Oh, how I had high hopes for this book, but I should of known it would be hard to follow up Dance with the Devil. In no way was Kiss of the Night a bad book, in fact this story is sugary sweet. Maybe a little to sweet after such a tormented predecessor as Dance with the Devil.
Trapped in an existence hunting evil only in the night, Wulf Tryggvasen the viking warrior, is an easily forgotten man, literally. Everyone but Wulf's direct blood-line forgets him within five minutes of his leaving their presence. Everyone that is until he meets the beautiful half-human, half-Apollite Cassandra. Cassandra is going to die in eight months on her twenty seventh birthday, and as if that wasn't bad enough, she's man kinds last hope for survival. If Cassandra dies without producing an heir, the god Apollo dies with her and so does the sun. With Daimons chasing her in hopes of killing her before a heir can be produced, Cassandra must turn to the feared Dark Hunter. The only questions is, can Wulf overcome the taboo of Cassandra's heritage and face the truth of what he truly is.
Kenyon's novel, Kiss of the Night, was a nice read that held my attention. The plot is lacking depth, the characters are a little cheesy, and there was no real sexual tension, the characters just come together quickly and then grow to love each other. The last quarter of the books story line is what saved this book from a trip down boredom lane. I enjoyed appearance of past Dark-Hunters and my all to favorite Demon - Simi. Again, kudos to Sherrilyn Kenyon for her amazing intertwining of stories. Every book in this series flows into each other with such ease and grace and within such tiny details, it commands respect for Kenyon's storytelling abilities. My new favorite game in the Dark-Hunter series has become "guess which supporting character will have a future book". I am starting to read the books with that as my main purpose. All in all, this is an OK read. Fans of the series will enjoy it, but readers just picking it up will not understand most of what is going on.

Most confusing of the series...

It might just be me, but the begining threw me completely off. If Apolomy was barren, then miraculously had 1 child, how were 2 seperate ones born - 1 stolen/slaughtered and 1 sent out??? And born to different gods? What??? [I didn't get it, even after reading 10 times]...

And born to different gods? What??? [I didn't get it, even after reading 10 times] Then Katra had no idea who she was at first? Really??? Plus Spathi Damions, Dream-Hunters and Were's were inter-mixed, but still made little sense to me. I think there was an over-kill of information. Cassandra and her friends kinda bored me, too. And why kill Cass if she's gonna die in 8 months anyways? Alot of feelings were explained over-and-over. Hearing it twice is usually good enough for me. It's worthwhile to read for the series, Wulf's funny, the loves scenes were HOT, and I'll always love Ash - but it's not one of my favs. <3
