Dear Reader,I've been so curious about Kyrian since I started the Chronicles of Nick series, which I read first. He was a complete mystery to me and reading this story really helped me to understand him better. Thought this was a pretty good story in the Dark Hunter series and I'm really excited to read the next installment. Maybe I'll get the audio book like this one.
Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power? That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of it.
Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. Or in Amanda's case, buttoned all the way up to her chin. She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal-in other words, me.
My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Yet every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try again. Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.
Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.
Kyrian of Thrace
I really enjoy the world of the dark hunters. And hunters are such smart asses which makes it all the better! I really liked Amanda. She was far from a pushover. I can't stand a female that lets the guy run all over her, so kudos to Amanda for that. Listening to the audio really had me cracking up with all the accents :) Then there was Hunter aka Kyrian, which I've been crushing on since the first book in the Chronicles of Nick series. He so mysterious, but that tortured past is always the killer for me. I love a tortured soul. And seeing Nick all grown up in this book was awesome! He's even better in these :) I adore Nick.
There was some action in this book, but I'm a little on the fence about whether or not I enjoyed it. It could have been better. But I did enjoy the romance and it was nice to see Julian and Acheron again as well. Acheron, since I read his book first and then Julian's...Overall, I am enjoying the series and can't wait to continue on.
