Author Kersley Cole
POCKET STAR BOOKS, year 2006
Available format: Paperback & ebook
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 course will take them through ancient tombs and catacombs, seeking relics around the world, and the prize for victory is powerful enough for Kaderin to change history and prevent her sisters’ death. Sebastian competes as well, and begins winning her. But when forced to choose between Sebastian and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?
No Rest For The Wicked is the 3rd book in the Immortals After Dark series, and I will just say one thing…this book doesn’t disappoint. As I read this book I found myself losing myself through the pages and wanting to know more and more about Kresley Cole’s supernatural world of darkness, life, family and the true meaning of love- and that nothing can change it when it happens to you, or anyone else.
Plot – ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ I really enjoyed the plot, it didn’t give too much away or what was going to happen later in the book. At some points I was finding myself not beginning able to guess what was about to happen, or what had yet come to pass… I give the plot five stars!
Writing – ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ The writing in No Rest For The Wicked didn’t really change any from A Hunger Like No Other, which I was glad to see. I enjoyed the writing in A Hunger Like No Other as such I enjoyed the writing in this book as well. I give the writing five stars!
Characters - ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ I really enjoyed the characters in No Rest For The Wicked. I enjoyed getting to know them and knowing what they liked, disliked, and learning their each and every desire. I give the characters five stars!
Kaderin the Cold Hearted – I really enjoyed Kaderin’s character. She was interesting, and the way her emotions came flooding back with a simple look or touch from Sebastian was just so romantic!
Sebastian Wroth – I don’t know what it was about Sebastian, but I found myself just feeling so lost when he was the focus of the story at points. Learning about his turning, his family and such was just so amazing and sad all at the same time. He was strong, dark and mysterious and surprisingly innocent!
Bowen – Bowen is back and strong as ever…! He is as well in the hunt for the powerful item in hope of getting his mate back. Bowen will do anything to get his mate back, even if it means making some enemies in the process. That makes him a very powerful foe to mess with and if Kaderin and Sebastian aren’t careful they could end up hurt, or worse…!
Overall I give this book ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ – nothing more and nothing less!
