The Dark-Hunters are exteremely powerful and are required to live by the Dark-Hunter code: Harm no human, Drink no blood, Never fall in love. When a Dark-Hunter defies this code, the Alexion is sent out to bring the Dark-Hunters back into line. The Alexion has the power to kill Dark-Hunters. The Dark-Hunters are stirred up because several of them have regained their souls (in the previous books) and achieved new happiness - the ones who are left behind are grumbling - and the Spathi-Daimons are taking advantage of this to stir them up to open revolt against Acheron. Acheron sends out the Alexion to quell the rebellion. But, since this is a romance novel - the Alexion falls in love with a Dark-Hunteress named Danger. I like the way that each Dark-Hunter novel reveals a little more about the Dark-Hunter world, and Acheron. I would definitely recommend reading them in order.
A Dark-Hunter Novel. As powerful as they are, what happens when DH's are judged to have irrevocably crossed the line? The Alexion is sent. A one-of-a-kind being, he himself describes himself as "other". Sent to the realm of humans, he is to stop those who are breaking the first two rules...harm no human, drink no blood. Danger, a Dark-Hunter, died through the betrayal of her husband during the French Revolution. She has not really trusted any man since. Forced to play hostess to the Alexion and knowing he is there to be judge, jury and probably executioner of some of her DH friends, she has no reason to give either her trust or her cooperation to him. But she is the key to Alexion saving some of her friends. Now will the Alexion break the third rule of the Dark-Hunters....Never fall in love? If you are a devotee of this series, each book provides more clues as to what Acheron really is. Same for this one.
I love a book where the heroine is really that... a heroine! This lady can hold her own!!An excellent dark romance novel!
While have enjoyed the Dark -Hunter Series so far, I find them to be getting a little too much of a good thing. They all seem to be bacically the same story told over and over with different charaters.
this series just keeps getting better.
