Review of "Night Pleasures" (Dark-Hunter, #1) by Sherilyn Kenyon

Night Pleasures  - Sherrilyn Kenyon

I'm glad I read Ash's book prior this one. It probably changed my reaction to his appearances and the whole origins of the Dark Hunters thing. More depth, maybe; not that this series or book is more deep than the usual PNR books.

 

Which isn't a criticism. Just that it is fairly typical of the genre that each book centers on a couple, pretty much if not completely outright fated mates. In this one, it was immortal-centuries-old-Kyrian-Greek-Prince-during-Roman-invasions-turned-DarkHunter and

somewhat-innocent-new-to-powers-sorceress-Amanda-modern-accountant.

 

I liked Kyrian and Amanda. So, liked their story. Neither was an asshat or TSTL. Fairly explicit (maybe even skim-worthy explicit sex), but no dubious consent or some supernatural whatsit compulsion factor. Without being too spoiler-y, I really liked that the conclusion didn't require one of them to act totally out of character. Not really an in-line-with-internal-logic of the series explanation of the villain, though.

 

As much as I enjoyed this one, the preview of Talon's story at back of the ebook I read makes the next book sound way more interesting.
