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?

This book came highly recommended by one of my favorite authors and you know what, the plot sounds AMAZING! The hero, Lachlain, who is a Lycan has been in prison for almost a hundred years when he scents his mate and chews off his foot to escape. The heroine is a half vampire, half Valkyrie. Vampires and Lycans are at war with each other. Amazing, right? WRONG!

I was hugely disappointed. I had such high expectations and I ended up being let down. I liked Lachlain but I HATED Emmaline!

Sure, the book started out really good but by the quarter mark, it quickly went downhill from there.

Not to mention the horrible female voice Robert Petkoff used! UGH, x 2000000!!!

I’m not even sure if I want to read the other books in this series.

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.

Penny Reid has been highly recommended to me for a while now and when Neanderthal Seeks Human was free on Amazon, I decided to download it.

Good thing I didn’t purchase this book because it ended as a DNF for me! I mean, I liked the quirkiness and the uniqueness of the heroine but man was she SUPER CLUELESS! And she was supposed to be really smart! So, no. This turned me off and I finally decided to file it under DNF.

I’m upset just thinking about this book!

  1. I enjoyed Kresley Cole’s book, but read it years ago. But I didn’t love it, I had my own issues with it. Not all books in that series works for me.

    I have read Neandarthal Seeks Humanm, but have heard many mixed reviews, so not sure I will pick it up. The clueless ones really can drive me nuts.

    • Ugh. I know. I guess if I read Kresley Cole’s book years ago, it would be different. I’m also not sure if I would read the rest of the series now. I think it is the same for the Knitting in the City books.
