imageOut of all the mysterious boarders who call Sanctuary home, no one is more antisocial or withdrawn than Maxis Drago. But then, it’s hard to blend in with the modern world when you have a fifty foot wingspan.

Centuries ago, he was cursed by an enemy who swore to see him fall. An enemy who took everything from him and left him forever secluded.

But Fate is a bitch, with a wicked sense of humor. And when she throws old enemies together and threatens the wife he thought had died centuries ago, he comes back with a vengeance. Modern day New Orleans has become a battleground for the oldest of evils. And two dragons will hold the line, or go down in flames.

The Dragons have arrived! I’m a huge Dark-Hunter fan and I’m so excited about the new twists in the series storyline. Dragonbane is Max’s story and if you’re a fan of the series you know he’s remained a bit of mystery. We get all the details in his book and we get more dragons! Max and Seraphina’s story is full of heartbreak, danger, mystery and hot romance. I didn’t care for Seraphina when she was introduced but she grew on me and became a worthy mate for Max. Their chemistry was off the charts. If you’re a fan of the series you will love Dragonbane and if you’re new to the series I would recommend you start at the beginning to fully enjoy it. Each book has a HEA ending for different couples but the series needs to be read in order to fully appreciate the characters and series plot. I can’t wait for the next book to see what Sherrilyn Kenyon has in store for us next. The Dark-Hunter series keeps getting better and no one weaves a story like Sherrilyn Kenyon.

image imageThe #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger… as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she’s found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than twenty-five million copies of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

In the last few years, she has placed more than 65 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters, The League, and Chronicles of Nick.

Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel, her Dark-Hunter novels are a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins. and the Chronicles of Nick manga are published by Yen Press. Chronicles and Nick and Dark-Hunter are soon to be a major motion picture and the Dark-Hunters are currently being developed as a television series.

OUR FAVORITE QUOTES

“Bride had been the most beautiful woman Vane had ever seen.
She still was.
Her long auburn hair was pulled up into a messy bun on top of her head that left curls of it to caress her porcelain face. She wore a long, black dress that flowed around her body as she jerked a vacuum cleaner across the carpet.
Every animal instinct in his body roared to life as he saw her again. The feeling was primal. Demanding.
Needful.
And it wouldn’t listen to reason.
Against his will, he found himself headed toward her. It wasn’t until he had opened the burgundy door that he realized she was crying.
Fierce anger tore through him. It was bad enough that his life sucked, the last thing he wanted was to see someone like her cry.”

*****

“Then why are you being so nice to me?”
He cocked his head as if puzzled by her question. “Do I need a reason?”
“Yes.”
Vane was completely baffled. Humans needed a reason to be nice to each other? No wonder his kind avoided them.
“I don’t know what to say,” he admitted. “I didn’t know there were rules for giving gifts or for trying to make someone feel better. You looked so sad as I walked by that I only wanted to make you smile.”

****

“Bride had never taken a step on the wild side. Fear and responsibility had ruled her life from the moment of her birth.
Yet here she sat, holding a complete stranger in her arms. A gorgeous stranger who had been kinder to her than anyone else.
And she wanted to taste him. To know just once what it was like to actually kiss a man who looked like this.”

******

“He growled at her. Bride shifted nervously at the sound that wasn’t quite human.
“Look, Bride,” he said, his voice deep and resonant. “I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t know what I’m doing tonight, okay? I’ve never had a date before and I was told that women liked to be taken out someplace nice to eat. Grace and Amanda said that I should be myself and not try to impress you. So here we are at my favorite restaurant, but if you don’t like it here, we can go someplace else and eat something you want.”

******

“Most of all, I like the fact that you share yourself with me. That I don’t have to prove my strength to you. I don’t have to hurt or be hurt to lie with you.”
There was a note in his voice that told her just how important that was to him.
What an odd thing to say to a woman.”

