“Christine Feehan’s fans will devour this steamy paranormal treat. Juliana Stone rocks!”
—Ann Aguirre, author of Doubleblind
Debut author Juliana Stone launches her career with His Darkest Hunger, a hot new paranormal series…with a twist. His Darkest Hunger features a dark, sexy, shapeshifting hero who hungers for revenge on his ex-lover. The success of the novels of New York Times bestsellers Nailini Singh and Lora Leigh prove that shapeshifters are the next big thing—soon to rival vampires in popularity—and with this steamy tale of love on the wild side, author Stone loudly announces that she has, most emphatically, arrived.
In this grim, sexy debut paranormal, shape-shifter Jaxon Castille plots to punish his former lover, Libby, for betraying their antiterrorist mission and causing his friend's death. But once he finds Libby, long-buried feelings prevent him from pulling the trigger, and when he learns that she has no memory of him at all and that his clan's enemies, the DaCostas, are plotting against them both, he's glad he held back. Though their passion is soon sizzling again, it takes Libby and Jaxon a long time to overcome their mutual bitterness and distrust, and combine their efforts to uncover and foil the DaCostas' plan. Stone keeps things moving quickly, but flat characters, gaping plot holes, and purple prose ( There was a river of hatred, mistrust, and pain between them ) will turn many readers off.
