Publisher's Summary

The second installment in Kresley Cole’s best-selling steamy Immortals After Dark series is now available on audio for the first time!

Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire - a nightmare in his mind - against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live - until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.

When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow - accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings - particularly lust - emerge multiplied. For the first time, she’s unable to complete a kill.

The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity - as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world - to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she’s falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?

    Story
    "Better than the 1st!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I think this series is fantastic and the second book is even better than the first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sebastian and Kaderin of course but I also think Keaden is hysterical.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the first book in this immortal series. He is great. The accents are perfect and make you want to listen for hours. His accented growls of the male characters are toe curling fun. The females are a bit breathy at times, more in the first book but he makes up for it in the second. The main females voice is perfect this time around.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I laughed out loud and a few different parts defintely made me cry. This story is so passionate and agonizing, it is hard to stop and take a break.


    Any additional comments?

    As I said, I enjoyed the first book of this series but I enjoyed the second one so much more. I will reread this many times. Sebastian and Kaderins story is awesome. They both have histories that make you root for them and curse them at times. They are passionate and fierce. There is angst and agony throughout but it is not so dramatic that it overwhelmes. This book also introduces many other lore species through the competition. I love the glimpes you get, both funny and intriguing. Lastly, I love the Amazing Race like scavenger hunt in this story. It brings the characters to the most interesting places, puts them against complex competitors and adds so many levels of intensity to this (already) high octane story. It is fast paced, melt in your seat, can't wait to see what happens next fun. Can't wait to continue on with the series. Cole is quickly becoming a new fav of mine.

    Story
    "Sexy Vampire book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. If you like paranormal romance this book is first rate.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sexual tension between Sabastian and his "bride".


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Kad admits that she loves Sabastian.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, sadly time did not allow for that.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful second installment in the Imortals after Dark series. Well written with a great ending it read sure from beginning to end. Robert Petkoff is a wonderful narrator. He could read the yellow pages and I would listen. Worth the price of admission for sure.

    "Better than Book One"

    3.5 stars for this one as well. I liked Kaderin more than Emmaline, but then not quite as much as Myst. I also liked that this one was a little bit more action oriented with the Hie (an immortal version of the Amazing Race) as the challenge, sending them around the world on a violent scavenger hunt. When Sebastian wasn't being Mr. Wimpy, then he was pretty awesome leading man. Though at times, it kind of felt like reading about the two class nerds who got hot and then fell in love with each other. Love Potion #9...anyone??? anyone???

    "Kresley Cole is a New Favorite Author!"

    The Immortals After Dark series got me totally hooked on Kresley Cole. Her books are hot and the stories very interesting. Robert Petkoff is an awesome narrator. He makes the characters come to life. The book of Sebastian and Kaderin was great - very interesting - I could not stop listening. I can't wait for the next book!

    "The narrator is FANTASTIC!"
    What made the experience of listening to No Rest for the Wicked the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator's change of characters. He does it so well, along with the accents.
    He is very clear and gives life to the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Rest for the Wicked?

    No particular part. The whole book is an awesome experience


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Personality!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not into movies so I have nothing to contribute here. Sorry!


    Any additional comments?

    Now when looking for a book to listen to, I search for the narrator rather than the book!
    I am hoping the narrator is able to give life to the book because they enjoyed the book as well.

    Story
    "Wickedly Hot"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would. The story is original, considering how many pararomanices are out there. Valkaries aren't supposed to fall in love, but this one did and did hard. It's nice to see her knocked off her foundation by the hero.


    What other book might you compare No Rest for the Wicked to and why?

    Kresely Cole has a whole series with the Valkaries. This is the second book in that series and it's completely different from the first one. I would say this one's like Dark Lover by J.R Ward, in terms of character strength and development. As far as dealing with preternatural elements and making them unique, I would compare that attribute to Deveil May Cry by Sherrilyn Kenyon.


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents. I love the accents. There's nothing like it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but it's a pivital part of the book and I won't ruin it for the rest of you. It's at the end and there's a lot of revealation/acceptance of the main characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep an ice pack ready. You'll need it for the steamy love scenes and the heavy fight scenes.

    "Nice!"
    If you could sum up No Rest for the Wicked in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, Free, and well...Wicked :) . No seriously, this series has been very fun to read. If you are a fan of Gena Showalter, Shelly Laurenston, Christine Warren, etc, this is a series for you. It has the classic vampire/werewolf/shapeshifter whatever fun but with a twist that is all Kresley Cole.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I like best about this story and in all the rest of this series is that Kresley Cole makes the situation between the characters difficult. All romance has this but this series really has a focus on this, or at least it seemed so to me. There is a real struggle as there are metaphorically brick walls, cliffs, sometime chasms between the two main characters and they have to work to be together and Kresley Cole ties it all together very well in such a way as it is entertaining (sometimes hilarious) but not too frustrating for the reader.
    The world building is also well done. I really like the different dynamics between the characters and and how they mix with others in the series.
    No rest for the Wicked is a story between a vampire and a valkyrie and the two do not mix very well. Kaderin the Cold Hearted has a real hatred for them as she has been at war with them for a millennium plus and they also killed her family. She hasn't felt anything since hence the cold hearted part. Sebastian is a vampire who was turned against his will and pretty much hates what he is....he also isn't a real fan of the other creatures of the lore either. Enter a contest that only happens every couple of hundred of years and a major prize at the end that both want and everyone (vampire, werewolf, witches, demons oh my!)is out to maim or kill each other...and you have a set up that had me either LMAO or cringing in sympathy. Have fun.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope, but I have been listening to audio books for more than 20 years. He hit the big three: tone, character and "didn't irritate". If I had a complaint it was when he did womans voices....need a little work there.
