Dance with the Devil - Dark-Hunter, Bk 4
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Zarek's Point of View: — Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude. — Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long.

I laughed, I cried, got mad, held my breath to in anticipation, literlly couldn't put it down. Took me two days to read and I loved it! This book had everything it takes to make a repeat readable book on myself. If it can make me do all those things and think about it for hours on end afterward it is an excellent book and the writer knows how to keep a reader interested. A++++ author!

You really get to know Zarek, one of the most hard hearted Dark Hunters. Having endured a lifetime as a tormented Roman slave and 900 years as an exiled Dark Hunter, Zarek is not about to trust anyone. Then he meets Astrid, a goddess who has been sent to Earth to judge him. Zarek is taken in by the beautiful Astrid after he gets hurt in a battle with some Squires. He has no idea of Astrid's true purpose in his life as his heart starts to thaw through her ministrations. These characters were so different from each other - one a wild, not very attractive man; the woman a quite refined, compassionate beauty. As Zarek's background is revealed I was able to feel more sympathetic towards him rather than pitying and wishing he'd go away. Astrid is truly a wonderful character. The plot is filled with action and several surprises. Also has it's share of erotic longings fulfilled between the 2 characters. Couldn't put book down to see what would happen and was satisfied at the ending. An enjoyable, fun book!

All the Dark Hunters are tortured souls, but Zarek is the most tortured of all. This was my favorite Dark Hunter novel. It is the love story between Zarek, and Astrid, who was sent to judge him. She has never found anyone innocent until now.

Wow! A great book. I was drawn to Zarek in the last Dark Hunter book where he played a role in Talon & Sunshine's story. I am very glad that Zarek was able to have a story devoted to him. Zarek was a Roman slave when he was human - he went through hell - never knowing any kindness in his life. In his Dark Hunter life, everyone thinks he is insane and a screw up. Astrid is a justice nymph who is sent to judge him - if she judges him guilty, he dies. Her reputation is that she has never found a Dark Hunter innocent. The interactions between the two main characters is great - you learn more about the dark hunter mythology - as well as more about Acheron.

I really enjoy the Dark Hunter series; even though you're pretty sure you know what's going to happen, the stories are still satisfying.

Here's one of the baddest of the bad put in a nearly impossible situation which he doesn't realize is a test. The scenery is interesting (cold!)and the characters are fun, especially the hero and heroine who don't see eye to eye. Love the "pet" wolf, demon child and cowboy Dark Hunter involved, too.

Loved this book. Zarek hates everyone around him, but most all himself, the only thing that keeps him going is that fact that if he lives he's bound to piss someone off ~ including a goddess. Astrid is sent to judge him, without her sight, but she sees so much more than everyone else and soon wants to find away to save him. Zarek's story is heartwrenching and one totally worth reading.
Love Acheron even more and Simi is awsome, I am now a loyal fan of Simi. And I really wish that Ash would let Simi BBQ the red-headed goddess.

Zarek the outcast, the psychopath...He is one of my favorite characters in the series. He's mean and dangerous, but has a heart of gold.

This is the fourth book in Sherrily Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. As with all other 3 Dark Hunter series, I really liked this one.
It is the story of Zarek and his love and savior Astrid, a Nymph. It pretty much follows the premise of all the other books where the dark hunter is saved by love. Though the premise is common, the story itself is well written and it does not make me think "same old".
I recommend this book to anyone who likes lots of traditional romance, with some really sad tear jerking scenes and lots of action. Like I said, it's a good book.

OK, now the suffering here is intense. The hatred not forced and the great thing is the hero does not really do an about face. You see the possibility of reform for Zarek and happiness.

Better than book 2. I liked Zarek and "got" why he was like the way he was. It was a bit cliche- a certain person being a virgin. Yes, it was explained, but not buying. It annoys me when there is a character who happens to be immortal (or very long lived) have miniscule experience in the sex department. Then, getting it on while someone's hunting you down, smart! That aside, it was a sweet romance. I enjoyed the parts with Acheron and Simi more though.

This is my favorite of the Dark-Hunter series so far. As the series continues, you get more clues and information about Achelon and the history of the Dark-Hunters. Sherrilyn Kenyon fans will not want to miss this one. Definitely recommended!

This is one of her older books [2003] that still can get you revved up. Has all the action, drama, love, mystery you ever want in a book.
