Book Review: A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole

Fun fact: Paranormal Romance is my first love but I'm super picky about it so don't read it as often as I'd like. I am thrilled that the Immortals After Dark series gripped me from the beginning and pulled me in, giving me so much to look forward to. I can't say enough good things about A Hunger Like No Other!

A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole

Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire -- unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death.

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?

5 out of 5 stars

A Hunger Like No Other was absolutely thrilling! It was intense, entertaining, and drama-filled. I loved all the emotion, humor, and passion between Emma and Lachlain and the off-the-charts chemistry they shared. There was an excellent push and pull between them as their feelings grew and they came together. It was so exciting to read!

I loved the undeniable desire and fierceness between Lachlain and Emma. I loved watching Emma grow from a timid girl to a seriously kick-ass woman who owned who she was. There were so many fantastic scenes between these two with clever dialogue, I couldn’t get enough. I loved learning about the Laykae and how they find their mate, and Lachlain’s pursuit of Emma.

The story moved at a great pace and had a phenomenal build. There was never a time I wanted to put it down. I loved the fun moments that were laced throughout the story as well as the emotional ones. I loved all the details of the Immortals After Dark world, the lore, all the different factions and politics, and the rich history it's steeped with. It was all so fascinating. I enjoyed all the characters that were introduced and am thrilled to find out where it all will go. The Valkyrie women were priceless, I love their individual personalities and the wit they brought to the story. I liked meeting Lachlain’s brother and friends and hints of what's to come.

This story is what I love about PNR. The intensity, the drama, the entertainment value, and the passion mixed with a seriously extensive and detailed world to lose yourself in. This series is my new addiction.
