** spoiler alert ** Loved this book!! Devil May Cry has to be one of my Fave's in this series so far.
Sin and Kat are Fantastic together, Sin is Hot Sexy and an ex fertility God what else is there to say.... but great Shower scence's ladies!!!
I also Love that Katra can hold her own and take Bs from Sin but she can give it back to him. They both have this way with each other it is perfect..Plus we also get to see more of Ash and learn a little but more about him too..I love him in this book when he finds out that kat is his daughter *sniffs* it is so lovely!!
I couldn't put this book down, I never got board reading it and there is so much to learn from this Dark Hunter book...
I laughed at so many part's and i cried at so many part's if you haven't read this one it is a MUST read!!

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“With my background and genetic makeup,buddy, you're lucky I'm as normal as I am.
(Katra Agrotera)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“She didn't understand that. "How can anyone be afraid of love?"
"How can they not?" His face was completely aghast. "When you love someone... truly love them, friend or lover, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt—you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it's crippling—like having your heart carved out. It leaves you naked and exposed, wondering what you did to make them want to hurt you so badly when all you did was love them. What is so wrong with you that no one can keep faith with you? That no one can love you? To have it happen once is bad enough... but to have it repeated? Who in their right mind would not be terrified of that?”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Kat laughed. 'Who wants to live forever?'
Kish put his hand up. 'For the record, I do.'
Sin scowled at him. 'Then why do you irritate me so often?'
Suicidal tendencies are inherent in my species?”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“We need to gather everyone we can.
Damien scoffed. Uh, boss, hate to be a pall, but I think everyone we can gather is currently in this room.
Sin paused to look at Simi, Xirena, Damien, Kat, Kish, and Xypher. It was a pitiful number of defenders. But it was all the world had. In that case, we need to seriously arm ourselves.
Damien crossed himself. Hail Mary, full of grace-
What are you doing? Kish asked. You're not Catholic.
Yeah but I'm feeling really religious all of a sudden and it seemed like a good idea.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Any game plan? Xypher asked Sin.
Don't die.
I like it. Simple, bold. Impossible. Works for me.
Kat scoffed at his sarcasm. What are you bitching about, Xypher? You're already dead.
He laughed. You know, for once, it's good to be me.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“I’m sure he just wanted to touch a piece of home. Hell, whatever artifact he took probably belonged to him or some member of his family. I’m not going to kill anyone because he was homesick, Artie – kind of like killing someone when he’s on the can. It’s just wrong. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“You’re the one who made the bargain with Apollymis that I have to live with. Personally, it irks the shit out of me to be traded like some Yu-Gi-Oh! card you got tired of having around the house. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“The point is, Sin is now going to try to overthrow me again and take my place. Do you know what that means? (Artemis)
There will be much rejoicing? (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Then you’re going to stay in that net until eternity comes to pass. (Sin)
Well, that’s really intelligent, isn’t it? What are you going to do? Put drinks on me or just use me as a conversation piece whenever friends come over? And let’s not even think about what’s going to happen when I need to use the restroom, shall we? I hope you have a standing order at Sofa Express. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Give me my powers back, Artemis, or I’ll take your daughter’s life. (Sin)
Damn boy, you have an unholy gift for pissing off people. Why don’t you tell her that dress makes her look fat while you’re at it? (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Yeah, you were doing a real bang-up job of it. I particularly liked the way you were bruising his fists with your face. A few minutes more and I’m sure your heart would have been on the attack...after it was ripped from your chest. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“I was the Sumerian god of fertility. You know what that means, don’t you? (Sin)
You have a lot of penis envy over the other fertility gods? Don’t worry. I won’t tell the other gods about your small penis problem. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“You have to stay here. (Kat)
Bullshit. (Sin)
No, no shit here. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“My son has few friends and even fewer who know him for what he is. So long as you protect him, you live. Sumerian or not. But if you prove false in anything you’ve said here today, I will bring a wrath down on you so sever that you will spend eternity trying to dig out your own brains to alleviate the pain of it. (Apollymi)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“My father is the harbinger of death and destruction. My grandmother the Great Destroyer. My mother is the goddess of the hunt. I think I’ll be okay. (Kat)
Yeah, you do have the history of absolute terror and cruelty in your veins. (Sin)
Remember that if you ever come between me and my chocolate bar. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Whoa, what is this? Battle of the Sarcastic and Pissed? Should I make popcorn? Forget American Idol, man. This is much more entertaining. (Kish)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Simi? You got some free time? (Kat)
Of course I do. You know akri on Olympus with that heifer-goddess I want to eat, but he won’t let the Simi have no dinner. So why you calling me, little akra-kitty? (Simi)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“I find that hard to believe. Nothing comes free in this world. Ever. (Sin)
Then get up and get dressed. There’s the door. I’m sure you know how to use it. It’s a really simple process. You put one foot in front of the other, turn the knob, and keep going. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Stop calling your akri your daddy. It makes my wings droop. (Xirena)
My akri is my daddy. He said so and it is so, so your wings can droop all they want, ‘cause it won’t change anything! (Simi)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“You don’t want the Simi to watch over the bitch-goddess, do you? ‘Cause no offense, akri, that would just be wrong, and I love you, but that’s more love than the Simi has for anything. Even Diamonique. (Simi)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“I don’t even know what to say to you. (Acheron)
