"fresh and a stand alone fantasy"
How far one has fallen thinks reporter Susan Michaels as
she reads her re-edited article on a boy eaten by killer
moths. She was once a proud Washing Post Beltway journalist
but a scandal has left her working in Seattle for the Daily
Inquisitor covering shock thrillers and so called true
accounts of the supernatural including Elvis sightings.
A depressed Susan believes she may have a lead back to
credibility at a nearby animal shelter where she hopes to
obtain information on the serial killer The Seattle Slayer.
That tip proves like everything else of recent uncovering
false, but she is conned into taking home a cat that she
proves allergic to even when he shapeshifts into the hunk
Ravyn Contis who insists that he is an immortal Dark Hunter
guardian fighting deadly Daimons in a war in which the
stake in mankind.
Though the locale shifts from New Orleans to Seattle, the
basic ingredients remain the same as Dark Hunter meets
capable mortal lover while battling deadly Daimons; yet
Sherrilyn Kenyon showcases her creative talent by making
DARK SIDE OF THE MOON feel totally fresh and a stand alone
fantasy (though a sequel is coming). Readers will
appreciate the humorous teaming up of the allergic human
and the Cat-Man as they skirmish with Daimons in a
delightfully exciting story line.

A Dark-Hunter Novel
**2006 PEARL WINNER - BEST SHAPESHIFTER ROMANCE**
**2006 PEARL NOMINEE - BEST OVERALL PARANORMAL ROMANCE**
Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires... yeah. Just another day in her life.
Then she gets talked into adopting a cat she's allergic to. Her first thought is to neuter the cat. But when he turns out to be a gorgeous shapeshifting man who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer she thinks: not so fast. Next thought: seek professional help.
Susan doesn't know what to believe, but as she's drawn into a paranormal world, she comes to realize that the story that could bring her credibility is too unbelievable to expose. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers, it's a matter of saving lives and souls, and her only ally is a man she's allergic to. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, it's always dangerous. But never more so than when one very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is... will she?
