Sunday Review: Son Of No One by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Source: Purchase off Amazon
Purchase Links: AMAZON B & N


In Son of No One, next in the blockbuster The Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, it’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted-out hoopty running. But when something truly evil is released into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcements.

From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn’t quite right.  Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his age.

Centuries ago, Cadegan was viciously betrayed into an immortal prison by the only person he’d ever trusted and was cast into an immortal prison. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him. Something he can’t seem to fight and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him everything.

He knows he has to stay away from her, but the unleashed demon is hell-bent on consuming her soul. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?


Holy Hell Batman!!

Okay where to start? I am still reeling from the 'Bonus Scene" at the end of the book. As always, or damn near close to always, SK keeps me so enthralled in the story that the only time I put my Kindle down was because I had to charge it. This novel took me 4 hours total to read, and yeah, I really flew through it. Much like her usual standard her writing was fantastic. Such an easy style to follow and enjoy.

Now onto the nitty gritty of the book.

I liked Josette and Cadegan. Their 'love' started quite quick but that was alright. It didn't bother me one bit because I loved those two together. I also loved Thorn and his roll in the book too.

Simi and Fang - God how you love those two! I laughed out loud at two different parts and it was because of these two characters. They are always the comedic break in the serious scene aren't they?

It was a little weird seeing Styxx here. I am still unsure how I feel about that book, much like Acheron's it will stick with me for a little while and in a few years I'll come up with a final verdict on that one. But overall I liked Styxx and Ash's interactions together in this novel.

What I didn't like ... that it ended ....

Okay so there is no way I can go a moment longer so *semi spoiler* attempt ... READ THE BONUS SCENE LIKE NOW!!!!!!!! Yeah if your jaw doesn't drop then you must be a statue!

5 Stars easily because yeah, SK is my author goddess and I love her work!
