A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole review
Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire -- unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death.
A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her . . .
After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.
A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .
Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents -- until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae -- and their notorious dark desires -- ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.
An all-consuming desire . . .
Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?
First off, I'd like to point out that this is actually book 2, not book 1. Book one is titled: The Warlord Wants Forever
This book was recommended to me by a book friend of mine. She'd never let me down before, so I was excited to start this one because it sounded really interesting.
Before beginning this book, I was in a reading slump. For almost two weeks I could hardly pick up a book, let alone open it and read it. I can happily report that this book snapped me out if it.
The story line is a lot different than anything I read before. Definitely fascinating, but I wasn't drawn in right away. After reading the first several chapters I found myself liking the book more and more. I finished over half of the book in just a few short hours and then wrapped the book up quickly tonight. I adored the second half of the book. I loved it so much that I can see myself going back to reread it in the future.
Lachlain is a sexy beast. Lately I've taken a liking to Highlanders, so the fact that he was a Scottish werewolf king sold me completely. Emma, is the perfect mixture of sweet and tough. I never found her annoying like so many heroines out there today. They had great chemistry and I didn't want their story to end!
I will definitely be reading more books from this series! I recommend this to anyone that wants a unique paranormal romance!
