Let me just say thank you so so much for replacing the lost book. I cannot believe the bad luck this series has had yet because of wonderful people like you, it has kept on travelling. This is the third replacement for this book. The first one was never jurnalized at all.

Journal Entry 3 by BooksnBeer from Annandale, Virginia USA on Sunday, September 17, 2006
I am really enjoying this series. I do have to say that I enjoyed book #2 and #3 much better than this one. It is interesting to see an author figure out the path of a series during a book. The characters really begin to be flushed out in the next two books. I am almost finished with book #3. I'll write more after I finish the next book. My plan is to send all four books on to the next bookcrosser together.

Journal Entry 4 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Tuesday, October 03, 2006
The first four books of the Dark Hunter series (not counting Fantasy Lover which I already read) arrived with me yesterday. I need to squeeze them into my extremely long owed TBR pile so I probably won't read and send them on all together. I notice they're all due to go to CdnBlueRose after me, which works out well because I've got another owed book I need to read and send off to her anyway.

Journal Entry 5 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Thursday, November 16, 2006
This is the first book in Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter series. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to finish this book. During the first 150 pages, I kept thinking that if I have to read the descriptions of Kyrian's "luscious body" one more time, I was going to barf! It was just waaaay to heavy on the romance for my taste! But since this book is the first of a very popular paranormal series, I wanted to at least be able to reserve my judgement until after I've read the first book in its entirety.

With that commitment made, I plodded on, often putting the book down for a longer length of time than usual and not wanting to pick it back up, seriously considering starting on something else instead. I guess it was finally around halfway through that it started to get a little more interesting. I don't know if the author got sick of going on for 2 pages describing Kyrian's 6 pack, or if I just got used to it, but any of that overly-descriptive gushing seemed to become slightly less at any rate, and I was able to enjoy the rest of the story somewhat.

Other reviewers talked about the sex scenes, and though there were plenty, they were kind of blah, not graphic enough for my liking. I think the author is afraid to use words like penis or pussy, which I much prefer in sex scenes, and instead used all kinds of flowery terms instead. Wouldn't you rather read about his rock hard cock sliding in and out of her wet, juicy pussy than his hard, stiff manhood sliding into her warm sheath? I don't mean to offend anyone by saying this, but if you're trying to write like erotica, then just do it, don't pussy-foot around! (Pun intended *grin*)

BooksnBeer wrote that she liked the next two books better than this one, and since I liked the ending more than the beginning, in contrast to CandyDarling, I'll probably tackle at least the next one or two to see if I like them better. But if I don't, then heh, I'm still thankful to NeedSun for giving me the opportunity to experience this series. And for all the other readers who kept replacing all the copies that got lost along the way. :)

Though I've still got books 2-4 on hand here, I'm going to return this first book at least to NeedSun since I have Candy's Got Fangs? ring here to send her anyway. It's going to piggy-back along for the ride. :)

EDIT 19-NOV-2006: Mailed to NeedSun along with Night Pleasures on 20-Nov-2006 via International Air Mail.
(CdnBlueRose wishes to be removed from the list.)

Home sweet home.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this ring and to all the people who replaced the books that went missing.

This book is going to become part of my PC

Sending this book out to kathyb25. Someone else to get hooked on the Dark Hunters.

Journal Entry 9 by KathyB25 from Arlington, Texas USA on Sunday, June 24, 2007
Ok, guess after 3 books I am offically hooked. Great book and I like how it used many of the same characters from the first book along with adding new ones. I really liked the main character in this book (Kyrian).
