Amanda Devereaux has a crazy family. Her mother and older siblings are witches and psychics, and her twin sister is a vampire hunter. All Amanda wants is a quiet, normal life. Only when she finds herself the target of an attack meant for her twin, she wakes to find herself handcuffed to a sexy, blond stranger. He is Kyrian of Thrace. And while Amanda's first thought is that this might be another of her sister's attempts at extreme match-making, it soon becomes clear that Kyrian is not boyfriend material.
For Kyrian is a Dark-Hunter: an immortal warrior who has traded his soul for one moment of vengeance upon his enemies. Kyrian spends his eternal days hunting the vampires and daimons that prey upon mankind. He is currently on the hunt for a very old and deadly daimon named Desiderius who has deemed it sport to handcuff Kyrian to a human while he hunts him. Now Kyrian and Amanda must find a way to break their bond before they give into their dangerous attraction to one another. Or Desiderius kills them both.
Dark Hunter Series Part 2
As with all book series', it does have it's downfalls. There are so many characters intertwined with each other's stories, it can honestly be hard to keep up with who's who, sometimes. In my case, I had to go back over the earlier books, whenever someone was mentioned in the story, who had not been as popular in the previous books. With all the characters you have to keep up with, it was actually pretty hard to remember some of them when they were later mentioned. Another downfall is that in the first few books, the main characters seem to be set, that each were getting their own story in the series. Then Sherrilyn introduced more main characters, writing stories for them, rather than the mains that were already present, much to some fans chagrin. Apart from those ups and downs, the Dark Hunter series really is a must read. Reviewed by Aimee Doumergue
Dark Hunter Series Part 1
Just a few pages into the first book, and I was hooked. This series has a way of captivating the readers very quickly. If there was a single word to describe Sherrilyn's writing, it would be majestic. The adjectives used match the situation marvelously. The action scenes in this series are very entertaining. Each of the actions scenes are worded believably, and always with just the right amount of humour thrown in. Another thing I adore, is that Sherrilyn does not create her characters perfectly in this series. They all have some sort of flaw, that makes the book that much more realistic, and a better read. Not all the women in it are described like models, and not all the men are otherworldly handsome, like most romances. It's something that would make readers, who have their own insecurities, feel more comfortable with the story, knowing the perfect woman isn't always with the perfect guy. Reviewed by Aimee Doumergue
