Of course AG's dark-hunter world is unlike any other in the paranormal-romance craze. It is steeped in mythology and it's other-worldly creatures are distinctly outlined, animated and given life.
This bit in the series featured my fave, Ash (Acheron), and it answered some Qs, but it did not excite me so much and it was the beginning of the lead to disappointment about the changes happening to Ash's world (due to his book not being satisfying enough for me, but that's another story).
Least to say, the hero of this piece, Sin, was a better character than the heroine, Kat, who only had one thing going for her that I won't reveal. Furthermore, this couple wasn't even as exciting as any of the couples in the Dream-hunter novels (and I liked NONE of them that much).
So moving on, Kenyon writes well, I love the continuing saga she has woven and I chalk it up to The Devil May Cry
being a necessary chore (transition book, if you will) for readers like me who continue gorging on scrumptious chocolate that IS the Dark Hunter series! You have to work-off the fat once in a while.
While reading it didn't require too much work, it did garner breaks and sometimes felt like a duty you'd do in order to enjoy indulgence later. Because I am sure Kenyon hasn't run out of magic yet.
