Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Who doesn't love a rough and sexy half-man/wolf?!"

    What a great listen! I was hooked as soon as that rough Scottish accent set my ears on fire! All the reviews were spot on for Kresley Cole's novels--definitely a new favorite author to add to my repertoire. It's a pretty sexy listen, but no more than your average beauty and the overprotective, dominant bordering on crazy lust filled beast tale. I couldn't stop listening that's for sure. Narration was AWESOME, this guy really gets into character and made me hang on every word. My imagination is pretty vivid as I'm sure all avid listeners and readers have, so I was fairly riveted throughout. I'd say its the beginning of a world of interesting characters that I can't wait to learn more about.

    Story
    "Emmaline finds her strength"
    Would you listen to A Hunger Like No Other again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to this audiobook again. The story was a journey for both Emmaline and Lachlain. Through her struggle with Lachlain, Emmaline found her strength to not only stand up to him, but find her place among the Valkyrie and finds out what she is capable of.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Lachlain realizes that Emmaline is nothing like the vampires that torture him for 150 years and that she was a caring being that was also loving.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I listen to this narrator before, but I like all of his performances so I there I don't have a comparison between stories.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Emmaline finds her strength.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this series, but the beginning is better than the later stories. I really like the feisty Valkyrie and Nix, but we lose them in the later stories.

    "The narration makes up for the story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, for the narration! I've since listened to the other books in this series (ALL of which I prefer to this first story) but I was willing to put up with formula-based plotline because the narrator, Robert Petkoff, rocked my world. Like no joke.


    Would you recommend A Hunger Like No Other to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, with the understanding that it's the least good of the series, but worth wading through for hearing Lachlan's voice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nothing stood out - I was mostly overwhelmed but HAWT narration.


    Did A Hunger Like No Other inspire you to do anything?

    I was totally inspired to marathon listen to the other books in the series. They get a lot better so easily worth listening to this one.


    Any additional comments?

    To paraphrase another review, have lots of fresh panties on hand! You will need them!

    "Superb story....fantastic narrator!!!"

    Kresley Cole is gifted..pure and simple! This story held my attention from the moment it began to the very last syllable! I believe that the narrator can make or break a book and Mr. Petkoff is absolutely perfect. I can't say enough about his unique presentation. What a talent! I could listen to him all day. I'll be moving on to the rest of the series now! Thank you both!

    "Super sexy voice!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, I thought Phil Gigante was the ultimate male narrator, but Robert Petkoff gives him a run for his money. It is so well read/acted that you can't help but stop what you are doing and listen


    What did you like best about this story?

    the narrator and that scottish accent. Loves that he acts the book, and just doesn't read it. I loved the way the main male character overcame his hate for what his true love was, how he seduced her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part was the trip to Scotland when he had misconceptions about Emmaline


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, if I could have listen to it all in one sitting I would have


    Any additional comments?

    Great narrator!

    "SERIES LIKE NO OTHER! :)"

    This was a great start to a new series...well I realize it isn't new, but for me it is. :)

    A friend told me about this series, and I'm glad I listened! Although I am currently on book five in this series, I can honestly say that they continue to get better and better!! This first one, while it isn't my favorite, it is a great start as Kresley Cole introduces the Lore (world of supernatural and immortal beings). There is a lot to take in, but it is done very well making it easy to follow.

    Hunger Like No Other focuses on Lachlain MacRieve, a Lykae (aka werewolf) King, who escapes from vampire torture to find his mate. Once he finds her, Emmaline, he discovers that she is half vampire...an enemy to werewolves. Emmaline, who is actually the last female vampire, has been pretty sheltered all her life after her parents died. While she is finally seeking the answers to her past, she meets MacRieve, and is taken on a ride that will change everything. As they travel across the country, her acting as his guide, to his home in Scotland...there is a lot of tension, prejudice, and...well...let me just say things get interesting. ;)

    I am loving this new Lore world, and the characters are amazing...and so many good lines!! Robert Petkoff, the narrator, is really great!! At first his some of his impressions seemed weak, but he grows on you and gets better over time and does a fantastic job!! I'm in for a long ride as I continue this series. So excited!!

    "Love it!"
    Where does A Hunger Like No Other rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of all the books I've listened to this one is very near the top.


    What other book might you compare A Hunger Like No Other to and why?

    Might compare it to Jeaniene Frost's Cat & Bones tales. Don't we all just love "beauty and the beast" stories.


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Scottish accent just does it for me. He makes Lachlain sound exactly what I picture him to be like. Great narrating.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Extreme pleasure yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot wait to get to the rest of the series.
