Recommends it for: Fans of well-written paranormal romance and urban fantasy, mythology fans
If Kenyon had been borne before modern times, she would have been a traveling bard. For this woman can tell a story like no other writer on earth. I have been a fan of hers for almost ten years, starting with her historical romances written as Kinley MacGregor. I had turned away from my true self, abandoning the world of fantasy and the supernatural. I didn't read any horror, fantasy, and I turned my nose up at paranormal. 'Who wants to read a book with a vampire as a romance hero?' I scoffed. I...more

I feel like such a bad person for dislikeing this book. I mean so many people loved it, saying stuff like this is my favorite out of the whole series ect. I just couldn’t see it. I couldn’t connect with either of the main characters. I didn’t the plot and I sure as hell didn’t like the end. Full review to come.

Even the devil may cry when he looks around hell and realizes that he's there alone.”

Devil May Cry is the story of Sin of Sumeria and Katra Agrotera.

Kat already appeared in previous books of the series. She is the daughter of (view spoiler), bearer of not only unimaginable power and strength, but also kindness and honesty. She is fair-minded and caring.

Recommends it for: all dark-hunter lovers
I LOVED it! Sin is a Sumerian Fertility God whos powers were removed by Artemis thousands of years ago. Katra is one of Artemis's Kori who is sent by Artemis to kill Sin. After traking him down, and getting to know him a bit, she finds all that Artemis says may not be the truth. Shocker.

Katra finally gets to meet her father, Ash. Not many books make me cry, but I teared up when Ash finally learns of her existance after eleven thousand years, and gets to meet her. He is just so wonderful!
I absolutely loved it, my fave of all of the Dark Hunter books so far.

Katra is a phenomenal heroine – I loved everything about her. She’s witty and sarcastic, and uber-powerful, and I love the way she handles everything that goes down in the story. Same with the oh-so-hot and tortured Alpha hero, Sin. And the two of them together were absolute dynamite. There was intense chemistry from the beginning, and brilliant banter throughout. And they had a great partnership, both of them battling togeth...more

"3.5 stars" This far along in the Dark-Hunter series, there are still things that I enjoy about it. The characters are usually likable and generally relatable, the Greek mythology woven into the stories is interesting, and the overall Dark-Hunter concept is intriguing. These things, as well as being a huge fan of Acheron and very much wanting to read his story, have kept me coming back and slowly working my way though the series. However, lately, whenever I pick up one of...more

Recommends it for: anyone who read any of the DH books
Seriously, this has to be my favorite of the series. I would NOT recommend reading this book first, but for anyone who has followed along over the years-this book answers questions, gives more insight into main characters (like Ash) and just is a fantastic read. It's classic Kenyon but with SO much more and leaves you dying waiting for the next book to come out. This is a book I will probably wind up reading a billion times over because it was THAT GOOD.

I WANTED to like this book. Unfortunately, it fell flat compared to the other DH books. No matter how much i tried, i simply couldn't force myself to care about, or even really like Kat. Her character has grated on my nerves since her first appearance in the series. And an entire book about her, did nothing to endear her to me.


Also, There were several aspects of this story that didn't add up. Sin forgiving Kat so easily for what she had done to him in the past, being the main bone of...more

This is probably my favorite in this series since Kenyon strayed from the original Dark Hunters. Both Katra and Sin are characters one can absolutely fall in love with - and undoubtably will! Both are members of the God's pantheons, both know and have lived with both the good and bad that entails. Where Katra was essentially loved and cared for, however, Sin has seen the very worst of what the Gods can do. While Sin is bent of vengeance and trusts no one, Katra's overwhelming love and com...more
I loved this hero Sin - absolutely gorgeous, Sumerian, and tortured of course ;) Sin has curly black hair, topaz lion-like eyes, and due to his heritage, darkly tanned skin. What an awesome combination! I have a weakness for Italian/Latin/Middle Eastern...basically, anything exotic, and Sin is it! Sin is similar to past Dark-Hunters I've loved in that he's shunned by the Dark-Hunter community and misunderstood (think Zarek and Valerius). The book starts off with Sin taking the heroine Kat prison...more
Great read! Sin is positively SINFUL.............Kat and Sin are great together BUT more importantly.............what happened between Kat and Ash took top honors in this was heartwarming, very sweet and was glad to read Ash getting just a little bit of happiness.

Artemis is such a cold hearted, self centered, selfish, lying, no conscience BITCH and I hope somewhere in the rest of this series she gets whats coming to her.

On to the next one............................

Recommends it for: Anyone who loves sarcastically dry humor, sexy characters, and kick ass fight scenes.
Recommended to Jacqueline by: No one; but the series was recommended by a kind Books-A-Million
While every single Dark-Hunter novel kicks serious ass in some way or another, I think that Devil May Cry proves on a another level just how talented Sherrilyn Kenyon is as a creative writer.

Each Dark-Hunter novel shares about the same characteristics- almost all include something related to the Daimons or Apollites. While the common perception might be that carrying over the same "bad guys" could make the books boring, such is not the case for each story is unique unto itself. However, that be...more
If I remember correctly, Devil May Cry was not as popular with the reviewer's as some of Kenyon's earlier Dark Hunter novels.

