Dance with the Devil

Official information

Dance with the Devil Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Dark-Hunter

Publisher: St. Martin's

Zarek's Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to put a hurt on anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

My review

Dance with the Devil has the intensity I crave in romance novels. The gut-wrenching story that manages to make me furious about the injustice. Make me cry for the hero's pain and hold my breath whenever his inner turmoil is revealed.

This is the book that gets me emotionally involved even against my own will. That crawls under the skin and makes me shudder from sensory overload. This is the book that I can read again and again and still feel its power.

It is about Zarek of Moesia, the Dark-Hunter with the most vicious past, everybody hates and fears. Exiled to Alaska and now sentenced to death, he has only one chance to prove he is worth saving. And he doesn't even know he's being tested.

Dance with the Devil was pure bliss (and torture) to read. I couldn't get enough of it, refusing to put the book down even for a moment. And, in the same time I could hear my heart breaking more and more with every page I read.

I don't think mere words could describe how powerfully grabbing the story is. It's the force to be reckoned with. A page turner with both, sadness and humor. Intensity and softness. Laughter and tears. It is simply a Dance with the Devil
