Publisher's Summary

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?

My new favorite narrator!

After my huge disappointment with the narration of Cole's prequel The Warlord Wants Forever, I was ready to be disappointed again. How wrong I was!
A romance star is born and his name is Robert Petkoff.
I'm not even half way through the audiobook A Hunger Like No Other and I felt compelled to write a review. In this first book in the Immortals After Dark series, many characters are introduced and most are female. This could be a challenge for a male narrator but Petkoff does not disappoint. Each female character I've heard so far is recognizable and distinct. And his characterization of the male lead Lachlain is spot on; his Scottish brogue is smooth and sexy. Timing and pacing is excellent. Petkoff is an accomplished narrator, but this appears to be his first step into the Romance genre. I hope he continues to narrate this series.

HOLY SHIATE!

SHE HAS AN ARSE MEN SHOULD WRITE SONNETS TOO.
This was a good story. It kept my interest from start to finish. Romance is not my normal genre, but I like to check out different things. I liked this for a couple of reasons. A lot of the book is from the man's perspective and the Valkyries. Valkyries are kick ass warrior women, you don't want to mess with. I thought it was an interesting study in a man's lust. Sometimes women don't understand how much men think about sex and how it affects our everyday actions. At the beginning Lachlain comes off as a real A hole, but by the end, Emmaline is the A hole. She absolutely tortures the guy, leads him on, just to say no at the last minute and he knows her body is wanting him. I lost count of how many times they almost had sex.

NOW SHE BELIEVES I'M A LIAR, PROBABLY BECAUSE I LIED TO HER
The beginning to this is a little confusing on how you should react. Lachlain knows that Emmaline is his mate for life. He has just been tortured for 150 years by vampires. Werewolves and vampires have been at war. Emmaline is a vampire. He is upset that she is his mate, yet he has no choice in the matter. He has waited hundreds of years for her and only her. He expected a big tough she wolf, instead he has this 5'5", 100 hundred pound, spoiled, puny vampire. She does not realize that she is his mate. This leads to a scene where he forces her to get naked and too stroke him, basically rape. It is confusing for him, for her and for us the readers.

HIS ERECTION WAS ABOUT TO RIP THROUGH HIS PANTS
Here are some things that made me think: vampires playing x-box, lack of privacy, immortality and how that makes torture so much worse, and the amount of torn clothing. This kept my attention from start to finish, it was very well written and it had an actual story or plot. I will continue the series.

The narrator was excellent.

This is my first Kresley Cole book

If you could sum up A Hunger Like No Other in three words, what would they be?

Disturbing, Funny, Hot

What did you like best about this story?

How Emmaline changes from a doormat into a headstrong and kickass woman

What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His female voices where as distintive as the male and his scottish accent was well done.And oh wow can he do hot and sexy ;-)

Any additional comments?

The only reason it didn't get full ratings was the start. I almost stopped listening because the relationship started off abusive and that was what I found a little disturbing.I'm glad i kept going however as it got so much better

Unforgettable

IAD series from Kresley Cole is my absolute favourite paranormal/Supernatural serial. It has everything, action packed, suspense, humour, thrills and beautiful kick ass heroines and most of all those gorgeous hunky Lykae and dark brooding Vampires (sighs) ;) and Robert Petkoff omg he is one amazingly talented man, his voice is deliciously sexy and his voice makes my toes curl :P absolutely magnificent thank you both xox
