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?"
Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

"In turns angst-filled and laugh-out-loud funny, her latest once again delivers a sensual, fast-paced read with a hero who is definitely worth the risk." (Booklist)
The main characters turmoil... you hurt for him and can't wait for the moment for him to give in and feel peace that he deserves...
The entire book was worthy of memory...
Fred is a great narrator ...he does Zarek very well...as always...
I love the story of the lost man...that needs to find that special one that can complete his life...so this story definitely fits ...
Absolutely a great read/listen. Loved the story line and the characters.
I liked his performance. If I have listened to Fred Berman, I don't recall.
I liked the intrigue and action. Couldn't stop listening.
Zarek, you just feel so sorry for him. From the very beginning, even when he is in his 'bad-ass' mode; you know that there is a very sad story behind his anger.
Can a Dark-Hunter truely be judged as innocent, or is it too late for Zarek.
As always, I love the interplay between Asheron and Artemis. Sometimes, I don't know which to feel sorry for.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This story happens to be my favorite out of the whole series. I have read all of them and Zarek connects with me more than any other. If you like romance, fantasy, and good vs. evil this is a must listen to series.
I am an avid fan of audible. I have over 150 titles in my library. Kersey Cole is one of my favs
The audible was awesome. The accents helped the charaterization.
The judge. She mended a broken heart but looking beyond a gruff exterior. Ash was great as usual.
The experiences of the cast out main character was sorrowful.
From the very beginning this book was so emotionally raw and moving. My heart broke over and over again for Zarek. Yet there were parts when laughter brought tears to my eyes :) Sundown is my new favorite Dark Hunter!
The Narrator's voice is very relaxing; I listen to the book to fall asleep to at night.
I loved this audiobook! The characters were rich and complex, the narration was fantastic. I even started it over the minute I was done. A good read for those who like the hot-sexy fantasy genre.
This was the first of this series that I have listened to. I love the Dresden series (even Ghost Story) and am generally a fan of Vampire/Fantasy books and movies. This was disappointing. I liked the reader. Great voice. But unless you are a fan of the bodice ripper genre I would not recommend this book. Not much action and alot of repetitive sex scenes filled with gratuitous superlatives.
