Kresley Cole - Lothaire

Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore's most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde's crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness -- until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.
Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she'd be convicted of murder -- or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month's time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.
Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millenniaold blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?

Comment: Finally Lothaire arrived and I got my hands on it right away.
Once again Kresley Cole wrote a great story, full of mythology and supernatural intrigues and romance and I loved the book.
After so many years, Lothaire is close to his endgame, the conclusion of his plots and schemes, he'll be able to conquer the Horde and for that to hapen he will only need a Bride, his evil queen. However she is trapped in a mrotal's body and the only way to free her is to kill the host by extinguishing her soul. Elizabeth Pierce, a young woman who's been in prison and in the death row doesn't like the idea and considereing she's got as much control of her body as the evil queen, she wants to be the one to Lothaire isn't as repulsive as he?

I could say many things about every detail but I'm still savouring the book and also mourning it because once I finished, that feeling of eagerness and having something new is gone. Still, it's abook I liked a lot, not only because of the story itself but mainly because it's part of a series I love, it's full of myhtological creatures I love seeing so many different beings as protagonists and things happening.
The story focus on Lothaire of course and we se parts of his past and where he came from in terms of eprosnality. I liekd the fact he wasn't redemed or made good in this book. He's still the same sarcastic, vicious person, but he gained some sort of "humanity" if I can say so, because he has a Bride. She makes him want things, and feel things and for that only he would have to change.
His Bride...I won't say, but she's perfect for him and in the context the author created she is the one.
I liekd the end, how things worked out for Lothaire, considering his difficulties during the book and most of al, I was surpried by a revelation too. Can't wait to see it developed in future books. Plus, we saw a side of Nix we havan't before..her vulnerability, which is good, she's not just a crazy valkyrie, she has an agenda and controls a lot of things but she's not perfect in her powers and that makes her priceless as a character because now we want her to be happy too, more than before.
This book has a lot of pages, but I managed to read it quite when this happens, this feeling of not having enough...
It was a great book.
