Kiss of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Kiss of the Night (Dark-Hunter, #4)

Kiss of the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Fourth in the Dark-Hunter series

5 stars

Wulf is an ancient Viking warrior with a useful but extremely aggravating power—amnesia. Only the people in his bloodline can remember him everyone else instantly forgets him once he leaves their presence. Then he meets Cassandra at a club. Cassandra starts to have dreams about Wulf, vivid dreams that make her remember him. Cassandra isn’t human… she’s half-Apollite who is destined to die in eight months. She doesn’t want to continue her bloodline because she thinks only terrible things will happen. I hesitated to read Kiss of the Night because of the description in the back, I mean an Apollite and a Dark-Hunter made me hesitate. Then I got bored and finally decided to pick it up and read it. I’m so glad I did. Just think of the incomplete life I would live without reading this book. It wasn’t as amazing as Zarek’s but it was still really good. This book made me feel so many emotions. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to throw things, and break someone’s face. This was a roller coaster of emotions, but the emotions were good emotions when it comes to a book. I should stop rambling, let’s move onto the characters.

The main female character is Cassandra. When I read the description that she was a half-Apollite I was just baffled.

I hadn’t been expecting that at all from Kenyon. It was risky and bold, but an excellent decision. Why I hesitated to read this I don’t know but it was so good. Cassandra was a really good character. Aside from her having vivid dreams and being an Apollite she seemed pretty human to me. I liked Cassandra and I don’t want to spoil anything about her so moving on.

Kick-Butt Heroine Scale: 8.5

The main male character is Wulf. Wulf was a surprisingly great character. I really liked him and he was fun to read about. It was great to read about Wulf and Cassandra’s relationship. I think they are a great couple. Again I don't want to spoil anything. It's such a great story and read.

Swoon Worthy Scale: 9

The Villain- So much villainy goodness and that’s all I have to say.

Villain Scale: 8

Character Scale: 9

This was definitely one of the best Dark-Hunter novels and it left me craving more. This is kind of Kenyon novels that I look forward to and enjoy.

Cover Thoughts: The cover is cool, but why does Wulf look like he was sketched in front of a club scene. It works, but it’s still kind of weird looking.
