Wulf is an ancient Viking warrior with a useful but extremely aggravating power-amnesia. No one who meets him in person can remember him five minutes later. It makes it easy to have one-night stands, but hard to have a meaningful relationship, and without true love he can never regain his soul. When he finally meets Cassandra, the one woman who can remember him, she turns out to be the princess of the cursed race he's sworn to hunt - and is forbidden to him. The two of them must face ancient curses, prophecies, and the direct meddling of the Greek gods to find true happiness at last.
Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

"[T]he latest installment in the Dark-Hunter series...serves up more of what Kenyon fans have come to expect from her paranormal romances: intensely passionate love, laugh-out-loud humor, and drop-undead gorgeous men." (Booklist)
This story doubles back on the timeline and even recalls word for word the phone call between Wolf and Talon while he debated whether to finish off his coffee or the prey hhe is supposed to be hunting--Fabbio alert! It continues past the news of Zarek's fate and then carries us forward to give Wolf's story the proper finish.
The story puts a few head-twists on how we view Damons and gives us our first non-human female love interest--an Apollite. We also get a hysterically funny view of Wolf's interactions with his nephew/Squire that make it worth the listen for those moments alone.
As usual, there is a tremendous amount of humor that often makes me laugh out loud as well as poignancy that brings tears to the eyes. We also get a satisfying reunion of Julian, Kirian, and Talon for a romping good fight plus more enigmatic Ash and his studly super powers.
I can hardly wait to get back to New Orleans for the next story and the tears and laughter I know it will produce.
Too many books, so little time. 5 stars=Great, 4 stars=Good, 3 stars=Okay, 2 stars= Sucked, 1 star=Awful.
Another great one, but in my opinion there are not any bad ones when it comes to the dark hunter series, only some better than others. I thought it was hot how they had dreams about one another.
Sherrilyn Kenyon was one of the first paranormal romance authors that I read. I love the stories and the whole Atlantis pantheon thing. Ms. Kenyon has a great imagination, and though this was not my favorite Dark-Hunter book, I always enjoy the boys.The stories are very entertaining and, in my opinion, MUST be read in order to get and understand the inside jokes, and to get the flow of the story as a whole.I am happy to see the series is finally making it to Audible (in order), and I hope all 21 Dark-Hunter (5 of which are in anthologies) and 4 Dream-Hunter books make it on Audible!!
I loved listening to this audio. It was better than reading the book. I loved Fred Berman he did an excellent job with the characters voices. I can't wait for Vane's book and please use either Fred Berman or Holter Gram as the narrator.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Book is full of sex as usual, but it was funny, I can't say why but you will understand. My main concern is Acheron and in this book you get to know more about his powers and what he can do. damn can't wait to read the book which will be about him.
In this book there is a small twist, its not like the previous books, so you will like it.
Like to read, learn... be nice to people. Might sound boring to most. Sounds good to me.
Solid series addition
The fact that no one could remember Wulf
I really like his style. He is my favorite voice talent in the entire series.
What would you do to live one more day, or save the life of someone you love? This story addresses the atrocity of Apollo's curse and those who are directly or indirectly afflicted by it. Again, I laughed, I cried and when the story ended, I bought the next one. One of my favorite stories. Not the voice of Wulf I heard in my head when I read the book, but the narrator does a good job.
I loved the characters in this book. They had me laughing and crying. The narrator was awesome!!!! He brought such life to the characters. I really enjoyed listening to this story.
I enjoyed listening to Dance with the Devil so much I thought this book would match my enjoyment. I was sorely disappointed. The characters lacked depth, the plot wavered. It seemed like every time there was a "tense" moment, a new character would be introduced to veer the plot in a new direction. Good narration but still...
This book was O.K. The accents are terrible and the narrator needs to work on this. They all sound the same. Once again Ash comes in at the end and fixes everything for the protagonists and the world is filled with sunshine. You may note my sarcasm. It's just hard listening to a woman whine through an entire book about how she's going to die at 27 when you know someone is going to save her. It is a bit anticlimactic you know.
