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?

Good start to the series

This is a great start to the series. I have all the books and was glad to see this one as an audio book. Can't wait for the other titles to be added to audio.

Really?

I don???t understand the rave reviews for the narrator ??? his male accents seemed to go back and forth between Scottish and British ??? a couple of times I thought I was listening to Ringo Star. I am used to Davida Porter and her natural and capable transition between women and men, Scottish and British accents. This person couldn???t transition between sometimes British, sometimes Southern American, sometimes Scottish. It was frustrating. I honestly think Davida would have done so much better ??? and she is no stranger to erotic moments.

The story was interesting because I am not accustomed to this genre and have never heard of some of these ???things??? ??? as far as I know the unknown supernatural beings are all creations of the author. I have heard of covens, but what is a Valkyrie? Thank you Wikipedia???

The story was predictable with the emotional part ??? the unpredictability came from the creatures that inhabit the story. I really disliked the narrator ??? I don???t understand what the other reviewers were thinking. He actually made it worse.

Yuck.

Started slow then got hot!

If you could sum up A Hunger Like No Other in three words, what would they be?

I had a bit of a hard time getting into this book at first. The narrator is great but the story seemed a bit choppy, but then it levels out and becomes really good! I can't wait for the other books to come to audible.

What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

Awesome, very sexy!

Good story - narration good and bad

Story was okay, but ocassionally wanted to strangle the heroine. Loved the narration of the guys, but girls voices, especially the heroine's, just made me want to squeeze tighter. ;-)

Outstanding start to series, sexiest narrator EVER

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

The first book of the Immortals After Dark series rates at the top of my list of excellent stories read by great narrators.

What did you like best about this story?

I love that the IAD series is set in a contemporary world, just below the radar of humanity.

What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

Where do I start? There isn't a voice or an accent he can't do. He is THE sexiest narrator I've ever listened to, and I've listened to scores of audio books.

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

Uh, mostly it made we want to keep a cold bottle of water nearby. However, yes, I did laugh and cry. When such a great male narrator can bring a sensuous paranormal romance to life, you just hold on for all you're worth.

Any additional comments?

I've already read the entire IAD series in paperback and ebook forms. It is one of the best ever written in this genre. Now I'm listening to the audio versions. Robert Petkoff is a rare find in the world of romance narrators. Lovers of erotic romance stories shouldn't miss this opportunity to hear him read A Hunger Like No Other.

The series is sexy, intelligent, clever, adventurous, romantic, and suspenseful. I love the world Lara Adrian wove around her characters.
