|A Hunger Like No Other
Emmaline Troy is a timid and sheltered half vampire half Valkyrie hybrid. Since childhood, she's always wondered who her father is and his whereabouts. Through her search, she ends up in Paris where she meets a wild and rugged if not insane Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan.
He claims that she is his mate. But vampires are the sworn enemies of Lykae. Will they be able to overcome their differences and find success and happiness or will the darkness that is after them destroy any hope they have?
Unlike most of Kresley Cole's books, this story is rather simple. It is not as in-depth or complicated. It feels more like a novella than an actual full-length novel. Because of that it kind of lags in the middle but not for long. So if you've read her other books and expect the usual, you might be a little disappointed but it's a good book. But I will say that this is the first full novel that she wrote, before this she had only written a novella so let's give her a little slack.
God, I love the character of Nïx. But how couldn't you not, she's funny and crazy. She is a fairy godmother playing chess with the main characters throughout the whole entire book and I love it.
I enjoyed the slow process of Lachlain and Emmaline falling in love with each other, it didn't feel forced it was very natural. Once you gradually get to the sex scene you don't feel disappointed. It's well-written and she really takes time with the scene. You don't feel cheated.
Emmaline Is very relatable, you feel that she could be somebody that you know or even yourself. I love how Kresley Cole describes Laughlin he is magnificent yet flawed. He's also an endearing character, once you get to know him you really feel for him. The characters are well-written with distinctive personalities and depth.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. It quenches my paranormal romance thirst. But I normally feel that way with all of Kresley Cole's books specifically this series. I have a strong connection with the main character of Emmaline.
Specifically, because she reminds me so much of myself. Especially in my younger years. it's really an all-around good book with a good passionate love story that'll keep you wanting to read more of Kresley Cole's books.
This is an amazing book if you really love paranormal romance. It is a good standalone book. So you don't have to feel obligated to read the rest, even though it is part of a series by Kresley Cole. It is short enough that you can read in a day and get your thirst for paranormal romance quenched.
