When I first started reading this book, I didn't think it was for me. The first chapter is set in the past and was quite slow. But from the first page of chapter two, I was hooked. I can't think of a single thing I didn't like about this book, and I intend to read the whole collection. The storyline itself is good, it kept me turning the pages. The main character myst, is funny, sassy and a bit of a bitch. She's not one of these characters that just lies down and follows her man like in most paranormal romance stories. ( )

Ho iniziato a leggere questa serie con grandi aspettative, dato che è così popolare. Brusca frenata. Questo primo libro, prequel della serie e romanzo breve, non è stato proprio entusiasmante. Se dovessi scegliere un aggettivo per descriverlo, userei "veloce". Praticamente un treno ad alta velocità sparato verso il "e vissero tutti felici e contenti".

Abbiamo la valchiria Myst, seduttrice e adescatrice numero uno, e Wroth, vampiro guerriero molto prestante. Direbbe quasi da dire: "Ovvio che questi due si metteranno insieme!". E in effetti... Myst è molto divertente, comunque, ed è stata una fortuna altrimenti mi sarei annoiata a morte. Wroth cerca di starle dietro come può, finché lei non si innamora, eccetera, eccetera.

La descrizione del contesto nel quale si svolgono gli eventi è stato rapido e insoddisfacente, ma tuttavia promette bene per il futuro... quindi continuerò a leggere questa serie e vediamo un po' come procede... ( )

The Warlord Wants Forever
3.5 Stars

Synopsis
Once a ruthless warlord and now a general in the rebel vampire army, Nikolai Wroth is shocked to discover that his Bride, the one woman who can make his heart beat again, is the incredibly beautiful but completely merciless Myst the Coveted, a Valkyrie warrior who has devoted her life to destroying vampires. Fortunately or unfortunately, Nikolai stumbles across the means to control Myst but does he want her subjugation or her love?

Review
After reading and enjoying A Hunger Like No Other, I felt that something was missing regarding Nikolai and Myst's backstory. So, I went back and read The Warlord Wants Forever even though I am not a fan of novellas because they are too short and the character development is usually meh. All in all, this does not disappoint but reading Hunger... first probably enhanced my enjoyment.

Nikolai and Myst have an intense love/hate relationship that takes some getting used to but on the whole they each give as good as they get and ultimately deserve each other. Nikolai is too domineering for my taste, and some of his actions are cringe-worthy but his character does learn an important lesson. Myst is also an ambiguous character but once everything about her past is revealed, she becomes very sympathetic. One problem with her characterization is the incongruity between her ferocity and independence and her need to submit to another in order to find true love - this does not resonate well.

The dialogue and humor are perfect in their snarkiness, and the sex scenes are steamy with a capital S but never become gratuitous.

Even though this is a novella, it does not read as one and neither the plot nor the characterization are short changed. I do, however, recommend that it be read by those who have already begun the Immortals After Dark books as I would not consider it a good introduction to the series.

Not sure. I have found the book, which is more like a novella or prequel absolutely uninteresting. There was nothing in the story line or characters or even the world built that captured me. Since the series has consistent reviews 4 and up, i will try again at a later time. As of Jan 2012 it was one of the most boring books i have read. ( )
