In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow:

Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.

But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it's my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing c

There is a larger plot and it obviously is gonna have spoilers for earlier ones but I can't see why it wouldn't be enjoyable.

In saying that personally I'd start from the start cause it's just really good. I did it out of order simply by mistake.(less)

This book is the story of Alexion (the boy), and Danger (the girl). That's right, Danger is her first name! That's just not right!

Everyone knows that Danger is a middle name, not a first name!

Alexion lives with Ash in his weird-ass castle in another dimension as his butler/secretary. But, it seems there may be a little more going on than that since he is also known as Simi's "other father".
"I'm Acheron's Squire." it was kind of true. Okay, not really. It was a lie, but Alexion had no intention

'"I promise, Danger. I won't let you be alone."'

Just as the rest of the Dark-Hunter novels, Sins of the Night hooked me just as quickly! While I did miss the old gang in New Orleans, I still loved this one. It was really interesting getting to know more about Ash, the Alexion and the demons. I can definitely say some quite interesting things are going on in this one...

I truly loved Alexion with Danger. They both needed to find that one person to be able to put their trust in a

This is another compelling and entertaining book in Dark-Hunter series! It had me hooked from the very start.

The romance in this story is not as good as the previous one. Although I felt no chemistry between Alexion and Danger, it wasn’t important because the author kept me busy concentrating mostly on the Dark-Hunters and the Daimons instead. Moreover, the story was so intense and exciting that it pulled me into this story completely.

After reading 6 books in this series, Acheron has never stopp

This is where Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series jumps the shark, in my opinion. This is NOT a romance novel, instead, is a book that expands on and expounds Kenyon's world and Kenyon's mythos. Boring, and not what I wanted.

Alexion (real name: Ias) is a ... well, I'm not exactly sure what he is. A very powerful being that is second only to the gods. He is Ash's right hand and it is his job to execute Dark-Hunters who turn against Ash and start killing humans.

He has no personality. Except being horny

I found this book somewhat interesting with regards to the overall storyline, but I felt no connection to the MCs or even between them. I was really turned off by the hero's desire to get laid at all costs and just felt the heroine was serving his purpose. I know they developed something more, but I never felt it.

I don't think much was revealed in this one, but learned a little.

Loved Xirena. She and Simi will be hilarious in future books.

Book 8 in the Dark Hunter series gives us a break from New Orleans and all of the drama that goes down in that city. Instead, we are in Mississippi with a much smaller cast of characters than in previous books.

Alexion is our hero, and he also happens to be Acheron’s right-hand-man (except he’s not really a man, he’s an ‘other’ – not going to be spoilery here, read it and find out!). Anyway, Alexion is sent in as judge, jury and executioner for a bunch of Dark Hunters that have gone rogue. He me

OMG! Kenyon had me scared for a bit with this one! I couldn’t believe the plot twists and turns that popped up throughout. I definitely could have never imagined it but the entire plot came together seamlessly. She had me both laughing and crying throughout. At the same time, she continues to build her world and the mythology surrounding it, allowing everything to coalesce into something that you can picture yourself walking through.

The lead couple in this novel was definitely unexpected. I love

Her name is Danger and she is a female Dark Hunter. She used to live a life of sin when she first became a Dark Hunter, but now, her suspicious eyes land on Alexion, an unexplainable new pawn in this deadly game. All Danger knows is that Alexion is a major threat to her and her friends. It’s very likely that he has been sent to execute them, but despite this threat, there’s this inexplicable pull that lures her closer and closer to him. Will he strike or will he succumb

Horrible. Absolutely horrible. Maybe my opinion is skewed because I read this moments after finishing Tabitha's book, and Danger was another "I kick ass for a living" chicks - too similar. I now prefer Tabitha to Danger, wow.

Danger: She's a myopic pain. Alexion arrives & says he's here from Ash to save the DH's and what does Danger do...she stabs him before speaking to him and then for 75% of the book rants about her loyalty to her fellow DH's over everyone else. She's like a child who plug

When I first read that Sins of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon was about Alexion, I thought “who?” Thanks to my ‘Book Brain Fart Syndrome’, I couldn’t place him right away. But once I started reading it I thought “Oooooh, that guy!” I must say that at first, I found it a little odd that this next Dark-Hunter book was about Acheron’s assassin/savior dude. I mean, with all those Dark-Hunters that we’ve only just met, there were so many other possibil

Cada vez mais se justifica o título de rainha do paranormal de Sherrilyn Kenyon. A cada livro que passa consegue sempre surpreender-nos e trazer-nos uma nova história original repleta de emoção.