Me? I liked it, because no matter what other people say, Kenyon's not only did it as one of the firsts, she did it best. Sure there are times we feel cheated on some of the stories because we all have ideas on how some of these characters tales should be told and it would seem Kenyon is so busy cranking out their stories she doesn't seem to take the time to tell their stor...more

I'm not quite sure how to review this book. I enjoyed many parts of it....and others just annoyed me.

The Sin/Kat story was very interesting. I love how certain characters just know that they've fallen in love fast and hard. What I didn't like was how Acheron was instantly a father and how his daughter kept calling him daddy. (Don't boo me yet..) I know that he is Simi's "dad" but I just felt that that type of intimacy between a father and daughter came a little to fast for me. I can see...more

Katra is sent to kill Sin by her mother, Artemis. He seems truly deserving of death, until she learns what he's really doing. Sin has been so betrayed, by so many especially Artemis, that he prefers solitude. Sin and Katra are surprised when love finds them both, and Kat gives Sin her virginity. Surprise! Surprise! Katra is also Acheron's daughter, he has never known but Kat, Appolymi, and Simi have. Simi and Xirena go to help Kat and Sin with the gallu demons and they discover other surprising...more
This was not my favorite Dark-Hunter book, although I did find the gallu a formidable opponent. It was also interesting to get a bigger glimpse into the world of the gods, particularly the relationship between Acheron, Artemis and Kat. Unfortunately I felt like the connection between Sin and the Gallu wasn't fully fleshed out and at times the plot seemed a bit forced.

Overall this book was definitely worth reading because it really advances the knowledge of the world of the gods, but it could hav...more

El libro no está nada mal: tiene acción y la historia no está nada mal. El único problema que le veo es que Sin (aunque tenga sus razones) es un poco demasiado tozudo y desconfiado. Por otro lado, Katra es un poco prejuiciosa con respecto a daimons y demás, especialmente teniendo en cuenta quién es su abuela y que no ve con tan malos ojos a Stryker.
Se meten unas nuevas criaturas, los demonios gallu, quizás porque después de tantos y tantos libros una está harta de daimons y weres por todas part...more

I always have hit and misses with Sherrilyn's books but this one I thought was really well written. Very entertaining and even little suspense in there. But mostly I like this one cause it made me care about the characters involved and made me care about the romance/relationship between the two main characters. It's a good read so I highly recommend.
"Five Big Ones for Sin & Katra!!!"

"Vengeance. Some say it’s a poison that infiltrates the soul and strips it bare. That its path only destroys the one who treads it. But to others, it’s mother’s milk. It nourishes and thrives— gives them a reason to survive when they have nothing more to hold them to this world."
This was the most emotional book in the series thus far. While Artemis keeping Kat a secret from Acheron doesn't surprise me, it does tick me off...royally. It was her own her selfishness that kept father and daughter apart for 11 thousand years. She knew very well what she was doing and how much it was going to hurt Ash, yet she still wants him to love her.

I cried when Ash finally met Kat and knew that she was his daughter. Kenyon was masterful when she wrote those scenes. Acheron' s pain at n...more
Oh how I loved this story about Sin and Kat. They are terrific in this 13th book in the Dark Hunters series. I also learned more about Ash, and I am so ready and nervous about his story. This was an excellent read, you won't be disappointed.
I have to say this is the best of the series so far. :D I enjoy reading the story of Sin and Kat. Goooood! Artemis is getting on my nerves. Such a bitch. Im so excited to read the story of Acheron.
Another great book from Kenyon.
Seems like there is more development of the characters and looks like a big set up for "Acheron", the next book.
I can't wait!
I really enjoyed this one. I love the characters of Sin and Katra plus more of Simi and her sister Xirena.

This may be the best book in the series...but then again, I've said that at least 7 times and I'm on book 11.

I loved EVERYTHING about it. So many questions answered. Kat and Sin's relationship was utterly beautiful. The revelations in this book?! AMAZING!

I laughed, cried, and swooned. Onto the next!



Sin, a Sumerian fertility ex-god and now owner of a Vegas casino, but as a Dark-Hunter instead of fighting Daimons, Sin is out saving mankind from Sumerian gallu which are more deadlier. They prey on humans which one bite will infect them and turn into a gallu. Artemis stole his powers over three thousand years ago and now with the gallu and Dimme demons trying to escape from their tomb, he is racing against time. Sin is looking for his twin brother, Zakar, who has disappeared and needs his help...more

“She didn't understand that. "How can anyone be afraid of love?"
"How can they not?" His face was completely aghast. "When you love someone... truly love them, friend or lover, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt—you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it's crippling—like having your heart carved out. It leaves you naked and exposed, wondering what you did to make them want to hurt you so badly when all you did was love them. What is so wrong with you that no one can keep faith with you? That no one can love you? To have it happen once is bad enough... but to have it repeated? Who in their right mind would not be terrified of that?”
“You know the incredible thing about hearts is their unbelievable capacity for forgiveness. You’d be amazed what people will overlook when they love someone. (Acheron)” 496 likes
