Death, devils, pirates, princes, demons, love and friendship. All that and there was still some room for smexy time ! You know SK knows how to smex her characters right ! Just thinking about it all hot and bothered. Somebody grab me a fan it's hot in here. If you love her other series you'll love this one.
Man that was a fun ride. I can't tell you anything without ruining the story. it does pick up just after book 1 so go read that one first. it would also ...more
I should point out straight off that I’m a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon and I’m totally biased when it comes to her books. Yes, book dragons, if it’s her books (or Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb), prepare yourself to be mowed over by unrestrained gushiness.
That said, I went into this book full of expectations. And you know what they say about expectations? The bigger they are, the harder the fall.
It was great to see the characters from Deadmen Walking, their interactions with each other, the fast-paced a ...more
This was a great second installment of the Pirate series Deadman's Cross by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Fans of the dark h ...more
It's hard to describe exactly what's going on in this book. It's non-stop action and adventure on the high seas. But it started a bit slow for me and ends with a cliffhanger. Still I would recommend to Sherrilyn Kenyon fans with a warning. ...more
SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED!
There is one thing that is definitely a misconception - you cannot read this series as a standalone. I mean, technically you can, but you are missing so much of the bigger picture. There are so many characters and so many unfinished plots (Acheron's parentage, Savitar, Thorn, Jaden, Primals, Malachai, who is related to whom, etc.). I just don't know how anyone could pick this series with "I want to read a book about pirates" in mind.
I loved Cameron and Kal ...more
Enjoyed the next book in the series. Nice to see the Deadmen again. Happy to see Thorn, Savitar, Ash, and Simi as well. Happy that Cameron and Kalder were able to tell each other their feelings and get together. Congratulations to Mara and Cameron. Hope they get Mara and Valynda back.
Can't wait to read At Death's Door!!!
There is some family drama/baggage. Some ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Death Doesn't Bargain ends not long after Deadmen Walking. In the beginning the crew is trying to find a way to save Kalder from what happened to him in that first book. That was one of the things from book one that bothered me. I hated his fate in that book. He chose it and I knew then that something was brewing between him and Cameron Jack. I kn...more
I do love these books, but man this is a complicated world! Keeping up with who is what and what is who, etc, I need a ‘bible’ to be able to reference while reading. And what is the time frame? Sometimes I hear the characters use words that I assume wouldn’t make sense or would not have ‘existed’ in what I assumed the time is for these books.
Note: I also listened to a good portion of this on audible. I really enjoyed the narrator but will say ...more
This book was so much better for me. It connected more with the other books in the Dark Hunter universe. Like we've come to expect from Kenyon the hero had a bad past, one where his family wasn't a safe place and he has since created his own and through the love o ...more
Throw in Ash and Savitar along with the characters from the first book and the gangs all here. Taking place in pirate times, the fant ...more
I won't recap the story, the synopsis will more than do it's job.
What I will do is RAVE about this incredible world!
Ms. Kenyon has put in an incredible amount of detail that must have taken months to research. It's not just about the period the story is staged in. The language and phrasing is so cool! There is just no other way to describe it!
Again, Ms. Kenyon has given us brutal information about the crossover characters that has flabbergasted me. I plan on rereading ...more
This book FINALLY focuses on Cameron, and gives her a new love interest, Kalder! I appreciate the fact that these novels actually focus on one couple at a time, as we learn their backstories and they learn each other. It helps me to connect with the characters even more and learn t ...more
Ok that being said, I loved this story.
