Dream Warrior By Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dream Warrior (Dark-Hunter #17)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


We are the Dolophoni. Diligent. Vigilant. Fierce and inescapable. Servants of the Furies, we are the right hand of justice and no one stands before us.

The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and was banished into exile.

Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.

As a Dream-Hunter, Delphine has spent eternity protecting mankind from the predators who prey on our unconscious state. But now that her allies have been turned, she knows in order to survive, the Dream-Hunters need a new leader. Someone who can train them to fight their new enemies. Cratus is her only hope. But she is a bitter reminder of why he chose to lay down his arms.

Time is running out and if she can't win him to her cause, mankind will be slaughtered and the world we know will soon cease to exist.


A step-up from the last book. Delphine a dream-warrior is sent to bring Cratus, who also goes by the name Jericho, to Zeus but things don’t go to plan when one of the deadliest of all creatures, Azura persuades him to join her in vengeance, to kill Zeus and the Olympians. In an effort to get Cratus away from Azura and to go with her, Cratus’s brother Nike suggests Delphine seduce him. Unfortunately Delphine is captured by Noir, brother of Azura and offered to Jericho as a gift, a slave, her powers bound, naked and at his mercy, but Delphine is not helpless by any sense of the word, she is fierce and strong. Jericho starts off harsh, broken and cruel but he begins to trust Delphine and with that he lets his guard down slowly and we can see what his true nature is. Of course Azura and Noir end up turning on Cratus and it’s up to Delphine to try to save him until she is captured by Azura again, girl can’t get a break! Eventually Jericho saves her and they are together at last followed by a steamy romp, they make such a perfect pair. It was also nice to read about Nick and Ash getting on again and Nick not having so much hatred towards Acheron, back to their sarcastic selves:

“Jericho choked in surprise. “This is the Malachai?”
Ash grinned wickedly. “In all his pain in the ass glory.”
Nick glowered at Ash. “Are we through now, Dad? Can I go play with my friends if I promise to be a good boy? I’ll even try and make it home by curfew.””
