An immortal assassin is caught between desire and duty in this sizzling new novel from Kresley Cole’s #1 New York Times bestselling Immortals After Dark series.
A foundling raised in a world of humans
Growing up, orphaned Josephine didn't know who or what she was—just that she was "bad," an outcast with strange powers. Protecting her baby brother Thaddeus became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo's transition from angry girl…to would-be superhero…to enchanting villain.
A lethally sensual enforcer on a mission
Whether by bow or in bed, archer Rune the Baneblood never fails to eliminate his target. In his sights: the oldest living Valkyrie. Yet before he can strike, he encounters a vampiric creature whose beauty mesmerizes him. With one bite, she pierces him with aching pleasure, stealing his forbidden blood—and jeopardizing the secrets of his brethren.
A boundless passion that will lead to sweet ruin…
Could this exquisite female be a spy sent by the very Valkyrie he hunts? Rune knows he must not trust Josephine, yet he's unable to turn her away. When Jo betrays the identity of the one man she will die to protect, she and Rune become locked in a treacherous battle of wills that pits ultimate loyalty against unbridled lust.
Yeah, another amazing instalment to this series! I loved it so much ,it was just so great and awesome, and I loved these characters and everything that was going on. It was strange to have the Valkyries as the bad guys in this book, but I have a suspicion.
Both Jo and Rune are new characters to this series. (At least to me, but I'm pretty sure they're new to all readers who aren't in Kresley Cole's inner circle!) but Jo is Thad's sister, so there's that link. And Rune is a Morior, one of the big bads that have been talked about in the previous instalments. So there's that.
I loved their relationship! She's been alone most of her life, after giving up her brother so he could have a normal life, while he's had a pretty hard and isolating life, by the circumstances of his birth, and the fact that he's a Dark Fey. They were just awesome together!
The above suspicion, is that I think that the Morior and the gang that Nix has been collecting could be on the same side. Because the Morior are said to be the harbingers, not the actual starters of the apocalypse. So yeah, thinking that they're on the same side, just some wires crossed!
Really fantastic book, and I just want the next book no!
