Devil May Cry

Official information

Devil May Cry Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Dark-Hunter

Publisher: St. Martin's

An ancient Sumerian god, Sin was one of the most powerful among his pantheon... Until the night Artemis stole his godhood by trickery and left him one step from death.

For millennia, this ex-god turned Dark-Hunter has dreamed only of regaining his powers and seeking revenge on her. If only life were that simple.

Unfortunately he has bigger fish or in his case, demons, to fry. The lethal gallu that were buried by his pantheon are now stirring and they are hungry for human flesh. Their only goal is to destroy mankind and anyone else who gets in their way. Lucky Sin is the only one who can stop it, that is if a certain woman doesn't kill him first.

Trust of any kind died in him the moment Artemis tricked him, but now he must rely on another woman or see an annihilation of biblical proportions.

Enemies have always made strange bedfellows, but never more so than when the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Now a man who knows only betrayal must trust the one person most likely to hand him to the demons. Artemis may have stolen his godhood, but this one has stolen his heart. The only question is will she keep it or feed it to the ones who want him dead?

My review

Devil May Cry is a book I was definitely waiting for, but while it was so much better than its latest predecessors, I still have a few bones to pick.

Katra was a strong heroine though it was hard to believe her as eleven thousand year old virgin, who was never tempted by a man. And if so, thus making her interest in Sin and especially their relationship too fast. The romance jumped from 'I'll kill you' to 'I love you' in about two days time. Though the transition was a smooth one. And action wise, the book was truly entertaining and fast-paced.

Sin was a hero I could easily fall in love with, though in comparison of Sherrilyn Kenyon's other Dark-Hunter heroes, he was just too much alike (sexy, dangerous, betrayed, misunderstood and healed with a gentle touch).

Needless to say, Devil My Cry was interesting, but not entirely original. However, the parts with Ash, I simply loved. Even cried. It was emotional as hell. I simply wish Katra would've done something or at least tried to help him after finding out some facts of Ash's and Artemis relationship.

I could probably mention few other details that stuck in my head, but it's just details and the book as the whole is a strong Dark-Hunter story that is able to keep its reader on the edge of the seat. It has everything: likable heroes, entertaining moments, emotional moments, strong villain, inner turmoil, danger, secrets, an intricate world (confusing if the book is read as a stand-alone) and even secondary characters for the future books (I hope!).

All you have to do, is open the first page of

Devil May Cry.
