Ravyn is a Dark-Hunter whos also a
were-hunter. He was killed by his family after inadvertently getting his village
massacred. He sold his soul to Artemis for retribution against those responsible for the
massacre but his surviving family still hate him. The were-hunters are cousins to the
daimons, who the Dark-Hunters were created to destroy, so theyre sworn enemies of
each other. So Ravyn has a hard time being both were- and Dark-Hunter.
Susan is a reporter with no credibility, who has been reduced to working
for a tabloid for the paranormal in order to pay the bills. Stopping by an animal shelter
to talk to her best friend, Angie, about a conspiracy her police officer husband has
uncovered, Susan takes a cat home as a cover story for her visit. Once home the cat turns
out to be a gorgeous, well built shape shifter - Ravyn. He and Susan work together to
uncover the conspiracy and figure out what the daimons are planning, which is to take over
Seattle completely by killing the Dark-Hunters off one by one.
A perfect mixture of action, mystery, and romance, this is a must-read for
Dark-Hunter fans. Ravyn and Susan are an unlikely pair (shes allergic to him), but
grow on you. Theres also a bunch of squires as interesting secondary characters and
we catch up with previous characters, such as Archeron, Savitar, and Nick. I really
dont like Nick in this book; hes starting to sound like a whiny brat. Like all
Dark-Hunter books it is a bit steamy at times. Theres a great amount of information
important to the series in this book.
