excellent holiday read,
This review is from: Deep Kiss of Winter (Immortals After Dark 8) (Hardcover)
I was so excited about the next installment of the Immortals After Dark series and I have to say 'Untouchable' by Kresley Cole did not disappoint. Kresley manages to make Murdoch the player sweetly sexy, and Daniela's character one emphasises with (which is pretty impressive I initially thought I'd be thinking "shut up wingeing about not being able to make skin contact-miserable cow")I found the plot well thought out- throughout the story I had no idea how it was going to end; furthermore the conclusion was one which satisfied without having to rely on some random act of luck/wizardry etc. My personal highlight was how the romance developed- many of the sexy scenes are implicit or rather imaginative. Before reading this story I had had a long break from Cole and I had forgotton how genuinely refreshing it is to have female characters (including main leads) who truly kick arse. Go team. I am not sure about this as a stand alone if you are intending on reading the series do start at the beginning- 'Untouchable' will give too much away of a couple of the other stories which benefitted much from Murdoch's air of mystique.
Now onto Showalter- this was my first taste of Alien Huntress series and it did seem to work well as a stand alone. I did find this read very entertaining, however I just could not buy into the plotline- it felt a little "oh come off it". For anyone new to Showalter try the Lords of the Underworld series- and yes I know "you can believe in demons but not aliens?" is a little hypocritical.
