In this wonderful sequel to A Touch of Greek Ariadne has finally met the one. After a major heart break the previous year from her ex-fiancee she's finally opened her heart and her bed to the ultra sexy Dio. When he doesn't call her the next day she's distraught..of course. Wanting to confront the loser she finds the ass a the bar flirting with a couple of bimbo's and what does he do when he see's her???You guessed it...he dumps her! Once leaving the bar later on that night she finds the cad in the alley behind the bar...all beat up and having no memory of who he is and how he got there. She she decides to tell him she's his fiancee!! Yeah...No kidding...LOL!! And let the good times ROLL!!!
Dionysus or Dio, is a philanderer....a complete womanizer. He has a one-nigh-stand rule....once he scores with a chick he dumps her. For two weeks now he's been putting the moves on Ariadne....and tonight is the night it finally pays off. He's never spent this much time trying to get a woman in his bed and he's quite put off by it. After his one night of bliss with the lovely Ari he starts getting these feelings that he's quite unfamiliar with. He's not sure one night will ever be enough for him with this woman and it scares the shit out of him so he dumps her!
Hera....wife of Zeus and stepmpother to Dio saw what Dio did to the poor Ariadne and is fed up with his philandering ways. In her eyes...he's just like his father and decides to teach him a lesson. So she wipes his memory and helps Ari execute her plan to finally destroy the God of wine and ecsatcy and give him a taste of his own medicine.
I loved loved loved this addition to the Out of Olympus series! I laughed sooooooo much!! Ari really taught Dio a lesson. He really deserved it cuz he was a complete ass!! You really have to read it to know what Im talking about..dont wanna spoil anything. But when Ari told Dio that they were abstaining from sex til marriage and that his drinking wine was the cause I chuckled! But when the poor Dio actually went to an AA meeting just so he could finally get in her good graces...I nearly fell of the BED!!! Im sorry...It was hilarious to me:)))
Anyhoo....Please go read this book!! I enjoyed it sooo much!! I really missed Tina's stories and reading this reminded me of why she's one of my favorites!! (less)

To kill Sundown Brady...she's always believed that he was the one who murdered her parents. Since thier death, she's been raised by Apolites( Beings made by Apolo, who killed his mistress and son....so in turn he cursed them all to die on their 27th Birthday). So they've poisoned her mind into thinking that all Dark Hunters are to bad and they need to be destroyed. Unfortunately, she kills the wrong person...thinking he is a Dark Hunter and sets off the Apocolpse.
William Jessup "Sundown" Brady, was a gunslinger and hitman...an outlaw. Now that he's found his one true love...Matilda. He's decided to stop all his wicked ways and become a respectable man, so he sells all his guns and goes off to marry Matilda and start a new life. Unfortunatley for Jess, his best friend Bart see's it as his opportunity to kill Jess and take the large bounty on his head. Jess vows that he will have his revenge on Bart and he gives his soul to Artemis...now he's a Dark Hunter.
In present day, Jess has been transfered to Las Vegas. He's been alerted that theres a human leading a band of Daimons, knocking off Dark Hunters. Once he runs into them he's surprised that its Abby. He thought she was dead. And even more confusing than the fact that she's the one leading the Daimons...is that she's trying to kill him and she's got some supernatural strength. He takes her down and wisks her away back to his home, when he finds out that Abby has killed someone she shouldn't have and has started the Apocolpse. Now he had to protect her from some angry Gods from another Pantheon, who wants her dead!
It was really good to be back with the DH crew!! I loved everything about this one. Now there's a new Pantheon in the mix and I loved it. Can't wait to see how all of it will tie into the other things that are going on in this world. Sherrilyn Kenyon is amazing and can do no wrong IMHO!!
If I could give it more I would!! I LOVED it! This one had the essence of previous DH novels! I was quite dissapointed in No Mercy (Dark-Hunter, #19)...it just didnt have the same feel to me! But Retribution did not dissapoint! All I can say is wish I we coulda found out whats going on with Jaden and with Nick and The Bitch-Goddess....but Im willing to be patient! This contribution left me well satisfied and anxious to find out more about the Guardians and the Native American tie into all of this! Sherrilyn Kenyon has this knack for making you fall in love with the characters. I can honestly say that I fell in love with this series all over again. Had no incling that it was even possible!! GOD....I LOVE The Dark Hunters Series!!!!!!!!!!!(less)

He's been released from his constant torture so that he can retrieve the key to Olympus from Solin. Its said that he's the only Dream-Hunter who knows were the key is. If Noir gets his hands on the key, he and his Azura will rule the world. Time is runing out for Seth....if Solin doesn't break soon, he will go back to the pits and be tortured for all eternity.
Lydia, Were-Hunter and Dream-Hunter, has gone to Azmodea to retrieve Solin from Noir's evil cluthes. When she finally gets there, she's kidnapped by Seth and gives Solin 3 days to retrieve the key or Lydia dies.
How is it that after all of the DH books...this is my favorite?? Because SK is the author thats why!!! Each on of these books gets better and better. You would think since this is like the 21st book in the DH world that by now they would get boring...but no! They just keep getting better!
Lydia was a fierce warrior...being raised by Solin, she would have to be. But I loved the fact that she stood her ground with the scary ass Seth. And poor Seth....he was tortured by his family and everyone he has ever known for 4500 years. I thought Acheron had it bad but I think Seth has him pretty darn beat.
I just LOVED this next book in the series...can't wait to find out what the hell is going on with the Jaden/Jared fiasco...Im on tender hooks now.....I was excited to see some Jaden in this one...
"He's under attack. Are you sure we can't help him?"
Jaden sent her a mocking stare. " Sure lets go get him pinned to Noir's wall for a week, shall we? Im quite certain that will thrill him to no end, and make make us all feel better that you care so much."
'"You don't have to be so sarcastic."
"I can't help it. I sucked sarcasm straight from my mothers breast."
I just love him....
All in all, This was a super winner to me! It really reminded me of why I fell in love with the series in the first place!(less)
