Wow, it's been awhile since the last one huh?



What were your expectations of this book? Were they met or not? Why? Favorite part(s)? Least favorite part(s)?


NOTE: As I've yet to buy my copy, my thoughts will be posted in about 3 days, which will give me plenty of time to buy and read the book completely.

What did you all think? Was it what you expected? Why or why not? Oh and how excited are you that Dev will be getting his own story?

So while we eagerly (and in my case desperately) await the release of Bad Moon Rising, I thought we'd just have a lovely chat about the series in general.

How did you find out about/get into the Dark Hunter series? What is your favorite thing(s) about the series? Least favorite?

Who's story are you most excited about and can't wait for? Why?

Have you gotten the Manga? If so, what did you think about it?



I found the series completely by accident. I was looking for a different kind of romance novel all together and someone on [livejournal.com profile] romancenovels directed me to a site that listed paranormal romance novel authors. I started choosing authors at random but was becoming discouraged because none of them got my attention. The last author I randomly chose was Sherrilyn Kenyon and BOOM! I was hooked by just the sample that was up at her site. I loved how different the storyline was compared to other books, that each book was part of a bigger story and that the gods and goddesses of different cultures played a large part of ruining/aiding the characters. I loved that Sherri keeps building the mystery around several characters like Ash, Savitar, Nick, and Jaden.

I have to say I'm really curious and excited to read Nick's story, he's so angry, bitter and confused that he's going to need a lot of help to learn to live with what's happened to him and I hope he and Ash will go back to being friends again.

Yes, I've gotten the manga and I love it. Not as much as the books but I think it's a great idea. I've already pre-ordered volume 2.

Remember that you CAN have spoilers in your comments but to keep from spoiling the series for those who aren't caught up, please put a warning in the subject line of your comment.

Talk to me guys, was the book what you expected? Why or why not? Were you right about Ash's heroine?

*sniffle* The last Dark Hunter book (At least until the next book comes out) that we'll be discussing.

  


So what are you're thoughts on the book?

Which character would you rather have as the following and why?:

a.) A friend.
b.) An enemy.
c. ) A lover.
d.) Bodyguard

EDIT: It might be nice if I answered my own questions huh?

a.) I'd have to say Erika (From Dark Side of the Moon), simply because she's a smartass and it seems to me that to survive being around immortals and their egos, you need to be tough and a smartass.

b.) If I had to pick I'd have to say Artemis. Though she's a goddess, Ash is there to control her mean ass in case she wanted to fry me or something.

c.) As much as I love Ash, Kyrian and Valerius, I have to go with Vane. Technically he's not a Dark Hunter but damn he's sexy! I have a deep love for wolves and well, he's a wolf so there you go.

d.) Simi would be a lovely bodyguard. Virtually indestructable, yet caring and funny. She'd be perfect.
dark_x_huntress: (Valerius is my Anti-Drug)
Again, sorry for the lateness. I can't wait to discuss Devil May Cry so that will be posted on time, maybe a little earlier (since I have a limited time on the Internet these days).

One more book to go and then we're through (For now) with the Dark Hunter series. Anyone have any suggestions on a new book or series? I had a few in mind, the front runner being The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward. Feel free to suggest something.

Here we go, let's start discussing Seize the Night, another one of my favorites in the series. Remember that anything goes as far as discussing future events. The only thing I ask is that you put "Spoilers Ahead" or something similar in the subject line so that you don't spoil things for those who have yet to read the entire series.

Ah here we are, discussing Dance with the Devil. I happen to know that for a few of you, this is your favorite book so I'm very excited to read what you all have to say. The only thing I have to say is that if you want to mention things that happen in future books, please put something in the subject line of your comment along the lines of "Spoilers for..." and mention the book. There are a few people who haven't read all the books and don't want to be spoiled. Other than that, I don't object to mentioning a few other details just warn others okay? Also, if you're new and want to comment on older discussions that's fine as well!

I can't wait to come back and discuss Dance with the Devil next weekend since I know a lot of people love "Psycho-ass" Zarek.


In case you missed it, I made a manip (not very good) of an actress who I think is the perfect Artemis HERE.

Here we are at the first book of the Dark Hunter series, Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This time we will be discussing the book as a whole and see how that goes. Please beware of spoilers for future books, but seeing as how most of you have read them all already that shouldn't be a problem. If you have any questions please ask them.

So here we are at the final chapters of Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I didn't really like the way the discussion ran, it was lacking a lot so I need your opinions and suggestions on how to make the discussion of Night Pleasures more enjoyable for everyone. Should we discuss 5 chapters at a time or the book as a whole (which would in my opinion work better, since we wouldn't have to worry about crossing over and discussion chapters early). Please e-mail me: seline_bennet@sbcglobal.net or leave me a comment.

Chapters 12-17 Discussion Starter Questions



My Thoughts on Fantasy Lover
Honestly I don't understand why this is considered a "Prequel" to the Dark Hunter series as the only thing closest to the Dark Hunter world the reader comes to is when Julian thinks he sees Kyrian at a club (which if you're reading the books in order you won't realize until Night Pleasures). I did enjoy all the irony in the book (Grace being a sex therapist in need of a sex slave and most of all Aphrodite's cold and callous attitude towards her son and especially his feelings for Grace, being that she is the goddess of love you'd think she'd understand better. Then again the gods are nothing but spoiled children with a lot of power.

I loved Julian's growth throughout the book. In the beginning he starts off thinking of himself as an object to seeing himself as a human and having a hard time accepting that no one will ever see him as anything other than an object. He in a way resents Grace for "making him" human when he feels he'll never have a chance to be one. His experiences in the modern world are so funny, my personal favorite is when Grace tries to teach Julian to drive. A feared Greek General who was tireless in his quest to destroy Rome and he couldn't even handle a car!

Also, Grace's encounter with Rodney brought a very real element to the story, it was just what therapists have to deal with on a regular basis. It also reinforces that it could happen to ANYONE at anytime (as I believe Rodney had displayed similar behavior with another woman).

Priapus... Spoiled, horny pain in the ass.

Overall the book was entertaining at best but it did lack that good vs. evil/mystery & suspense element that adds to a romance story.

Book One: Fantasy Lover



Chapters 6-11 Discussion Starter Questions



1. Right as chapter 6 begins we find out the the biker Julian punches is in fact Eros (aka Cupid), why do you think Sherrilyn made him and Psyche bikers as apposed to professionals (doctors, bankers ect)? I honestly think it's more humorous that the god of love is a biker, or rather chooses to hang around bikers. I think it gives Eros and Psyche a more "human" connection don't you think? They're not as aloof as Artemis is but I doubt humans are on their "favorites" list.


2. Julian continues to experience the modern world in these chapters, sometimes with humorous results, what experience of Julian's is your favorite?
I think I like Julian's driving experience the best, honestly I know how he feels. I can't drive worth anything!

3. As the story progresses, we see what Julian had to put up with all his life, women throwing themselves at him constantly. He reveals that it isn't all fun and games because these women see him as an object and not a human being (you know, the way men view women these days). Would you feel the same way (in the case of a woman, how would you feel having men throw themselves at your feet?) Julian does? Or would you love the attention?
In the beginning it might be nice but as time went on I think I'd react like Julian. Every creature wants to be loved at the end of the day no matter what they say and to never have that, it's rather sad.

4. Love or lust and why?
Love. Love is not selfish or cruel while lust can be both.

5. Additional comments/questions:
