I am consuming Dark-Hunter books like candy. The only one of the books I truly love is the one about Zarek, but I really enjoy the rest, mainly for the world structures and Ash and Simi etc. And yeah, Zarek is my favorite dark-hunter (well, Ash is, but he really isn’t a dark-hunter) which, considering he is bona-fide psychotic, says something about me. I guess I like him the best because he might have a lot of angst and issues but he is not all mushy and weepy about it. And I totally love that even after his HEA with Astrid he is still totally anti-people-person. He is incredibly in love with Astrid (but not sentimental either yay) but that doesn’t translate into his being a Polyanna (because my problem with someone like Kyrian or Julian is they adjust too well, too quick considering how much trauma is in their past). In fact, I am currently reading the Viking book (blanking on the name) and am not too keen on it but Ash and Zarek and etc have just appeared as back-up and I finally got into it. I love Zarek’s attitude which is basically ‘Astrid sent me here. She thinks I should make friends. Must be some weird woman thing. I am just here for the killing. Let’s kill things so I can go back to the beach.’ HEH.

So basically my favorites are the psycho (Zarek) and the masochist (Ash). The rest are woobies of various sorts and thus apparently not my speed. This is deeply disturbing.

Ummm. I am sort of into a fantasy-romance series (of books) now. Occasionally I read romance books and this is one of those times.

Yeah.

Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Wtf is wrong with me?

Even I can tell they have not much redeeming value, and non-existing literary one. But they are fun and a fast read. And I am always a sucker for series with interconnecting worlds.

Especially when these words involve super-angsty hotties who fight vampires and snarky caring women who make it all better plus magic, Greek Gods, and werewolves of some sort.

I can overlook the fact that the book I am reading (number 10. Apparently there won’t be too many more so yay for me coming close to the end) is set in Seattle and I am sorry, I cannot imagine a less vampire-prone place.

So yeah. Addicted.

Even though it hurts my head to think of the fact that their boss (who I actually want a book about, stat) is Artemis’ torture object sextoy boyfriend. You know, the Virgin Goddess?

Um.

Butheissoincrediblytorturedandtotallyhotandsuperalpha

Yes.

But then if he thinks Acheron is an unfortunate moniker, he should check out ‘Flawless Flower’ from Handsome Siblings wuxia drama. How’s that for a tortured hottie name? And he doesn’t have being a God to help him get out of sticky situations.

ETA: Checked. Book about the guy in 2008. Ahhhh, I love predictability.

ETA2: Personally, I don't think a guy who is 11 thousand years old, runs an immortal vampire hunter society, needs regular meals of immortal blood (as in biting) to keep from turning into an evil super vampire, has a relationship with a Goddess that can be at best labelled abusive (on her part) and generally more issues than all the editions of Time put together, makes a good partner, but IMO.
