Set is a warrior chosen by the sun god Ra to protect mortals from the undead who hunt them. That is what he knows. Unfortunately, having watched his leader, a fellow warrior, succumb to a destined mate, Set also knows he will someday suffer the same fate. Set doesn’t need nor want a mate. He’s just fine on his own, thank you very much. But when a spitfire of a woman is thrust into his life, whose sole mission seems to be to knee him in the groin and escape every chance she gets, he’s intrigued. A lot.
Desiree may have lusted after Set from afar for months, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to go willingly with the behemoth of a man spouting a whole bunch of garbage about immortality, an ancient Egyptian god and her destiny as his mate. No doubt he’s two bricks short of a load. But when they touch, passion like she’s never known consumes her. Perhaps he’s not so crazy after all…
Mate Hunger is book two in the Ra’s Chosen series. After reading the first book, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. While this was a well-written, satisfying book, I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t as intense and exciting.
I am very interested in the plot line for the series: Ra’s Chosen Warriors and the evil they fight, but Mate Hunger was more focused on the relationship between Set and Desiree. The other characters didn’t play as big a role in this story. In addition, there were fewer twists and turns, as well as less action.
That being said, I still enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the rest of the series. A few things have been hinted at in both books, and I can’t wait to see what is really going on and how it will all play out in the end.
