It’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Life will continue to throw every bad thing it has at her, and she will continue to not put her head in an oven. But that’s okay. That which doesn’t kill her will just require a few hours of mental insanity. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running. But when her group accidentally releases something truly evil into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcement.
From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn’t quite right. And it’s not just because she can’t even begin to pronounce his last name: Maboddimun. Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his age.
Centuries ago, Cadegan sold his soul for vengeance against the sorceress who cursed him. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him. Something he can’t seem to fight and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him his soul. He knows he has to stay away from her, but the evil her friends unleashed is hellbent on consuming her soul. Something he cannot allow. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I felt like this book was the return to SK regular books. Sherrilyn Kenyon is the queen of tortured hero's and this book is no exception. Luckily it was one where the hero wasn't so tortured that it was too painful to listen to. I'm always a sucker for a sassy heroine and Jo was great. Of course it was practically love at first sight which is a little unbelievable, but the story of how they escaped together for their happily ever after was the true story. I had quite of few chuckles over the freaky Friday moments. I also loved the return of old characters from books past. I don't recommend reading this book or any in the series without reading them in order. Narrator rocks of course, gotta love Holter Graham.
A lot of the DH books can be stand alone books, yes it is good to have read ALL of them and you would enjoy them much more having read the previous one but not necessary, this one I don't think would be good as a stand alone. You have a HUGE cast of past and present DH with A LOT of their own back stories so it is good have know the history. That being said I loved this book, it has great twists and turns and opens up for a new war coming!!!
Redeemingly heartwrenching and beautiful
Acheron and Styxx have the same theme of powerful man with a mountain high struggle feeling unworthy of love. But finding it not only in a woman but in a community of people.
His voice is familiar and soothing. I especially love the consistency of the same voice throughout all the books.
I much prefer listening to this series than reading it. Holter Graham's voice and Kenyon's imagery go so well together that I find myself listening over and over. Not only to keep character back stories straight but to wrap the the comfort of the two (Graham and Kenyon) around me like a warm blanket.
Avid reader/listener of romance, action, thrillers, and spy novels.
It's in the top ten. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, even if they have similar features. There's a body switching scene that's hilarious and every couple should have to go through. Illarion is my new favorite dragon.
How tender and sweet Cade is regardless of how lonely he is. The poetry he speaks is so pretty, I always stopped and gasped at his Aphrodite reference.
Everything. The accents were great and he sounded just like he did before his surgery. It's great to hear him again.
I'm not that creative so I'll let other people do that.
I was excited for this book because of the accents and Holter didn't disappoint. I love the Scottish accent, even if I have to listen to it over and over. There's something magical and sexy about it that not many readers get right.
I was happy to see Styxx bonding with Cade about how crappy their brothers could be. It's great to see Styxx again and actually see him happy after the last book and wrapping up that mess. But, it's these people's lives. It'll never be wrapped up until they're dead. I don't want to that happen ever.
Well, since I have to know how the whole thing ends, and hope I live that long, yes, I'm a sucker...
Write something new for a change, or just tie up all the loose ends and end the series. Surely she's made enough money by now...The last how many books are the same old same old....same sad story, same phrases, over, and over, and over, and over....I can't believe it takes her a whole year just to insert different characters into the same tired storyline.
I love Holter, truly, but really? He's been doing these characters so long, I can't understand why he's not consistent with them.... Styxx sounded like a combination of Fury (the wolf) and Nick during Sam's book. Talon had a couple different accents in a single conversation, which was different, though slightly better than the horrible one he used in time Untime. And where did Bethany's egyptian accent go? Sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking, the women all pretty much sounded alike. Jaden, Kassar, were just awful, Thorn's accent changed a few times throughout the book as well. Ash was almost OK.... He did get Simi right, thank goodness...
Yes, find a new series to listen to
I felt like this book was really short and somewhat sloppy. As I said before the storyline is just tired. The characters didn't even know each other five minutes before the raunchy sex started. The series used to have a direction, now it seems to be going all over the place, bringing in new pantheons with the same parallel plot line, and it also seems in this book, like she's trying to tie in with one of her other series, which if I'm not mistaken is based on King Arthur's myths, just as this series is (was) based on Greek myths. It's just all too much and doesn't make a lot of sense anymore to keep dragging it out year after year with almost no new info in each book. The little snippets of info at the very end were confusing, and I'm still trying to piece that all together. Please let's go back and find out about Savitar, Jaden, Jared....stop going off on wild tangents with people who have nothing to do with the Dark Hunters.... This was definitely NOT a Dark Hunter novel.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
This is probably my least favorite of all SK's novels. I started this book looking for the pulse pounding heart stopping action that I have come to expect and this book just did not deliver. The sarcasm was not in this book like previous books.
We do get some insight into Thorn and Jaden. We get to see some old fav's like Ash, Simi, Styxx, Kat, and Fang. There is a cliff hanger about Sav that make you think hum......
Things I did not like about the book was the instat love expecially since Joe just got divorced. I did not feel the love connection, it kept feeling like she pitted him and he loved her because she was there. The multiply names for characters, made me confused for awhile. The new people I have never heard of from the LOA series.
I will reread this just because I know I did not catch it all the first time for all the confusion between the characters names and the new people. I am looking forward to the next book! I was happy to see Holter back as the narrator. The brogue speak was hard to understand for me as well. I think that is my issue with my hearing rather than the narrator though.
Ms Kenyon has developed a deep pension for tortured underdogs. Though wrongly accused, used deeply abused, the main character rise above and becomes a hero in the eyes on the one who loves him. May we all be so lucky.
loved all the twists and turns in this book. I might have been left with more questions than answers, but also left craving the next installment. Kenyon is one of my favorite authors and has yet to disappoint.
