From Publishers Weekly

Sin, a Sumerian fertility god turned Vegas casino owner, and Kat, the zealous servant of bossy Greek goddess Artemis, knock boots and kick butt in Kenyon's juicy 11th Dark-Hunter paranormal love-fest (after 2006's Dark Side of the Moon). Sin's been on the warpath for thousands of years, since Artemis stole his godhood. Sin's also upset about the disappearance of his twin brother, Zakar, and the imminent invasion of the vampiric Sumerian gallu, who plan to liberate the Dimme superdemons and destroy all humanity. Kat agrees to kill Sin before he kills Artemis, but instead the two fall in madcap love while trying to prevent Armageddon. It's just another day's work for the immortals, who act a lot like ordinary quarrelsome people with way cool superpowers. Though readers may need a scorecard to keep up with the cast, this series puts a contemporary spin on classical mythology that an increasing number of fans have found irresistible.

From Booklist

If revenge is a dish best served cold, Sin figures a few thousand years should make it good and frigid. He can't wait to kill Artemis for stealing his godhood, but first he has to deal with Earth-destroying gallu demons trying to escape their prison. As a preemptive strike, Artemis sends Katra to kill him. Realizing, though, that the gallu are the bigger threat, she willingly joins her enemy to stop them. Falling for him, however, could be the real problem. Longevity can be a series' best friend or worst enemy, yet Kenyon manages to find the middle ground in each installment in her Dark-Hunter series (immortal warriors guided by Artemis and pledged to defend humankind against vampires and other enemies), creating the wounded heroes, sarcastic humor, and adventurous romps paranormal-romance readers love while keeping any hint of sagging or self-indulgent plot at bay. As the mastermind behind an internationally popular, massively detailed fictional universe and overarching saga filling a dozen novels, Kenyon has written another fresh tale full to the brim with surprises.

Perhaps for someone who had never read any of Kenyon's Dark Hunters, this might have been a good book, but for me this was tedious. It seemed as if she had merely churned out a book in order to tie up a few more loose ends in the series which had little or nothing to do with story of the book itself. This plot did not seem to me to contribute much to the overall story arc, nor was the story particularly compelling. Although I like Ash, he is getting very boring. By the time his own book comes out, we will know almost all his backstory anyway, and not give two hoots about his future either. Sin and Kat, supposedly the main characters, were not engaging at all, despite the banter.

On a totally different note, I have to ask: Is America the only Daimon/demon infested place on earth? I mean all these gods - the Greeks, Atlantean, Sumatrean, etc. - all come from a totally different part of the world, not to mention the Dark Hunters (remember them?) who come from Africa, Europe, the Middle East. Do vampires not suck blood on the streets of Delhi? Are the inhabitants of Johannesburg immune to Daimon attacks? Perhaps Parisians have a special get out of jail free card for the end of the world?

Frankly, I am amazed Kenyon's world didn't die out centuries ago. In the beginning of this series there was one hinted cause of the Apocalypse: Ash. In this book I counted aproximately seven different ways to destroy the world: Ash, Ash's Ma; the death of Artemis; the death of Kat; releasing demon species number one; releasing demon species number two; the death of any god/goddess - yet despite the wholesale destruction of at least two pantheons, somehow the world still survives.

It seems that lately each book is getting successively more over the top.

Man, I just love it when an author releases a book in a series that answers a lot of questions. Kenyon has given us answers in spades here: who is Katra, why is Ash tied to Artemis, what is Savitar, and more. Wonderful, action packed story with the steamy romance readers have come to expect from Kenyon. My only disappointment? Kenyon introduced a "Dream-Hunter," Xipher, who I actually want to know more about (not like the disappointing Arik), that won't get his own book until 2008.

Now, please bring on Ash's story, so people can stop griping that the last two books "have too much Ash," "have too little Ash," or just weren't his story.

Eons ago, when the universe was ruled by more than one pantheon, Sin was one of the most powerful and revered Sumerian gods. However, power breeds jealousy and everyone knows how vicious those immortals could be. Befriended by the goddess Artemis, Sin had fallen prey for her charm, a mistake that would cause him dearly. Stripped of his powers, Sin found himself at the mercy of the Olympians unable to win the battle that wiped out his entire pantheon. If not for Acheron, he would never have survived. For years he has walked among us, having patiently waited for the day when he could seek his vengeance on Artemis, never anticipating the revelation that would greet him as he finally comes face to face with the goddess.

Fearing for her life, Artemis sends the one person she knows she can rely on. A former handmaiden of the goddess, Katra goes after Sin to try and thwart his plan to kill Artemis. But when she ends up being captured by Sin, she learns of the goddess' duplicity and is racked by guilt over her role in Sin's fate. To make matters worse, she also learns that the biggest threat to mankind is about to be unleashed. Knowing that Sin is the only one capable of defeating the Gallu and Dimme, Katra vows to make up for her errors by helping Sin in the upcoming battle.

We know what happens next from here on. The author tells that they have fallen in love sacrificing every need for character development so she could pen some sex scenes. Frankly speaking, it wasn't so much the characters that held my interest, but the revelations that come after. The Gallu, Dimme and Charonte, demons galore! The truth about Katra and the powerful bloodline that she possesses was a welcome surprise.

Ex-god Sin hates Artemis--he hates her a lot. After eleven thousand years, he spends most of his time thinking about how he'd still like to kill her. So, it's only natural that he want to kill Artemis's daughter, Katra Agrotera, AKA Kat. There's this pesky detail of the world ending soon with the escape of a group of demons fellow members of Sin's Asyrian pantheon locked up eons earlier, but getting revenge on Artemis would come first.

Dark hunter leader Acheron Parthenopaeus (AKA Ach) hates Artemis, too. Boy would he like to kill her--except he's also in love with her and killing her would result in his own death. Still, it bugs him that Artemis orders him around all the time. Hate, Hate, Hate.

Kat thinks of herself as a clever sarcastic person but she acts pretty juvenile--you'd think eleven thousand years or so and she'd grow up a bit. When she meets Sin, she is initially turned off--after all, he doesn't seem to care about people, employs demons, and her mother accused him of rape. But his hot (scarred) body turns her on and he does deny the rape charge. So, time to give up her eleven-thousand years of virginity and engage in some hot sex. Not to mention working with him to save the world--when Sin isn't being all protective.

There really is the core of a great story here, along with some intriguing world-building. I enjoy the way the various pantheons mingle and battle with one another. Author Sherrilyn Kenyon writes hot love scenes and her action scenes aren't bad either. Unfortunately for DEVIL MAY CRY, there are too few of those action scenes and too much time spent with Sin obsessing about all the betrayals in his live (once in eleven thousand years--oh the pity).
