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. 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.
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 Thoughts (review)
this book is about, like above a Valkyrie who was ‘blessed’ with the ability to feel nothing until she goes to kill Sebastian, a turned vampire who wishes for nothing but his death, never wanting to be what he is, his has been disgusted with himself until her. A little woman who starts his heart beating again—problem? She’s his bride and nothing can say will keep him away from her, not even the fact that she’s spent the last millennium or more killing off his kind, even though she hates what he is just about as much as he does himself.
Try as she might to get away from him, and return herself to her glorious cold-hearted self, she sets off to compete in the Talisman’s Hie the one thing she loves for other than killing vampires. And that’s when the fun really begins.
I’m not that sure how I rate this book (among it’s others) it wasn’t half of what I was expecting, and yet it was more. And though it’s placed over a long period of time, it’s so quick that some of the feelings in the whole are confusing and you feel maybe even quick to come, and yet you know there not. which made it an interesting book, that two and the chase thing that happens, the idea behind it all and the characters that are in it are all great, and yet there the same, though can anyone really blame that. it’s kinda what makes it interesting in a way, because we already know a little about the other players (or at least the one that matters) and the need to win from that person even if it’s not really looked into because we have already seen him (if you read these books in order) so yeah... it was great, and I like her as a author, or at least I like this series that she has written this series, can’t comment on her others, since I haven’t read them.
Anyway, the series is great; one that you should pick up and have a gander over, maybe you will like it, maybe not. I can’t say what your type is really like. But I enjoyed it immensely and with the stupid preview of the book to come, I want to get that one. But she is a great writer all her characters are different and persistent and make you fall in love with them as quickly as they do each other.
