Hubba hubba. A group of eleven Alpha males brought to this time to save humanity...and did I mention they're all WAY hot predators? Just yummy. "Eternal Craving" is the next book in Nina Bangs' 'Gods of the Night' series about deadly predators in human bodies fighting an alliance of evil to save humans from the end of the world as predicted by the Mayan calendar. I loved the first book and couldn't wait to get my hands on this ARC of the second in the series.

This time we learn about Al. An innoc

This is one of the most unique PNR series I've ever read. Oh, the concept of immortals coming to earth to save the day has been done before, maybe done to death, but never have the immortals been pre-historic dinosaurs!

That said, the execution of the unique idea could be a little better. I'm probably being a bit tougher than usual because I just came off of Patricia Brigg's 5th Mercy Thompson book Silver Borne (Mercedes Thompson, #5), which is a home-run according to most reviews. The difference

Fantastic Read! HOT!

Wow, what a great follow up to Eternal Pleasure. This God’s of Night series just gets better and more exciting. I couldn’t put the book down because I just had to know what was going to happen next. These dinosaurs are awesome and so savagely sexy with just one look deep into their eyes and they have you stripped and pounding into your heat in a beastly ravaging feast (imagining and licking my lips – time for a cold shower). Al and Jenna’s romance was very adventurous and I l

Great read - second book in the THE GODS OF THE NIGHT series.

The heroine of book 1 [Eternal Pleasure:] sister's has come to visit - in truth she's there to check out the new husband and the guys he works with. She finds guys who are as gorgeous as they are dangerous... and discovers her experiences with tabloid journalism haven't even skimmed the highlights of the REAL supernatural world.

The hero is Al, a man with the soul of an allosuarus and anger management issues. He and the heroine are pit

Another hot dinosaur adventure worth reading. I found this one better then the first book. It has all the predicaments as the first just pumped up more, this one carries some sad moments and more humor. You get to learn more about the Mayan prediction and more about Fin and who wouldn’t want to know more about gorgeous Fin;). I really like the new character additions Bangs adds in this book, I think it will be interesting to see them grow.

It was a little bit better than the first book in the series. She's come up with a good formula for the series. This makes the romance aspect of the story very predictable, but that's what romance series are about. There are a few interesting developments in the basic premise of "The Gods of the Night" vs. the bad guys. The Fin character is an intriguing mystery. I like the guys and the girls in this series. It still bugs me that the premise is so faulty; no one knows why the bad guys can't kill ...more

I am so conflicted about this book ... about the whole series! Some of the writing is very good, but the whole premise just stretches my imagination almost to the breaking point, which is not a comfortable position. I have become accustomed to all kinds of shape shifters and were-animals, but prehistoric dinosaurs (like there's ANOTHER kind of dinosaur?) make me want to LOL sometimes. Oh, I should also say they have souls, these dinos. Or the men's souls ARE dinosaurs ... see what I mean?

Love this STRANGE new series. I don't know how Nina does it, but she makes it not only work, but rock. This has quickly become one of my favorite series.
J. Ostrowski
Honesty time. The plot line is semi-interesting. The character relationships are poorly developed. There was some internal character development going on with Jenna that wasn't utilized as a well as it could have been. I never felt involved as a reader. And I find that very frustrating because I kept seeing so much freaking potential for a really good book. I just don't get how it's earning 4 and 5 star reviews. On the upside it wasn't a bad book. In fact I'm invested in some of the other charac ...more

Another winner from the Gods Of The Night series. I am definitely liking this set of stories about the ultimate predators brought to our time to fight the ultimate, world ending evil.

Al is not a happy former dinosaur...he misses his pack and his simple way of life. The twenty first century is not for him, and he wants to go back. That all changes when Jenna enters the picture. Jenna, Kelly's sister (the heroine from the first book, Eternal Pleasure), follows the group of 11 warriors to Philadelp

I just recently got into paranormal romance, so I'm still feeling my way around the genre. So this book was a little out of my normal reading, but I think it was pretty decent.

