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?

Now all I want is a Scottish Werewolf!

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

This book was so fun it was in a class by itself.

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

I guess the Black Dagger Brotherhood may compare. If you like this series you would like BDB. The world building is very detailed and stays consistent even though each book is about a different set of lovers.

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

Lachlain MacRieve!

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

I did have an extreme reaction to these characters, the Werewolves were a hoot and when they finally get down to it, it's hot.

Any additional comments?

So far I've loved every book in this series except the last one and only because I haven't read it yet. The author does have a formula that by the 3rd book you've figured out but have no fear the mental masturbation does get relieved eventually so once you've read a few you can deal more easily. But although you can predict some of it, the story lines are great, they're well written and a whole lot of fun. I'd recommend this series to all my girls at work.

OH MY!

Would you listen to A Hunger Like No Other again? Why?

Maybe, but I'm not a read a book again type of person. There are too many books out there that I haven't read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mist, because she is sanely insane. She made me laugh

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

I have not listened to any of Robert Petkoff's performance, but he is awesome in this book. He brings the book to life. He is distinct in the characters and you can tell the difference who is who.

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

I laughed out loud literally.

Any additional comments?

Good book, great narrator!

Boy Meets Girl


Typical romance story with a predictable plot/storyline.

- Girl meets boy
- Instant sexual attraction
- Both have issues to overcome
- Passion builds
- Conflict
- Hot and steamy sex scenes
- Love follows
- Love finds a way.

Replace boy meets girl with Werewolf meets Valkyrie/Vampire and there you have it.

Adolescent boy fantasy - which is fine if you are

an adolescent boy! Or have crushes on them! The girl is a weak victim, the boy is a controlling bully/ abuser and they hate each other but are fated to be together and they have CHEMISTRY so the sex is good.
I'm kinda sorry I bought this one. I usually like fantasy and this writer gets so many stars so I thought it was a sure bet.

Kresley Cole Book 2

What made the experience of listening to A Hunger Like No Other the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the sisters of the main character. They were like comic relief. The story could get intense at times.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Satisfied.

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

I think the title says it all. Look what he did to his leg to get to her.

Wow!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes.

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

The narrator is the most memorable from the a hunger like no other. I think I could just listen to his voice all day and night. He brings the book alive in a way never would have thought.

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

The different accents and the characters came alive in a way that reading doesn't quite do. Don't get me wrong, I love reading books and imagining them in my mind. But Robert Petkoff just does int better

Interesting but not wow.

During the first half of this audio I almost gave up on it. The situation between the two main characters becomes very repetitive. However I am pleased I stayed with it as the second half was very good. I have never listened to or read a supernatural type book before so I am now interested but not sold. Mr Petkoff has the most amazing voice. Incredibly good interpretation of a sexy Scottish brogue, but I am afraid Emma did sound mostly like a man trying to be a woman (Mrs Doubtfire the movie kept coming to mind) but other than that I so enjoyed listening to Robert and would listen to him anytime....particularly if playing a Scotsman!!
