#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR KRESLEY COLE delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time . . . and a Valkyrie aching for his touch.
Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela—the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can’t be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Can they conquer an agony of frustration and slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?

Murdoch the strong warlord who sometimes doubles as the “manwhore” of the Wroth family is a deep and complex character (surprise to me!). I find that he is a man who doesn’t know what to do with women who don’t automatically fall for him, and he really doesn’t know what to do with the emotions that he realizes he is developing.
Danii is such a sweet character. I hate that she is missing so much human/Lore contact due to her skin being ice cold. To live that long without physical touch would make me insane! But I love how she deals with it. She finds that having a healthy fantasy life, a good book collection, and giving people a hard time by dressing as she does is a great way to keep sane.
I like how this story spans from the first short story, through the first several books of this series. It makes for a great story and gives us readers a time frame (which is really damn long!).
And I must say, I liked how Murdoch knew the answer all the time to have what he wanted, but didn’t realize he needed to pay attention to his dreams to get the answer!
Nix, my favorite character from this series, is hiding something… Like big! I wonder what it is, and I wonder who it is, and I want to know now! J
I loved getting the new perspectives of the stories of Myst, Kaderin, Neomi and the other Wroth Brothers. Seeing what Danii and Murdoch thought, and what they wanted to do made for some interesting thoughts.
Overall, this was a great sort story. I hate that it was only a short story. I could have used a bit more Danii/Murdoch time, but it was still really good!
Highly recommend, and I’m looking forward to reading more from Ms. Cole.
