    Cannot wait!!

    I haven't read this book, but I love everything that Kresley Cole has written and Lothaire is one of my favorite characters in her IAD series. If you haven't read them yet, start now so that when Lothaire comes out, you'll be all caught up. You're welcome.

    Kresley doesnt dissapoint !!

    The book is everything we expected out of Kelsey to make Lothaire be. He’s tough, rough and merciless ( or is he ?? )
    I am in page 300 and I tell you, I love it – she based the story in the two of them, like she didn’t derail like other times, when other factors are in play, I mean of course they are, the thrones, the fact that he is royalty and she’s a mere vulgar, uneducated hillbilly woman, but is more a one on one thing. Is a second favorite ( after Demon from the Dark )
    Sigh – it was 3AM in the morning, my own Lothaire kept tossing next to me in bed and every hour he would growl at me, can we turn the light out now ?? and I kept begging, 5 more minutes. I think that’s why I like Kresley’s books so much, these macho characters of her, they are tough and rough but a sweetie pie inside.

    Love you Kresley :D keep them coming lol
    Nat.

    A Great addition to an Awesome series!

    Lothaire, the Enemy of Old, has, what he thinks is the perfect bride in the Evil Sorceress Saroya...or has he? There is the little problem of his "perfect" bride not having her own body and needing to reside in the body of the ill-bred appalachain, hillbilly, deathrow inmate (long story), Elizabeth (Ellie) Peirce. Every now and then Saroya likes to take possession of Ellie's body from her, and torture and kill people just for fun. Now that's a bride for Lothaire, Enemy of Old... manipulative, evil, cruel and sorta cuckoo and once he exorcises Ellie's soul from her body, he and Saroya will rule together happily together. But...when Ellie touches him...he feels passion that he has never felt before...surely this peasant can't be the Bride who will make one of the oldest and evilest Vampires heart beat...or is she?

    I'm a big fan of Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series, but I have to admit to being more partial to the books in which the Wolves and Demons take center stage, if only because they are written more playful and less brooding and depressed about their state of immortality...as many of the Vampires are. But Lothaire loves what he is and what he can do and that's why I love him...he's pretty much evil and completely insane, but he's so entertaining and he has some of the best one liners. And Ellie is a perfect match for him, she doesn't let him push her around. She's smart, funny and tough.

    I think what I really loved about this book (aside from the Lothaire/Ellie romance) was the interactions of the main characters with new Loreans (such as the Daci's) and the return of characters like Thad (the Vampire/Phantom hafling from "Dreams of a Dark Warrior) and of course Nuckin' Futs Nix! Finding out more about Nix and Lothaire's relationship was wonderful. I have to admit to wanting her to be his bride after reading their scenes in previous IAD books, but I think the relationship played out in "Lothaire" is better. More dots are being connected for the Vampire caste and I gotta give kudos to Kresley Cole...she keeps this stuff on point, everything is connecting and builds more anticipation for the next book. I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

    Kresley Cole did it again

    The 5 chapter teaser was amazing. Can not wait to read the rest if it. Lothaire has met his match, and he does not even know it.

    Lothaire the enemy of old...theres a reason why hes called that.

    The ones who complain about it lacking other fractions of the lore, hello people...theres a reason the book is titled Lothaire! It even has a picture of him so why is it so bad for not focusing on the others? I thought this book was great throughout. Yes, lothaire is a very hard character to love, even like but you have to understand why he turned out that way. Some people want a book to be exactly the way they expect it to be but complain about it being predictable? Come on! He was never "good" from the start so i dont understand why people expect him to be all goody too shoes. And plus, who wouldnt find his starkly sense of humor fasinating?

    Still a good KC read but far from her usual greatness

    I love all her books and read them over and over but i have to say this wont be one of them. It was waaaay too long and lacked some of the KC elements that make her books intriguing. For example, in other books she intertwines the characters with characters and storhlines of other books and that gives you the feeling of being immersed in the Lore and being a part of the story. This book gives honorable mention to other Lore characters but doesnt even spend a lot on our favorite group, the Valykeries.

    This book also left some random loose ends like Thad. What happened there? It really felt like she knew she had to write this book but she was not able to nail down the flow and plot lines came up like blood roots and just ended. It feels like she had to create some drama to bring them together at the end so she chose a mine explosion? Totally random.

    That brings us to the final "huh?" part of Lothaire: What in the world was going on with all the hillbilly jargon? It just didnt fit and would be comical if it wasnt so annoying. It really seemed to trivialize the book.

    I'll continue to be a KC avid reader but I hope she isn't so burned out on the next one. How about a revisit to the MacRieve pack to see what mischief they've been getting into.

