Devil May Cry

Devil May Cry by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Okay she redeemed herself here.  Here last book in the Dark Hunter Series, The Other Side of the Moon I didn't like so much.  I didn't care for the characters so when I heard about this book I was skeptic.  I loved her Dream Hunter book, I felt for the characters and wanted them to win.  In Dark Side of the Moon I was like okay yeah that was a bit disappointed.  I thought perhaps she had lost her touch

In Devil May Cry the man heroine is Kat, I for a long time wanted Kat to be Ash's heroine but I found out now that would be icky.  She can't be because she is Ash's daughter, HOLY CRAP do you know what that means!  HOLY CRAP!    I was not expecting that, was not expecting that.  This is why Sherrilyn Kenyon is back on awesome status.

Kat's hero is Sin a Sumerian god of Fertility, he he, keep that in mind.  Together they must get past what each did to each other in the past, who her mother is, and help defeat the bad guys and stop the end of the world coming, sigh you'd think she'd be sick and tired of that conflict.

Anyway after deciding who the real bad guy is and it's not Artemis, they begin to trust each other and with a help of a few other characters they begin their epic, okay not epic battle to not really defeat the bad guy but do manage to save the end of the world.

I actually cared for the characters, you learn a lot about Ash and Artemis and their relationship and now Ash has a daughter and I hope she keeps us informed on that front in later books because I do believe Kat is about to make the pair grandparents.

Yeah lots of spoilers, hence the cut.

My only problem with the book is and she may clear this up, is she does not end the conflict with the bad guys.  Yeah they save Las Vegas, but I wanted them to get the bad guy like she has done in other books.  Instead she brings back another bad guy and now these two bad guys hook up and thus the story continues and she does end the book on a high note but still.  I would have liked to see bad guys dead and the hero and heroine live happily ever after. 

My only reason she did this is to keep the climax going from book to book but she didn't end the conflict in Dark Side of the Moon either which was a depressing book in its own way.  So I'm wondering if she has a reason behind this and I hope she does because I really want happy endings and end of conflicts.

Overall I'm gonna rate this one a solid 8 out of 10 only because I'd like to see endings and hope they come soon.
