    I can't believe it took me this long to pick up these books. The name Sherrilyn Kenyon is practically synonymous with Paranormal Romance. I saw this two for one bundle, and figured I'd try out the pair to see what all the fuss was about. The experience left me largely torn. There were some wonderful aspects of these books, and one really bad facet that made me want to throw things. What I liked: The characters. I dug them, a lot.

The experience left me largely torn. There were some wonderful aspects of these books, and one really bad facet that made me want to throw things. What I liked: The characters. I dug them, a lot. In fact, I think if anything keeps me coming back to this series, it will be to figure out what happens to Acheron. I was hugely intrigued by his character, more so than the hero/heroine in each book. Nick was another secondary character I loved. Kenyon can definitely spin a character that makes me interested, which is a big, huge plus. The idea. I really liked the premise of soulless heroes brought back from death to defend humans from demons. Learning about the heroes' histories was another plus. I enjoyed that historical aspect to each of her books. I also love the nods to various types of mythology. What I disliked: Head hopping. These books are the mother of all head hoppers. The constant, abrupt shifts, sometimes several times within a scene made me endlessly annoyed. My real frustration is that if it weren't for this one thing, these would be the best paranormal romance I've read this year. I can only hope that someone eventually told her how aggravating this was to some people and later on down the series it gets better. Lack of antagonist motivation. It seemed like, in these two books at least, the bad guys were just being bad to create chaos. I guess that's okay, but I like my evil a little more sinister I guess, rather than just bad for the sake of it. Originally I'd decided on four stars, but writing about the head hopping made me so angry I changed my mind to three. Rest assured, it's somewhere between three and four and the actual number depends on my mood the instant I post this. I will keep reading (at least for a few books) because I like her characters and the world she's building. This is a must read for paranormal romance fans, and very high on the vampire smut scale, all things considered. If head hopping bothers you, maybe stay away.

    Night Pleasures Estou a adorar o Kyrian. É engraçado, quando um personagem principal é depois secundário noutro volume parece que perde a piada… Quando “conheci” o Kyrian no Seize the Night não parecia mesmo o atrevido que é neste livro. Sabes quem ele me faz lembrar? O Sawyer, da série Perdidos. Acho que é mesmo a cara chapada, por assim dizer, com aquele jeito safado. E agora foi esquisito ler o Kyrian e o Julian a falarem mal do Valerius, uma vez que já li a história do Valerius (o Seize) e as Night Pleasures Estou a adorar o Kyrian.

E agora foi esquisito ler o Kyrian e o Julian a falarem mal do Valerius, uma vez que já li a história do Valerius (o Seize) e as coisas não são como eles pensam… Esta série consegue mesmo criar laços com os personagens, por isso é tão envolvente e faz com que leia mais. Night Embrace Cada vez estou mais fascinada com o Ash. Tenho mesmo de ler o livro dele logo que saia em Agosto! A Artemis é má... Espero k não seja ela a ficar com ele. Mas nunca se sabe, como eles tiveram uma história no passado (k eu ainda não sei o k se passou...)... Ah, eles são todos personagens maravilhosos. O Nick então, sempre a pedir aumento de salário, prémios e subsídios... Uma coisa que gostei muito é que a personagem feminina é a reencarnação da amada do Tallon, o personagem masculino. Às vezes é um bocado cliché demais quando eles afinal amam mais esta mulher do que a anterior, que os traiu e não os amava a sério. Credo, estes gajos vivem milhares de anos, sem terem uma mulher k os ame a sério? Com tantos anos, dava tempo para poderem amar duas ou mais vezes, sem que o amor pela(s) mulher(es) do passado fosse menor do que o amor pela actual…

    Exciting entertainment I love the characters Keyon creates. Zarek being one of my faves as his and Acheron’s begins to come out. When I’m done with one book..., I can’t wait to read the next in line. I just wish the few, but distracting grammatical errors would go away. Hire me as your proof reader!

    This is the fist book in Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. First, let me say that I am not thrilled with the title. It is one of those generic, could apply to almost any romance novel titles. It is like the title of a Steven Seagal movie. Executive Decision, Out of Reach, Above The LawThey just sound hard and actiony with no real relation to what the action story is.

As far as this story is concerned, it is really a by the numbers romance novel with paranormal elements thrown in. The writing isn't particularly spectacular. It is what Simon Cowell would say "just ok." What keeps me reading this series is the paranormal element she has introduced. I like the idea of the Greek Gods and goddesses alive and well and involved in human events. And I also like the idea that these Dark Hunters are created from a vow of vengeance at the time of a death by betrayal. And that the Gods are portrayed very much in the way they are portrayed in classical literature as very omnipotent beings who sometimes treat humans as nothing more than chess pieces and are themselves quite selfish. I do wish that the whole vampire angle hadn't also been included because frankly vampires are very been there and done that with the proliferation of paranormal romances out there. At least the Gods/Goddesses angle and the whole purpose of the Dark Hunters was something different.

