Review of A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark #01) by Kresley Cole


A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, #01)A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Buy on Amazon

Let me start off by saying that this is the first paranormal and the first paranormal romance book I have read, so my review is going to be shaded by that. You can think of this as a guy’s first impression of the PNR world. Also, the reason I am reading this book is because a dear friend recommended it to me to start researching the world of paranormal creatures. With that out of the way, let’s get to the review.

A Hunger Like No Other has two characters I disliked a lot right from the start. Lachlain is the epitome of an alpha male, who thinks he is a gift to the world and women in particular. He is a Lykae (werewolf) leader who has been imprisoned in hellish conditions for 150 years by vampires, and escapes from there when he scents his true mate. Also, he is over 1,200 years old, just keep this in mind. I actually liked how the author described the pain and anguish that Lachlain had to face while being held there. What I did not understand was why he did not attempt to get out sooner, if he was in such pain that the only thing keeping him sane was thought of revenge. I think revenge is a huge motivator, which should have given him the incentive to break out. But … moving on.

Interview with Kelsey Miller, Author of Retribution


Today, I have with me author Kelsey Miller. She has started on the path of being self published at a very young age and I can see her doing great things.

This is a really fun interview, and I loved some of her answers! So, without much delay, lets just right in!

Interview with Kelsey Miller,

Author of Retribution

Lets start with a question I always ask first. Describe your book and what genre would you classify it into?

My book is a paranormal thriller for young adults. It’s about a vampire who hates being a vampire and a werewolf who shifts into his human form when he’s around her.

How did you come up with the idea for the book?

It’s funny, really. Somehow the topic of vampires wormed its way into my mind. I began thinking of all the vampire characters I had read who drank blood, even ones that only drank animal blood (I think you know which one I’m talking about). Yet, I had never come across a vampire who hated being one. And from there the idea snowballed.

About RETRIBUTION BY KELSEY MILLER

More cunning and intuitive than the other wolves in his Family, Faolan has never had a problem killing their Vampire enemies. Yet even he is unprepared for the two Changelings–newly turned Vampires–who attack him one day during his patrol. The Changelings make no move to kill Faolan, and puzzled by their strange behavior, he flees. Before the wolves can determine the cause, Faolan is attacked again.

Faolan barely has time to parry the Vampire’s blows before he is ripped from his wolf form. Cowering as a human, Faolan waits for death, yet the Vampire inexplicably spares his life–but her action comes with a price.

The Vampire claims she does not drink blood. Instead, she has vowed to kill her nemesis, Hunter, an elusive vampyre with special abilities responsible for a tragedy the Vampire refuses to disclose. She compels Faolan into joining her on a week-long journey to acquire information from Hunter’s retired executioner. Faolan’s father forces him into going, and after the Vampire saves his life, Faolan realizes that the two of them will be partners for much longer than seven days.

Faolan and the Vampire are bound together by a force older than any of them can imagine, and only they can hope to defeat Hunter. However, the Vampire has not been entirely truthful. What is she keeping from Faolan? And will he be able to learn her secret before both of them are killed?

The Brave New World of Paranormal Fiction


The Brave New World of Paranormal Fiction

Day Walkers? Synthetic blood? The literati have released vampires from daily confinement in their coffins, turned their blood lust into a ‘beverage preference’ and generally overhauled one of literature’s longest-running and most hallowed of paranormal traditions. Will our silver bullets, stakes, hammers and holy water become charming, but ineffectual, relics as well? Is this a good thing or bad? Or is “unforgivable” more like it? Discover what our panel of paranormal authors have to say on the subject.

The novelists gathered here, Kelsey Miller,Danielle Blanchard Benson ,Graeme Reynolds, Jodine Turner and Arshad Ahsanuddin, are five of dozens of up-and-coming indie authors featured in “The Last Way Station Mega Book Tour.” This tour represents a new concept in virtual book touring: multiple authors participating in tag-team guest blog tour stops.
