Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark)

Dreams of a Dark Warrior (Immortals After Dark Series, Book 9) - Kresley Cole This book has everything I like in a paranormal romance. A mix of gods, sex, and immortal creatures. Although the Dark Warrior, Declan Chase is a mortal, technically he's a Berserker and still part of the Lore. The Lore is a secret plane coexisting with man's. When Berserkers win two hundred battles in the name of Woden, then they are granted immortality - ohalla. Once upon a time a long time ago , The Valkyrie, Regin the Radiant fell in love with a mortal warrior, Aiden the Fierce. As the fates would have it, he dies and vows to come back for her. Each time he comes back reincarnated as someone else. This happens 5 times over a thousand years possessing none of his memories of Regin or of Aiden . She waited and was faithful and loyal to him for she loved him. But everytime it happened that she ended up kissing Aiden whether he was reincarnated as a pirate or some other strong character ,he died . That broke her heart over and over. I could have strangled Declan Chase for being such a prick. He stabs Regin with a sword to the chest, twists it, kidnaps her and throws her in a jail cell!! Declan was a madman who hated creats [immortal creatures] with a passion. His lifes purpose was to exterminate them and he'd put them through mega torture. I hated that he was a drug addict too. He was preventing himself from being who he really was by suppressing it with drugs. It nearly destroyed him.However, I like a HEA too :) My favorite character is Nix aka Phenix. What a cutie pie! She is older than anyone and crazier :D
