I can't figure out how Lothaire's father impregnated his mother if he had not found his bride yet. Was it before he had frozen into immortality? He also had a human mistress when lothaire's mother left. Stefanivich was already king so he must have been strong and already frozen into immortality, right?
Kamen Stefanivich was not frozen into immortality when he sired Lothaire. Now I question whether he has a heart at all. If it was up to being the most powerful Lothaire would most likely already control the Horde.

Hands out to K Oct 20th, re-reading Cole is one of the most talented PNR authors out there, and this book is one of her best yet.
Could this be Elizabeth's favorite uncle Ephraim? Separately, Lothaire believes the Ring of Sums, a talisman that grants wishes, is the key to separating his bride from the vile human also inhabiting her body. And… that he most recently lost the ring to the Commander Webb, the evil leader of the human faction known as The Order, upon his escape from island that held many immortals prisoners.
And in a fun game of Tit for Tat, both Elizabeth and Saroya try to convince Lothaire that they are his intended bride, not the other one. We see many characters here too! We learn more about Balery, aka The Hag, as she helps Lothaire with her sorcery skills. And of course the Valkyrie ladies show up to flaunt their stuff, and Nix both dazzles and confuses us with her brilliance.
We learn more about Dorada too, and see that she is now regenerating into the beautiful woman she was once. OMG, do they work. His condescending comments about her redneck life were priceless, and her ability to go toe-to-toe with him only drove him more deliriously mad.

Kresley Cole comes in a very close second. Her heroes and heroine are fierce warriors who will fight to the death to survive or get what they feel they. The majority of these supernatural characters are close to losing their minds because they've been alive for s There are only a few select authors I consider to be like crack with their series.
He made quite the splash in the last book, Dreams of a Dark Warrior and almost took over the story. I recommend you go back and read all prior books before this one because you'll understand the world and why Lothaire acts the way he does. Lothaire is a very complicated character. You will either love him or hate him. I despise Barrons le Douche with everything I have inside of me.
Lothaire for most of this book was channeling Le Douche and Kresley barely made him redeemable by the end. But Kresley is a very sly wench of an author and does something amazing based on her epilogues. The epilogue to Lothaire is the best one she has written in all her IAD books.
She gives us insight on the main character before they become this heartless, and in most cases, ruthless killer. The start of Lothaire shows Lothaire at eight years old and not yet a vampire.
His mother is a proud queen of the Daci race, another type of vampire, and Lothaire is meant to take over the crown there and become the Daci king. Unfortunately his father is a cruel bastard who throws Lothaire and his mother, Ivana out into the snow. This is something I never done while reading an epilogue. And since Lothaire is thousands of years old, the way he reacts to things can be excused to a certain point.
Lothaire wants to rule every kingdom he can get his hand on in the Lore, as well as Dacia. In order to do that he needs an immortal bride.
Her name is Saroya, a goddess who has been cursed and takes over human bodies. Lothaire meets Saroya, while in the body of the teenage, Ellie Peirce, who is poor white trash and lives with her family in the Appalachian Mountains. From that moment on, Lothaire comes to the conclusion that Saroya is his bride because of the way his body reacts to her.
In order to do this, Lothaire must find a special ring that grants wishes. This is unfortunate for Ellie, who blacks out thanks to Saroya and ends up on death row because Saroya goes on a bloody rampage. Ellie is stuck in prison for five years, hoping she's given the needle because she feels her life has been destroyed.
Lothaire is cruel to Ellie because he thinks Saroya is his mate and only worthy of him. Ellie is ready to go down in flames, but wants to enjoy herself before she's snuffed out by Lothaire. She drives him up the wall, by seducing him with her virgin, redneck temptress body Lothaire wants to eat up. But after he does complete his endgame, he has nothing else to look forward to.
RITA Reader Challenge: Lothaire by Kresley Cole
Lothaire 4 Stars An entertaining addition to the IAD series although there are some irritating elements. What can one say about Lothaire? He's magnificent yet evil, cunning and intelligent yet I am giving it four stars, but the real rating is more like three and a half. I was incredibly excited about Lothaire's story, but I was a bit let down by the time I finished reading it. I think Her books have been translated into over twenty foreign languages, garnered three RITA awards, and consistently appear on the bestseller lists in the US and abroad.
