One of the things I love about this series is it doesn't matter how long I take between books it always feels like sitting down to a conversation with an old friend. But then considering we've been seeing Lothaire in almost every book since the beginning I guess he is an old friend.. A cranky old friend. A friend who you dont want to piss off. Unless of course your Ellie. That girl has balls! Seriously big balls. I mean, I know she has resigned herself to her death but she stands up to Lothaire and pushes back at him. Every single time. And lives. I loved that about her.
Lothaire is pretty much how we seem him throughout the series, always scheming for his own goals. And this book is no different. Only this time he has to consider the safety of his bride whilst he tries to put the finishing touches on his plans. And throughout all of this he still maintains that bad ass image of his. Well.... mostly.
This book was every bit as good as the books that came before it. Well worth the wait. And definitely lived up to my expectations.
My only OCD complaint is this book is printed in a different size and style from the others so it ruins my perfectly organised collection! Sigh. :P
Good time for delivery and delivered in perfect condition.
Lothaire aka The Enemy of Old or 'Leo' as becomes his name from Ellie in this story is stunning. Although not the most romantic of characters and lets face it you wouldn't really want him to be as it would totally ruin the character already set up by the author in all the previous books in the series he is definitely the leading man. I loved the way we finally get to see all of the other sides of the previous encounters with Lothaire from his point of view (and his reasons behind some of his decisions) and Kresley I think also paints the picture as to why he is like he is and even manages to make his situation more sympathetic. The whole book is set around Lothaire and his various plans and schemes but the main one being how to make his bride immortal as there are no female vampires left and as luck would have it fate has gone and set him up with a human of all things much to his disgust! The twist is that Ellie the human in question is currently possessed by Saroya a goddess of vampires who has been cursed to never hold her immortal body again and be dependant on possessing others bodies but is Saroya or Ellie Lothaire's true bride?
I loved this book and the series just keeps getting better and better in my opinion, the only negative that the books can't come fast enough for me to read them! For anyone interested in a fantastic series then Immortals After Dark is definitely for you. Bring on the next book as fast as you can please Kresley!
Back to Lothaire: I have always enjoyed reading about his evil goings on and wondered who would be his "Bride". I never expected it to be a fairly innocent human. I totally agree with Fluffymuskateer's review, written practically a year ago to the day before mine. Kresley set the novel at exactly the right level; Lothaire is still being his usual nefarious self but now his madness is a tempered by Ellie's intelligence, her feisty nature and their mutual, (but not discovered until the last minute) love. I wondered how the problems between the two of them would ever be resolved! Thank goodness for Nix!
I look forward to enjoying more of Lothaire and Ellie in "shadow's claim" which I am just about to read. I love this series with it's expanding cast of characters.