    Amazing

    This book is by far the best in the series. It centers on the romance between Ellie -who is couragous while staring in the face of death, and Lothaire - the vampire set on killing her. You will find yourself loving Lothaire, hating him, and wanting him... sometimes all at once. This book is beautifully written. Cole is witty and humorous, dramatic and descriptive, and her characters are captivating. I couldn't help but hang on every word. If you are reading it as a stand alone book it is amazing, if you are reading it as part of the series than it becomes amazing and unforgetable. (Especially when we get some more insight on Nix!) The best part is that Cole allows these characters to remain true to themselves. She doesn't spend the whole book trying to turn Lothaire into the good guy (even though he can be heroic) like most other romance novels tend to do. And Ellie doesn't back down or reform either. I've already read this book 3 times and it has only been out for 16 days. I tried to move onto a different book but nothing has been able to compare and I find myself pulled back to Lothaire. I highly recommend it.

    Upset

    Through reading the other books in the series, I had thought that there was a strong vibe that Nix and Lothaire would end up together. This would have been perfect, they're both "nucking futs". I'll give this book it's chance, but I want to see Nix. Soon!

    Pretty Good

    The only problem I have with this book is Cole's portrayal of an Appalachian. I am from Appalachia and this book slightly offended me. I am pretty sure she watched "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "Next of Kin" to reference the dialect and living situations. I have never referred to my family as "kin" or my animals as "critters". I expected better from Cole than to rely on common stereotypes to write a character.

    DYING WITH ANTICIPATION

    YOU HAVE HEARD OF LOTHAIRE IN ALL THE OTHER BOOKS OF THE IMMORTALS AFTER DARK , AND NOW YOU FINALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE HIM UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. IT WILL BE A JOY TO SEE THAT EVEN THE "ENEMY OF OLD" CAN FALL IN LOVE, THOUGH IT WONT BE SUCH A SOFT LANDING OR EASY FALL...BUT THEN AGAIN WHERE IS THE FUN IN THAT?

    Swoon worthy

    This book was pure sex, and the great thing was, despite all of that intimate content, there was fantastic character development. I love how the characters stayed true to their identity and beliefs despite the circumstances. I thought it was a great read, humorous at times, and a horribly amazing love story.

    Disappointed

    I have been a fan of Kresley Cole's since book one, but this one was just bad. Am I burnt out on her books? I don't know. But I expected so much more with Lothaire...he was boring. And Ellie was boring. Only part I did enjoy was Nix and the ongoing world of the Lore.

    Question

    It's been bothering me. I'm loving this read, but I can't get this outta my head! How did Lothaire's father impregnate his mother if he has not found his bride??? That would mean he had not been "blooded" - correct? Not blooded = no sex, right??? No even having the need or urge - correct??? Yet he seems to be sexually active (even w the human). Any thoughts - anyone? I'm REALLY HOPING there is an answer. Can someone put me outta my misery, PLEASE?????!!!!!

    WOW!

    I liked that this book was longer than most of the others in the series, Lothaire got the attention he deserved. After seeing him appear in most of the other books, it was great to finally read his story & find out if he's good or evil. The steamy parts had a slightly different feel to them which was great because sometimes you feel like you're reading the same love scene over and over. I really liked Ellie, better than some heroines in previous books. I couldn't put this one down.

    Unforgetable

    We have known the vampyre lothaire through many tales preceeding his. His mystery and dark charisma are not easily forgotten. From the first chapter my infatuation with his character portrayed in the other books was quickly forgotten and as his evil nature was revieled. I could only hate him as i imagine our heroin had. But just as she begins to fall for him despite his cruel and dark nature, so to do i. Through the journey traveled by our vampire and his Bride i saw greater character growth and discover than all of miss Coles other stories combined. Not an easy achievement considering all of her characters travel a daunting path of self discovery. I went from being fascinated my his charter in other books, to utterly hating him, to feeling pity and finally to falling in love with the hidden hero, Lothaire.
    The bravery of the heroin through the journey continued to astound me through the entirety of the lengthy novel. I could feel every emotion she as experienced them, the range of said emotion great.
    A fabulous book that is utterly unforgettable.

    Oh Lothaire!

    This is my favorite of the entire series! I can't wait for the next. It's so great to get to know a character that you think you dispised through out the series; when suddenly, he's "that good."

    Kresly has done it again! Her books never fail to dissapoint and this book is just plain awsome. Lothair has been in this series from the begining and i have always loved him even though hes a tad bit evil lol but i was so great to finally get to see in action and know his personality and know that hes not just a brick wall with no emotion which is what he comes off as in the other books. But anyway great read read it in like a day, cant wait for the next!
