Review ~ Devil May Cry by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Title:Devil May Cry
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Series: Dark Hunter #12
Rating: 4/5
Source: purchased with my own money
 

Synopsis: (from Barnes and Noble)
 
Sin, a Sumerian fertility god turned Vegas casino owner, and Kat, the zealous servant of bossy Greek goddess Artemis, knock boots and kick butt in Kenyon’s juicy 11th Dark-Hunter paranormal love-fest (after 2006′s Dark Side of the Moon). Sin’s been on the warpath for thousands of years, since Artemis stole his godhood. Sin’s also upset about the disappearance of his twin brother, Zakar, and the imminent invasion of the vampiric Sumerian gallu, who plan to liberate the Dimme superdemons and destroy all humanity. Kat agrees to kill Sin before he kills Artemis, but instead the two fall in madcap love while trying to prevent Armageddon. It’s just another day’s work for the immortals, who act a lot like ordinary quarrelsome people with way cool superpowers. Though readers may need a scorecard to keep up with the cast, this series puts a contemporary spin on classical mythology that an increasing number of fans have found irresistible.
 
Review:
 
This is the second book I’ve read in Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series and I think I have a Dark Hunter addiction! Sin’s a real bad ass who’s been doing things pretty much on his own since Artemis took his godhood from him, trusting almost no one and looking to extract revenge on Artemis. Then Artemis catches him doing “something bad” and calls upon Katra to go and kill Sin only to find out that the “something bad” Artemis saw him doing was actually something good. See the Sumerian gallu are days away from escaping their prision and when they do escape they plan to liberate the Dimme and that pretty much means the end of humanity unless Sin and a small army can stop them.
 
Oh and then there’s Artemis’ BIG secret that she kept from Acheron! Not going to give that one away though. Gonna have to read the book to find out what that is.
 
I really like how Kenyon wrote this story. Big ole bad ass Sin getting verbally slapped around by little ole Kat….Good times. The fight scenes were GREAT in my opinion too. All the characters, even the not SO good ones, were written in a way that made them all at least a little bit likeable. Oh and then there is the sex….those scenes were written really great too! Just saying.

Review ~ Dark Side of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Title: Dark Side of the Moon
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Dark Hunter #11
Reviewed Format: Bound book from personal collection
 
Rating:4/5 

Synopsis: Susan Michaels was the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until she walked into a setup that ruined her reputation. Now she’s working for a small Seattle paper, penning stories about killer moths and alien babies, convinced that her life couldn’t get any worse…

That was before an idea for a breaking news piece brought her to a local animal shelter where she ends up listening to her source rant about vampires and gets coerced into adopting a cat despite her allergies. But when her new pet suddenly reveals himself to be a gorgeous—and lethal—shapeshifter, Susan realizes that there’s far more at stake than a career-saving by-line.
Born into a world of predators, Were-Hunter Ravyn Kontis was betrayed by those he loved best. Soulless, pitiless, he has spent three hundred years battling the Daimons who seek to subjugate humankind. Against all odds, Susan evokes in Ravyn feelings of tenderness. Desire. Love. And with the ultimate battle about to begin, this one very human woman holds the power to shatter both their worlds… 

Review:

 
This is the first book that I’ve ever read by this author. I liked it but I didn’t really LOVE it. Ravyn and Susan are both characters that are dealing with some extra “baggage” shall we say. Susan is this reporter who always get’s her story (which has cost her dearly) but at the same time has a pretty quirky sense of humor (which you see a lot in the book) and Ravyn he’s pretty much a no-nonsense kind of guy who doesn’t particularly care to be around humans at all because they have cost him dearly. Well now that the Daimons (with the help of some humans) are trying to kill both Susan AND Ravyn they are kind of stuck with one another. The more time they spend together the more that we the readers learn about these two character’s pasts…Not a pretty picture. There is even a little twist thrown in for good measure too. If you like a little Death, Destruction and Mayhem with some smutt thrown in this is a good book to check out.