Em Pecados na Noite conhecemos Alexion, o braço direiro de Acheron, que se vê deparado com a missão de julgar os Predadores da Noite que conspiram contra Acheron. Mas depois de tanto tempo afastado de qualquer contacto humano, Alexion não tem problemas em discernir sem sentimentalismos quem é que tem boas
I'm torn on this book. I like that we get to see another side of Ash and that Alexion is not your typical Dark-Hunter but I wasn't as engaged with this book as I had been with previous installments in the series. Alexion's story is rough and I wanted him to have his happy ending, don't get me wrong, but I never got that punch to the gut feeling that the other books gave me.

That said, I do think we learn some interesting things about the overall world here. However, you have to wade through the l

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm not sure where to start w/ this one.

I didn't feel the connection w/ this book like I have w/ the others and that's a first.

I was confused as to what Alexion REALLY was and it was never told to us. I know he's "other" but WHAT exactly? What was Danger at the end?

What I liked about this book was more story on Ash and Simi, that's always a plus but the rest of the book was just "ok" w/ me.

This book felt so different then the rest of the books. Almost like all the previous books

I’m not satisfied with this book. Sins of the Night is a mediocre installment of the Dark-Hunter series, both in storyline, characters, and style. It is not bad, but not good enough for me either.

The story starts good. Given a paradoxical situation and a man, or actually a being, without equal, that makes you expect something peculiar.
Sadly, it becomes boring. The situation is revealed to be an ordinary rebellion, the latest attempt to win over Acheron.

The story is of full of repetitions. Not on

I have to admit that Danger and Alexions story was not my favorite.

For starters there was relatively no action and what there was, was very brief.

I missed the interaction from the other dark hunters from New Orleans and although we got a little more snippets about Ash, he really had little to do with the story.

And was it just me or did the hero and heroine pronounce here love for each other after like 2 days? That is just not cool.

Danger was cool. Being the first female dark hunter to have a bo

This was not my favorite of the Dark-Hunters series, but I still enjoyed it. It was very fast paced, none of it dragged and was filled with lots of action. The end was pretty predictable too. So, even though this one wasn't one of the best ones that I've read, it still is a great series that anyone interested in paranormal-romance should read!

One thing that bothered me while reading this book was an error in the writing. It was stated that Alexion, the hero, could not taste food/flavors, yet he

I love Acheron, he can’t help but spoil Simi, it’s so sweet, a demon with a shopping addiction. I didn’t much care for the female lead in this one, Dangereuse, I just couldn’t get into the character and connect with her. Acheron is in the line-of fire in this with Stryker a daimon/god, out to turn the Dark-Hunter’s against him and destroy him.

I didn't like this book at all,it took me 2days to finally finish it! The only reason why I gave it a 2star was just because I liked the ending with Simi's surprise guest,but that's about it.I'd really rather just stick to the Dark Hunter men who are more intriguing and bring out the spark in these books.So, no this book was not my favorite & I hope not to run into another one of these stories.

Sins of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Seventh in the Dark-Hunter series

4.25 stars

Alexion is a man, but he’s not human and he’s not a Dark-Hunter either. What is Alexion? Well Alexion is the pretty much Acheron’s right hand man when it comes to keeping DHs in line. When the Dark-Hunters turn Rogue, Acheron sends him to be the judge, jury, and executioner. Alexion can’t feel anything and lacks all emotion. At least he thought he did until he met Danger. Dangereuse St. Richard AKA Danger is a Dark-H

Alexion has spent centuries working as Acheron's executioner, it is his job to make sure the Dark-Hunters don't step out of line and he is the one who carries out the punishment for any of them who fail to follow their code. He is forced to live separate to the others, unable to spend long in the human realm and wary of making friends that he may be forced to judge in the future. In fact to most of the Dark-Hunters he is just a myth - the ones who do see him rarely live to tell the tale. Now he ...more
