PNR Review: Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunters) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Dance With the Devil" the 4th book in her Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Product Description

Zarek's Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can't trust anyone ... not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

My Review:

Zarek of Moesia is banished to Alaska after the events that happened in Talon's book.  Acheron pleads for his life and makes a deal with Artemis not to kill him.  She agrees that if Zarek is found innocent by Astrid one of the Greek judges she will let him live.  Astrid can sense a goodness in Zarek and is quite surprised by his kindness and gentleness with her.  In the process she falls in love with him and him with her.

Zarek is my favorite Dark Hunter and his book is one of my favorites.  Zarek is an example of dark and tortured hero with a good heart and honor.  He blames himself for the wrong doings that have happened to others even though he doesn't cause them.  He has been betrayed by his family and everyone that he trusts.  He doesn't think he is worthy of love and he even helps people who don't trust him.

Zarek is introduced in Talon's book Night Pleasures and he's also a recurring character.


Thanks St. Martin's Press for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
