Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.

The Time Untime approaches...

Sophia Triad
Renegade "Ren" Waya (Dark-Hunter) and Kateri Avani (Human with the end of world linked to her)

This book is connected with two books:
- Night Embrace (Dark-Hunter #2) where we met Kateri’s cousin, Sunshine Runningwolf.
- Retribution (Dark-Hunter #19) where we met Ren as the best friend of Sundown.

The most interesting part of the story is that it combines Mayan myths and Greek myths.

Ren is the son of the Keetoowah chief Coatl and Sterope, one of the Pleiades and he was raised by the demoness Ravenn

Sherrilyn Kenyon writes such scarred and tortured heroes, which is the reason why I can’t ever get enough of her books. I love this series so much, and Time Untime didn’t disappoint. It grabbed me from the very beginning and kept me invested until the last page.

It was hard for me to read this book without shedding some tears. Ren’s past stomped on my heart and ripped it into tiny pieces. I honestly can’t put into words how bitter his life was. It was beyond my imagination how he could endure all

OK, well just so you know, I'm a HUGE Sherrilyn Kenyon fan, and I've read all of the books in this series thus far. And all I can say is I really wanted to love this book.... but I didn't. I can say that I did like parts of it. There was some really funny banter between the characters. She did bring back a few of my favorites in this book but for only short periods of time.

I thought the main character, Kateri was a bit weak. Not in spirit but in development. I found her frequent visions of the

The only good parts of this book were when Ash and Talon were around.

Other than that, it was as bad as Sundance's book: a weird mixture of Native American, Mayan, and Greek mythology that didn't come together well. Also, the two main characters were not interesting or charming at all.

As I said, Ash's scenes were entertaining enough. He had his hair all buzzed off and it is funny how the Dark Hunters responded to it.

Grrrrr...I had just spent a half an hour on a review and once again lost it! I will write another one frustrating!

Alright, one more time with feeling!!
This 17th installment of the Dark Hunter series was somewhat a disappointment to me. Not because it was badly written; but because there were so many legends and myths told during the course of the story that it just became confusing. If I am being honest, in two weeks time alot of them I won't even remember. There were so many fact

Excerpt from Time Untime:

December 10, 2012

Kateri Avani jerked in her sleep as her dreams tormented her. No longer a woman full grown, she was again a little girl sitting in her grandmother’s house, playing with the dolls her grandmother had made for her and her cousin Sunshine from the corn that grew in the garden out back. Barely twelve, Kateri brushed her small hand over the black cornsilk hair of the male doll.

Her grandmother sat beside her, at the old-fashioned red kitchen table, shelling pe
I miss New Orleans!!! If you're new on the Dark hunter series don't pick this..pick Seize the Night or Dance with the devil hah not that I'm bragging the two books;)

This book is not about the Greek culture, not the Romans, Egyptian or even the Atlantean which I love, its the Author's Culture, the Cherokee(tsalagi) and add some Mayan culture in it since December 21, 2012 plays a significant date:)

I think it gave the book justice of talking about the Chekoree and Mayans for almost half the book si
I think that even for die-hard fans of this series, this book is going to be hard to digest. After initial 100 or so excruciating, dense pages about the Mayan background of the heroine, most of the book -almost until the end- was filled with heroine’s flashbacks of the dreams she had about hero's past. Seriously, something said by the hero would trigger heroine’s flashback and 1 or 2 pages later the dialog continued. Besides the many pages retelling the past through flashbacks, it had very disap ...more
400 plus pages of WTF are they talking about...that pretty much sums up my review. My mother always said that if I don't have anything nice to say, to say nothing at all. I would love to follow her words today with this review, however, I can't (sorry, Mom).

What was the story about? I have no idea. Who is Katera's father? I have no idea. What is the moral of the story? Who knows.

Truly from beginning to end, this book did not make sense to me. There were far too few pages of the beloved Dark Hun

As many of you know I have practically been waiting on pins and needles for this book, It didn't seem like August was going to get here and then I bantered back and forth whether I should get it now or wait. When I found out my favorite character in this universe was going to play a good part in this book. Well you know I jumped and clicked buy.

The first half of the book is so monotonous and boring and the second was just a little better for me.
The whole time I was reading this story I felt like I was listening to a lecture on the college.

**3.5 - 4 stars**

Kateri grew up surrounded by Cherokee legends but she's a scientist and hardly believes any of those stories. Ren grew up as a Keetoowah and made many of those legends. He still mainly lives in that world hardly interacting with humans until the day he has to save Kateri.

Let's just cut to the chase...this book is confusing!! I've read it and it's still hard for me to wrap my head around everything. Obviously, if you've read the series this far, you get the Dark Hunters and thei

This book wasn't as bad as some others in this series but also not one of the best.

