I normally love the Dark Hunter series, but I just couldn't get into this one. My faviroute scenes were the ones Nick was in. I am totally in love with him!
Overall, the book was okay, I don't think you need to read it to get the story. So, if you want just skip it. It really won't matter.
This was one of the better Dark-Hunter books in the series so far. I loved the humor and also enjoyed the fact that the romance was on a slightly slower burn than is typical with most PNR books. I felt that gave time for both Ravyn and Susan to grow attached to each other on more than just a physical level.

Susan is a disgraced news reporter who has been relegated to working at a paranormal focused newspaper, run by her old college friend, after a scandal cost her her career in mainstream media.

What do I think?

Well for one, Ash needs to grow some balls. Or a spine. F*ck, even one ball would be fine for me considering the p*ssy he currently is :((( (actually, he's been like this from the start of the series which is the extremely sad point.

Second, Nick needs to be shot in the head but unfortunately that wouldn't work for him now, so yeah, he could grow some balls too and get into the adult side of life instead of staying an eternal whiny teenager. Oh well.

And so, dear Dark-Hunter univer

This book could have been spectacular.

Susan Michaels is working as a reporter for a tabloid. Two years ago she was a star investigative reporter in Seattle, chasing the big stories and winning awards. But after chasing a lead that backfired, she was disgraced. Her boyfriend of four years left her, all her friends (except Jimmy and Angie) left her, her house and car were repossessed. She's an orphan and has no family.

At this exceptionally low point in her life, she tried to kill herself on Thanks

Ok, the ending/epilogue to this book, had me like...

The rest of the story just had me. What I mean is, though there were things I had no clue about, events that had already occurred in other books that I have not read, it still did not confuse me to the point where I was just lost & could not enjoy or appreciate this book.

This book is part of a huge network of books. All things tie in together in some form or fashion. But with this story, with everything going on with the current plot, new

Argh, frustrating story. Least favorite of all the Dark-Hunters in the series (I've read the first 10, this being 10). The story did have some interesting backstory on Acheron, Nick and Stryker, but not enough to read the book in my opinion. The main romance story was a bust. Heroine (Susan) was like nails on chalkboard who spoke mostly sarcastic comments. I really wanted someone to just slap her down, just once! The hero (Ravyn) was OK, but his tortured past was no different than any other Dark ...more

WOW. Lots and lots of badly done sex wrapped very loosely around a...plot? Wait, was that a little plot I saw over there? Too tiny to make out, poor little neglected thing!

I think if a caveman came into the modern world and was introduced to this as his first book, and was told there were libraries in every city in the world with hundreds of these things, he'd hit everyone with it and return home to announce civilization has gone backward. Let's just say if you ever run into this book in a dark
“You don’t knock on the devil’s door, unless you want him to answer.”

Nicely developed story, many sublines and characters, so much emotion, mystery and fate, love and pain, wrath, woe, guilt, and grief wrapped in one novel. The plot is exciting, great paced, and well-worked-out with almost constant fighting, but it is still followable. The final fight is excellently constructed. I loved both the humor and action in it.

She is irritating, bitchy, and nosy. A real smartass with sarcastic
OMFG!!! She’s done it to me again!! I settled in for what I knew would be a great PNR book, thinking that it would be a quick and easy read - I should have known better. Yes, I slipped straight back into Kenyon’s incredible world, but an easy read… not so much, I was flipping pages madly and my heart was pounding through most of it. I can’t think of another author I’ve read who puts so much story into her stories, it’s just amazing. I can’t believe everything that happened in this book! This is ...more

Mais um sucesso da minha Rainha do Romance Sobrenatural! Devo confessar que esta é a minha serie favorita. Vampiros, humanos, sexo, luta do bem contra o mal, homens charmosos e lindos…bem, melhor parar por aqui, o que quero dizer é que a receita da autora é completamente imperdível. Neste nono volume foi a vez de Ravyn, um Were-Hunter que se tornou Dark-Hunter e que por isso foi desprezado pela sua raça.
Susan tinha tudo para ser feliz, namorado, uma carreira de sucesso, até que confiou nas pesso
I found the hardcover edition "Dark Side of the Moon" for $5.99 on the Borders bargain books rack. Sherrilyn Kenyon has a lot of books in print and seems to be quite popular. I'm not into the whole vampire lover genre, but for $5.99, I figured I could at least see what made Kenyon so popular. I must now shamefully admit that I really enjoyed "Dark Side of the Moon". I could have done without the whole gods/daimons/Dark Hunters/Appolites/etc. back story, but I loved the character of Susan. I love ...more

I was excited this was another Were-Hunter book, but it's also a Dark-Hunter book. Ravyn (I thought that was a chick's name)was born a leopard/cat were & became a DH later, so he's both.

Susan is a disgraced reporter who now works for a tabloid. She gets suckered into taking home a cat (which is really Ravyn with a power negating collar on) & she's highly allergic to cats - yeah, hilarity ensues (no, not really). Due to this initial meeting between the two characters, the rest of the boo

This book was a little slow in the beginning but really picked up about a quarter of the way through.

