Présentation de l'éditeur

In Son of No One, next in the blockbuster The Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, it's not easy being life's own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they're even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted-out hoopty running. But when something truly evil is released into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcements.

From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn't quite right.? Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his age.

Centuries ago, Cadegan was viciously betrayed into an immortal prison by the only person he'd ever trusted and was cast into an immortal prison. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him. Something he can't seem to fight and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him everything.

He knows he has to stay away from her, but the unleashed demon is hell-bent on consuming her soul. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed... and wishes for better 3 septembre 2014
Par Izzy Busy Bee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I do not want to be too critical of an author's writing and style because it is honestly hard to write books that people would want to read. But that being said, I felt that the series was going nowhere in this book. Just when you think you met the most powerful being in the Kenyon-verse, you're introduced to another character who is more powerful and has a more tragic story. And all of them do, at least all the men, which comes across as identical people. There is almost nothing that makes them stand out. Also all the sappy lines stay the same, such as "she looked at him like he mattered." Honestly, you can flip-flop characters and the story remains the same. It lacks originality and creativeness, which I'm sorry to see is gone. I loved "Seize the Night." It was honestly one of my favorites and there was a clear direction of romantic growth between Valerius and Tabitha. It wasn't sudden and they had the time to know each other. I feel like the author is trying to finish a book instead of taking us through a story. I hope that she re-evaluates her writing style and follows the storyline through to the end.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Satisfying romance, though I got lost at times 2 septembre 2014
Par Jen (Red Hot Books) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I seriously debated with myself about whether to read this book. I hated Styxx with the fiery passion of a thousand suns, and honestly, the Dark Hunter series has been losing me for awhile. I have had an increasingly difficult time following all the threads of the larger story arc since Acheron. I thought I might be ok when we started to learn about the Hellchasers, but then we moved on to the Native American lore and with some of the Greek and Atlantean stuff still in there, I just can't keep up.

All of that aside, I really loved the early books in the series. I had to give it one more chance, even though I had never even heard of the hero or heroine. I'm glad I did.

Even though I didn't recognize the core couple by name, I did recognize their family connections. Josette is a cousin to the clan of Devereaux women. She's tight with Selena, Tabitha, Amanda and the gang, but she is cynical about the supernatural. Obviously, that is about to change. Cadegan, meanwhile, is related to Thorn and has spent the past thousand years in a hell dimension, courtesy of the Hellchaser himself. The couple meets when Jo accidentally falls through a mirror that serves as a portal to his prison.

Cadegan is the quintessential Kenyon hero. No one has ever loved him. Everyone he ever trusted has betrayed him. He lives a life of misery in a gray world... until Jo enters the picture. The two of them connect right away. It's total insta-love. Like in a day. But I was so caught up in the angsty tortured hero stuff, I didn't really care. She brought color and kindness into his world. She made him feel hope again. She looked at him (*wait for it*) ... LIKE HE MATTERED. -That's how you know you are reading a Kenyon book, y'all.

Anyway, Cadegan makes it his mission to get Jo back home and he goes to great lengths to do it. There are bumps along the way. Ash, Styxx, Thorn and others enter the picture. There's a dragon and some Fae and, somehow, some King Arthur stuff thrown in the mix. Somehow, it's all tied in with Noir and the Malachai and even though I have read every book in this series -some multiple times- I couldn't connect all the dots if my life depended on it. So I stopped trying and wallowed in the romance.

The relationship progression is classic Kenyon. I've read it in dozens of her books, but it still works. At least it does when the hero hasn't been raped a thousand times or sent to an island alone for 11-thousand years. And in this case, we didn't enter that territory so I was good with it.

It was a very fast read. It was a fair number of pages but the font was big and the margins were huge so I'd be curious to hear the word count. Overall, though, I think Dark Hunter fans will like it. I just wish Kenyon would have a primer somewhere so I could refresh my memory on the connections between all players, like Jared, Jaden, Noir, Thorn, Nick and the significance of the Sephiroth, the Malachai and.. just everything. Is it just me?

It wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't very good. The only truely redeeming quality was that it was setting up the "next tier" of the overall story. It was a filler book.

Frankly, At this point I am finding the chronicals of nick books to be more interesting then the last few dark hunter novels. It genuinely feels like she has put all her effort into that plot arc and is scrambling to fill gaps with these other novels. Which is fine. I can't blame her, a few of the books leading up to archeron were pretty unreadable. What is not acceptable is paying 13 dollars for this slop.

