Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks, but then she gets a lead on a story that could salvage her extinct career.

“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
Most of the reviews for this are either 4-5's or 1's. I think it has to do with the personality of the main girl, Susan. Everyone either loves her or hates her. And, I'm sorry Monty, but I loved her. We usually hate the same things, but I can't resist a character that is so sarcastic that every word that comes out of her mouth is snark. It's like we are soul-mates or something. She is the ultimate smart-ass and will make wise cracks even while everything sucks. I like that.

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.
Dark Side Of The Moon is the ninth installment in Dark-Hunter series. As always, Sherrilyn Kenyon delivers an excellent story, a fantastic combination of Fantasy, Romance, and Action, in her own unique writing style. This book contains an interesting storyline and endearing characters.

Ravyn Kontis was a Were-Hunter, an Arcadian leopard, who was betrayed by his human mate and that caused him to lose his loved ones, his family, and his life. With his wrath and the need to take revenge, he became t

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.

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
3.5 Yup, it's as good as they say it is.

I admit, I expected this book to be good. And guess what? It was!
It was funny as hell, I absolutely loved the main female character. She was sarcastic and fun and smart! I liked her!

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

I had to go back to read this one since it had not been available from the library when I would have read in order with the other books. Going backwards did it no favors. First, subjecting myself to Acheron/Artemis sex scenes made me want to puke. Seriously. They were awful before, but really, really awful after reading Acheron.

I felt almost no romantic feelings bewteen the MCs. I get that Ravyn was hot. Since it seemed all we heard about from the heroine was her inner musings on all the hot guy

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

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.

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

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

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.

To be honest this wasn't the most memorable book in this series. I knew going in I wouldn't be too interested because I didn't know any of the characters that well. Don't get me wrong, this book was still pretty good but not up to par with others in the series. A problem that most other readers had was with Susan. She can come off as a bitch or a little insecure at times and that makes her irritating, or you could have loved her sarcastic, kick ass self. I was more in the later. I also found som ...more
'Disgraced' investigative reporter, Susan Michaels, responds to a tip and finds herself in a world and story her current tabloid employer would salivate to write when she accidently adopts were-Hunter Ravyn Kontis in his feline form, then runs with him after they're framed for murder.

Susan showed off her warrior skills fighting at Ravyn's back with the squires and against Ravyn's personal enemies. Ravyn was definitely a formidable, protective warrior in his own right, making them a fierce coupl

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
