One Silent Night by Sherrilynn Kenyon

Stryker has plans to eliminate all dark hunters and humans like in order to avenge his sister's death.  When an old enemy returns all his plans are turned to dust.  Also add his ex-wife into the mix and things get really steamy.  Zephyra is the only woman he has ever loved, and also the one woman who could possibly stop him.  Not only does he plot the death of humans and dark-hunters alike, but he also thinks he can bring down one of the most powerful goddesses around: Apollmyi.  The dark hunters need to figure out what Stryker's plans are and how they can stop him before it is too late.

This is the book that started my obsession with the Dark Hunter series.  I kept walking past the book at work and decided to step out of my comfort zone and read a romance novel, and boy was I blown away.  I haven't stopped reading Kenyon since and have a very nice library of her books (I need to add to it as well).  I think what really drew me to the series is the heavy mythological basis it has.  Not only does it play on the Greek/Roman mythos, but also other mythologies as well as creates some of it's own.  Kenyon takes the things I love most and creates something new to love.  After reading this novel, I needed more from her.  And thus began my slight obsession with the Dark Hunter world.

Kenyon does a fantastic job with not only this book, but all the books.  While this is considered a paranormal romance novel, there is so much more included.  She does not focus completely on the physical relationship between a couple, but shows them growing and building trust and respect for one another.  Every character she creates are interesting and complex that one book doesn't seem to be enough to tell their tale.  She also includes minor characters that make you want to know their story and anticipate it as the next read.  It is completely easy to become enthralled in Kenyon's stories.  While it was brief, there was interesting dynamic between Nick, Stryker and Ash.  Because their encounters were brief it makes one wonder what is the story behind those three.

I recommend this book and the series to well...everyone.  If you enjoy paranormal romance novels, this is perfect.  If you like a little action and adventure, Dark Hunters are perfect for you as well.  There is a little bit of everything for everyone.  I give this novel a 4 out of 5 stars.
