Zarek's Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

Zarek has had more than his fair share of hard knocks in his life, putting it mildly. Being born to a Roman slave, fathered by Roman royalty and royal brothers (his Brother Valerius) , Zarek never belonged, but he always knew his place...as a slave. Zarek went through things that no human being should have to endure and has a shell of armor around himself so thick that no one will ever be able to penetrate it. At least that's what he thinks. After nine hundred years living in the Alaskan wilderness, Zarek sets off to New Orleans only to return to Alaska knowing that he'll either die before he gets there, or die in the biting cold that he's gotten so used to. At least that's what he thinks... In all her years as a justice nymph, Astrid has never judged a man innocent. The closest she ever came was when she though she was in love with the man she was jugding, which she learned never to do again. When Acheron requests that she be the one to judge Zarek, she is stunned. First by what she sees in his eyes, and second by what she is almost positive the outcome will be. She doesn't count on Zarek though, nor the feelings he envokes in her. In Kenyon's usual manner, she can bring a reader from tears to laughter in a page of reading. Although there is humor, it doesn't take away from the emotional intensity of the book. What Zarek had to endure as a slave brought me to tears, but it showed how strong Zarek is to endure and keep living, even though I wouldn't call what he was doing living. Astrid and Zarek are perfect for each other and Kenyon has another hit in Dance With The Devil. Don't miss it!!

Loved this installment of the Dark Hunter series! It touched on so many elements of the universe (were-hunters, dream hunters, demons, Olympians, etc) and provided a ton of background information. Great characters, pacing, and twists; I LOVED how the matter of Zarek's soul was resolved. The Little Prince thread throughout was so cute. I'm infatuated with Zarek, and Astrid is a great match for him. Two strong, brave, and smart characters who love, need, and help each other equally - the best kind of match. This book is sexy, touching, exciting and surprising: probably my favorite so far in the series.

Summary:
Zarek put the "dark" in Dark-Hunter. Exiled in Alaska for centuries, despised by the goddess who made him, and feared by his own kind, he is ordered to be executed by Artemis because of an incident during his last mission. His one chance at reprieve comes from the head Dark-Hunter, Acheron, and the justice nymph, Astrid. It's a slim chance. Astrid has never judged a being "not guilty," and the only man who came close to earning an acquittal betrayed her and broke her heart. But in a snowbound cabin, the judge and the accused discover love always offers another chance.
