From #1 New York Times best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon comes the next thrilling installment in her blockbuster Dark-Hunter® series.
Harm no human…
A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.
Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief - Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meeting the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.
A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster….
Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.
Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.

I enjoy supernatural romances and fantasy!
Don't get me wrong -- I loved the book, and really enjoy the Dark Hunter series. However, I felt a little let down when the end came, having expected more from the build up of the story. The story of Buffalo, Butterfly, Coyote and Wren was intriguing -- however, I felt in the end as if it was unresolved in the bigger story of the book, with only the disclaimer that more would be expected in time to come.
Also, the main theme of the Dark Hunter books was almost skipped over here, with various forays into the realm, and yet kind of like swiss cheese. I wish Ms. Kenyon had written a longer book, where everything was more part of the whole, and not so many scenes strung together.
Hopefully, she plans to pull this together in a further story down the road, but I have my doubts. And, I will say, the bonus at the end of the book was great!
I love the Dark Hunter series, but I was disappointed with this book. I felt the story was too similar of structure to the other books. Not to mention there was only one love scene and the end was wrapped up way too quickly. It felt like Kenyon had quit and wanted to finish the book in one paragraph. However, I LOVED the bonus part with Acheron and his new baby. Thank you very much for that. I was so excited and happy to be able to know how that turned out. Still- I will be looking for the next book.
I have an addiction to Audio books. What I can't get at the library, I come to Audible and they are always having a sale. I have way more audiobooks than I could possible listen to in over 3 years, but I can't help but adding to my collection and I read a little of everything but mostly romance and paranormal goodies.
I'm a fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon and have read all the dark hunter series. I had a little bit more trouble following this book, because it entered so much new info and hard to keep characters straight. Look at Sherrilyn's website for additional help.
I love Sherrilyn Kenyon, but felt the book needed to be longer and more detailed etc. I think more information needed to be added to explain the stoy and build a greater love affair. However the bonus chapter made the rest of the book worth the purchase, so glad to had more of Tory and Ash. The narrator as always was great.
I AM God's BELOVED destined for GREATNESS, Devoted to the purpose of LOVING GOD and dedicated to give Him my UTMOST. I am focused to fulfill my GOD-GIVEN DESTINY and live my life to its MAXIMUM POTENTIAL. I am determined to make a dent in this world as a WOMAN OF INFLUENCE leaving a legacy of FAITH and SIGNIFICANCE.
Boring, Lost, Snubbed
Of course I love the Dark Hunter series. I just didn't enjoy this book. Seemed to me it was all over the place.
When he pinned her into the room
I did want to but it took me about a good 2 weeks I just wasn't into it
Love Jess from Dance with the Devil, and glad to see him get a story, but I'm very confused...I downloaded this book the day it came out, and listened to it many times, as it was so very different from the other DH books, with the native American theme and all.....
Then, in anticipation of the upcoming "Time Untime" I listened to it again this week, and it was different ...I mean, the end was different.... Much more detail, and I am VERY confused....
He really has no range.... All his characters sound "American" despite the discriptions of their ethnic backgrounds....While, in comparison to Maggie meg reed, carrington macduffie, and (shudder) William Dupree, he's the lessor of all evils, he can't seem to remember that he's done these books before, and doesn't carry through with his characters.... The main discrepancy being Nick, but there are many more....Sin, Zarek, Dev, etc.
Probably, out of morbid curiosity
Avid reader/listener of romance, action, thrillers, and spy novels.
It's in the top ten. I loved this book! It had plenty of action and humor.
The other DH books. Somehow the world's always in danger and humans need protecting.
I loved Choo Co La Tah's accent. Very British and very cool. Jess's voice was awesome. Cowboys rule.
Choo Co La Tah because he's an elder and a protector not only of the world but of Jess and Angela. He was fantastic.
Liked to hear jess's drawl but sometimes they needed a woman's voice for his love interest
The authenticity of the character..all cowboy
Title made sense
I have loved all of Sherilyn's books, but this one missed the mark. The lead woman kills a bunch of dark-hunters, is a total bad-ass, and then turns into a whiny little helpless girl when Sundown comes along? I want my ladies to have more fight, even when they are wrong. She should have tried to kill him more often and with more success. She should have left him hating himself for wanting her instead of her climbing into his lap with barely a whimper. This made this book too boring and sappy to finish.
I will have to wait for the next book to see if it is better.
I usuall like Mr. Graham, but not even he could save this book.
I want fond of any of them. No spine or grit.
I love all of Sherrilyn Kenyon books. This one like the others keeped me at the edge of my seat. I'm getting ready to order the next one.