******

“Fury leaped up to put his paws against her breasts and lick her face.
“Yo, down,” Vane snapped, forcing the wolf back. “There’ll be none of that.”
“I don’t mind,” Bride said charitably.
Fury wagged his tail and smiled wickedly, then tried to look up Bride’s dress.
Vane caught him quickly by the neck. “Stop!” he snarled mentally to Fury. “Or I’ll rip your head off.”
Bride frowned at them. “Don’t you like my wolf?”
“Yeah,” Vane said, patting him roughly on the head. “He’s my new best friend.”
“I’m your only friend, dickhead.”
Vane balled his fist in the wolf’s fur as a warning to him. “You know you have to be firm with wolves. Let them know who the alpha is.”

******

“I’m human,” he said in a tormented tone. “And I’m not.” He dropped his hand to her shoulder. “I never knew softness,” he breathed. “Not until the moment you touched me in your store. My life is violent and dangerous. It’s dark and twisted and no place for someone like you. I have more people wanting me dead than I can count. They will stop at nothing, and you . . .” He ground his teeth before he spoke again. “You’ll never want again for anything in your life. I swear it on what little bit of human soul I have left.”

*****

“Since when am I family?”
“Since the minute we were born and since the second you came to me to warn me about Stefan.” Vane held his hand out to him. “I don’t need an oath to be bound to you, little brother. We’re family.”
Fury hesitated, then placed his hand in Vane’s. Vane pulled him forward and hugged him.
Bride’s throat tightened at the look of pain on Fury’s face. It was obvious he had never expected Vane’s reaction or his acceptance.
“I won’t betray you, Fury,” Vane said. “Ever. And if Fang ever comes out, he won’t either.”
Fury stepped back and nodded.”

****

“He knelt on the floor before her, took her hand in his and kissed her palm. Oh, he was so tender with her. So kind. She curled her fingers against his warm, whiskered cheek.
How could she leave a man like this?”
He’s not human.”

****

“A man decked out in black leather and chains with long red and black hair and a dagger earring in his left ear definitely didn’t look like someone who should relish caring for an infant. And yet there he sat in the frilly pink room peacefully cradling the baby. Ash ought to look completely out of place and yet he seemed at home here.”

*****

“Do you believe in eternal love, Vane?”
He nodded. “When you live for hundreds of years, you see all kinds of things.”
“How does someone know the difference between that and infatuation?”
He sat up between her legs, then pulled her into his lap to cuddle. “I don’t think there is a difference. I think infatuation is like a garden. If tended and cared for, it grows into love. If neglected or abused it dies. The only way to have eternal love is to never let your heart forget what it’s like to live without it.”

*****

“I guess if I have to choose between a human and an animal, I’m going with the animal. So be warned, Bryani. If you ever threaten Vane or his brothers again, I’m going to show you just how human I am. I will don my camouflage, hunt you down, and skin you while you scream. Do you understand me?”

*****

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s most highly-anticipated novel in the Dark-Hunter series since Acheron is here—the unforgettable story of Styxx, Acheron’s twin brother and one of the most powerful beings on earth

Just when you thought doomsday was over . . .

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge.

As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother’s side. They’ve spent more centuries going at each other’s throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he’s willing to trade his life and future for Acheron’s.

The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now.

She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her. But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer.

Yet it’s hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours, even when it’s your own twin, and when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul?

CORI’s REVIEW:

I just finished reading Styxx and I’m an emotional mess. I cried, I cried some more, and I was left with happy tears and a smile when I reached the last page. This story really touched my heart. If you read Acheron, then like me you probably hated Styxx. When Sherrilyn Kenyon announced she was writing Styxx’s story and explained that there were two sides to every story and we didn’t know Styxx, I had no idea what how right she was. Styxx’s story is heart wrenching. I’m still an emotional wreck and this is a story that stay with me. Sherrilyn Kenyon always creates a vivid and descriptive world and characters that touch the reader, but she out did herself with this book. It has become my favorite and that is saying something coming from a huge Kenyon and Dark-Hunter fan. I’m leaving a lot out of this review because I don’t want to give anything away about the characters because of how Styxx has been betrayed in previous books. I’ll just say I loved it and that this story will affect you.

