2007: #15 – Dark Side of the Moon (Sherrilyn Kenyon)

moon.gifBook #15 was Dark Side of the Moon, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s 10th Dark-Hunter book. The back of the book reads:

Susan Michaels was the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until she walked into a setup that ruined her reputation. Now she’s working for a small Seattle paper, penning stories about killer moths and alien babies, convinced that her life couldn’t get any worse…

That was before an idea for a breaking news piece brought her to a local animal shelter where she ends up listening to her source rant about vampires and gets coerced into adopting a cat despite her allergies. But when her new pet suddenly reveals himself to be a gorgeous—and lethal—shapeshifter, Susan realizes that there’s far more at stake than a career-saving by-line.

Born into a world of predators, Were-Hunter Ravyn Kontis was betrayed by those he loved best. Soulless, pitiless, he has spent three hundred years battling the Daimons who seek to subjugate humankind. Against all odds, Susan evokes in Ravyn feelings of tenderness. Desire. Love. And with the ultimate battle about to begin, this one very human woman holds the power to shatter both their worlds…

I’ve never read a Dark-Hunter book before, so I wasn’t sure when I picked it up if I would be lost or not. I wasn’t too lost! The politics of it all is a little confusing and I’m still not sure I grasp it all, but the characters were great and the story was interesting. There were references to a few things in the past, but I’m not convinced they were actually covered in another book. Overall, I really enjoyed this, and will likely look for others by Kenyon.
