Review: Sweet Ruin by Kresley Cole

An immortal assassin is caught between desire and duty in this sizzling new novel from Kresley Cole’s #1 New York Times bestselling Immortals After Dark series.

A foundling raised in a world of humans
Growing up, orphaned Josephine didn’t know who or what she was—just that she was “bad,” an outcast with strange powers. Protecting her baby brother Thaddeus became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo’s transition from angry girl…to would-be superhero…to enchanting villain.

A lethally sensual enforcer on a mission
Whether by bow or in bed, archer Rune the Baneblood never fails to eliminate his target. In his sights: the oldest living Valkyrie. Yet before he can strike, he encounters a vampiric creature whose beauty mesmerizes him. With one bite, she pierces him with aching pleasure, stealing his forbidden blood—and jeopardizing the secrets of his brethren.

A boundless passion that will lead to sweet ruin…
Could this exquisite female be a spy sent by the very Valkyrie he hunts? Rune knows he must not trust Josephine, yet he’s unable to turn her away. When Jo betrays the identity of the one man she will die to protect, she and Rune become locked in a treacherous battle of wills that pits ultimate loyalty against unbridled lust.

I must say after the last book in this series I was a little hesitate to read this one. But Ms. Cole restored my faith with this one. I liked that we learn about Josephine as she does and that this book brings a whole new cast of players to this series. Rune and his compatriots are going to be an interesting addition to these stories. . I am most looking forward to see how this plays out and am hoping to get Nix's story but sincerely hoping that that won't be the end of this series.. I've been reading these stories for almost as long as they've been out and thinking about the end is bittersweet.. But we aren't there yet. I can't wait to see what else the Accession holds in the coming stories.

This book has it all action, adventure, love and smexy times. This was a darn enjoyable read and i am so looking forward to next read and am impatient for it. I give this one 5 stars and I bought it with my own money.
