Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela - 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. Can they conquer an agony of frustration and slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?

Fave Narrator INFURIATING paranormal snarky

UNTOUCHABLE by Kresley Cole is the eighth novel in the Immortals After Dark series.  I have been devouring them on audio thanks to the stellar narrations of Robert Petkoff.  UNTOUCHABLE was filled with frustrations for our couple and the timeline overlapped previous books. While aspects left me cold I ended up enjoying this tale and the IAD world.

The timeline of Murdoch Wroth and Daniela’s story overlaps those of the previous Wroth brothers and Cole managed quite well. While each book works on its own, I highly recommend reading them in order. Timelines, key characters, and a Seer name Nix enhance the stories the further we progress into the series.

After 300 years, Murdoch finds his fated mated and his heart begins beating. I was very curious to learn Murdoch story. He has popped in and out of the previous books and Cole even hinted about him finding his mate. Daniela is Valkyrie but also part Icere. Her ice fey side has left her in hiding and unable to touch anyone.

Murdoch saves her and their messy, heated haters to lovers romance begins. Of course, Murdoch wants to deny his mate is a Valkyrie and then to not be able to touch her really sets him off. They get creative in the passion department, but their romance was turbulent with bickering and frustrations. I could have skipped the angst and miscommunication between them and often wanted to bop them on the heads. However, I did like that Cole reversed roles have Daniela be the one who pursues Murdoch. We get to see character growth between the two of them and got to visit Icere. Sacrifice, commitment, and determination made way for a sentimental and heartwarming ending.

Robert Pedkoff continues his stellar narration and for me, he brings these tales to life. His ability to handle both the female and male voices in addition to creating unique voices for them delivered a treat to my ears. I love that as soon as someone speaks I know who they are without any indicators.

Far from my favorite in this series, UNTOUCHABLE did offer humor, introduced new characters and had Nix heavily involved throughout. She is hands down my favorite character and I enjoyed her snark and meddling.

      I am still working my way through them and will be starting book 10 soon. Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night was my highest rated. If you click on series above it will show you the ones I have reviewed.

    I love supernatural stories how much more immortals! My. Haven’t heard of this series before but after reading your review, I’ll definitely hunt them all even if this one had my most hated feeling which is frustration. And you are mated to someone you can’t touch?! Well, that’s definitely uncool, so I understand the frustration haha. I just joined the giveaway. Hopefully this series will be my first audio book ever.

    I’ve read almost all the Immortals after Dark series and love them (and Robert’s narration for the ones I’ve listened to).

    It kind of sounds like this was one of those frustrating reads that you like, don’t love but you still love the characters and world so it doesn’t even matter that you didn’t love it. Hopefully that made sense LOL! Great review Kim and have a nice weekend!

    I was so confused for a minute because I knew I had read this one but I thought it was called Deep Kiss of Winter. I had to Google it to find out what the heck was going on. Then I realized the anthology was called Deep kiss of Winter and the story in the anthology was Untouchable. lol But I did love the story!

    I so need to get back into the series. Even though I own 5 in paperback, I still haven’t gone beyond book one. And I have told you that before I think. Glad you are enjoying them for the most part. I know all about wanting to bop some heads while reading at times!
