What ​do you get when you have one immortal Viking warrior no one can remember five minutes after he leaves their presence, a princess on the run for her life, and one seriously annoyed demigod? Basically, you get my life.

It started out simple enough. One night I went to save a woman in trouble. The next thing I knew, the doorway to hell had opened and out stepped Daimons--vampires the likes of which I'd never seen before. Led by the son of Apollo, they are out to end the curse that has banished them all to darkness. The only problem with that is they have to kill Cassandra Peters to do it and if she dies, so dies the sun, the earth and all who dwell here. Life's just a bowl full of cherries, ain't it?

Brought together by fate, it's now my job to protect a daughter of the very race I have been hunting for centuries. Neither of us dares to trust the other. But she is the only one who remembers me… More than that, with her courage and strength, she is the only one… (tovább)

Sherrilyn Kenyon: Kiss of the Night

Wulf imádnivaló volt. Nagyon nagyon sajnáltam az átka miatt, de Cassandra nagyon jó partnere lett neki. A vége kicsit keserédes lett. Ja, és Katra nagyon rejtélyes karakter.

Sherrilyn Kenyon: Kiss of the Night

Sírtam, nevettem, meglepődtem. Habár túl sok izgulnivaló nem akadt a végkifejlet miatt, volt benne néhány érdekes fordulat, és nagyon tetszett az, ami a Phantom Lover-ben is megjelent, hogy Kenyonnál nem minden fekete és fehér. Ahogy Wulf, eddig én sem nagyon gondolkodtam az Apollitákról; jó volt megismerni őket.
Wulf nem az esetem, de találkozhattam Zarekkel (5 *), Simivel és Acheronnal (5*), és totál bele vagyok esve Urianbe (10*).
Egyébként nagyon örülök, hogy kotnyelességemben elolvastam Ash könyvét korábban, mert így tudom, hogy kicsoda Kat, és így sokkal érdekesebb a dolog. Hiába, valamiféle bizarr örömmel tölt el, hogy olyat tudok, amit még Ash sem tud – a történet ezen pontján legalábbis.

Sherrilyn Kenyon: Kiss of the Night

Még mindig nem tudom megszeretni Cassandrát és Wulfot, de szerencsére sok érdekes dolog történik a sorozat egészének szempontjából, szóval már csak amiatt is jó volt újraolvasni :)

„How can you do that?”
„I'm a telepath. I know your thoughts even before you do.”
„Then why are you being such an asshole?”
„Because I'm a telepath, not an empath. I couldn't care less how you feel, only what you think. […]”

page 206, chapter 9


„Boy,” Wulf said sternly, „you better check that tone.”
„Yeah, yeah, ya scare me,” Chris said irritably. „I'm even wetting my pants while in your terrifying, gut-wrenching presence. See me shiver and quiver?Ooo, ahhh, ooo.”
Wulf shook his head at his Squire. The boy had no sense whatsoever to taunt him. „I knew I should have taken you out in the woods as an infant and left you there to die.”
Chris snorted."Ooo, nasty Viking humor. I'm actually surprised my father didn't have to present me to you for inspection at birth. Good thing you couldn't afford thebarnaútburdr , huh?"

Chris had taken up with a group of young female Apollites that Phoebe had introduced him to when she'd taken him shopping to buy electronics that would keep him from being bored. The Apollite girls thought his dark coloring was „exotic” and they adored the fact that he was so into computers and technology.
„I have died and gone to Valhalla!” Chris had exclaimed the night he met them. „These women appreciate a man with a brain and they don't care that I don't tan. […]”

„Yeah,” Zarek said, sneering even more. „And I'm freezing, so can we rush this little get-together so I can kill some assholes and get back to the beach where I belong?”
„If you hate it here so much,” Talon asked, „why did you agree to come?”
In a subtle gesture of flipping Talon off, Zarek scratched his eyebrow with his middle finger, which was covered with a long, sharp metallic claw. „Astrid wants me to make friends. I don't know why. Some weird woman thing. She's trying to make me more sociable.”

page 324, chapter 16


Dante approached Zarek and the two of them had a mutual sneer-off. „Law of the jungle. The betrayee gets to eat the betrayer.”
Zarek gave him a droll stare. „Law of my jungle. Kill them all and let Hades sort them out.”
Dante actually laughed at that. „I like this one, Ash. He understands us.”
„Gee, Z,” Ash said jokingly. „I think you may have found a new friend after all. That should make Astrid happy.”

„You lie.”
„Perhaps. But perhaps not.”
Oh, yeah, no one could play the game of vagueness better than Acheron. He was a master at saying nothing and making people doubt the very air they breathed.

„Life is a tapestry woven by the decisions we make.”
„Don't give me that pseudo quasi psychobabble bullshit, Ash. I'm tired, I had my ass kicked, […]. Just once in eternity, answer one fucking question.”

Wulf let out a tired breath. „I don't know. A bolt-hole opened and a group of Daimons came out. The leader of them had black hair, by the way. I didn't think that was possible.”
„It's not his natural hair color. Trust me. Stryker discovered L'Oréal a while back.”

„Oh, I'm going to be sick,” Cassandra said, stepping back to lean on the sofa arm. „This can't be happening. It's just not possible.”
„Oh, well,” Kat said sarcastically, „let's not have reality intrude now, shall we? I mean, hey, you're a mythological being descended from mythological beings and you're in the house of an immortal guardian no human can remember five minutes after they leave his presence. Who's to say that you can't get pregnant in a dream by him? What? We're jumping into the realm of reality now?”


„Christopher, I happen to be a Viking in the middle of winter in Minnesota. Lack of a deep tan goes with the whole Nordic territory. Why do you think we raided Europe anyway?”
„Because it was there?”
„No, we wanted to thaw out.”
