"An Edgy Paranormal Romance like No Other!"

A Hunger Like No Other is a paranormal romance that comes tearing off of the pages from the first page and paragraph. The atmosphere is gritty, the passion is voracious, and the plot is like no other I have read. Kresley Cole attacks the paranormal romance genre with true grit, creativity and lusty romance. Her other-worldly creatures do not hold back in any aspect of their nature as they stop at nothing to have what they want.

The book opens with Lachlain MacRieve, king of the Lykae Clan, bound and tortured in the catacombs of Paris. Because he is immortal no matter how close he may reach death he awakens again to life only to be tortured again and again. It is the unwavering belief the Lykae have of their one true mate awaiting them somewhere in the world that he manages to hold on to a thread of sanity; that and the undeniable resolution that he will have his revenge against the vampire leader , Demestriu.

Beautiful, sweet Emmaline Troy wouldn't hurt a fly and is considered an anomaly amongst the Lore as half vampire and half Valkyrie. Only 71 years of age she has never sucked blood from its source but rather given blood through a blood bank, thanks to her Aunt Annika, a Valkyrie that adopted her from birth. And Annika, keeping her promise to Emma's mother, has managed to keep her hidden from vampires.

Emma, however, has finally managed to sneak away from the protection of her Valkyrie Aunts and is attempting to find her vampire father and comes to terms with her unique identity. However because Emma has been sheltered from much of the 'real' paranormal world of Lore, she truly has no idea how much danger she is putting her self in as she blindly searches the streets of Paris. Meanwhile the dark seduction of her destiny is about to blast open the doors of her true nature; for not too far below is a Lykae and he has finally caught the sent of his mate. And just her mere presence alone in Paris is enough to push Lachlain and the beast inside to defy his restraints to seek and claim his one and only.

Ms. Cole does not hold back in A Hunger Like No Other, as she reveals the extreme passionate nature of these varying creatures be it through violence or love. The dichotomy of Emma and Lachlain's relationship was startling at first but truly showed that opposites do attract and ultimately balance out one another if they have the courage to reach for that change inside themselves. I found their relationship, though turbulent, well developed and highly stimulating. The overall plot was intriguing and definitely leaves room for a solid series to evolve as the reader comes to learn of many fascinating secondary characters/creatures.

Well done Ms. Cole you have definitely carved your own niche in the paranormal romance world. A Hunger like No Other, is not just another romantic's a powerful experience!

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—ebb 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...?
