I have been listening to the Audible version of the books in this series and the narration has been great for each one. This is the eight book in the 'Immortals After Dark' series and this series still manages to hold my interest. With each new book, I get another couple to discover as they fall in love with each other.

This time around, we get the story of Murdoch and Daniela. Like Naomi, Daniela cannot be touched by her mate. However, Dani's inability to be touched is due to her ice fae herita

Murdoch Wroth


Murdoch

Murdoch is one of the famous Wroth brothers. They are all Forebearer Vampires, which means they do not drink from human flesh. Murdoch used to be a man whore, never sleeping with the same woman twice. He always made sure his lovers were pleased because positive word of mouth was the best advertisement.

When Murdoch was turned into a vampire 300 years ago, he lost all desire for sex. Not only did his heart stop beatin

I had a hard time figuring out which direction to take this installment.

Was it going to be

Fetish Cafe : Frozen

or perhaps

Fetish Cafe : Ice Ice Baby

But if we're going to go cheesy, let's do it full force.



Meanwhile, on 90's throwback night at the cafe...

Me : *trying to make eye contact with the waitress who has passed my table more than 10 times* Hi?

Waitress : One sec. I promise, I will be right with you.

Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.

UNTOUCHABLE piggybacked off of many of the previous installments in this series which gave it a “been there, done that” quality. Murdoch & Daniela’s relationship was somewhat similar to Naomi & Conrad’s from book 5 in that physical contact was impossible, and both stories featured a Wroth brother. The plot was shaky, and seemed more intent on recapping past IMMORTALS AFTER DARK happenings while also introducing new characters instead of giving the two leads their

The 8th book in the Immortals After Dark series brings us the story of the fourth and final of the Wroth brothers – Murdoch. In his human life, Murdoch was a ‘love-em-and-leave-em’ kind of guy, until he was turned into a vampire and rendered unable to be with a woman until he met his fated mate. Now, 300 years later, an encounter with a fierce and intriguing valkyrie makes his heart beat again and he finds himself ‘blooded’ to Daniela the Ice Maiden.

Danii is part ice-fey, making her skin is ice-

Let's see, I liked the beginning. I really liked their first meeting. It's violent and bloody. I also liked the glimpse of Danii's world. After that, though, it goes downhill. If you ignore the steamy parts, Danii and Murdoch turn Untouchable into a YA-like story.
Of course they aren't young adults. They are hundreds of years old. That doesn't stop them. Not even Nix and her antics could have made it better.

Although the story is placed as an eighth story (no idea why), you can read it right afte

3.5 stars rounded up. I really liked the turn around in this one. It's usually the heroine who has trouble committing to the hero who is mega possessive/obsessed from day one.

The hero is mega possessive/obsessed from day one, but he fights it (rather than the other way around, which tends to be the hallmark of the series). He was a big manho in his mortal life and just can't quite get past this sudden obsession with one woman and the fact that his charming BS doesn't work on Dani.

What a bounty of cheesy goodness!

Everybody and their dog knows I listen to this series because I like the narration. As usual, Robert Petkoff was all out and I love him for it! I just wish the plot would make the narration justice.

The plot in this book differed from the rest of the series - instead of him chasing her, SHE wanted the relationship while he wasn't very crazy about the fated mates business. But after a while, their relationship devolved into a lot of fighting and I didn't see how th

Vampire Murdoch, one of the Wroth brothers, finally finds his mate Daniela the Ice Maiden, but this is one Valkyrie he cannot touch. Since she is part ice fey, if you touch her skin, it burns her. That also means that Murdoch cannot claim her for his own as he cannot bed her nor bite her. These two become frustrated trying to figure out how they are supposed to be together, but can't be together. Is there any way to overcome the ice queen's condition?

I liked this story more than the other vampir

It's official, Murdoch is by far my least favorite of the Wroth brothers. In turn, I wasn't a big fan of Untouchable, Immortals After Dark #8, even though I did like Daniela the Ice Maiden quite a bit.

So, what was my issue with the book? A good portion of it was regurgitated information from the other Wroth brother's books due to multiple jumps in time (to accommodate Danii and her issues). Though it was a different spin on the Vampire Bride mythos, which was appreciated, Murdoch was a great bi

This book was boring. So boring that I played games on my device while I read it to make sure I didn't doze off.

Why was it boring: Murdoch was so not into having a relationship, being blooded, anything. He just wanted to hump Daniela and be on his merry vampire way. But since she's an Ice fey and he couldn't touch her without burning her and causing her agony, he couldn't wham, bam, thank you ma'am her....which made him really irritable and unkind to her. She was nice, but boring...happy to pla

Read it as a part of Deep kiss of winter.
And it brought back sweet memories about the previous IAF. I really enjoy it a lot, and don't let me start talking about the epilog, beyond amazing really.

This was a pretty good addition to the series. I liked both Murdoch and Daniela and was happy that they found a way to be together.

Daniela the Ice Maiden is a Valkyrie that is part Ice fey. She exists at a colder temperature than others and if she overheats she'll die. She also has the issue that if she touches someone, it causes her physical pain. She acts like the lack of touch doesn't bother her but inside she's lonely and wants someone that can touch her desperately.

Murdoch is a

So, before Untouchable, I've read the first seven books in Kresley Cole's Immortal After Dark series. I pretty much knew what to expect from each book in the series; they all are rather similar in plot and ending. Regardless, so far I enjoyed reading each installment.

I can't say the same for Untouchable.

After kept appearing in The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark, #1) by Kresley Cole and No Rest for the Wicked (Immortals After Dark, #3) by Kresley Cole and Dark Needs at Night's Edge (Immortals After Dark, #5) by Kresley Cole finally Murdoch Wroth got his own story with his fated Bride Daniela 'Danii' the Ice Maiden.

Like its seven predecessors, Untouchable's plot is also about the

I greatly enjoyed this story. I was not expecting it to be as long as it was, since it was only part of the book, but it was 250 pages or so. Danii and Murdoch have a huge hurtle in front of them. Daniela is part Iceren and cannot be touched by anyone with a normal body tempature or they will burn here. Murdoch is a "manwhore" who has a bride that he cannot touch without burning her and causing extreme amounts of pain.

This story brings several couples from other IAD books, including all of Murdo

This one actually took place during several of the previous books. I wasn't expecting that. I really liked Danii and the ice fae were an interesting aspect of The Lore. Murdoch might just be my favorite of the Wroth brothers too. I adore IAD and this was a good installment. Such a unique world and Ms. Cole knows how to keep you turning the pages!

I really thought I wasn't going to like this one from some of the reviews. Yes, it was much lighter and not as much story building but the humor and banter were worth it to me. This also makes an audible listen far more enjoyable.

This is a re-listen and I'm sad to say it wasn't as good the 2nd time around. I kept wanting shake both characters into some sense and the overall storyline kept lagging. The narration was superb, which makes me wish the plot was as well.
