Fast! A very fast read. Couldn't put it down, I had to know what was going to happen next. Then of course the ending had me to where I want to know more of that. Must read more of this writer's stuff. She is good!
Though this book wasn't one of the better books in the Dark-Hunter series, it was worth reading. There's more insight into Ash's tormented life. Also, an angry Nick Gautier comes back into the DH world. I'm looking forward to the e-book "Fear the Darkness" that continues Nick's stroy.
another great book of the dark hunter series. i love this one. alot. susan and ravyn awesome character. fell in love with both of them. and then ash showed up and loved it more. anyone that hasnt read the dark hunter series. really should.
I read this and although I am a HUGE fan of vampire romance and thrills. This book was a little too far-fetched for me. I love fiction, but this seemed a bit ridiculous at times. Definitely not my favorite author for the paranormal romance genre.
A Dark-Hunter novel. Susan, the hottest investigative reporter on the Beltway, was set up and her reputation destroyed. Now the only job she can get is as a reporter for a small paper writing stories about killer moths and alien babies. Life cannot get any worse....until she is called to the local animal shelter to get information from a friend about a breaking story, and the advice to get out of town as soon as she writes the story. Taking home a cat as a cover for her reason for being at the shelter she endures her constant sneezing caused by her allergies. Once home, her plan to leave the animal in his box until it can be picked up changes when the animal appears to be choking from a too tight collar. Pulling the strange collar off, she turns away and turns back to find a gorgeous - and - lethal shapeshifter on her floor....naked. Inadvertently pulled into another world, she must become a Squire and swear secrecy or else. How Susan handles her introduction to shifters, Dark-Hunters, the Daimons they hunt and her growing attraction to the "kitty" she is allergic to provides humor to this DH story.
Another great book in the Dark-Hunter Series. Love how characters in this series are intertwined. Very detailed stories that pull you in...you don't want to put it down...and wait with baited-breath for the next installment!
I got hooked on the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon after reading Fantasy Lover (book 1). I must say the earlier novels were a bit better but overall I liked Dark Side of the Moon. Even though you don't really need to read the eariler novels to understand this book I would recommend it. It's nice to know the history of the other characters and see what they are up to. Why else would you read a series? I can't wait for Ash's story!!
The first book of Sherrilyn Kenyons I ever read. Before I ever knew what a Hunter was. Needless to say I was hooked. I can sympathize in the cat allergy and the wat it was played out was humorous as well as very sexy.
Love all the Dark-Hunter books! I am currently trying to get them all in hardcover and am slowly sharing the paperbacks on here as I replace them!!! I STRONGLY urge any reader who likes vampire books to read these:)
Love the author her books are creative and captivating. This book was no different it held me entranced with the storyline and got me personally involved and wrapped up in the plot and mesmerizing story. I look forward to reading even more of her works.

You Have Got To Be Kidding Me!! A Cat! He changes into a Cat? A Tiger? No, a Cat. A Lion? No, a Cat. A Cougar or a Leopard, hey maybe a Cheetah??? NO! He's a house cat!
If it were not for the background info and my desire to get to Acheron's book I would literally burn this book. This is the stupidest most ludicrous plot. Surely to goodness she had to have been on vicodin when she decided it would be dark and mysterious and sexy to have the leading man, the dangerous dark hunter... be a cat.
Did no one else think that that was the dumbest idea ever or is it just me?

Not bad, this one was also surprisingly good. I liked the humor and whit of the main characters. I also really liked kick ass Susan, she held her own in a fight against the Daimons and in my books that's awesome. I like it, plot line continues and of course Omnicent Ash comes in and saves the day. Can' wait for his.
This one does not have the flow that Kenyon's other DH series have, it wasn't one of her better novels.
There was some of her classic SK humor though, who would have a female lead character who is allergic to cat's fall for a shapeshifting DH.
Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires... yeah. Just another day in her life.
Then she gets talked into adopting a cat she's allergic to. Her first thought is to neuter the cat. But when he turns out to be a gorgeous shapeshifting man who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer she thinks: not so fast. Next thought: seek professional help.
Susan doesn't know what to believe, but as she's drawn into a paranormal world, she comes to realize that the story that could bring her credibility is too unbelievable to expose. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers, it's a matter of saving lives and souls, and her only ally is a man she's allergic to. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, it's always dangerous. But never more so than when one very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is... will she?
Amazing book. Kenyon has done it again. This books answered many questions but also made many more questions. If you are going to read this book remember to read the other first of some of the thing in it will be confusing to you.
I thought that this was a pretty awesome book. I love all of Kenyon's DH novels. This one was a little different - characters that I wasn't familiar with from previous books (that's one fo the things that I love - when you get to know the characters from multiple books), but it was still good.
This is one of the best Dark-Hunter books yet. I started it yesterday evening and just finished it 24 hours later. Ravyn Kontis makes you wish Weres and Dark-Hunters really did exist...tall, dark, and handsome, and with a sensitive streak to boot. Yum!
Paranormal Romance. Lots of X-rated fun in the dark.
