Book Review: Dragonbane (Dark-Hunter #26) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Read Count: 2 times


God, it feels so good to read Sherrilyn Kenyon’s writing again! I didn’t even realize I missed her style. Her Dark-Hunters/Were-Hunters are wicked cool. The interactions between them are fun and highly entertaining. The best compliment I can give for Sherrilyn Kenyon’s excellent writing and plotting is, she’s got fantastic, blow-your-mind style.

This new Dragon trilogy set in the Dark Hunter world is even more exciting than the previous books. I loved Dragonbane the first time I read it and the second-read’s even better. I was in tears over everything Maxis suffered. I put myself in his boots and it made me feel that even on my baddest days, life wasn’t so bad.

To have suffered through so much agony, to have your heart ripped out over and over again and crushed to dust and still feel compassion for others, it’s a very special person who can do that. And that’s what Max was – special.

Of course, there’s also the fact that I love dragons. 😉

I wanted to dropkick Seraphina over how she treated him. Max was a gift, the most priceless treasure and she abused that. I don’t know if regret/remorse is repentance but Max deserved his happiness.

I loved all the new characters. Plus, Dragonbane also revisited all my favorite characters. I am in awe over how Sherrilyn Kenyon creates complex plots, links them all in such a way that it makes perfect sense in the end. Kudos for another great story!

Synopsis: Out of all the mysterious boarders who call Sanctuary home, no one is more antisocial or withdrawn than Maxis Drago. But then, it’s hard to blend in with the modern world when you have a fifty foot wingspan.
Centuries ago, he was cursed by an enemy who swore to see him fall. An enemy who took everything from him and left him forever secluded.
But Fate is a bitch, with a wicked sense of humor. And when she throws old enemies together and threatens the wife he thought had died centuries ago, he comes back with a vengeance. Modern day New Orleans has become a battleground for the oldest of evils. And two dragons will hold the line, or go down in flames.



I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
