No, it isn't one of her best books, but if you want to read the Dark-Hunter books....this one is a must to start with! It really sets the scene for many of her books, and introduces important characters to you.
A good story, and they just keep getting better!
I enjoyed the book. I wish I studied more about the gods when I was younger.
I guess "not for me" would be the best review for this book. I did not finish it. A friend told me about this series. After reading the summary on the back I was skeptical about reading it, but went ahead and gave it a try. A couple chapters in and I felt like I was reading a kinky teenage novel. The writing is kind of immature/lacking, but the content is pretty adult. I think this series is considered paranormal romance and I guess it's just not my thing.
This was the first of Sherrilyn's books I had read and I instantly fell in love with the series.
This book has pretty much everything. Suspense, Romance, some humorous parts, and of course some fantasy :)
I think i could relate to the female main character because she wasn't the usual bleach-blonde skinny model type, she's a "curvacous" woman :)
Anyway, you'll love the book, hopefully as well as my friends and i have. (yeah, i got them hooked on the series too)
p.s. this isn't the first book in a series, but you don't really have to go in order to understand the plot/story.
This is a 'prequel' of sorts to the Dark Hunter series. It was awesome!! The characters are witty, and humorous and I very much could relate to how the female lead character was feeling. A fantastical story with really believable personalities. If you like Greek Mythology, fantasy and hot romance, you probably would really like this book as well.
First peek at the start of Dark Hunters
I loved this book! The story line was very good...different from most of the fantasy romance books I read. I'm looking forward to reading the whole series. I love the way the main character, Julian, has a hard time learning the ways of modern life. I can't say enough good things about this book. I read it in 1 day!!
