Dark-Hunter: Night Pleasures
Although this isn’t the initial story in the Dark-Hunter franchise, it is the first full novel that Sherrilyn Kenyon offers her readers into this ever-enticing universe. With humor and drama both balanced out in good measure, we’re introduced to Kyrian of Thrace; a formidable and intimidating Dark-Hunter. Typically a loner enveloped in darkness, he finds himself bound to Amanda Devereaux; an accountant. As she’s being hunted by one of the most dangerous vampires there is, it’s up to him to protect her. Initially finding himself in-between a rock and a hard place, the reluctant hero forms a bond with Amanda as the novel progresses. All this whilst fighting to save humanity from the brink of obliteration.
Combining fantasy and romance, this novel takes a look at unlikely relationship occurring amidst all the chaos and turmoil. With Kyrian living an exciting lifestyle, with danger lurking around every corner he has everything he’s ever wanted at his fingertips. Wealth, immortality and power have all been at his disposal. That is until Amanda turns up with her conservative approach to life as she turns his whole world upside-down, creating an impact he couldn’t have ever possibly foreseen.
The world of the Dark-Hunter is as dangerous as it is shrouded in mystery. With emotional scars embedded deep within his psych, Kyrian is unsure whether he will ever be able to love another again, especially after the trouble it caused last time. Amanda holds a certain attraction he can’t shake off though, despite his best efforts. World’s apart, they seem to be each others polar opposites as they’re alien to each others day-to-day lives. It also comes to light whether Amanda herself is capable of bringing herself into a world so disparate from her own straight-laced existence.
This is the novel that really delves into the all consuming universe of the Dark-Hunter and what it’s like for them. All this whilst providing the fans with all the necessary details needed for understanding this unique world. Will they be able to save humanity?
