A serial killer is on the loose, a murderer who has a taste for blood, literally, and sorcerer Dain Hawkins is determined to find the unhuman killer. Forensic anthropologist Vivien Cairn is blacking out, losing hours of her life, sure she must be losing her mind. When the seductive Dain comes into her life, saving her from a demon attack, she feels more than gratitude, he causes her libido to rev up, making her hunger for him in the most inopportune time, she feels as if she is starving and only he can feed her. Dain feels the same desire, but knows that something is off with Vivien, there seems to be a darkness around her. Is Vivien's sanity at stake? Can Dain feed her, satisfying her hunger, while keeping perspective and his life?
I absolutely devoured DEMON'S HUNGER! I was captivated by Eve Silver's realm of sorcerers and demons, living out their lives in our world, seeing how the light battled the dark. The characters were engaging and the sexual tension between Dain and Vivien was hot hot hot. Dain's battle against the demons and his attraction to Vivien, the woman who may be his enemy, fascinated me. I liked the mystery of not really knowing who the evil was coming from, but realizing that the serial killer they searched for wasn't just killing random victims, but humans who had inflicted harm onto those weaker than themselves, not that it made the killing okay, but it gave the killer more depth and took an edge off the malevolence.
The only reason this didn't give a perfect score, was because I felt that the book jumped around a little to much for me, though I was thankful that it did because one of the particular jumps happened at a time I was supposed to be getting ready for work, it jolted me enough out of the story so that I could bear to put the book down and wasn't too late in the office-though it didn't stop me from wanting to pick it right back up!
I was drawn into the lives of the secondary characters and look forward to more of this series, eager to see where Ms. Silver takes this universe and their battle of good vs. evil.
