Good read, not as bad as you may have heard.

Yes, the print is large and the book is short. Yes, the hero is a bad guy and his heroine is a b****. This novella does go into their background, however, and reminds the reader that most things are not as simple as black/white, good/evil, etc.

Yes, the print is large and the book is short. Yes, the hero is a bad guy and his heroine is a b****. This novella does go into their background, however, and reminds the reader that most things are not as simple as black/white, good/evil, etc.
Kenyon "warns" her readers that OSN is a major turning point in the series. I liked meeting the new characters, and learning more about a couple of familiar ones. Yes, the DH world is more complicated than we knew, but that also makes it more interesting. I also liked the checks and balances and the uneasy truces that were formed.
I didn't have a problem with the timing issue; it's not the first novella to go back and fill in a story.
Bottom line, for me at least, is that this is a $6.99 paperback. I didn't have great expectations, and it was better than I had hoped it would be. Just check it out and see for yourself.

It failed

I got the book today and sadly, it left so much to be desired.

I got the book today and sadly, it left so much to be desired.

It wasn't a great book, it didn't live up to the series as a whole. There is one thing that I dislike overall and it was Stryker's wife. It's a very short book, I understand that but Stryker was glazed over, his inherent evil qualities shifted so fast that it was annoying. There are too many races to remember now and the ultimate dislike of this book, Nick. People'll see when they read it.

It was...decent for a very quick read. Don't pick it up and expect it to take you long, it's big print so it's really only 100 pages total, not 300 and something. Also, there is a Carbon-Copy-Ash Character in the book named Jared, it was a total eye-roll book. Don't expect too much from it.

    This sucked

    Did this story have to be told? I am lost for words to say how disappointed I was that I took the time to read this book. In my opinion it did nothing to inhance the series or was it a major turning point in the series. I hate it when an author phones one in instead of putting in the work in, like they have on the past books of their series, that is required to keep the standard they have established. I feel cheated.

    Highly recommend.

    Stryker is someone you love to hate! He holds a lot of anger and hatred but understandably so. I'm glad Sherrilyn explained his character more.

    Story good, Audio was horrible!!

    I enjoy listening to books in the car, I was excited to find this one until the reader destroyed it for me. I have read the entire series and I have listened to a lot of them and have enjoyed Holter Gram but the man that reads this one makes 11,000 year old gods sound like dumb frat boys and winny litle girls. I am suprised that Sherrilyn Kenyon approved of this reading and that Macmillan Audio Published it.

    Too short to be enjoyable

    I consider this to be a novella, not even worth publishing. I was kind of upset I actually paid to read this. I am a huge Dark Hunter fan, but this book seemed like a trailer for the next book.

    I DID NOT ENJOY

    I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED - ALL HER OTHER BOOKS ARE GREAT - BUT THIS ONE THERE WAS NOTHING ENDEARING ABOUT THE COUPLE. HAVE VERY MUCH ENJOYED THE HUMAN/NON-HUMAN PLOT LINES. THIS BOOK HAD A LOT OF CRUELTY IT SEEM JUST FOR THE WORD COUNT. HOPEFULY THE NEXT BOOKS WILL GO BACK TO HER EARLIER WRITTING STYLE.
