Al is having trouble embracing being human. The beast in him is always near the surface and hard to manage. He doesnít trust Fin, yet at the same time Al feels almost an affinity with him. The instinct to hunt has not been satisfied in 65 million years. Being with Jenna reminds Al his desire for mating hasnít been satisfied either. Al knows Jenna is a threat to the job and the Eleven. Will her desire to help get them killed? Does Alís issues stand in the way of a future with Jenna? Their future and the future of all humankind weighs in the balance.

Eternal Craving is the second installment of the Gods of the Night series by Nina Bangs. This series has a darker tone than others by Ms. Bangs, but it works. The author makes a surprise move in this book and it makes me curious as to what else she has in store for us.

A strong hero, a spirited heroine, and ruthless villains make up the cast of Eternal Craving. Readers will finish knowing that Al and Jenna are made for each other and they will be wound up for the next book.

Many characters are in this complex series so I recommend starting with the first book, Eternal Pleasure.
