I have a confession to make. I didn't think this book would live up to my expectations, secretly, I started reading this expecting it to disappoint me. How could it not? Lothaire the Enemy of Old has been in these books from the beginning, we have had 11 books building his character up, making us adore and worship him despite the fact that he is undeniably evil and insane and would happily murder all our other favourite characters. Yet still we long for a happy ending for him, Kresley Cole has us on in her thrall!

I figure if you have read this book, or are about to, then you don't really need a synopsis of what is happening, you know who Lothaire is and I don't want to give anything away that will ruin it for you. If you haven't started this series then you need to read: The Warlord Wants Forever or A Hunger Like No Other first and work your way through this fabulous series.

Another confession, showing my dire lack of faith in the almight Kresley Cole, is that I couldn't think of female that would match Lothaire, perhaps, apart from Nix, but yet again I was gladly proved incorrect, Elizabeth Peirce (Ellie to her friends) was a great fit. Good to his bad, sane to his insane, happy to his misery... you couldn't help but like her. As for Lothaire, there is so much more to him then being the insane bad guy, his Endgame comes into focus and we begin to see a different side to him, still evil ofcourse, but I can't seem to help loving the bad boys. And his arrogance, how can something so damn annoying if it were real, be so damn sexy?!

Like all the other books in this series, this was sexy (spare knickers required), funny and full of unforgettable characters. One of the best things about Kresley Cole's books are that the heroines are just as good as the heroes, something I have found to be rare in romance, which only makes me feel a little guilty now that I have poached Lothaire to be in my harem!

p.s. Don't worry Lachlain, you are still my favourite!

Quotes I Loved

"Yes, you. An ignorant mortal Kmart checkout girl." He took the sharpest knife from his place setting, absently turning it between his left thumb and forefinger.

"Kmart? I should've been so lucky. Those jobs were hard to come by. I worked at my uncle's outfitter hop."

"Then you're even worse. You're an outfitter checkout girl with aspirations for Kmart."


*****

"Everything you've ever dreamed is real," Lothaire said. "Every creature thought to be myth. We call our world the Lore. And for the record, Mothman's a fuckwit."

*****

"You are so maieve, it physically aggrieves me."

*****

"First of all I'm not narcissitic." When she opened her lips to argue he said, "I know Narkissos of Thespiae- while we might share traits, i cam first so he's Lothairistic, not the other way round."

*****

"And how is it that you could possibly pity me?"

"I'm twenty-four years old. I've spent more then twenty percent of my life on death row. And I've still known more happiness in my short life than you have in your unending one."


*****

Has anything really changed?" (Ellie)

"I've learned I need to consult you in matters, lest you decapitate me."

*****

"What is this? Be like you were with me the oher times! When you melted for me."

"That was before I fully understood what a nasty piece of work you are."

"Because of a few shifter beheadings? Come on, Lizvetta, it's not as if I went round cock slapping gnomes."

Laura the Highland Hussy lol! do you know if it's releasing hard cover? that's what GR has listed


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) I don't know, I just assumed it would be like the rest of them, but I guess it must be, that's anoying! It is going to be a completely different size! My book OCD is going in overdrive at the moment!


Kirsty~Vhixen YES!! Kresleys email said it would be released in hardcover first this time. it's why i had such a rant about it...now i have to buy the ebook...and wait almost a year so i can buy the book to match the others!! LOL...that looks more like our UK covers for IAD Suz...so i'm guessing it'll be this cover for us!! YAY


Laura the Highland Hussy Ugh. Hello ebook. I don't like hc


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Maybe she will just do one cover for both UK and US! I hope so I don't wanna be disappointed and get a crappy SOokie esque cover...again!

Yeah I could get an ebook, but I know I am just gonna get the HB! As much as I don't like them I like to have them all straight away!


~Jessica~I'm a Hoodie Ninja~ oh I like this cover better than the one the other girls are reading,


Benita Vehnom  Ruiz Nope sorry if Paul was on this cover it would look good. lol


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Lol! I am not sure which one I like most, I like the colours of this one and although Paul is sexy, I dunno, he isn't quite how I imagined Lothaire.


Kimberly I really like the other cover but I know what ya mean. He just doesn't quiet fit my vision of him either, nor does this one! But the book was AWESOME!!! I really am feeling so sorry for poor Nixie! She needs her man!!!


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) I know, I can't wait for Nix's book! I really want to know who her HEA is going to be!


Aly is so frigging bored I love your review, and how could you doubt the genius of KC? :O

A friend of mine said Lothaire reminds him of Dante from the game Devil May Cry. I just added pics :D


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Lol! I know, I will never do it again!

Ahhh, that's a good comparison, but Dante always makes me think of Torin from LOTU!


Aly is so frigging bored Hmm... I don't know... Haven't seen the show or played the game, but the pics google provided reminded me ore of Lothaire :D [without the guns that is]


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) See I always think Torin, probably cos when I was scouting pics for characters, when I was looking for Torin, Dante came up!

:)) you're right, if I started like that I couldn't change my mind either


Spoiler Whore but you can call me Amanda I love the one liners. They cracked me up!


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Me too! I loved Loathire's humour, although half the time he didn't realize it was funny


Aly is so frigging bored Suzanne aka The Wench ~Satin Seductress~ wrote: "Me too! I loved Loathire's humour, although half the time he didn't realize it was funny"

That's what made it even funnier, for me at least :D


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Yeah I agree, when he is being unbelievably arrogant, so hilarious, in real life I would want to slap him, but so funny when it is someone else LOL!


Aly is so frigging bored Exactly my reaction :))


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) I think most heroes are like that though, although if I found my RL Lachlain wondering around, arrogant or not MINE! I can get get ear muffs if it gets too bad lol


Aly is so frigging bored Oh yes, I would so not pass him, for anything in the world :D If he gave me everything I wanted and always cared what I had to say I would overlook the arrogance and chest-beating :D


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Me too, I would be all over it lol who is your fave in the series so far? I am thinking Lothaire judging by the name lol!


Aly is so frigging bored You thought so well :D Before him it was Rydstorm and Nicholai on #1 and #2 was Sebastian :D


Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog) Oh Ryd *swoon* he is in my #2 spot with Conrad Wroth with Lachlain being #1. Love the Lykae they are my favourite race
