Until the day he laid down his arms and walked into self-imposed exile. Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.

Based on the "love story" alone in this book, I was ready to polish up my 1-star rating for this one. But, luckily, a lot of other things happen that save it, and for that, I put my 1-star award away for another day.

I mean, I've seen a lot of insta-love in books, but this one... sheesh!

If just saying a kind word to a gorgeous hunk of god-man is enough to make him fall instantly in love forever, I've got a lot of kind things to say to Chris Hemsworth!

well, hello gorgeous god-man...

Sherrilyn Kenyon has, over the years and books, created the most original and ingenious series.

Choosing to walk into self-exile, after giving up fighting for the ancient Greek gods, Cratus/Jericho will be required to take up arms again if mankind and their world is to survive. But persuasion skills will have to be used if he’s to agree!

Delphine, Dream-Hunter and mankind’s protector against the predators who invade their dreams is very dedicated and committed to her role.

I think "Dream Warrior" is the first one of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dream Hunter offshoot series that I really really liked. It wasn't the heroine who sucked me in this time, it was Cratus/Jericho all the way. His hardcore attitude for everyone but his gal just made me say, "Awww" and melt a little.

She's a Dream Hunter who determined to look for the best in others. He's the son of War and Hate who has been punished for centuries for showing mercy to a child. She's determined to get him to help the tr

This book was good, but I found it at times confusing. Who the heck are Cratus/Jerucho's parents? I swear she said Styxx, but how would that be possible? Anyway, the dream hunter books are a bit harder for me to understand. Probably because they have a whole different cast of characters, plus many of the other characters, and have different timelines. Anywho, this was a good one. I enjoyed the book a lot. The romance was a bit sporadic since Jericho was so fatalistic and Delphine at times was an ...more

Cada espera por um livro novo de Sherrilyn Kenyon é sempre uma pequena tortura. Entre a série dos Predadores da Noite ou dos Predadores de Sonhos, em Portugal já temos 17 livros publicados maioritariamente pelas Edições Saída de Emergência, mas ainda assim não são os suficientes. A razão é simples, a autora é mestre em recriar universos que pensávamos já conhecer. Mesmo quando a fórmula se repete, afinal o próprio mote da história é toda ela uma espécie de redenção, até dos protagonistas mais in ...more

Ok, so it was really hard to rate this book. A lot happens, so you must read it.

While the love story here was a bit poor,the events that develop in this book are really interesting. Things between Jericho (Cratus) and Delphine happened too fast. They meet, they fall in love, the spend some days together, they get married. I mean, Kenyon could have spent some more pages to make a stronger bond between them both.

Then I got really confused about Jared and Jaden, they are two really mayor characters

This is the book that ties all the Dream Hunters together. It also has Ash and a few other Dark Hunters in it, including Nick. (There's a nice little twist at the end with Madoc!)

Delphine and Jericho were really good together. I enjoyed how their story unfolded. Lots of little twists and surprises.

There were a bunch of other interesting characters, Jaden and Jared, to name a few. It was intriguing to see how intertwined everyone is. It also very frustrating and hard to keep straight all the nam

So Cratus, or Jericho, as he is known now, refused an order from Zeus and is punished. Now he is needed and Delphine, a Dream Hunter, is sent to bring him in.

I liked it. I'm understanding more of the Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter world and I think I am able appreciate them a little more. While there is not a cl

I guess after reading the spectacular "Acheron" by Kenyon nothing else of hers is ever (or hasn't so far) going to be the same. The following books in the series haven't even stood close for me. They all seem hollow and lack the life the first in the series possessed. This will be the last book in this series that I buy, even at a repeat shop it's not worth the money.

De cada vez que é publicado um livro da serie Dark-Hunter sinto-me nas nuvens! A autora, que ao longo dos anos tem mantido os fans num euforia fenomenal, é sem duvida uma referencia para qualquer amante deste género literário. É verdade que os mistérios têm crescido à mesma velocidade que publica os livros, mas mesmo assim o numero de pessoas que se mantêm fieis à serie tem-se não apenas mantido, como aumentado.

He was back.
And he was pissed. May the Source take pity on those who’d caused his mood
Because at the end of the day, he would have none for them.

Another Sherrilyn Kenyon book finished, and another hero that I have absolutely fallen in love with! Cratus is one of the MOST tortured heroes in the series. Banished from Olympus and cursed by Zeus himself (God, I hate that guy!), he has lived a miserable existence on earth for 6,000 years, continuously tormented by Zeus and his cronies. When it is

Me ha gustado mucho, de hecho me lo he leído en un día. Me ha parecido una historia mucho mas bonita, entretenida y romántica que la anterior. Es un libro que se caracteriza por la aparición de secundarios, aparecen muchos y ha sido un placer verlos de nuevo y conocer a los que no conocía. En fin, después del mal sabor de boca que me dejó el de Stryker y Céfira este ha vuelto a engancharme a la serie. Imagino que no tardaré en leer el siguiente.

