Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Night Play (Dark-Hunter, #5; Were-Hunter, #2)

Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Fifth in the Dark- Hunter series, First in the Were-Hunter series

5 stars

Bride McTierney is heartbroken after her boyfriend of six years breaks up with her. Even if he was using her from the start of their relationship it still hurts. Then a man who takes her breath away steps into her store. Vane Kattalakis is a Were-Hunter and he thought he would never see Bride again. The first time he saw her she didn’t notice him while he was protecting Talon’s girlfriend, Sunshine, but he couldn’t stop thinking about her. Vane has more enemies than he can count and he doesn’t want to risk putting Bride in danger, but the Fates have other plans. I was in anticipation to read Vane’a book ever since I met him in Night Embrace. When I finally found the book at my library I ran off with the book in my hands and checked it out. The minute I got home, I jumped right into the book and was sucked into the world Kenyon created. This was a really good book. Is it my favorite in the series? No, but I love it.

The main female character is Bride. Bride’s name is pronounced Bree-dee. Bride is a normal human being. It’s nice to read about a human without psychic powers or an immortal. Her being human made her easy to relate to and she had normal insecurities, even if they got annoying at times. Bride isn’t my favorite heroine, but she is definitely a good one.

Kick-Butt Heroine Scale: 8

The main male character is Vane. I love Vane and he’s one of my favorite males in the DH world. He has a lot of problems and family issues. I mean his parents relationship is messed up (I’ll talk about that later in the review). Vane is a great character and he’s definitely swoon worthy.

Swoon Worthy Scale: 9.5

The Villain- Vane’s mom is the most prominent villain in this novel, but I’m not going into detail about her craziness.

Villain Scale: 7

Vane comes from a big family. There’s Fang, Anya, Fury, Dare, and Star, Eli is also his half-brother. Fang and Fury are my favorite of the family and I can’t wait to read more about them, especially Fang. The family dynamic is just messed up. Vane’s father is Katagarian, which are animals that can shift into human form during puberty and his mom is Arcadian, which means they are humans who can take on animal form. The Arcadians think that the Katagarias are animals, but I think the Arcadians are the real animals.

Character Scale: 9

I love the Dark-Hunters, but the Were-Hunters are getting my attention too. I can’t wait to get back into this series, but I have two more library books to read before I can start Unleash the Night. Sherrilyn Kenyon doesn’t disappoint and the Were-Hunters are definitely something to look out for.

Cover Thoughts: Vane looks sexy and I like the blue and the moon. I think the cover is eerie and sexy, but not too much.
