What I’m Reading Today…

in Kresley Cole, What I am reading today

So I’ve ventured back into the "Immortals After Dark" series. I’ve just started book two (No Rest for the Wicked), and the tone is very much like the first.

Again, I’m slightly creeped out by the Valkyrie females. They’re just scary weird. Sweet, and beautiful like angels but dangerous and each quirky in their own way. Anger them and beware of the lightening wrath that may strike you down. Freak them out, and their high pitched screeching might just deafen you, and will most certainly shatter all the glass in their vicinity.

And imagine when they all start shrieking at once (which, quite comically seems to happen every time their vampire brother-in-law, Nicolai, walks in the room). They still haven’t gotten used to him yet (they naturally HATE and hunt vampires), and scare the bejeezus out of him each time they see him.

Sometimes Nicolai Wroth really hated his in-laws.

He exhaled wearily as he accompanied his Bride, Myst the Coveted, to the expansive front porch of her former home. They’d just made it to the front steps when the first shriek sounded.

He wasn’t surprised having already learned that his mere vampiric presence would be enough to provoke the nest of Valkyrie.

LOL…that’s just plain funny! Okay. So maybe I’m warming up to their eccentricities.

Anyway, this book is off to a similar start. The vampire (Sebastian) realizes that his Bride – Kaderin (the one he *should* be mated to), is a Valkyrie. She naturally hates him (but can’t deny the basal connection between them). While she denies him, every time he is near, she can barely resist his draw.

Seemingly helpless to stop herself, she inched closer to him, enjoying the hell out of his scent. Now he bent his arm back to bring her into his body.

And Sebastian so far? He is the sweetest, most courteous, protective vampire, and I can’t help but love him already (and I’m only on page 76!).

So, all in all, I’m off to a good start.

You what woman? You are going to keep in the poor house. Now I have to read about screeching women around Vampires. And if they are something that makes you laugh I know I am going to be laughing too. You’re killing me. It sounds like off beat humor and you know how much I love that. I know that lady at Borders is going to laugh when she sees me come in with yet another list.

Hey did you read the very first of the series of immortals after dark. The book was called playing easy to get and it was three short stories but by different writers but kresley cole is the last story in the book and i think it is called the warlord wants forever and is about Nicolai & Myst

Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about! I just hit the bar scene between Sebastian and Kaderin, and I’m loving his angered reaction to what she’s up to…and what his ultimate response was to their whole situation…YES!!!! Angst, tension and realistic spur of the moment reactions….I’m hooked baby!

I didn’t read the first one, but as soon as I’m done with this book, I’m buying the e-book of that anthology. I’m dying to read about Myst and Nicolai, considering their situation seems so important to the series. I regret not having read it first…
