What the Critics Say

"Kenyon's Dark-Hunter books are changing the face of the vampire novel, making it hip, darker, and all the more appealing." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Poor narration makes for a hard listen"
    What did you like best about Night Embrace? What did you like least?

    The narrator pours on a Georgia accent so thick and syrupy you have to remind yourself that the story is in Louisana. Then she tries her version of a Gaelic accent. She isn't just bad -- she's horrendous! It's like listening to a native of the Hindu tongue trying to imitate a Scotsmen. If a narrator can't do accents believably and well, they shouldn't do them at all. <br/>


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carrington MacDuffie’s performances?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy these goofy, wackadoodle, rewrite mythology, bend it to urban fantasy romances. They are fun and light hearted with a touch of adventure to keep the love story moving. Sherrilyn Kenyon likes to make their childhood or young adulthood traumatic -- and that is a bit overly repetitive, but the humour and romance compensate well. Light listening. If you take your mythology of monsters and gods seriously, avoid these stories.

    "was hard to listen to."
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Carrington MacDuffie?

    Sherrilyn Kenyon yes, Carrington MacDuffie no. Sherrilyn needs to cut out of her books her porn addiction and rely on her story telling skills. Carrington needs to stick with woman voices only.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not the right narrator for this book or series.

    "Love this series! Have listened multiple times."

    The Dark Hunter series is the perfect mix of romance, action and humor. Holds your interest while making you swoon. Narration is fantastic. I have listened to this series more than once, which is a rarity for me.

    Any additional comments?

    This book was a chore to finish and I'm being generous with 2 stars.<br/><br/>After a 1/3 into the book, the story just nose dived into a jumbled mess. The main characters, Sunshine, who was funny and cute, and Talon, a tortured alpha male with a temper, meet and fall into "insta love". Sunshine was fun and made the book tolerable most of the time. Talon, on the other hand, was a centuries old Darker Hunter, with all sorts of juju powers, but could barely hold his own in a fight. He couldn't make up his mind about what kind of love he felt, hence the tortured soul. Yawn. Even though Sunny and Talon were fated, they had zero chemistry. There was no sexual tenion whatsoever to their sex scenes and they had plenty. Boring. <br/>By the end of the book, I couldn't care less if Talon had his curse resolved, though it was very obvious things would work out in his favor. I was also tired of hearing about Sunny's potulli scent.<br/><br/>The other problems I had with this book -<br/>The constant bickering and fighting between the other characters. A bunch of pompous, posturing Alpha Males acting like Tweens.<br/>The other characters were supposed to be bad-ass Dark Hunter, some centuries old, and they repeatedly got their butts kicked?<br/>The author had so much going on, with soooo many characters, I stopped trying to keep up and lost interest.<br/><br/>The narration was bad to horrible at times, and I'm sure it affected my enjoyment of this book<br/>

    Sherrilyn Kenyon is a great storyteller. Her characters are amazing. I love how each book is new but regular characters check in. I Love the Dark Hunters series.
