Even the devil may cry when he looks around hell and realizes that he's there alone.” Devil May Cry is the story of Sin of Sumeria and Katra Agrotera. Kat already appeared in previous books of the series. She is the daughter of (view spoiler)[Artemis and Acheron (hide spoiler)] , bearer of not only unimaginable power and strength, but also kindness and honesty. She is fair-minded and caring. Sin is an ancient Sumerian ex-god of the Moon and Fertility, with stolen powers and undying hatred and hunger for revenge. Kat is sent to kill Sin, an assignment with which she didn’t agree even initially. When she meets him, she soon realizes that Sin is not the loner and the psycho as he was pictured before, but a lethal warrior, and a wounded soul who needs to be tended to and cared for. He is compassionate and tender. He has humor and loyalty. The romance I truly appreciate that there is no love at first sight, even the attraction is not instant. But the conflict is kind of lame and forced as Sin’s wrath for Kat is not entirely righteous. But it is understandable why it is so hard for him to let someone into his heart. (view spoiler)[So about the crucial question of Kat’s assumed betrayal. I don’t think it is that big an issue. She was young and inexperienced at the time it happened, and actually she was forced by emotional blackmail by the person she loved and trusted the most. I don’t condemn her for that. Yes, it was a mistake, but it was not malicious or with ulterior motives on her part. (hide spoiler)] The plot is pretty good with the imminent Sumerian Armageddon, and the genuinely creepy gallu demons and the Dimme. The main and the secondary characters are all loveable and/or highly refined. The antagonist, Kessar is strong, ferocious, and dreadfully evil. Sin’s brother Zakar is a mystery. Acheron is too good to be true – he is breathtaking, captivating, kind and wise. He is a true legend. "You know the incredible thing about hearts is their unbelievable capacity for forgiveness. You’d be amazed what people will overlook when they love someone." Artemis shows a surprisingly soft side – but still, it is not enough to like her. Artemis smiled through her tears as she lifted the blanket higher around Kat's shoulders. "I made a horrible mistake." Her young brow was furrowed in puzzlement. "But you're a goddess. You can't make mistakes." Artemis took Kat's small hand into hers and placed a tender kiss on it. "Trust me, little one. Everyone makes mistakes. Even the gods, and ours are much worse than those of humans. Unlike humans, we don't suffer alone. Rather, we share the pain with thousands. That's why you must learn to be like your father. To hold in your tears and anger. Try not to punish what you love." Xypher is promisingly savage and wild. I'm about to yield to temptation and read his book out of order. "Any game plan?" Xypher asked Sin. "Don't die." "I like it. Simple, bold. Impossible. Works for me." Kat scoffed at his sarcasm. "What are you bitching about, Xypher? You're already dead." Deimos goes with remarkable principles. Simi and Xirena are fun and hungry, as always! "Oh poo," Simi said petulantly, "we can't let the heifer-goddess die. Akri will die too if he can't eat from her." Her eyes flaming, she put herself between Artemis and the tomb. "C'mon, Xirena, you gots to help the Simi protect the bitch-goddess." I loved the appearance of all the unexpected help at the final battle. My favorite parts are Kat and her father’s interactions. (view spoiler)[ Acheron crossed the distance between them. "Is there something I can help with?" "No," Kat said petulantly. "You're a man and I hate all of you right now." He took two steps back. "Fair enough. Since my presence is obviously causing you pain, I'll take my manhood outside to the terrace, where you can join me if you can overlook my obvious birth defect." (hide spoiler)] All in all Aside from small odds and ends (view spoiler)[ (11000-year-old virgin heroine; Kat forgetting about the gallu bite – I understand it considering the plot, but maybe she could have remembered it a day after, when it is too late to cauterize it; Kat’s zero reaction or reflection on her new entity) (hide spoiler)] , it’s a heartbreaking, thrilling, and well-balanced story and an actual milestone installment of the Dark-Hunter series.

