Book Description

28 April 2011 Immortals After Dark 4
Considering his history with Mariketa the Awaited, Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan should be pleased when dark forces unite against her. Yet when he discovers how vulnerable the beautiful, wee witch truly is, Bowen, a ruthless warrior, finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive. Mari can't control the awesome power she possesses and recognizes the need for a temporary Protector - even one as cold as Bowen. Though it's rumoured that no one can touch his hardened heart, soon passion begins to burn between them. Once Bowen realizes he wants Mari for his own, will she withstand his wicked seduction - or surrender her body and her love to this fierce warrior?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the Series... ...So far 29 Jan 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I write this review assuming you have read the first two books in the Immortals After Dark series. Although these books can be read out of order, because they cross over chronologically, I would recommend you go back and read from the start of the series. 'A Hunger Like No Other' is first, followed by 'No Rest For The Wicked'.

You are first introduced to Bowen in 'A Hunger Like No Other' and then again in 'No Rest For the Wicked'. In both books Bowen is a dark and tormented character pining for his lost mate Mariah. As a Lykae he only gets one mate and has mourned Mariah's loss for centuries. He blames himself for her death because she died running from him. On the night they were to mate and seal their bond, Mariah falters and flees from Bowen. During her frantic escape she tragically dies. Not able to cope with the loss Bowen changes and becomes a shell of his former self.

When Bowen meets Mariketa in 'No Rest For The Wicked' they are both competing in the Talismans' Hie, a mystical version of the Amazing Race, where the prize for winning is the chance to go back in time. This is Bowen's chance to get his mate back. However while competing in The Hie, for the first time since Mariah he is attracted to another woman. Mariketa is a witch, and because of this Bowen assumes his feelings for her are due to a spell she has cast on him. By the time you finish 'No Rest For the Wicked' Bowen has caused Mariketa to be trapped as retaliation for her sorcery, cursing him not only with feelings for her but also restricting his ability to heal from the gruesome injuries he's sustained in The Hie.

'Wicked Deed on a Winter's Night' is an immediate follow on from ' No Rest For The Wicked'.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I wonder as I close the third novel, Wicked deeds on a winter's night: Can the Immortal after dark series get any sweeter then this?

Bowen is desperate for the prize of The Hie, his heart knows and feels only one yearning: the return of his murdered mate Mariah to his life, to his body, to his heart. There isn't much that he wouldn't do to reach that goal. During the hunt for the artifacts Bowen meets a witch Mariketa and instantly passion ignites. Still Bowen focuses on his goal and raises his natural barrier of hate for witches and refuses his hunger which is thrumming through his veins. In the end he traps Mariketa with a few others in the cave not knowing something evil lurks in the dark....

In the next weeks both Bowen and Mariketa find out what torture can be like and through circumstances their paths cross again. Though it was a matter of weeks much has changed as the Lykae inside of Bowen roars: Mine his mind roars: No! Yet as they both travel they cannot escape their Destiny, whether it is one they experience together will demand the strength of love, the healing of hope and the power of forgiveness.

With Bowen's story I was thrown back in to the last days of The Hie, only witnessing it from a different perspective this time. Though it felt a bit awkward in the beginning as I knew certain things would happen and the why of it all. It made me feel a bit torn up as Kresley Cole took me to the other side, to the side of Bowen. He grabbed my heart so early on in this series and with his story it only amplified. With a masterful skill in setting up a story and giving voice to devilishly good developed characters she gave me a tortured hero whom evolved throughout the story in such a man any reader of the paranormal genre would pine for.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was an excellent story! 15 Mar 2009
By Lulu
Format:Mass Market Paperback
And Bowen? he's to die for!
Let me say after the last book 'No Rest for the Wicked ' which I didn't like, I wasn't sure what to expect in this one. All I can say is that I couldn't put this book down until I finished, and what a climatic ending. Absolutely loved it.
The romantic aspect of this book was so very believable. Bowen and Mari were perfect together.

At 1200 years, Bowen, a ruthless warrior who had lost his mate grew even colder, never taking another to his bed, until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited reawakens his darkest desires. And finds his Instincts kicking up soon after meeting Mari much to his horror since Bowen as a deep hatred of witches.
Mari is a fiery red-haired witch only 23 and mortal.
Bowen's only aim in life is to win Thrane's Key, that will allow him to go back in time to save his mate who died almost 200 yrs ago. Hence his taking part in the 'Hie'. All the while doing this he tries to fight his insane attraction to Mari, accusing her of enchanting him with a love spell.

Bowen is one gorgeous Lykae, with a big chip on his shoulder. Finding out how this couple fight every obstacle, sometimes apart and sometimes together, to finally overcome the enemy and get together makes for enthralling reading.
You feel the emotions they go through, when things seem to come apart. This book is a fast-paced fantasy adventure, filled with rage, anger, passion and finally love.

Absolutely great story! Can't wait to start the next book.
