In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow:
Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.
But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That’s when I’m summoned. Who am I? I’m the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it’s my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling.
Or so I thought until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger-it’s not just her name, it’s how she lives her life. She doesn’t trust me at all. And who could blame her? She alone knows that I’m here to be judge, jury and most likely executioner of her friends. Yet she is my key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die.
Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead. But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I’ve ever loved?
The Dark Hunter world is an entrancing mix of Greek Mythology, romance, and action. This is a series I love and even at book seven I am entranced and will follow this series to the end. This book is probably a little less intriguing to me than the previous books but I still enjoyed the experience.
Danger and Alexion are not my favourite couple from the series, I enjoyed the banter, but the romance between the two was lacking. I was more intrigued by the overall world than the couple that was the focus of the book.
There is more expansion of the Dark Hunter world and the mythology behind this amazing race of people. Acheron is by far my favourite character so far in this series with his little demon Simi I love those two.
Overall, this is still a fabulous series and the universe is one I am star-struck with. I was less enamoured with the couple in this book, but the world building and mythology was just as amazing as ever.
Keep Calm and Read On,
