A mythic warrior who’ll stop at nothing to possess her . . .
After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he’s waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.
A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .
Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents — until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae — and their notorious dark desires — ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.
An all-consuming desire . . .
Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?
I know I am behind in the Immortals After Dark Series. It seems everyone has read this series but me. I questioned people if I should read this and they were surprised I hadn’t read it already. They did recommend in starting with this book — which is suppose to be the second book — since it fits the timeline better. So I signed up for the reading challenge and started reading about the world created by Kresley Cole.
I am having a little trouble writing this review though. I loved the characters of this book. Lachlain was amazing in his beastly and wild way. He knew what he wanted and he took it — literally. While I didn’t like some of the things he did to achieve his end goal of claiming his mate, I felt it brought out his personality and true nature. Emma was a timid and weak half vampire that was hurt when a fly died. I couldn’t believe we were going to have to read about such a weak character paired with an amazing lead like Lachlain. When she finally started coming out of her shell though, it became amazing.
I think the main problem I have with this book is the complicated world. There are many species and terms that I haven’t been able to figure out yet. I still don’t understand the big battle that is suppose to happen every few hundred years and the full ramifications that come with it. I did find to be curious about some of the secondary characters though. I looked around a little on the authors website and found that most of the secondary characters will have their own book.
While I am not a huge fan as most, I think this series is one that you grow to love as the author brings us a new book. Hopefully I can share in the excitement as I read along to the other books in the series.
