The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #0.5) by Kresley Cole

Discover a dark and wicked new world in Kresley Cole’s remastered tale “The Warlord Wants Forever,” the first scorching installment in her #1 New York Times bestselling Immortals After Dark series....

The Warlord

Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless Vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his Bride, the one woman who can “blood” him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his Bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body—and soul.

The Seductress

Famed throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, Myst has devoted her life to protecting a magical jewel and to fighting the vampires. Wroth provides her with the perfect opportunity to torment her sworn enemy—for with his new heartbeat comes a consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her. Denying him, she flees, struggling to forget his searing, possessive kiss.

The Hunt is on…

She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen her enchanted jewel, giving him absolute power over her. Now that she’s his for the taking, he intends to make her experience first-hand the agonizing, unending lust she subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Nikolai realizes he wants far more than vengeance from Myst and frees her, will she come back to him?

4 out of 5 stars

I was so excited to finally start the Immortals After Dark series. The Warlord Wants Forever was an awesome introduction to a new world. I loved Myst and Nikolai, what was introduced for the series as a whole, and I’m excited to see where it all will go.

I was totally fascinated right from the start learning about these characters and the world they live in. The story was intense and captivating and so incredibly sexy. Myst and Nikolai, a Valkyrie and her vampire enemy, were both unique and intriguing and I loved the push and pull between them. They had such a great connection with fantastic banter. I loved the wild ride they were on as they came together. I enjoyed learning about Myst’s history and all she’d gone through and I loved learning about Nikolai as a human and where he is now in the vampire world. I loved the whole concept of the blooding and how the vampire’s bond as well. After reading so many vampire books, this was a fresh approach that I enjoyed.

This was a fast-paced story, giving me just enough details to hook me and make me want more. It's a novella so it wasn’t super in-depth but it laid everything out really well so I felt completely invested. I was excited to learn about the Valkyrie, the history of the vampires, and other creatures that were mentioned.

This was a wonderful story. I loved the characters, the drama, the humor, and heat (seriously scorching)! This was a great series starter, can't wait for more.
