My favorite of the series (so far), Night Pleasures tells the story of dreamy Kyrian of Thrace and his unexpected ladylove, Amanda. Though there is a story that occurs before this, Kyrian is the first Dark Hunter to get a book. Julian and Grace from Fantasy Lover make a cameo appearance, complete with babies. And, lo, it turns out Kyrian and Julian are old, old friends (whoda thunk it?).
Kyrian may be a badass Greek warrior prince turned immortal vampire slayer, but he's really a big softy. Don't let his general air of menace, his ginormous mansion and fancy car fool you. He gives money to charity, is kind to children, and, you know, saves peoples' lives. Luckily for him, he's met just the woman to help him see that, just because Artemis has his soul, he's still got a heart. (How's that for cheeseball?)
One of the most compelling things about Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series is the way she takes Greek mythology and turns it on its head. Without a doubt, she excels at molding and merging mythologies. She's also got a terrific knack for one of my absolute favorite aspects of series romances--the tantalizing buildup to specific characters' books. In this case--Acheron. I give her mad props for this.
What I don't think Kenyon is as good as is the individual story. Kyrian was the more interesting of the two main characters in Night Pleasures, but that isn't saying much. Amanda didn't interest me. She's meant to be somewhat ordinary, but she's more than that--she's two-dimensional. I can't recall a thing that she liked, disliked, or was interested in. Well, besides Kyrian.
Another thing that didn't work for me is that the sexual tension doesn't get a whole lot a time to build. This is a personal preference. I love it when the build up to the first kiss almost more explosive than the first time in bed together. (Chill out--I said almost!) Sherrilyn Kenyon is more a WHAM! The attraction hits the MCs upside the face kind of writer. I can't fault her for it--but I can't say I love it, either.
For better or worse, Night Pleasures was a good introduction to a solid fantasy series. I don't think this is going to be a series that I'll love and try to #bookbully people into reading, but I have sought out as many other audiobooks in the series as I can. Being me, I'm definitely looking forward to getting to know the Were-Hunters a bit better. At the same time, I won't be upset if I miss a couple of installments in the series.
I would make dinner for this book.
Night Embrace tells the story of Talon, the Dark-Hunter who appeared oh-so-briefly to help Kyrian out in book one. Of the two, Talon and Sunshine's story was my least favorite. This is primarily because the sexual relationship between the two is consummated very, very quickly. There's a good reason for this, but I prefer it when the tension between the main couple has a bit more time to develop.
Night Embrace works best for me if I think of it as a chance for us to get further involved in the series, and to better get to know our cast of characters. It also tells us a bit more about what it means to be a Dark-Hunter, how you become one, and what it means to be one. What it's not is a compelling love story. It has a twist that can be seen from a mile away, and an ending that is entirely too convenient and neatly wrapped up.
Dance with the Devil
Dance with the Devil picks up almost immediately where Night Embrace left off, and features Zarek, who was very nearly a villain in the last book. What's super duper, uber-compelling about this book is, again, the world-building. I didn't like Zarek, and couldn't look past his surly behavior. His actions were meant to speak louder than his words but for me they didn't. No matter how many good deeds Zarek did, he was still an a@%hole. Words count, and so does tone of voice. I don't care how much he'd been hurt and betrayed. He was a jackwagon. And that made it hard for me to like the woman that fell in love with him.
However, this is the book where we really get to know Simi, whom I love. I love her obsession with barbecue sauce, the way she talks and the bizarre positions she sleeps in. We also get to see more of that dreamy Ash guy and that bitch goddess, Artemis. There are a few more compelling characters that we get introduced to and, frankly, that made this book worthwhile for me.
So, do I recommend these books as audiobooks? Absolutely. This is the way I think they work best. I'd totally recommend them to anyone who wanted to get started on a Paranormal Romance series that would keep them going for a long time. What I won't do is be putting them on my favorites shelf.
I would make dinner for these books.