    Sin or Nana Su'en (Sumerian God – always AND Dark Hunter – not very willingly) and Katra Agrotera (Goddess) So far, this story is my favorite. Who can possibly love the powerful and beloved daughter of a Greek Goddess and an Atlantean God? A Sumerian God of course! Katra is the daughter of Artemis and Acheron . I suppose this is not really a spoiler, because we learn about this fact early in the book. This is also a fact that Acheron does not know, meaning that he does not know that he has a daughte Sin or Nana Su'en (Sumerian God – always AND Dark Hunter – not very willingly) and Katra Agrotera (Goddess) So far, this story is my favorite. Who can possibly love the powerful and beloved daughter of a Greek Goddess and an Atlantean God? A Sumerian God of course! Katra is the daughter of Artemis and Acheron . I suppose this is not really a spoiler, because we learn about this fact early in the book. This is also a fact that Acheron does not know, meaning that he does not know that he has a daughter for the last few thousand years and that her mother is his worst enemy and only lover. No, thankfully Acheron will not murder Artemis when he finds out. Artemis made him promise to her that he will not kill her and that he will be a good boy and stay at their room until the situation on Earth is clear. Yes, there is a major problem on Earth. Some ancient demons are about to get loose. The Gallu demons are out and want to transform anything in their approximate area into one of them. One bite is enough to make any mortal and immortal, a Gallu. Earth’s only salvation is Sin. An ex Sumerian God who has lost his powers because of Artemis and Acheron helped him become a Dark Hunter and live forever, Besides killing any Gallu, Sin’s main task is to revenge his lost life and his lost people. He basically wants to make Artemis suffer before he kills her. When Sin meets Katra and learns that she is the daughter of his worst enemy and at the same time the daughter of his best benefactor, he is bewildered. Especially when he starts developing feelings for her. This is an awesome book. There will be -battles between Garru demons and Charonte demons (Simi and her sister have a major role in his book), -a great love story between Sin and Katra where Sin learns to love again and Katra learns how to love for her first time (Sin is a God of fertility after all) and -horrible secrets that see the light of day ( Acheron is very emotional, forgiving and sweet in this book) I got a little confused with the transferring of the godlike powers between Artemis, Katra and Sin. Because the transferring happens several times in the book. I presume that the most important thing is that in the end everyone is powerful and happy.

    I'm just saying... you hold on to your virginity for eleven thousand years waiting for "the one", maybe it's not a good idea to give it away to a guy you just met a couple of days ago. A crazy guy...who wants to kill your whole family... and hates you... It reminds me of a song: Hey, I just met you, And you hate me, So, here's my hymen, Call me, Crazy!! I guess she just got tired of waiting... So, this book is about Katra and Sin. Sin is also known as Nana.

I don't know what rocks your boat, and frankly, if either of these do, I don't want to know. Katra is sent to kill Sin/Nana, by Artemis, but she decides to give him her eleven thousand year old virginity instead. And, they have to save the world from some Sumerian demons. The best part of this story, as always, is that we learn a lot of new things about Acheron, and they are juicy. A fun tidbit is that he has a dream about a girl he will meet and who will hate him. I hear wedding bells! lol! I only have to get through another book or so until his book. Can't wait!!

