PRAISE FOR SHERRILYN KENYON

"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 Inside Flap

Amanda came awake to an awful throbbing in her head. She felt terrible.
What had hap-
She tensed as she remembered the unseen man.
His words.
Terrified, she pushed herself up, and quickly learned she was on a cold concrete floor, in a very small, dust covered room...
And handcuffed to an unknown blond man.
A scream wedged itself in her throat, but she held it back.
Amanda took in her surroundings. There was no furniture or anything else. The only light came from a small bulb in the center of the ceiling.
Okay, so she wasn’t in immediate danger.
Still far from comforted, she looked at the body beside her. He lay with his back to her, and he was either dead or unconscious.
Hesitantly, she reached out and placed her hand against his tawny neck to check his pulse. A strong, heavy heartbeat thumped against her fingertips. Relieved he was alive, she tried to shake him.
He moaned low in his throat, then slowly blinked his eyes open.
With a curse, he grabbed her by the shoulders.
Before she could move, he rolled over with her, pinning her against the floor beneath his body as he held her wrists above her head.
Those dark, captivating eyes searched hers suspiciously.
Every inch of him was pressed intimately against her and she became instantly aware of the fact that his arms weren’t the only part of his body that was rock hard and solid.
His hips rested dead center between her legs while his hard, taut stomach leaned against her in a way that brought a flush to her cheeks. Made her feel hot and tingly. Breathless.

Have to have pointy Teeth & Leather? Well Kenyon's books are for you!! Her Dark Hunter Characters are Lovable & Unique..Unlike Many of the other "vampire" themed Novels I've read which seem to have the "Same" character, but with a different Name, background and Girlfriend....LOL!
Kenyon has a knack for mixing the Modern with the past w/ a Somewhat Spunky & Punky Twist!!
In this Book, our Yummy Dark Hunter find's himself Handcuffed to a Woman who Tries to Deny the reality of Who & What she is. Her family consists of Witches & Vampire Hunters :) Who could have guessed this of a Straight laced Amanda Devereaux. Again, Sherri greats us with a mix of Laughs & Steamy Love scenes.
If you Love guys in Leather...You gotta read her books :)

Kyrian of Thrace traded his soul two thousand years ago and has been a Dark Hunter since, an immortal who rids this world of the dangers of the vampire like Daimons who feed on the soul of humans. One day in New Orleans he wakes up to find himself handcuffed to Amanda Deveraux, an accountant who leads a normal boring life and likes it that way. They have been captured by Desiderius, a powerful Daimon who can only be killed by a Dark Hunter with a soul. The only problem is no Dark Hunter has a soul. A dark hunter has to win back his soul. Kyrian and Amanda managed to escape and they must hunt down Desiderius before they become the ones who are hunted down.
Kyrian of Thrace was gorgeous (as with all of Ms Kenyon's heros) and you can just imagine all those rippling muscles, 6 pack abs jumping off the page. Amanda was a tough heroine and stuck by her man even though she wasn't sure there was any future for them together. The sex scenes are hot. Your fingers will get burnt turning the pages. I also like the introduction of other Dark Hunters such as Acheron and Talon (who is featured in the following book Night Embrace). Ms Kenyon's writing is full of humour and modern slang which adds a certain pizzazz to the book which is unique. A thoroughly good read and I can't wait to read the following books.

By A Customer on March 12 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had a great time with this book, not only with the story itself, a tragicomic/supernatural romance, but with the out-of-the-ordinary sarcastic repartee between Kyrian and Amanda, the protagonists. I have been really bored with the overblown, heavy tragedy and with the perky, yet goody-two-shoes heroines in a lot of romances lately (e.g., Amanda Quick, Christina Dodd), so this book was completely refreshing. Kyrian is hot and mysterious, Amanda is a funny and tough-nerved foil, and the secondaries, some introduced in "Fantasy Lover" (a prequel to the Dark-Hunter series) help the story along and also function as setups for main characters in later books in the series. This story also provides a gread roadmap to the world of the Dark-Hunters, so I recommend reading this before jumping into the rest of the series. One of the reviews below complained about this book being "completely predictable," but really, aren't all romances? :-) The story and dialog are fresh, the characters are sympathetic, and Ms. Kenyon's supernatural world effortlessly snags you and drags you in. I couldn't put it down!

This book is both funny and touching. Kyrian, if a little too perfect physically, is both tortured and very likable. Certainly all his co-workers like him. He is torn between protecting both himself and Amanda and his overwhelming attraction to her. Kenyon writes truly tortured heroes. Amanda tries so hard not to be like her wacky family, and then she finds herself handcuffed to a vampire--worse, she falls in love with him. Her unlimited accaptance of him is the key to both their relationship and the evil they face. Still, Kenyon's female leads are less well-developed than the males.
I happened upon "Dance with the Devil" first, so I had a major learning curve getting into Keyon's Dark-Hunter world. This book, at the beginning of the series, is much clearer about creatures who inhabit this imaginative world. I was quite impressed with Kenyon's ability to take Greek myths and morph them into this paranormal world.
My complaints are a heavy preponderence of gratuitous sex scenes; only a few truly further the relationship. More damning is that the sex overshadows the love rather than verifying it. We know the love is there, but it is rarely shown in any fashion other than sex. The relationship could have been richer. Finally, except for being told briefly about the rest of her family, we're never given clues to Amanda's supernatural powers until Kyrian says she has them. Then, at the crucial moment, they suddenly appear.
It's a good if imperfect read. Kenyon is not Teresa Medeiros, but she's interesting enough and her Dark-Hunter world is a fascinating creation.

I am impressed beyond words. This book was amazing with a capital 'A'. Ms. Kenyon(also known as Kinley MacGregor) takes vampire lore to a whole other level!
A unique twist on Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Slayer Legend and Charmed's Hollway three witch sisters legend, Kenyon tackles vampires that come in various different breeds. Some worse than others and a "slayer" of sorts created by ancient gods to destroy them called Dark-Hunters. These Dark-Hunters also suffer the same disadvantages as vampires and posess no soul, but they are good at heart and are made when they are served a severe injustice and their soul cries out so loudly that the Greek god Artemis hears and grants them a chance at vengeance if they turn their soul over to her and join her army of "Slayers', or Dark-Hunters in this case.
Blessed, or cursed if you will with the same disadvantages and same advantages, each Dark-Hunter must keep humans safe from the Daemons that run through the night stealing souls from the humanrace.
Action-packed and full of funny quips and twists, this is one of the best books I've ever read. Hard to put down, its sure to make you chuckle in parts when we meet the heroine of the story Amanda and her wacky family of witches, vampire-hunters, voo-doo priestess's, and the like. Amanda herself just wants a "normal" life with nothing paranormal. Even if it means marrying a very boring and very unattractive man who works with numbers as she does, she just can't handle anymore "weirdness" than she already has to handle from her family.
