The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy…

Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.

The Time Untime approaches…

Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn

OK, well just so you know, I'm a HUGE Sherrilyn Kenyon fan, and I've read all of the books in this series thus far. And all I can say is I really wanted to love this book.... but I didn't. I can say that I did like parts of it. There was some really funny banter between the characters. She did bring back a few of my favorites in this book but for only short periods of time.

I thought the main character, Kateri was a bit weak. Not in spirit but in development. I found her frequent visions of the

Excerpt from Time Untime:

December 10, 2012

Kateri Avani jerked in her sleep as her dreams tormented her. No longer a woman full grown, she was again a little girl sitting in her grandmother’s house, playing with the dolls her grandmother had made for her and her cousin Sunshine from the corn that grew in the garden out back. Barely twelve, Kateri brushed her small hand over the black cornsilk hair of the male doll.

Her grandmother sat beside her, at the old-fashioned red kitchen table, shelling pe

I miss New Orleans!!! If you're new on the Dark hunter series don't pick this..pick Seize the Night or Dance with the devil hah not that I'm bragging the two books;)


This book is not about the Greek culture, not the Romans, Egyptian or even the Atlantean which I love, its the Author's Culture, the Cherokee(tsalagi) and add some Mayan culture in it since December 21, 2012 plays a significant date:)


I think it gave the book justice of talking about the Chekoree and Mayans for almost half the book si

I think that even for die-hard fans of this series, this book is going to be hard to digest. After initial 100 or so excruciating, dense pages about the Mayan background of the heroine, most of the book -almost until the end- was filled with heroine’s flashbacks of the dreams she had about hero's past. Seriously, something said by the hero would trigger heroine’s flashback and 1 or 2 pages later the dialog continued. Besides the many pages retelling the past through flashbacks, it had very disap ...more

Grrrrr...I had just spent a half an hour on a review and once again lost it! I will write another one tomorrow...how frustrating!

Alright, one more time with feeling!!
This 17th installment of the Dark Hunter series was somewhat a disappointment to me. Not because it was badly written; but because there were so many legends and myths told during the course of the story that it just became confusing. If I am being honest, in two weeks time alot of them I won't even remember. There were so many fact

As many of you know I have practically been waiting on pins and needles for this book, It didn't seem like August was going to get here and then I bantered back and forth whether I should get it now or wait. When I found out my favorite character in this universe was going to play a good part in this book. Well you know I jumped and clicked buy.

I dove into this book almost immediately(had to wait for my Kindle to charge)But once I did I devoured this book in once setting. I should slow down and

400 plus pages of WTF are they talking about...that pretty much sums up my review. My mother always said that if I don't have anything nice to say, to say nothing at all. I would love to follow her words today with this review, however, I can't (sorry, Mom).

What was the story about? I have no idea. Who is Katera's father? I have no idea. What is the moral of the story? Who knows.

Truly from beginning to end, this book did not make sense to me. There were far too few pages of the beloved Dark Hun

**3.5 - 4 stars**

Kateri grew up surrounded by Cherokee legends but she's a scientist and hardly believes any of those stories. Ren grew up as a Keetoowah and made many of those legends. He still mainly lives in that world hardly interacting with humans until the day he has to save Kateri.

Let's just cut to the chase...this book is confusing!! I've read it and it's still hard for me to wrap my head around everything. Obviously, if you've read the series this far, you get the Dark Hunters and thei

It's ben a year since I've read a SK book and it feels like I never left... It's all so very familiar, not that that's a bad thing. I used to ADORE Sherrilyn Kenyon. The widening specter of grand scheme storylines really made me feel diconnected to the story... Not to mention the time paradoxes of Niock's series. I don't know why, but this Native American mythology is not really my favorite, but there were things I liked:

1. The familiar SK formula. I like the tortured hero/spunky heroine

I’ve been putting this book off for such a long time now, but I refused to read Styxx until I had read this one. I haven’t skipped a book so far in this series and I don’t plan on doing so now. I put this off because of this kind of storyline… about all the Mayan stuff. I just don’t like any of it. I don’t understand the terminology, and I understand the storyline even less. None of it makes any damn sense to me, so I get super bored really quickly.

The flashbacks about Kateri's grandmother we

This book wasn't as bad as some others in this series but also not one of the best.

One of my biggest complaints - one I already had with Retribution - is the fact that SK adds another pantheon/mythology to the Dark Hunter world. I think this is way too much. It's great that she has Native American blood and wants to honor this but a stand-alone trilogy would have been better in my opinion.

Most of the book felt like ramblings about myths, visions, gods, names, places, flashbacks, more names, plac

This book surprised me by being more interesting than Retribution, but it still fell flat and useless. Besides Ren's and Kateri's moments and the things that happened between them, nothing new really happens in the DH world. Nick gets the upper hand in a scene with Acheron and he pretty much had the chance to kill Acheron but didn't. Honestly, it would've been better if Acheron had died. He is such a pussy to do ANYTHING that sometimes you wonder why he's even "strong" in the first place. Achero ...more

Huh??!! I have no idea what happened in this book. Seriously, I understood Metamorphosis and Animal Farm better than this book. I gave the 2 stars only because I enjoyed the first 10 or 11 in the series and it hasn't sunk to Anita Blake awfulness, yet.

However, I need an outline or CliffNotes to follow the crazy mythology in this book. Honestly, I skipped over most of it because it was confusing. I also skimmed the excessive monologues made by the main characters. I don't know something about tr

Time Untime is sort-of a companion piece to Retribution. If you enjoyed that one, you'll probably like this one. The thing is, Retribution was one of my least favorite books in the Dark Hunter series. I think I have reached maximum capacity on large-scale additional mythology in this already complicated universe. I felt very disconnected to the Native American elements featured so heavily in that book and I knew that same thread would continue into this one.

