I LOVE This Series, this is Zarek's Story and as sad as his life is, it was just that much fascinating he has never been shown kindness by anyone other than his half brother which always caused him to be whipped. So he doesn't what kindness because its known to cause him pain. He was unfairly accused of a crime he did not commit by a women who he tried to protect. Then he also finds out he once again is accused of a crime of he did not commit as a dark hunter and must find a way to prove his innocence. In this series where else can you find Weremen, yes I said Weremen because they are wolves that can transform into MEN!. and werebears, demons, vampires and Greek gods all in one series!! I love the fact no matter how much Zarek tries not to be drawn in by kindness he finally can not deny the woman who offers it so freely and without cause, she gives him the most precious gift of all herself because she is a virgin demi god and he is or was in his human life a slave.
First off, the narration of this book greatly improved my listening experience. All of the characters had a distinct voice and were easily distinguished from each other. My favorite character in this book was Simi, Berman did such a good job voicing this character it blew me away.
This book brought my interest back to this series. Although the books are very popular, I did not love the previous novels. In fact, I only purchased this story because it was on sale and am so glad I did. My interest in Dark Hunters has been renewed.
I really enjoyed this story. The hero is a flawed man who has lived through brutal experience and gross injustice after gross injustice. Very early in this book readers are able to discern the realZarek from the one perceived by the rest of the world. My one and only complaint is that by comparison the heroine is flat and not very well developed.
I also appreciated all of the secondary characters and look forward to hearing more about them in subsequent stories.
The understanding of a tortured soul by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
the transformation thru acceptance and caring
both. in addition to being a compassionate description of abuse, SK has a funny sense of humor that made me laugh out loud more than once
Yes the audio version lets you experience another dimension with the tallents of the narrator giving personality and unique accents to each character. I thoroughly enjoyed this dark hunter novel in audio format.
When the author let it be known that Zarek lived in that shack in Alaska all alone whittiling even the walls to stay sane. And then finding out he gave them away to his neighbors in the town unbenownst to any of them.
When he was allowed to finally get rid of his virginity.
It certainly did. I laughed out loud, and cried quietly, experienced anger, hope, hate. I experienced the whole gamut of emotions.
Fred Bermnan is the undisputed champion narrator of these novels. However Holter Graham is my second favorive reader of these novels, although his women portrayal is a bit whiney.
It is not one of her better writes, but I enjoyed it.
All of the interactions between the male lead and Sasha
Love his voice.
The dream sequence.
Not a memorable character, I already forgot his name...
Sherrilyn Kenyon is a great writer that keeps the story moving. It was well worth the read and I have been following the series and can't wait until the next book.
I read all the time, or nearly. I always have, I guess, since I was very young ... and now, getting older, more audio than any other medium.
This is a typical book by an author whose books all have essentially the same plot, with a couple of notable exceptions. It's not the kind of book you will remember very long after you read it, but it's enjoyable. It's sexy. It's pure fun. Don't over-think the story or the characters and you will have a fine time.
Don't expect great literature. This is a great beach read or time filler on a rainy day. Narration is good, and the story moves along at a nice pace. Definitely a "chick" book.
OK, I will admit that I am a fan of vampire stories and romances, even steamy romances, but this took steamy to a new level. Honestly, the graphic sex scenes would give this book a Hard R rating, or possibly an NC-17. While the story was fun, I felt that often the sex scenes would be used in place of truly forwarding the story. Still, I ordered a few more of the books in the series, so... Guess that is the best review of them all!
This is the first book i have ever read/listened to by this author. I have actually tried to listen to it a few times but couldn't get into it. I'm forcing myself to listen to it now since I did buy it. Its ok. The narrator could be better... or maybe it the accent he gives to Zarek(sp) makes him sound girly.
I don't know right now.
made the main character sound like a girl.
Has to be my favorite one I have read, Zarek has got to be my favorite character next to Nick in "The Chronicles of Nick" its like Zarek acts like the people in my family XD lol, strange or not but I think his awesome.
