Hello Avid Readers,
Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?
So with that in mind, today, I want to share my thoughts about…
I picked up this book because the author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, will be attending RARE19 in London next month.
Night Pleasures (Dark Hunter #2) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
The Dark-Hunters are ancient warriors who have sworn to protect mankind and the fate of the world is in their hands. . .
He is solitude. He is darkness. He is the ruler of the night. Yet Kyrian of Thrace has just woken up handcuffed to his worst nightmare: An accountant. Worse, she’s being hunted by one of the most lethal vampires out there. And if Amanda Devereaux goes down, then he does too. But it’s not just their lives that are hanging in the balance. Kyrian and Amanda are all that stands between humanity and oblivion.
Let’s hope they win.
An Adult Paranormal Romance That Had Me Gripped!
I am really kicking myself now; why haven’t I ever read this series before?! I love Ms Kenyon’s writing style; the prose she uses, the pace of her plots, the twists & turns and how she concludes all the various aspects of her tales while still leaving some tantalising threads that lure you to keep reading.
When reading paranormal romance, I need my main female character to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and have plenty of gumption; Amanda certainly had all of these traits and more. She was a beautiful soul, empathetic, loving and had a wonderful wit. Kyrian was a male that ticked all my boxes too; he was damaged, loyal to a fault, had depth and deserved the love that Amanda had for him.
Due to the explicit sexual content and graphic violence, I would recommend this book to adults who are not offended by scenes of this nature who enjoy romance stories about the complexities of relationships, about trust, loyalty and betrayal and of course, insurmountable odds and soul saving love.
I have already bought two more paperbacks in this series and can’t wait to read them.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini review. I hope I’ve sparked your interest in this book and added to your every growing TBR pile. 😉
Bye for now,
