Review: The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole
EXCLUSIVE EBOOK NOVELLA with teaser chapters of the hugely anticipated LOTHAIRE
Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature.
She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen the jewel which commands her, giving him absolute power over her. While he possesses it, he can make her do anything, and he plans to in order for her to experience firsthand the agonizing, unending lust she’d purposely subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Wroth realizes he wants more from her and frees her, will she come.

“Five years of hell! You deserve to be fu*ked until you can’t walk!”
My thoughts (Theo~): This book will make you scream. Like screaming because you will get so caught up in the action that you won’t believe your eyes that you have had truly finished it in record time [what’s so ever!].
I’ve read this book because I was hearing only good things about it, and guess what? I was truly not disappointed!
Myst is not your typical Valkyrie, nope, not really! She is truly beautiful and extremely smart, she is also one of the best fighters ever, but she will never get herself enamored with a vampire! She only exists because she has to kill them, destroy them, make them lose their minds and not even blink twice! That’s until she finds her match.
Nikolai Wroth is not your typical vampire either. He is kind, a true warrior, someone you can count on when you need a helping hand and he is not drinking straight from the vein! He is a commander, someone strong, used to have whatever he wants and he still cannot believe when his heart after near four hundred years, starts to beat for a creature like her! Because she is his bride! His to protect, his to care for!
But she does enable his heart, yet she is not staying with him to let him find his release, she runs away and disobeys her own clan in order to protect his life. She does not know why she is doing it, but she needs to protect this creature even though there were a lot like him – vampires – before. Vampires she killed without a second thought. But her own blood is pumping up when she sees him, tastes him, envisions him, but she has to let him go!
Wroth is not going to let her go now, is he? He is going to go through five painful years without his release, because no other woman or creature will ever satisfy his need for his bride! She is the only one who can satisfy him, who can complete him and he needs her like yesterday!
But she is not easy to find and he can no longer contain himself much more. He must find his bride and that should be happening soon. But he is stubborn and she is even more stubborn than him! But they will eventually find a way.
Even though Myst is fighting against her own nature, she still starts to develop feelings for this creature from the dark side, because he is the only one who was able to break the chain! He now can control her every single move, every single word, every single touch. But in a way his vows and promises are even greater than the desire to control her. He needs her trust before he can act, and he needs her every single touch and every single piece of her. Even if he has to break her centimeter by centimeter!
Will they be able to find their way? Will their feelings finally reveal? Will Myst succumb to his desires and hers also? What will they do if a greater danger is in sight and they have to fight, but they have to protect themselves too?
Happy readying everyone~!
My rating: 5 / 5 stars
