REVIEW

"A Book Where Dreams of Love Come True!"

Sherrilyn Kenyon delves deeper into the politics and legends of mythology to bring a high octane adventure in love and the meaning of sacrifice. The Dream Hunter takes us back a decade in her Dark Hunter series, to learn more of the Dream Hunter realm. What I love about Ms. Kenyon's writings is she knows how weave an awesome story while opening the world of mythology and ancient languages.

The Dream Hunter opens with Arikos of the Skoti who are devoid of emotion, is making a deal with Hades to allow him to become human for two weeks and experience the true physical and emotional connection to a woman he has been entering the dreams of. However nothing is EVER given freely in the realm of the Gods and so being Hades he must have the soul of the woman when this is over otherwise he will claim Arikos soul in her stead.

Dr. Megeara Kafieri comes from a family that soul purpose is to find the lost city of Atlantis. This goal has resulted in great loss of some family members be it literally or emotionally. And although this frustrates Megeara, or Geary as her friends call her, she still finds herself promising her father on his death bed that she will continue his work to find Atlantis. With so much energy dedicated to this one pursuit the only true release Geary finds for herself are in her very erotic dreams at night.

I found the Dream Hunter to be very different in some aspects to Sherrilyn Kenyon's other books. It gave more history and background to more than just the primary characters. I appreciated the fact that she delved into the Greek mythos and other Gods and Goddesses politics. Ms. Kenyon's reasoning behind Atlantis and the use of Apollymi in this book gave more dimensions not only to this book but the others in her Dark Hunter series.

I found the pace of The Dream Hunter to be much like the ocean she writes about. At times the waves come and you relax and go with the flow of the story. And then Ms. Kenyon twists the plot and you find yourself in deep turbulent waters reading as fast as you can to try figure out what will happen next! The Dream Hunter is a great addition to the Dark Hunter series and I highly recommend it.

SUMMARY

In the ethereal world of dreams, there are champions who fight to protect the dreamer and there are demons who prey on them...

Arik is such a predator. Condemned by the gods to live eternity without emotions, Arik can only feel when he's in the dreams of others. For thousands of years, he's drifted through the human unconscious, searching for sensation. Now he's finally found a dreamer whose vivid mind can fill his emptiness.

Dr. Megeara Kafieri watched her father ruin himself and his reputation as he searched to prove Atlantis was real. Her deathbed promise to him to salvage his reputation has now brought her to Greece where she intends to prove once and for all that the fabled island is right where her father said it was. But frustration and bad luck dog her every step. Especially the day they find a stranger floating in the sea. His is a face she's seen many times.... in her dreams.

What she doesn't know is that Arik holds more than the ancient secrets that can help her find the mythical isle of Atlantis. He has made a pact with the god Hades: In exchange for two weeks as a mortal man, he must return to Olympus with a human soul. Megeara's soul.

With a secret society out to ruin her expedition, and mysterious accidents that keep threatening her life, Megeara refuses to quit. She knows she's getting closer to Atlantis and as she does, she stumbles onto the truth of what Arik really is.

For Arik his quest is no longer simple. No human can know of a Dream-Hunter's existence. His dream of being mortal has quickly turned into his own nightmare and the only way to save himself will be to sacrifice the very thing he wanted to be human for. The onlyquestion is, will he?
