Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks, but then she gets a lead on a story that could salvage her extinct career. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a hot news tip, which she gets in the form of a major police cover-up...for a ring of soul-sucking vampires out to take over Seattle. So much for saving her credibility. And if that isn't bad enough, she gets talked into adopting a cat and finds she's allergic to it. A cat that turns out to be a shapeshifter who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer on the prowl for the same corrupt cops.
Her first thought: Seek professional help. But as Susan's drawn into Ravyn's dark and dangerous world, she comes to realize that there's a lot more at stake than just her defunct career. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers; it's a matter of saving their very lives and souls.
Ravyn's life was shattered over 400 years ago, when he mistakenly trusted the wrong human with the truth of his existence. He lost his family, his honor, and his life. Now, in order to save the people of Seattle, he's forced to confront that nightmare all over again and to trust another woman with the secret that could destroy him. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, life is always dangerous. But never more so than now, when a very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is...will she?

Kiss of Night. This one deals with a lot of the deimon politics and underlying goings on.
I am usually a huge Holter Graham fan, and I am giving him the benifit of the doubt that simply no one bothered to give him a pronunciation guide on the names. There is a character named Cael, pronouced KALE, but he pronounces it Kyle. This wouldn't be nearly as annoying if there weren't another character actually named KYLE in the book. It gets really irritating when you can't tell who is being referenced. I waited 10 years for this audiobook and its a more than a little irritating when you are dealing with a mythos as complex and involved as the Dark Hunter world.
LOVE the Dark-Hunter series and all the characters. This one was a bit slow starting out, but eventually captured my attention. My biggest problem was that the narrator Graham pronounces the names differently than I would or that I'm used to hearing from Fred Berman which put a damper on things. Also, every male voice was the same. I expect that from McDuffy or whatever her name is, but you're a man, it should've been much easier to add more than just a low rasp to EVERY male voice... made it highly confusing overall to tell, at certain points, who was talking. But, alas, it was still a good book and he showed some emotion that was appropriate for the situations. I wish they would belt out though during anger parts, not keep it soft like we're in a library, I have headphones no one will get mad I promise haha.
Id rather be reading!!!! I love to read, If i could not clean my house ,work or take care of my husband and kids all I would do all day every day is read
Another great story. Nick made a bad choice but you never know what's going to happen next.
This is my favorite of all the books in the series. I've read the book several times so I know for a fact the writing is fantastic and the story is amazing.
BUT the narrator, in my opinion sounded like the godfather. I could actually see puffed out cheeks while he spoke!
Raven's voice, even when mad, shoud be soft sexy with a purr that could make shivers run up the readers back, settling in the mind with expectation..
I'm not saying Holter Graham isn't a good narrator, but should read books along the line of mafia and crime dramas. His voice isn't right for a paranormal romance
Not my favorite story of the Dark Hunter series but I did like to get to know more about the squires.
No. Not that he's a bad reader but his take on the story sounds like it should be a YA book and it's not. Hes not capable of doing the necessary accents and every man that speaks has the same raspy voice. Yuck! Fred Behrman is better for the series.
yes, if you're into the dark hunter series
While he's a little off with his characters, and the continuity of those characters, he was a familiar voice, and the unabridged version of this book was very welcome.
I hope you guys re do all the other horrible renditions of the series with Holter....Dream Warrior, Fantasy Lover, The first two or three dark hunter books, night embrace, night pleasures, etc.
Avid reader/listener of romance, action, thrillers, and spy novels.
Holter Graham finally narrated this one. Finally, finally finally. I am ruined for all time with any other narrators in this series. Can we get him to do all the other books that he didn't do?
This one definitely had a lot of Stryker in it, so One Silent Night, which is part of Stryker's story. Because he's one of the main bad guys (Ash's main BG), his story is never really over, but it's his tale about what happened to him and Zephyra and Medea. Politics and alliances suck, at times.
It's awesome, freaking awesome, to hear Holter again. I snatched this up the second it was available. They all need to be read by him, I don't care who read them before. Please, Audible, make this happen.
Cat Man in Seattle hates cat nip! LOL! Leo would be so proud.
Cael broke my heart, as did Nick, but there were times I wanted to slap him hard. Ravyn is awesome. Love him and Susan is just like me- sarcastic to the bitter end. Loved it!
