Amanda Devereaux has a crazy family. Her mother and older siblings are witches and psychics, and her twin sister is a vampire hunter. All Amanda wants is a quiet, normal life. Only when she finds herself the target of an attack meant for her twin, she wakes to find herself handcuffed to a sexy, blond stranger. He is Kyrian of Thrace. And while Amanda's first thought is that this might be another of her sister's attempts at extreme match-making, it soon becomes clear that Kyrian is not boyfriend material. For Kyrian is a Dark-Hunter: an immortal warrior who has traded his soul for one moment of vengeance upon his enemies. Kyrian spends his eternal days hunting the vampires and daimons that prey upon mankind. He is currently on the hunt for a very old and deadly daimon named Desiderius who has deemed it sport to handcuff Kyrian to a human while he hunts him. Now Kyrian and Amanda must find a way to break their bond before they give into their dangerous attraction to one another. Or Desiderius kills them both.… (mere)

An Adult Paranormal Romance That Had Me Gripped!

I am kicking myself; why haven't I ever read this series before?! I love Ms Kenyon's writing style; the prose she uses, the pace of her plots, the twists & turns and how she concludes all the various aspects of her tales while still leaving some tantalising threads that lure you to keep reading.

When reading paranormal romance, I need my main female character to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and have plenty of gumption; Amanda certainly had all of these traits and more. She was a beautiful soul, empathetic, loving and had a wonderful wit. Kyrian was a male that ticked all my boxes too; he was damaged, loyal to a fault, had depth and deserved the love that Amanda had for him.

Due to the explicit sexual content and graphic violence, I would recommend this book to adults who are not offended by scenes of this nature who enjoy romance stories about the complexities of relationships, about trust, loyalty and betrayal and of course, insurmountable odds and soul saving love.

I have already bought the next tow books in this series and can't wait to read more. ( )

this was a really good book, but it seemed a little drawn out I don't know if it was my surrounding life that made it seem to be drawn out, but I quite nenjoyed it immensely. ( )

Oh wow this book was so terrible! Absolutely nothing mattered at all unless it was related to the hero and heroine's pantsfeelings for each other. Character consistency? Psychological realism? Worldbuilding? Anybody's beliefs or motivations about anything? All up for grabs to create pantsfeelingsy moments.

My favorite was probably when the heroine psychically dropped into the hero's dreams and, in his body, experienced firsthand his memories of having sex with his previous wife (wtf!) and then a month of agonizing torture. This torture is an experience that has, quite reasonably, traumatized him so deeply that just being tied down makes him dissolve into total freakout. Our heroine's reaction to having a first-hand experience of intense PTSD-inducing torture is to... feel super sad for him and want to bone him. And that's all. No residual trauma (or icky feelings from experiencing him boning somebody else) at all.

Also she cures his PTSD by tying him down with scarves and blowing him. No lie. ( )

I'm glad I read Ash's book prior this one. It probably changed my reaction to his appearances and the whole origins of the Dark Hunters thing. More depth, maybe; not that this series or book is more deep than the usual PNR books.

Which isn't a criticism. Just that it is fairly typical of the genre that each book centers on a couple, pretty much if not completely outright fated mates. In this one, it was immortal-centuries-old-Kyrian-Greek-Prince-during-Roman-invasions-turned-DarkHunter and

somewhat-innocent-new-to-powers-sorceress-Amanda-modern-accountant.

I liked Kyrian and Amanda. So, liked their story. Neither was an asshat or TSTL. Fairly explicit (maybe even skim-worthy explicit sex), but no dubious consent or some supernatural whatsit compulsion factor. Without being too spoiler-y, I really liked that the conclusion didn't require one of them to act totally out of character. Not really an in-line-with-internal-logic of the series explanation of the villain, though.

As much as I enjoyed this one, the preview of Talon's story at back of the ebook I read makes the next book sound way more interesting. ( )