DONNA’S REVIEW:

I just finished the book and loved how it illustrated how each person has a different view on the same event. Perception and preconceived ideas color us all. Sherrilyn Kenyon wove a story about love’s joys and trials, not just between lovers, but friends and family also. They all touched me in some way and their world will stay with me for some time. Even though Cori reviewed this book, I rated this book a 5 also and liked it more than Acheron.

Facebook quote issue today…

Mini Rant: Facebook Book Quote posted without the Author’s name included on a non-book related Facebook page and shared without people knowing the quote comes from a BOOK

One of my favorite quotes is being shared around FB today, but it’s just the quote without the author’s name included so all these people are sharing it thinking it’s just some great words someone thought of and posted on Facebook, but they have no clue those great words came from a book. It was originally posted on a non-book page/ blog and when I read the quote they had posted (words were in a blue box minus the author’s name or title of the book) I recognized it because it’s a favorite of mine. Then I commented that it comes from a book and told them which one. I think it was shared 64 times and all these people don’t know the words came from a book. Anyway I think it’s sad that it’s being passed around without people knowing it’s a Sherrilyn Kenyon quote and they could be reading a great book that these awesome words came from so I’m reposting a Quote I’ve posted before with the Author’s name included.

Quote: Sherrilyn Kenyon ~ Acheron

Quotes: Sherrilyn Kenyon

“It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of Shadows

“Don’t let those people steal your day”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“My father used to say that life is what you make it. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. You can’t change the past, but the future isn’t set in stone. You can effect a change there. Move forward not with hatred or love. Move forward with purpose. (Simone)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dream Chaser

“How could one sentence uttered in anger cause so much damage? But then words were the most powerful thing in the universe. Cuts and bruises always healed, but words spoken in anger were most often permanent. They didn’t damage the body, they destroyed the spirit. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“It actually dawned on me that I don’t fight. I just kill whatever annoys me, and it’s over. (Savitar)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dark Side of the Moon

“Sometimes things have to go wrong in order to go right.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon

“Nothing is ever truly set by fate. In one blink, everything changes. Even though it should be a clear, sunny day, the softest whisper into the wind can become a hurricane that destroys everything it touches. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Sins of the Night

“Baby, it’s either laugh or cry and crying takes way too much energy. If you can’t find humor in the shit life heaps on you, you really will grow miserable.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of Night

“Everyone suffers at least one bad betrayal in their lifetime. It’s what unites us. The trick is not to let it destroy your trust in others when that happens. Don’t let them take that from you.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Invincible

“And I flunked anger management the moment I put the counselor through a stone wall. You might want to keep that in mind. (Thorn)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Bad Moon Rising

“You know, it’s amazing to me the wounds we carry for eternity. But what has fascinated me most these last few years is how the right person can heal them. I remember a wise man once said to me that everyone deserves to be loved. Even you. (Zarek)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“People destroy beauty when they find it. (Acheron)
How so? (Artemis)
By nature, people are petty and jealous. They envy what they lack and because they don’t know how to acquire something, they try to destroy anyone who has it. Beauty is one of those things they hate most in others. (Acheron)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“Life is a tapestry woven by the decisions we make.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kiss of the Night

“I learned a long time ago not to judge people by what they look like, sound like, or by the clothes they wear. Just because a house is nice and shiny out front doesn’t mean it’s not rotting on the inside. (Kyrian)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infinity

“You’ll never see the moments coming that will for ever mutilate your life-at least not until after they’ve mowed you down. -Savitar”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“I think infatuation is like a garden. If tended and cared for, it grows into love. If neglected or abused it dies. The only way to have eternal love is to never let your heart forget what it’s like to live without it. (Vane)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Night Play

“People aren’t just ants rushing around over a crust of bread. Every life, no matter how isolated, touches hundreds of others. It’s up to us to decide if those micro connections are positive or negative. But whichever we decide, it does impact the ones we deal with. One word can give someone the strength they needed at that moment or it can shred them down to nothing. A single smile can turn a bad moment good. And one wrong outburst or word could be the tiny push that causes someone to slip over the edge into destruction.”
— Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infamous (Chronicles of Nick, #3)

