Kiss of the Night


I found this author a few years ago and have been reading everything related to the Dark Hunter Series since then. When this book popped up as a re-release I was more than happy to review it. This one tells the story of Wulf and Cassandra who are enemies by race. Their principles and beliefs are different as well and the obstacles between them look unbreakable.

But the author has a talent for showing the other side of the fence. She presents the Spathi Daimons, even good Spathi Daimons, and many different kinds of Apollites, especially one certain community: their lives, deaths, dreams, difficulties, fears, and their attitudes to their fate. As Wulf has never really thought about his enemies, neither have I, and now it was shocking and surprising to face them.

This is an enthralling story, with an exciting plot, twists and turns, a heartbreaking loss, sizzling erotic scenes, amazing secondary characters, and fantastic humor.

I was pleased by the inclusion of Acheron, Simi, and Zarek.

My new favorite character and love, is Urian. I really felt for him. I swear, this book alone made me cry more than all of the previous ones of the series altogether.

Book Blurb for Kiss of the Night

Wulf is an ancient Viking warrior with a useful but extremely aggravating power-amnesia. No one who meets him in person can remember him 5 minutes later. It makes it easy to have one-night stands, but hard to have a meaningful relationship, and without true love he can never regain his soul. When he finally meets Cassandra, the one woman who can remember him, she turns out to be the princess of the cursed race he's sworn to hunt-and forbidden to him. The two of them must face ancient curses, prophecies, and the direct meddling of the Greek gods to find true happiness at last. Kiss of the Night is a Dark-Hunter novel from bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon.

This is a re-issued title from 2004.
