    Wulf Tryggvase Hunter Cassandra Elaine Peters Apollite Why Wulf become a dark hunter His story is a bit different from the rest of the dark hunters He looked for someone to sooth his pain after his brother died Morginne a dark huntress was his one night stand lover who during their sexual encounter traded souls with him Her lover Norse god Loki helped her Moreover Morginne cursed him that nobody mortal would remember him Cassandra An Apollite princess waiting to die in less than a year and who does not really want to dieShe falls in love with Wulf because 'life is too short' He falls in love with Cassandra because she can remember him for than 5 minutesOne thing I loved The way Wulf looks after Chris Wulf's last heir For example one time Wulf brought Britney Spears to sing at Chris's 21st birthday Then he urged Chris to make a pass at Britney and propose to her Britney of course laughedSettings Minessota This book shows that in this series anything can happen even become pregnant in your dreams Just awesome You cannot help feeling sorry for Apollites the enemies of Dark Hunters; and you cannot help forgivingFavourite uote My scent on your skin Yours on mine Most of all I like knowing that in the morning you'll remember what we did tonight and you'll still know my name

    One of my least favorites so far It was too much like the latest Black Dagger Brotherhood where they were just sitting around crying about the girl's imminent death So you are cursed to die at 27 Waa waa waaa I don't see why I have to suffer by reading about how sad you are that you will never get to watch your child grow up It's so unfair To meSo in this book we have Wulf who's kind of a racist; and Cassandra who is the race that Wulf hates They meet and he impregnates her in a dream Talk about a trope The old got pregnant in a dream routine If I had a dollar for every time I have read that tired old story I would have a dollar nowCassandra is special though mmmhmmm She is the last of the bloodline of the god Apollo so if she dies he dies for some reason And if the sun god dies the sun dies because science And if the sun dies everything diesreality sucksSo keeping Cassandra alive until she can have a baby that carries on her bloodline is very important now And of course there are some bad guys that are trying to kill her Hey bad guys Remember the everyone will die if she dies thing That includes youThere are good parts of this book that are less whiny though Ash is doing weird and awesome stuff and we get to learn a lot about the Apolites and Daimons Turns out it's kind of sad that the Apolites are cursed to die at 27 and maybe becoming Daimon is a desperate attempt to survive It's almost reasonableview spoiler One thing that annoyed the crap out of me was when Ash tells them to exchange blood and she will live and become immortal and they decide that they can't do it Seriously I would drink my husband's blood right now if it meant saving his life And then I would bathe in the blood of my enemies Bwuahaha Oh sorry got carried away there hide spoiler

    Reviewed for THC ReviewsSherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series has been rather hit and miss with me and although I can't say that Kiss of the Night was the best book I've read in the series so far it was pretty good overall That's not to say that I didn't do uite a bit of eye rolling during the first half of the story because there were certainly some things that provoked my incredulity even for a fantasy world There are things that happened which I felt stretched the bounds of credibility even of what had previously been revealed about Dark Hunter mythology Ms Kenyon seems to have a penchant for making things occur for the convenience of the plot that she then does not explain very well I don't really care much for this as a story telling style because it seems too lazy to me While it is readily apparent that Ms Kenyon has a vivid imagination I sometimes wish she would reign it in a little to give her world a bit clarity Normally I avoid giving away major spoilers for the books I read but I had serious issues with two of the main plot points in Kiss of the Night that I felt needed to be addressed so if readers don't want to be spoiled don't read this paragraph of my review SPOILER ALERT First Wulf apparently did not become a Dark Hunter in the usual way ie Artemis became the keeper of his soul upon his death and he is given one act of vengeance and immortality in exchange for a lifetime of service to her Instead Wulf apparently never died but made some kind of soul switch with a Dark Huntress who he slept with all those centuries ago This never made any sense to me at all because Dark Hunters don't have a soul to switch in the first place Then it was stated that Wulf still had a soul which is why he wasn't bound to Artemis in the same way as other Dark Hunters but in the end Acheron said his soul was being held by the Norse god Loki All this was incredibly confusing to me and I finally gave up trying to figure it all out The second thing I took issue with is the first two love scenes of the