Editorial Reviews



"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 Back Cover

In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow:

Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.

But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it's my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling.

Or so I thought until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger-it's not just her name, it's how she lives her life. She doesn't trust me at all. And who could blame her? She alone knows that I'm here to be judge, jury and most likely executioner of her friends. Yet she is my key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die.

Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead. But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I've ever loved?

"Kenyon is a master at creating spunky characterizations and cinematic action scenes spiked with wry humor."
--Publishers Weekly on Kiss of the Night

More About the Author

The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she's found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than thirty million copies of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

Her books appear regularly at the coveted #1 bestselling spot. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters, The League, Chronicles of Nick and Beladors. Since 2004, she has placed more than 80 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga.

Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel and her Dark-Hunter novels are now a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins, and her Chronicles of Nick series is adapted by Yen Press. Her Dark-Hunters and Chronicles of Nick series are both soon to be major motion picture releases.

Alright we've all been waiting ages for it, and while I can not say that Sins of the Night was the best book in the series, I can say they I hungrily devoured it in 2 days of rabid reading. If you are not familiar with Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series or missed the last book - STOP! You will be completely confused by the back story and won't be able to properly enjoy this book. It is not a stand alone novel! Go back and read all the yummy books in this series first in order to properly enjoy. That said...

Alexion is not your average Dark-Hunter. In fact he's something all together "other". And while he may not seem the most intimidating of our deadly supermodel like heros, he can be the most hazardous to your health. Dangeruese, our first starring role female Dark Hunter, learns this first hand when the two souless lovers fall for each other. As an assasin for Acheron who only comes out to play every few centuries Alexion could wipe out the entire Dark-Hunter race with a thought.

If you've enjoyed learning more about this mythical culture, hot love scenes, charonte demons, Simi's lust for QVC, or want to know exactly what the hell is happening with poor Nick Gautier buy this book! You'll enjoy it. You also need to figure out exactly where you've read about Alexion before. Trust me he is a memorable character- only under his original name from thousands of years ago. I won't spoil the surprise!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this latest installment of the Dark-Hunter story we are not only treated to the "Beginning" but we are given a little bit more information regarding the legend of the Dark Hunters and we are introduced two amazing characters that will truly touch the reader. This is the first Dark Hunter story that made me cry!!!

Alexion has come to Mississippi to judge those Dark Hunters that are entertaining the idea of a revolt against Ash. Alexion has been sent to Danger, a Dark Huntress who still manages to retain a love of "life" despite the downside of being immortal. She makes Alexion feel "alive" for the first time ever. This man is different from any other man she's ever known. Who is he and what is he? Will she be able to help him at the same time protect her damaged heart from being broken yet again?

This like every other DH read is very engaging. Ms. Kenyon though this time around has created characters that will truly touch the reader. You will feel their pain, happiness, and love. She has given us a little more insight into Ash, and still manage to leave an air of mystery. This is one series that I highly recommend. Each book is amazing and this is a fine addition to anyone's personal library!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been a huge fan of the Dark-Hunter series from the beginning, but this most recent installment was sadly disappointing. The story begins with Ash granting Alexion permission to leave the realm of Katoteros to avert a Dark-Hunter coup in Mississippi, which is being spurred on by Ash's nemesis, Stryker. Alexion wants to intervene to save an old friend of his from making a terrible mistake by believing Stryker's lies. It seemed like a good story line, except that it required the reader to really empathize with Alexion, something the book really failed to do.

Against this somewhat shaky plotline is the romance of Alexion and Danger. These are two of the blandest and least interesting characters in the Dark-Hunter world. Alexion seemed fairly resigned to his fate, and spent an inordinate amount of time quoting Ash, which made me wonder if Alexion had a personality and thoughts of his own. For Danger, I was expecting a smart-mouthed spitfire, and she failed to deliver on that front. She went along with Alexion's plans rather easily, and lacked that biting personality that all previous Dark-Hunters possessed.

As usual, Ash performed one of his deus ex machina endings, although in this case it wasn't quite the one you would expect, and for that I must give SK credit for breaking from her normal mode. However, as I was completely indifferent to the characters, it really did not have the impact it should have.

For those who are huge fans of the DH world, you may want to read this book for the information it reveals about Ash and the always irrepressible Simi. If you are looking for a good romance, though, I would give this one a miss.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Sins of the Night we're introduced to a new Dark-Hunter character, rejoicing in the somewhat unlikely name of Danger. (Her real name, Dangereuse, is no less likely, as it happens). She's based in Mississippi, and Dark-Hunters in the area are rebelling against Acheron. He's a Daimon in disguise. He's going to betray them all. He's going to kill them. He'll send his messenger of death, a man in a white suit, to murder them. So, they are arguing, they need to join with the Daimons and fight Acheron.

Danger isn't sure what she thinks of all this - but she knows exactly what's happening when a man in a white suit mysteriously appears in her home. She knows that he's come to kill her. So she kills him first... and is then astounded when, after turning to dust, he strolls back into her living-room.

Alexion is no ordinary man. In fact, Alexion isn't even his name; it's his title. He's Acheron's right-hand man and enforcer. When Dark-Hunters step out of line, Alexion is sent in to kill them. The only problem with this is that it's the first time we're seeing Alexion! He supposedly has lived in Kalosis with Acheron and Simi for centuries - so why has he never appeared in earlier books? Why, in fact, were we told in Dance with the Devil that when a Dark-Hunter goes bad there is a complex judging process?

Okay. So, if we can overlook the reversal of Kenyon's own canon, Sins of the Night becomes the usual fun and excitement we can expect from Kenyon. Alexion and Danger are highly attracted to each other, but Danger is wary of casual sex and won't start a relationship which has no future. They both know it has no future because Alexion can't survive on Earth, in the guise of a mortal man, for more than a couple of weeks.
