I have read every book in the Dark-Hunter series and prior to reading "Seize the Night", my favorite story was Zarek's in "Dance With The Devil". I thought no one could be more tortured than poor Zarek. Wrong!

I was captivated by Valerius almost immediately! Gone were the black leather pants and the gothic/punk attire replaced by turtlenecks, slacks and style. Wow! What a breath of fresh air! Not saying I mind a hot bod clad in tight leather but...it was a nice change. *grin

This man was sooo sensitive. Sensitive without being wimpy, mind you. I just wanted to cuddle him. And he was such a gentleman, in my opinion. I was pissed at how he was treated by everyone around him, including his fellow Dark-Hunters. However, I was very impressed by the fact that Artemis didn't bestow any extra powers on her Roman Dark-Hunters. That pretty much told me that Valerius was one bad mo-fo to have fought off Daimons for centuries using only his strength and skill. What a man!

What infuriated me, yet managed to touch me was the fact that Valerius never stood up for himself. He silently took all that was dished out to him without raising his voice or a hand in his own defense. And when I read about his upbringing at the hands of his cruel father...man, I broke down and cried like a baby. *sniffle

Tabitha was also a very likeable heroine. In fact, she is my favorite so far. Very down-to-earth with quite a few eccentricites, she was my kinda gal.

Darker than most of the other books in this series, I'd have to say hands-down, this was by far the best!

For those of you who have been living in the Dark Ages, or perhaps under a rock, and haven't a clue of Ms. Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series, there are a few vocabulary terms you must become familiar with before reading this review.

Dark-Hunter: Dark-Hunters are created from ancient warriors-but not just any warrior-only those who have been wronged and are dying, due to an act of treachery and betrayal. At this time, Artemis approaches the dying warrior and offers them a pact-a one-time Act of Vengeance against the party who has wronged them. These soulless beings, neither Apollites, Daimons, nor humans, are the only thing that stands between humanity and the creatures who seek to destroy them.

Apollites & Daimons: Apollites are direct descendants of the god Apollo, who has the unfortunate luck of being cursed when they killed his twenty-seven year old mistress, Ryssa, and child. Even worse, Apollites are forced to die a horrible, painful death over a twenty-four hour period when they are twenty-seven themselvs. Daimons, of course, are the unearthly creatures that Apollites transform into during their twenty-seventh birthday celebration.

Now that you have the basic downs, you can fully enjoy SEIZE THE NIGHT. The latest in Ms. Kenyon's series, this book centers around Valerius Magnus, the good-looking, quick-tempered Dark-Hunter who had the good fortune of being born to a Roman Senator, serving as a Roman General, and conquering cities throughout the countries, too numerous to name. He's also the poor, unfortunate soul who has the bad misfortune of being betrayed, losing the woman he loves, and becomes a soulless Dark-Hunter.

I could say that Valerius doesn't play well with others, but that would be an understatement! He refuses to embrace those who once rejected him, and he's not quite sure how he ended up in New Orleans, staked by one Tabitha Devereaux, a woman who somehow happens to be almost as proficient at hunting and destroying Daimons as he is. But, alas, the gods aren't happy enough just to force Val into working with the Dark-Hunters he has tried to avoid at all costs-instead, fate has decided that his mortal enemy should be married to Tabitha's twin sister. He'd probably laugh, but he lost that ability sometime around 160 BC.

I love this series. Actually, I love every book that Ms. Kenyon writes. But with SEIZE THE NIGHT, she's managed to capture the true emotion of Valerius's pain, his betrayal, and his resolve to stay emotionally uninvolved with Tabitha. Tabitha herself is no humble society debutante-she's worked for years to put her psychic talents to good use, by protecting those she loves, and her city from the destruction of the inhuman beings who wish to destroy it.

However, this time, an evil force is determined to destroy everything that Tabitha holds dear, and if it can take Valerius down in the process, so much the better. The storyline is non-stop action, the heat and emotion between Val and Tabitha is kept at a perfect pitch. Once again, the Dark-Hunters reign supreme-or do they? There's only one way to find out, and that's by picking up your very own copy of SEIZE THE NIGHT.

Love this series...intertwining characters, exciting plots, and best of all...each book IS NOT the same story over and over again. Series deals with gods, goddesses, vampires, werewolves...you name it...it is in there somewhere. You don't have to start with the 1st in the series...JUMP in and get addicted!

