This was my first Dark Hunter book and I fell in love with the series. Kyrian is a great character (an ancient Greek general who was betrayed by his wife and later crucified). Now he spends the nights wearing yummy leather pants and saving humans from the dark creatures of the night (who happen to be sinfully good looking as well). Then he meets Amanda, the accountant, and he gets a bit distracted. I love how Ms. Kenyon develops her heroes (with flaws) and the secondary characters are as interesting as the main ones. You can't wait to read about them as well! And the smut is pretty good, as well. Love the scene where Amanda gets Kyrian over his fear of having his arms immobilized (as in being crucified) by tying him to the bed and ...(involves whip cream)! Great stuff! Each book in the DH series gives you more pieces of the puzzle that is the DH world, and you leave each book hungering for more. Enjoy!

Dark-Hunter Series
Follows the novel Fantasy Lover (Prequel) and the novellas The Beginning (in Sins of the Night) and Dragonswan (in Tapestry Anthology) [if you want to read them in order]. Ties into Fantasy Lover with character overlap which I really enjoyed. I liked this book better than Fantasy Lover, because it starts introducing the Dark-Hunter characters and the role they play in controlling the Daimons who threaten humanity. Very, very hot sex scenes between the main characters. What a lucky girl!!

Kyrian is 65 --Have Mercy! He is truly one of my favorite heroes. Actually, this couple is a favorite of mine. They both have big hearts and are very likable. Now that Ive entered the world of the Dark Hunter, theres a lot of information pumped into this book. I knew I had a lot more books to read in the series, so I really tried to pay attention to the whos and the whats. Night Pleasures and the world of Dark Hunter, is packed full of adventure, survival and passion. I enjoyed all of the characters in this book and it was a great story- the romance very real. I can see why so many are reading this series. I didnt want to wait for the librarys copy for the next book, so, I went out and bought Talon the Celts story, Night Embrace. The best thing about this series, is that its like an action packed show that you can start and stop at any time. And there are still more books coming out!

This is the first book in Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to finish this book. During the first 150 pages, I kept thinking that if I have to read the descriptions of Kyrian's "luscious body" one more time, I was going to barf! It was just waaaay to heavy on the romance for my taste! But since this book is the first of a very popular paranormal series, I wanted to at least be able to reserve my judgement until after I've read the first book in its entirety.

With that commitment made, I plodded on, often putting the book down for a longer length of time than usual and not wanting to pick it back up, seriously considering starting on something else instead. I guess it was finally around halfway through that it started to get a little more interesting. I don't know if the author got sick of going on for 2 pages describing Kyrian's 6 pack, or if I just got used to it, but any of that overly-descriptive gushing seemed to become slightly less at any rate, and I was able to enjoy the rest of the story somewhat.

Other reviewers talked about the sex scenes, and though there were plenty, they were kind of blah, not graphic enough for my liking. I think the author was afraid to use words like p3nis or pu55y, and instead used all kinds of flowery terms instead. I don't mean to offend anyone by saying this, but if you're trying to write like erotica, then just do it, don't pussy-foot around! (Pun intended *grin*) Otherwise, if it's not erotica, as this book really isn't, then keep the sex scenes toned down a bit.

Great book is Kenyon's fantastic Dark-Hunter series! After reading several DH books in a somewhat random order, I'd suggest that you do read the books in order as you will get a richer experience. Kenyon carries many of her characters throughout various books.

Also, the Acheron character (the powerful head Dark-Hunter) progressively develops in each book. We learn little things about him and his mysterious background along the way. He will have is own book in 2007.

They DO keep getting better! The second Dark-Hunter was a fun, sexy and dangerous guy that was enjoyable to get to know; a believable story that had you pulled back in again and again and enjoying every sentence of the way.

I love anything by Ms Kenyon, but this will always be one of my favorites. All of the Dark-Hunter books (Were-hunter, Dream-Hunter) are stand-alone books, but the stories will tie together if you read them all. You don't even have to read them in order. Kyrian of Thrace is an immortal vampire ("Daimons" in this series) hunter who ends up handcuffed to Amanda, who REALLY wants a normal life and is forced into a super-natural world. Many parts are very funny, but there are some steamy love scenes, too. I would recommend this to anyone who like paranormal romance.
