Book Debate: A Hunger Like No Other

Recently, Ana finished reading A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole, and loved it. On the other hand, I had read the book and despised it. Since this is too good an opportunity to pass up, we decided to bust out the gloves and have a formal pro/con debate.

Title: A Hunger Like No Other

Author: Kresley Cole
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Stand alone or Series: First in the Immortals After Dark series
Summary: (from simonsays.com)
Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire — unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death. 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?

I will be taking the the attacking side, while Ana takes the defense. Let the debate begin!

    I have to say that while I haven’t read this particular book by Kresley Cole, I haven’t been terribly impressed with the books I have read by her. I recently decided to stop the painful process of reading her stuff anymore; it’ll save me time and money. I’m happy Thea made the statement regarding the “accent” by the protagonist, as it is very distracting; unfortunately she’s not the only author to do this.

    Very lively debate, I’m happy I was directed to this site 🙂

    Now this is more like it! I do love a good debate. Doesn’t sound like it’s up my alley -but I feel like I got a pretty good sense of the book just from reading these debates.
