I was extremely heart-warmed to see Ash and Styxx getting along so well and truly behaving like loving brothers. Theirs were one of the most memorable moments in the book. I think one of the most anticipated aspects about this series are the hints, clues and information given regarding the multitude of intriguing, mysterious and compelling characters introduced. They are the ones you want to know more about, but Kenyon keeps a tight grip on every piece of itty bitty info and I predict she will eternally keep you craving for more, because the amount of such characters she creates isn’t exactly small and at least in every book there is a new addition to this elite secretive club of hunks. At times it annoys me, but the joy of finding out something new always compensates for the frustration. Also, in this installment, we get a lot, but not nearly enough regarding one of the members of this elusive club: Thorn. The tidbits were intriguing to say the least, especially the one in the very end before the epilogue.I liked Cadegan, he was sympathetic, kickass and tortured, but not in an overdoing kind of way. Despite everything, he was a nice guy not some bitter and hateful bad-ass. That was a pleasant surprise and kind of refreshing. I enjoyed this book so much. Can't wait for the next book. I have heard that the next two books will have dragons too!  I don't mind that the book was under 240 pages. If the story is good, who cares? I recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed her previous work.

I am sorry but this book was slapped together and awful. I have never been dissappointed by a SK book before but I feel cheated out of my $25. I could not have cared less about these two people and still don't. Why are we getting these books with characters we have never heard of, never been mentioned before when we have been waiting forever for books on people we really love? Like Remi, Urian, Jaden, Jared, Ethon, Keegan and where is Nick. This book jumped all over, and explained nothing. And why didn't Jo tell Thorn what really happened the night Cade killed those men? It barely held my interest but I read it all afraid I'd miss something about a character I liked. This book was like The Guardian, came out of nowhere with main characters we never heard of. I sure hope the next one is better and makes sense. If felt like Sherrilyn didn't even want to write this book. Just awful.

$12.99 for 200 pages of complete drivel and cheesey dialogue. Not worth the time and money I wasted on this garbage. The names were confusing, so many plot holes, and the main female character was annoying and could be easily classified as a Mary Sue. Lately, Kenyon's writing has sucked, ignoring plot and story development while focusing on torture and repetetive, gratuitus sex scenes. This book was dumb and makes me want to not read her stuff again. Don't waste your money people...get it at the library or read it in store. Sherilyn Kenyon: either get your storytelling back in shape or give me my money back & don't expect me to buy your next book.

its a lot of money for less than 240 pages, because the story doesn't start at page 1, I waited forever for this book, enjoyed reading it but not worth money

I read some negative reviews before purchasing, but I cannot skip a book from Sherrilyn Kenyon. I feel this book had to introduce new pieces to the puzzle that started with Nick's death and transformation. Sherrilyn Kenyon weaves for us a tangled web. We are not meant to understand all of this book yet. If you are not reading the Nick Chronicles, you are probably even more lost. Everything that happens and every character that we are introduced to has a purpose. I love it overall. I only wish the relationships/convserations withsome of our old friends had been expanded.

Although this is one of my favorite series and this book had great potential, it didn't quite hold up. For $12.99, I was a little upset it was only 242 pages, but really pissed when it actually only turned out to be 200. I wasn't ready for the story to end, there needed to be more character development. It was definitely thrown together. It doesn't make me give up on Kenyon like I did with Feehan but I expect better from her. Atleast the League series is still holding true.

Mixed feelings. Things I loved: This is in my favorite series ever and I love getting to see the characters come back and how there lives progressed. I am not going to lie this story was CHEESY and silly and wonderfully fun. It is a fantasy world with demons and gods and love and honor. Was it the best in the series nope. But I smiled through out the read. I was completely entertained and I will continue to purchase the Dark Hunter series.

3.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANGELA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Son of No one was a good read; unfortunately, it did not wow me. It could be that I’m still reeling over Styxx that at this moment I’m expecting a read at similar caliber. Alas, this book was not. Let me tell you why I liked it. Kenyon has a knack for writing tortured heroes and Cadegan is one of them.  Just like Styxx, he was banished and had to survive in a very harsh world, poor guy.  Kenyon paired him up with Josette, a mere human and cousins to the Devereaux sisters. She was a total trooper having to accept that the paranormal world is indeed real and not as crazy as she always thought.  I liked her; I thought she was a strong woman and good enough to be Cade’s match. As far as the “Dark Hunter world”… well, Kenyon can never go wrong with that.  Seeing and reading about the past characters are always a treat.  I love that they all still play a major roles in each other’s lives; from the DH to the Katagari family, Devereaux sisters, Ash and Stxx, Simi, etc. There are some characters that I’ve completely forgotten about that I had to look up…yes, because I could not recall who they were.  There will be a twist in Thorn’s character, and the Malachai have yet to show it’s wrath upon the DH but the hint of trouble is there.  There was a good set up for Illarion and Thorn which I thought would be the next book but when I looked it up, it will actually going to be about Max.  Looks like Kenyon fans will get their dose of shifters in the next DH novel. And for the cons of the book, there are a few things that  did not sit right with me.  I will attempt not to give too much info, but there are a few scenes that just made me question and reread the page.  There is a hint of the movie “Big” or “Freaky Friday” that to me was a bit disturbing (If you really want to know this, please message me, and I will tell you).  Another thing is that Cadegan and Jo had an insta-love I just couldn’t over look.  There were too many scenes that happened quick and accepted even quicker.  Last, the addition of Lords of the Avalon, King Arthur and the memory of the past confused me a bit.  Though I enjoyed the merging of the books, it took me while to adjust.  There is just so much going on in this world that it’s hard to remember every detail.  Unfortunately, the recap was not as clear as I would like it.  Perhaps a reread would be a good idea before reading this installment. Overall, Son of No One was still a good read.  I can’t wait for Max’s Book.  I’m sure it’ll be full of Sanctuary’s usual characters which I know will be a treat for most. *ARC provided by publisher

