Book Description

1 Sep 2011 Dark-Hunter World (Book 2)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and Wicked 4 Nov 2002
By Ms. C. M. Winton VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Night Pleasures is the story of Kyrian of Thrace a 2000 year old Daimon hunter and Amanda Deveraux sister to Selena from Fantasy Lover. The book begins with a recounting of a greek legend about a great warrior and prince Kyrian of Thrace. Made into a dark creture of night he hunts those creatures that would kill motals.
Amanda likes boring. Especially with such a strange family and vampire hunter twin sister. but her life is about to get very complicated. She finds herself waking up next to one very gorgeous, dark and sinfully handsome man. Now they are bound together and not just by handcuffs. Kyrian has no soul but Amanda is convinced he has a heart and that he needs her.
After reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's first book Fantasy Lover I could not wait to start reading this and I really was not disapointed. This book is a real page turner, I would suggest that you put aside a few hours to read it, as once you start you will not be able to stop. Filled with unexpected twists and turns that book is exciting and original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book 1 Nov 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think this book is better than Fantasy Lover the first in this series, this was so much more exciting. We meet again Kyrain of Thrace who was a great friend of Julian the fantasy lover, Kyrain was a Prince and a great General who fought bravely against the Romans. He fell deeply in love with a woman who did not love him and who betrayed him, the Romans tortured him and then crucified him and that would have been the end except Artemis a Greek Goddess revived him and made him a Dark Hunter, his job was to seek out the Vampire creatures and destroy them. One day in the present time he wakes up and finds himself handcuffed to Amanda who doesn't believe in Vampires or anything that goes bump in the night. Kyrain finds himself fighting for his and Amanda's life against a very powerful vampire and gradually Amanda helps him and realises that she is the answer to his prayers, that she can help him regain his soul and maybe become human once again. At times reading this book I thought I was reading one of Christine Feehan's Dark books, it reminded me of her books but I enjoyed it very much. Both Kyrain and Amanda are very likable people, Kyrain is tough but so much alone and has suffered greatly in his past, Amanda is tough as well but she is a softy at heart and although very frightned of what is happening to both her and Kyrain she loves him so much she will do anything to help him. All in all a great exciting book and I look forward to reading the next one where we meet Talon another great Dark Hunter.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read 23 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kyrian of Trace has made a pact with the goddess Artemis. For one act of vengence she will possess his soul and become one of her army of imortal Dark Hunters. Who, wanders the earth destroying Daimons-a vampirelike creature. To do this he has taken on all the characteristics of a Vampire.
Over two thousand years later Kyrian is captured and knocked unconscious,waking up to find himself handcuffed to Amanda after she has been kidnapped in place her twin sister (who likes to think she is a vampire slayer) by an evil Daimon, who can only be killed by a Dark Hunter with a soul.
Kyrian finds himself feeling things for Amanda that he has not felt for a woman in over two thousand years. Is Amanda the one woman who can restore his soul? If so, how?
Night Pleasures is written in the same vain as Sherrilyn Kenyon`s debut book Fanstasy Lover, Julian even pops up one or twice. But, you do not have to read it to enjoy this one. I`ve read it twice already.
It`s funny, sad in places, the sex secnes are great without crossing the line of erotica, and you find youself hoping Amanda is the one who can restore Kyrian`s soul. Also wanting to know more about the other Dark Hunters who wander the earth along with Kyrian and how they each lost their souls.
A GREAT read. I`ve given 4 stars only because I can`t wait the the next installment the the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a true dare devil 31 Oct 2005
this is where we meet Julian's best friend Kyrian who is now a Dark Hunter after trading his soul to Artemis for revenge. This is the first full length Dark-Hunter novel and it is truly great filled with fabulous humour and scorching scenes of passion between Kyrian and Amanda - the woman who he practicaly kidnapped by mistake thinking she was his twin sister Tabitha. Amanda is a straight forward young woman who wants nothing to do with the world of the paranormal, but finds herself drawn to Kyrian despite this...and to her own powers too. Brilliant Dark-Hunter novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting new angle in the vampire world 18 Nov 2006
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is the first of Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Dark Hunter" series novels that I have read and overall I enjoyed it. It follows Amanda Devereaux, a relatively normal young woman whose family are anything but - she has eight sisters, all of whom have different psychic and other powers and who spend their time being vampire hunters. Amanda's fiancé just finished with her after meeting her whacky family for the first time and she's fed up with life.

And then she finds herself kidnapped and wakes up handcuffed to an unbelievably attractive man (of course he would have to be dishy to be a hero in one of these books)... and the hunt begins. Her co-prisoner turns out to be a sort-of vampire (a Dark Hunter) with a distressing past. He has been dead for over 2000 years and was originally Kyrian of Thrace, a prince, who met his downfall through a betraying woman. Since that time he hasn't trusted anyone and has lived his life - he exists to exterminate Daimons, evil creatures that kill humans to stay alive - alone.

His plans go a little awry when he finds himself attracted to Amanda and wants to protect her. But is she safe with him as the master Daimon Desiderius is after him?

There were some great pieces of world-building in this book, if a little complex. There were also fascinating snatches of Greek and other ancient history - most of our heroes are at least two millennia old. There are some fights and there is also a lot of sex (perhaps too much, it detracted a little from the story). My one significant reservation to this story is that the evil Desiderius is remarkably helpful in terms of the plot - he has Kyrian completely at his mercy at the beginning of the story, chained to Amanda, but he doesn't destroy him.
