Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With its frenetic, Matrix-style fight scenes and feral, leather-clad heroes, this book makes it easy to see why Kenyon's fantasy world has caught on so quickly and even inspired some readers to role-play on her Web site. Like the vampire-battling immortals of Kenyon's previous Dark-Hunter tales (Dance with the Devil, etc.), Wulf Tryggvason is sexy, dangerous and well over six feet tall. He also has a chip on his shoulder because no one, except his blood relatives and fellow Dark-Hunters, can remember him after he leaves a room due to an ancient curse. Then he meets 26-year-old Cassandra Peters, the one woman who can remember him. Unfortunately, she comes with a "short expiration date." Not only is she destined to die on her 27th birthday, but she holds the fate of the world in her hands. The last of her bloodline, Cassandra must have a child before her birthday or the world will descend into darkness. Even those who buy into this premise will find the tidy denouement hard to swallow, but Kenyon is a master at creating spunky characterizations and cinematic action scenes spiced with wry humor. Though she has a tendency to overwrite, especially when it comes to loves scenes ("She moaned at the rich sensation of having all of his lush power lying over her"), this book is an entertaining thrill ride.

From Booklist

The only thing that can free a Dark-Hunter is the love of a woman. Hard to find if you're the only Hunter cursed to be forgotten within five minutes by whatever human meets you. Wulf suffers this fate, finding true companionship only with those who are exempt: his fellow Hunters and his lone surviving descendant. As for love, that's a lost cause, and meeting Cassandra makes the yearning harder to bear. He can have her only in erotic dreams, except that it turns out that those aren't just dreams, and Cassandra is no mere human. Showcasing Kenyon's knack for resuscitating oft-used plot twists with refreshingly different perspectives, the latest installment in the Dark-Hunter series, which includes Night Embrace (2003) and Dance with the Devil [BKL D 1 03], serves up more of what Kenyon fans have come to expect from her paranormal romances: intensely passionate love, laugh-out-loud humor, and drop-undead gorgeous men.

Well, you ever notice how you watch Dracula and Return of Dracula, and it's the same? Then you rent Son of Dracula and it's a little different, then you get Dracula 1975 and you can't understand how it fits the series?
Welcom to the equivalent. The first two Dark Hunter novels were very identical but good. The third was wildly different and imaginative.
The fourth is a mess.
Sure, we have yummy Wulf who no one can remember but his only living much beleagured kinsman/squire. But who's his heroine? She's an Appollite Princess hunted by Spathi warriors to bring about... well that Ms. Kenyon never quite makes clear.
Cassandra makes you want to weep for the Appollites. She's almost to her dying day and she screams in her mind how she wants to live. Your heart aches for her.
The feelings between Cass and Wulf are nonexistent. They have hot, hot HOT sex in their mutual dreams, but in person the sexual chemistry is so that you half expect him to adopt her.
They must run from the most fearsome Spathi warrior and his son and so they escape to an Appollite town underground. Here's where it gets bizarre. Cass's sister is alive and a Daimon. And the big bad Spathi's son Urian is her Daimon lover.
Kenyon makes you really feel for the Appollities and the Daimons. So at the end you're wondering "how can I read more Dark Hunter novels now? I like the Appollites!"
Add to that an ending that makes you roll your eyes, and well, this seems like a half hearted effort. Ms. Kenyon could you PLEASE stop giving us Dark Hunter's who A: actually have a soul and are too dumb to walk out in the sunlight to test it (like Zarek) and B: get a chance to take revenge on the people who wronged them, and yet the forgo it(Like, well, all of the nancy boys)? Talk about wimps!
I'll definitely be reading her were-hunter story but when the next DH novel comes out with Valerius, I will be very wary, you should be too.

I just love the DH series; I have read all of the novels (in order) and will buy the next one. This book was not, did not, and does not fit the bill. I felt that this book should be just a story that was presented on the DH website. Did we really need to put this one on the shelf for people to buy? NO. This was just one quickie we did not need. The true fans are in this for the long hall, and this was not satisfying at all.

This was my first Dark Hunter novel so I was completely unfamiliar with the mythos going in. The author did a good job of giving enough explanation for me to understand the dynamic between Apollite, Daimon, Spathi, and Dark Hunter without seeming to cram it down my throat. She placed it as part of the developing back story which was fine with me. I also enjoyed the way she brought the old gods out to play. I thought Kat was Artemis in disguise at one point and I am wondering what Acheron is up to. I ran out and bought three other Dark Hunter novels this weekend. So, I guess you could say Sherrilyn has a new fan. I'm looking forward to Night Play.
The only thing that broke my concentration while reading this was that the author interrupts three separate sex scenes with the hero becoming contemplative. I know there are points in a story where you need exposition but there has to be somewhere else to do that than in the middle of a sex romp. It was not a smooth transition at all either from sex to contemplation or from contemplation back to sex. I noticed it every time and grumbled to myself. But besides that nit, the story kept my attention and was definitely worth my precious reading time.

Kiss of the Night, the latest installment in the Dark Hunter Series, delivers what loyal readers have come to expect. She spun a mythological world that grows increasingly complex with each book. This world, filled with vampires, were-animals, and lots of immortal gods, is a fresh and fascinating setting for a romance novel. Unfortunately, while the background story gets more and more imaginative, the love stories remain bogged down in repetition.
It seems that the time pressures placed on Ms. Kenyon have forced her to be lax on editing. The vocabulary used is limited and repetitive. The heroine smells like roses and powder. (A point that is reiterated throughout the novel, without cease.) The unhappy and feral Alpha male hero is indistinguishable from her other unhappy and feral Alpha male heroes. Kenyon's heroines also seem to be cut from the same cloth.
If you have enjoyed Kenyon's other novels, Kiss of the Night fits right in. While the series storyline is developing through more complicated mythology and backstory, the love stories seem unfortunately similar. If, however, you were hoping for a departure from the Kenyon formula...you won't find it here.

To agree with someone's review earlier, out of all of the Dark-Hunter books, this was my least favourite. It was because of the hero and heroine not for the plot or events which would have been AMAZING had Wulf or Cassandra appealed to me at all. Yes, Cassandra can kick-arse physically but these days seeing as so many TV or book heroines are described as arse-kicking, it didn't really impress me or give an added depth to her just because she had this one skill. Her personality also was irritating and boringly repetitive, showing none of the sass and surprises and hidden conflicts that Sherri every other time has mastered in her heroines. Wulf was slightly better and his resentment of his father was simple, clear and concise, yet still needling the heart. The frustration and hurt of no-one ever remembering him was good too. My problem with him was not too big, just that he didn't jump off the page as much as the other Dark-Hunters, but to be fair, that's more a matter of comparison and maybe expecting too much than just reviewing him on his own.
Now to the good parts! As always, the supporting characters are PHENOMENAL and more often than not more intriguing than the mains! Chris as the prickly but shy over-protected nephew is truly a welcome relief, and evasive as Kat is and as huge as all the questions are that she poses, makes her way more deserving to be the heroine. Urian and Phoebe are a much more compelling couple due to his status and what they are, and it's like an old friend has returned when previous Dark-Hunter heroes join the fray, even for a few pages. For all those who worry, Simi's not even annoying in this one! Ash returns of course, and again leaves us ripping out our hair with the questions he doesn't answer, but hey, what else have we come to expect?!
