Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Marguerite, the daughter of a wealthy senator, has little interest in the socialite life her father wants for her. So when New Orleans friends decide to go to a bar called Sanctuary, curiosity prompts her to tag along. There she meets Wren, a shy busboy. The attraction is immediate on both sides--and dangerous. Wren is a hybrid were-animal, an outcast even in his own supernatural world, and he's been marked for death. Marguerite should leave, but their fates and hearts are now entwined, and she knows there is no turning back. In this second novel to feature the Weres, Kenyon defies expectations once again. Wren the loner plays a tortured Romeo to Marguerite's Juliet, a young man coming to terms with who and what he is and having to find his niche in the world. This depth and vulnerability of character has not been seen before in her heroes and proves a challenge for Kenyon, but the result is a thrill ride filled with magic, action, and scintillating passion.

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.

Whoa...where to start? Kenyon's latest installment to her Dark-Hunter series has to be one of the most intense, action-packed, and yet, topsy turvey reads I've seen in a long time. My interest in the series had started to wane with her last two books, but I couldn't help giving "Unleash the Night" a try, hoping it would redeem the series for me. While I wasn't completely happy with the book as a whole, there were still a lot of aspects I did enjoy.

Quick rundown on the were-hunters: Long ago, a Greek King marries an Appolite woman, one of the doomed race now known in present day as Daimons. When she dies on her twenty-seventh birthday, the king is determined not to lose his two sons to the same fate. He experiments with them, splicing there DNA with the strongest of animal DNA, in effect creating two new races of shifters. Arcadians are humans that can shift to their animal form, but retain mainly human traits and a human heart. The Katagaria retain mostly animal traits and have animal hearts. Furious with the kings tampering, the Fates decree that the two races shall forever hate one another, never resting till they have killed each other.

Wren Tigarian, whom we've seen in previous installments, is a Were-Hunter. Even more specifically, he's a Katagaria Were-Hunter. His form is half white tiger and half snow leopard, a forbidden combination in his world, making him an outcast on both sides of his family as well as in the Were world in general. Basically raised at Sanctuary, a biker bar in New Orleans, by the bear clan that owns the place, he's never known an ounce of trust for anyone he meets. Betrayed by his family in his youth, he just wants to blend into the background and not draw any notice.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sherrilyn Kenyon has created a successful and often wonderful series in her series of various Dark-Hunter/Were-Hunter/Dream-Hunter series of books. Always a vivid array of characters that draw you in and keep you reading through each new storyline. I recommend if you are going to read a Sherrilyn Kenyon book you start with at the beginning to get the best idea of what is going on. You can just pick up a story and understand basics but the history that she speaks of and backstory of other characters will throw the story off a bit.

The reason I mention this is that in her latest installment Unleash the Night it revolves around Wren a damaged shapeshifter that is part human/white Tiger/Snow leopard. Wren's story is well what I expected from Ms. Kenyon, a tragic hero with a sketchy past that ends up running for his life with his heroine Maggie, the daughter of a Blue blood senator and his Beauty queen deceased wife.

I liked the characters of Wren & Maggie and was rooting for their love story, but I just felt this volume in the series didn't make the normal grade of a Dark Hunter novel. It had all of the elements and at times they came together perfectly, but it also seemed to me that Unleash the Night was rushed through as if the author needed to meet deadline and it didn't have all the strength of past books. It would look like you were getting there and then I'd turn the page and find it all wrapped up in a quick neat package. I won't give away the story others other reviewers have gone over it a couple of dozen times already.

I do recommend reading Unleash the Night, but in my opinion you should check a few of the others 1st and preferably in order.

However, if you don't read them in order or don't want to buy all of them (there are about 8 so far).

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this 13th installment of Ms. Kenyon's popular Hunter series, we meet two outsiders: Wren, an outcast from the Were-Hunters thanks to his freakish dual animal nature as both white tiger and snow leopard, and Maggie, a senator's daughter who feels out of place in her peers' white bread, exclusive society. By all rights, these are two people who should never have even met, much less fallen in love with each other, but they do have one common bond: Maggie was friends with Nick Gautier, who worked with Wren. When Maggie drags her snotty friends to the biker bar Sanctuary to hold an impromptu wake for Nick, her world and Wren's collide.

Maggie's friends and father are obsessed with appearances, so unruly Wren is not their idea of a good companion for Maggie, and they try to cause all sorts of problems. The remains of Wren's family want him dead so they can take control of the family business, so he's in danger every time he leaves Sanctuary. The Peltier family, who, by the laws of the Were-Hunters, must give shelter to any Were needing it, resent Wren, and want to turn him out. So there are all sorts of roadblocks on the way to happiness in this story, which are solved with a little violence, a little sex, and unusually, a little time travel.

UNLEASH THE NIGHT is a meatier and more satisfying read for me than its predecessor, SINS OF THE NIGHT. Wren and Maggie seem to feel more than Danger and Alexion did in their story. I can feel their despair and desires as if they are my own, and the way they interact with one another is very convincing and real (not to mention hot, woo! *fans self*).

The multitude of secondary characters makes reading this series from the beginning essential-then it's like seeing old friends. I love how Ms.
