Warning: Spoilers alert!!!

Rating: 3 out of 5 cherries.

My review:
This book was actually an enjoyable read. Once I got over the nonsense plot that kick-started the story. And hanging on with a death grip on to the romantic thought that this is Strykerious, the-bad-guy-gone-hero, we’re talking about here. Then, yes it was an enjoyable read.

For goodness sake! Nobody can get into Kalosis without express invitation. That is why Stryker has to hold Zephyra’s hand to take her to Kalosis.

Then, in the openning gambit, Medea and Zephyra flashed into Kalosis and suprised attacked Stryker!?! So how were they suppose to have done that? I think that needs to be explained properly to the readers. A reasonable explanation is needed so that the readers do not get irritated with plots that don’t make sense!!

Genre: urban fantasy

Book Info: Info about this book was taken from the author’s website:

While the world carries on unawares, Stryker, who leads an army of demons and vampires, is plotting an all out onslaught against his enemies–which, unfortunately for us, includes the entire human race. To avenge his sister, Stryker prepares to annihilate the Dark-Hunters. But things go awry when his oldest enemy returns. Enter his ex-wife. Zephyra. Just when he thought nothing could stop him, he’s now embroiled in a centuries old war with a shrew who gives new meaning to pain and a shrew who is the only woman he’s ever really loved.

This is a keystone book where new alliances form and old ones realign. The world of the Dark-Hunters is shifting and you definitely don’t want to miss it. There are major shockers in it about Nick and Acheron and you will also meet Simi’s future hero.

Longer than a novella, but not quite as long as a novel, OSN is a special thank you to fans. It’s events will also lead directly into the next few books.

  1. As far as your confusion. If you go further then the book jacket or what’s on a web site and read the book. There is no confusion on how Zephyra got there. Stryker had opened bolt holes (think worm hole) into Kalosis and was summoning his people to mobilize for a little ass kicking. It Even sets it up with a Daimon who came through before Zephyra being to week and soft, the weakling became dinner for Kessar a Gallu demon who was a servant of Strykers.

    • Stryker might have openned bolt holes but that does not mean that anyone can go through it. The same reason why Dark Hunters can’t go through them when the Daimon they are chasing goes through it. If anybody can go through the bolt holes that Stryker openned, Kalosis would be swarmming with Dark Hunters. This rule of magic in the Dark Hunter world has been laid out in previous Dark Hunter books. One can only enter Kalosis with express invitation (except for Thorn, apparently). Preston, maybe you ought to read the previous books in this series before reading this book like I did. By the way, Kessar, the Sumerian Gallu demon has nothing to do with the ability to enter Kalosis.
