5.0 out of 5 stars Lothaire is both the hero and the antagonist 20 Jun 2012
By Nurrie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If Lothaire was real, he would have invented the phrase "treat them mean, keep them keen". I know some people are uncomfortable with just how evil Lothaire really is, but I saw it as an obstacle to overcome. Lothaire is evil and that's a trait that not going to be simply broken just because he met his "bride".

Lothaire is an ass, and he is meant to be an ass, that's is the obstacle of the book. The true antagonist of the book is Lothaire's darkside, the evil in him, not Doroda or some ancient vampire goddess, it is him. You are meant to hate that side of him and want to smack him on the head when he acts like a cruel, selfish idiot, that side of him is more dangerous to Ellie than any immortal evil out there. And as he is main antagonist, don't expect that side to be defeated early on in the book. Expect to get angry.

You're meant to be upset when Ellie is, cheer when Ellie cheers and get angry at Lothaire when she gets angry at him.

And judging by the negative reviews, Cole did her job and did it well, any less would be an insult.

I enjoyed reading his story arc and character's growth. This was a beautiful, sexy raunchy book, and I enjoyed that the hero is also the villian, and you're willing him to see the truth and open his eyes as well as his heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lothaire - *swoon* 11 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been waiting for Lothaire for quite some time, and I've just stayed up all night reading it because, like everything Kresley Cole writes, I couldn't seem to put it down.

What can I say? Lothaire was fantastic, everything I'd hoped he'd be. Arrogant, dry, utterly intractable. And so dirty. The sex in this book is a bit of a change of style compared to some of the others in the series. It's still steamy as ever, but Lothaire isn't the usual animal-passion Lykae or tortured Wroth or Woede. Lothaire is like... my kinda guy. Let's just say he can turn a pretty phrase in EVERY situation ;) At one point, I became worried that he was going to 'go soppy' like some of her other heroes do... but then Cole pulled it out of the bag in spectacular style, and Lothaire screwed it all up by being so Lothairish it was awesome (The heart scene? Pure Lothaire!) Yet I still totally felt his romance with Ellie. It was very honest, yet he never lurched in to 'tortured' or 'over-protective' hero mode. He was basically an arrogant idiot, and in several places I wanted to smack his head against the wall, but at the same time just loved everything he said. If there was ever someone who needed a bit of no-nonsense love (as oppose to doe-eyed adoration), it was Lothaire. But when he gets it? Boy, does he ever not have a clue what to do with it! Lothaire is the least 'heroic' hero Cole's ever written. I love how he does almost nothing to earn Ellie's forgiveness... yet he gets it anyway. The human character puts all the warring, vendetta-carrying immortals to shame. Ellie forgives Lothaire not because he's earned it... but because she likes him and wants him in her life, knowing that he'll probably always be like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good But Not as Good as I Hoped 11 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This review is actually for the hardback edition but as Amazon says it hasn't been released yet it won't let me post a review. Even though I pre-ordered it off Amazon and received it yesterday!

I'm not going to give away any spoilers as I don't want to ruin it for anybody. But here's a short blurb.

Lothaire, as we all know is the `Enemy of Old'. He is the bastard child of the King of the Horde. He promised his Dacian vampire mother before she was tortured and killed that he would slay his father so the Horde will swear fealty to Lothaire. He then plans to unite the Dacian and Horde kingdoms together.

Elizabeth is from a poor mining family in the Appalachian Mountains. She became possessed by a demon Saroya at the age of 19 and has been fighting to get rid of her ever since. She is strong enough to keep Saroya hidden deep but every now and again she manages to break free and during these times kills and mutilates people. Elizabeth therefore ends up on Death Row.

When Lothaire meets Elizabeth he becomes blooded but he assumes his bride is Saroya not Elizabeth as fate wouldn't be so unkind as to give him a mortal bride. Therefore he needs to find a magical ring which will extinguish Elizabeth's soul thus allowing Saroya to take full possession of the body and Lothaire can then make her immortal by turning her into a vampire.

I really enjoyed this book, though it's not as good as I'd hoped it would be. This is the book all `Immortals' readers have been waiting for, the same as `Acheron' by Sherilyn Kenyon. When something is as hotly anticipated as these books they very rarely live up to expectations.

For those of you who are trying to work out who the heroine is, don't bother, Elizabeth is a complete newcomer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 22 Jan 2012
By Sylarah
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Honestly, Kresley Cole's "Lothaire" left me feeling quite torn once I finished reading it. While there were definitely a number of enjoyable and good parts, I was left feeling disappointed and for the first time ever, I found the quality of a Kresley Cole book lacking. This is the weakest book in the series (novellas included).

Let me first say that Lothaire and Ellie through the book became some of my favorite characters in the series. Both are clever and creative when dealing with whatever life throws at them, and they do make an enjoyable couple (at times). A few of the other characters we meet, Thad, the Hag, Nix and La Dorada especially, were entertaining and revealed glimpses of really intriguing plots to come, but most minor characters remained part of the background, which was a shame. The book also contains a lot of information about vampires in the lore and their history.

However, the book suffers from a number of problems. Firstly, Lothaire is one of the books strengths, but also one of its greatest weaknesses. Lothaire is cunning, dry humored, selfish, arrogant, ruthless and evil, all things that make him the interesting character he has been. But while these traits are what make him so great, it also makes him a terrible leading man in a romance novel. He is hard to relate to, sympathize with or even like in a significant portion of the book. Also, he doesn't interact all that much with Ellie, and in fact, the romance part of the story is barely visible until the end.

My second problem with the book is the fact that the first half of the book was almost exclusively expositional, acting as an incredibly long, dragged out setup for the actual story.
