URBAN FANTASY ROMANCE REVIEW: Dark Hunter 20: Retribution - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Release Date: 02/08/11


Hired gunslinger William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave - until the day he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunt ers, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he'd spend eternity protecting the humans he'd once considered prey. Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised with one belief: Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, William and Abigail must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they've sworn to protect.


The 20th novel in the Dark Hunter series and one that returns to some of the themes explored in the second as Sherrilyn returns to native American myths with her own special twist. The title is wonderfully creative, the characters outstanding and whilst they could have made their own way through on their own to a certain degree, the bonds between them make them almost unstoppable as an elder god or two will attest.

Add to this the wonderful spark of romance, great pace and break neck speed combat and overall it’s a title that will fulfil all the readers needs as this is a cracking addition to the series and one that I really had a hard time putting down. Great stuff.
