Now this is Sherrilyn Kenyons normal writing. I am not sure what happened with her past few books, but they stunk. This is how she normally writes. A great story. It is nice to see Julian, even if it is for only a few pages. Now lets all hope that Acheron's book is as good as this one and not like her last two books.
This was another of Kenyon's great works!
Although I don't care a whole lot about the Dream Hunters, this one I did like. It's probably because there wasn't the usual dream sequence scenarios. There were a few lingering questions about side characters that could of been answered without mucking up the main story, but they weren't answered. Maybe it'll be something mentioned in a future book?
With the little excerpt in the back of Acheron's story it left me drooling for more! Can't wait to get my hands on THAT book!
**My impression of this book before I had finished** Every book in this series you learn something new about: the Dark Hunters, Were-Hunters, Dream -Hunters, Acheron and other gods, and demigods(correct me if I am wrong about the rank in races of beings). What i try to connect with is the mind of the main character. If they feel real enough for me I am convinced I will enjoy the story. There's so much happening that I know I will enjoy re-reading this series.
This is the story of Xypher a Phobotory Skotos (nightmare Dream Hunter). He is released from Tartarus (Hell) for one month to get his vengence against the one person who he feels betrayed him and sent him to Tartarus. Satara.
He meets Simone and they end up shackled together and have to figure out how to get unstuck. Of course during this time Simone's utterly enduring personality chips away at his otherwise unfeeling exterior.
Since the Dream Hunter series is not my favorite of the Dark Hunter series I bascially read this in order to move on to Acheron. I did enjoy learning about a new Hunter. I liked the relationship between Simone (and finding out her secret!) and Xypher. Overall fans of the series will enjoy this story.
I read this book without reading anything else in the series and that didn't help. I felt like I was playing catch-up throughout the entire story. Lots of characters with little or no introduction. This is not a bad book. I just recommend reading the first part of the series first so you won't be quite as lost as I was. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it far more if I had done the same.
Good read by Kenyon. Typical of her Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter series. She never disappoints.
