Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon comes the next thrilling installment in her blockbuster Dark-Hunter® series.
Harm no human…
A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.
Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief - Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meeting the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.
A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster….
Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.
Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.

Was left hanging ...

Don't get me wrong -- I loved the book, and really enjoy the Dark Hunter series. However, I felt a little let down when the end came, having expected more from the build up of the story. The story of Buffalo, Butterfly, Coyote and Wren was intriguing -- however, I felt in the end as if it was unresolved in the bigger story of the book, with only the disclaimer that more would be expected in time to come.

Also, the main theme of the Dark Hunter books was almost skipped over here, with various forays into the realm, and yet kind of like swiss cheese. I wish Ms. Kenyon had written a longer book, where everything was more part of the whole, and not so many scenes strung together.

Hopefully, she plans to pull this together in a further story down the road, but I have my doubts. And, I will say, the bonus at the end of the book was great!

Love Holter Graham......BUT........

What did you like best about Retribution? What did you like least?

Love Jess from Dance with the Devil, and glad to see him get a story, but I'm very confused...I downloaded this book the day it came out, and listened to it many times, as it was so very different from the other DH books, with the native American theme and all.....
Then, in anticipation of the upcoming "Time Untime" I listened to it again this week, and it was different ...I mean, the end was different.... Much more detail, and I am VERY confused....


What didn’t you like about Holter Graham’s performance?

He really has no range.... All his characters sound "American" despite the discriptions of their ethnic backgrounds....While, in comparison to Maggie meg reed, carrington macduffie, and (shudder) William Dupree, he's the lessor of all evils, he can't seem to remember that he's done these books before, and doesn't carry through with his characters.... The main discrepancy being Nick, but there are many more....Sin, Zarek, Dev, etc.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably, out of morbid curiosity
