From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon comes the next thrilling installment in her blockbuster Dark-Hunter series
The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy…
Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.
The Time Untime approaches…
Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind.
What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life. One who belongs to a world the scientist in her refuses to believe is real.
Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has found the one person he can’t fight. The one person who, against his will, holds the most sacred part of him.
But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once.
Will he be able to make it again?
I have said it before and I will gladly say it again, Sherrilyn Kenyon is by far one of my favorite author's if not my favorite author. I have no idea how she gets her inspiration and manages to still keep things fresh after writing so many books. She knows just the right time to insert her dark humor and cause me to chuckle out loud, earning me strange looks from passer by's.
I think one of the best aspects of this author is the fact that love for them, is never easy, each relationship they have had to fight for their love. It is not freely given, nor is it easy to keep once attained.
Just when I think I have heard heartbreak, Mrs. Kenyon manages to weave another Dark-Hunter's tale that has me close to tears as I imagine what they had to go through, the betrayal that as Mrs. Kenyon writes " is so foul that their soul screams in such a volume that it reaches Olympus and Artemis's temple."
I loved the different culture she has started to explore, where most people are sticking to Greek mythology, Kenyon has the daring to branch off into many different shades of pantheon's.
I also liked that Nick and Ash are starting to understand one another once again, and even though there friendship is far from fixed it seems like it is slowly getting there, giving off that nothing is beyond hope.
One of my favorite things about this author's books is that she knows how to write a fight? So many author's rush it or make it seem so fake that you can't really get into the good action scene's, Kenyon has no problem melding action and drama into one beautiful sexy package.
Love never comes easy for her characters' but you become so invested in them that you can't help but turn the page and silently root for them and wish to be able to scream at them to wake up. I am truly excited to see the transition I have heard rumor's about, of this wonderful work being put on the big screen.
Memorable Quotes: (Bare with me, I couldn't seem to narrow it down anymore lol.)
1. "One 'oh shit ' moment can undo all of our best efforts to protect this world, and there's nothing more dangerous in this existence then a moron on a mission."
2." I don't know, that man scares me." She scoffed at Rain's words. "That's not saying much, cuz. As I recall, spiders render you catatonic and even lady bugs make you scream like a girl."
Rain stiffened indignantly. "Not my fault. I promise you. If you ever saw my dad dressed like a Killer Lady Bug with my uncle Seamus for Mardi Gras, you'd be terrified of them to. Just saying. Aint nothing more scarring then two straight men in drag singing. 'It's Rainging Men' to me and telling me I was named after that song. And if that wasn't damaging enough, my mom agreed with them. It wasn't until I was old enough to realize my birth predated the song that I finally calmed down."
3. " He has to request it,but yeah. In spite of the rumors, I haven't completely gone to the dark side yet. But damn, those cookies are good.." Come to the dark side. We have cookies. Someone spent way to much time on the Internet."
4. "You look like hell buddy." (Acheron Saying to Ren.)
" Ah,damn, " Ren said, trying not to move his busted jaw any more then necessary. "All those hours in the salon wasted. I'd just got my nails done, too."
"You're so not right. "
5." How will I know when I love someone like you did Grandpa, Grammy?"
" Oh baby " She'd said, brushing Kateri's hair back from her face. " That's an easy answer. When you know you'd b e willing to lay your life down to save theirs without thought or hesitation. When five o'clock comes and they're not home like they said they'd be and you panic and cant breathe for fear they're not coming through that door ever again. When the though of laying them in ground hits you so hard, you can't breathe for it. Most of all, when something good or bad happens to you and they're the first one you want to share the news with. That's how you'll know it's love baby. There wont be any doubt whatsoever."
6. "Sharing a life with me, and making it so that even the worst days I have now are still the best days I've ever known."
