This series has all the usual things for a good paranormal romance and then it has all the ingredients for a really great series Sherrilyn takes you to the point where you think oh I know how this is going to end then she completely turns your theory on its head Now maybe to some extent there is a little predictability but with the constant twists and turns in the plot Not to mention the sneak peeks at other characters and the character development for the likes of Ash This series just never gets boring I am currently on my second time round for this series and I am still just ad excited about reading them as the first time I would recommend this book to even those unsure about the genre. Talon was once a Celt warrior cursed by his ancient gods Following the murder of his sister, the dying Talon had made a deal with the goddess Artemis He had been given one act of vengeance against the clan who betrayed him, in exchange for his soul and his eternal service as a Dark Hunter Talon has sworn to fight Daimons and rescue the human souls they ve captured He has never had cause to regret this choice until he meets Sunshine Runningwolf The unconventional Sunshine should be Talon s perfect woman She is beautiful, sexy and isn t looking for a long term commitment But thetime Talon spends in her company thehe starts yearning for dreams of love and family that he buried centuries ago But loving Sunshine would be dangerous for both of them Talon is destined never to know peace or happiness while his enemies still seek to destroy him and everyone close to him I am officially hooked to the Dark Hunter World This is the third book in the series and features the Dark Hunter Talon and Sunshine Runningwolf Talon is an ancient Celt who lives out in the middle of the swamp surrounded by his favourite pet alligators After losing his wife Nynia in childbirth and his sister after being tricked by his clan and them murdering her he basically doesn t want to and can t let anyone into his heart That is until he meets the eccentric Sunshine Sunshine is an artist and meets Talon after he is run over by a float at Mardi Gras, they obviously end up having wild and passionate love cough cough and their love story blooms from there It does turn out that Sunshine actually is Nynia re incarnated although still also Sunshine she has Nynia s soul in her re born and that she was brought back so that the god Camulus could make Talon suffer even than he did in the past however the book does have a nice little twist re this at the end.It took me quite a while to get around to discovering this series as when you look up Sherrilyn Kenyon on and these books in list order it actually shows Dragonswan as being the first book but it s not and Dragonswan is never ever available to buy As a girl who likes to read all books in a series and most definitely the first one in a series, thinking that I couldn t get the first book did actually stop me starting the series I have only just discovered that the first book is actually Fantasy Lover, read this and have now proceeded to order the rest of the series Sherrilyn has now joined the ranks on Gena Showalter and Kresley Cole on my favourite authors list and I can t wait to read the next one. Terrific third book Can a free living hippy type cope with an immortal warrior Can they defeat his curse whilst still fighting vampiric forces that are pitted against them Awesome book and a must for all Dark Fantasy lovers I would recommend reading them in order as they are all interlinked. I am a fan of the Dark Hunter series, and enjoyed this book as much as the others However, as with many Sherrilyn Kenyon books, there is very little historical accuracy As a history studant this is a real bug bear, especially when it comes to pre Roman Britain Where to begin Talon is suppossed to be from North England somewhere the location is not specified If this were so he would NOT worship the Morrigan She was a goddess isolated to Ireland, and not worshiped in England Likewise, the Name Morrigantee is there fore invalid Another thing was the alliance between his tribe and the Gauls The Gauls were located in France, no way in hell would a tribe in Northern England be that concerned with them, it just makes no sense, as does the idea of Talon running off to go slaughter them in one day.However, I am aware that not everyone is as interested or as anal about such things as me, and so, it is a good book if you arn t interested in this. Can t wait to read the next one in the series Love the series, dislike the book This is the second time I have tried unsuccessfully to get into Night Embrace Sadly it doesn t hold my attention, my mind wanders, which is a clear sign that I am bored Why Well it s down to the female lead, who to my mind is a well intentioned twit She is irritating to the extreme, I find myself getting so annoyed with her idiocy, that I just want to shout pull youreslf together. An Adult Fiction Series for Supernatural Horror Fans that I highly recommend I originally read from library but got addicted am purchasing the full series.Love, Passion, Humour, Tragedy Abuse Recovery.Sherrilyn Kenyon is a fantastic writer The Dark Hunter Series expresses emotions of the lead characters different in each book support characters so well within this fictional world the genre of horror supernatural that I can fully relate to them and usually am in tears or laughing out loud trying not to when around family to avoid seeming insane All the books are inter related plot characters Dark Hunter World but can be read as individual supernatural love stories.
