Review

Venomous Hunger is an awesome paranormal romance that feature a romance between an alien and a human. What's interesting here is that the human, Aliena, is at a disadvantage, because she and her village are being hunted by aliens for nefarious reasons. But she's quite the fighter, and she never gave up. She's also quite loyal in protecting her people.

Kamal, on the other hand, is an Eok warrior and he also has demons driving him. But he's what Aliena needs to save her people. But dare she trust him? I love these two together, and the angst between them is complicated by the Mating Venom and other issues.

The story moves along at a steady pace, with both romantic and suspenseful moments to keep the reader captivated to the pages. I just thought the opening scene was a bit confusing, but once I'm past that, the story held me in its grip and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Though this is the second book, it's not necessary to read the first one in order to enjoy this.

Rating: 5 stars
