In Kresley Cole’s the Immortals After Dark series, Nïx, the Ever-Knowing, or better known throughout the Lore as Nucking-Futs Nïx, has been setting up her own form of speed-dating in an attempt to match mates and seed alliances for the upcoming Accession, and when you are a 3,000-year-old soothsaying Valkyrie, you don’t have to make it easy for anyone. I mean, what’s the fun in that?
Here are a few things we’ve learned about our favorite Valkyrie while over the last few years.
1. Nïx is always ready for a party…
A group of elven-looking women strolled by, wearing nothing but gauzy skirts. Their chests were bare except for body paint styled in intricate leafy designs.
“Goody,” Nïx muttered. “The dendrophiles.”
“The dendro what?” Néomi said.
“Tree lovers – the tree nymphs.”
Their obvious leader said, “Well, if it isn’t Nucking Futs Nïx and the hex hack.”
“Well, if it isn’t the hookers,” Nïx replied blandly. “Oh, I’m sorry, nymphets, this isn’t the orgy – that’s down the road.”
“Nïxie, every party is an orgy waiting to happen.”
Nïx opened her mouth, then closed it, dragging Néomi and Mari away. “Well, you can’t argue with reason, can you?”
