Really enjoyed the book and the series
FUN, fast paced, and extremely sexy. I loved this read. I highly recommend for the paranormal romance reader. This book could not be pried out of my hands. Lachlain Mac Rieve is a Lykae who escapes the fires of hell after enduring 15 decades of torture. What sets him off is the scent of his mate above him, Emmaline. Half vampire, half Valkyrie, Emmaline is sooo not what Lachlain expects for a mate. Emmaline finds herself thrust into his capture and forced to discover more about herself on this journey then expected.
This book moves along at a good pace & keeps your interest, but there are times when you feel as if you were plunked down into a new world without a guidebook. You learn more & more as the book progresses, but for the first half I felt like I wasn't getting the whole picture because I didn't know enough about the Valkyries, the Lykae Clan & the whole Lore community.
I will read the next on in the series because by the end you received a lot more information & the characters were very interesting. It grabbed me enough that I want to know what happens to the others so I consider that a win bookwise.
I do recommend this but just warn that you have to push through a bit in the first half. The end whips by & you won't want to put it down!
Another great one by cole that makes you laugh till the end; Lachlain's & Emmaline's story. Worth the read.
This is the first book, not novella, of Immortals After Dark, in English. It is hard to get information on this ISBN as it is from a German/UK publisher but this edition is a Trade Paperback in English.
This is a great book. Look for it under the US pub. for lots of reviews. The heroine has been babied and secluded all her life. She becomes empowered and anything but a helpless creature. At first she becomes captured by a Werewolf (OK, not exactly Werewolf but Lakae) who has decided that she is his mate. Only problem, she is a vampire and he HATES vampires. He's been "away" for a couple of centuries and lost in the technology, even cars. So it starts out with mistreatment due to his bigotry and turns into empowerment for her to go out on her own.
I really like the story and characters, great characters. The next two books in the series were even better. One of the best paranormal romance series, arguably the best.
A PEARL award winner and a great one!
