world is turned upside down when she meets Cadeon, a demon mercenary, who informs her that not only is she an immortal, she is also the "Vessal"--a rare woman who in the coming war will bare a child of either ultimate good or evil. He offers her protection, but has ulterior motives that threaten the fragile relationship developing between them.
I was amused by both characters. Cadeon is extremely funny and hot. Holly is smart and quirky, and it's fun to watch her develop a backbone. My only complaint with this book was that the ending was a bit rushed and unsatisfactory, but it's definitely worth reading anyway.
This is only my second Immortals After Dark book that I've read, but after this one, I can't wait to work through the entire series! It was great watching the tightly wound Holly loosen up and figure out who she was meant to be. Cade was so sexy, and watching the many ways he got under her skin was a lot of fun.
It almost makes you wish there really was this "other" world...
I really enjoyed this book, the characters in it had great personalities. Even thought Cade is a pit of a rake, and old fashioned pig... you can't help but fall in love with him. He is the perfect amount of bad boy and good guy... if only he were real... (sigh).
Though I felt a little scandleized by the sex scenes, the book was enjoyable. Cant wait to read the other books in the series. Cole continues to offer great books to read... She is definately one of my favorite authors.
Excellent read. Lots of action. Great story and series. I can not wait for the next installment.
This was one of my favorite books in the series. It kep my interest the entire time. Good Read.
