Book Description:
ALL FEAR THE ENEMY OF OLD

Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown by offering up the soul of his lovely new captive, Elizabeth Peirce. Yet the young human soon tempts him beyond reason.

A DEADLY FORCE DWELLS WITHIN HER

Ellie Peirce’s life was a living hell—even before an evil immortal abducted her. Though he plans to sacrifice her, the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, she surrenders her body, while vowing to protect her heart.

CENTURIES OF COLD INDIFFERENCE SHATTERED

In one month, Lothaire must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will he succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
Sadly, despite highly anticipating this book, I was disappointed. After reading this series all would know that Lothaire is anything but pleasant and so you would guess that his book is going to be filled with him being and ass. I did, however, expect some kind of respect towards his Bride. It is hard to read about an overly arrogant person who thinks everyone is beneath him even those he claims to care for.

The story also seemed a little long and drawn out and introduced things I'm not entirely sure we knew about it the past. I'm all for new information in a series but this just seemed like it was removed to some degree.

The entire story with La Dorada just seemed over the top even for the Immortals After Dark series and felt anti-climactic.

I will, however, say that I enjoyed the plot twist with Nix and am waiting anxiously for her book. Also, find Furie!
