Say goodbye to the garlic-hating, crucifix-fearing vampires of old. With her steamy, action-packed Dark-Hunter novels, Kenyon is ushering in a whole different class of night dwellers. These new millennium models are gorgeous . . . An abundance of hot sex and snappy dialogue keep the plot both accessible and appealing. With its courageous, unconventional characters and wry humor, this fast-moving fantasy will fill the void left by the end of the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" series.
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 unputdownableSee all Product description

Love, Passion, Humour, Tragedy & Abuse Recovery.
Sherrilyn Kenyon is a fantastic writer & The Dark-Hunter Series expresses emotions of the lead characters (different in each book) & support characters so well within this fictional world & the genre of horror/supernatural that I can fully relate to them and usually am in tears or laughing out loud (trying not to when around family to avoid seeming insane)
All the books are inter-related plot & characters (Dark Hunter World) but can be read as individual supernatural love stories.
Talon, an amazing Dark Hunter with a tortured past (which Dark Hunter hasn't) but he is so very human & hero material that one can't help but sympathise with him & love him, utterly.
When he was mortal, he loved his wife thoroughly. It is a love that transcends even death. Quote 'Nothing kills that sort of love'by Eros (in this book).
His wife, now reborn as Sunshine reunites with him again as only soulmates can. Together they battles Gods and curses & triumphs. The plot has lots of twists and has kept me glued till the last page.
A new character is introduced: Zared, another tortured soul, oops, I mean, soulless. I can't wait for his story now and will pre order it.
We meet Acheron here again. I love it that you get bits and pieces of Acheron's story in every book... tantalising us with his magnetic character & mysterious past. This book is a must-read even if only for Acheron story...
Tricked by his cousin, Talon goes to battle and kills the son of the Celtic Wargod, Camulus. Enraged, the God curses Talon, forbidding him to ever love someone or else they will die. Betrayed by his clan Talon is forced to watch them sacrifice his beloved sister before he himself is executed. As his soul cries out in fury he receives an answer - vengeance can be his if he agrees to enter the Goddess Artemis' service. The bargain is struck and another DH is created.
Sunshine comes from a rather eccentric family; her father is a Shaman and her mother Starla is rather weird. She is therefore pretty much ok when she meets Talon and starts dreaming of her past life as a woman named Nynia. What she can't understand is if Talon is the reincarnation of her husband, why does he have the same name and look the same in present times? If he's the same man he'd be hundreds of years old and that would be just plain freaky. Though Talon tries to keep his distance due to his curse their relationship blossoms, yet Sunshine has reservations. Does he love her or Nynia's soul?
Though the growing romance between the pair is great, I found the secondary story involving evil Gods and Ash's twin brother Styxx completely enthralling.Read more ›
Read any of these Dark Hunter novels and leave your sane, analytical part of brain in bed, get rid of anything male, settle down and have a really good read. You might start off thinking Buffy or Blade - but don't worry - you'll soon forget all about them - these are very sexy books.
The men are sooooo sexy it make you wanna weep - yes it's full of vampires and demons and things that go bump, it stretches the imagination more than once, but they are well put together, great characters - and lots of them (means lots more books!!) and, for what it's worth, I thoroughly enjoyed the ones I have read.
Well worth a read - just a shame that they are quite difficult to get hold of!
THE DARK HUNTER SERIES
This is the third book in the series and features the Dark Hunter Talon and Sunshine Runningwolf. Talon is an ancient Celt who lives out in the middle of the swamp surrounded by his favourite 'pet' alligators. After losing his wife Nynia in childbirth and his sister after being tricked by his clan and them murdering her he basically doesn't want to (and can't) let anyone into his heart. That is until he meets the eccentric Sunshine! Sunshine is an artist and meets Talon after he is run over by a float at Mardi Gras, they obviously end up having wild and passionate love *cough cough* and their love story blooms from there. It does turn out that Sunshine actually is Nynia re-incarnated although still also Sunshine (she has Nynia's soul in her re-born) and that she was brought back so that the god Camulus could make Talon suffer even more than he did in the past however the book does have a nice little twist re this at the end.
It took me quite a while to get around to discovering this series as when you look up Sherrilyn Kenyon on Amazon and these books in list order it actually shows Dragonswan as being the first book (but it's not) and Dragonswan is never ever available to buy! As a girl who likes to read all books in a series and most definitely the first one in a series, thinking that I couldn't get the first book did actually stop me starting the series. I have only just discovered that the first book is actually Fantasy Lover, read this and have now proceeded to order the rest of the series:) Sherrilyn has now joined the ranks on Gena Showalter and Kresley Cole on my favourite authors list and I can't wait to read the next one.

This was much better than the first one, but it sort of lost it towards the end - so this one gets a 3 Star rating as well. Read morePublished on 2 May 2015 by LydiaLeigh257
