Authors website

Live fast, fight hard and, if you have to die, then take as many of your enemies with you as you can. That is the Amazon credo and it was one Samia lived and died by. Now in contemporary New Orleans, the immortal Amazon warrior is about to learn that there’s a worse evil coming to slaughter mankind than she’s ever faced before.

Shapeshifter Dev Peltier has stood guard at the front of Sanctuary for almost two hundred years and in that time, he’s seen it all. Or so he thought. Now their enemies have discovered a new source of power--one that makes a mockery of anything faced to date.

The war is on and Dev and Sam are guarding ground zero. But in order to win, they will have to break the most cardinal of all rules and pray it doesn’t unravel the universe as we know it.



As a huge Dark-Hunter fan this one didn’t cut it with me. I was very disappointed. Again this one is nothing like the books pre Acheron. I wish if the books are going to keep up with this pace Kenyon would go ahead and finish the series.

Again you get a lot of new of new characters you have to keep up with like this series doesn’t have enough then there is the added of all the different new gods and new demons. Like does anyone know who Lazarous is? There is so much Mythology going on that I forget who is who in a year, so anyone really needs a guide in each book of who is who.

What I was most disappointed with is the sex and romance you get a couple halfway scenes and you remember the mating scene you get with the were- hunters? Well its not in this one, so you miss that too Garr……

Then there is the lack of detail in a lot of different scenes. It would leave one that just picked up this book with out reading the rest of the series going WHAT! This book left me questing more than I should.

Then there is Nick when is Kenyon going to let him grow up and take what happens to him as life not someone else fault..

Now as for Sam and Dev they are very good together if their romance was let grow it would have been fantastic. Sam and Dev were fun the way they would cut up with each other but again you really don’t read them as much as you should its everyone else.

Stryker is as always up to no good, so you get lots of action and plenty of blood. I just hope book twenty will be better. I really feel like the Dark Hunters has been put on the back burner.

As I keep thinking about this book the more I don’t like it. It just seems to me Kenyon is letting Nick get the upper hand to where he is going to take Acheron place. Acheron even make a statement in this book that “Nick may one day kill him“. But what gets my goat the most is I know Ash has had a bad past life those of you that read his book knows what he went through and he never wanted a D-H to know about it, now all the sudden things are popping out one is Sam now knows Acheron was a whore. It just makes me feel like Kenyon is going to somehow take Acheron down and its not going to be good and I not going to be reading that one at all.
Spoilers stop
