I’m loving the Dark Hunter books by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Dance with the Devil is an exciting read. I was gripped from cover to cover!
The Hunter Legends Series (previously named the Entire Dark Hunterverse) has several series that tie-in and overlap the whole series. Those are:
- Dark-Hunters series
- Dream-Hunters series
- Were-Hunters series
- Hellchasers series
- Lords of Avalon series
- Dragons Rising Trilogy series
This series encompasses the entire Hunter Series. For the correct reading order, please visit the author’s site.
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 this particular book blogger. 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…
Dance with the Devil (Hunter Legends #4) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Zarek’s Point of View:
Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.
Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don’t suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.
Trust: I can’t trust anyone…not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.
Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I’m tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.
Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?
Another Gripping Adult Paranormal Romance That Had Me Hooked!
I am 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 all the various 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; Astrid was a great example of this. She was an amazingly tenacious woman with beautiful soul, empathetic, loving and had a wonderful wit. I’d fallen in love with the anti-social Zarek after we met him in the last book. He’s damaged, dark and dangerous – yum, yum. However his well hidden humanity ensured that deserved the love and affection that grew in Astrid’s heart.
There are scenes of explicit sexual content and graphic violence in this book. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who aren’t offended by scenes of this sort.
I’d recommend Dance with the Devil to adults who enjoy romance stories about the complexities of relationships, about trust, loyalty and betrayal and of course, insurmountable odds and soul saving love.
Dance with the Devil is an exciting read. It brought out ALL my emotions: Sorrow, fear, indignation, apprehension, joy and passion! 😉 I was gripped from cover to cover! I have already bought three more paperbacks in this amazing series and can’t wait to get stuck in!
