批評家のレビュー

"Kenyon's Dark-Hunter books are changing the face of the vampire novel, making it hip, darker, and all the more appealing." ( Publishers Weekly)

あらすじ・解説

The second installment in Sherrilyn Kenyon's best-selling Dark-Hunter series, Night Embrace.

As an ancient Celtic warrior, Talon made one giant mistake - he killed the son of the war god Camulus. In anger and outrage, Camulus cursed him - everyone Talon loved would die a horrible death in front of his eyes. But when Talon's clan slaughters his young sister while he watches, powerless to stop them, he sells his soul for vengeance against them. 

Two thousand years later in modern-day New Orleans, as part of the bargain he made, he's now an immortal protector who keeps mankind safe from the creatures who would prey on them. A life he's happy with until he meets Sunshine - an offbeat artist who reminds him what it's like to really live. Unfortunately for both of them, it's Mardi Gras, and New Orleans is teeming with a complex plot of ancient gods, including Camulus, who are now out to reconquer the world. 

The gloves are off, and it's time for a rematch with Talon out to save everyone, including the artist who makes him insane.

(very) Pleasantly Surprised

Although I'm an urban fantasy aficionado, I guess I had been avoiding this type of PNR erotic fiction. Since a friend told me my book recommendations weren't sexy enough I thought I would dip my toe into the genre starting with Sherrilyn Kenyon since I've seen her books for years and always wondered about them. Night Embrace turned out to be a great choice. I got my UF fix, an interesting story, great setting, really likeable characters, AND hot smut that was NOT cheesy; not only that, but actually really well done. Who'd of thought?! I think that's why I've always avoided hot and steamy books, especially in audio: most are done soooo badly I just can't take it .... I know you all know what I mean... But SK really knows what she is doing, so much so that I may be a convert. In fact I've already moved on to additional books in the series, but so far NE remains my favorite. Having said that, I was not a fan of the narrator. I actually skipped the first book because her southern accent was far too grating, even from the short sample snippet (say that 3x fast). She is somewhat tolerable in this one, however, and I don't feel I missed too much.

In short, if you're looking for a hot yet sensitive alpha male, a quirky, perky, plus-sized heroine, great chemistry, and lots of steamy sexytimes, all within a unique paranormal universe and a gothic New Orleans mystique, this is a good place to begin.

Horrible narration of the main character

I managed to finish the first book and I don't know if I will be able to finish the second book because of the narrotor. I just can't stand the voice of Sunshine. It killed the whole story. If this narrator continued with the series, I would not considering to give a try to the next book.

Great listen!!

I loved this book. I loved the story and Carrington MacDuffie is a wonderful narrator. It's the second book in a series but can be considered a stand alone book. There is a reference to the previous story but it's explained enough that it's not confusing. It was fun to listen to because I love the Irish brogue.

Hot chemistry.

These books are good. I like the chemistry between Talon and Sunshine. Sometimes I think the author is a little junior highschool. I mean, come on, we are adult readers.." he has the hottest backside".. what is that. I believe most women, like me, feel perfectly comfortable using an alternative word for that. Could be a little more hardcore is all.Like the character developement and the story. Really want to see what happens with Ash! Otherwise this is O.K. I guess I'm just use to Trueblood:)

I've read the book twice...

And still, at times, this brought tears to my eyes. Even though it was 'read' by a woman, she does Talon and Sunshine's voice's so different, that it's like more than one person reading. Fantastic. This makes me remember WHY I love this series.

Her last few stories weren't all that great, but this makes me remember and makes me excited for Ash's story coming out Aug 5th :)

Ordering the next one now. :)

Awesome

I love this series. At first, I wasn't sure but each book gets better and better. I LOVE the narrator! She does a great job with the characters. Once you get to know the style of the writing and the "world" of the dark hunters, it will make you want to hurry to the next. I only wish Audible had the rest of the series. I'm trying to find them in downloadable form as I love listening to a book while I drive, do laundry or anything else. For now, I'm getting others from the library and reading them. I can't put them down.

Night Embrace

I think is book was great. I enjoyed all the different characters and voices. The story line was funny and was just enough off the wall to keep you interested. If you are a die hard Kenyon Fan, then you must listen to this one; you will indeed be entertained.

lazy writing

if I hadn't read the first in the series I would have given a slightly higher mark but I have. it's not that this one is so much worse than the first, they are the same level. It is that the author decided to take an easy route. She started with a premise that I liked and thought would be good, then added on something to make it easier and then again modified that aspect of it to make it even easier. let me explain, there are no spoilers if you have read the first book. She starts off saying that each DH has an out clause. It is unique to them and they don't know what it is.
this later becomes, the out clause is the same for all DH, I.e. true love. then there is the out clause that is actually that Ash has to bargain with Arthemis for the soul for which she asks his favours in return. this is less of an put clause than Ash having decided himself that he would do this. Ash then says that they must never find out but then in this book it is common knowledge that not only the out clause is love but also that Ash is the one that petitions for the soul and Arthemis can in theory refuse. It is such a lazy thing to do. a way to be able to write a ton of books on the same format with no thaught. DH meets girl. They start to have feeling. side story that comes interfering with their romance. DH "no I am a DH I can never have love I must leave you." or" I dont deserve love" or something along those lines but of course love conquers all. Ash gets soul and HEA.

why didn't she stay with her fist idea? each DH needing their own out clause and it being a real out clause. One linked to the reason they became DH in the first place. In this book it could have been break the curse with Camulus and get him to forgive him. putting aside all his pain and guilt and finally forgiving himself. Sunshine would have been the person who would have helped him get their. And the out is a real out not just Ash asking and hoping Arthemis will agree against sexy time. So that is why 2 stars.

Steamy, Dreamy, and Dark!

Would you listen to Night Embrace again? Why?

Yes. This story is that has so many subplots you could listen to it over and over again and learn something new each time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

When Talon spent the day with Sunshine in nothing but his birthday suit.

What does Carrington MacDuffie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings great depth to the characters with her range of accents and dialects.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. There is no way that I could unless I decided not to sleep.