book that resulted in Cassandra's subseuent pregnancy Wulf and Cassandra's love making was apparently completely engineered by Artemis and took place inside their dreams without them knowing that it was “for real” Since neither of them was a consciously willing participant this kind of weirded me out The other thing that bothered me about all this was that Wulf was able to impregnate Cassandra in a dream How on earth did that happen Also Wulf believed himself sterile since all Dark Hunters are supposed to be but he conveniently had one of those loopholes I mentioned The idea that he didn't know he was able to father children and had likely had numerous unprotected sexual encounters for the last twelve centuries yet had never gotten a single woman pregnant really stretched the bounds of my ability to suspend disbelief I was also a bit annoyed that early in the story Ms Kenyon's answer to Wulf's soul switch was merely “some things are inexplicable” and as to Cassandra getting pregnant in a dream she had a secondary character make a flippant comment about this being fantasy not reality I began to wonder if the author was just poking fun but I really need for things like this to make sense even in the fantasy realm and not just be left unexplained END SPOILER ALERTBy the second half of the book there was less focus on the two above issues so I was able to put them on the back burner and just enjoy the rest the story for what it was There was uite a bit of excitement with Wulf and Cassandra going on the run from the evil Spathi Daimons the occurrence of a blessed event and the uest to find a “cure” for Cassandra's curse that would leave her dead on her next birthday which was only a matter of months away I thought the action scenes improved a bit and weren't uite as B movie cheesy as they had been earlier and with Wulf and Cassandra's consciousnesses fully engaged the love scenes were much better for me too I loved how Ms Kenyon brought back all the main Dark Hunters from the previous books to help Wulf in his hour of need but what I liked most about this half of the book is all the depth that was added to the Apollites and Daimons Up to this point they have been the mortal enemies of the Dark Hunters and somewhat demonized as the bad guys With Cassandra being half Apollite readers get a whole new perspective on her race and are given a lot of food for thought about what constitutes true evil versus someone doing something that seems evil for the sake of survival It made me wonder if this union between an Apollite and a Dark Hunter may be the beginning of something bigger happening in the overarching plotline of the seriesAs for the hero and heroine Wulf and Cassandra I liked them but I thought they needed a little something to make them stand out Wulf was a Viking warrior who has some regrets about certain choices he made before becoming immortal and has had to bear the burden of watching all his brother's descendants his only blood kin die for the last twelve centuries until he now only has one relative left Wulf also bears the curse that no one can remember him five minutes after he leaves the room except the Dark Hunters and humans who are related to him by blood so he has lived a pretty lonely existence Once Cassandra was able to remember him another one of those convenient loopholes I felt like the author dropped the ball a bit on this and it might have been interesting to see of how this curse affected him Although it was another of those things that was sketchy and confusing to me apparently Cassandra is the last direct descendant of Apollo's bloodline and there is a prophecy that if she dies all Apollites and Daimons will be freed from their curse hence why they are both hunting her What they don't know though is that if she dies the world will end too Cassandra has lived her entire life running from the Daimons and has watched all her family members except her human father die at their hands Now she is trying to find a way to extend her unnaturally short lifespan of a mere 27 years Cassandra is also a brave warrior in her own right and takes an admirable “glass half full” approach to life Overall Wulf and Cassandra's relationship was nice with some tender moments between them that I liked but I still wasn't able to entirely buy into their love connection I think things just happened too uickly in the beginning and there weren't enough deeper relationship building scenes to really make their romance spark off the pages for meAs with all the Dark Hunter books there are tons of secondary characters both old and new The characters from previous stories who appear in Kiss of the Night include Acheron Simi Artemis Talon Night Embrace Spawn first seen in Dance with the Devil Julian Fantasy Lover Kyrian Night Pleasures and Zarek Dance with the Devil who I was glad to see has not lost his anti social nature and sardonic wit Two new characters who become the heroes of future stories were introduced Dante a were panther whose story can be found in Winter Born from the Stroke of Midnight anthology; and Stryker the leader of the Spathi Daimons whose