The latest novel by Sherrilyn Kenyon in her Dream-Hunter series, Dream Chaser tells the tale of Xypher, a nightmare Skoti, and Simone Dubois, a medical examiner. Xypher has been enduring a centuries of torment and has come to earth to get revenge on the one who caused his imprisonment, Satara. As with most of the feminine leads in Kenyon’s books, Simone was in the wrong place at the wrong time and gets linked with Xypher through some godlike weapon manipulation.
I haven’t made up my mind on the Dream-Hunter series by Kenyon as of yet. This novel was good, but like the other two, it wasn’t spectacular. I don’t know what it is, but there’s really nothing from the novels that stands out in my head like her earlier work. I can still imagine Seize the Night in my head or even Fantasy Lover which was the first in the Dark-Hunter series. There was something about those novels that captured a person’s interest and held it even after they were done reading it. So far, I haven’t felt that with the Dream-Hunter series.
Overall, the novel was good and I would recommend it to someone who likes the Dark-Hunter series, but I don’t know if I would go out and buy the series. The plot kept moving and it did throw some in twists, plus the characters were kind of fun. There is one bonus feature with this book….there’s an excerpt in the back for Acheron, which is out in August.