    If Kenyon had been borne before modern times, she would have been a traveling bard. For this woman can tell a story like no other writer on earth. I have been a fan of hers for almost ten years, starting with her historical romances written as Kinley MacGregor. I had turned away from my true self, abandoning the world of fantasy and the supernatural. I didn't read any horror, fantasy, and I turned my nose up at paranormal. 'Who wants to read a book with a vampire as a romance hero?' I scoffed. I If Kenyon had been borne before modern times, she would have been a traveling bard. For this woman can tell a story like no other writer on earth. I have been a fan of hers for almost ten years, starting with her historical romances written as Kinley MacGregor. I had turned away from my true self, abandoning the world of fantasy and the supernatural. I didn't read any horror, fantasy, and I turned my nose up at paranormal. 'Who wants to read a book with a vampire as a romance hero?' I scoffed. I laugh at myself now. I read Night Pleasures out of curiosity, because my sister loved it so much. She was the big paranormal fan in the family, you see. Well it was love at second sight (I already loved this author as Kinley MacGregor). A decade later, I am a paranormal romance fiend. Well, this many years into the future, I can say that Kenyon still has it. Her imagination knows no bounds. Her ability to take ancient myths and build a modern story around the, filling the story with lovable or hateable characters with the human quirks that make a reader keep reading, is a great gift. Few authors write a tortured hero so well as Kenyon does. And Sin joins the ranks. I was a little skeptical how this story could succeed in bringing a hero who was an ancient Sumerian god to life. But it was done very well. Sin might have been a god, but he has a humanity that makes me love him all the more. Katra, introduced in Kiss of the Night, finally gets a book of her own. And it was grand. I liked her from the beginning. It's great to see her story, and how convoluted her family tree is. To reveal that would spoil things, so I won't. But there is a familial reunion in this book guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes if you are a Dark-Hunter fan. Kat is a fun heroine, but also very lovable. Her heart is big and filled with kindness, and she has the wisdom and sensitivity that makes her perfect for an embittered man like Sin. And she can kick some serious bottom too. Kat and Sin were a great couple. Definitely one of my favorites in the Dark-Hunter series so far. It's great to see both of them find happiness, after Sin had lost so much, and Kat had gone eleven thousand years missing a vital part of her identity. Both of the had seen love go wrong, and had the wary hearts to prove it, but they found each other, and saved the world in the process. I also gained some insight into a long-despised recurring character in this book, Artemis. Spoiled, selfish, mercurial, yet she does have the capacity for love. Still not my favorite, and still making me desirous of slapping her hard enough to make her eyes roll, but I can see that she does have some good points. A consistent strength of Kenyon is the cast of secondary characters that she weaves into each story. This book introduces some new faces that had me laughing out loud in the gym on the elliptical trainer with their sarcastic quips. I love the wit and the humor in these Dark-Hunter books. It helps to transition very well from the scenes of sadness as these ancient characters go through awful events that have left the mark of suffering on their psyches. love how she intertwines mythology along with the things that surely come out of her great imagination in her books. It's great to see familiar characters from the myths, but in a story that shows different aspects (and brings these characters to life, dare I say) that the myths could not delve into. Like Hades' sarcastic wit, and his fear of Persephone being angry at him. Gotta love that poor Hades, the all-powerful god of the Underworld is a whipped husband. I must say that I find Hades to be quite the hottie. The much beloved Simi and her sister Xirena also make appearances, with their love of shopping, Diamonique, and devouring demons. Acheron has a very pivotal role in this story that I loved, and we get to see more of his backstory. If you are a fan of his (of course you are), you need to read this book. I need to get the last two books read before I can pull out his book, Acheron. We get to meet Xypher, who is the future hero of Dream Chaser. I am already intrigued with him. Sin's brother Zakar is an interesting character whom I hope to see again, as well. Kenyon also gives us a more sympathetic look at Daimons, as we learn they are not the worst enemies in this universe. Kenyon is one of the funniest writers I've ever read. It's amazing that she can also write some of the most angsty, most tortured heroes I've had the pleasure (sounds sadistic of me) to read about, yet she can make me laugh out loud at the gym, uncaring that people are probably wondering if I'm going crazy or something. If you want several hours of enjoyment that takes you into a world just like our own, but is filled with action, adventure, magic, myth, and an incredible love story, you should read this book.

    3.5/5 It's really hard for me to rate this book! I'm torn between giving it 3 or 4 stars.

Besides, the last 10% could make me wide awake and I found the ending was pretty impressive. After weighing everything and my overall feelings carefully, I decided to push my rating up to 4 stars!

    Devil May Cry turned out to be a bit of a weird addition to the Dark-Hunter series. The story was very entertaining, but the romance was surprisingly dull! Thousands of years ago the Greek Goddess Artemis stole the powers of Sin, the Sumerian Fertility God, before the rest of her Pantheon waged an underhanded war of manipulation that ended with the whole Sumerian Pantheon being wiped out. Sin, now an ex-God, still hungers for vengeance despite being one of the Dark-Hunters. Unfortunately Sin has Devil May Cry turned out to be a bit of a weird addition to the Dark-Hunter series. The story was very entertaining, but the romance was surprisingly dull! Thousands of years ago the Greek Goddess Artemis stole the powers of Sin, the Sumerian Fertility God, before the rest of her Pantheon waged an underhanded war of manipulation that ended with the whole Sumerian Pantheon being wiped out. Sin, now an ex-God, still hungers for vengeance despite being one of the Dark-Hunters. Unfortunately Sin has more pressing problems than his plans for Artemis as the lethal Gallu demons that were buried by his pantheon are now stirring and they are hungry for human flesh. Their goal is to destroy mankind and anyone else who gets in their way. Sin is the only one with any chance of stopping them. That task seems next to impossible without his God powers, but Sin is determined to fight to the last. Katra, a handmaiden of Artemis, is tasked by her mistress to keep an eye on Sin, who has been acting stranger than normal lately, and given the order to eliminate him if it looks like he is about to try and seek his vengeance and make an attempt to kill Artemis! It is not long before Katra realizes that Sin will need help in his efforts to fight the demon threat. The tough bit will be convincing Sin of that fact as he is not eager to trust anyone with a connection to his greatest enemy! The story was a ton of fun. The Gallu demons were vicious enemies and there was plenty of tension as Kat and Sin fought against the clock to stop the most powerful of the demons from escaping their prison. The big plus for this book was that both Kat and Sin were more than human. Kat's home was on Olympus and she had a lot of powerful connections and friends to call upon. Her connection to Artemis also resulted in us seeing plenty of the Greek Goddess, Acheron, and most importantly Simi! Which was fun. As well as old favorite characters this book introduced a couple of interesting new characters. The first was Damien, the less evil than normal Daimon. The second was Xphyer, a more murderous than normal Skotos. Hopefully we will see more of them in the future. Despite the fact that both Katra and Sin were likable characters with fascinating back stories I felt their romance was a bit dull. They had the least chemistry of any pairing in the Dark-Hunter series so far and I even felt like some of the humor between the pair fell flat. The disappointing romance was only in minor flaw and it did not stop this being another really fun installment of the ever entertaining Dark-Hunter series. We got a few major revelations and developments in this book that will likely have a big impact on the coming books. Rating: 4 stars. Audio Note: This was narrated by Holter Graham. I though he did a decent job, but will admit that I prefer Fred Berman and Carrington MacDuffie. I totally missed Berman's interpretation of the Simi. Graham made her seem too normal!

