Audio Book: No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole


A 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. 

Become 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?


No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole
4 out of 5

I like how this novel was lighter in tone than the first book.  It isn’t that it is a happier book, but it is definitely not as… aggressive.

The Characters


Sebastian is one yummy vampire that wanted to die, but then realized that he had something to live for. 
For being a vampire for 300 years, he had to learn a lot about the Lore and modern times. 
The way he would do anything for Kadera is so sweet and sexy.  Plus how he was insecure about his sexual prowess and how he was willing to admit that was amazingly sexy. 

Kaderin has been so much, what with the loss of her family, and her desire to return them to life.  But no matter how difficult her life has been, I really wanted her to RUN. INTO. SEBASTIAN’S. ARMS!
I think that to have been emotionless for a millennia then to suddenly have emotions again would be a shock to anyone.  But she handled it a lot better than I would expect someone to. 
The Hie
This was kind of an interesting concept.  The whole immortal amazing race concept of the Hie was interesting to say the least. 
I loved hearing about the mythological items that were collected.  It was pretty cool.
The Hie was also an interesting way to learn more about the Lore. 
I love the concept of time travel, paradoxes, and how going back in time could change the future.  I also loved Ms. Cole’s way of working around all of that.
This was an amazing book. I highly recommend this book!

Happy Reading!
