Dark-Hunter Wulf is an ancient Viking warrior with a useful but extremely aggravating power - amnesia. No one who meets him in person can remember him five minutes later. It makes it easy to have one-night stands, but hard to have a meaningful relationship, and without true love he can never regain his soul.

Sherrilyn Kenyon was originally one of the attending authors of RARE19 in London and so I bought half a dozen of the paperbacks in her Dark Hunters series. Unfortunately, due to some terrible things happening in her private life, Sherrilyn had to cancel her visit.
However I’m enjoying this series too much to stop reading them! I hope to meet her one day, should she every come to another signing event in England.
I decided last year that mini reviews were the way forward for me. Therefore I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs).
So on with my mini review…
So, what did I think about Kiss of the Night?
An Emotional Paranormal Romance Adventure That Ticked All My Boxes!
I’m really enjoying this series! I love Ms Kenyon’s writing style; the prose she uses, the pace of her plots, the twists & turns and how she concludes the romantic aspects of her tales while still leaving some tantalising threads that tempt you into buying the next book.
When reading paranormal romance, I need my main female character to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and have plenty of gumption; Cassandra was a great example of this. She was an amazingly tenacious woman with a beautiful heart, loyal and had a great sense of humour. We briefly meet the Viking warrior Wulf, in one of the previous books and I liked him then. He’s a dark and deadly warrior but his loyalty and humanity ensured that he became the perfect partner for Cassandra.
Kiss of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon is an exciting, but emotional read that brought me to tears on more than one occasion. Expect to feel sorrow, fear, indignation, apprehension, joy and passion when reading this story!
Due to the explicit sexual content and graphic violence, I’d recommend this book to adults who are OK with that. Adults who enjoy romance stories about the complexities of relationships, trust, loyalty and betrayal. And those who crave adventure around insurmountable odds and soul saving love.
I’ve already got the next two books in this amazing series. I can’t wait to see where Ms Kenyon takes us next!
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini review.
Have you read Kiss of the Night? If not, I hope I’ve sparked your interest and that you add it to your every growing TBR piles. Or any of the Dark Hunter books! 😉
Bye for now,