I have to say that this is one of the most confusing books I’ve ever read. The Dark Hunter universe has been expanded over several books and includes several pantheons and a plethora of characters. And many of these paranormal beings are literally thousands of years old. And some of them have had several names over the centuries, including many of the characters in this story. The author referred to several characters by a few different names and it was a little difficult to keep up with who was who. I also had a difficult time with the insta-love aspect of the story. I could feel chemistry but I thought the confession of love was too soon and the romance didn’t develop naturally. Something felt off with the story. I couldn’t put my finger on it but the story seemed incomplete somehow and the book ended too soon. This felt more like a transition book to me; the backstory or groundwork being laid in order to prepare us for some apocalyptic changes in the storylines.  I thought it was great watching the appearances of older characters such as Talon, Acheron, Styxx, Simi, Grace, Selena and a few others. We also got to see more of Karma, one of the Devereaux sisters and briefly meet her son. Cade and Jo were okay characters but their “love” story sounds a lot like Seth and Lydia’s in the book, THE GUARDIAN. I hate to say it but I was sadly disappointed in the story. To top it all off, the author confused me even further by adding a bonus scene at the end of the book totally negating the parentage of Cade that was mentioned in story. So…I’m really confused. Was everything we learned in the story about Cade’s father a lie or is this just some kind of crazy subterfuge? I’m not sure but I’m really not excited about the next book. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon and her books, but this one was a miss for me. I’m torn in my feelings and found it difficult to put them into words so I apologize if my review sounds a little disjointed because that’s how the book left me feeling.

OK. So, while this wasn't my favorite DH book, I did find it an enjoyable read and good addition to the series. I enjoy it when Kenyon brings other pantheons and such into the mix. I know as long as she is bringing in new characters, the series isn't going to end anytime soon. For those that are angry over cost, length, etc. of the book, this would be my take. They all cannot be lengthy like Styxx or Acheron. Most is this series have been between 200 and 300 pages. As for cost, when you are buying a title from a best-selling author, you will pay more for it. As for those angry over a new plot line thrown in? I like the new blood. Kenyon is always making the storyline evolve. I think this is the start of a three-book series within the series. She has done this before and I liked it then. Lastly, to address the "why hasn't she written about so-and-so's story yet" people. Please be patient. If you haven't figured it out after 18 books, let me spell it out for you. Kenyon has a plan for EVERY ONE of her characters. Your favorite character's story will come out eventullay. It is in bringing out these new story lines that she will be able to continue the series and bring true love to all of our faves. If you are not familiar with this series, I would not suggest starting here, though I guess you could. My feeling is that a new reader would be completely lost in the DH world. That being said, I adore this series and would recommend to anyone that likes their romances with a little paranormal and a lot of hot and heavy. Seriously about the hot and heavy - completely NOT appropriate for young readers. I have been reading the DH series for years and I still get giddy when a new one comes out. For the people curious about Nick, my suggestion would be to pick up the chronicles of Nick series. I know it is an off-shoot of this series geared toward teens, but it will give an idea as to how she will bring him back into the series. I have really enjoyed that series also. Kenyon has a way of weaving a story together that I just love. Her heroes are always big massive hunky tortured souls that are always just in need of a good woman to mend their broken selves. I haven't come across a Hunter I have not liked, but like all DH fans, I do have my faves. Thanx Ms. Kenyon for another great read! Can't wait to see where you take us next! -- SPeeD

This books builds a bridge from her lords of Avalon series to the dark hunter world.

I don't usually write these. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers. This is an awful book and has nothing really to do with the Dark Hunter series except to name drop.

Couldn't finish it was so bad. Thrown together badly. Short story of $12+ e-book is bad in this economy. The puplisher is shafting us and SK.

Loved this book and all the other short stories of our favorite characters in between. What an amazing author! Keep doing what you do Ms. Kenyon, I am NOT disappointed. FYI Ms. Kenyon has explained numerously on her website and even on FB, the introduction of this story and their characters and if you are a true Kenyon fan, then you would know that this story isn't so new and that you have definitely meet some of these people before. If she kept doing the same thing, it would get boring real fast. Don't lose faith!!!!

Surely it couldn't be Ms. Kenyon. This book is awful. The slap stick humor is just too much. It feels forced and it is pure cheese. Why does every other paragraph have to be a joke? The story doesn't flow. It feels disjointed and half hazard. The whole body switch is ridiculous. This does not feel like a Dark Hunter book at all. I could go on but will sum it up by saying that this book is disappointing. I really hope the next one is up to her usual standards. What a bummer.

Lovely story of Cadegan and Josette! Tied in wonderfully to the Devereaux sisters, not what I was expecting but a great surprise to see his ties to Thorn! Have already recommended book to several friends!

So Disappointed,  I have all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter books and was so disappointed in this book. First of all I have never been so confused by names   and could not pronounce half of them which made for a difficult read. This book was not at all like her other Dark Hunter books. It was silly tp start with and I kept waiting for the Dark Hunters to enter the picture. I was actually embarrassed for Archeon to even be in the book. By the way if you have not read Archeon, read it today. I have worn the cover off of my book from reading it so many times. Anyway don't waste your money on this book. It definitely was worth the  $11.04 I paid.

I really enjoyed this book even though it took me alittle while to understand what was going on. It has been awhile since I have been reading this series so it took awhile to catch up. I saw that this book had some poor reviews but don't be dicouraged by them. I feel this book was well written & the characters had depth. I can't wait to see where the author takes the story line from here.
