Book Description:
It's a predator eat predator world for the Were-Hunters. Danger haunts any given day. There is no one to trust. No one to love. Not if they want to live…
An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals—snow leopard and white tiger—Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.
Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. Senator who hates the socialite life she's forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn't understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.
In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls…

I was a little disappointed with this Dark-Hunter novel. Acheron is my favorite character and there was nothing about him. Other than that, it was good, not one of the best though.

I'll be putting it into an envelop today and edit this entry once I actually get to the post office.

And now it has arrived in Germany... once again the Dark-Hunters are here...

Thanks NeedSun for sending it my way... I'll take it with me when I'm going on holidays (didn't I just do the same thing last year with a Dark Hunter novel?? :-) seems to be the perfect holiday read!) and post it afterwards to Austria... (around August 22nd)

Well, I enjoyed reading it but it was definitely no Dark Hunter novel.. they nearly weren't mentioned at all..
And this Savitar guy seems to be a kind of poor copy-Acheron ..
But if you just take the story around Marguerite and Wren it was a good one... wouldn't know what I'd do if my man suddenly turns out to be a white tiger... :-))

Have asked whether I can send it on...

It was a nice story of the Were-Hunters but a bit disappointing as I missed the Dark-Hunters and bit more action. As Sherrilyn Kenyon tends to give the reader bits and pieces of information about her world of Dark- & Were-Hunters, I was missing that here too - guess the Glossary at the end of the book is making up for that in a way.
I'm still looking forward to another novel ;)

I loved the 8th book in the dark-hunter series as much as the ones before it. Unleash the Night is the second book that focuses on were-hunters, after the 5th book, Night Play. I was delighted to see some familiar faces (Vane, Fang and Fury Kattalakis, for example) and I think the time-traveling aspect was better in this book than in Night Play.

I think the reason why I liked Unleash the Night so much is that I was in exactly the right mood when I read it. Now that I've given the book a little more thought, I think there are several things that could have been better... One thing was the weird character change in Mama Bear. It seemed like a cheap plot device, and made me lose some respect for the author. And who is Savitar? He seems a bit too much like Acheron, do we really need two charaters like that? One thing I both liked and disliked was how people put Wren down because he was poor, and how Maggie then gloated with the fact that he was in reality incredibly wealthy. While reading, I got a cheap satisfaction out of this, because who wouldn't like to humiliate idiots who measure worth in money... But on the other hand, the whole scene in jail wasn't very realistic, and I thought the lawyers were acting like little children - i.e. "my daddy has more money than your daddy". (Then substitute daddy for client...) I don't remember the previous books being this childish...

I'm very much looking forward to reading the next book, Dark Side of the Moon, despite of the bad reviews it has gotten at Amazon. The series has been in a downward spiral, but all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books have been entertaining nevertheless. I just wish she would keep the universe she created tight and well maintained - the glossary at the end was a nice addition, but it also makes me scared that more and more characters will be introduced in each book until it really becomes impossible to tell them apart without the glossary.

Will send the book to joasik today.

It took me a few hours to read it. Another great story in this series. I loved it!

Sent to the next person in the ring.

Excellent! This arrived today, I can't wait to continue the series.

I started reading this today. I'm loving it - I feel like I'm meeting up with my old friends again. I can't wait to find out what is going on in Dark Hunter world.

Journal Entry 15 by BooksnBeer from Pasadena, Florida USA on Friday, June 15, 2007
Once again, I really enjoyed this book. I like the characters and really enjoyed the twist with Maggie. I hope another book gives us more information on her situation. The one thing I felt was that the ending was a little too neat and all tired up. I also agree with another reviewer about who is this Savitar character and why didn't we meet him in "Night Play". But, I have to say I think the change in Mama Bear works in the Dark Hunter series, better then the goody two-shoes version.

I look forward to the next book.

I have the address for the next person and I will send it on this weekend.

Arrived yesterday. I'm still a bit backed up on this spiral, currently at book 3 so fortunately I'm at the end. :P
