Editorial Reviews. Review. PRAISE FOR SHERRILYN KENYON. “Kenyon is the reigning queen of the vampire novel.”–Barbara Vey, Publishers Weekly. Dream Chaser (Dream-Hunter Novels) This one finally takes us back to New Orleans where it all started (and where I feel at home with this.

Condemned by the gods to live out his existence without emotions, Xypher chose the pursuit of sensations, to feel again in the dreams of humans, only to find himself condemned to death. But he is given one last chance at a reprieve.
Made human for a month, he must redeem himself within that time or Shdrrilyn will return him to Tartarus and his torture. Simone Dubois is a coroner who isn’t scared by much, especially since she’s psychic and can see and hear the people she’s working on.
Dream Chaser by Sherrilyn Kenyon
When they wheel in another victim, she doesn’t think much about it, until he gets drean from her table and starts to leave. Xypher doesn’t have time to spend with this human woman and her questions.
But it’s not long before mysterious attempts on Simone’s life force Xypher to stand between the woman who is beginning to touch the heart he thought had died a long time ago and the danger that is threatening her life.
Strangely, the events of Dream Chaser are a continuation of a story line that was started in Devil May Cry, the eleventh book in the Dark-Hunter series. To me, it seems that the author has assumed that readers will have read and will want to read books in both series.
If that is the case, why market them as two separate series?
Reviews by Author
Aside from the propagation of plot lines and characters from the Dark-Hunter series ending up in the Dream-Hunter novels, the Dream-Hunter books have other problems.
Dream Chaser seemed particularly difficult to get into.
The characters were not so much characters as caricatures. Evil characters were unrelentingly evil and good characters were unrelentingly good.
Even Jaden, a being made of primal power and the only vaguely morally ambiguous character in the xhaser story, gives the impression that he is probably only hiding his noble goodness under his misunderstood exterior. They were handcuffed together by chance but because he was attractive and she was nice they fell in love.
The writing feels rushed and as a sberrilyn the story has holes in it large enough to drive a bus through. Lending more weight to my theory dresm this story was rushed, this book and other recent offerings are getting shorter in their word count too. My copy of Dream Chaser stretched to pages but stretch is the operative word in this sentence since the print is large and has plenty of line space to spread it out.
I was won over by some of the earliest books in the Dark-Hunter series. Read Sherrilyn Kenyon’s exclusive LoveVampire’s author interview.
