One Silent Night By Sherrilyn Kenyon

One Silent Night (Dark-Hunter #16)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


In the world of the Dark-Hunters, all hell's breaking loose...

Stryker has sent word and is gathering his forces.

While the world carries on unawares, Stryker, who leads an army of demons and vampires, is plotting an all out onslaught against his enemies—which, unfortunately for us, includes the entire human race.

To avenge his sister, Stryker prepares to annihilate the Dark-Hunters. But things go awry when his oldest enemy returns. Enter his ex-wife. Zephyra. Just when he thought nothing could stop him, he’s now embroiled in a centuries old war with a shrew who gives new meaning to pain.

New battle lines are being drawn as the Dark-Hunters rally for a final showdown on ONE SILENT NIGHT

Stryker, the son of Apollo is out to kill Acheron but Artemis will not allow that to happen, she enlists the help of Zephyra who she sends to take out Stryker. The shocker is that Zephyra and Stryker share a common link, a daughter the he had no clue about named Medea. The main story between Zephyra and Stryker didn’t really capture my attention as much as reading more about Nick Gautier, he was the highlight of this book. Learning he was Malachai and he had unlocked his power, he is the last of the breed, much to Acheron’s surprise and is determined to protect Nick from those out to kill him, however Nick now possess the power to destroy Ash and intends to do just that. I was glad when Nick and Ash teamed up, there’s hope for them to reunite again. Acheron always has some of the best one liners:

So are we going to continue glaring angrily at each other while we pose in our tough stances? Or use our time to work out a plan that hopefully doesn’t end with our mutual deaths?”

Over all it was a pretty average read, not as good as the previous Dark-Hunter novels.
