Alana is a wonderful character that everyone can relate to. Practical, down-to-earth, and little bit cynical, she loves her family more than anything else. She has a psychic talent (reading people’s thoughts) that keeps her wary of getting to close to others, but that talent draws her closer to Rhys.
Rhys is a Death Hunter, a feared vampire who hunts and kills rogue vampires. He is a breathtaking good guy, mainly because he is such a bad boy! He is a killer, dominant and ruthless, but he had me breathing hard and heavy. He makes no apology for his aggressive nature, and goes after what he wants. And what he wants, other than to catch a rogue murderer, is Alana.
Alana is mostly a loner, by nature and circumstance. She works with horses because then she doesn’t have to deal with people. When she meets Rhys, who is in Kentucky about a horse, there is instant attraction between the two. That attraction is strengthen every time they see each other. Alana tries, in vain, to fight the growing feelings Rhys arouses, but with Rhys’ forceful personality there is just no way she can win. Perfect setting for a story by itself, right? Well, add in a few mysteries, like who is Alana’s real father and an unknown murdering vampire, and you have the beginnings of something even better - it is called KENTUCKY HUNGER.
The plot was gripping. It kept my attention and kept me turning the pages well past the time I should have turned in for bed. The characters felt so real, I actually had a couple of déjà vu moments. Ms. Danu writes such that you are sucked into the characters’ lives, and they feel like people you know. The sex in this book was a whole lotta naughty, and oh-so-good. The descriptions and dialogue are vivid. The world-building in the novel was great and definitely deserves a second glance. I hope to see a series emerge from this. Great story! I can‘t wait to read more.
