My husband can finally stop calling the local Books-A-Million and asking the sales clerk if she has “A Hunger Like No Other.” And, um…yeah, I definitely think the chick believes we were prank calling her.
But anyway…I finally got my hands on Kresley Cole’s A Hunger Like No Other. I’d been wanting this book ever since I read an excerpt from this paranormal romance in the April issue of the Romantic Times.
Here’s the premise of the story (and don’t worry, I won’t give away any spoiler information): The hero, Lachlain, King of the Werewolves, discovers that his destined queen is Emma, a half-vampire, half-Valkyrie. Lachlain hates vampires–he’s just spent the last 150 years being tortured by them, so when he finds out that his mate is one of the hated breed…well, he’s less than thrilled.
I absolutely LOVED this book. Yes, the beginning is dark, but that darkness is an integral part of Lachlain’s character. This story is the second of Kelsey’s new paranormal series. The first tale–The Warlord Wants Forever–appeared in the anthology, Playing Easy to Get. And, yes, I also really, really enjoyed the Warlord tale.
Kelsey Cole has created a wonderful new world, a true place of lore. And now, in addition to my Dark Hunters and my Carpathians, I’ll be addicting to reading about Valkyries, too.
