    3. Oh Duncan you and your naughty little thoughts, "Kimber picked up the hot dog. She brought it to her mouth and her tongue came out to lick a drop of juice at the end. Duncan bit back a groan. There was another piece of meat he'd like to see her do that to. He shifted in his seat." I mean when Kimber wants something the girl leaves no room for argument, "take a shower with me." She pressed his hand harder against her. "Take me." I mean Duncan has to let the girl know what's up sometimes, "his eye [...]

    4. This was a really cool concept: A necromancer accidentally starts a zombie apocalypse after raising a dead man to find out who murdered him. Before he can be put back down, he bites a coroner who unwittingly becomes patient zero.

    5. I was in the mood for a little vampire romance when I spotted this and thought it would be the perfect antidote to my recent reading slump. I really just wanted a book which would take me away from everyday mundane things and let's be honest that cover certainly promises delicious things! I've seen this authors work recommended and am always beyond impressed by her gorgeous covers so was extremely keen to see if the actual content would rise to meet my expectations . This is the first of a new s [...]

    9. Originally Reviewed At: Mother/Gamer/WriterRating: 3.5 out of 5 ControllersReview Source: NetGalleyReviewer: HeatherI’m not the biggest fan of zombies. This is the first one I’ve read that I’ve actually finished without losing my stomach contents. At times they seem an afterthought. But this does contain some high heat and teeters between romance and erotic romance. If you’re looking for a straight-up post apocalypse read, you won’t find it here.I’m a romance junkie. Same love differ [...]

    11. *ARC Supplied by publisher Kimberley is a necromancer and works for the local authorities. She raises the dead, but only long enough to find out who murdered them then sends them straight back to their deaths again. But what happens when one refuses to go quietly? Her last dead man wasn't her usual text book reanimation, instead it seems as though something else came through with him which ultimately leads to Kimber, somehow, being responsible for the zombie apocalypse that has destroyed the wor [...]

    12. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher through Net Galley for review.This is my first time reading a book by this author. I liked it, but didn’t love it. The writing was well done, plenty of drama and action to keep the story moving. Lots of steamy scenes too for those looking for that kind of thrill. The story started off really strong, but kind of fell flat for me in the last third of the book. Not sure what happen, maybe the sex should have been spaced out more for me, b [...]

    14. - 3 Vampire’s Hunger Stars -Vampire’s Hunger is book one in the Awakening series by Cynthia Garner. As first books go in a series this one was ok. It didn’t wow me and I probably should have read the blurb before picking this up. I am not a zombie fan.Vampire’s Hunger starts off a little slow. We have a verity of supernaturals from vampires, fae, necromancers and more. I enjoyed the verity of sup’s, but the world building was lacking. We don’t get much on the necromancers only that t [...]

    15. I gave it 3.5/5 starsCynthia Garner brings us a her take on the Zombie Apocalypse with the first book in her Awakened Series, VAMPIRE'S HUNGER. Although I ended up really liking Kimber, it took me a bit of time to warm up to her character. She is very headstrong and although that is a good trait to have, I didn't agree with some of her thoughts and decisions. Once she got over some of her issues it was much easier to warm up to her. Kimber blames herself for the situation the world is in. There [...]

    16. This is definitely an adults only read! I loved this one. It was full of action and moved very fast.I really liked Kimber. She's a very fun, sassy character who had me laughing out loud at moments. but also feeling very bad for her. She carries a lot of guilt from the apocalypse starting after she raised a man from the dead. What she thought was just a normal raising for her turned into something so wrong. Now everyone blames her for the start of the apocalypse. It wasn't in any way her fault. S [...]

    17. 3 STARS (I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review).Necromancer Kimber Treat works with the police to communicate with murdered victims to solves crimes. Her last case goes terribly wrong and the Medical Examiner is bitten by the victim. Three days later the ME is dead but not before he has bitten someone else and spread the Zombie virus.

    18. 3.5 stars-- Vampires, zombies and necromancers seem like a great combination for a story, right? Well, this one is packed with all three. Vampire's Hunger is a unique take on the zombie genre. A necromancer, Kimber Treat, mistakenly summons a dark force during a routine job in the morgue. The result is a zombie apocalypse that devastates the world. Vampires and humans are both susceptible to the zombie's bite.I enjoyed this book. I liked that the zombie's weren't initially made by a virus. I als [...]

    19. This was the first book in a new series that has humans, vampires, fey, and zombies. Oh yeah, some of the humans are necromancers. It was an alright story, nothing I haven't read before. It was a cross between The Walking Dead and Twilight. There were a few times the time line seemed off, once being the age of Duncan, the vampire. In the beginning he is telling his story and he's only been a vamp for a little over 80 years then towards the end he is said to have given his dedication to the Queen [...]

    20. This author is a amazing! I can't express enough how awesome she is. I love the twist on all her vampire books and this one is no exception. For someone to get me to read something with zombies in it is a great achievement. Her vampires are hot, sexy and complicated. And no doubt devoted to the people they love. The woman are strong, fiery and fun. These characters have so much character and dimension that I want to read about them all day. And the fae boy, yes, more of that one too please. I ca [...]

    21. Another winneris was a great start to a great new seriesOf course I expect as much from Ms. Garner.The world building was easy to understand; no over done and she was able to tell Kimber and Duncan's story while making sure we understood how the world had become undone.Duncan is definitely an alpha male but he let Kimber be the strong and intelligent woman she is.He protected her without smothering her easy task.They worked well has a team along with Kimber's bestiesNat and Aodhand let's not for [...]

    22. OMG OMG OMG!!! I loved this! How can you not? Sexy Vampires and Zombies?! Eeek. It was great! Duncan, hot sexy vampire, wants Kimber. She's a necromancer and causes a zombie apocalypse. She has a human friend, a fey friend, and one nasty Queen vamp after her! The story is exciting, erotic (but not overly dirty) and keeps you glued page after page. This is one crazy exciting book and I'm anxious to pick up the next one!!

    23. I won this book through the giveaways.I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. I don't like reading about zombies, however, once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. i really liked everything about this book. I like the sexual innuendos throughout the book. I enjoyed even the zombies in the book, mainly because this wasn't the main focus of the book. I will read the other books in this series.

    24. The relationships between the various "species" of people in this book intrigued me.I know much is said about vampires and sexuality but these relationships were shown to be erotic and constant.The things done to rid the world of zombies was imaginative and hopefully does have a far reached effect.All and all, a good read and one that keeps me thinking-where can I find one of these vampires?
