REVIEW: Night Pleasures – A Dark-Hunter series novel #2 by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Night Pleasures is the second (Actually, the sequence is interesting but I’m referring to them as I will .. neener) book in the Dark-Hunter paranormal and mythical romance series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

This story is of Kyrian and Amanda.

When I first read this series, I thought I read the wrong book.  What does this book have to do with Fantasy Lover?  Well, almost nothing IMO.  There are a few tidbits that  flow into each other, but not enough to really tie them together.

Night Pleasures really takes off into a unique world of vampires, daimons, gods and demigods and Dark-Hunters.  It’s all very quite interesting and wholeheartedly intriguing.  Unlike Kenyon’s recent publications, this series is more adult focussed.

Kyrian, a General, a Commander and Julian’s right arm from ancient Greece, is fighting the daimons in effort to protect the little humans.  He’s a lonely, cold and bitter man who refuses to care for another.  Refuses to give any second thought to a woman.  Refuses to find himself betrayed by the woman he loves….Again.

“What are Daimons?” she asked.

“They’re vampires on steroids with a God complex….”

Amanda is an accountant and is just one sister in huge family of weirdos.  Psychics, Mistresses, Prophets and Vampire hunters, Amanda has spent her entire life refusing her powers, pretending as if nothing was wrong with her.  Striving for normality, she forces her other half, the half she has buried so deep that it has fallen asleep, she dates regular men in hopes of a normal life.  Everything her family isn’t.

“I faced down an entire Roman legion with only a sword to protect me.  Now, why would I be afraid of some two-bit, half-god Daimon with an inferiority complex?”

Finding herself handcuffed to Kyrian in an unknown room, she realizes that her captors believe she is her twin sister Tabby, the vampire hunter.  She is anything but submissive or passive which just about drives Kyrian up the wall.

That did it.  She hated alpha men in the worst sort of way.  Those domineering, I’m-the-man-baby-let-me-drive types nauseated her.

“All right, macho babe boy,” she said irritably.  “I’m not some little ditz to bat my eyelashes at the buff stud in black leather.  Don’t try your he-man tactics with me.  I’ll have you know, in my office I’m known as the ball-breaker.”

I recommend this book to mature adults only.  Extremely fun violence and moderate to hello there baby sex content.  I give this book a double thumbs up for its genunity and delicious descriptive intimate moments…even those without any lust.

Now, I’m on to the next book! …Night Embrace .. The story of Talon and Sunshine.

~Happy reading!