story is One Silent Night although he behaved so evilly in Kiss of the Night it will be interesting to see how the author manages to redeem him There were several other interesting supporting characters who made a first appearance At this time they don't have their own stories but I hope to perhaps see of them through the course of the series Urian Stryker's son; D'Aria the first female Dream Hunter; and Kat Cassandra's mysterious bodyguard whose real identity was left hanging I reread the ending than once but it seemed that she simply disappeared not long after Ash had said something which put her true alliances into uestion Last but not least was Chris Wulf's suire and last living relative I loved him because he's funny geeky and totally irreverent toward Wulf and since I adore geeks I wouldn't have minded seeing an HEA for him tooIn my opinion Sherrilyn Kenyon has a tendency to introduce a lot of new characters and mythology instead of effectively utilizing what she already has on the canvas often making me feel like I need a Dark Hunter encyclopedia to keep up I can't say that I'm really getting used to it being this way but I think I'm coming to expect it which may be making it a little easier to take The plot of Kiss of the Night was a little thin especially during the first half making it a little slow moving but the second half held my attention well and made me warm up to the story and characters I think this was meant to be something of a transition book with it's main purpose being the addition of details to the Apollite and Daimon mythology I actually enjoyed this because unlike some of Ms Kenyon's other myth add ons I felt like this greatly expanded the character development of these races rather than just being there for the sake of the plot Kiss of the Night is book #4 in the Dark Hunter series but it essentially takes place simultaneously with Night Embrace and Dance with the Devil and then expands upon that time frame In fact Kiss of the Night has a near word for word replay of the phone conversation between Wulf and Talon from the beginning of Night Embrace as well as the mention of some of the major events from those two books Even though I had some problems with Kiss of the Night it was entertaining enough to be generally enjoyable and I plan to continue with the series In any case I'll likely keep going at least until I reach Acheron because I simply must know the mystery behind the enigma that is Ash There are currently a total of 19 full length novels in the Dark Hunter series and uite a number of related novellas and graphic novels as well with still to come A complete list of all the books and their recommended reading order can be found on Sherrilyn Kenyon's websiteReview updated 92710

    After the big high of Reading Zarek's book Dance With The Devil I was sure I had turned a corner with this series Up to Zarek's book I've not been overly impressed with the writing or the romance elements but have really enjoyed the Dark Hunter mythos the background with the Gods and the ongoing mystery of just what the heck is ArcheronSo I was ready to curl up and enjoy this one Instead up until the very end I was totally bored What I enjoyed the most about the previous books the Dark Hunters was largely missing here This story centers on Cassandra a half Appolitehalf human woman who is one of the last descendants of Appollo Amongst the DaimonAppolite community there is a belief that if the last of Appollo's line is killed they'd all be freed from this curse So all her life Cassandra's family have been running from Appollites and Daimons and learning how to fight and survive Wulf the Dark Hunter in this story is one whose presence is forgotten by people after five minutes Only other Dark Hunters and people of his own bloodline his last surviving nephew can remember him for any length of time Wulf and Cassandra meet after he comes to her assistance in a bar where some real bad ass Daimons are trying to kill herMy problem is that so far my interest has only been captured about learning about he precedents of the Dark Hunters enjoying their interactions with each other and learning about Archeron In this book Wulf and Cassandra are largely isolated They aren't in new Orleans and they aren't really interacting with other characters we already know My other problem is that a lot of the book is spent on making the Appollites sympathetic I am not invested in them at all so it felt like an exercise in tedium to listen to WulfCassandra debate the pros and cons of their respective lives And really don't get me started on the whole let's drug them and make them think they are having erotic dreams about each other when unbeknownst to them they are really having sex with each other business The book kicks up though when the NOLA Dark Hunters arrive to help Wulf The writing seems natural when the guys are just talking and joshing instead of the heavily cliched romance novel argot we get elsewhere So sadly I am not enjoying this series as much as I thought I would I will continue to read it because there are enjoyable elements and I am really curious about Archeron But I don't think these'll stand the test of time for me

