Just when he thought things couldn’t get any worse . . .

Nick Gautier’s day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul.

His new principal thinks he’s even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can’t even mention and the girl he’s not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.

But more than that, he’s being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn’t learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them . . .

My Thoughts

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm beginning to tire of Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing. Well, at least her Dark-Hunter universe. I feel like I know it inside and out and am ready for something new, already! (Yes, I read the Belador book. It was awesome. But her other new series have been delayed for a ridiculous amount of time, and it's really beginning to disappoint me.)

Kenyon was the writer who really got me into paranormal romance and completely revamped (pun intended) my reading habits. I picked up Dark Side of the Moon at CVS while waiting for a prescription and was instantly hooked. But that was four years and twelve books ago. It's been tough since the long-awaited Bad Moon Rising, but Invincible really put the final nail in the coffin once I realized that, while the story was interesting, I wasn't at all emotionally invested in the characters.

I will be reading her other series, such as her science fiction romance and the Belador urban fantasy books. For now, though, I really need to take a break from anything remotely Dark Hunter-related and move on to something new.
