I have been told by so many that I would LOVE this author + that the earlier books in this series are gold... so I had to check it out. Here's my verdict:
1. Don't like this world. It just doesn't make sense to me. To be in this "dark hunters" club you have to have had such a F'ed up life/betrayed/etc. that when you die you catch the goddesses notice and she turns you into a creature of the night - soulless + unable to view sun + under contract to fight bad guys forevers.
2. To get your life back you must find true love. Apparently, in this author's mind, sex is a cure-all. (eww)
3. Once your soul is back to you, you're no longer a dark hunter.

Ok... so you find happiness + get your soul back. Great. But now? You're NOT a dark hunter. Which is fine I guess... except... won't this totally deplete the "good guys" to the point that the bad soul sucker guys will eventually win if this series goes on??? Plus doesn't it make things predictable/boring if every book is going to be this way?

Verdict: going to try a few more before I make final call...

Marion Yes the books do eventually get predictable because they all follow the same love redemption storyline. Which is why I eventually stopped reading them. They were entertaining at first though.