    One of the local used bookstores had their annual sale last week. Needing some serious retail therapy, I picked up all sorts of stuff I'd never heard about. I picked up this book for $1 and it was a dollar well spent.

Some of the support characters I found more interesting than the constant mental descriptions of all the "yummy" Adonis-described warriors. I'm actually going to do some searches to see if I can look them up in other books in her series. Then, I may search that used bookstore again. Who knows what I'll find? Either way, I think I've found my next summer read author.

    3.5 stars for this book!! I was slightly disappointed with this installment in the series, only bc I loved the first one so much. Although I loved Talon's character and his back-story (past)), I wasnt crazy about the plot in this book. Talon's past is riddled with heartache and loss. That much was undeniable. And I truly enjoyed his personality and strength. Please, don't misunderstand me. I flew thru the pages, wanting to know what was going to happen next.

But, what I enjoyed most from this book was the fact that it gave me more of an insight on the other Dark-Hunters. It teased me with bits and pieces about their past and their personalities. Thus, making me even more excited about the other books in this series, which I can't wait to read.

    I'm glad I am starting the entire series. I really liked Night Pleasures, it was interesting to read about Amanda and Kyrian and their first encounter and how things ended. I was aghast at Desiderius and his trickery to get to Kyrian and his vast knowledge of Kyrian's weaknesses. However, much to my chagrin, Amanda delightfully stepped up to help him overcome his main weakness and be able to triumph over Desiderius. The ending was good, typical ending I've come to expect.

    I'm restarting the series!! I absolutely love this series and I miss it so I decided I am going re-read the whole series.

    These novels and the ones that precede them in the series have been on my Kindle for months. I struggled with Fantasy Lover (because I read a review that said it the storyline was archaic. Dragonswan was short and sweet. I love stories with the ordinary woman and the drop dead hunk of a man in them. Then I get the compilation with Night Pleasures and Night Embrace. Totally enjoyed them. I thought they were fun and sexy. And oh my holy Acheron. I have to keep reading to get to his book.

    This book is one of the better dark Hunter series, it told a lot about other dark hunters pasts and futures, I truly loved reading how Vane and Bride first met! Loved reading about Zarek and I was even surprised to read about Styxx! I loved the two main characters Talon and Sunshine! As usual with reading Sherrilyn Kennon books there was a lot of humor in it so I often laughed out loud! Must read!!

    The Book Junkie Reads . . .

    Night Pleasures is my formal introduction into the world of Dark Hunters. This family of females and their friends have me wanting much more of this series just to see what will result. Not to mention the very hot men gracing the pages. Night Embrace has me begging for more Dark Hunter and Acheron. Sunshine Runningwolf makes one of the baddest Dark hunters in the land come to heel.

    No... Už chápu, co Sherrilyn Kenyonová znamená pro paranormální romance, ale ať je to jak chce, stejně mám raději knížky od J. R. Ward. Tohle bylo hezké, nenáročné, často docela vtipné, ale jinak prostě relativně dost hloupoučká harlekýnka, což by nevadilo, kdyby.... opět... nebylo tý poslední kapitoly! :D sakra už

    note: Ingat kesamaan dari novel series Dark Hunter adalah kekejaman di masa lalu tokoh pria menjadi titik awal mengapa tokoh tersebut menjadi pribadi demikian agak2 ragu karena cover beda dengan yang aslinya, tapi sepertinya ini sama deh..jadi dianggap sama aja lah yah,,hahahahha alurnya lebih bagus dari novel pertama. sangat romantis deh si Kyrian of Thrace..pengen punya cowo kyk dia deh:-))

    Night Pleasures is the story of Kyrian a Dark Hunter who is "mad, bad, and immortal." He meets Amanda who not only helps him find his soul but becomes a power sorceror in her own right. Now on to read the other one in the book...

    There is a lot of paranormal going on, but overall the two stories (double edition) seemed relatively the same and the dialogue was forced, dumbed down...idk. With a series this large, I'm hoping it gets better than these two books.

    These books a just easy to read paranormal romance, the story lines are good enough but a lot of them are dedicated to sex and the wanting of each other and soulmates, i sometimes feel like im intruding on them but it is a sweet likeable story and i will read the series

    Amazing as always I gave this review 5 stars because I believe both of these books deserve it. I love the imagery installed on every page and the heart wrenching tales throughout both books. As always, very well done!

    I read this so long ago. I am a big fan of Ms. Kenyon. The story is about Kyrian of Thrace. The second one is about Talon. Both men are loyal and alpha males. Both are delicious reads to whisk a reader away into a great fantasy.