Some of the problems I had wi

Part of me is somewhat surprised to see how many freaking books there are in this series, but again, this is Sherrilyn Kenyon we are talking about. This woman doesn’t sleep. She writes. And damn, she still writes good stories.

While TIME UNTIME isn’t exactly my favorite of the series, I still think readers should check it out. The one thing that grips me with SK’s writing is the fact that she writes with such ease. It’s never a chore to read one of her books and regardless of whether it’s a newer

Talon let out a long sigh. "All right. Fine. You asked for it. Let's see you not freak when we tell you that you're the mother of Armageddon."

Time Untime is a mix between Greek Mythology and Native American forklore. As a Native American myself I was excited to explore just how Sherrilyn Kenyon was planning to pull this off intertwining the two amongst each other. I'm ashamed to say that I often felt detached from the story and the world building was a bit overwhelming at times. This book had ma

This is Ren Waya story and I have to say the more I read about how he was treated and abused by family and community I wanted to open up a can of whoop ass on all of them. Thank the gods for Kateri, she isthe best thing to ever come into his life!

The story line is about resetting the time clock to prevent the end of days and ghe opening of the gates hell . Ren And Kateri are key players in this reset. Kateri journey of discovery will take her to meeting her father and believing in things she ne

Ok first let me get something out of the way.. Truthfully I wasn't really looking forward to this book. I was just turned of by it being another Los Vegas set story, I just love my New Orleans Dark-Hunters soo much better. But I have to hand it to Miss Kenyon, she wraps you up into the stroy so much you get sucked into it and you end up forgeting that you was thinking you was going to hate the story and then your like.( WOW ) ! But I was sooooo happy that most of my Favorite Characters made a ha ...more

Too Many chiseled, sculpted faces.

I have read every single dark, were, dream hunter book but this one did not impress me. I am tired of the usage of the same words over and over, the part of me that craved this book the most was a little dissapointed.
Hello again Talon, Sasha, Urian.
It was my understanding It was almost impossible to make Ren talk, but it seemed to me like he talks a bunch, told Kateri long stories. and also very incongruent how he didn't stutter not once.
Big shock: Acheron's ha

This book was interesting to read not as great as other Dark-Hunter books. I feel maybe this book should be part of a spin-off series because it really doesn't do much for the over arching story line. Now I am a sucker for Native American folklore it was interesting to mix the pantheons in the story. But it was a bit confusing.

It wasn't one of SK best when it comes to this series. There was too much going back and Ren had too many doubts about himself. I mean I understand why he was the way he was, With his childhood( which reminded me A LOT of Archeron's life) which was good and bad in its way. It was nice to relate it to Ash but at the same time I wish SK had given him a totally different kind of childhood to make him the way he was. AND we are told something that had me cocking my head to the side and wondering why ...more
Jane
Well to be honest. I didn't like it. As a story, it downright sucked and I'm sad to say that, because SK was one of the first authors I started reading avidly. The only good parts were the tidbits concerning the DH series as a whole. The rest of the story seemed rushed, and unfulfilling. Reminds me of a very watered down version of her "Devil May Cry" book (very good book btw). This book though, was very preachy, I'm starting to wonder if it's the after effects of some life lesson. I know SK's c ...more

Twenty-second in the Dark-Hunter paranormal romance series. This one is one of the Native American spin-offs. The couple focus is on Ren, the Thunderbird, and Dr. Kateri Avani, the Keeper.

My Take
Okay, please take into account that I'm irritated with Kenyon for this sudden shift in the Dark-Hunter pantheon. Essentially she got bored and wanted to play with Native American beliefs and stories and couldn't be bothered to tie it into the primary storyline she's been writing for the first, oh, ninete

I really did like this book. It started out a little hard for me because I didn't remember much from Jess's book. I actually contemplated stopping this book and re-reading Jess's because I felt so lost in the beginning of this one. I decided not to and I'm glad, because eventually the feeling of lostness went away and I just got into this book. I love Ren and Kateri. They are just awesome characters. I wanted them together from very early on in the book. I did feel that this book tended to be on ...more

Really, I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars, but since I don't know how to actually input a "half star" AND I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing, I rounded-up to 4 stars. Overall, I liked this book, not as much as past books in the series, but some of them (e.g. Fantasy Lover, Acheron) are hard to beat...

I loved Ren and Teri's love, a lot. And I LOVED the epilogue;it was really touching.

Complaints: storyline was a little hard to follow with Teri's psychic flashbacks of the past constantly interru

Time Untime was an entertaining read, but it was surprisingly short and seriously lacking in detail, which is unusual for Kenyon. Usually there is much more interaction and much more going on in the Dark Hunter novels. But this book was short and to the point. Not a bad thing in most cases, but I was disappointed by the lack of explanation and character interaction.

The story itself has a lot of potential. I loved that she didn't take the usual apocalypse route and instead went with myths fewer

“Life is messy, Ren. It's not easy and it's definitely not for the timid. Everyone has a past. Things that stab them right between the eyes. Old grudges. Old shame. Regrets that steal your sleep and leave you awake until you fear for your own sanity. Betrayals that make your soul scream so loud you wonder why no one else hears it. In the end, we are all alone in that private hell. But life isn't about learning to forgive those who have hurt you or forgetting the past. It's about learning to forgive yourself for being human and making mistakes. Yes, people disappoint us all the time. But the harshest lessons come when we disappoint ourselves. When we put our trust and our hearts into the hands of the wrong person and they do us wrong. And while we may hate them for what they did, the one we hate most is ourself for allowing them into our private circle. How could I have been so stupid? How could I let them deceive me? We all go through that. It's humanity's brotherhood of misery.” 55 likes
