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
    "Ugh! Enough said."
    What disappointed you about A Hunger Like No Other?

    I really, really disliked the hero, and couldn't muster any admiration for the heroine. Her aunts were strident and I found them unlovable, and while a few secondary characters struck me as worth getting to know in future books, I don't think I could bring myself to care enough to buy another one of these novels.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kresley Cole again?

    Nope. The writing wasn't all that bad--I've seen worse--but the plot was uninteresting overall, with a lot of big dramatic moments where the hero and heroine fought and no real story progression. I found myself alternately bored by the hystrionics of various characters and irritated by the unmitigated overbearing Chauvinism of the male protagonist. Ugh.


    How could the performance have been better?

    To have a better performance you would need a better novel. Spend your credits elsewhere. If you like paranormals with good plotlines and characters you might actually like to meet in real life, try JR Ward, Nalini Singh, Lara Adrien or Larissa Ione.

    "Loved this story!"

    I must say this is one of the best narrators I have heard. He does dialects extremely well. I also agree with another listener who pointed out that the woman, the main character, is very realistic. I also get tired of the whiney, tougher than nails, kick ass female that seems to pop up in a lot of books. No wonder most of these women can't keep their mates. This female, Emiline grows into her strength, little by little. If you like romance and werewolves, get this book. It's amazing. I loved it. Thank you audible listeners for recommending this one.

    PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.

    Story
    "I guess ok if you like stories about rape"
    What disappointed you about A Hunger Like No Other?

    I've said it before my reviews of other books, I absolutly HATE when the author develops the sexual relationship before the emotional one.


    What was most disappointing about Kresley Cole’s story?

    A story about kidnap and rape!! Forcing a woman to strip down naked and physically manipulate a man's genitals against her will, I consider this to be rape.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    The narrator was the only redeeming thing about this book. IMHO his preformance was really quite good, esp. considering what he was reading.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust mostly. Yes, anger (that I bought the d@mn book), disappointment (that it didn't live up to the hype) and frustration (that so many people actually think this is a great story (what the hell is our society coming too?)).


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased this book because it kept coming up over and over on my "recommended for you" list, that combined with the high rating and raving reviews. File this one under "bodice ripper." I quit listening after the first 5 chapters because I was so discusted by the victimization of Emma, but hey I paid for it, and it WAS so HIGHLY rated I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so after about a week, I continuted on until the bitter end. Lachlain became less ruthless towards Emma in the middle which made the story more interesting, but then took a turn for the worse toward the end for me.

    Wow, just wow! I have read all the IAD books, and this audio version is phenomenal. I adore Robert Petkoff's voice. Amazingly talented. My advice is that you don't skip this one because it's brilliant!

    "A series "LIKE NO OTHER"! Read the entire series!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy Kresley Coles, Immortals after Dark series immensely. I love Robert Petkoff's narration; he has a sexy voice and a pure talent.

    Every female character in the Immortals After Dark series is a strong woman. Both physically and mentally (even Nix) these women make for the best characters in Ms. Cole's stories. The Valkyrie (Nix for sure) are my personal favorite characters. These characters make me laugh often. They are a blend of sexiness, craziness, humor, strength, loyalty, honor and pride which make them indispensable to their males and this fantastic series. The males in this series, wow, you cannot help yourself but be turned on my their charms! These characters are amazing, Ms. Cole creates fantastic plot lines with likable, relatable characters even though they are fantasy. You can read any book by itself, but they are tied together flawlessly and entertainingly!

    I am a LOYAL fan!
