Publisher's Summary

Zarek's point of view:

"Dark-Hunter: a soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

"Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity - I enjoy every minute of it.

"Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

"Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled - I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

"Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

"Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?"

Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

Critic Reviews

"In turns angst-filled and laugh-out-loud funny, her latest once again delivers a sensual, fast-paced read with a hero who is definitely worth the risk." (Booklist)

The pinnacle of audiobooks

This was the first DH audio recording that I purchased. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to it. I enjoyed reading the book, but listening to it made Zarek my favorite DH. This recording is part of the reason that I started paying attention to the names of narrators.

Badass Story

Very good book, at first I was kind of questioning the plot. But then I fell in love with it. You got to see the turmoil and the character turmoil through Zereks eyes. Made you feel for him and understand why he is the way he was. Ty for this awesome book!

terrible book

Dance with the devil -this book was terrible. I'm surprised so many people liked it. Long drawn out angst, get to the point. Pass on this book.

Way better narrator!!! And ZAREK!!

I loved learning Zarek's back story and at the end learning the "surprise" we find out is just mind boggling. This is my favorite of the books so far! I never really liked Zarek but after reading this you can't help but feel for the guy.
We also learn about Acheron and Artemis in this book, a little about their story and my favorite character of all time is introduced... The Simi!!!
First I have to say tho, what Zarek did to Mike in the beginning of the book pissed me off. He is there to protect Zarek and he just went and did him wrong. Uncool man! Yes I know it's a book.
Definitely worth a credit!!

Happy Reading/Listening!!!

Super funny!!

I actually laughed out loud at some of the scenarios in this book!! Especially with Astrid and her "wolf" in the cabin with the green sweater. I laughed so hard. I often laugh at books in my head but on numerous occasions I laughed out right. The whole book was worth listening to those passages. Good story. Another great dark hunters novel. Nuff said. Get it.