Me, either. I guess we’ll just stand here and cry at each other, huh? (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“It’s true, and I was really hideous as a preteen. Tall and gawky. I used to bump my head into everything. Still do sometimes. (Kat)
You are my daughter. (Acheron)
Sure I am, I can’t imagine you ever being uncoordinated. (Kat)
Oh, I assure you I’ve nailed quite a few signs with my forehead. It’s a wonder ‘Exit’ isn’t permanently imprinted right between my eyes. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Oh, you’re going to die all right. All of you. And for what you’ve done to my brother you will suffer unimaginably! (Kessar)
Yada, yada, yada. Am I the only one who gets sick of the bad-guy monologue? ‘Ooo, I’m the big evil. I’m going to kill you all. Just wait while I bore you to tears with my egomaniacal bullshit. I’m just a demon windbag who likes to hear himself speak and I’m trying to intimidate you.' (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“You know the incredible thing about hearts is their unbelievable capacity for forgiveness. You’d be amazed what people will overlook when they love someone. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Trust me, baby. Everyone wants someone they can hold and love. Someone who will be there to help pick up the pieces when everything falls apart. Sin is no different from anyone else. If you have any care for Sin at all, don’t leave him in the darkness. It’s not fair to show someone the sun and then banish him from it. Even the devil may cry when looks around hell and realizes that he’s there alone. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“And I was keeping breakfast warm for you. Sin told me he’d have my balls if I didn’t take care of you. Personally, I like my balls attached to my body, so I intend to take really good care of you in a purely platonic way. (Kish)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“For the record, this isn’t a male/female thing. It’s a people thing. You talk about men being cold...you should see women from my standpoint. We’re talking the Arctic tundra would be warmer. Believe me, you don’t want to know my vantage point on your gender. As a man, if I grabbed your breasts, I’d be arrested. Any idea how many women have felt free to grab my crotch at will? (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“What do you do when Mom leaves you alone like this? (Kat)
I write romance novels. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“So what do you do? Really? (Kat)
Nothing. Really. It’s boring as hell. Artemis won’t allow me to bring anything here with me. No guitar. No Cartoon Network. Occasionally, I sneak a book in just to watch her wig out when she finds it. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Here’s an example. When I first met Nick Gautier it was fated that he was to get married at age thirty and have a dozen kids. As our friendship grew, I lost the ability to see how his future would play out. Then in one moment of anger, I changed his destiny by telling him he should kill himself. I didn’t mean it, but as a god of fate, such proclamations when made by me are law. Fate realigned the circumstances around him that would lead him to make a decision to take his own life. The woman he was to marry ended up dead in her store. His mother’s life was taken by a Daimon and Nick shot himself at her feet. My free will would have been to not lash out at him. Instead I did. His free will would have been to seek revenge as a human against a Daimon and not kill himself. But because of who I am, my proclamation that he kill himself outweighed his will and he didn’t really have any choice. I took his free will and I cost him everyone who was close to him. (Acheron)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Are we going to debate philosophy or should I just kiss and make up with the demon now? Let it get a good shot at your throat so it can rip it out? (Xypher)
Put him down mercifully. (Kat)
Yes, Queenie. I’ll make sure and use a cushioned blade. (Xypher)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“It’s been a full week since she left and all you’ve done is sulk like a dying cow. (Kish)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“You look pretty unscarred. (Sin)
Boy, you better be glad you’re stunning when you’re naked or I’d skin you for that. I’ve been through hell this week because of you. Do you think I wanted to come crawling back here only to have you tell me to get lost again? I know it’s hard for you to believe, but I do have my pride, and you’ve kicked it for the last time. (Kat)
You missed me? (Sin)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“We’re looking for anything to do with the Rod of Time. (Sin)
Rod of Time, Forsaken Moon, Tablet of Destiny…you Sumerians really liked your hokey terms, huh? (Kat)
They didn’t exactly ask my opinion before they named them. (Sin)
Good, ‘cause my estimation of your intellect would be seriously scarred if they had. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Get your butt over there and start reading before I beat you with my Rod of Time. (Sin)
I can think of much better things to do with your rod than beat me, baby. (Kat)
Aww, gawd, we’ve degenerated into really bad punage. I yield. Save me before my IQ points are damaged. (Sin)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Fine, you fun-vampire. I’ll take my scroll over here and play by myself. (Kat)
Fun-vampire? What is that? (Sin)
That would be you sucking all the fun out of life. (Kat)
You have the most interesting terms for things. (Sin)
Yes, but notice mine are creative, unlike the so stellarly named Rod of Time. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“How long till our powers are back? (Kat)
A few hours according to last time. (Sin)
Sweet, and we have how long till the bitches awake? (Kat)
Less than two. (Sin)
Can you say screwed, boys and girls? Yes, I thought you could. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Please tell me the cave just had a little indigestion. (Kat)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Oh, poo, we can’t let the heifer-goddess die. Akri will die too if he can’t eat from her. C’mon, Xirena, you gots to help the Simi protect the bitch-goddess. (Simi)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Looks like the safest spot here for a human who doesn’t want to get eaten. (Kish)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Seal the door behind us. (Acheron)
Um, not to be argumentative or anything, but didn’t we have to fight to get that opened? (Kish)
Well, if you want to leave it open and let all the demons in – (Female Dolophonos)
Close it, please. (Kish)
I somehow thought you’d agree. (Female Dolophonos)”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry

