Daring You to Read… A Hunger Like no Other by Kresley Cole

Daring you to read

I’m in a paranormal romance mood lately, so I chose to challenge you to read another of my favorite PRN series, Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole. Right along side with the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, IAD manages to swipe me off my feet every time.

What I like the most about this series? Well I’d have to go with a top 3. First, the world Cole created is unique and very dynamic. Second, the selection of Races in her role is simply amazing. I mean, do you know many books who can claim to have Valkyries and Furies among their ranks? That’s not the mention witches, sorceress, demons, vampires (both good and evil), Lykae and more… Yeah there’s definitely something for everyone! And last but not least, the characters! There are MANY characters in this series and they are all amazing. Their personality shines and each couple has a special relationship. Nix is by far my favorite =)

A Hunger like no Other is the first book in the series (though there’s a novella available in Playing Easy to Get, which I haven’t read) and it features Lachlain, the Lykae King, who has been trapped in the catacombs under Paris, suffering torture  by fire for 150 years and Emma a young half-vampire/half-Valkyrie. Fate is playing a cruel joke on them because Lachlain has been hating and killing vampires for centuries. How could his destined Mate be one of them? Their struggles and battles of will were amazing and before I knew it, I was completely hooked!

More about A Hunger like No Other:

A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley ColeA 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 desire--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...?
