Dark Hunter Series  Book 4

Whispersync for Voice-ready

 

Wulf is an ancient Viking warrior with a useful but extremely aggravating power-amnesia. No one who meets him in person can remember him 5 minutes later. It makes it easy to have one-night stands, but hard to have a meaningful relationship, and without true love he can never regain his soul.

When he finally meets Cassandra, the one woman who can remember him, she turns out to be the princess of the cursed race he’s sworn to hunt-and forbidden to him. The two of them must face ancient curses, prophecies, and the direct meddling of the Greek gods to find true happiness at last.

My Thoughts

 

One more book in the Dark Hunter series and one closer to Acheron.

When I first picked up these books I thought I would just  be working my way through  them  just to get to the book that everyone I know that had read this series had so impatient and anxiously awaited for: ACHERON, but after the last installment, I have become a genuine fan and completely invested in this series.

I love the mythology aspect, the characters and the sensuality (hot, hot) of the Dark Hunter’s installments.

Here, we get the story of Wulf Tryggvason and Cassandra Peters.

Wulf was tricked into becoming immortal by a dark huntress with whom he’d had an affair with.

This ex lover with the help of  a god switched their souls without his knowledge, as a result, she became mortal while Wulf Tryggvason became a Dark-Hunter, and if as that wasn’t betrayal enough she cursed him with the pain of having no one remember him after five minutes of leaving his presence, with the exception of his bloodline.

After having existed this way for hundreds of years, he finally meets Cassandra Peters, who can remember him in spite of the curse, but things are never easy, Cassandra is half Appolite one of the very beings that Wulf lives to destroy.

With this, we get taken on an emotional, thrilling and sexy ride, the way only Sherrilyn Kenyon knows how to do.

I won’t say I like this book more than its predecessor, but nevertheless I enjoyed it very much. Here we get introduce to some promising new characters, more mysteries get weaved and we get visits from old friends from whom I’m always happy to hear/read from. The characters development continues, as we learn more and more from their back history, I love some of them more and hate some them more (Artenis) .

I’ve  heard some people described these novels as formulaic “boy meets girl, boy fights for the girl and boy gets the girl”, but if it was that easy.. Guess what? I just wrote a novel!!

The enjoyment comes from the fantasy element and the author’s talent that captivates your attention bringing you into their world, and these books undoubtedly do that.

I liked the way the author explored the gray area between good and evil in this book, and as usual it’s never easy.

Narration

Fred Berman, also read the previous book “Dancing With The Devil” and I absolutely love the way he read that book, but with this book I couldn’t help noticing that at the beginning of the book he would take a real deep breath before starting a sentence, and I did find it bothersome, but after 20 mins of listening I didn’t even noticed it anymore and I just got lost in the story, the world and the characters.

He’s got a fair amount of voices and accents for all the different characters and his female voices are some of the most adequate from a male narrator.

He reads these books with the perfect amount of drama without over dramatizing and really adds a different and enjoyable dimension, he beautifully captured Wulf’s personality and does a great job with my favorite male: Acheron, and boy oh boy! Does he know how to read my most dislike character: Artemis.

All and all a very good narration, I didn’t read this book, I just enjoyed on audio so I can’t give you a prospective on how the audio version compared to the printed one, but I definitely recommend this audiobook to be experienced as part of the whole series.
