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 Publisher

Welcome to book 2 of Sherrilyn Kenyon's exciting new paranormal vampire and demon series, Dark Hunter. Bursting onto the scene in 2002 with a Dark Hunter prequel, Fantasy Lover and the first book of the series, Night Pleasures, Sherrilyn continues to redefine the genre by bringing a fresh perspective only this imaginative writer can. Her rewards have been great, garnering her an almost cult-like following even before the books were published and her readership continues to grow at a phenomenal rate.

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.

Sherrilyn Kenyon has created an alternate world of the paranormal. For those readers who enjoy the vampire/action/love story, this series is quite refreshing. The author uses Greek Mythology to create the Dark Hunters a group of men and women who defend humanity from the things that go bump in the night. Dark Hunters surrender their souls to the Greek goddess Artemis when they die and in turn become immortal with all sorts of powers. Each book can be read on its own although there are recurring characters from previous books and broad hints about what is to come with others.
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.

All I can say is Oh dear LORD... Excellent, superb, amazing writing is here. Sherrilyn Kenyon is such an awesome writer, I can't get over it - and I'm DYING for the Zarrick tale to get out. This story was great, just absolutely phenomenal, as were the other books (I haunt the book stores, waiting for the next novel to come out, buying it the first day - I'm insane like that), and I'm ALWAYS left wanting more! I finish one of her books and then turn it over and begin again.
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.

I have waited impatiently for Talon's story and now that I had the opportunity to read this book, it has made my faith in Sherrylin's talent even stronger. Talon, first introduced in Night Pleasure (Kyrian's story) is enjoying his chicorry coffee and warm beignets at Cafe Du Monde, while taling to his best friend Wulf on the phone. He notices a group of Diamons waiting to make a meal out of any tourist. Regretting having to leave his warm cofee and beignets, he gets to meet a woman who turns his life upside down. Sunshine Runningwolf is a starving artist who has " the attention span of a sick flea." After their meeting, Talon can't keep Sunshine out of his head, while their enemy have their own plans to destroy them both. Cumulus, a Celtic God who hates Talon and has vowed to make him and his suffer, and Dyonisus, a Greek God wanting to gain his Godhood, join forces with Stynx. Stynx wants to keep Talon and Acheron occupied while he sets his plans to get vengaence.This book is fantastic from beginning to end, it grabs your attention completely and sets in motion a joyride that will keep you glued to your seat. "Night Embrace" has so many aspects that you will be dumstruck once you start reading.
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.
