A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole

November 12th, 2008 by Debbie's World of Books

I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Emmaline is a half vampire/half valkyrie raised in a valkerie coven.  While doing research in Paris trying to find out who er vampire father was she is kidnapped by a Lykae (were wolf), Lachain, who turns out to be the Lykae king.  He was held captive by the king of the vampires and tortured for 150 years.  The Lykae have their mates which are their mates for life and he senses that Emma is his lifemate and manages to escape the vampires when he senses Emma.  Emma, known in her cover as basically a fraidy cat, is terrified of Lachlain and strikes a bargain with him that if he promises not to hurt her and let her go she will help him get back to his home.

Stop here if you don’t want any spoilers.

Along the way back to his home Emma slowly starts learning what type of person Lachlain is and slowly begins to subconciously trust him.  When they are ambushed by vampires trying to kidnap her she instinctively turns to Lachlain for protection.  Even though she has never before drank blood from another living being Lachlain convinces her to feed from him.  It turns out that when she drinks blood directly from someone she gains some of their memories and thus gains the memories of Lachalin being tortured.  She soon falls in love with him and then figures out that her father is the same vampire that imprisoned Lachlain, tortured him and killed most of his family.  When they are attacked again by a group of vampires she decides that she has to be the one to kill her father.  Despite being thought of as timid and too scared to hurt anyone she does kill her father and ends up happily ever after with Lachlain.

There were several other small storylines that are probably already covered or will be covered in other books.  Lachlain has one brother left alive and it looks like one of the valkyries in Emma’s coven is his lifemate.  Another coven member has fallen in love wtih a rebel vampire general and apparently the queen of the valkyries is being held captive somewhere so I’m assuming there will be a book about that.
