Sherrliyn Kenyon has done it again! Night embrace is the 3rd book in the dark hunter series and for me the best so far although who know because each book get's better and better.
In night embrace the main story is about talon of the morrigantes, he is a dark hunter and likes his job. While out one night talon hears the cry of a woman and when he finds her there are 4 daimons about to attack her. He tells the woman to run away and then start's to go after the daimons when out of no where talon is grabbed around the waist and thrown in front of a mardi gras float and not just any float is one is of a god, one talon knows well.
When talon wakes up he has no idea where he is all he does know is that he is surrounded by alot of pink and is completly nakes. After a while a beautiful woman enters the room and he realises that it is the woman he saved from the daimons. As they look into each others eyes there is a moment of pure longing lust and secretly they wonder why. The womans name is sunshine she is an artist who is a bit on the flakey side but is a fighter and has a great heart. Talons must call his friends to bring new clothes to him since there was a laundry mishap and when they come they get a good laugh at his expence, a dark hunter is pink ruffles!!
When sunshine returns she is curious why her two friends husbands Kyrian and Julian are in her house but then learns that they are good friends with talon. When the guys leave things really start to heat up and the passion flaires in EVERY room in the house and when it's all over and it's time for talon to leave all sunshine says is that it's been fun. IT'S BEEN FUN?? She should be the perfect woman for him she want's no commentment from him and he never stays around to get to know anyone but something about her makes him crazy and he just cane get enough of her or be away from her.
As the story continues talon and sunshine realize that they knew each other those many centuaries ago but when she asks talon to open up to her, he can't because he is falling hard for her and if it ever becomes a know fact then sunshine is dead, because he is cursed forever to be alone and he won't let anything happen to her. So it's the question of If you love someone you let them go or do you fight to the death for them?
Another great thing about this book is that we are introduced to alot of new characters as well as ones that have been in all the other books like Acheron. Acheron is the "boss" of the dark hunters and he himself is the very first one. He is the last atlantean know and he is scary as hell and very tight lipped about himself. His story is very interesting how he wrestles his feeling for the god artemis and his friendship with the hunters and all the power that he holds.
Then there is Zarek he is the phycotic hunter who cares for no one and he is very deadly that is why he lives out in alaska where he is away from everyone. He was the slave to the romans, to valerious(who was the one who killed Kyrian) He is brought down to new orleans to help fight the daimons during mardi gras because that is when they come out to play the most and something evil is definatily brewing. Zarek is caught drinking from a human and then fighting with the police so acheron just doesn't know what to do with him, but in the end he really proves himself to everyone and I can't wait to read his story.
There are also cameo's by Kyrian and julian and of course nick the squire is in it too.
Oh, and I won't even get started with the were-hunters and the clubs the bears run!!
So much info, such a great book. Again I recommend it to all you bdb fans and just to anyone in general who likes romance mixed with action/adventure. I can't get enough!!