“If you muster that courage to stand under fire and not go down, you will amass an inner strength that no one can touch. You won’t be another faceless, nameless, forgotten human in a long historical line of the defeated. You will be a steeled warrior, and a force to be forever reckoned with. And beneath the pain that lingers, you will have the comfort of knowing that you are strongest of all. That when others caved and broke, you kept fighting even against hopeless odds.” (Caleb)
— Sherrilyn Kenyon (Inferno (Chronicles of Nick, #4))

“The depth and strength of our character is defined by our moral code. People only reveal themselves when they’re thrown out of the usual conditions of their lives. That’s when the truth of who they are is revealed…”
— Sherrilyn Kenyon, Born of Shadows (The League, #4)

“Strength through adversity. The strongest steel is forged by the fires of hell. It is pounded and struck repeatedly before it’s plunged back into the molten fire. The fire gives it power and flexibility, and the blows give it strength. Those two things make the metal pliable and able to withstand every battle it’s called upon to fight. (Savitar)”
— Sherrilyn Kenyon, Devil May Cry (Dark-Hunter, #12)

“Acheron always says that our scars are there to remind us of out pasts, of where we’ve been and what we’ve gone through. But that pain doesn’t have to drive or determine our future. We can rise above it if we let ourselves. It’s not easy, but nothing in life ever is.” (Sundown)
— Sherrilyn Kenyon (Retribution (Dark-Hunter, #20; Were-Hunter, #7)

“Life is gamble, It’s harsh and painful most of the time, and it’s not for the timid. Spoils go to the victor, not to the one who doesn’t even show up for the battle.” (Acheron)
— Sherrilyn Kenyon, Night Play (Dark-Hunter, #6; Were-Hunter, #2)

“There are some pains that run too deep for anything to absolve them. The best we can do is pick up the pieces and hope for the strength we need to keep going. (Acheron)
Is that what you do? (Tory)
No, I beat shit up – that helps even more. (Acheron)”
— Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron (Dark-Hunter, #15)

“The worst wounds, the deadliest of them, aren’t the ones people see on the outside. They’re the ones that make us bleed internally.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infamous

“No one can ever make you feel inferior without your permission, Tory. Don’t give it to them. Realize that it’s their own insecurities that make them attack you and others. They’re so unhappy with themselves that the only way they can feel better is by making everyone as unhappy as they are. Don’t let those people steal your day, baby. You hold your head high and know that you have the one thing they can never take away from you. (Theo)
What’s that, Papa? (Tory)
My love. Your mother’s love and the love of your family and true friends. Your own self-respect and sense of purpose. Look at me, Torimou, people laugh at me all the time and say that I’m chasing rainbows. They told George Lucas that he was a fool for making Star Wars – they used to even call it Lucas’s Folly. Did he listen? No. And if he’d listened to them you wouldn’t have had your favorite movie made and think of how many people would never have heard the phrase ‘May the Force be With You.’ (Theo)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“I see time away hasn’t made you any more charming. (Fang)
Oh, I can be charming. I just choose not to. People start to think you like them, then when you stab them in the back, they take it so personally. Really pisses me off. (Thorn)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Bad Moon Rising

“I can tell we’re going to get along like Batman and the Joker. (Fang)
Just remember one thing, world. I’m the best friend you’ll ever have or the last enemy you’ll ever make. (Thorn)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Bad Moon Rising

“Watch your back, wolf. There’s a pall over this place and the bears are racking up enemies faster than Wal-Mart rakes in sales. When the time comes, it’s going to get bloody. (Thorn)
I wouldn’t have it any other way. (Fang)
Don’t be so arrogant. Long before I was the debonair sophisticate standing in front of you, I was a warlord. I put more blood on my blade than Madame la Guillotine. The one thing all that battle taught me is that no one walks away without scars. No one. (Thorn)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Bad Moon Rising

“Our lives are marked and shaped by our regrets. Things we all want to take back and can’t. In a perfect world, we would never hurt the ones we love or cause hurt to befall them. But the world isn’t perfect and neither are we.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Styxx

“People make their own reality. That was what Praxis had taught him years ago. A hundred people can witness the exact same event, and give two hundred and three different accountings of it.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Styxx
