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.

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.
