“I'm rounding my rating up on this one, because I loved the Kresley Cole story enough on its own for five stars. The Gena Showalter story was a fairly solid four stars.

“*This review is only for the Immortals After Dark section of the book at this time.*
Danii is an intriguing character, and pairing up a woman who can't be touched with a man who is famous for his bouts with women was a very comical and yet frustrating way to go. I like how it told what was going on from their side of things through several of the other books we've already read. You get a new perspective on how events looked outside that particular couple's story. It was great to see the Wroth brothers all together and happy at the end and I hope we see more of them in future books.”

Daniela the Ice Maiden is part Icere, and part Valkyrie. Since she is part ice fae, she cannot touch another (unless they're an ice fae as well), without excruciating pain. Murdoch Wroth is an Estonian Warlord who was once a massive rake. After saving Daniela from assassins, Murdoch learns that Danii is his Bride. But since they can never touch, will their frustration be enough to drive them apart?
Untouchable is a story of utter frustration and sexual desire. It actually takes place a lot earlier than the last few IAD books, and once again with a Wroth brother. It's a novella in the book Deep Kiss of Winter. Even though it's a novella, it's still 300 pages, and well worth the read.
The sexual tension between Danii and Murdoch all but lights the pages on fire, and the sex scenes between the two are scorching. Kresley Cole has, as always, delivered a steamy, passionate couple who make your hearts melt from their pasts, and their possible futures. If you're an IAD fan, be sure to pick this one up, and if you've never read any of the books in the series, be sure to do so, since you're missing out! ”
“Review of Untouchable only.
The timeline is concurrent with the first 5 IAD books and the recaps of the various stories are enjoyable and it is great seeing the details from Murdoch's perspective.
The introduction to the Icere (Ice Fey) is interesting and some of the aspects of the Valkyrie are clearer to me now.
The romance, however, it not the best. Danii and Murdoch's on/off relationship is too angsty and their emotional distance for most of the book is frustrating. Nevertheless, the resolution to the obstacle of Murdoch being unable to touch Danii is brilliant and the lengths he goes to in order to be with her more than compensate for his lack of finesse and "bachelor panic" in the first 3/4s. The epilogue with the four Wroth brothers and their Brides is very endearing.
The ice motif, while unique and beautiful, is not conducive to creating a sense of intimacy and closeness for Danii and Murdoch. Unlike Neomi and Conrad, whose relationship was intense and steamy despite their inability to touch, Danii and Murdoch lack the emotional attachment of the other relationships in the series. ”
“4 STARS "tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time...and a Valkyrie aching to be touched. Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela the Ice Maiden - the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can't be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Soon desperate for closeness, Murdoch and Danii will do anything to have each other. Can they find the key that will finally allow them to slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?" (From Amazon)
I liked this story but felt it should have been a full length novel as it seemed rush in some parts.”
“I liked the Immortals After Dark reference in the second story even though I didn't think that story really went where i wanted it to go or end how I wanted. I really recommend the first story though. Take the rating from the first story, not the second.”Sarah H wrote this review Friday, July 13, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?
