For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
Ash's and Nick's conversation. I dont want to give anything way since this is a new book but its a powerful convo that you don't want to miss.
That voice of his, Love that man's voice. He lets me be able to consentrate and visualize what he is saying. Normally I have nothing bad to say about him but what did he do to Talon's accent?.....He sounded as if he was from Austrila in this one.
I had some WOW I cant believe moments and alot laughs threw out this book and some that almost made me cry. I cant wait for the next in the series. If your a fan of SK you wont be disapointed, you get to catch up with Ash, Nick ( and lets you finally see his evil powers), Sundown. You find more out about Jared. I also think Sk had finally found a way to let Ash's mom out in coming books......this is about to get really good! I have high hopes for future books.
First let me say I love the Dark Hunter series and the writing of Sherrilyn. But for me this book is a mis-mash. The romantic connection between Kat and Ren is rushed. And for once there is an over abundance of sarcasm. Even bringing in Ash and Sundown doesn't beef up this story. Introducing the Mayen gods just seems to complicate the story lines. Hot and steamy romance this is not. The story was boring for me and I found it difficult to finish. There was nothing particular interesting about the characters that made me care what happened to them. I found the story lacking. But if you love Holter Graham's voice it may get you through the story.
Yeah, the story. I end up listening to the first 5 chapter 3 times before continuing I kept getting lost and thought I wasn't paying attention but in truth it was all over the place. Even so some names and characters were familiar with the Dark Hunter series it was missing a clear story line. In some parts too much inner rambling, life lectures, too much jumping between their present and their past, etc.
Waiting for Rapture J.R. Ward.
Love Holter Graham, he is one of my favorite narrators. He does a wonderfull job giving life to the words.
Please no, leave this story line behind...I'm actually looking forward to the next book Stixx.
I was relistening to some of the earlier Dark Hunters books and this one doesn't seem part of the series. Don't get me wrong I love the series but I notice that the last 2 books were moving away from "vintage Dark Hunter"(don't know how else to explain it). It's not what I have come to expect from the Dark Hunter seires. Not one of my favorites...but not ready to call it quit on the series, still have hope it will get back on track with the next book
The story seemed written by a poor SK impersonator. Too generic, not enough depth to the main characters, action was bouncy, even the steam was lukewarm.
Oh well, even Kenyon deserves a break once in a while. Fingers crossed for the next one.
I am NOT giving up on the series which has been nothing short of spectacular.
The Narrator....Graham does such a great job.
The story had it all, action, romance, & whit...loved it.
The pain in the main characters voice...breaks your heart to hear it.
Yes...unfortunately life got in the way but I still managed to finish it faster than any of my other audio books.
If you like J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, and Kerrelynn Sparks then this is a series for you.

First Thought when Finished: I swear there has been a resurgence in the newest Dark Hunter books that I am totally on-board with!
Story Thoughts: History, Science, Hot Man, Smart Woman, Explosive Action, and HUMOR = Total Win! Seriously, I enjoyed this story so darn much from beginning to end. I like when a character has to overcome their beliefs to get to the truth. Also, usually not a fan of epilogues with huge time jumps but in this case it really, really worked :)
Character Thoughts: Oh how I loved Kateri and Ren! First, their names are just so freaking cool. Second, their back stories are made of amazing. I really am falling in love with the world again and that always happens through the characters. I know that there are people mentioned in this story that I hope we get to see a lot of in the future!
Narrated By Holter Graham / Length: 10 hrs and 20 mins
Holter knocked it out of the park again! I am just a fan of his narration of stories and he has a particular knack for action. He keeps you on the edge of your seat by pacing the authors work excellently. Highly recommend his narration when you come across it!
Final Thoughts: STYX! What I can’t wait!
I could praise Kenyon's writing for years. I have followed the Dark Hunter series for well over a decade. She never disappoints. I love Jess and it was great he showed up again. Its all about connections, history, love, identity and redemption.The sex is good too.
Any of the books in the Dark Hunter series. Yet each is uniquely different.
I have some vision issues and I enjoy listening to a good reader.The characters are more alive when someone else reads..
Yes and no. I like to savor Kenyon's characters and how they interact with ASH.
GREAT JOB KENYON YOU SCORED AGAIN
Retribution. This book is the greatest for carrying on where Asheron and Retribution left off!
The Last Chapter
I hope all of her books will eventually tell everyone's story. I have read all this series so far and I hope that she continues with it. She is one of my favorite authors and I like all her other series, but the Dark Hunters and the Dream Hunters will always have a place in my heart.
Anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon is NEVER a waste of time!
All of her stories are different enought that you get succered in and see how different characters play into each others lives!
I absolutely LOVE Nick Gautier in this book and can NEVER have enought of him in any of Kenyons stories!!!
If you love Kenyon's stuff this story is different enough to be "fresh" material but with some of our favorite past characters!
I loved the way Ren's back story was reveiled. I thought it really fit with the play on time.
Of course, I always love to see Acheron, but I was happy also to see some other characters I have enjoyed in the past like Nick (who showed more of his old self than he has in a while) and Sundown (whose own book had been a disappointment given how much I like his character). I really liked both the hero and heroine in this book.
Choo is probably my favorite voice of his. However, I'm not fond of all his voices, and it grates on my nerves the way he pronounces Simi (not at all the way I've heard the author or anyone connected with her pronounce it).
There's always a few scenes in her books that make me laugh. It's one of the things I love about her books. I did shed a few tears, which was odd since I didn't even cry at Acheron's book.
Yes, the last book intruduced a new Pantheon, and it continues in this book. Some people have found that confusing, but to me it makes sense. In the DH world, pretty much all the major religions (current and past) have some basis in that world's reality. Without spoiling the back story, I will say that I found this book highlighted some connections between this Pantheon and the previous ones she's introduced rather well, also tying it with Acheron's history.
