PNR Review: Time Untime (Dark-Hunters) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Time Untime" 12th the book in her Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon comes the next thrilling installment in her blockbuster Dark-Hunter series.

The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy …

Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.

The Time Untime approaches …

Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind.

What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life. One who belongs to a world the scientist in her refuses to believe is real.

Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has found the one person he can’t fight. The one person who, against his will, holds the most sacred part of him.

His heart.

But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once.

Will he be able to make it again?

My Review:

Ren Waya (short for Renegade) is the son of a Mayan Chieftain and a Greek Goddess but nursed by a demon.  He was unwanted by his father and ridiculed and excluded from his tribe because of his heritage and stutter.  In his past life he was known as the Keetoowah warrior Guardian who guarded was chosen to keep hell sealed while resetting the celestial calendar.  He allowed his body to be possessed by great evil which resulted in him making a huge mistake and people to fear him even after 11,000 years have passed.

He allowed a women to get close to him and he learned she was an agent who worked for evil.  She lead him down the wrong path and he was possessed by The Grizzly Spirit who made him a very deadly weapon.  His half-brother Coyote killed him and Artemis has made him immortal to make up for all his wrong doings and get revenge.

Kateri Avani is an archaelogist whose grandmother left her a precious stone to protect as the Keeper of Legend.  Teri never believed her grandmother's superstitions until she is attacked by malevolent beasts she has second thoughts.  Lucky for her Ren and his some of his friends Sundown, Acheron, Sasha, Urian and Nick. are there to help.  When she meets Ren she recognizes him as the man who has haunted her dreams but she's not sure if he's her savior or the one who kills her.

I really enjoyed the elements of the Native American and Mayan history interwoven with the Greek pantheon.  Really glad to meet up with old friends Talon and Sunshine (Teri's cousin and that was a surprise) again. 

I admire Ren for becoming the man he is today even after all the torture and humiliation he went through as a child and young man.
