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?

    "solid paranormal romance"

    This was a solid PNR book, far less silly and annoying than most. The sexy times were really sexy, and the characters and plot well written.

    This is not my go-to genre, but it made a nice change from some of my deeper reads.

    "Super story and narrator!"

    I had already read this book, so the story wasn't a surprise. I've enjoyed all the books of this series. But I was delighted by the narrator, especially when he did Lachlan's voice. FYI, there is some explicit sex in this story in case that influences your choice of books, one way or the other. And it's definitely one of those rocky romances often based on misconceptions about each other. I got a bit tired of the heroine and felt like she wasn't fair to our hero for far too long. But I still liked the story a lot and would get the second book right now, IF AUDIBLE HAD IT!

    Story
    "Wasn't sure at first, then it sucked me in!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Hunger Like No Other the most enjoyable?

    Robert is the first male narrator I have listened to, and I have to say, he is amazing. He made this whole story come to life with his amazing accents. The women in the story was a little harder to deal with, but I can imagine it's harder for a man to do a woman's voice. It wasn't enough to make me stop listening that is for sure.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I honestly didn't have a favorite character, I really liked them all quite equally.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    EVERYTHING for the most part. Just an amazing narrator, he makes this book extremely sexy.


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

    I did, the beginning. Lachlain was so forceful with Emma, it was almost a little rapey... but once he started to realize how he had been treating her, and came to his senses after being imprisoned for so long, you begin to understand it all and it all comes together. I did not laugh or cry, but this was the sexiest book I have ever listened to. Most of my book have a fair amount of sex of course, but omg Kresley is REALLY graphic, and I love it...


    Any additional comments?

    I am hoping that the rest in this series does not disappoint as well! I am listening to Shadow's Claim right now, and it is amazing. I tend to like vampires more than any other, so I thought I may love this book.

    "Outstanding! A Must Read. Wow!"

    Wow!! My first Kresley Cole book! I started it at 9pm and it's 6am now. I can't stop listening it's so darn good. Great narrator. Great story and deep sensuality. Not smutty. But might cause a squirm or two or three. In a good way!! :) The story is riveting with surprises and danger. (Great side plot about the truth of elinore's background.)

    I like the two main characters so much, I want more from them!! Hope the series has another book about them. But I'll definitely read the rest regardless.

    The story sets up such a creative interesting world to explore in further books. Oh, and the male lead in his book is HOT. (although Jerihco Barrons [Karen Moning's Fever series] and Bones from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress are still my very favorite).

    This is one of my favorite books in the fantasy/ romance genre. And I'll watch the sunset listening till I finish. And probably start another from the author.

    LOVE IT!!

    "Wow Robert Petkoff is impeccable... Impetkable!"
    Any additional comments?

    Wowsers... Robert Petkoff narrates brilliantly! His characterisations are distinct and personal, his accents are excellent (no Scottish turning Indian here(or is that just mine:-)) and his inflection, especially during intense moments is extremely captivating, engaging and... Well.... HOT!
    I feel like I'm listening to a secret intimate recording (at (those HOT) times) or a play rather than a reading. Superb.
    As for the story, it was quite good although a little long and drawn out for my taste (and ADHD) I liked the intensity of the building relationship between Emma and Lachlan and the good amount of action and intrigue within the not so usual vampire/werewolf/valkyrie back story. Looking forward to reading more.

    Story
    "I feel like a teenager!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is the first vampire/warewolf novel I've ever read so I really didn't know what to expect. It starts off fast and then fills you in on some of the character's history later on. This kind of confused me. Also, the lingo was a bit juvenile. I felt it took away from the quality of writing. Other parts of the book were so well written so I know the author is capable, I just wish it would have been consistent throughout.


    What was most disappointing about Kresley Cole’s story?

    I wouldn't say this story was disappointing, I'm simply used to a different style of writing from what I'm used to.


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

    Robert was a pleasant surprise. He's a pretty great narrator. I'd say he played every part very well.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I think if the author had turned it up a notch and refrained from teenage speak this novel could have been great. However it seems she has an amazing following and tons of fans so maybe she doesn't need to change a thing :)


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this novel was exciting and entertaining. Even thought there were a few parts that had be rolling my eyes and I likely won't buy the next book in the series I can't say I didn't enjoy myself. It certainly wasn't a waste of money. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet escape and a few laughs.