I loved Nina Bangs' writing style, and the idea of prehistoric beasts saving humanity was pretty original. However I just didn't love the story all that much. Granted once I got near the end I couldn't put it down.

Bangs' is a great storyteller. Her descriptions are great and her character development is awesome. The stor

Eternal Craving is the second book in the series where a group of shape shifting dinosaurs are trying to protect humanity from destruction. Jenna who is Kelly’s sister is a tabloid reporter with some deep rooted issues about her relationship with her family. Jenna has followed Kelley to Philadelphia to make sure she is ok and to see firsthand about her, Kelly’s new relationship with Ty. Meanwhile Al, the Allosaurus is not fitting in well with the group, he is moody and hostile towards Fin for so ...more

Nina Bangs always surprises me when I read her books. There’s usually a little something — the book starts out slow, a certain character bugs me, whatever — that makes me think I’m not going to enjoy the story. Next thing I know, I’m caught up in everything going on and can’t put it down. Same thing with Eternal Craving. The issue with this book? Men who shift into dinosaurs. Please.

And I’ll be damned if I didn’t love every last word of this book, despite my initial eye rolling. I kept thinking

Jenna Maloy comes to visit her sister, worried and concerned for her, so when she comes to Philadelphia, she never realized how much her life would change. Al is having a hard time learning to control his urges and instincts, having only been put into a human body only a few months ago, the hunter in him hard to keep in line at times. So when he meets Jenna, his urge to mate becomes only stronger whenever he is near her. Jenna, is shocked when she realizes what Al really is, and the kind of life ...more

Again, I am astounded. Again, the character depth and super-special-awesome plot have left me craving (haha, get it?) more. Like an addict, only without that dirty feeling. The small revelations were a delightfully tantalizing tease, miraculously manainge to neither reveal too much or too little. I appreciate the talent it takes for an author to do that, because I would probably struggle to count on one hand the number of books I've read that've pulled it off.

I really liked Al. The way his str

I love finding books about shifters...that aren't the norm.

In Eternal Craving, Al has the predatory instincts, memories and soul of predator...an Allosaurus...all shoved into the body of a man newly woken to his human existence.

Though he's learned enough to pass as a normal person, he could care less about actually being one. He just wants to kill the demons threatening mankind so he can return to his real life with his dinosaur pack.

That is, until he meets Jenna. She arrives on his doo

i read the first of the god of the night series and was excited to read the next in the series. the amalgamation of so many creatures and myths should be overwhelming but nina bangs does an amazing job of making them mesh. the only major plot blunder i didn't like was how the epic battle to banish one of the 9 immortals took place in the last 20 pages of the book and was prematurely ended. i wish it had been longer and more exciting as it should have been the climax of the story and therefore mo ...more

I remember when I picked up book one a few months back and thought Dinosaur shifters? I don't know about this. I really glad I decided to ignore that inner voice of mine and give this series a try because they are gooooood. Sexy good. Wicked good. Epic good.

I'm still slightly shocked that anyone could find a way to make dinosaurs sexy. I've always seen them as brutal, bloody, survivalists. That Nina Bangs not only made them sexy but found a way to make it believable that they have to find a way

This read was to say the least, peculiar. Paranormal is what I love, Otherkin beings with nonhuman souls in a human body, a read right up my alley. However, the non-human soul being the soul of a dinosaur? That is just a bit weird for my taste, though a very original idea I couldn't wrap my head around it and it didn't allow me to enjoy the read as much as I wanted to. Despite the whole dinosaur thing, I did like the characters themselves and it was an entertaining read. The leader Fin is a very ...more

This Eternal series of books are a bit different than her previous ones. There has been more of a dark edge to the two I have read. If you like Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter books, I think you’ll find the same type of bite to this series of Nina’s. A darkness and a sense of foreboding with these evil doers, Immortals from a different place. It’s different enough too with the guys being dinosaurs of various kinds. And yes I did the same as all of you will; I looked them up on the web to see what ...more

And now for something completely different... Ok, not completely different but certainly not your run of the mill paranormal romance novel. Nina Bangs writes fun paranormal romances with lots of sexy men & women and fun situations. The Gods of Night series is off her beaten path. Yes, there is romance and lots of creatures of the night but her sexy men are the original uber alphas and the situations they get into are a lot darker than her other series. That said I am really enjoying this ser ...more

This is book two of a buddy-warrior vampire paranormal romance series. The band-of-brothers-fighting-evil type, where one man finds his mate in each book. It's clichéd and silly (weredinosaurs? really??), but like cheap drugstore candy, it's craveable and strangely satisfying.