    I LOVED it! Sin is a Sumerian Fertility God whos powers were removed by Artemis thousands of years ago. Katra is one of Artemis's Kori who is sent by Artemis to kill Sin. After traking him down, and getting to know him a bit, she finds all that Artemis says may not be the truth. Shocker. Katra finally gets to meet her father, Ash. Not many books make me cry, but I teared up when Ash finally learns of her existance after eleven thousand years, and gets to meet her. He is just so wonderful!

    Reviewed for THC Reviews "3.5 stars" This far along in the Dark-Hunter series, there are still things that I enjoy about it. The characters are usually likable and generally relatable, the Greek mythology woven into the stories is interesting, and the overall Dark-Hunter concept is intriguing.

However, lately, whenever I pick up one of Reviewed for THC Reviews "3.5 stars" This far along in the Dark-Hunter series, there are still things that I enjoy about it. The characters are usually likable and generally relatable, the Greek mythology woven into the stories is interesting, and the overall Dark-Hunter concept is intriguing. These things, as well as being a huge fan of Acheron and very much wanting to read his story, have kept me coming back and slowly working my way though the series. However, lately, whenever I pick up one of these books, I seem to have a harder and harder time getting past some of Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing quirks to really be able to enjoy the story she is telling. I know for a while there Ms. Kenyon was publishing an almost unbelievable number of novels and novellas per year (far more than most authors I read), and I think that the rapid pace at which she was writing these books shows through in the lack of quality. When I'm feeling like taking my red editor's pen to a book and rewriting passages in my head while reading, it isn't a good sign. Now that I'm a writer myself and learning the do's and don't's of writing, I keep seeing more and more writing no-no's in Ms. Kenyon's work. To begin with, her books tend to have a lot of repetitiveness not just from book to book, but within each individual book. The dialog can be a little too long-winded and often leans toward being cheesy and juvenile. With Ms. Kenyon being a huge Buffy, the Vampire Slayer fan, I think she's going for that kind of sarcasm, but sometimes just doesn't know when to reign it in. Also, most writers and editors I've talked with have said there should be no head-hopping, yet Ms. Kenyon does this constantly. Sometimes she switches between several different characters multiple times within a single chapter, which as a reader, can be frustrating to keep up with. Last but certainly not least, a large amount of the narrative prose in Devil May Cry was written in a passive voice with an overuse of “be” verbs which would probably explain a large part of why I didn't feel deeply connected to the characters. A few times, I experimented with rewriting some sentences in a more active voice and found that the narrative would have really popped if Ms. Kenyon and/or her editor had given more care to this process. Another issue I had with Devil May Cry was the number of poorly explained occurrences which seemed more like plot holes. Probably the most glaring one was Kat getting bitten by a gallu, but no one realizing it until she falls ill. Now the gallu are vicious demons, so I couldn't help wondering wouldn't Kat have known that she was bitten, and if she did, wouldn't she have told Sin, knowing how dangerous a gallu bite could be? Granted there were some intense and emotional scenes following the revelation, but overall, it seemed like a too-convenient set-up for bringing Ash into the mix and creating a permanent bond between Sin and Kat. Long after the fact, Kat finally acknowledges that she knew she'd been bitten but forgot. Really? How does one forget being bitten by a monstrous demon? I know I certainly wouldn't have, and in my opinion, this weak excuse made Kat look completely incompetent as a warrior goddess. I think Ms. Kenyon could have done a lot better with that one. Another thing that didn't make sense to me was that Kat said she could access Apollymi's powers, but at no point during the story did she do so. It seemed to me that if Kat could use the destroyer goddess's power, she probably could have wiped out the demon invasion all on her own, but for some unknown reason, it didn't work that way. These are just two of the more prominent things that left me scratching my head. This may be more of a personal preference, but I've always disliked Sherrilyn Kenyon's habit of introducing surprise powers or surprise characters with the needed powers to make things work out. It's almost like each and every book is nothing more than a series of mini deuce ex machina moments. It makes me feel like the characters don't have to work as hard for their victories, because there will always be a fail-safe. By the same token, I find it annoying when a character's powers and magical devices arbitrarily work or don't work to suit the story. An example of this is that Sin and Kat use a sfora given to her by Acheron to locate Sin's