Sweet Ruin by Kresley Cole ~T's Review~

What an incredibly sweet departure from the IAD series! However, it’s still very much immersed in the world of Immortals; we are thrust into a bit of a side-story that ultimately will be entwined into the fabric that‘s already spun by Kresley Cole.

I found orphan Josephine to be naïve, yet massively endearing. She is, however, incredibly confused about creatures that are popping up in the world she has made for herself. She broke my heart in so many ways and absolutely thrilled me in others. There is a bit of a role reversal in her character. She KNOWS who her mate is. She will get him and make him understand that fate has already decided what he seemingly refuses to see. She does this in brash, bold ways, but with a subtle sweetness that has made her one of my absolute favorites in the series.

And then comes Rune, a master of seduction and powerful archer. As soon as he scents Jo he knows something is different. She is something rare and beautiful to behold. She has just taken his forbidden blood and survived, which moves Rune to act, ponder, and chase this creature like he has never done with another before her.

So many surprises, plot twists, and reveals happen in Sweet Ruin that any reader and fan of the series will be thrilled with this latest installment.

5 Lethally addicted and sultry stars!

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. Her baby brother Thaddeus was as perfect as she was flawed; protecting him became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo’s transition from angry girl…to would-be superhero…to enchanting, ruthless villain.

A lethally sensual enforcer on a mission

A threat to the Møriør has brought archer Rune the Baneblood to the mortal realm to slay the oldest living Valkyrie. Whether by bow or in bed, he never fails to eliminate his target. Yet before he can strike, he encounters a vampiric creature whose beauty conceals a black heart. With one bite, she pierces him with aching pleasure, taking 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. Despite his millennia of sexual conquests, he can’t ignore the unfamiliar longing she arouses deep within him. 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.
