Arikos, an emotionless Erotikos Skoti is tolerated by the other Gods to help drain humans of excessive emotions; yet at last he has found a mind so vivid, inside her dreams he too can experience emotions. Drawn to this woman, he becomes so obsessed with wanting to meet her as a mortal he strikes a deal with Hades. For the opportunity of two weeks of mortality he is asked to trade the very soul of the woman he wishes to meet; and agreeing whilst still an emotionless Skoti, he has no idea of the hurt and anguish his decision will cause him in his human body.

Dr Megeara (Geary) Kafieri has witnessed most of her family die in their pursuit to prove the existence of Atlantis; however she too pursues the same goal relentlessly following a promise to her father on his death bed. Despite her quest, events in Geary's life are pretty normal until she and her crew rescue a drowning man; a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to her dream man, a fantasy lover who has erotically plagued her dreams for months. Although his in depth knowledge of Atlantis and ability to gain the permits she requires for excavation prove invaluable, Geary still remains wary of the mysterious Arik; however her attraction to this man is difficult to deny. Arik in turn begins to realise that maybe he was lucky not to have emotions; his own love for Geary now tempered by pain and grief that he has bargained away this woman's soul.

There is an almost dazzling array of characters in this book. Several Gods feature, including Hades, Persephone and Wink to name but a few, a new Dark-Hunter named Trieg is introduced and we encounter several additional supernatural beings, including Zebulon (aka ZT) a Chthonian (an immortal human more powerful than the Gods) and the Dolophoni (the assassins of the Greek Pantheon).

I'm glad that Sherrilyn Kenyon has done this book.After her last book which i didn't like (not one bit), i was worried that she was fed up of the dark hunters/werehunter's.Then this one came out.

Yes is it a slow starter.Yes its one that is set in an earlier time (set just before 'dance with the devil').Yes its about the dream hunter's.And we learn a few more things about Apollymi, that she does seem a good guy but she's a god in her own right.Gods are out for what they can get.

There is alot of new side character's to learn about as well.You get the feeling that the things in this book help to tide up some questions that you have when you read the other books.

I would reconmend this book instead of the dark side of the moon as it is more in keeping with what we know of the hunter's universe.Can't wait to read archeon's book as his heroine is in this'll have to read it to see if you can find out who.Enjoy it as i did.

I thought this book would be more Dark-Hunter related than other spin offs and ontology's, but I was disabused rather quickly. I must admit I never thought an author of SK's caliber would produce such a badly put together novel, in which there were numerous glaringly obvious editorial mishaps, and a very shaky plot. There seemed to be too many characters that have no reason of being in the plot, they added nothing, and eventually after introducing them they faded away. Some reviewers have commented about this book being another build up to the Acheron book, and I must admit, I agree. Yet, it doesn't build any suspense nor does it feed curiosity about Acheron, all it does is make every other book in the series seem like an after thought. Moreover, the whole scene where Acheron puts certain actions in motion which would eventually lead him to kill Nick are totally contrived, and I would think that such a "dramatic" scene could have been re-written in a more convincing manner. I really enjoyed the other Dark Hunter books, and I hope this is not an indicator of what's to come.

I recommend trying "Moon Called" by Patricia Briggs instead!

A great instalment in the Dark Hunter series and first of the Dream Hunter series. Sherrilyn Kenyon's ability to intertwine Greek Mythology and fiction is superb as she brings the Gods of Olympus right up to date and into our modern, human world.

Arikos is a fallen God, a Dream-Hunter sating his need for emotions on human dreams, until one night when he comes across a human who's dreams are so vivid and so tempting that he can't help himself. And he'll do anything to experience those emotions with her in the real world.

Geary has spent all her life trying to distance herself from her families infatuation with proving that Atlantis was real. Desperate to avoid the ridicule and bad luck that has plagued them for years; the quest having claimed the lives of so many of her loved ones. But a promise made to her father on his deathbed has her seeking the very treasure she's denied all these years.

And when a handsome man literally falls into her life and is able to give her the permits she needs to continue her father's work, she can't believe her luck ... But does luck really have anything to do with it?

With strong, vivid characters, in a well-imagined world that fan's of Kenyon have come to love, it was hard to put this book down.

However, depending on which list you read, it was difficult to know where this story fit in with the Dark Hunter series. And on getting to the end I was surprised to find we were way back at the beginning with Kyrian and Zarek, before their stories were told. But aside from that confusion, Sherrilyn Kenton fans can't fail to enjoy this book.
