Jenika Snow's novel, "The Craving" is really quite the read. I found it a little slow at first as I was not used to the first person writing, but as the story went on, I became more and more involved in the storyline. I loved how Jenika developed Payton's character and Payton's acceptance of Kristofer as their romance grew. There is a surprise towards the end which I'll leave for the reader to find. All in all, "The Craving" is a good novel and well worth reading.
Payton has isolated herself from everyone and everything she has ever known after a vampire brutally killed her mother. Living in the mountains, away from civilization, is the only way Payton knows how to cope. When a storm blows through and she is snowed in, she won’t be alone for long.
An injured man shows up on her doorstep—a vampire. She discovers Kristofer isn’t a monster at all, but a man who has been a prisoner of his cruel brother for the last fifty years.
As Kristofer and Payton grow closer, an evil force threatens to split them apart. It isn’t until she comes face-to-face with her mother’s killer that she realizes she and Kristofer have more in common than she thought.