brother, Zakar, but when Zakar disappears again later, Sin and Kat just stand around for several pages wondering how they'll find him again, eventually coming to the conclusion that they'll just have to wait for him to return. I wanted to jump into the story and say, “Hello, use the sfora again!” Finally, they think of that, but then the device doesn't work for some unexplained reason. To me, relying on this type of storytelling is not only lazy, but it confuses the overall mythology of the series to the point that it's about as clear as mud. I never have any idea who can do what, because as soon as I try to figure it out, they're sure to find some untapped power source or their powers will quit working or some other equally ridiculous thing will happen. Up to this point, I know I've been pretty critical, so I'm going to try to add a few positives here. Even though I felt like they were somewhat underdeveloped as characters, I did like Sin and Kat as the hero and heroine. Although Sin's past wasn't brought out in as stark relief as some of the other tortured heroes in this series, he was a tormented soul nonetheless. I sympathized with him not trusting anyone because of having been betrayed so many times in his life. He was also robbed of most of his god-powers, and when he finds out who did that to him, he is understandably upset, although he does come around rather quickly in spite of it. Although she isn't officially a goddess, Kat wields more power than many of the gods. She is a tough girl who can handle herself pretty well, but at the same time she has great compassion for humanity. When Kat's parentage was revealed, I guess it wasn't too surprising, but at the same time, I had very mixed feeling about her mother's and father's identities, mainly because I didn't really want these two characters connected in that way. However, I can't say much more about that without giving away a big spoiler. Sin and Kat made a nice couple, but I can't say that I felt a deep connection between them. As with most of the stories in the Dark-Hunter series, their relationship develops within a matter of days which is just a little too quick to be entirely believable to me. There were some touching moment between them, but oftentimes I felt like their deeper emotions were being skimmed over and not given the weight they deserved. Their first love scene was good, but ended a bit too abruptly and without enough payoff, considering that it was Kat's first time. Also, and this is another personal preference, I wasn't overly fond of the way Sin and Kat (and other characters throughout the series) simply zap their clothes on and off at will when in the heat of passion. Initially, it was kind of cool, but Sherrilyn Kenyon has done it so much now that it's starting to loose its novelty. In my opinion, not having the characters take their time undressing each other, takes away valuable moments for foreplay and the building of sexual tension. Probably the best thing about Devil May Cry was Acheron. We get to learn several more things about his past, probably in preparation for his story. The scenes where he imparts his wisdom to Kat and expresses his own regrets about the way that he treated Nick were among some of the best in the book. These scenes actually had some depth to them and proved to me that Sherrilyn Kenyon can write deeply moving material that isn't constantly filled with breezy one-liners. This gives me hope that Ash's book will be better than Devil May Cry and some of the other more recent offerings in the Dark-Hunter series. I've come to the conclusion that you can't have a Dark-Hunter book without revisiting many previous characters. Other secondary characters who showed up include Artemis, although I have to say that I wasn't entirely pleased with the direction her character was taken in this book. She has always been a character that I love to hate for the way she has treated Ash, but here Ms. Kenyon couldn't seem to decide whether Artemis was going to be a selfish witch or sympathetic. The softer side of Artemis that was shown here in a few scenes is very difficult for me to reconcile with the vengeful goddess who beats Ash and uses him as a sex slave. The other characters who put in appearances are Apollymi; the Charonte demons, Simi and Xirena; the Dream-Hunter leaders, D'Alerian, M'Adoc, and M'Ordant; and Deimos, the Dolophoni. Wulf and Cassandra (Kiss of the Night) have a brief phone conversation with Kat, and Stryker (One Silent Night) puts in a cameo at the end. We are also introduced to Xypher, a rather intriguing Dream-Hunter, who becomes the hero of Dream Chaser. Devil May Cry had enough issues to annoy me, but in spite of that, it was still mostly entertaining which is why I didn't rate it any lower. I simply had to work hard at trying to ignore the glaring holes and writing that wasn't quite up to par, and just enjoy the ride for what it was. It was still better then some books I've read, and I do plan to continue with the series for the time being. Even though it might be difficult to reign in my criticisms, I'm invested enough at this point that I can't turn back at least until I've reached Acheron. Just two more book to go.:-)