    The Prologue tells the legend of Atlantis of the race of Apollites and a mistake Apollo had made a long time ago through which now the world is threatened by its very endSherrilyn Kenyon has built a logical deliberate conseuent and complex world Kiss of the Night is a peculiar book of the series the prime tragedy is set in the present not in the past Although Wulf’s background story is sad what truly broke my heart was the hopeless desperate situation of Wulf and Cassandra and the agonizing threat to their futureWulf and Cassandra are enemies by race Their principles and beliefs are different as well The obstacles between them look unbreakableBut the author has a talent for showing the other side of the coin As Wulf has never really thought about his enemies neither have I and now it was shocking and surprising to face them Kenyon presents Spathi Daimons even good Spathi Daimons many different kinds of Apollites especially one certain community  their lives deaths dreams difficulties fears and their respectable attitudes to their fate It is an enthralling story with a conseuent and exciting plot twists and turns a heartbreaking loss sizzling erotic scenes amazing secondary characters and fantastic humorI really enjoyed the appearances of Acheron Simi and Zarek But my new favorite character and love is Urian I really felt for him This book alone made me cry than all of the previous ones of the series altogetherMy favorite uotes

    Sherrilyn Kenyon have created something very fascinating with her Dark Hunter seriesShe knows how to find humor in serious situationsmake readers swoon in romantic scenespresent epic action scenes and develop characters that grow approachable by the endShe have created master pieces like FANTASY LOVER and DANCE WITH THE DEVIL that are my all time favourites in this genreKiss of the Night had a great start with the Dark Hunter Wulf Tryggvason saving the half Apollite Cassandra Peters from evil DaimonsNeither expected that their destinies would be tied together for all time after that nightI love that Cassandra could remember Wulf since everyone else forgot him after five minutes and that they share their dreams of ecstasy together before they realize that the dreams are in fact reality which results in Cassandra being pregnantAlthough this book did have a great start with the fiery chemistry between Wulf and Cassandra the pacing started to get slow and kinda boring by the middle before all the characters coming together which was why i loved to watch AshTalonZarekJulian and Kyrian fighting together by Wulf`s side near the endI consider these men the original Dark Hunters since i rated all their books 5 starsWulf Tryggvason is a ancient viking in blood that have done everything to protect his bloodline through all the generations where everyone always ends up deadThey are also the only ones who can remember him so that`s why he watches his latest heir Chris like a hawk and wants him to get laid so babies can come for the blood line to keep on existingI loved Wulf`s relationship with Chris and the way they always bickered made me laughAs all the other heroes in the series Wulf really tried to resist falling for Cassandra Peters since she is doomed to die on her 27th birthday like all the other ApollitesBut Cassandra and Wulf were drawn to each other and their hearts wouldn`t listenCassandra with her joy in life changed the cynical perspective of Wulf in not everything being black and whiteStryker is a great evil villain capable of killing even his own sonso how the hell is it possible he got his own book in One Silent Night

    The moment I started realizing the storyline was similar to TWILIGHTI am amazed how easily Sherrilyn carries out permutations and combinations for her stories This one though similar to Twilight different yet borrowed elemental premises her writing style somehow did hold me until the very last page And of course once againGreek Gods Vampires Daimons Were Wolves Dark Hunters Insignificant Humans blabbering Of course Captivating dry humour The whole book Concept 2550Execution 3050 Characters Bespoken 30 50Cover 3050Overall 3050As for Wulf and CassandraPS The best part of the book when all the previous Dark Hunters including Zarek shows up to help mightyyet so not mighty in front of his wife Wulf And somehow I have fallen in love with Acheron

