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

'"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 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
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

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

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

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

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
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

Book status: It's complicated.

Some novels you freakout-fangirl-flail over, some you want to violently cram into a paper shredder and some...some you don't know how the frack you feel. This book hella-epically falls under that third category. Okay, so, quick run down, Sins of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon; a paranormal urban fan

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. Alexion is a Shade sent to protect Danger with some pretty nifty tricks, like being able to warm up his body temperature just my thinking it and the abili ...more
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

My opinion is a double one on this book.

I liked a lot all the new information about the "general plot" on the series, mainly those informations related with Acheron that is my favorite character in all series.

But I must confess that I was truly disappointed with the love story.
When Alexion goes to earth and he starts to feel attracted to Danger, there's nothing "special" about her that support the change in him, or point out what both of them sow in one another that makes a nine thousand year ol

Wha Wha... first book involving a female dark-hunter!


We are taken away from New Orleans and all the goings on there and thrust into Mississippi to an uprising that occurs. We are introduced to Alexion, Acheron's right hand man and enforcer extraordinaire. There he meets Danger and we see the book unfold.

I liked this one because the ending was not the typical dark-hunter gets soul back because the love of their life wins it for them.

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.

Oh My gosh i thought that I wouldn't like this one as much as i loved the others,But i ended up Loving like 10 pages into the story.. Alex was amazing sweet kind and sexy as hell!! and Danger what a name,she was awesome i loved that she was the Dark Hunter in this one what a fantastic read i just loved Sins of the Night..Another Fantastic book in the Dark Hunter Series!!

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

Alexion “Ias” is Acheron's right-hand man and enforcer. When Dark-Hunters step out of line, Alexion is sent in to kill them. He wants to intervene to save an old friend of his from making a terrible mistake and if there is no chance to save him then he will carry out his orders.

I’ve read the first books in the series many months ago and now I thought that it was time to keep reading. At the beginning, I had some difficulties with the world-building but soon I found my way into the story again. To be honest, it wasn’t the best book in this series. I found it kind of predictable.

The story is a little different in this book, because the main male character is not a typical Dark-Hunter. Alexion was a very interesting character and I was glad to read about him. I really lik
I was a little worried coming into this book, as, apart from one very brief mention of Alexion in the previous book, we hadn't been introduced to either of these characters. Yes, with book 5, we hadn't seen much of Wulf, and I can't remember if he was ever actually physically present in New Orleans, but we'd heard about him, and seen scenes with him, such as the scene when Talon was trying to get coffee, so we knew him, at least to some extent. With this book, we weren't in the regular setting ( ...more
Sins of the Night
3 Stars

The Dark-Hunters in Mississippi are being led astray and Dangereuse St. Richard calls Acheron for help. Ash sends in his right hand man, Alexion, who is tasked with investigating, judging and, if necessary, executing wayward Dark Hunters. Danger is wary of Alexion's intentions but the two must work together if they are to thwart the nefarious scheme of a powerful enemy.


The story moves away from the established group of Dark Hunters in New Orleans and readers
The Window Seat
I had hoped to skip over this book in a time crunch, in order to get to Ash's book sooner and get the books I needed read first. But I didn't and I am very glad that I read it. It is a pivotal part of the Dark Hunter mystery that is Ash.

Alexion is Ash's right hand man. Though Ash is barely in his book, we finally get into the head of someone who actually knows who and what Ash is. Because of that, we learn more about Ash in his absence then we ever do when he is present. Alexion is one of the or

In the world 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.

So after reading Talon and Sunshine’s stories in Night Embrace, I became obsessed with this series. But this one was different from other Dark Hunter books. And just like the rest of the Dark-Hunters, Sins of the Night got me hooked from the very start.

Like I’ve said this one was different. In this book, we've met the first Dark Huntress named D
