Review: Lothaire by Kresley Cole

Lothaire (Immortals After Dark, #12)
In this thrilling tale of the Immortals After Dark, #1 New York Timesbestselling author Kresley Cole reveals secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals.
All Fear The Enemy Of Old
Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness—until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.
A Deadly Force Dwells Within Her
Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder—or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.
Centuries Of Cold Indifference Shattered
Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

It fees like I have been waiting to read this book for years. And looking back that would be because it has been years since my eyes first fell upon this cover.. This is the book that made me want to read this entire series. I have loved every book in this series and the closer I got to Lothaires story the more I put it off because I had wanted to love it so much that I was worried he may not live up to my expectations.

One of the things I love about this series is it doesn't matter how long I take between books it always feels like sitting down to a conversation with an old friend. But then considering we've been seeing Lothaire in almost every book since the beginning I guess he is an old friend.. A cranky old friend. A friend who you dont want to piss off. Unless of course your Ellie. That girl has balls! Seriously big balls. I mean, I know she has resigned herself to her death but she stands up to Lothaire and pushes back at him. Every single time. And lives. I loved that about her.
Lothaire is pretty much how we seem him throughout the series, always scheming for his own goals. And this book is no different. Only this time he has to consider the safety of his bride whilst he tries to put the finishing touches on his plans. And throughout all of this he still maintains that bad ass image of his. Well.... mostly.

This book was every bit as good as the books that came before it. Well worth the wait. And definitely lived up to my expectations.
