The Warlord Wants Forever | [Kresley Cole]

The Warlord Wants Forever

Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole makes her audio debut with the first title in her Immortals After Dark series.

Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature.

Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress who can “make you want her even as she’s killing you.” She has devoted her life to protecting an ancient, powerful jewel and to fighting the vampires, and she now sees a way to torment one - for with Wroth’s heartbeat comes consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her.

She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen the jewel which commands her, giving him absolute power over her. While he possesses it, he can make her do anything, and he plans to in order for her to experience firsthand the agonizing, unending lust she’d purposely subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Wroth realizes he wants more from her and frees her, will she come back to him?

    "Great Story as always - Bad Narration"

    Narrators if you want to know how to narrate correctly with two voices, listen to one of Christine Feehan's audio books with two narrators. Female does ALL female voices no matter if it's in hero's point of view. Male does ALL male voices no matter if it's in heroine's point of view. Get a clue!

    I almost didn't buy this because of the bad reviews. The narration was better than I was led to believe. I've heard worse!
    At least the character's voices weren't mindless drones.

    Story
    "Don't waste $ or time. Start with Hunger book"

    I love Krestley Cole. But this audiobook is terrible. It takes is a shorter story about a Vampire and a Valkyri- two races that hate one another. It is a very poor example of the writer's talent, and also a bad narration duo. The bedroom scenes were numerous, which doesnt bother me, but they dragged on. The male reader sounds like he's Count Chocula. It's just not good when he starts panting like the Sesame Street "counting Count".

    I would read a summary on GoodReads or Amazon, then start the series with Hunger Like No Other, which is a spectacular audiobook.

    This book is not a necessary to enjoy the series. If you've never read K.C, this might keep you from her work altogether. Skip this and read the rest!! :)

    "freaking good"

    Being that this book was short, I think the book was dammed good. Luved the story line of feuding species and the forbiden friut concept. The sexual contant of the story was great. Again let me point out, for not being a long book.

    Story
    "Skip this one, go to the next book in the series!"

    This book is boring compared to the other stories in the series. They are longer and more detailed. The series is simply fantastic! This one is short and the story is all rushed.
    Oh, and the narrators in this book don't compare to the reader (Robert) of all the other books. He is an AMAZING narrator.

    Trust me that you don't have to read this one to know what is going on in the other books in the series. This one could totally be dropped and the world (or should I say lore) would never miss it!

    To sum up: Skip it, but not the others!

    Story
    "Alpha male and Immortal! OMG, good stuff!"
    Would you listen to The Warlord Wants Forever again? Why?

    This being the second time listening to this series. Well, yes, I would listen to this a second time. LOL


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love the supernatural, humor, alpha males, strong women who can handle the alpha males, and all of the valkyrie.


    What does Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators bring this to life. There's nothing like listening to a good book and good narrators at work. Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar have brought this story to life for sure.


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

    Valkyrie Rules!


    Any additional comments?

    What can you say about one of the best Vampire, Lykae, etc. series out there. I want more!

    "Other stories in series are way better."

    I'm glad I didn't start with this book. It was defiantly not as good as the other books in this series, I recommend starting with A Hunger Like No Other. I like Kaderin/Sebastian's and Maraketa/Bowen's stories the best. This book did have some questionable sex scenes that was on the verge of rape that was a turn off for me, but Myst loved it so I guess to each her own. I didn't think the narrators where that bad, but I think they should have just stuck with the male voice. I am not a fan of duel narration.

    "Narration is terrible"
    If you’ve listened to books by Kresley Cole before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to almost every single book by Kresley Cole and I have to say how disappointing this narration was. I'm not sure why Robert Petkoff didn't narrate this book but it's a shame because his narration is amazing.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar ’s performances?

    NO! The male narrator was not too bad but the female narrator was terrible. She didn't even really try to change her voice when speaking all the different female voices. It seemed rather lazy on her behalf.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom. I am sure I would have enjoyed the book more if the female narrator wasn't a part of it. I would have really enjoyed it if Robert Petkoff narrated it.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole reason why I buy audio books is for the performance. I just wasnt feeling these narrators. I don't mean to be rude, I truly do not, but I just wish they would have stuck with Robert Petkoff. His characters come to life.

    "The storyline is great but"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book over the audiobook. This is the first audiobook done so the performance is a little off.


    What other book might you compare The Warlord Wants Forever to and why?

    "No rest for the Wicked'"very entertaining and adventurous. Think Amazing Race with supernatural beings.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar ?

    Juanita Parker would work in this series. She has a great range; you forget that there is only one person doing the narration.


    Was The Warlord Wants Forever worth the listening time?

    Somewhat, just because it brings the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the first half of this series, it is fun, quirky and passionate. Definitely a good series.

    "Great book not so great narrators"
    Where does The Warlord Wants Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high as I adore all of Kresley Coles books but really would have preffered if Rpobert Petkoff had narrated this one as well


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Warlord Wants Forever?

    Hmmmm to many good bits to chose!


    Have you listened to any of Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    All of Kresleys books make you laugh, moan and sometimes cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Kresleys books hold the right amount of passion, humour and action for my liking. I love the fantasy world she has created in these books and the way they tye together so well. Brilliant books and I can't wait for more!
