For centuries Talon of the Morrigantes has been a Dark-Hunter. Following the murder of his sister, Talon was dying from a wrongful execution when the goddess Artemis approached him offering an act of vengeance against the one(s) who wronged him, as well as immortality and power, in exchange for Talon pledging his service to her. As one of Artemis' Dark-Hunters, Talon has sworn to fight Daimons and rescue the human souls they've captured. Talon has never had cause to regret this choice—until he meets Sunshine Runningwolf.

Sunshine and Talon's instantaneous attraction generates a lot of heat. They don't realize that their meeting was arranged by forces bent on destruction. Gods Dionysus and Camulus want vengeance on Talon as well as the return of their former powers, so they devise a deadly, dangerous plot. And what better way than to suddenly confront him with the reincarnation of his beloved deceased wife?

The second novel in Sherrilyn Kenyon's hot series is just as exciting, sexy and thrilling as the first. Kenyon has hit on a fabulous premise that promises to be fodder for many more outstanding page-turners. (Jul., 416 pp., $6.99)
