The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and walked into self-imposed exile. Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.
As a Dream-Hunter, Delphine has spent eternity protecting mankind from the predators who prey on our unconscious state. But now that her allies have been turned, she knows in order to survive, the Dream-Hunters need a new leader. Someone who can train them to fight their new enemies. Cratus is her only hope. But she is a bitter reminder of why he chose to lay down his arms.

Time is running out and if she can't win him to her cause, mankind will be slaughtered and the world we know will soon cease to exist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Warrior One of the best series I have read. Absolutely love the world Kenyon has created. Not a single book in this series has disappointed me so far, some books are definitely better then other. Not because they were better written but because I loved those characters more. I highly recommend it to fantasy lovers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Dream Warrior" by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Book 4 in the Dream-Hunter series. Book 16 in the Dark-Hunter series. I read this book in August 2014. This was my review. I really liked this addition to the Dark-Hunter/Dream-Hunter universe. The descriptions were so colorful, you could picture every scene. I loved the fact that the characters (both main and supporting) are flawed in some way but overcome those flaws throughout the book. Cratus has lived as a mortal for hundreds of years. All because he didn't do what he was told to do by Zeus, King of the Greek Gods, and kill a child. He is now known as Jericho. Now there is a war brewing between the gods and Jericho is asked to side with Zeus, the god that punished him. But why the hell would he do that when the other side will give him his godhood back? When he chooses sides, a beautiful female Dream-Hunter is "gifted" to him as a slave. She's innocent, she wasn't there when he was punished so he holds no ill will toward her. He may be a cold-hearted SOB but he would never take advantage of someone so vulnerable. Yet there is a pull toward her that he cannot deny. Delphine is a Dream-Hunter just trying to stay out of the gods' way. But she's pulled into a war she wants nothing to do with. She's been taken prisoner and her powers have been muted. Now she's a slave to the very ex-god she was supposed to seduce to Zeus's side in the war. Jericho had the power to kill gods and he has that power back again. Can she sway his anger against Zeus for the greater good? Will they both even survive the war that's coming? A very intricate story. A lot of information is given throughout about many of the other characters throughout the book. Sometimes it was a little difficult to keep track of who are all of the characters (and there are quite a few characters in this book). I found a lot of the story opened up more questions about other characters. Loved how Acheron was incorporated into the story, furthering along the story line about him and Nick. Right at the end, information is revealed about Nick (kind of) that futhers along his story line. Such a teaser from Ms. Kenyon keeping the reader wanting more. The chemistry between Jericho and Delphine was excellent. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to start the next one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Hunter I have read 18 of The Hunter Series. They are all so good I have a hard time putting them down. I will be so sad when I finish all of them. But...I will get and read all her other books so I will be fine for a while yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Never defy Zeus. It's bad for your health. I think this one is high up in my favorites of Kenyon's works. Its full of twists and turns and quite the interesting tie in to some characters we've met in a previous book. So here we have a god, cursed by Zeus for defying him when the order was to kill a child in the arms of its mother. So big bad Zeus is obviously really ticked off and cursed him for eternity for his act of mercy. This kinda comes back to bite him in the butt too, as he is unexpectedly reunited with the child he saved when he has to save it from some really interesting demons. And in a heartwarming twist, child and mum are reunited once again after centuries of being apart, each thinking the other dead. Quite sweet and quite surprising who the mum is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sherrilyn sure knows how to write a story. This book is great. For the overall series, there are things that start to fall into place and make sense in the book, but then there are new twists and it just gets you excited and wanting to find out what happens. With this book, a new war has started and Cratus and Delphine are right in the middle of it. Who will be on the side of evil or good, and what are the gods, demons, damions, and the hunters willing to do to win and protect everyone. Lots of action, couldn't put this one down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Okay. Yeah. Wow!! Sherri did it again!! After reading this, I disregard everything I said about Upon the Midnight Clear. Except for the size 14 font. I finally get it....Sherri is an absolute genius. Gods forgive me for ever doubting her. I loved how Cratus evoked sympathy in me from the first moment in the prolouge he stepped into the hall of Gods. It's like he's real. And Delphine, though a bit under-developed, she was great too. I was really surprised the AG wanted her as a philanthropist lol. Now the cliffhanger ending........I have my theories but I won't post them here. I actually have many theories, questions and hypotheses that I wont post here for fear of spoiling this wonderful book for my fellow readers. I will say this though....Read Upon the Midnight Clear first if you want to understand the epilouge of this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confusing...but good This was the latest in the Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter series. While it was good, it wasn't great. I find that I'm really starting to get confused with the characters as there are too many. It was fine when the Dark Hunters had their stories and the Dream Hunters had theirs, but now their stories are starting to belend together. It's just one big mess of characters that seem to pop up for no reason. I did enjoy see Ash in all his emo glory. I can't wait for the next book which is Fang and Aimee's story, Bad Moon Rising. I prefer the Dark Hunters to the Dream Hunters. And can I just say enough with the whole end the books with a shocking secrets about Nick. We get it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad...but not exactly great either I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. I've read all the books in her dark-hunter and dream-hunter series. But her last few books have not been up to the same level of quality as her first ones. However, Dream Warrior was definitely better than One Silent Night in my opinion. It was definitely an engaging read and I was really happy to see some characters from her previous books (especially Jaden). I still have complaints though. Firstly, some of the characters' names were really similar to each other. Normally that doesn't bother me, but this time I was always getting confused between Jared and Jaden. And another thing is that Jericho's character was too similar to Zarek. He wasn't unique to me and that personally took away some of the appeal of this book. Overall, it wasn't as amazing as some of her previous work, but it wasn't bad either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing Read! This book was explosive from the very beginning. This series was always fast paced and exciting but now with the way things have changed and are moving along its only going to get more exciting. I wonder if we will see more alliances in the future with unlikely people who are now foes. I feel Nick is being an idiot, but with these new requites Ash brought in its bound to get more interesting in novels to come. The main characters were really interesting, and yet sad with what they, especially Cratus, went through. Looking forward to the next novel!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money Dark Hunter fans While I am a huge fan of her earlier Dark Hunter books, I can't help but say how hokey and tired Kenyon's writing has become. I was hoping she'd get her groove back with this latest installment but I cringed far too many times while reading it. Besides overused cutesy one-liners it seemed really rushed towards the end as if Kenyon was wanting it over too. Her first books had characters and story lines that kept you enthralled -Julian, Kyrian, Val, Ash and Vane to name a few. By all means invest in those novels and save your money on this one. Sadly, this series has been sliding downhill for a while and it's time to put it to rest. There's a new queen in town and her name is Kresley Cole. Trust me, you'll thank me later.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More Please! This was a good read and in true SK fashion, the saga continues. This was definitely a page-turner and it was very interesting to learn that someone is related to the Malachai! Can't wait to see what happens next!
