I am in love the Dark Hunter series and make sure I get a copy as soon as humanly possible. I received this one two days ago and immediately moved it to the top of my to be read pile. I just finished it and I am feeling very sad. I have to admit that though this was a good book, it just didn’t strike me as being from the same author. Did some Diamon steal Kenyon’s soul leaving her to write a good but not great novel? If I had to describe this novel I would say it lacks soul.
Susan’s and Ravyn’s characters really didn’t have much depth to them. In reading the jacket I was excited thinking here was another tortured dark hunter like my absolute fav Zarek, but all we got was a women with a smart mouth and a wishy washy hero who is both a were hunter and dark hunter, but gets caught while trying to look up a girls skirt as a cat (where is the normal alpha Dark Hunter’s style and class? Sheesh, I thought boys stopped trying to catch a peek in high school) and in the end walks into situation where he is again blind sided and needs Susan to save him again. Beta boy all the way…
The secondary characters were interesting as some are returning. I really like Erika and hope she features in a later story (maybe with Nick). Arthemis must has beaten Ash too much after the last book because he was the shell of his former self. No Simi this time… (I love her). Nick is off on a whinny baby direction. I was really interested in Cael and his wife’s plot. Hopefully they come back too.
Grade: C (don’t waste your money on the hardcover).
Cover: Ok I love the colors and overall effect but the cover model looks kreepy (serial killer kreepy not I want to take home a bad boy creepy). And what is with the scarf?
