I found this to be a very good read, and quite frankly, I'm very surprised so many have given this book 3 stars or less and such bad reviews over on Amazon.com for what is actually a very good and enjoyable book. It certainly deserves more praise than what it's getting on amazon.com.

I think the main reason is because many people can't understand why a villain got his own story. What they don't understand is that it was in some ways necessary, it gives you insight into what made Stryker who he is, his background, and why he became so cruel over the centuries, it aslo shows a differnet side to him (Like the previous book did with Acheron), and to a certain degree, a caring side, yes he's still evil, but at least he's not a complete monster.

And yes, there are some very funny moments in the book, particularly between Stryker and Zephyra, although someone reading the Dark-Hunter books for the first time (or who doesn't read them often) might not be able to read between the lines and see the humour that is under the surface of these books.

The twist with Nick was very interesting, and un-expected, it's certainly going to be good seeing where the series goes next over the next 3 arcs.

This is more a 3.5 star review but I don't know how to get the half star!Okay, I agree with the above reviewer in saying that it is a good bridging book but...it was just far too short. Big print. Not really a book IMO more like a novella because you will be able to read it in a few hours. Although we got to see why Stryker is the man he is today, I still felt as if the story could have been fleshed out a bit more and the romance just seemed a little flat to me. Maybe because his HEA isn't that likeable, she's bitter and cruel but then again perhaps that's what he needs for a Daimon Queen? I don't know, I expected some redeeming features but couldn't find many.

On the plus side if anyone was getting a little fed up with Nick and his sulking...I think he's gradually going to come out of that. Also, as with all Sherri books, she's introduced some interesting new characters and pantheons, a healthy dose of 'warm and fuzzies' and she always keeps us guessing...

Format: Paperback
After reading the synopsis of this book (some time ago), I had wondered how on earth SK was going to play this one, after all, Stryker is the villain of the piece.

In reality, the Stryker/Zephyra storyline, although quite predominant, vies equally for attention with the other storyline in this book, which serves the purpose of bridging the gap to the next arc by introducing new characters and a bit (understatement!) of a twist for an existing one (more on that in a bit). However, as I understand that the next arc is to be JADEN, I was a little surprised that he didn't pop up in this book.

What this story does do is humanise Stryker to a great extent and provide you with more understanding of his motivation. Whereas previously he was perhaps just perceived as evil plain and simple, you now appreciate that (while he's never going to be good), he does still feel love and emotions.

After Acheron, there was always going to be a lot to live up to, and I guess I was a little underwhelmed by this one, and slightly disappointed that we didn't get to see as much of Ash and Tory together as a couple as I thought we may have (I personally like to revisit couples again after their own stories).

There was a major twist with an existing character who has featured in the series from the start, which I didn't see coming and I have to admit that it seemed a bit "spur of the moment" to me as, unless I've been completely obtuse, there had been no clues to it previously!

Given this twist, I'm convinced that although this book supposedly marks the end of Acheron's arc, he still has a big role to play going forwards.

As a previous reviewer has said, the book seemed a little short (big font padding out the pages), and is likely not one you'll read again and again, but provided a pleasant interlude whilst we're awaiting the next full length novel.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the first time in the Dark-Hunter series a true villain takes centre stage; Stryker, the son of Apollo, adopted son of Apollymi and a nasty individual who has tried unsuccessfully to kill Acheron in several previous books. From the very start of "One Silent Night" Stryker is yet again up to his old tricks, unleashing the ultimate warrior War from his captivity deep in Tartarus and ordering him to destroy not only Acheron, but also Nick Gautier; the man responsible for the death of his sister.

Unfortunately he fails to consider the full extent of his actions, and soon Gods from various Pantheons are uniting to re-capture War and place him in stasis whilst Artemis again meddles; calling forth demoness Zephyra to kill Stryker. Zephyra has no problem with this order; after all she's hated Stryker for over eleven thousand years since he divorced her and married someone else.

There is an absolute array of battles between various Gods, Immortals, Demons, Daimons and newly introduced super powerful beings; the Malachai and Sephirii. Amid all this action Stryker fights his own personal war, to again win the heart of the woman he still loves before she rips out his own. The reader also learns more of Stryker's history, the reasons behind his actions, his relationships with Apollo and Apollymi and his deepest regrets and griefs; namely his abandonment of Zephyra, the execution of his son Urian and his hatred of the curse placed upon his people.

I have to agree that after the lengthy "Acheron" this book is far too short and doesn't take much time to read. That said, once opening it, I was so glued to the storyline that I was unable to prise myself away.
