Eve is out for vengeance. Betrayed and turned into the very thing she hunts, she wants revenge. Tor has one simple task, retrieve Eve and bring her back to Oslo to be with her family. Not so simple when Eve has an agenda…and so do the people out to kill her. Tor is a man of discipline and never strays from his mission. However, all the rules are suddenly thrown out the window when he must protect Eve from the man who betrayed her. As they fight for their lives, something begins to grow between them. Now the question is, can they survive and be together or will the man who betrayed her succeed building a new army of hybrid vampires and destroy them all. I simple LOVE Ms. Heaton’s books. She has never disappointed me and Hunger is absolutely no exception. LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this book!!! The main characters, Eve and Tor, are totally kick ass. Both hunters and they are nothing to screw around with. As the story progresses, there is the perfect softening of them as their love develops without turning them into wimpy characters. (I hate when they happens) The bad guys are wicked bad and truly get what they deserve. No I won’t tell you what happens however I will say it hand-pumping perfect. On a side note…Eve’s ex is Adam. Yup, that had me giggling on how messed that up that is. There’s so much action with the perfect build up to the epic ending that I was hard pressed to put it down. Ms. Heaton even managed to find a way to inject a new spin on vampires and their creation that I hadn’t encountered before. That pretty rare considering how much PNR I read. How did I miss Ms. Heaton released a series! I am kicking myself right now because Hunger totally rocks! I have got to go back and start the Vampires Realm series from the beginning. Okay yes, Hunger works well as a stand-alone but why read this by itself when I’m sure the rest of the series will make this book so much better. As for you the reader and my opinion of what you should do…READ. THIS. NOW. I received this book from JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars– 5, Flames – 3
This is the eighth book in the Vampire Realm Series. I loved it! Eve is a fantastic character. She is Lilith's sister (from Seventh Circle, 4th book) and a vampire. She is strongly driven by revenge, but she also is determined to a fault and has a fiery temper. I loved this character. I can understand her desire for revenge, but I do not condone this type of violence. Nothing good ever really comes out of acting on it. Tor is a powerful guard in the Vehemens household. He is rather taciturn and brooding, but I loved his intensity. He is a follow the rules kind of guy, but is willing to break them on occasion. Sent to deliver Eve to her sister, Tor finds himself conflicted between his obligation and his emotions. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book, as I love the series so far. Hunger didn't disappoint! I started to read this book and struggled to put it down; I was hooked from the first page! The story is told from both Eve and Tor's point of view, which gives the reader an insight into their thoughts and feelings. It was nice to meet Oneiric (Eve and Lilith's father) again, but I would love to visit with him a bit longer. He intrigues me, so I hope that the author would consider writing his story one day, even if it is not part of the series. This story was an exciting roller coaster ride of danger, adventure and romance. The story also brings together a few vampires from the other bloodlines, and it was interesting to see how they worked together as a team of Law Keepers. They are Vincent (Caelestis), Serge (Validus) and Daemon (Aurorea). They are all dangerous in their own way. Vincent is more relaxed and is younger than his work mates. I really liked him. Daemon, on the other hand, is more intense and deadly. He scared me! However, these guys are saints when compared to Adam and his madman attempt to create human/vampire hybrids turned vampire hunters. He is evil personified! There are some amazingly described scenes that made me feel like I was really there. The rescue scene in the warehouse was exciting, and it certainly got my heart racing! There are also some scenes of a sensual nature that definitely got my heart pounding! The intense attraction between Eve and Tor just about scorched the pages! *Fans face* The end of the book does not end in a cliffhanger (most of the series doesn't either), but this does not mean that there will not be any more books in the series (I hope!). This book can be read as a stand alone, but it would be better to read the other books in the series first, to get a fuller feel of the characters and the world they live in. Felicity Heaton has written another fantastic erotic paranormal romance. I love her writing style, which is fast paced, exciting and believable. She is number one on my Favourite Authors List. As this is an erotic paranormal romance with explicit scenes, I do not recommend this book to younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love erotic paranormal romances full of action, adventure, sexy vampires and werewolves. - Lynn Worton
I have missed The Vampire Realm Series! This latest book, Hunger is exceptional. What happens when a vampire hunter, Eve, is betrayed and becomes the one thing she loathes. She is not accepting things well. Enter a loyal hunter, Tor, who is duty bound to bring her to her bloodline. Fireworks and explosions, both emotionally and literally will keep you glued to this book. It is exciting, romantic, and thrilling. Another wonderful book and I can't wait to find out what happens in this epic paranormal series.
HUNGER is Book 8 in the VAMPIRES REALM series from Felicity Heaton and it takes a little change of direction from the others in the series. We first read about Eve in her sister Lilith's book SEVENTH CIRCLE (one of my favourite FH books!! <3 ) In this story, we meet Eve a few years after her turning and find out she is struggling with her new 'life'.... Tor is a Hunter for the Bloodline, closed off to others, hard-hearted and a loner. Tor has been sent by Lincoln to safely escort Eve, the Vehemen's Bloodlines 'Chosen Daughter', home. As a hunter and not a bodyguard, Tor isn't overly keen on his appointed task, but he is loyal and faithful so sets out to collect Eve. Eve has no wish to go anywhere with Tor especially not to her new 'home' and tries to avoid leaving with him... She wants nothing to do with vampires bar getting revenge on the person who is the reason she is no longer human. The story starts quickly and, as we have come to expect with this series from Felicity, is action packed, fast paced and gripping. As a result of an event early in the story Eve manages to get Tor to agree to help her with her mission to extract revenge and fulfil her desire to dole out some justice. Throughout the story there is a lot of focus on the relationship between the two main characters and we watch this develop and grow, regardless of the battle that they both fight to avoid it!!! A truly fantastic addition to the series, HUNGER is for me a 5* read and one of my top 3 favourite VR books to date..... Although it is book #8, it could very easily be read as a Standalone. ** I was fortune at receive an ARC of Hunger from the author in exchange for an honest review. **