Ravyn and Susan were an interesting couple. Ravyn was a very hot Dark Hunter/Arcadian Were Hunter. He, of course, had some issues. His family killed him about 300 years ago after he told his potential mate that he was a Were Hunter, which caused her to gather a group of humans to attack Ravyn's villiage and kill some of his pack including his mother and sister. His brother killed him for his "bet

I think this was the first Sherrilyn Kenyon book I ever read-talk about jumping right in to the Dark Hunter world. I love the Dark Hunters and this is a fun one. Anyone who loves the DH series will love it, and PNR romance lovers will love it. I strongly recommend reading them in order (I did not-it sucked).

Susan rescues a cat who is really a dark hunter. He turns from cat to leopard to man in front of her, and she's calm about it-I loved that. She didn't scream or go all girly and faint. Girls
When Dark Hunter/Were Shifter Ravyn gets himself hauled off to the pound he thinks perhaps his time maybe up. When he is adopted by a woman who appears to be allergic to cats, he prods her to get the collar that is keeping him in cat form off in order to gain back his strength.

Susan Michaels went from a dynamic journalist to writing about aliens and creatures for a tabloid, after one wrong lead ruined her career. When her best friend calls her to the pound to share some news, she ends up with a
Gostei. :) A Susan era mesmo sarcástica! ahaha o Ravyn é um querido, gostei da parte de transformar-se em gato, pq eu adoro gatos. Ah e da parte da Susan ser alérgica ao seu companheiro :P Mais um bom livro desta autora, apesar de ja ir no 10º livro desta saga, ainda nao notei nenhum sinal de desgase, aliás cada livro é melhor que o outro, criando um grande mistério à volta do Acheron, que terei grande prazer em descobrir quando ler o livro dedicado a esta personagem.
You all know that I don't pick up hardcover books... but I just could not help myself with this one. It was a year after the last book came out, and the mmp wouldn't have come out for another six months... I COULDN'T WAIT THAT LONG!!! Again, another awesome book by Sherri. I can't get enough of this series... better than watching a movie or TV!!! I don't know how she does it, but the characters seem so real, and the events seem so real, that it just sucks you right in. It's impossible not to los ...more

This is the first book in the "Dark Hunter" series that I honestly didn't think held up to Kenyon's exacting standards. It's perplexing, too. Her stories are usually tight, well put together, her world building understandable, her characters empathetic and believable - even though often-times incredibly dark and tortured. All of those makings were present in this book, they just never came to fruition.

Take the main reason we read these books, the romance. Susan and Ravyn are both characte

This one was an okay book for me. It wasn't my favorite Dark Hunter book, nor was it my least favorite. I was really looking forward to reading Ravyn's story since he is both a Were and Dark Hunter, and the dynamic between the two did not disappoint. Sometimes I liked Susan, and sometimes I found her a little annoying... but I really liked the way she could hold her own during a fight and at the same time had some very touching vulnerable moments.

What I didn't like about the book was that the fi

I got this book for Christmas from a well-meaning relative who knew that I loved to read. That was back in 2007. I was fourteen.

If they knew the contents of this book they would be horrified that they gave it to me, so I never told them.

Well, at fourteen, this book was very shocking to me. I had never read a book with a sex scene before, let alone ones that went into such graphic detail.

But other than that, I guess it was fine. I found the story and characters a bit hard to follow, as I'd nev

Susan Michaels hates her life. She used to have a promising career as a journalist but one scandal makes her lose all. Now she lost her fiancée, her job and her apartment and had to content herself with working for a second-rate journal. When following a story, she ends up plunging into the secret world of Daimons and Dark-Hunters. And all because she brought home a cat… that wasn’t really a cat.

Thus begins Sherrilyn Kenyon’s newest Dark-Hunter adventure. I read the blurb on the back cover and t
Rebecca (everyday reader)
Ravyn has had it harsh for centuries, so when Susan comes along he is not prepared for the softness she exudes and makes him feel. Susan becomes initiated into the DH world in an unorthodox way, and Ravyn is a rare Dark-Hunter/Were-Hunter creature. Stryker is back and working with the human's in the police department to get rid of all the DH's. It's funny how Susan is allergic to cat hair but she falls for and mates with her Catman anyway. Nick and Acheron meet for the first time since Nick beca ...more

Well, damn me for thinking that this story won't be as good as the others. I got attached to a few characters and it hurts seeing them go. And it hurts knowing that more and more are dying in the books.

And this time there was no tooth feary Acheron to make everything good.
I was like NOOOOOOOO and Nick was Hell yeah!
I was still internally screaming and sobbing when Nick was killing himself, like, literally, like, AGAIN! I mean, I love him, but man, did he screw up himself from Monday to Sunday?

Arghhhhhh what the hell did Nick do!!! HOW COULD HE?? I want to slap him silly. I loved Nick with all my heart but after reading this i HATE him! He acted like a spoilt child!!

I like this series, but this book was just so-so. Especially compared with the others.