Finally finished this one!!!

I really needed a break from this series a few months ago so I stopped reading it instead of just skimming through it. And I'm so glad!! I finally had the chance to read it properly.

Delphine and Jericho make a strong couple. Although the romance wasn't the main focus in the story as with the war coming and all, it was all in all a very good one, connecting so many characters, introducing yet again new ones. I only hope I don't have to wait ten books before Nick grow

one of my all time favs
Cratus, a god born of War and Hatred, defied Zeus and has paid penance for the last 6000 years. Stripped of his powers, Cratus is forced to live as a mortal, Jericho; his subsistence, a step above slavery rations in addition to an inability to satisfy women. His torture includes sleep where endures nightly torture until death and morning rebirth. His crime was showing mercy instead of dealing death.

Finalmente a história geral avança... houve realmente um grande avanço na história com este livro.
A 'nata' do panteão grego e os Oneroi foram o foco da narrativa (claro que há sempre o 'casalinho principal', mas quem conhece estes livros sabe do que falo), e a história geral deu um ENORME passo em frente.
Os personagens desta vez foram Cratus (/Jericho) e Delphine, meia humana meia Oneroi. A personalidade de Cratus fez-me lembrar Zarek (que também chega a aparecer na trama) mas sem deixar de ter

Opinião completa em:

Gostei imenso de Cratos (ou Jericho, como quer ser chamado), o nosso herói. Teve um passado difícil e injusto, como já estamos habituadas com esta série (qual o mais atormentado?). Mas o facto de a base da história poder ser, se não a mesma então muito semelhante, não quer dizer que não tiremos prazer desta leitura.

Delphine foi uma personagem de que gostei bastante, era carinhosa e forte, uma mulher que sabia cuidar de si própria,

I think this is my favorite of the Dream-Hunter series. I don't know what it is about Jericho and Delphine that works for me, but I've reread this one a couple of times on the sly and it still drags me in and holds me captive until I'm done.

Wait. Maybe I do know. Let's take a look, shall we?

Jericho/Cratus has had a completely craptastic exile. Honestly, you'd think that the exile thing would be bad enough but the way Zeus punishes him is brutal. I'm not the hugest fan of Zeus as it is, but his a

I've loved the Dark Hunter series from the first book I read. I've been impressed with Kenyon's hold on her mythology and been intrigued with the mounting intricacies threading through the series as a whole.

But with this latest installment, and the full introduction of the new story arc, I find myself confused. In the last few novels, we've become increasingly aware of the Source and been introduced to a slew of new characters in relation to it. We've also learned some secrets about existing ch

So far I'm team Noir and Azura. Hurray EVIL people!


I did like Cratus and Delphine, but I wasn't very enthusiastic about them. Their love story wasn't really all that interesting to me.

As mentioned, Noir and Azura took the spotlight every time they're in a scene. Asmodeus did as well. He was both creepy and sweet, and I've grown fond of him. XD

I was super excited when I realized the time-line and where this book fell in the Dark-Hunter line up. It is after Acheron and Stryker's stories. I loved Ash's role and how Nick, Jaden, Jared and stryker all had bit roles in this one. You know, Sherrilyn Kenyon is not the best writer, but she is one of my favorites. Her stories are always good, fun, sexy and action-packed reads. With the exception of 1 or 2, all the heroines are kick ass girls and the guys usually have some damage, but at least ...more

No estuvo mal la lectura, el problema fue que hacía tanto tiempo que no leía un libro de esta saga que estuve perdida en el universo DarkHunter mas de medio libro.
Imaginar, caí en la cuenta de quien era Leta cuando lo hablan casi al final... Es un poco desastre que no recuerde a los personajes de libros anteriores, pero en mi defensa diré que en los que los protagonistas son DreamHunters me parecen mas flojillos, por eso mi tendencia al olvido.

This is the 4th book in the Dream Hunter Series. This means that we are introduced to a host of new characters. At this point lots of readers are scratching their heads wondering how to keep up with all this info. I'm in the same position even with the websites to help because it doesn't post spoilers, and I still can't find a solution. At this point I'm reading book to book, creating character and object descriptions to keep up. So readers could try doing that to see if that helps.

Let me just start by saying that when I started reading the first chapter in this book, I thought I had missed or skipped a book. I was so totally lost that I went to Sherrilyn Kenyon’s website to make sure that I hadn’t missed a book or perhaps a novella. I hadn’t so I was baffled for a while because the characters kept thinking and talking about how a lot of the Greek pantheon’s gods were either captured or dead. Someone named Noir had attacked them. I kept reading but I felt l
