I have read and listened to all of the books in this series, but this one stands out as my absolute favorite. The story was woven so beautifully, with many cameos of my favorite characters. However, I was completely drawn into the story thru the lives of the two main characters. The combination of tragedy, danger, action, history, friendship, loyalty, betrayal, kindness, love, romance, and redemption (
tempered with only a few brief sexual interludes) kept me completely addicted and left me with a desire to be a better person - to be more like Ren.
I had to listen to this book more than once. I love how fables and bits of history are included in the stories
The history of the myan culture

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.
The return of characters such as Ash of course, Talon & Sunshine, Sasha, Zarek, and Nick.
Ash and Nick's conversation, and the general progression of that story.
annoying girl voices
The main story is not as interesting as most SK novels, unless it was just the fact that this was my first SK audio book. I never got to the point of enjoying the narrator even after the 10 hours of listening to him. The female voices were the worst and I do think this took away from the story (a lot). Talon sounded exactly like the gecko on the geico commercials... so wrong!!! All the other DH sounded ok especially Ren (thankfully) and Nick, Ash was mediocre but that is understandable since no one could ever sound like he would. Having read all the DH series, I am a bit disappointed in this book. Most likely because I have been a bit disappointed in the whole new native american offshoot to the stories, I just can't get into them as much as the greek/atlantis or lycanthrope story lines.
Yet another great story from Sherrilyn Kenyon. It is always hard to wait for the next but she never disappoints. Holter Graham provides the right voice(s) for this book.
dueling between. Future n past. Love n hate which one of all is more exited than the other one.this book has everything
Acheron.Both characters had suffer in the. Past n still find good things in humanity
The performance in difference characters that tied the stories all together.
I laugh cry and felt all kind of emotions from 1 minute to the other. I felt like riding a roller coaster.
This is a book for readers who like powerful emotions .not for readers who read to go to sleep.
