Kenyon has a great website. She has areas for anything you can imagine. There are author facts liberally sprinkled on many of the pages. One of the factoids interested me greatly.

When St. Martins decided to go hardcover, Sherri was concerned. Her fans were used to two books a year and since hardcovers cost so much, she didn’t want to abuse their pockets. As a comprise, she and her publisher worked out a deal to keep the Dark-Hunters coming out twice a year with the Dark-Hunter/Were-Hunter novels being hardback while the Dream-Hunters would continue in paperback form.”(Kenyon’s site)

Sherrilyn Kenyon has a two new additions to her Dark-Hunter series. The first is a free e-book that you can request from here. The second is Dream-Hunter. Dream-Hunters are helpers to the Dark-Hunters and next year there will be a second book in the series.

Arikos is a god. He is a cursed god. Cursed to feel no emotion except when in the human dream world, he finds a woman that piques his curiosity and makes a deal with Hades to be near her. He barters the soul of Mageara (Geary) for two weeks of being human. Two weeks of feeling emotions and touch.

Mageara is fulfilling a promise given to her father on his deathbed. She promised to search for the lost city of Atlantis. On her search, she learns about the Gods of old and herself. She must decide whether to follow her instinct or continue the search that killed most of her family.

Did I enjoy this book? Yes. There is a ton of information about Greek mythology incorporated into this book. It obviously has many hours of research logged into its creation.

What didn’t I like about this book? I disliked a lot of the banter. At first it was humerous. Then it became tired as it dragged from two brothers to several of the Gods.

Are there any Dark-Hunters? Yes. A cameo moment is made and we learn that this story is taking place while Archeron and Nick are still best friends. Nick’s mother has not died yet.

Would I read this book again? No.

Am I glad I read it? Yes.
