Night Embrace By Sherrilyn Kenyon

Night Embrace (Dark-Hunter #2)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


As an ancient Celtic warrior, Talon made one giant mistake— he killed the son of the war god Camulus. In anger and outrage, Camulus cursed him—Everyone Talon loved would die a horrible death in front of his eyes. But when Talon’s clan slaughters his young sister while he watches, powerless to stop them, he sells his soul for vengeance against them. Two thousand years later in modern-day New Orleans, as part of the bargain he made, he’s now an immortal protector who keeps mankind safe from the creatures who would prey on them. A life he’s happy with until he meets Sunshine—an offbeat artist who reminds him what it’s like to really live. Unfortunately for both of them, it’s Mardi Gras, and New Orleans is teeming with a complex plot of ancient gods, including Camulus, who are now out to re-conquer the world. The gloves are off and it’s time for a rematch with Talon out to save everyone, including the artist who makes him insane.


Some real humorous parts in this book like when Talon wakes up naked and Starla starts calling him Steve because he looks like a Steve and how Sunshine shrunk his leather pants in the ash but managed to keep his Snoopy Pez dispenser safe, then Starla and Sunshine start debating whether Talon is a vampire or a werewolf, hilarious. Not to mention that Mr. Tough tattooed Dark-Hunter happens to be a collector of Pez dispensers and his pet crocodiles. The witty banter is one of the thing I enjoyed the most, also the hot steamy scenes of course, that’s a given. Sunshine is adorable, her forgetfulness and her unique nature are fantastic, she is one of the more original characters I have come across in a book. Sunny being Nynia re-incarnate was a surprise and a half, the woman Talon loved, his wife, who died in his arms. I love the way the books flow in this series, packed full of action and story but it isn’t too much to handle. The characters leap off the page and you can’t help but get total enveloped by the situations they find themselves in.