    I just don't know what to say. The publisher STUPIDLY decided to change narrators and it was a terrible mistake! This narrator was wooden. He did not even voice Simi, my favorite character, even close to how she sounded before. She sounded like a normal woman. What a huge difference this makes! Overall the story was at least a bit different. That kept it interesting. But I found myself getting more and more frustrated by Ash and Aretmis. To the point I pretty much dislike them both.

Overall the story was at least a bit different. That kept it interesting. But I found myself getting more and more frustrated by Ash and Aretmis. To the point I pretty much dislike them both. Her for very obvious reasons and him for putting up with it, having no spine or balls and continuing a sexual relationship with a pit viper. It makes me sick. There was one occasion where she bargained more time with him. He did not have to make that bargain. He held the cards. I can only say he wants to be abused. Wants to be her sex slave. His actions do not show me anything different. He is all talk, but zero action. This totally spoiled the book for me. I am skipping straight to Acheron so I can finally see if he scrapes the bitch off in a satisfying way. Otherwise, I think I need to scrap this series. Sin was stiff and boring and bitter. Plus he was a drunk. I respected his devotion to his brother and his cause. But he folded like a house of cards for Artemis so he lost points. He also let Katya off the hook for lying to him. I am not sure I agree with that. The girl has serious bad genes and has already proven to be untrustworthy and totally a puppet to Artemis. I just could not get into his character. Katya was a bitch disguised as a good girl. I know most people liked her and she was not terrible, but her unwavering support of her mother (Artemis), knowing all she knows, makes me lose all respect for her. Trying to assure herself that daddy loves mommy? TSTL!!!! Best - but saddest - scene in the book was Katya and Ash meeting. But I was so angry with him for blaming himself - rather than the bitch goddess - I could not get into it.

    I'm torn on how to review this. On one hand, this is a good story. It's exciting, has an interesting plot, and a wide range of a variety of characters. However, if you (like me) are hoping for a good romance, a good love story - you are S.O.L. Two immortal, all-powerful beings fall in love with each other. Actually, they don't. I use the term 'fall in love' extremely loosely. They basically meet each other and decide they want to have sex with each other - NOT the same as love, in my opinion.

I use the term 'fall in love' extremely loosely. They basically meet each other and decide they want to have sex with each other - NOT the same as love, in my opinion. The best things were the side characters: Simi and her sister Xirena; Xypher - who I think is going to be our next bad-ass, like Zarek; and Kish. These characters' dialogue and presence added some much-needed spice to the book. This is very much a 'Kenyon world-building' book and for that reason the romance and love plot suffers greatly. I don't have a single status update posted from this book. That should tell you everything you need to know. P.S. I almost forgot the part that really pissed me off!!!! Kenyon is trying to convince me that 11,000-year-old Katra is a virgin. And not only a virgin as in I've-never-had-any-sort-of-sexual-contact-not-even-a-kiss-with-a-man, but also someone who has never, ever masturbated or touched herself. After 11,000 years!?!?!?!? Are you freakin' kidding me. There's no flippin' way that happened. NO FLIPPIN' WAY. Not to mention that it BOGGLES MY MIND why a goddess with unimaginable powers would keep her hymen intact. WHY? Just for a little extra excitement during sex or something? Just for shits and giggles or what? BEYOND RIDICULOUS. You're stretching the limits of my credulity to the breaking point, Kenyon. 2 REAL STARS, 2 ROMANCE STARS

Ash finally knows he has a kid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!🤯😍❤ Smart of Artemis to make him promise to never kill her. Kind of mad about that though. Sometimes she deserves to die. I loved the end bit where Sin was eager to make Artemis sad/mad about her being a grandmother! 🤣 The gallu demons are ferocious. I'm glad they are mostly defeated. MOSTLY.

    I absolutely loved it, my fave of all of the Dark Hunter books so far. Katra is a phenomenal heroine – I loved everything about her. She’s witty and sarcastic, and uber-powerful, and I love the way she handles everything that goes down in the story. Same with the oh-so-hot and tortured Alpha hero, Sin. And the two of them together were absolute dynamite. There was intense chemistry from the beginning, and brilliant banter throughout.

