Sheep Book Review: Sweet Ruin (Immortals After Dark book 16) by Kresley Cole

Paranormal Romance
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.

Many of the new Sheep readers may not know me. You may not know my love/obsession for Mrs. Kresley Cole. You may not know that I go to bed dreaming of about these characters. I imagine, with every single vampire fiber of my undead being, that they are real. Flesh and blood friends of mine from the Lore. THIS is my love for the IAD series. THIS is my love for the talented brain that sits inside Mrs. Coles wonderful head. Creepy? Yeah, ok. Do I care? Uhhhh, no.

Sweet Ruin is another megahit from the master of all things PNR who's name, if you don't know by now, is Mrs. Cole. Rune is our smexy leading man this go around and I was so frelin worried how his journey would unfold. He's kinda sorta (sure is) a man whore. Just a tad. But underneath all that nymph sex party fun there has to be a heart of gold? Right? Or in this case black blood. You really want to hope so, because as a writer that's what my demigoddess Cole does. She makes you want to hope for a better future for her characters. You cheer with them, drink at demon bars with them, fight alongside Nix, bleed with them, and cry when they are emotionally or physically destroyed. It's a damn fun ride!

Jo floats into the scene like a badass comic hero, kicking butts and forgetting names. She's all kinds of amazing chaotic glory to read about. I loved her. Her unstoppable strength, take no shit from a man and never give up f*** you attitude. If we could all strive to be more like Jo the world might just be a funner and more snarky amazing place! So when Jo and Rune meet up, it's explosive on the richter scale and wild. The passion dial is turned all the way up! But can this man-whore ever stop?

Tons of glorious action take you on that wonderful magical hard-hitting ride that only Cole can create. There is no PNR writer like this lady. You can try and replicate her in 10Forward but it wont ever be the same damn thing. Qapla! Yes, I'm on her lady nuts and don't care a wink.

Want to read the best PNR series in the history of...ever? You know you do. Get this one and then get all the rest!