Review:

Hmmm… I keep reading and hoping and reading and hoping that the series struggles out of this 3 star slump it’s been in for me already years. Again, this next installment had some awesome parts and things I always expect and love about these books, but then again it had so many aspects that just continue dragging the series further down, so unfortunately 2 stars this time – it just didn’t rise above that. I’m genuinely sad!

This book had some unexplored plot devices for the series, for example, most of the action taking place in a medieval-like demon dimension, fairies, Britannia and so on. So it definitely had some fresh ideas and new paths not crossed before. Thanks to this, the book had a different vibe to it than the previous ones, which was unexpectedly pleasant.

I think one of the most anticipated aspects about this series are the hints, clues and information given regarding the multitude of intriguing, mysterious and compelling characters introduced. They are the ones you want to know more about, but Kenyon keeps a tight grip on every piece of itty bitty info and I predict she will eternally keep you craving for more, because the amount of such characters she creates isn’t exactly small and at least in every book there is a new addition to this elite secretive club of hunks. At times it annoys me, but the joy of finding out something new always compensates for the frustration. Also, in this installment, we get a lot, but not nearly enough regarding one of the members of this elusive club: Thorn. The tidbits were intriguing to say the least, especially the one in the very end before the epilogue.

I was extremely heart-warmed to see Ash and Styxx getting along so well and truly behaving like loving brothers. Theirs were one of the most memorable moments in the book.

Now to the cons:
I didn’t feel that there was a significant conflict or final obstacle in the book, of course, there was something, but it was too shallow and too easily brushed aside or at least it came across as such. There were again old loved characters just stuffed into the book without any substantial purpose, I want better for them to than just be mentioned or have one line of dialogue just for the sake of it. The story was too rushed and handled too superficially, especially during the second half and the same was with the romance, which is sad because the potential was all there, honestly, there was sooo much promise and I was so excited for this book.

Something that’s started to really bug me: I’m at a point where I need a summary, diagram or anything that will help sort out all the relations and connections between all the characters. I was so lost several times when new info and background knowledge regarding characters and their relations were thrown out there. Also, can there be a stop to the most-powerful-being craze, it’s like each new or even old character is more powerful than the last. When you think this is the über boss, then another comes along who makes mice out of the last ones.

Something about the characters:
I liked Cadegan, he was sympathetic, kickass and tortured, but not in an overdoing kind of way. Despite everything, he was a nice guy not some bitter and hateful badass. That was a pleasant surprise and kind of refreshing.

Jo, I wasn’t really that fond of, because while I adore smarty-pants and sarcastic heroines, she was just too much. Almost everything she said had some “hilarious” remark in it, at times it was so inappropriate and so against the mood of the situation that it got bothersome quickly.

Overall:

The world of the Dark-Hunter series is fascinating, vast and addicting and I sincerely hope it will find its way out of this slump! That’s all I’m going to say.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 lacking something 8 septembre 2014
Par AG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. It is lacking that special something I've always enjoyed about her books.

I was surprised to see her bring the Avalon world she wrote about as KM into the DH world. I read those and the other KM books first and had always hoped for more, but I don't think this story did justice for either world. It was just too choppy. Something that seems to be going around, and that I really wish would stop spreading.

I also couldn't stand Joe. I felt like I was reading Nick from the YA series and not grown woman. I know adult women can be dorks and say goofy stuff. I'm one of those women, but this was at a whole other prepubescent boy child level. Which is fine in tge Nick books. Not so much this one.

(spoiler )

The body changing sex scene was the most ridiculous waste of words I'm pretty sure I ever read by this author. Just thinking about it makes me want to take an extra star off.I think I will. It's not because the scene exists, it's how it exists. It's really awfully done and just so childish.

(end)

While there was info there you'll want to know as a series follower, it's jst been poorly delivered. I would have liked less stupid and more story. I would have also likwd to seen the story finished. Notin the "let's tie a bow on things" manner that'sbecoming popular. It's beneath this author's talent and I wish she hadn't stooped.

One final note. I hate to see a book end at barely 70% finished. I would have preferred the story be complete. Most people read the Bornbooks anyway without the need of a several chapter preview. I was irritated enough that I didn't read it.

I like the idea of the story. Always hve. It's why she's remained one of my favorite authors. I love the worlds she builds. I'm a sucker for agood world building. Had this been the first book of hers I had read, her name would have been added to my "never again!" list. This book was wackier than a wombat in a washing machine. Unfortunately it just wasn't the good kind of wacky. If you're a long term fan, you just might yourself as dizzy as said wombat. It's a renter book. definitely not worth the hardback new release price.
