In this next installment in the Immortals After Dark Series, USA TodayBestselling author Kresley Cole delivers a scorching tale about a forbidding vampire who lives in the shadows and the beautiful assassin who hunts him there.

A vampire soldier weary of life...

Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire—a nightmare in his mind—against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live. Until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.

A valkyrie assassin dispatched to destroy him...

When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow—accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings—particularly lust—emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill.

Competitors in a legendary hunt...

The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity—as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world—to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?

Purple Mini Review

No Rest for the Wicked is the third book in the Immortals After Dark series and is one of my favorites. This was another incredible story in the series but would stands out is the passion that vampires feel towards their mates.  Sebastian Wroth has been hiding in his home for years, angry still at his brothers for turning him into a vampire.  Of his brothers Sebastian was the intelligent but socially awkward of the family so his life as a hermit has suited him.  That is until the Valkyrie Kaderin the Cold Hearted comes into his life.  The moment they meet it is earthshattering, literally!  For male vampires when they find their “bride” their heart is brought back to life so the scene is shocking and soooo romantic (she brought him back to life!!).  But it isn’t love at first sight for Kaderin and Sebastian is determined to win her love. He goes so far as to help her win the Talisman’s Hie, the immortals version of the reality show The Amazing Race.

No Rest for the Wicked is the third book of the series but it can be read as a standalone. This is another sexy, romantic and fun story from Kresley Cole. I loved the passion between Sebastian and Kaderin and the hilarious scenes from these characters. The Immortals After Dark series is a must read for all paranormal fans and for those who are looking for action, romance and comedy.  This series has something for everyone to love!

About Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the electrifying Immortals After Dark paranormal series and the young adult Arcana Chronicles. She has also written five award-winning historical romances.

Since her first novel was released in 2003, Kresley has published nineteen books with Simon & Schuster and has seen her releases translated into more than eighteen foreign languages. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Queensland area of Australia.

Cole’s trademark action, sensuality, and humor are exemplified in her popular Immortals After Dark Series, which revolves around the Lore, a secret stratum of hundreds of immortal creatures--ranging from Vampires to Lykae, Furies to Shifters, and Fey to Valkyrie--that each have their strengths, weaknesses, and age old prejudices against the others. Though they secretly live among humans, they constantly war among themselves, which gives her a lot of material.

In 2007, Kresley won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King. In 2010, Kiss of a Demon King earned Kresley her second RITA award. 2011 brought Cole her second #1 NYT bestseller with Dreams of a Dark Warrior.

She lives in Florida with her husband and far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water.
