Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunter, #3)

Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Third in the Dark-Hunter series

5 stars

Dance with the Devil takes place right after Night Embrace. Zarek has been sent back to Alaska after just getting out and being sent to New Orleans. Now he has Squires and an unknown creature after him that only Acheron and Artemis know where it came from. Not only that but Artemis has her evil heart set on him being executed, but Acheron wants Zarek proven innocent. So Astrid a nymph judge who is the sister of the three fates to judge Zarek’s innocence. Astrid’s judging comes with a price… becoming blind. The last time she fell in love with a Dark-Hunter it ended badly and she’s not letting Zarek get off without a fair judgment, no matter how sexy he sounds. Dance with the Devil is probably my favorite Dark-Hunter novel so far into the series. I have a little fangirl obsession with Zarek and I can’t help but get giddy when he’s mentioned. This book came back with a vengeance. If you’ve read my last review of Night Embrace you’ll know I wasn’t all that impressed with the main characters, but Kenyon brought it this time. Everything in this book was absolutely perfect. Argue with me all you want but I love this book and my judgment shall not be swayed. See what I did there; if you didn’t think about it for a second a read my quick summary.

The main female character is Astrid. Astrid was a pretty cool character. I have respect for since she was blind for pretty much the whole novel. Astrid was perfect for Zarek and I’m just glad she wasn’t a bitch or a crappy heroine.

Kick-Butt Heroine Scale: 8

The main male character is Zarek. Zarek, Zarek, Zarek. Omg I love Zarek. Here’s a picture of him from SK’s website.

Zarek’s life has been completely unfair. He’s constantly misjudged and he’s been in isolation for a bazillion years (I’m exaggerating, but it was a really long time). I love Zarek’s POV and he’s just such an interesting character.

Swoon Worthy Scale: Broke My Scale♥

The VillainSeriously read the book; there is more than one villain and I'm too lazy to talk about them all.

Villain Scale: 7.5

The supporting characters were just as amazing as the main characters. Sasha, Astrid’s shape-shifting wolf and best friend was funny. Simi, Acheron’s demon, is one of my favorite characters of the book and after progressing more into the series she has become one of my favorites. Acheron who is always a delight and I can’t wait to read his book. Valerius plays a big role in Zarek’s life and I wasn’t a big fan of him in this book.

Character Scale: 9.5

I think this book is amazing and words can’t describe how much I adore this book and neither do any cute gifs. So here are some pictures of Astrid and Zarek’s kids from SK’s website.

 Bob (Menecaeus) and Kyra.
Aren't they adorable?

Cover Thoughts: The cover I have on my list isn’t the one I read. I read the first one published that is absolutely hideous and I hate it. I like this one much more so I’m using it for my review and shelves. The man on the cover doesn't do Zarek justice. *shakes head*
