No Rest for the Wicked [Cole]

Book: No Rest for the Wicked [Immortals After Dark #3]
Author: Kresley Cole

Review: Turned into a vampire against his will, Sebastian Wroth lives alone and hates what he has become. When Kaderin, a fey warrior tracks him down to kill him, he welcomes her sword. However, Sebastian is shocked to discover that she is his bride (eternal mate, she causes his heart to beat) while Kaderin, who has been unable to feel emotions for a thousand years, starts to "feel" again when she meets him. The last time Kaderin spared a vampires life, he murdered her two sisters. She decides not to kill him, and is dismayed when he followers her as she competes in the Hie (Amazing Race for immortals) and tries to help her secure victory. 

I had a hard time getting through this book. The Amazing Race aspect should have made it interesting but as almost every character is immortal, there was no tension or concern about people getting seriously injured. However, the primary issue is I just didn't care for either main character. Sebastian was a knight when he was a human, so he was very chivalrous. He didn't have any edge to him and was extremely boring. The most scandalous thing he did in this book was squat in Kaderin's London apartment without her knowing. Kaderin, for her part, was essentially a sociopath for 1k years. I would think feeling any sort of emotion after that long would be overwhelming, but I didn't feel that reading the pages. She was pretty much a one track mind-win the Hie and use the prize to bring her sister's back to life. 

This one can be skipped. 

Grade: 2/5 stars