This is the one about Al (an Allosaurus, or something like that) and Jenna (Kelly's sister) getting together. They are in Philly this time, and by the end they off evil villain Eight. You get to learn just a smidge more ab

I liked this novel a little less than the first one of the series. The "differentness" of the paranormal flavor of the novel is a grabber, but I did not connect with the main characters of Jenna & Al as I did with Kelly and Ty in the previous novel. I kept wanting to smack both of them and say "GET OVER IT!" in regard to their hang ups.

The "bad guys can't kill humans directly" rule is starting to bug me. I want to know MORE about the background, but am learning about it much to slowly to su

This is the second book in the "Gods of the night series". A series about prehistoric predators in human form that fight evil to save the human race from the end of the world as predicted by the mayan calender in 2012. This book is about Al a predator who lives for the kill, until Fin brings Kelly's( Kelly is from the first book) sister Jenna to town. She is a reporter for "the Scene", a tabloid paper for the unexplained and weird. She notices how good looking all of the eleven are and then see' ...more

While I didn't like this as well as the first book, I'm still enjoying the series and looking forward to the next book. We got a few more inklings in this book about the over-arching story that's been stringing along between the first two books.

Al and Jenna weren't as dynamic a couple for me as Ty and Kelly. Obviously I know it's a romance, but it seemed much more formulaic. The plotline was almost the same as in the first book, so that felt a little repetitive to me. That being said, I still e

I really enjoyed this book. This is the second in the Gods of Night series. The gang has moved onto the next city, Philadelphia. Which is pretty cool since I live about 45 mins for Philly. The heroine is Jenna is the sister of the heroine from the first book, Kelly. Jenna is coming to check in on her sister. The hero, Al is benched because he has anger issues and is having trouble keeping control is his soul. So he has to babysit Jenna.
In this story you get to know the Utah raptor triplets. You

In Bang's paranormal romance novel, Al has been promised a new life as a hunter but he soon learns the rules have changed. Now he was forced to control his basic instincts--the need to kill to feed and mating. Jenna Maloy has caught his interest but she doesn't believe his story about saving souls. Somehow she manages to see through to his soul until they are stalking the dark forces that dwell in the city's shadows. Now he must battle his heart and hope that Jenna will stay with him. If she lea ...more

This is the second book in Nina Bangs, GODS OF THE NIGHT, series. I have really enjoyed both of them. There are eleven warriors all have souls of dinosaurs. Yes I said dinosaurs. I really got into these books and I know the premise is really hoakey but I just can't explain why I like them other than the characters are interesting to me. I normally do not like Nina Bangs writing. So I encourage you to give these a try, they are different than all the others out there. She is supposed to be releas ...more

DNF.
I wasn't into Al or Jenna. She was annoying, and he was supposed to be smoldering with attraction to her that I just did not feel went both ways. I don't have to have a book full of sex scenes, but it bothered me that this predator would want a heroine who wasn't even running hot and cold, more like tepid and frigid! The plot was similar to the first book, and while I find the world interesting, I would actually rather read about some of the other characters than the hero/heroine of this on

Talk about misspent youth. What did I do during those lazy summer days of childhood when I could’ve been honing my writing skills? Nothing. Okay, so I spent a lot of time dreaming I was a cowgirl with a trusty black stallion. Oh, and I read every Walter Farley horse novel. I was an only child so I relied on my imagination to supply the excitement in my life.

By high school, I’d decided to trade in