This tells the story of Valerius, the Dark Hunter that everyone despises because he was a Roman and his grandfather was the one who tortured and crucified Kyrian. Enter Tabitha, the vampire hunter and sparks fly! I really enjoyed the interaction between Tabitha and Valerius; they are such opposites. You also get to learn a lot more about the whole Dark-Hunter world and all the deities within. Since there are so many characters in this book that were introduced in previous books, I think it is best to read these books in order to truly understand what is going on (this is book #7). I am enjoying the Dark-Hunter series and plan to keep reading!

This story is just not worth the paper it's printed on. After a few chapters, I really wanted to just throw it in the trash. I had read the previous book to this one and thought it was okay, but all this book is, is more of the same. The writing continues to be unoriginal and the author seems to only have characters who know how to spout cheezy one-liners like it's cool... trust me, it's not. I'm not even going to go into how a lot of the main characters have a plethora of powers and money and continue to try to "fight the good fight" when it's just ridiculous that they even participate in their "wars" when there shouldn't even be a battle because the "good guys" have so much power. Nothing is believable (as far as fantasy stories can be believed) and the imagination the author has is lacking due to all her plot-holes. There are far more authors out there who can deliver a story while not making you annoyed that there are obvious flaws to their overall narrative. I'll be avoiding this author in the future.

Oh...How I love a good Dark-Hunter romance!! Bless SK's heart...the woman writes and it makes me swoon embarassingly. I love them as a quick easy read that I don't have to put much thought into I just melt away into them and let my heart go. I really liked Tabitha as the lead female I always admire a kick ass chick! I loved that since she is an empath Val couldn't hide his emotions from her which is why she was able to see though his cold hard exterior and know what he truly felt. Tabitha's roomate, Marla cracked me up and Val's big favor to her was a heart tugger. I don't read these in order (I know that will earn me some sneers) but I read one and the go to the next character that moves me. I had recently read Zarek's story and wanted to learn about Valerius, I loved reading his side of the story. I was seriously pissed at the way everyone treated him and the way he felt deserving of there ill will was heart wrenching. I will say I found it suspect that Tabitha knew half of New Orleans and hunted Daimons every night and had never crossed paths with Valerius before. Also that Val was 2000 years old and had never fallen in love with anyone who he actually had a relationship with? Never mind any of that, as I say I don't let myself think to hard about these books. I just read them and love them and allow myself a mini vacation on the couch while reading when I get the chance. I'm never disapointed.

Tabitha is the twin of Valerius's mortal enemy's wife, and she and her sister are being stalked by a power that will not rest until everyone they hold dear are dead. Valerius must end a two thousand year old feud to save them.

This book, thus far is my favorite in the dark hunter series. I loved Zarek's story, but this one has surpassed his. This book had it all for me ~ humor, action, great chemistry between the main characters and a wonderfull dose of Ash. Val is not Mr. Popularity in the Dark Hunter world due to his noble roman birth and has dealt with it for centuries. Tabitha is considered to the be wild child of her family ~ which is a feet in an of itself. When these two meet all bets are off, neither is what the other would ever look for, but when they are thrown together they have no choice but to work it out. Kenyon did a wonderful job with showing who both Val and Tabitha are and how the old saying "don't judge a book by it's cover" is so true.
Although you could read this book as a stand alone, I think to fully understand who all the other characters are you should read the series in order, starting with the prequel Fantasy Lover.

SEIZE THE NIGHT by Sherrilyn Kenyon is an intense, suspenseful romance with vampirism thrown into the mix. I loved the two main characters in the story. Tabitha is a great example of what strong women should be like. She is a fearless woman but love still made her weak in the knees. And Valerius, for all of his toughness, was just screaming out for compassion. Ms. Kenyon is a wonderful storyteller who pulls readers in and doesn't release them until the last page is turned. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books in the Dark-Hunter series.

Dark-Hunter novel. Story of Valerius Magnus...hated by almost everyone, even his brother DH's for the actions of his grandfather and father against his half-brother and ancient enemies, he finds himself ordered to protect Tabitha, sister in law of his worst enemy. The only way to accomplish this and to allow himself to love Tabitha is to find a way to bridge a two thousand year old feud. Just as terrific as the other DH books.

I was born the noble son of a legendary Roman senator. I walked through the ancient world as a general, admired and supreme until a brutal betrayal caused me to bargain my soul. Now I'm an immortal Dark-Hunter, bound to protect mankind from the evil scourge that haunts it. Over the centuries, I've seen many frighting things: plagues, pestilence, disco music...

