Filled with sexy humor, sparkling with imagination, Devil May Cry is the next great thrill ride of the year.
Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

"Sin, a Sumerian fertility god turned Vegas casino owner, and Kat, the zealous servant of bossy Greek goddess Artemis, knock boots and kick butt in Kenyon's juicy...paranormal love-fest." (Publishers Weekly)
This was my first Sherrilyn Kenyon novel. I loved the story and Holter Graham is one of the best narrators out there! It's a shame the entire series is not available. Previous narrators have been so SOOOOO awful they literally drive the listener to distraction. With any luck, Harper Collins will record the missing novels from the Dark Hunter series. If so, I REALLY hope they use Holter Graham or Fred Berman as narrators. They're fantastic!
Just did my 2nd and a half listen. Love Holter Graham's voice. Love the insouciance with which he interprets Kenyon's dialogue. I also love Kenyon's way with a metaphor. And once again let me say that Graham's voice as Sin is "dead sexy, baby!" I listen to him just to help me go to sleep then get caught up. Come on! If you like paranormal romance audiobooks, you'll like this book.
good story line.
wish they could keep the same reader. holter graham doesn't do simi justice.
Holter Graham is the BEST narrator I've ever listened to. It is amazing how he can create a different sexy voice for every character in Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. This story was great too. Holter, please please please narrate more of her books!
The book is a typical Dark-Hunter, so while it's not high literature, its entertaining and fulfils everything you'd expect from the author. You also find out more background info about the enigmatic Acheron, which was quite to my taste!
Where I seem to disagree with most other reviewers is in the narrator: This more or less ruined the audio book for me. With Kenyon's writing being rather blatant by itself, the exaggerating and over-emphasizing style of the narrator definitely crosses the line to the ridiculous. I found myself halfway between laughing and embarassment....
I find that a female narrator suits this type of book much better and rather liked the one doing "The Dark Side of the Moon".
An ex-god wants to kill a goddess but mistakes her daughter for her. In the process has to fight Demons who want to take over the world. If you are a Kenyon fan you have definitely read this book. Now, audio is so much funnier. My kids look at me funny because I will laugh out loud while listening to this book.
The book is excellent of course, and Holter Graham does a fantastic job as the reader. I hope he does her next book - I'm definitely feeling his voice!
Wonderful narration amplifies the witty dialogue between the characters. I hope this narrator will perform in more of her books. I had many chuckles. The placing of the ancient Gods and demons in contemporary setting created lots of opportunities for laughs. Highly entertaining.
Loved the story, hated the narration. Mr. Graham didn't pronounce names correctly, horrible accents - really too bad he didn't listen to any of the first few books so at least he could get the names correct. If this is your first in the series, you won't know the difference. If not, be prepared! I was so disappointed after reading the great reviews. He really ruined it for me.
I don't usually review books but I have to give Kenyon my 100% approval on Devil May Cry. She has written another book in her series that is different from the others and yet cares the theme of the story on. Sin is a wonderful hero that you at first are not sure you like and the fall in love with. The story answers some question about Ash that help you understand many of his decisions in previous books as well as his relationship with Artimes.