Leah Nice review, Ang. I'm glad you loved it ;P


UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish I loved this book. It was my first DH read.


Leah I love this one, too, Dhes. It wasn't one of my first, but it was one of the ones I was most looking forward to after I started the series.


UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish I hadn't gotten in touch with my inner OCDness yet, so it didn't bother me to read it out of order and since the library had it, hey, I figured I'd go for it. But now... whoa... OCD kicked in and was quickly joined by his alpha cousin, MRBIOs (Must Read Book In Order syndrome).


Leah I have not read this series in order either. I mean, if I had like a couple that went generally one after the other, then I would do that, but with this series, my OCD and MRBIOs still has yet to kick in.


♡♥Ang ♥♡ I wanna read it in order :(
But i couldn't my library didnt have them all.. But on the bright side i am doing a book order this week and im buying the whole series :) YAY
And thanks so much you guys, i only try and write what i loved!! And i loved this book so much!! Sin and Kat were awesome...


Leah Oh, yay! I'm glad you are buying the whole series, LOL.
Yeah, Ang, they really are awesome


♡♥Ang ♥♡ yeah me too :)


Leah LOL ;P

Leah RNDo, the series is worth reading all the way through. There are some that are not so good, but there are some that are terrific. Take Acheron for example. So. Worth. It.

And Simi. Ohhhh, the Simi. She is such a cutie. She makes me laugh so much. I love when she and her sister come in after Kat and Sin had sex and her sister is like "Ew, naked people!
