In paranormal romance author Kenyon's debut hardcover (after Unleash the Night), her New Orleans–based Dark-Hunters have moved to Seattle, where they continue to battle Daimons who suck both blood and souls from humans. Love doesn't come easy for these tortured, hunky heroes, as shown by Ravyn Contis, a shape-shifting Dark-Hunter, who was betrayed by his first lifemate. Now his newest love interest, reporter Susan Michaels, is allergic to him—or, more specifically, to his cat form. She's also none too happy to find herself thrown into the midst of a war between Seattle's Dark-Hunters and a race of über-powerful Daimons. Tough, sarcastic Susan rises to the occasion and even possesses enough martial arts knowledge to hold her own in a face-off with Daimons. Some readers will question the convenient revelation of her battle skills as well as her bring-'em-on bravado, but most will take this in stride and enjoy the taut action and jaunty humor. Though the story unfolds predictably, it contains a delicious balance of suspense and sensuality and provides a tantalizing setup for the sequel.

With over six million copies of Kenyon's groundbreaking Dark Hunter series in print worldwide, her jump to hardcover was inevitable. From Night Pleasures (2002) to the seminal Seize the Night (2005), Kenyon, who also writes as Kinley MacGregor, has drawn on her doctorate in history and knowledge of the ancient Greeks to form the foundation of her mystical universe, which she infuses with her offbeat sense of humor--her hero is a were-leopard and her heroine is allergic to cats--and boundless imagination. As a result, she is one of the defining authors of the new wave of paranormal romance, in which the good guys wear black and the bad guys are often colored in shades of gray, a refreshing moral ambiguity that is highlighted in this book. Ravyn, haunted by the massacre of his clan, and Susan, a once renowned journalist now shackled with a ruined reputation, must join forces to uncover and stop a deadly alliance. Although Ravyn and Susan provide Kenyon's poignant yet action-driven romance, pivotal revelations about her recurring characters Stryker, Acheron, and Nick are the surefire hook for new and devoted readers.

Ms. Kenyon's latest installment in her Dark-Hunter series is not what loyal fans have come to expect when they open up one of her books. At the same time her creative ability is what has drawn us to her time and again and her creative drive has changed focus. There is a great deal more action involved with a little less detail to the romance between her main characters Ravyn and Susan. This story has no less than four additional storylines running at the same time and when combined with the extra characters introduced...might seem to be a bit overwhelming for the reader. Still, Ms.Read more ›
Ravyn Kontis is one of the shape-shifting immortals/guardians who are sworn to protect humankind. He is captured while in cat form by a minion of the Daimon King. Lucky for him, Susan "adopts" him while following her lead. Rave is thankful, but Susan knows too much. Now they are thrown together as partners. Things get even worse now because it becomes apparent that the Daimons have declared war on the Dark-Hunters and have some of the police department on their side. Susan and Ravyn find themselves on run for two murders that they did not commit. And all that is only the beginning of their first full day together!
***** Author Sherrilyn Kenyon has created an extremely realistic, but hidden, world that will grab its readers and hold onto them tighter than cement! You do not have to read the previous novels to understand everything going on. I am proof, since this is my first experience with the underground world. Once I began this story I could see why the author is so famous and has her own cult following. Outstanding! *****
