I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.

Seize the Night (Dark-Hunter #7) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Seize The Night (Dark-Hunter, Book 7) Book club edition by sherrilyn kenyon published by St. Martin's Press (2005) [Hardcover] - --N/A--

Rating: 3.5 of 5


Seize the Night is the first and only novel of the Dark-Hunter series I've read. For me, a guilty pleasure. It was what I expected: great chemistry between Tabitha and Valerius, just enough "romance," a dynamic world - entertaining overall. The last three to four chapters felt like a mad dash to wrap everything up, though.


What I most appreciated was, despite this being my first read in the series, I didn't feel like I was missing huge chunks of information; the novel felt like a complete story.
