Review by: Tiger Lily
Duty-bound and loyal Xevera Nanay must come to terms with her heritage of betrayal and treachery when a rare sentinel condition initiates a dangerous and primordial hunger in her that must be fed…by a human.
His conception the result of a rape, Michael Constantine knows what it's like to be unloved and unwanted. When his mother is finally committed after suffering a mental breakdown, he is left an eight-year-old at the mercy of the state's foster system.
Michael, however, is a survivor and the only one in the world who ever believed his mother's story about being attacked by an "other-worldly being." Now an FDNY paramedic, he has dedicated the last twenty-five-years of his life to finding answers and exacting revenge.
But when he is faced with Xevera, a distant cousin of the very being who is responsible for fathering him, will he be able to survive…a sentinel's hunger?
Michael Constantine is part alien and part human. Xevera Nanay is all succubus. Mix the two, and you have sparks, shrieks, and a heck of a story!
Readers can relate to the timely struggle to accept others for who they are instead of disliking the color of their skin. I enjoyed the scene on the mental bridge where Xevera comes to Michael in his moment of tension and need. It reminded me of the special times when lovers share words without any and just as beautiful. The writing is spicy and blatant, but it only keeps the story running along at a fast clip.
Michael’s character craves order and restraint – oh and he harbors a strong dislike for anything demonic or alien. But as he spends time with Xevera, his hate battles with his desire to slake her body. Women want heroes with slightly rough edges that we can imagine smoothing out for them and this story delivers.
If you like fantasy with a sexy twist and a blazing hot hero, then Sentinel’s Hunger is the novel for you! I give this book 4 cherries.
