Living a dual life can be deadly, as Kere, an infamous member of the Sentella, is about to find out. As Kere he is feared across the galaxy, as Darling he is mocked, ridiculed and beaten on a regular basis. No one outside the Sentella knows his true identity not even the resistance leader Zarya Starska – the woman Kere has given his heart to.
In the wrong place at the wrong time Kere finds all he thought he believed in to be a lie and vows to kill every resistance member he can find… including Zarya.
Darling’s story was eagerly awaited and it did not disappoint, we went from emotional highs to lows and experienced every emotion possible. I was sobbing in parts, thankful I was reading it alone and my kids or husband weren’t in the room! In previous books Darling has been openly homosexual and I was worried that the explanation for him being in love with a woman would be weak. I should never have doubted Sherrilyn Kenyon however, the reasoning was flawless and very believable.
For those of you who have read the Dark Hunter books, Darling is very much like Acheron (apart from being a god of course – sex god maybe), a tortured hero with so much baggage it is surprising he comes out even halfway sane. In the same way that Acheron is by far my favourite book from the Dark Hunters, this book has easily become my favourite in this series.
There is a lot of input from characters from the previous books which I always enjoy and their responses when finding Darling with a woman are a picture (well as much of a picture you can get with a book).
In summary if you enjoyed the previous books in this series you will love this one, it is bigger, better and much more of an emotional rollercoaster ride.
