Series: Hell Chaser bk 6/ Dark Hunter bk
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
It’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Life will continue to throw every bad thing it has at her, and she will continue to not put her head in an oven. But that’s okay. That which doesn’t kill her will just require a few hours of mental insanity. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group trying to get their own cable show as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running. But when her group accidentally releases something truly evil into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcement.
From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn’t quite right. And it’s not just because she can’t even begin to pronounce his last name: Maboddimun. Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his apparent age…
Centuries ago, Cadegan sold his soul for vengeance against the betrayer who cursed him. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him as much as it irritates and frustrates him. Something he can’t seem to fight, and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him his soul.
He knows he has to stay away from her, but the evil her friends unleashed is hellbent on consuming her soul. Something he cannot allow. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?
Thoughts: After Styxx I wasn’t sure how Kenyon would carry on this series but I should have trusted her. I mean she’s Sherrilyn Kenyon.
I loved this book. I mean FREAKING loved this book. This had everything I’ve loved about Kenyon, a hero you loved from the very beginning, a heroine who had a lot of heart and attitude.
One of my favorite Kenyon heroines has always been Tabitha, and Jo is a lot like her cousin. Life hasn’t been kind to her but she gets up every morning and does the best that she can.
My favorite Kenyon books are actually from her Lord’s of Avalon series, so the fact that Cade is like those heroes made my day. In fact parts of that series are mentioned in this book.
For Cade and Jo love was the easy part, it was everything around them that was hard, especially considering the fact they were trapped in another dimension.
There is so much more I want to say about this book, but to do so will give away some spoilers and I don’t want to do that. If you loved her Lords of Avalon series you will love this book.
