4.0 out of 5 stars Love a bit of Cole, 25 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark 11) (Paperback)
**slightly spoilerish**
The long awaited Regin story didn't fail to deliver.
Very funny book (maybe the one I laughed at most so far in the series), FULL of action, steaming romance (as usual) and generally thrilling story line.

A long time ago Regin the Radiant (Valkyrie) fell in love with Aidan the Fierce (Berserker) but before they had any time together Aidan was murdered. Since then, over hundreds of years, he has been reincarnated in different forms, and with no memory of his former lives. Every time Regin finds him, and every time she does he soon dies.
This time he has been reincarnated into Declan Chase- a human intent of wiping her kind out. A human who has captured her - and many other creatures of the Lore - and is keeping them captive, torturing and experimenting on them, then exterminating them.

However, I sadly have a couple of issues:
1) It felt very repetitive for the first half of the book. I felt that it went over a lot we already knew, like her torture, as we'd read it in the previous book (Demon From the Dark). So I was disappointed there wasn't more "new" stuff, but the new stuff was really good. Fingers crossed every character's story that involves being held by the Order in that prison wont recover ground like that. A skim through would do I think.
2) It was very, very difficult to like Chase. Cole made it almost too difficult. I did feel for him as I hated that he had to live up to Aidan, the perfect Viking, but other than that I needed more time to come round. Time we didn't have. I felt the romance was rushed as she ran out of pages, and Regin gave in too quickly. But that's just my opinion- others will no doubt feel different.

Overall, still a very enjoyable book. I love this series and am excited to see where it goes next. This book definitely left me wanting more. The secondary characters may have stolen the show, to be honest. Lothaire has a lot of screen time, as well as some new introductions. Really cannot wait for the next installment.

I would recommend this book to fans (of course), and recommend the series to anyone new who enjoys paranormal romances (and such authors as Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong, Lara Adrian, Gena Showalter, etc). For those new to the series I'd definitely suggest starting at the beginning of the series (not with this book). Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1) is the first full length novel.
