PNR Audio Review: No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole

Between Cole's writing and Petkoff's narration; dry humping has never sounded so sexy.

We first heard of Kaderin in No Hunger Like Another and knew that she was a bad ass chick with no feelings. But it's not because she is a cold hearted bitch. We learn more about her past and what happened to her to make her the way she is today.

Sebastian is the younger brother to Nikolai Wroth, who was the yummy vampire in the novella, The Warlord Wants Forever. So already the two are tied together through Nikolai and Myst's marriage. (Myst is member of Kaderin's Valkyrie family.)

Kaderin has prided herself on being a great vampire killer, who's sword never fails taking a vampire's life. But when she finds a dark and brooding vampire hidden away in an old castle she can't bring herself to make the killing blow.

After the two exchange a few words they realize that she is his vampire bride after she bloods him (vampires believe that there is one woman for them and that's their bride, when a vampire is blooded that means that they once again have a heart beat and feels arousal for that woman and will stop at nothing to make her his forever). Kaderin is horrified because valkyrie hate vampires and she has spent hundreds of years killing them.

During the course of the book Kaderin is competing in the Lore's version of the Amazing Race (Cole's words not mine). All kinds of immortals sign up to compete for a grand prize. They travel all over the world earning points to be included in the final round. Sebastian decides he will enter to try and win Kaderin's affections by helping her win the grand prize.

I think that Kaderin and Sebastian made a more believable couple in the way that it took them a while to really get down to the sweaty nekked fun. Sure it was lust at first site but they worked their way to each other and recognized that just because they had fun with the slap and tickle that didn't mean they were in love. One thing leads to another and the two get to know each other and feels start to develop between them. After some hard times and past memories the two find their HEA.

I must say that I'm really enjoying Kersely Cole's writing. So far the stories in this series flow every well and LOVE the characters especially the Valkyrie chicks. They are kick ass warrior chicks but they also have some of the funniest lines I've read in a while. I enjoy how the men in the series so far are so out of touch with the  present that the Valkyrie women help bring them up to date with pop cultural references and sang. This series is just plain funny as hell and sexy at the same time.

  1. It doesn't seem....weird when you're having a sex scene read to you? That's one of the biggest reasons I haven't tried audio books yet.

    Glad you're liking this series. It's one of my favorite PNR books. I think Conrad's book is my favorite of the Wroth brothers.

  2. I started this series last year and enjoyed it, but reviews, life, etc. got in the way. I need to find time to pick it up. I agree with your assessment - I enjoy KC writing! Thanks!

  3. Excellent review!! So happy you are enjoying this series, and yes, yes! I completely agree with you, the Valkyrie chicks know how to put these guys on their place.
    Love then.

  4. Great review!;)

    I'm glad you enjoyed this book!;) I read it back in January, but I need to pick these back up, they've been in my catch pile forever lol!! After reading your review you make me want to pick them up again!!;)

    1. They have been on my TBR list for a long time too. I plan to read at least one a month this year to catch up with the series.

  5. A lot of loyalty, a lot frustration, feeling overwhelmed,
    and a workaholic type that gets the right job done at the right
    price is what separates advertising from direct response Student Loans?
