New Book Releases – 12 Apr 2022

Hola, Book Dragons, have you read the Dark-Hunter/Dream-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon? It’s one of my favorite series and there’s a new release today – Shadow Fallen.

Shadow Fallen (Dream-Hunters #6) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Synopsis:
For centuries, Ariel has fought the forces of evil. Her task was to protect the souls of innocent mortals when they die. Captured by a powerful sorceress, she is transformed into a human who has no memory of her real life or calling.
And is plunked into the middle of the Norman invasion of England.
Cursed the moment he was born with a “demonic deformity,” Valteri wants nothing of this earth except to depart it and will do his duty to his king until then. When a strange noblewoman is brought before him, Valteri realizes he has met her before…in his dreams. When others come for her, bringing with them preternatural predators, he is faced with a destiny he had no idea was waiting. One he wants no part of.
The truth is that Valteri isn’t just a knight of William the Conqueror. He is the son of one of the deadliest powers in existence, and if he doesn’t restore Ariel to her place, she is not the only one who will be in peril. The world itself hangs in the balance, and he is the necessary key to hold back the powers of evil. But only if he can find a way to work with the woman who stands for everything in the universe he hates.

What about you guys? Any new releases you’re anticipating today?

Stay tuned.

eARC Review: Shadow Fallen (Dream-Hunters #6) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Genre: PNR, Fantasy

Review:

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.

Stay tuned.

Book Review: Stygian (Dark-Hunter #29) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Review:

From the moment Urian was introduced in the Dark Hunter series, I wanted to know his story and in Styxx, he was so cool with his thoughts and beliefs. In addition, the latest Dark Hunter books hinted at Urian’s powers and that he was part of something bigger. Continue reading “Book Review: Stygian (Dark-Hunter #29) – Sherrilyn Kenyon”

Book Review: Dragonsworn (Dark-Hunter #28) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Review:

Out of the three dragon brothers—grouchy, grumpy Falcyn is my favorite. I got to see him in only a few scenes but I totally had a case on him from the first time he was introduced. I couldn’t wait for when his book would be out and I’d know his story. Plus, I liked that this latest book continued from Dragonmark.

Book Review: Dragonmark (Dark-Hunter #27) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Review:

From the moment I read Dragonbane, I wanted to know Illarion’s story, what had happened to him to make him so bitter at the world, why he made the choices he did. I thought Dragonmark would start where Dragonbane left off but Dragonmark gave us Illarion’s story from the beginning. Continue reading “Book Review: Dragonmark (Dark-Hunter #27) – Sherrilyn Kenyon”

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.