And the two of them together were absolute dynamite. There was intense chemistry from the beginning, and brilliant banter throughout. And they had a great partnership, both of them battling together to save the world (literally). Simi is back in the action, there is a little bit of Hades (even in a cameo – still love him!), and Artie is still a bitch, although we do get to see a softer side to her. And the Dream Hunter, Xypher is introduced, can’t wait for his story! And Acheron!! There is so much Ash in this book (including more of his backstory), and it’s freaking awesome. HE is freaking awesome! I can’t gush enough about him – wise, tender, caring and kickass. We see it all in this book, and more! The storyline in this book is a little different from others in the series where we are introduced to new bad guys – gallu demons, who Sin has been battling on his own for centuries (with a little help from Ash of course). They have a plan to destroy mankind, and it’s up to a small group of heroes to save the world (again!) in a very exciting and action packed finale. This book also contains the mother of all bombshells and I’m not ashamed to say that when I read it I became a gushing, squeeing moron (seriously - I was in a room with my sleeping children at the time, and I squeed so loud I woke one of them up). Followed shortly thereafter by me being reduced to a blubbering idiot! A happy blubbering idiot though. If you read this book and it does not make you tear up even a little bit – then you clearly have no heart. WARNING – AS TEMPTING AS IT MAY BE DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK!!! SERIOUSLY, IT WILL RUIN SO MUCH! (view spoiler)[ The whole scene where Acheron and Katra meet will be forever burned into my brain, and these parts in particular had me in floods of tears... “Have you had a good life?” he asked in a gentle tone. That single question only made her cry harder as she nodded. “I only wanted for one thing.” “And that was?” “You.” Ash couldn’t breathe as his own tears fell from his eyes ... “Can I hug you?” Ash held his arms out, and before he could move she ran to him. The feel of her there as he wrapped his arms around her rattled him to the depths of his soul. This was his daughter. His true flesh and blood. A wave of possessive pride ripped through him, but the love he felt for her was enough to almost drown him ... “I love you, Dad” Ash let out a sob as pain wracked him. Sob, sob! Absolutely magic. (hide spoiler)] When I first started reading this series I didn’t think it would compare to my favourite PNR series like the BDB, Fever and the Night Huntress books, but now… OMG! I can’t believe how strongly I feel for these characters. Their stories are epic and all woven together so brilliantly. I hear terrible rumours of people skipping books in this series, and all I can say is DON’T!!! So much happens in each book, and although it may not seem like it at the time, it all fits together. I’m just gobsmacked at the whole concept of this world and how everything fits. It’s incredible! And the anticipation building for Ash’s book is phenomenal! His story is really starting to come together now and I just know his book is going to totally wreck me, and I can’t wait for it!!!

    3.5 stars I'm not quite sure how to review this book. I enjoyed many parts of it....and others just annoyed me. The Sin/Kat story was very interesting. I love how certain characters just know that they've fallen in love fast and hard. What I didn't like was how Acheron was instantly a father and how his daughter kept calling him daddy. (Don't boo me yet..) I know that he is Simi's "dad" but I just felt that that type of intimacy between a father and daughter came a little to fast for me.

And as far as the level of sarcasm in this particular book....It was on the borderline of being over the top corny. Artemis *grrrrrr* She is a heifer goddess!!!

And the silly bickering back and forth between them through-out....i found it to be juvenile, and annoying.

    This book was recommended to me, but I guess I should have started at the beginning of the series. I was fascinated by Kat, who has the strength and courage of a true kick-ass heroine.

Also Appollomy's granddaughter since Acheron is Appollomy's son. Now we know why Kat served Artemis and Appolomy. Kat's powers are like a conductor where she can be used to take powers from a god. Sin is an ex-god (fertility god) that Artemis hates but Acheron saved his life along time ago, Sin is not a darkhunter but he is used to kill the other evil called gallu instead of the deamons like Str Kat and Sin's story was awesome.

Simi (I love her and her BBQ sauce)and her sister had more action in this story and so did the dream gods. Even Hades helped Kat and Sin. Acheron bonds Sin and Kat together after Kat is bitten by the gallu and there is no way to cure her, so Acheron drains all her blood and has Sin give her his blood - turning her into a vampire where she can only live by feeding off of Sin. In the end, I think it is funny how instead of Sin wanting revenge against Artemis for taking his powers away from him, that now his revenge is falling inlove with her daughter, becoming Kat's mate, and seeing Artemis face when he tells her that she's going to be a grandma now that Sin and Kat are going to have a baby. I absolutely love it. I really enjoyed this book.

