New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Kresley Cole delivers a scorching tale about a foreboding vampire who lives in the shadows--and the beautiful assassin determined to hunt him down--in the "sensational" ( RT Book Reviews ) second novel of the Immortals After Dark series.

Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire 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.

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 Kaderin encounters Sebastian, her feelings--particularly lust--emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill.

And when the prize of a legendary month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, 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 Kaderin is forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can she live without either?

Another very good book from The Immortals After Dark series. Sebastian Wroth was turned against his will many years ago. He wants to die and end his new life. When the vampire hunter Kaderin The Cold Hearted finds him and tries to kill him, she finds it strange that he is willing to die and doesn't fight her. It seems she can't kill him. They both enter the competition to win 2 keys that can change the past. They go through a lot together trying to win the keys. This book will hold your interest from the beginning to the end. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Kaderin and Sebastian. A fun love story.

Wasn't as good as I was expecting. I didn't feel much for either character, they were nice enough, but they didn't inspire much sympathy or humour in me. I'm looking forward to reading Nix's story.

You are allowed to bend corners,you are allowed to origami, when you mix romance with the paranormal world. I have many secret little indulges this book is now labeled under decadent cake with trans-fa made with the most diabetic of frostings. Kresley Cole knows how to mess with my reasoning and logic when it comes to story-telling. Her writing is plausible, because the myths and urban legends of these monsters are so staggering, that I give her pass for not trying to reinvent the wheel and for keeping the identities of the creatures as respectful as possible. I just had a hard time buying making out with a bunch of snakes trying to come and eat you. You can save the dry-humping for after you guys save the other.

I liked this story. It's a good follow-up to "A Hunger Like no Other". The hero in this one is especially endearing and you really feel for him. The race was fun to read and I couldn't help but cheer for these two characters. Cant wait for the next book.
