“Kenyon is the reigning queen of the vampire novel.” ―Barbara Vey, Publishers Weekly
“An engaging read.” ―Entertainment Weekly on Devil May Cry
“Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic, sexy, and relentlessly imaginative. These are not your mother's vampire novels.” ―The Boston Globe on Dark Side of the Moon
From the Publisher
Her fans are not alone in acknowledging her rare talent. Critics, reviewers, peers and fans have awarded these books such top honors as RWA's Top Ten Books of 2002 (Fantasy Lover), RT Booklover's Reviwer's Choice Awards, and the Dark Hunter books stormed the Paranormal PEARL Awards by taking 4 out of 9 of the awards, with a fifth Dark Hunter nominee receiving an Honorable Mention.
These books burst with the kind of sarcastic humor that has made Buffy the Vampire Slayer popular, while keeping the sensuality and comedic often poignant adult situations of Sex and the City. As the author's website proudly proclaims, "Over Two Million Visitors Bitten. Will You Be Next?"
I hope you will join us as the legacy of the Mad, Bad and Immortal dark protectors continues with this latest installment.

Talon, the main character in Night Embrace, appeared as a side kick for Kyrian in Night Pleasures. Talon was a Celtic tribal chieftan and warrior who was killed by an evil cousin who wished to take over the tribe; in the process his younger sister was slaughtered in front of him. To make matters worse, the Celtic war god cursed Talon for killing his son in a battle. Therefore, Talon is doomed to have any human that he loves die. For centuries he fights Daimons (evil soul stealing descendents of Atlantis) and is very much satisfied with his life.
Naturally, he meets his soul mate and all his carefully buried emotions come roaring back at a very inopportune time for a being whose career is defending humanity. While the characters are what could only be called ultra-alfa males they all have crippling weaknesses and the author uses humor very, very effectively to relieve the horrendously sad existence that most of the Dark Hunters live.
Kenyon's world is totally outrageous and great fun. It is a tribute to her judicious use of humor and mythology that the reader buys into the fantasy.Read more ›
Very humourous, mixed with serious feelings and plenty o' action, nothing's lacking. I've found Talon incredibly sexy since he was introduced in previous novels, and I was SO glad when this one came out. (And I could totally relate to his love for chicory coffee and beignets! YUM!)
Talon's ego in the beginning was so hilarious, especially his tripped-up thoughts on Sunshine's nonchalant attitude after their hot christening of every available surface in Sunshine's apartment.
Another thing I loved about this novel was Sherrilyn's descriptions of her characters - Sunshine being a "real woman with curves" instead of the slender sticks I usually read about, and the wolf's amazing attraction to the "plus-size model" woman. Of course, her description of Talon's nicely sculpted body wasn't bad either ;-).
I'm also glad Talon recognized his weakness of not being able to leave Sunshine...
Okay, I have NO idea what I'm trying to say but that the Dark-Hunter series is absolutely AWESOME!! If you EVER get a chance to read it, please do so, it's not a waste of time. I am also a very huge fan of Nora Roberts - and if you are, too, you're tastes probably run along the same lines so... you'll probably agree with me when I say sherrilyn kenyon is one of the best.
In this book we finally get to meet Zarek, the psychotic SOB, according to Nick. Valerius, the Roman general who both Kyrian and Julian would die to get their hands on. And Vane and his brother Fang, Katagari slayers who help Talon and Acheron more than once. These characters will turn this book into an enjoyable ride for the readers as it delves more deeply into the personalities of each one of them
This book is so multifaceted, first we have the wit and humor the characters posses, and then we have the seriousness and the danger.Read more ›
