Product Description


Humour, snappy dialogue and general character crankiness make this one of Kenyon's most entertaining. The interplay between characters is lively, and the plot threads twisty - all leading to a most excellent adventure (Romantic Times)

Brisk, ironic, sexy, and relentlessly imaginative (Boston Globe)

Book Description

Kenyon's award-winning Dark-Hunter series offer readers a world full of dark and dangerous heroes, feisty heroines and a richly imagined mythology - utterly unputdownable. (This is the also the 3rd in the Dream-Hunter series).

Xypher the Skoti who appears in Dark-Hunter novel "Devil May Cry" takes the lead role in "Dream Chaser". Granted a month of mortality by Hades before he again has to endure further centuries of torture, Xypher is determined to track down and exact his revenge upon Satara; the demi-goddess responsible for turning him Skoti. Unfortunately Xypher instead finds himself handcuffed to medical examiner Simone Dubois with Atlantean manacles which entwines their fates.

Simone is nominally aware of the Dark-Hunter world around her and accepting of the supernatural; having had the companionship of Jesse the ghost since the age of ten following the deaths of her brother and parents. As a medical examiner with the ability to interact with deceased victims ghosts' Simone finds herself discreetly handling the more unusual cases; fully aware of the widespread panic that would be unleashed if the general populace realised nasty things that go bump in the night really do exist. Finding herself dealing with the first casualty of a Dimme attack (the Dimme who escaped her imprisonment in "Devil May Cry") Simone soon finds herself the target of supernatural attacks herself whilst falling in love with a Skoti demon.

Simone is the type of person to never take anything at face value and so completely disregards Xypher's "don't get too close" attitude; able to empathise with the deep pain and anger he carries inside, and it certainly doesn't hurt that he's totally easy on her eyes. Xypher in turn begins to fall in love with Simone; the first person ever to treat him with kindness, yet he is unable to even contemplate a future together; remaining unwilling to sacrifice his opportunity of revenge and aware he only has another three weeks left on Earth.

Format: Paperback
Xypher is back on Earth for one month and he is not the only non human that is visiting New Orleans. His heart is cold with vengeance, the one that betrayed him will have to pay...big time. If there is one thing that Xypher wants is to be accompanied back to Hades with his betrayer. This need courses through him, dark...violent and with a single minded focus there is nothing that will keep him from the path he set out to walk. Or so he thought.

Besides the same occupation as a medical examiner, Tate and Simone share a life of the bizarre and supernatural. Tate is beside his job also a squire and Simone has a gift to talk to the dead, she even has an in-house-ghost named Jesse. It is at one of their lunches that Tate tells her of the murders with a peculiar cause of death, especially since one of the corpses heart started to beat again and subsequently caused to scare the daylights out of the examiner on duty.

Together they seek answers and it is in that moment that Xypher crosses its path with Simone. With an enemy bound to kill it manages to get a bracelet slapped on Xypher and Simone's wrist, thereby irreversibly binding a human to a dream God. Suddenly the stakes of the game gotten a whole lot more interesting but also dangerous, for weakness is something that Xypher does not adjust to.

It feels good to be back in New Orleans! The third novel in the Dream-Hunter series is an improvement on its predecessor Upon A Midnight Clear. With some of the old characters and a few new ones Sherrilyn Kenyon spins an entertaining tale that holds some interesting new information for those who are well acquainted with both the Dark and Dream-Hunter series.

Format: Paperback
Well, I'm a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon, having read all of her books and even branching out to her Kinley MacGregor books. The first two Dream Hunter books were good but not as good as her Dark Hunter series. This was, as the previous review says, on par with one of those earlier books.

Xypher is a hero to be admired. He's endured inconceivable pain and understandably is wary around people. He still has great capacity for love though, you will see if you read this book.

Simone is a perfect match for him. Her humour to his sullen-ness and her light to his dark is a classic match and again works in this novel. Their chemistry is unbelievably hot and Kenyon involves the reader, making them have an active role in wishing these two to stay together. The love story itself is sweet and yet complicated as most great love stories are. All in all I would say Kenyon has hit her stride with these books. Well done!

If you want the backstory to this book you'll find it in 'Devil May Cry'. You can read this story without it but it's nice to see returning characters and know the backstory before reading it.

I made the mistake initially with the Dream-hunter series as thinking of them as a separate series to the Dark-hunter books. They're really not. You lose some important elements of the world if you don't read both strands, and let's face it, the Were-hunters aren't hived off as a separate series. I reckon the good guide is that if Acheron or any one of his connections shows up, it's really part of the same series, and Acheron does make a significant appearance in this story.

You see the crossover clearly in the opening scene where our heroine, Simone is at lunch with Tate - the New Orleans city coroner we first met in Night Pleasures, rescuing Kyrian and Amanda from the daylight. The hero, Xypher, we have already met too - in Devil May Cry where he helps out Kat and Sin, and earns his time as a human, which is what we share here.

The strongest connection plot-wise is undoubtedly with Devil May Cry, as we're awash with demons, particularly the Gallu we first met in that book.

Simone teaches future pathologists, hence her connection with Tate. Her choice of career is driven by the tragedy of her childhood.

We also, because of Simone's unique talent, get to meet some ghosts. Most importantly Jesse the young teen trapped in a 1980's timewarp that those of a certain age will remember vividly. He's great fun, and adds lightness and humour as another struggle between the defenders of humanity and those who want to rule the world at any cost ensues.

We also get to meet Jaden - the demon broker, a character it's worth taking note of for future reference. He sounds like someone who really deserves his own story, for sure.

The Simone-Xypher story is one of discovery. One discovers their humanity, and the other discovers something unique about their heritage and learns to embrace it. Together they find love and a future together.
