    I've been following the progress of Hunger Pangs since it started as a joke on Joy's blog, and since the first teasers were posted I was looking forward to what would come out of it. It didn't disappoint. The main characters were interesting, multi-dimensional, a...

    A sweet enough journey with some interesting world-building, and characters you can root for, but epically uneven with regards plot and pacing. It was originally published as fic and you can tell - the doodling episodic quality hasn?t been edited out, especially in the later parts an...

    This was really great, it was fun and engaging and a joy to read. I loved the characters and the world-building BUT it ends so abruptly I have to dock a star. I was honestly shocked when I realised there wasn't any more. I'm still not convinced that maybe the wrong versio...

    "As it happens, Eyrie used to be regarged as sacred by some of the werewolf clans before, uhm..." [Vlad] coughed delicately. "Before they were thrown off the land to make room for a vampire colony? Yes, I know. My mother's people were among them." &quo...

    It has been so long since I started reading a book that I tried to read slower because I was desprate to keep experiencing it for just a few moments longer. Demorra has a beautiful style of writting that is both witty and heartful. They pull you in quickly to care about the colourf...

    Absolutely loved it! I have been waiting for Joy to grace us with this book for a while and I couldn't be happier with the result. Knowing there will 100% definitely be more of this is just the cherry on top because I am DREADFULLY IN LOVE with Vlad and Nathan both and I strong...

    Worth the wait I?ve been waiting for this book forever, and let me tell you, it?s been worth it. It?s so worth it it will also be worth to wait for the next one where we will get triple the action and further delicious worldbuilding. I hadn?t had the energy to read in weeks ...

    I was told this was a polyamorous MMF paranormal romance but really it was MM and I therefore feel extremely robbed. This may be where the series is headed but Ursula was barely on page for the story and didn?t spend any meaningful time with Nathan and Vlad until the very end. And th...

    Practically perfect in every way Although I probably shouldn?t have used a Mary Poppins quote in the headline since it?s nothing like the Mary Poppins stories. It?s far more like Terry Pratchett?s work but with much more queer rep and sex. The world Joy is building is utterl...

    Incredible Do you ever encounter a book that seems tailored to you precisely? Because wow, if someone wrote a book specifically designed for me to love it, I still would not have liked it as much as Hunger Pangs. Politics! Austenian town gossip and social posturing! Vampires! We...

    I reached the end of Book 1, and said to myself, "Is that it?" Don't get me wrong, I adore Joy's writing, and I fully empathise with her health struggles et al. over the last 4 years; in particular her difficult decision to split this first manuscript into two ...

    I really enjoyed this story and the characters were whole and real and by far the best part. Two things though: I found the start a little slow, though it just seems to be me, and I felt like it ended very abruptly. In fact, I looked through the contents to double check I was truly at ...

    It's such a pity you can't give more than 5 stars, because this book deserves, like, 12 of them. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of romance, but this book entranced me! The characters are amazing, compelling, well rounded, immersed in an intriguing world-building. You ...

    I absolutely loved it 12/1o would recommend. The characters are all so amazing and the romance is the cutest shit ive ever seen. It was so refreshing to just read about people being kind and and compassionate and just genuinely caring for one another. A lot of books have made me cry fr...

    This is SO going to be my favorite book this year I do believe that I love Joy Demorra in all the appropriate ways a stranger can love an author over the vastness of the internet. I am so glad that I stumbled upon her blog years ago and I do hope that she continues to write this lov...

    I'm ready to read it again already I have been waiting for this book to be released, I've followed Joy for a long time on social media so I was thrilled to finally be able to sink my teeth (heh) into this book. I eventually put the book down at 2am, and only because I had ...

    I read this entire book in roughly four hours. It's that good. I never even had to pick up my bookmark. I already knew that I'd like the main characters, based on what Joy has posted about them over the past few years I've been following her on tumblr, but I didn&apos...

    This book was such a fun break. The characters are great and they get the development they deserve. Their relationships are wonderful, and I was so happy to see a loving negotiation of boundaries before the leads fell into bed together. The world building is really interesting and I ...

    In all my years lurking around Tumblr and hearing about the development of Hunger Pangs, I never imagined I would love the finished book so much. Every character was a whole, lovingly created person, and I just adored Nathan, Vlad, and Ursula to death. The worldbuilding was intricate a...

    Fantastic. Amazing. Phenomenal. PERFECT. I would not change a single damn thing in this book. The plot, the writing style, the characters, the way things were approached with care and caution and researched to be accurate was just *chefs kiss* and the actual realistic timeline for ...

    As the author describes it, this is a ?queer, disabled-centric, polyamorous love story.? As a queer someone that does battle with chronic illness and injury, I was utterly unprepared for how deeply affected I would be seeing characters like me in print. It took me a little bit o...

    You Won?t Be Able To Put It Fown So amazingly good, I stayed up entirely too late to read this and I?m absolutely ravenous for the next one. Really wishing I had gotten the hardcover version when it was available on Joy?s Patreon now...next book. This book kept me absolutely r...

    Stayed up until five I'd pre ordered this book and it auto downloaded at midnight. At 2am I remembered I had work in the morning. At 4am I told myself that I really had to go to sleep. I think I drifted off around five , still holding my kindle. I love the world building, I l...

    Read the first few chapters as an eBook, then decided to give myself a present for making it to the new year and bought the paperback. Managed to restrain myself till it arrived and today I finished the whole rest of the book in one sitting. 1000000/10 would recommend. I am LOVING the ...

    As excellent as I'd hoped I follow Joy in Tumblr, and seeing her updates about the novel were certainly enough to catch my attention. Admittedly, Romance is not my usual genre, but I ate this up in all my free time today. I will certainly be investing in a physical copy when th...

    I have.. A MIGHTY NEED Just how can I properly state how good this book is. From the worldbuilding to the casual punnage sprinkled in to the wildfire of a romance! Ugh!! I can't wait to read the next one. I'm buying and reading Crewl Intentions right now because I need so ...

    Hunger Pangs: True Love Bites is one of the most interesting books I've read in a long time. It moves skillfully between a narrative around chronic illness and pain, to one of ADHD and self-loathing, to an emotional (and kinky!) dynamic, to a great, impending, world ending terror ...
