1.5 “I Almost Did Not Finish” Stars!!
Declan Chase can go Suck a Dick!!
What can I say? I hated the Hero. Hated him!!!
The author tried to redeem him in the final 40 pages which was too little too late because I hated him for the first 400 pages.
I had to make myself finish this book. Too much repetition of events from the previous book. Freakin Torture!! This book gets 2 stars because Kresley Cole is a talented writer and it hurts me to give her a 1 star.
Regin the Radiant
I just HATED Chase. Which
it was amazing
Aidan the Fierce (powerful Berserker) or Declan Chase (hateful human) and Regin the Radiant (half Valkyrie/half Radiant One)
“Come on, Chase.”
“Tell me, if I take you to my room and put you in my bed, what do you think would happen?”
“I can draw you a diagram. Hint: I’m slot B, and you’re tab A.”
“I mean the ultimate outcome. Do you think I’ll free you if you please me enough? You’re not the first detrus who’s tried to whore for her freedom.”
“Whore for my freedom?” She laughed again. “What if I just

I don’t know how much more I can gush about this series, but I’ll try. Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark is one of my three favorite paranormal series, the others being J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series. I guess the reason I love these series sooo much is because of the things they all have in common–excellent writing displaying the authors’ vivid imaginations, fantastic storytelling skills that have you either laughing at the characters’
In Dreams of a Dark Warrior, I just fell in love with the sexy Viking Aidan the Fierce, and then, slowly but surely, with one of his reincarnations– the deeply troubled, sexy (and tortured) Celt, Declan Chase. Oh wow oh wow…the mortal berserker, Declan (or Chase, as he’s referred to in the story) starts out as this evil guy looking to exterminate the creatures of the Lore (including the heroine, Regin the Radiant) for The Order. He runs this lab on a remote south Pacific island and he and his mortal soldiers have managed to capture dozens of Loreans (Valkyries, vampires, witches, Lykae, berserkers, etc.) to study and to ultimately destroy them…to rid the world of this detrus. This is Declan’s whole life–to exact revenge on all immortals for what a group of evil Neoptera did (in a truly horrifying scene) to a teenage Declan and his family. But when he captures and imprisons the beautiful blonde Valkyrie Regin, there’s just something about her that makes him…want. And for Regin, it doesn’t take long for her to realize that Declan is the reincarnation of her lost love Aidan, who was murdered before they could wed, and reborn time and again (4 or 5? times). But each time Aidan is reborn and Regin reunites with him disaster happens when Aidan regains his ‘memories’–and he is doomed to die. Will Regin take the chance again of reuniting with the only man she is destined to love…if it means she will lose him again?
There’s not much about this one that I didn’t love. It does start out a bit confusing if you haven’t read (or remember) the previous book (Demon from the Dark) which has the same basic timeline as this book. These books must be read in order (preferably close together) or you will have no idea what’s going on! Anyway, it didn’t take long for me to lose myself into KC’s wonderful world of the Lore. When I first started reading this series, I’ll admit that the Valkyrie annoyed me a bit…but now I just love them! I love their snarky humor…and Nix?…she is one crazy, crafty lady! (Mike Rowe, again?) Her comments, her scenes…they just make me laugh. When is she going to get her own book? And who could possibly be strong enough to compete with her?
KC gives plenty of backstory–of course we know good-time prankster girl Regin from previous books, and for the scarred-inside-and-out hero Declan Chase, (view spoiler)[from his days on the streets of Belfast as a heroin junkie, to his agonizing torture at the hands of the Neoptera, to his solitary life commanding his own army of mortals intent on ridding the world of all creatures inhuman, (hide spoiler)] KC leaves out no details, so we know exactly where Chase is coming from, we understand his reasoning, and we sympathize with him, even though he’s bound and determined to destroy our heroine and her immortal friends (and some enemies). And speaking of friends–I loved the scenes that included her “cellmates”: the Fey Natalya and the ‘halfling’ high-school kid Thad, and her Berserker protector, Brandr. And the ‘is-he-evil-or-isn’t-he’ vampire Lothaire? I want to see more of this evil/funny bad boy!
The heat level? Hot at first–you get to see Aidan and a young Regin in action, but it’s brief, but sweet and intense. But after that there’s a lull…until Chase and Regin feel their connection…and Regin uses that connection to lure Chase (with the hopes of escaping her prison). The ‘Regin-takes-a-bath’ scene….simmering hot. And when Regin and Chase finally get together (with some literal mud-slinging and physical violence)–hot! Chapters 53 and 54…ahhh, the heat!
“Yours, everything I am…yours.”
What an outstanding escape. If you like stories with plenty of adventure, humor, and some mad lovin’, you’re going to love this one. And if you haven’t read this series yet (what are you waiting for?), please start at the beginning. There’s not a bad one in the bunch (IMO), and it won’t be long before you’re all caught up. These books are like potato chips–you can’t read just one–you’ll want to consume the whole bag of them! Another winner for Kresley Cole–5 big stars!
P.S.: One teeny, tiny disappointment: I thought we would get to read about all of Aidan’s reincarnations and his hookups with Regin. I guess there’s only so many pages to go around, and KC did save the best love scenes for Regin and Chase, so I’m not too disappointed.:)
