Ok.. so this is a real DH novel.
This is the story of Kirian and Amanda.
This is really the first chapter in the Dark Hunter world. We meet several characters that will stay with us for a fairly long time, and the story Arc starts to develop. (Ash, Nick, Tabitha, Valerius, Talon, Artemise, Simi etc)
FYI. Dark Hunters are not vampires. Daemons are not vampires. This is not really a vampire-genre novel it is a variation of it, a very complex world building because includes Mythology from several cultures.
You will see that Sherri has a thing for tortured heroes, and the conflicts are hundreds if not thousands of years old, so it is very interesting to read a mix of modern/old stories.
I love the series, specially the first books that revolve around New Orleans.
