Dream Warrior



Sherrilyn Kenyon's latest release in the Dream Hunter world, Dream Warrior, was released on February 3, 2009. It tells the story of Cratus, AKA Jericho, who defied Zeus and earned thousands of years of torture and abuse for doing so. The son of Warcraft and Hate, he had been Zeus' right hand man until he looked into the eyes of a small baby girl and couldn't kill her. Flash forward through a few millenia of daily beatings, killings, and resurrections, Zeus is looking for Jericho to save their collective butts from an old enemy. Jericho being understandably reluctant to partake in the butt saving, Zeus resorts to dirty tricks, and sends Delphine to seduce him. Delphine is a Dream Hunter whose primary responsibility for almost her entire existence has been to protect humans from the Skoti who prey on them in their dreams. Despite her lack of experience with seduction, she manages to capture Jericho's attention, and  completes her task, even if not as Zeus had originally intended.

This book is crammed full of action as is Ms. Kenyon's usual, but there are a few surprises for Dark Hunter fans, with some fun cameos and new character introductions made. I loved this novel, I think she is building up to some great stuff and it is gonna be an awesome ride! 
Again, here are some links for purchase-

Odd I commented but it disappeared. So, I'll try once more.

Love the reviews of stories that I really enjoy reading. Your review of the new Dark Hunter/ Dream warrior novel has me chomping at the bit. : ) I love Sherrilyn Kenyon. I've read a lot of romantic paranormal fiction lately and hers is some of the best.

I love the idea of winning a book signed by her. I hadn't heard of this series. I haven't found of book of hers so far that I didn't greatly enjoy, however.

Thanks for doing this! -Clare

Hey Cici - Great review. Love the book myself and have read it twice. Well really 2 2/3. I did a skimming here and there between the 1st and 2nd read.

Keep up the great reviews.

P.S. Please don't enter me in the contest as I already own an autographed copy.

Dream Warrior was sooooo good! I would love that autographed book of Sherri's and Dianne's! I haven't been able to get a copy as of yet *pout*

I agree that ths book is one of the best so far - barring Acheron - and she leaves it - per usual with the reader asking themselves lots of questions and waiting in anticipation for the next part of the story.
