Dark Hunter Series

Reading the Entire Dark-Hunter/Hunter Legend Series // by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Night Pleasures // Book 1

I have decided to read this series – over 40 books. Yes, that’s a lot. Truly don’t know how long it is going to take but I’m going to try to read them all and blog about it. I have my first post here, where I reviewed the first book – or the prequel of the series Fantasy Lover.

I will be following the recommended reading order the author herself recommends if you want to read with me you are welcome to do so. I am going to try to read at least three books a month. Here we go, jumping right into it.


Here are some of my thoughts from the prequel. 

Julian and Grace I loved and adored. Their relationship and their chemistry was everything and I loved them both so much. The chemistry between them was so hot and I just loved Julian. His character was well developed and I loved how he saw Grace and how much he cared for her. Same with Grace, I loved her character and how she interacted with Julian.

Now the scenes between Grace and Julian. Oh so hot. I loved the epilogue and I hope to see more of them in the rest of the series.

About the Book

Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power?

That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of it.

Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: an accountant. She’s smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal.

My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Now I find myself wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.

Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there’s any way a woman can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he’s not sure it will ever beat again.

My Thoughts /// ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Each book is on the short side – each book is a romance of individual couples with side characters and their relationships. Although this is technically the first book (I am reading in order, so for me it is book 2 per the reading order) it is nice to see the characters that we will soon read about throughout the series.

I really enjoyed this book. I think more so than the prequel. I love Kyrian’s character a whole lot and love how he progresses throughout the book. We meet Nick, someone we will see in all the other books who even has a series of his own.

This book was so much better than it’s prequel Fantasy Lover. Following Amanda and Kyrian, we get to meet other Dark-Hunters as we follow their romance. Amanda is lovable and Kyrian you fall in love with the moment he’s on the page.

Finding new characters to love throughout this series is even better. I wish this book was longer because at times it felt rushed. At times, if the book was longer it would have been better, pacing and character wise. It seemed rushed at the end.

So excited to go onto book 2 Night Embrace.

Reading the Entire Dark-Hunter/Hunter Legend Series // by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I have always loved fantasy and paranormal romance. In fact most of my favorite books are all fantasy romance. So when I learned of a book series that has an overarching plot of over 30 books I could not resist. I have decided to blog my reading journey. Every book. Yep, that’s right. I am going to be reading every book. All forty two of them.

I will be following the recommended reading order the author herself recommends if you want to read with me you are welcome to do so. I am going to try to read at least three books a month. Here we go, jumping right into it.

About the Book

Julian of Macedon has spent centuries in hell, where the only respite he knows is measured in a handful of weeks whenever he’s summoned through an arcane spell. With the modern age, those summonings are becoming fewer and fewer, and he lives in fear of the day when they’ll stop for good.

Grace Alexander doesn’t believe in much of anything. But when her “psychic” girlfriend talks her into performing the spell as a joke on her birthday, the last thing she ever imagines is it working. But work it does. Now, she finds an ancient Greek general in her living room and trapped in her life for the next month. Worse, they learn too late that part of the spell means Grace will lose her sanity should he return to his captivity.

Now it’s a race against time to free him. Something much easier said than done, since it was the ancient gods who cursed him to his fate. And the last thing they want is to see him go free of the punishment the gods believe he
deserves. It’s man against the gods, and a race against time.

My Thoughts // ⭐⭐⭐.5

I really liked the beginning of this book. The romance, the mystery of the curse and Julian and Grace’s dynamic and relationship. However, the reason I did not give this book 4 stars was how she portrayed Aphrodite and Athena. They seemed cheesy and rushed and ver ooc from the brief moments we did see them earlier in the book. They both seemed to be written by a what seemed to be a teenage girl n the end. Their characters did not match how I would assume goddesses would act, especially how they were portrayed however briefly in the beginning/middle of the book.

Julian and Grace I loved and adored. Their relationship and their chemistry was everything and I loved them both so much. The chemistry between them was so hot and I just loved Julian. His character was well developed and I loved how he saw Grace and how much he cared for her. Same with Grace, I loved her character and how she interacted with Julian.

Now the scenes between Grace and Julian. Oh so hot. I loved the epilogue and I hope to see more of them in the rest of the series.
