I’ve been a faithful fan of the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon since back when the books were still being released. 16 years later and I’m amazed at the evolution of the Dark Hunters and Dream Hunters and the connections between all the stories and characters.
Meet our tortured hero, Valteri – deemed terrifying and unlovable and a horrible demon – because of, guess what? The color of his eyes! People can be so cruel. The one thing I’ve always admired about Sherrilyn Kenyon’s stories is her ability to show the worst of humankind. And the best of it.
Stuck in a predicament not of her own choosing, Ariel still saw Valteri for who he truly was. I loved that about her. She didn’t let the prejudice and bigotry of other people stop her from seeing Valteri’s good heart.
And of course we can’t forget all the hidden nuclear secrets, appearance of some favorite characters, a surprising cameo and a satisfying end. The pacing was a bit slower than usual but overall it was a nice addition to both the Dark Hunter and Dream Hunter series.
A big thanks to NetGalley & Macmillan-Tor/Forge for the eARC in exchange for an honest review.
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.Continue reading “Book Review: Dragonbane (Dark-Hunter #26) – Sherrilyn Kenyon”→
