Publisher's Summary

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.

Give me more

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.

I Mark This Book As "FUNNY"

short review:

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.

Give me a Viking anyday.

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.

The Dark-Hunter novels are great!

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!!

Kiss of the Night

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.

World-Building Book; Crucial for the series

I've been a long time fan of Sherri, and I believe this is one of the crucial books that sets into motion later points of the series. For starters, our main couple includes an Apollite woman. In the previous books, not much is said about Apollites, except their unfortunate history with Apollo. In this book, we learn to see them as "human"-beings that have souls as well as customs of their own. More so, this book opens up and introduces Kat, Urian and Stryker, who are all important for down the road, and hints on some things about Acheron. Overall, I enjoyed this book because of how much new information we gain about the world Sherri sets us in as well as seeing old friends from previous books. However, there is a small consent issue that I didn't like. I understand gods meddle, and I have read all the Greek myths, but it was still a breach that made me uncomfortable. However, all's well that ends well, since no one seems particularly upset later by it.

-I have listened to Fred Berman before and I enjoy his voice very much. He tries to make each person stand out, and gives accents to the characters. Sometimes the voices mix, but I don't mind it that much since he sounds relatively normal, like a story-teller, than some narrators who just sound awful.
