A Hunger Like No Other surprised me! Kresley Cole's created a magical world. The reader is taken on a wild, hot ride with sensual and laugh-out-loud funny scenes.The story the best of paranormal romance. Lachlain and Emmaline hooked me from page one. Filled with vampires, lycans, witches, valkyries and wraiths, you never know what's coming from one page to the next. I can't wait to read the next installment from Kresley Cole in what I am sure will be a must-read series. This book made me a Fan!
the twist at the end about children
I've listen to book 2 and 3 very good
I laughed many times
Completely addicted to romance novels!
I have read all the novels in the immortal after death series, and this one is no doubt my favorite! Lachlain made Emma suffer a lot, but it let him understand more and more Emma's tender, kind and actually strong nature, which is soooo lovable. It is true she is his mate, but their characters are really compatible.
Mr Petkoff gave Lachlain a great voice, and it did enhance the hero. Nevertheless, the female voice, I feel really bad to say it, really sounds a bit like trans-gender.
Perfect language, perfect story, perfect sound for the hero!
I liked this story by the end of the book. At first, I was very wary. The beginning is rough but if you make it through to the end of the book the author explains this different "lore" world and it makes more sense.
After reading (on the Kindle) several more of her novels, I came back and listened to this one again and liked it even more.
Cole's writing is excellent -- fast-paced and snappy dialog with just the right amount of humor. The tension is credible (it is actually very clever how she's structured this world -- it pretty much guarantees credible tension) which is something I always look for.
And it is fun to see the characters come back in subsequent novels. Some of the books are better than others, and this is one of the best in the series.
For those new to this genre....the sex scenes tend to be more graphic than in other romance books, but seem to be on par with what I've read so far in other current "vampire" novels.If you like hot scenes, you will not be disappointed.
This was my first Kresley Cole novel and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I'm an avid J.R. Ward and Lara Adrian fan and I didn't think that I would be able to find another author who could keep my attention, make my heart pound, make me laugh, and make me tingly in certain areas...if you know what I mean. The story line was great and much of the enjoyment of the fantasy was narrator. Although I didn't like his voice so much for the lead female character, his voice for the lead male character made me want to catch a plane to Scotland, stat! If you need a little mental getaway...you'll enjoy this.
I’m usually quite reluctant to buy romance audibooks that feature a male narrator as they have a tendency to either read in a rush, obviously hoping to be done with it, or read in a monotone, which can ruin an otherwise fun story. Imagine my surprise and delight when Mr. Petkoff not only read at an almost indulgent pace but made the effort to give voice to each character, turning what would have otherwise been an enjoyable listen into a delightful one. He seemed to have fun with the story, which in and of itself was intriguing, entertaining, and well executed, though I admit there were times when I found myself not so much disliking but not fully enjoying Emmaline’s character. She was a bit too timid for my tastes but that hardly detracted from the overall experience. On the whole, however, I thoroughly enjoyed this and am looking forward to listening to the next book by the author and/or the next narration by Mr. Petkoff.
the story was good intense fas pace and very sexy good read.
the main characters and the relationship the had with one another very hot and sexy.
he does a great werewolf voice loved it.
I love this book, I have read it now 4 times. I just can't get enough of those sexy MacRieve Scotts and the fact that they are werewolves is a plus. If you like BDB or Midnight breed you will love the IAD series. That's all I'm going to say. They are all amazballz
The man character's accent was nice. Loved the accent. Although the female's accent could be improved. The autor details nicely, and that's what draws the reader into the story.
Yes, although Personally, I don't think I'll finish the entire series
Didn't particularly care for the female's voice.
Just a little bibliophile! ;)
For me this story was an "okay" concept that was just not too compelling. The writing is not very inspiring, and the dialogue a bit unimaginative and sometimes silly. I found the whole dominant male attitude of the main character and the love scenes to be rather cliche', and unfortunately the main female character did not resonate for me and make me care. The narration was just passable but not impressive, IMO the female voices were not done very well. In example, Jeaniene Frost's writing and (in particular) the Night Huntress series is what I would refer you to as the high standard in this genre, if you enjoy this type of story: what I call "sexy paranormal" or R-rated paranormal romance.