    "Good but not Great"

    I have read most of this series and really enjoyed it. When I saw the audio books released, I thought that I would enjoy listening to the series as well. The fact that I have read and now am listening to the series, should tell you enough about where i stand on my recommendation. But I do want to note that I think this book and the series are slightly different from most paranormal romance books. There is a certain whimsical nature to some of the characters and plot lines, a la the Kerrelyn Sparks' books. It does have darker moments, but it is also fun...perfect summer listen for vacation.

    "A decent beginning to a great series"

    I've listened to 1-5 in this series. This first book was my least favorite. The good news is that it only gets better from here, and this first one was an enjoyable listen. Overall, this author really knows how to deliver a well-paced, action-packed romantic adventure. The problem is I didn't particularly like either character in the beginning. He's a bit of an un-evolved caveman. She's a bit of a wuss. I wasn't fond of the dominant/submissive tone of their relationship. Fortunately, I hung in there. As the characters develop further, he loses some of his caveman act as he works out his inner strife, and she discovers her backbone. Some people might be too turned off to hang in there long enough to witness the shift. If you're not into seductive "rape" scenes but do like romantic action adventures, you could easily skip to book 2 and not miss much. Don't give up on this author too early. She does deliver good entertainment. Robert Petkoff, the narrator, is generally ah-may-zing, but the falsetto that he chose for this heroine was a little grating. I'll forgive him as he does everything else so well.

    Loved this book exciting well read and written. Even though it was read by a man he managed to change his voice to suit the different characters very well.

    All of it was fab flowed well and had all emotions working.

    "This is my first Kresley Cole book"
    If you could sum up A Hunger Like No Other in three words, what would they be?

    Disturbing, Funny, Hot


    What did you like best about this story?

    How Emmaline changes from a doormat into a headstrong and kickass woman


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

    His female voices where as distintive as the male and his scottish accent was well done.And oh wow can he do hot and sexy ;-)


    Any additional comments?

    The only reason it didn't get full ratings was the start. I almost stopped listening because the relationship started off abusive and that was what I found a little disturbing.I'm glad i kept going however as it got so much better

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

    Fantastic, Addictive, Unmissable


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

    In a way, there isn't another book like this. The book holds it's own in so many different ways and I couldn't think to compare it with another.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    The narration of the story is done incredibly well, and he certainly can do the accents. His only downfall is, there are so many female characters, and whilst that would be difficult for most people to do, he doesn't have the right voice to do a female voice.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A love hotter than any flame.


    Any additional comments?

    The story itself is amazing, I 1st had this in paperback, I read it over and over again. Unfortunately now I don't get as much time to read, but having it in audio form means that i now can pretty much take it anywhere. I'd recommended to listen to this book at least once. There are some really hilarious moments, and the relationship between Emma and Lachlain will keep you on the edge of your seat 1 minute, and falling madly in love the next. Kresley Cole transports you into a whole new world, one with plenty of mystery, suspense, laughter, and of course passionate romance. Even if this isn't your sort of book, there's bound to be at least 1 in the immortals after dark series that will enchant you as it has me.

    I enjoyed this book despite the writing being far from brilliant. The hate him, love him was a bit too dragged out for my taste though.
    The narrator had a lovely voice, and narrated the story and the male voices well. His female voices however were horrendous and drove me nuts.
    All in all was enjoyable enough that I'll listen to the next book in the series.

    "Awe-inspiring mythical romance at it's best"
    If you could sum up A Hunger Like No Other in three words, what would they be?

    The three words would be - Original, Imaginative and Engrossing


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Hunger Like No Other?

    Upon scenting Emmaline, his long awaited mate, Lachlain's sheer will and need to get to her at whatever the cost to himself.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Lachlain at Val Hall, reunited with his brother, saving his beloved Emmaline - confronting the Valkyrie - watching the video of Emmaline's encounter with her father.


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

    Ran through a whole gamut of emotions - frustration, pity, desire, sheer fun, sadness, despair - so easy to see the characters as real people, as they might be outside of fantasy. Despite the fact we're reading about a Werewolf and a Vampire/Valkyrie trying for a relationship, the fundamental issues are the same for everyone - finding that one special person - our soulmate - keeping a loved one safe, protecting, nurturing, giving each other space to grow.


    Any additional comments?

    Inspiring. Not a pretty world, the world of the Lore, but then the real world isn't that pretty either! We make the most of what we have, enjoy the beauty as we find it.
