"In the realm of the Dark-Hunters, there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow: Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love. But every now and again, a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code.
"That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line, and it's my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling. Or so I thought, until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger - it's not just her name, it's how she lives her life. She doesn't trust me at all. And who could blame her? She alone knows that I'm here to be judge, jury, and most likely, executioner of her friends. Yet she is my key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die.
"Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead. But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I've ever loved?"
Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

"Kenyon is the reigning queen of the vampire novel." (Publishers Weekly)
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I love all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, this one is not my favorite, but it is good all the same. I have a harder time with woman as dark hunters, that is just my own hang up though. Fav's are Dance with the Devil and Devil may Cry.
This was a tepid story at best, but the thing I really like about it was you found out more about Acheron's back story and that is what I'm dying to find out about. It was a good listen, nothing wrong with it, but I never bought the chemistry and once again there was the miracle save at the end and THAT is getting old. So the back story and finding more out about the demons was definetly worth the listen.
Yes. Fred Berman is excellent narrator. The story is a great read as well; funny, sad, sexy - all at the same time.
I loved the way Alexion tried to figure out why humans do what they do. The ending was great too - but I won't give anything in the review.
I could listen to him daily speak in the voice he uses for Alexion. After I finished it the first time, I immediately listened to it again. I could not get enough of Alexion.
It is a must read - it also gives you some very detailed back ground about Acheron.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
While this isn't one of my favorites, you can't go wrong with any of Kenyon's books, and on audio they are even more sexy with the character's accents done with professional narration. *Important to read this series in order*
Was an okay story,couldn't tell if certain characters were demons or vampires.It was creative if not a bit confusing.The narrator did a good job being in sinc with the characters. overall,not really my thing in reading,a bit off the beaten path that we are use to,which is fine but still you really have to use your imagination to get through the story.
wow, again an amazing voice to listen to. the writer did a good job creating everything you need in a book. i hope Nick will return to his area soon so others will know he's okay in a way. i hope it works out for him.
The quips and whit of the demons
He does so well with Sherri's stories but Danger as a character was too much.. She sucks as a character so he had a rough batch to work with.
it made me bored and I struggled through it.
Sherrilyn Kenyon's books always have a special place in my heart. All her stories are needed to be read to complete and understand the links and events in her timeline but sometimes it's a struggle when you can't relate to the characters like I couldn't in this story. I'll stick with my physical copy for this book in the future. That way I can skip the nonsense droll parts I don't care for.
This was not my favorite dark hunter novel, there I said it. I did not feel attached or overly fond of the two main characters. This is going to sound so sexist, because it is, but I really have a hard time buying a lady dark hunter. Danger seems like a "nice girl" this makes it really hard to believe she is such a tough guy. Alexion seemed a little dull to me, I understand he has no human contact and limited social skills but he seems so drab. It's hard to believe he has played such an integral role in the dark hunter world without having heard about him before. I didn't think I even cared about how these characters ended up but during the final scenes I realized I cared more for these character than I had thought, this is a testament to Ms. Kenyon's skills, even when I don't want to I get wrapped up in her stories.
Furthermore beside Ash and Simi there are no familiar faces in this book, this irritates me because my favorite part of these books is hearing little tidbits about how life has progressed for other characters. That being said there are so very important developments in this installment of the series. My favorite character in this series is Simi who go her own plot twist in this one that I LOVED and hope to hear more about. Mr. Berman as always did an inspiring job voicing this story he continues to be a pleasure to listen to.
