Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I loved this book, and I have high hopes for the series. I will admit that this series may not be for everybody. At first I was a little worried that it was going to be too violent between the H/h and even with it being borderline in some instances it was never intentional or without reason. With that being said I still loved this book. Right away the story drew me in and I was rooting for both Emmaline and Lachlain. I appreciated the fact Emmaline stuck up for herself even when she was terrified of Lachlain. Let's just say in the beginning that Lachlain wasn't the nicest of guys and was half mad with the horror he had been through. In the end this book has some of my favorite subjects to read about Lykae, Vampires, Valkyries and a bunch more supernatural creatures. I'm looking forward to the next book. Now for the narrator he was super sexy and I would love to have him talking to me in the dark anytime. If you like this book I recommend authors Sherrilyn Kenyon, Larissa Ione, Thea Harrison, or Gena Showalter.
I absolutely LOVE the narrator. Robert Petkoff is probably the best narrator I've ever had the immense pleasure of listening to. I get wrapped up in the story so much that I feel I'm in it. The writing is brilliant. I expected romance books to be hokey or poorly written but NO SIR Kresley Cole is creative and witty.
Oh man... so many. The rain scene at the beginning, Lachlain MacRieve is on the edge. Later on he vows not to touch her as she suckles him and he breaks the headboard begging her to release him from his vow... I could keep going!
Phew... He brings some serious complex levels of heat. His accents, his acting, it really puts you in the scene. His anger when he plays Lachlain MacRieve and his sass when he's reading a Valkyrie. The range is so big you forget it's just one person reading.
This book and the others from this series are by far one of my favorites.
I really liked the introduction to the lore and all the different types of paranormal creatures that are in this book and the rest of the series.
I can't pick a favorite, I really love the whole book!
This book is action packed, funny and has super steamy sex scenes. The narrator is great.
I'm glad I found this series. It's a fun, erotic romance. I completely enjoyed this book even though it's a bit predictable. I thought the explicit sex scenes were well written with great detail and imagination. The Scottish accent of the narrator made the main male character even more delicious!
I love this series. I write this review having listened to almost the whole thing. In this first installment you meet Emmaline a half valkerie half vampire who is the fated mate of the king of the Lykae. Lachlain MacRieve is that king. He has been the prisoner of the Vampire Horde and chained and burned to death only to be brought back again and again for 150 years. Imagine his reaction to finding out his fated mate is vampire?
Petkoff is an excellent narrator.
This series is for adults only.
Valkyrie, vampires and Lykae, oh my! Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark is one of my all-time favorite paranormal romance series. Why, you ask? The world building can't be topped, the character development is ah-mazing, and the smexy time is hot, hot, hot! *fans self*
It's been years since I've read the series in it's entirety so I decided it was time for a re-read. This time, I'm doing it audio style and after a so-so dual narration in The Warlord Wants Forever, they switched things up and changed to Robert Petkoff who added soooo much depth to A Hunger Like No Other. Lachlain MacRieve is by far my favorite of the Lykae and Robert Petkoff's Scottish accent just made me want him even more. The mating scene with Robert Petkoff growling "MINE!" in a Scottish accent is one of the hottest things EVER. He blew me away with his intensity and delivery and I can't wait to see what else he can bring to the series.
For those of you who have read the Immortals After Dark and are fans of audio books, I highly recommend doing a re-read and listening to Robert Petkoff's phenomenal take on Kresley Cole's world.
This was my first experience with a Kresley Cole novel, and after listening to this narrator, I have to agree with many of the other reviews that he was excellent! I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but listening to his take on Lachlan was my guilty pleasure for a day or two. Wish it would have been longer, but I couldn't stop listening!
One of my top 10!
No, but now I will. He rocked. The Scottish accent and deep voice was HOTTT!
YES! I literally couldn't pull myself from the story or my kindle :)
MUST LISTEN! Beware this story is jalapeno hot!
Can't wait to listen to the next book in this series. Both the story and the narration are excellent!! If you like paranormal romance, you'll love this audiobook!