And now Tabitha Devereaux. A human, she has trained herself to fight vampires every bit as capably as any Dark-Hunter. Idiosyncratic and off-beat, she is my personal bane-and yet she beguiles me. There are only two small problems. She happens to be the twin of my mortal enemy's wife. More than that, Tabitha and her sister are being stalked by a power that will not rest until everyone she holds dear is dead.

Unlike my Dark-Hunter brethren, I rely on no one but myself. They spurned me and I turned my back on them. But the only way to save Tabitha and her family is to find some way to bridge a two-thousand-year-old feud.

They say opposites attract, but can they stay together when even the Fates conspire to keep them apart? Then again, the Fates have never dealt with the likes of Tabitha Deveraux before. They're going to be in for quite a fight...

This was a fast paced, awesome read!! One of the fastest books I've ever read. I just couldn't put it down.

One of my favorite authors, this is another great book by Sherrilyn. Not one of my favorite characters in the series, but still a good read. Though it's hard to believe that the two lead characters would actually get along. Tabitha is one of the best female characters in the series, and this book showcases her humor.

Honestly, I wasn't looking forward to this installment in Kenyon's series because in previous books Valerius sounded like such a royal jerk. I am so glad that I couldn't have been more wrong. Tabitha and Valerius are a unlikely couple that at first glance appear to be completely wrong for one another. They are polar opposites, but she completes him in a perfectly sexy way. The fire between them is potent, and best of all, she doesn't take any of his crap or allow him to hide his true emotions. Tabitha is sexy, smart and an in-your-face type of girl that will kick your butt to the curb if you give her any lip! Gotta love her!

Excelent story! It's about Valerius, the hated Roman Dark-Hunter, and Tabitha, the ecentric human vampire slayer.

This book contains a sub-story about Asheron. There is a alot about his history and mysterious powers. We find out what Ash "is". This alone makes this book well worth reading.

I was impressed and disappointed by this book. Impressed because I did (surprisingly) really like Valerius and Tabitha. I loved that Sherrilyn Kenyon had them speaking in Latin and I believed their swift courtship and ultimate love for each other. I liked that Tabitha was spunky without being annoying and unlikable, which all too often happens in romance novels. However Tabitha is strong without being unforgivably bitchy. I also loved the cast of characters that inhabit Tabitha's version of New Orleans.

To explain why I was disappointed by this book, I must give some backstory. I was referred to this book by a fellow Kresley Cole aficionado when I was bemoaning the lack of respect given to No Rest For The Wicked hero, Sebastion, on Kresley Cole's forum. She said that Valerius reminded her of Sebastion and his woobie factor just broke her heart. I had to immediately check out this book despite purposely having not read any of the Dark-Hunter novels. So, admittedly, I have not read any of the preceding books. Despite this, I was able to understand a lot of what was going on plot-wise. But this may have been a factor in me not liking most, if any, of the Dark-Hunters other than Valerius. Because this hero was compared to my favorite romance hero of all time who was conceived by my favorite romance writer of all time (who, incidentally is just a great writer period) I was expecting better character development of all the main characters and especially in how they relate to Valerius. I felt like there was a lot of what was supposed to be character development but it came off as somehow shallow to me. Zarek and Kyrian came off as particularly juvenile and whiney, their beef with Valerius blatantly unfair and misguided. I know this happens in life, but I'm supposed to be rooting for these people and they are constantly being referred to as childish. For that matter, I thought most of these ancient beings, be they gods, daimons, vamps, or otherwise were all uncharacteristically melodramatic and emotional. I just don't think of ancient Greek generals as this immature and out of touch with the cruel times they were living in 2000 years ago.

Also, I think Ash or Acheron is supposed to be this wonderful character but I found him to be too much of a deus ex machina. He apparently can do anything and the convenient handing out of immortality, bringing people back from the dead (except those pesky red shirts), and being all around perfect just annoyed me. He suffered from what I call the Lestat Syndrome wherein an author makes her main hero so awfully perfect and well-beloved that he becomes achingly boring and stagnant to the plot.

I really enjoyed this sojourn into the world of Valerius and Tabitha and I appreciate their storyline. But I just found all the clutter in the background to be too distracting and not that complementary to their love story. Therefore, I don't believe I will continue reading this series.
