Zarek's Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me, and I tremble. She smiles, and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?


This book is my fave in the series to-date because of Astrid and Zarek.

Yup, I’ve had a little trouble personally with the female leads in Fantasy Lover, Night Pleasures, and Night Embrace, but Astrid did me proud. I love how she is blinded so she can judge fairly.

He turned to face her. “Don’t push me, princess.”

Ooooo,” she said in a less than impressed voice. “Next thing you’ll be talking like the Incredible Hulk. ‘Don’t make me angry, you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.’” She cast a haughty look in his general direction. “You’re not scary to me, Mr. Zarek. So you can just check that attitude at the door and play nice while you’re here.”

You tell him, sister! Break down those walls with your power of kindness and understanding and patience.

Whether you’re Zarek or Zsadist from Black Dagger Brotherhood (J.R. Ward) the ‘Zs’ have had it freaking tough, tortured and downright been given a horrendous past. I still think Zsadist possibly had it tougher, but Zarek is a close second for me.

Doesn’t stop me loving Zarek any less.

Artemis… I really want to stick it to this biatch. She has a lot to answer for when it comes to Zarek (this equals good writing by Sherrilyn).

I am too nervous to look ahead to see if it is Acheron and Artemis getting it together because I can’t stand her. In the next ten plus books, if he winds up with her, she better be worth it. At this early stage in the series I am all about, ‘Biatch, keep walking.’

I enjoyed Simi’s character and Sasha’s. Seeing Acheron in a different light when it comes to an almost father-like persona with Simi was unexpected.

An excellent addition to this series and I’m looking forward to starting Kiss Of The Night, but also fitting all the little novella stories in the reading order in the book Dark Bites.

Totally digging this series.