    I would explain the plot but this is one of those stories that don't make sense unless you've read the first 7 books Let's see if I can simplify things Two people who are natural enemies fall in love They are both tragically doomed in different ways The female is doomed to die on her 27th birthday and the male is doomed to live a lonely life since no one can remember him five minutes after talking toseeing himTHE GOOD The plot I was riveted by the choices people had to make What makes us evil Are our enemies really the evil people we think they are Can the hero and heroine overcome their respective curses The kissing and sex Kenyon writes excellent kissing and sex ; The banter between characters A fascinating exploration of overprotective parents on multiple levelsTHE BAD These books are starting to become Kenyon mythos and world building first love story second It's only going to get worse from here Erotic bloodsucking Piercing your lover's neck with your fangs and drinking their blood is DISGUSTING and not sexy or orgasm inducing It's painful and gross I am really turned off by Wulf's overprotective attitude towards his great great etc grandchild Chris He treats this grown college student like a four year old The poor thing It's very not sexy I know Kenyon's playing it for laughs but it bothered me a lotTHE UGLY It was nice to find a woman who didn't use tears to manipulate menExcuse me WTF Way to come through with the women hatingAnd It was hard to feel beautiful with her stomach sticking out a mile but at least she had a good reason for being fatAnd Cassandra should have felt embarrassed to have a man so perfectly formed nuzzling her when she was the size of a whale but she didn't It was so comforting to have him with herAll of these three uotes cause me to start foaming at the mouth in rageFor one thing I have no idea where Kenyon gets this fat hatefat shame from Because her book Night Play is going to star a fat heroine Also she's hinted that Grace from Fantasy Lover and Sunshine Runningwolf from Night Embrace might be a bit chubby Now I don't think Grace or Sunshine were ACTUALLY chubby because of the way Kenyon wrote them but she's not going to pull any punches with Bride in her next book Bride is definitely fat And Kenyon is going to write a wonderful book about her as the lovely heroineI have no idea how at some moments and times she can be preaching It's okay not to be skinny and then at random times insert these negative messages that serve no purpose I can seeSeriously if she left them out I would have given this book another starAlso those last two statements are spoken by a pregnant woman She's pregnant What happened to pregnant women are beautiful and sexy Isn't that what someone who writes women friendly books for women readers supposed to be encouraging Not If you're pregnant you are fat and big as a whaleThere is no reason to make the women who read your book feel like shit Trust me the world and real life give women enough grief they don't need to take judgment and self hate teachings from a fictional novelAND ANOTHER THINGWhat about this If you like him then go up and introduce yourselfMichelle was horrified I can't do thatWhy notWhat if he thinks I'm fat or uglyThis female self hate might be common but it never fails to start my eyes glowing red All my friends in real life know this and know that if they want to live they'd better never bash themselves in my presence My friends are so funny sweet smart and sexy and it hurts me to hear them describe themselves as fat stupid or ugly I don't need to read about women bashing themselves It grates my cheeseHow about this one Cassandra smiled at their rating system which hinged on what they wouldn't toss a man out of bed for Milk Man meant he was attractive in an unusual way and could bring a glass of milk to bed anytime Crackers were one step up and Cookies were godsBut the ultimate in masculine desirability rated a Powdered Donut Not only was a powdered donut messy it violated their perpetual diet mentality and begged a woman to bit into itTo date none of them had ever met a powdered donut in the flesh Still they were ever hopefulI can't help but cringe at the idea of all these women at a bar rating men based on their looks It makes me feel disgusted and icky I can't help it I find it offensive Men are so amazing Perhaps you should start talking to them and getting to know them a bit before you decide if they are worth having sex with or not instead of making that decision based on how their ass looks in those jeansI feel like I've just flogged the book But those uotes are not an accurate representation of what Kenyon is doing here Overall the book has a gripping plot and wonderful sex scenes It's not as good as Dance with the Devil but honestly I don't know if Kenyon will ever reach that level of perfection againPS Wulf the hero has a made up virginity just like Zarek's kiss virginity in the last novel This time it's I've never slept in the same bed with a woman before virginity Let me remind you that this guy is a Viking and thousands of years old But Kenyon feels that it's important for the heroine to be a man's first in some little wayPPS Beowulf A New Verse Translation Cassandra the heroine is reading Beowulf for class before going to sleep Then a gorgeous Viking determined to give her multiple orgasms shows up naked in her bed I must have read Beowulf wrong because that NEVER happened when I read it I must track down a copy and give it another shot ;2 REAL STARS 3 ROMANCE STARS

    1st re listen I'm enjoying this series as much now as when I first read it I love how the story develops and unfolds with new reveals in each succeeding book I also love how we keep seeing past characters with their living their lives past their initial HEAs