    The seventh addition to Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. Katra, the daughter of Artemis and Acheron, is sent to kill Sin Nanna, a Sumerian fertility god that Artemis betrayed. Artemis believes that Sin is getting ready to come after her for revenge. But Katra finds that Sin has another agenda that needs to be taken care.

    Seriously, this has to be my favorite of the series. I would NOT recommend reading this book first, but for anyone who has followed along over the years-this book answers questions, gives more insight into main characters (like Ash) and just is a fantastic read. It's classic Kenyon but with SO much more and leaves you dying waiting for the next book to come out. This is a book I will probably wind up reading a billion times over because it was THAT GOOD.

Suffice to say i finished this in record time and loved every minute, its also nice to finally see a little chink in Artemis's armor...... Yea huge 5 stars!

    4.5/5.0 This is probably my favorite in this series since Kenyon strayed from the original Dark Hunters. Both Katra and Sin are characters one can absolutely fall in love with - and undoubtably will! Both are members of the God's pantheons, both know and have lived with both the good and bad that entails. Where Katra was essentially loved and cared for, however, Sin has seen the very worst of what the Gods can do.

While Sin is bent of vengeance and trusts no one, Katra's overwhelming love and compassion is his perfect foil that makes this story an almost perfect romance. The books are getting so cluttered with back-storys from previous installments, however, that enjoying this as a stand-alone would be nearly impossible. Even for one having read the previous offerings, it is becoming confusing keeping everyone straight - and I'm only half way through the series! While I absolutely love the continuing story lines of Acheron, Simi etc., veering into the plotlines of dream hunters, ever-increasing demon races, not to mention the growing plethora of gods, semi-gods, executioner gods, banished gods (the list goes on and on) is getting a little overwhelming. I do find myself longing for the beautiful simplicity of the men that made up the original Dark Hunters.

    Great read! Sin is positively SINFUL.............Kat and Sin are great together BUT more importantly.............what happened between Kat and Ash took top honors in this book...........it was heartwarming, very sweet and was glad to read Ash getting just a little bit of happiness. Artemis is such a cold hearted, self centered, selfish, lying, no conscience BITCH and I hope somewhere in the rest of this series she gets whats coming to her. On to the next one............................

    Sumerian god, Sin was betrayed by Artemis who took his godhood. For centuries Sin has been biding his time waiting to exact revenge and he is getting closer to reclaiming his power and killing Artemis. However, the gallu are back and ready to destroy every human they come into contact with which is causing a distraction towards his overall goal.

Sin has a major chip on his shoulder but he is a seductive hero who you want to learn more about. Katra was amazing and I loved her whole story. Amazing read.

    I loved this hero Sin - absolutely gorgeous, Sumerian, and tortured of course ;) Sin has curly black hair, topaz lion-like eyes, and due to his heritage, darkly tanned skin. What an awesome combination! I have a weakness for Italian/Latin/Middle Eastern...basically, anything exotic, and Sin is it! Sin is similar to past Dark-Hunters I've loved in that he's shunned by the Dark-Hunter community and misunderstood (think Zarek and Valerius).

What an awesome combination! I have a weakness for Italian/Latin/Middle Eastern...basically, anything exotic, and Sin is it! Sin is similar to past Dark-Hunters I've loved in that he's shunned by the Dark-Hunter community and misunderstood (think Zarek and Valerius). The book starts off with Sin taking the heroine Kat prisoner and then nearly killing her due to mistaken identity. Sin mistakes Kat for her mother, Artemis, who stole his godhood centuries ago. Once the identities are cleared up, Sin and Kat, along with some other fun characters, team up to save the world from doom. Sin and Kat must overcome major obstacles as Kat's true role in Sin's loss of godhood is eventually revealed. And for Ash lovers like myself, you get to see his tender relationship with his daughter develop, as well as Ash in hungry blood-lust mode with blue skin and extended incisors - yup, he joins in on this battle, too ;) Devil May Cry also introduces Xypher, a Skoti ("a rogue Dream Hunter that alters dreams to enhance their borrowed emotions") that is the hero in Kenyon's subsequent book, Dream Chaser. Having been physically tortured for centuries by Hades for apparently driving hundreds of people to madness and death through their dreams, he has absolutely no trust for anyone...which is why I'm reading his story next - Kenyon rocks! One more thing - I read this book via CD, and I'll never do that with a Dark-Hunter novel again - it took waaay too long = 11 hours or something? and the reader referred to Ash as "Ah-ke-ron"...on the plus side, the reader was a guy and his version of Sin was sexy as hell - which is why I stuck through it ;D
