Lothaire Review

  • Best in the Series!

    By Clare-Bunny
    Having read all of Kresley Cole's IAD books, this one still stands out to me as the best. Lothaire is easily the most complicated of the leading males from this series, but I would be disappointed with anything less. Given that he is "evil", his romance can't be easy or simple. He has the greatest obstacle to overcome - his selfish, arrogant personality. But he does so spectacularly, eventually making huge sacrifices for his bride after a really rocky road. He is my favorite character and I love his appearances throughout other books in this series. And Elizabeth is easily one of the strongest heroines in the series. She stands out from the others as being cunning and rational - she doesn't have the temper tantrums that seem common with with many of the characters in these books. She makes plans and sees them through even against the most difficult odds. She's practical and brave. The fact that she has the humblest origins of any of the heroines is just the icing on the cake. Can't give this book enough praise.

    I loved Lothaire. The depth of his mind was facinating. Please, don't stop the series here. What happens to Nix? There are so many characters we have met along the way. Please tell us their stories, as well.
  • Love it!

    Like the intervention of Nix. When will her story come to life? Well developed characters, nice to see what was up with the mysterious Lothaire. Really liked the charactor combination of really old vamp and mountain girl.
  • Best I've read in years!
