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?

©2006 Kresley Cole (P)2006 Simon & Schuster, Inc

    "WOW!! What a great book!!"

    Loved this book. What a great story. Wonderful characters, wonderful story line, hot and steamy sex. Not only were the main characters, Emma and Lachlain great, all the secondary characters were too. I love all the different types of "beings", Lykae, Valkyrie, Vampires and so much more. I am looking forward to the next book. I do wish there had been more dialogue in the book but the story was so good and it wasn't full of only thoughts and feelings repeated over and over as some authors write when there is not much dialogue. So, A+ for a story well written.

    Narration:
    I have almost started this series so many times and didn't because my preference of narrator is female, but I have to say Robert Petkoff did a fantastic job, and I don't think this book would have been as good narrated by a female, unless is it was Tavia Gilbert, she can narrate anything and its wonderful in my opinion. (although I do think Jim Frangione did a great job on the wonderful Black Dagger Brotherhood series, which is also the only other male narrator I have listened too)

    Credit worthy? 100% YES!!

    I totally recommend to book to any PRN reader/listener

    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.

    Story
    "Fun Vampire, Valkyrie and Werewolf Romance."

    There are ten or more books in the Immortals After Dark series. This is book 2. It can be read as a standalone. It’s my favorite in the series. It was fun and put me in a good mood. I loved Lachlain's single-minded obsessive love for his one mate.

    The plot was a little weak, for example: Lachlain a werewolf went alone to the Vampire stronghold in Russia to find his brother. He was surrounded by vampires who kept him prisoner for 150 years. He has been free a short while, finding and being with his mate Emma. She goes to the Vampire stronghold. So again Lachlain goes there alone to rescue her. He is king of the werewolves. Why doesn’t he take an army with him?

    I enjoyed the Valkerie personalities and antics.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Robert Petkoff was sooo sexy doing Lachlain and with a great Scottish accent. Petkoff was a little too wimpy reading Emma, but I’m still giving him 5 stars because Lachlain and his general narration was excellent.

    DATA:
    Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 360 pages. Swearing language: strong but rarely used. Sexual language: moderate to strong. Number of sex scenes: about 5. Setting: current day France, Scotland, Russia, Louisiana. Book copyright: 2006. Genre: paranormal romance.

    "This book makes me growl!"

    I love paranormal romance, but especially werewolf stories. This one is exceptional! With Robert Petkoff not only growling in my ears, but doing it with a Scottish accent, I am surprised I haven't spontaneously combusted! Wow!!

    "amazing author and narrator"

    awesome.... very good. tThought I would be disappointed due to some reviews but... blahhh. they dont know anything! The build of anticipation was perfect, the characters are of the Lore that you'd want to know, to be apart of. I didn't like how long it took for them to get together, but that was also part of the awesomeness. Amazing conclusion, some LOL moments, and steamy romance scenes. AND I hear it gets even better from here!!!

    "The reviews for this book aren't spot on"

    I loved the narrator but the story was terrible. It was like a movie I've seen before with a bad twist. Don't bother.
