The world and its rules of Dark-Hunter
series are probably best outlined in the book Dark-Hunter Companion
(an insider's guide and handbook written by Acheron himself). For those who are yet to read it, few simple facts:
Dark-Hunters are immortal warriors who sold their souls to Artemis (the goddess of moon and hunt) for the single act of vengeance against the ones who wronged them causing their human lives to end painfully and prematurely.
Dark-Hunters - the soulless, immortal beings, gifted with superior strength and psychic abilities, they walk alone in the night, belong to Artemis and fight in her name.
Their enemies - Daimons (a version of vampires if you will) are the descendants of the race Apollo (the god of sun) created and cursed because thousands of years ago a few of them killed the god's mistress and son causing a disaster for their whole race. Apollo cursed the Apollites to live in darkness, forced to feed from each other and die painfully at the age of twenty seven (the age Apollo's mistress was when she was murdered). The Apollites who chose to kill humans taking their souls to elongate their short lives and not decay in agony, become the Daimons and are hunted by the Dark-Hunters.
Were-Hunters (the lycanthropes) and Dream-Hunters (Greek gods of sleep) are a part of the story too.
The series itself is a long journey throughout the ever changing world with four major parts and a key character for every one of them (Acheron, Jaden, Savitar and the unknown fourth). And I believe with every new part some new twists, rules and maybe even creatures to enter the stage.
series is a world where ancient myths and modern civilization collide. Full of adventure, danger and humor. It's the series for you.
