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.
Now this is what I’m talkin’ about! Yes! Finally Kresley Cole decided to take this series one step further. After reading the previous two I was worried I’ll end up being blah towards this series, since I felt it was repetitive, but after this I think this will have a place among my favorites. The book had everything it needed: mind-blowing action, an amazing story, touching moments and hot love scenes. I’m really impressed.
Now, what I loved about the story was the dynamics of it. Yes, I prefer something to catch my attention and keep it for at least 60% of the book. Unfortunately sometimes it’s difficult for me to find this. No Rest for the Wicked had my full attention from page one, even though I found that the beginning of the story was a bit too sudden. But it wasn’t so bad, eventually I managed to get used to this. The Amazing-Race-like competition was a very good idea; I guess this is what made the whole book so great.
The characters were also nice. I am impressed with Sebastian, he can be a dualist at times and I find that interesting. He is such a kind and intelligent person. I must say I was expecting another brute, so this was a pleasant surprise for me. Kaderin… uhm… what can I say about her? I hated her. I really really did. I guess she wasn’t made for loving (except by poor Sebastian) so there was no surprise when I wanted to choke her to death. I actually got angry because the author exaggerated with Sebastian chasing her and kissing her ass so much. I doubt any man would do that even if she was his Bride.
All in all I must say that this was a really great read. I can’t wait to see what the next one in this series is about.
