Deep Kiss of Winter (Immortals After Dark #8)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR KRESLEY COLE delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time . . . and a Valkyrie aching for his touch.
Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela—the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and...more
Untouchable - Kresley Cole: 4 stars
This story is like an Immortals After Dark-megamix! Except for the Woede, we see (or hear about) just about everyone in the series! And it was so much fun to catch up.
In Untouchable we witness Murdoch “man-whore” Wroth and Danielle the Ice Maiden (and Valkyrie) fall in love. People who’ve never read a book of the IAD-series might not like the story. The...more
I liked Deep Kiss of Winter, the 8th book in the Immortal After Dark series, but I didn't love it. (FYI: Deep Kiss of Winter is actually a novella that has been included in an anthology.) There was just too much contention andvacillating emotions between the two main characters, Murdock and Daniela, for me to fully enjoy or connect with their love story. I understand why it was such a difficult road to their happily-ever-after, since they could not physically touch each other thr...more
Untouchable by Kresley Cole: (5 stars)
(Immortals After Dark, #8)
Solid 5 stars! This has got to be my FAVORITE book in the series so far. I think, mainly because it literally spans from the very first short story that started the Immortals After Dark Series, The Warlord Wants Forever to the very latest in the series at the time (#7). It's so cool to see the stories of Nikoli and Myst, then Sebastia...more
I really enjoyed this. This is the 8th story in the Immortals After Dark series. It is about Murdoch Wroth, a.k.a "The Manwhore” (this really irks him LOL), one of the Wroth vampire brothers, and Daniela the Ice Maiden, the half Valkyrie, half ice fey. I really felt for Daniela whose Iceren blood means she cannot be touched as it burns her and causes her great pain....more
At the risk of sounding like a broken record regarding this series...I loved this book! Yes, when it comes to paranormal romances, I have a soft spot in my heart for vampires, so it stands to reason that I would enjoy this story about renowned sexy rake Murdoch Wroth (last of the unattached Wroth vampires) and his 'Bride', the beautiful Daniela the Ice Maiden. I won't get into the plot, since there's a nice synopsis that goes with th...more

OMG, this story was amazing. I absolutely adore it,couldn't put it down for even a single second. I was missing this series terrible, only I hadn't realized it until I got to read another book in this terrific series again.
I loved this story. Both characters were amazing and perfect for each other. The hole time I was going nuts because they could not be together but I got so thrilled once they did.
But what I loved the most is the series as a whole. T...more
First of all, I have not read Gena Showalter's story yet. This review is only for Kresley Cole's novella, Untouchable. Second, I am an idiot. I did not realize as I was clicking that fun little button for primetime customers at Amazon that this was a freakin' hardcover. So, I am doubly irked that I did not like this story, and I paid out the wazoo for it.
Okay, I am seriously disappointed. Lots of folks loved this story, and I was all jazzed up. I did not love KC's las...more
My review is only for "Untouchable" by Kresley Cole.
The main part of the story covers the events of the “Immortals After Dark” series from the first novella, “The Warlord Wants Forever” to the end of the 5th book, “Dark Needs at Night’s Edge”.
“The Warlord Wants Forever” is the story of Nikolai and Myst. Murdoch and Nikola...more
Untouchable is the 8th book in Kresley Cole's Iad series and is the story of Daniela and Murdoch Wroth
Daniela the Ice Maiden was a Valkyrie and part ice fey so she could only be touched by her own people or she would feel major pain. Murdoch Wroth was a vampire in the Forbearer Army and had been blooded by Daniela but how was he to claim her if he couldn't touch her?
The thing that I really loved about this was that though Murdoch was a...more
I found the mythology in Untouchable to be interesting. The story combined lore from the worlds of the fae, vampires, Valkyrie, demons, and more. I learned things about mythical creatures that I hadn't known before, and I thought the story was extremely well-research...more
Updated since I have now read the Showalter entry, and I would go 3.5 stars now.
Murdock Wroth is a General in the Vampire Forebearer army. As less-than-welcome members of the Lore, the Forebearers live their lives without drinking directly from a human source, and battle their evil brethren, the Horde. After...more
First of all, lets talk about how awesome "Untouchable" was. I liked Murdoch before I read this story, because the Wroth brother are four times hot! But, I didn't love him as much as Nikolai (swoon), Conrad (thud), and Sebastian (sigh). I'm not fond of womanizers. But somehow, I fell in love with Murdoch. I could see that his fear...more
Gena Showalter "Tempt Me Eternally": This one on the other hand seemed forced. Aleaha Love is colorful and feisty, but come on: What she did...more
Murdock and Danii story. Kinda of like Bad Moon rising by Kenyon going back through a few of the other books But this one is a lot better Cole keeps up and I didnt get the feel of story lines being repeated as in Bad Moon Rising..
I Really like Danii at times I felt sorry for both Murdock and Danii.. I think Cole done a great job with this story.
I will be back to rate this whole book when I get Alien Huntress done I like reading for start to finish i...more
Già il volume precedente della Cole è stato orrendo, dal punto di vista della tr...more
Traduzione atroce e ho detto tutto. Nonostante rileggessi più volte la stessa riga nella vana speranza di capirci qualcosa. E così la storia di Danii e Murdoch mi ha lasciata confusa, insoddisfatta e irritata, già non mi ispirava come coppia XD Bello comunque rivedere tutti gli eventi degli ultimi libri da un altro punto di vista e l'epilogo con tutti i fratelli Wroth accasati (compresi i miei amati Neomi e Con <3)
Per sempre la mia tentazione di Gena Showalter
Anche se viene spacciato per un ulteriore volume della serie Gli Immortali, questo libro contiene in realtà due romanzi brevi di due scrittrici diverse.
Il primo, di Kresley Cole, è in effetti dedicato alle pene d’amore del quarto dei fratelloni vampiri Wroth, quel Murdoch che era già apparso in altri episodi e che ora finalmente conosciamo meglio, ripercorrendo tutte le vicende precedenti dal suo punto di vista.
Mentre i fratelli si sono fatti un nome nel Lor...more
Daniela the Ice Maiden cannot be touched unless they are Icere, as she is an Icere Valkyrie; but they hunt her because she threatens the Icere King's throne - which she doesn't want. Murdoch just helped his brother, Nikolai, to find his Mist, so he takes off to find another Valkyrie to get information from - and finds Daniela. She is his Bride, but he cannot touch her - to do so would be excruciating for her.
No specific quotes really stood out, though I enjoyed the...more

If you’ve been following the series, then you will recognize that the events in this novel begin during the sequence of events that take place No Rest for the Wi...more

“I was alive back then. And all the Lore heard about the ruthless warlord brothers from Estonia. The general, the scholar, the enigma, and . . . the manwhore.”