One of my biggest complaints - one I already had with Retribution - is the fact that SK adds another pantheon/mythology to the Dark Hunter world. I think this is way too much. It's great that she has Native American blood and wants to honor this but a stand-alone trilogy would have been better in my opinion.

Most of the book felt like ramblings about myths, visions, gods, names, places, flashbacks, more names, plac

I think I just broke my fangirl, ya’ll.

Is it possible for a book to kick so much ass that one's butt is sore by proxy?

It better be, because apocalypses are fun! Well, they are when it’s in a book which takes the 2012 freak-out that was like Y2K: Mayan Edition, and frames it with a mixed-bag of Let’s Save Planet Earth plots.

I’ve been putting this book off for such a long time now, but I refused to read Styxx until I had read this one. I haven’t skipped a book so far in this series and I don’t plan on doing so now. I put this off because of this kind of storyline… about all the Mayan stuff. I just don’t like any of it. I don’t understand the terminology, and I understand the storyline even less. None of it makes any damn sense to me, so I get super bored really quickly.

It's ben a year since I've read a SK book and it feels like I never left... It's all so very familiar, not that that's a bad thing. I used to ADORE Sherrilyn Kenyon. The widening specter of grand scheme storylines really made me feel diconnected to the story... Not to mention the time paradoxes of Niock's series. I don't know why, but this Native American mythology is not really my favorite, but there were things I liked:

Huh??!! I have no idea what happened in this book. Seriously, I understood Metamorphosis and Animal Farm better than this book. I gave the 2 stars only because I enjoyed the first 10 or 11 in the series and it hasn't sunk to Anita Blake awfulness, yet.

However, I need an outline or CliffNotes to follow the crazy mythology in this book. Honestly, I skipped over most of it because it was confusing. I also skimmed the excessive monologues made by the main characters. I don't know something about tr
This is why I keep reading this series. This book was really good and the romance was so sweet! (and no dead wife to whine over!!!)

Of course, Ren had a terribly sad childhood. But at least it did not include relentless rape and abuse. Sad that has become expected in this series.

Kateri was pretty cool, especially for a rock nerd (geologist).

The biggest downfall of the book were the endless breakaways into thought in the middle of a scene. I mean how in the world do you stop mix sex to have a visi

This book surprised me by being more interesting than Retribution, but it still fell flat and useless. Besides Ren's and Kateri's moments and the things that happened between them, nothing new really happens in the DH world. Nick gets the upper hand in a scene with Acheron and he pretty much had the chance to kill Acheron but didn't. Honestly, it would've been better if Acheron had died. He is such a pussy to do ANYTHING that sometimes you wonder why he's even "strong" in the first place. Achero ...more
Part of me is somewhat surprised to see how many freaking books there are in this series, but again, this is Sherrilyn Kenyon we are talking about. This woman doesn’t sleep. She writes. And damn, she still writes good stories.

While TIME UNTIME isn’t exactly my favorite of the series, I still think readers should check it out. The one thing that grips me with SK’s writing is the fact that she writes with such ease. It’s never a chore to read one of her books and regardless of whether it’s a newer

Last book, The Guardian, Miss Kenyon shifted her focus from Greek myth to Cherokee. Now she continues that story here, when the prophecy mentioned last time comes to pass. The calendars need to be reset to keep evil creatures locked away from Earth.

Time Untime is sort-of a companion piece to Retribution. If you enjoyed that one, you'll probably like this one. The thing is, Retribution was one of my least favorite books in the Dark Hunter series. I think I have reached maximum capacity on large-scale additional mythology in this already complicated universe. I felt very disconnected to the Native American elements featured so heavily in that book and I knew that same thread would continue into this one.

Time Untime is a mix between Greek Mythology and Native American forklore. As a Native American myself I was excited to explore just how Sherrilyn Kenyon was planning to pull this off intertwining the two amongst each other. I'm ashamed to say that I often felt detached from the story and the world building was a bit overwhelming at times. This book had m

“Life is messy, Ren. It's not easy and it's definitely not for the timid. Everyone has a past. Things that stab them right between the eyes. Old grudges. Old shame. Regrets that steal your sleep and leave you awake until you fear for your own sanity. Betrayals that make your soul scream so loud you wonder why no one else hears it. In the end, we are all alone in that private hell. But life isn't about learning to forgive those who have hurt you or forgetting the past. It's about learning to forgive yourself for being human and making mistakes. Yes, people disappoint us all the time. But the harshest lessons come when we disappoint ourselves. When we put our trust and our hearts into the hands of the wrong person and they do us wrong. And while we may hate them for what they did, the one we hate most is ourself for allowing them into our private circle. How could I have been so stupid? How could I let them deceive me? We all go through that. It's humanity's brotherhood of misery.” 67 likes
