Recap

Night Pleasures marks the first official book in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s exceptionally popular Dark-Hunters series. Though some characters such as Julian of Macedonia and Grace Alexander appear in the earlier Fantasy Lover, it wasn’t until Night Pleasures that we were launched into the world of the Dark-Hunters, those protectors of the night who gave up their souls to the goddess Artemis for a chance at revenge and who now spend their immortal lives fighting the forces of evil to protect mankind.

The first of these incredibly strong and sexy Dark-Hunters we meet is Kyrian of Thrace, who has been walking the earth for 2,182 years when Night Pleasures takes place. Before his death, brought about by his wife Theone’s betrayal of him to the Romans, he was a successful and feared soldier. He and his army were on the verge of taking Rome when he left the field to race home to his beloved wife, thinking her life in danger. Little did he know this one action would lead to his own death followed by centuries fighting armies of Daimons and Apollites, who endanger the very souls of humanity.

Kyrian’s world is turned upside down when he’s kidnapped by the Daimon Desiderius and wakes up handcuffed to Amanda Hunter, who believes she was mistaken for her twin sister Tabitha when she was taken from Tabitha’s house. Amanda for years has tried her best to be an average accountant, to stay far away from all the supernatural craziness that runs rampant in her family. So of course, what happens? She’s kidnapped by a Daimon and handcuffed to a Daimon-hunting vampire. As she’s pulled farther into a world even she, with her supernatural-leaning family, couldn’t imagine, the biggest surprise of all is that she finds herself falling for Kyrian. The more she falls in love, the more she wants to show him that he can trust her with his heart despite the fact that Theone shattered his ability to trust in that way.

And Amanda isn’t the only one falling. Kyrian loves Amanda but knows that them being together is hopeless since Dark-Hunters are forbidden to have romantic relationships. But when there is a love this strong, there’s always a way. On the way to defeating Desiderius, Kyrian has to learn to trust again. Amanda has to be stronger than she’s ever been. And the two of them get a little outside help when perhaps the series’ most beloved character, Acheron Parthenopaeus, finally arrives on the page.

As Kyrian and Amanda find a way to be together and Night Pleasures comes to an end, we’re left eagerly awaiting the next installment from the world of the Dark-Hunters. And that feeling of finishing a Dark-Hunter novel only to start eagerly awaiting the next book continues to this day.

Talon: “Are you the asshole who sent the ‘I See Dead People’ T-shirt to me?”

Kyrian: “That would be Wulf.”

Amanda: “So you’re the infamous Acheron.”

Acheron: “Lord and Master of the great barbarian horde that roams the night.”

  1. this was a very well written book that got me obsessed with all the Dark Hunters. This is the book where i couldn’t stop reading because the story gets you involved with wanting to know if and when you will meet the next Dark Hunter. i love how Sherri introduces the other characters for the next book. I really couldn’t wait for a book about Ash, he intrigued me from the beginning.

  2. 1. The story grabs you and it does not let go!
    2. Immediately drawn! Anyone that can keep the dark hunters in line deserves respect.
    3. I would go back to the spartan times! Now there were some warriors! Don’t know about a time that would be good to experience in another book that hasn’t been already.
    4. Perfect eyesight and never getting sick! Lol.
    5. I’m still finding my path.
    6. I was not surprised, just thrilled. It gives a better understanding and sense of wonder at a great man/boy. I don’t know about enhanced but I love them all.
    7. Not a twin but still mistaken for different people….. frustrating.
    8. I guess I would pick a jeep Cherokee. I would like to go off roading. The color black of course!

  3. Thank you for doing this re-read section. It reminds me of the books I haven’t read for quite some time 🙂

  4. THis was the first DH book i ever read it started my addiction and it will forever be in my top 5 at least

  5. What is it about Night Pleasures that spoke to readers and propelled the series to the success it’s had with fans?
    You are pulled in to the series from the beginning of the book……

    Though we see little of Acheron in this book, were you immediately drawn to him? Or did it take a few more books?
    I was drawn to him right away…..

    Kyrian lived in Roman times, and as the series continues we see glimpses of the pasts of other Dark-Hunters. If you could go back to any time in history as an observer for one day, when and where would it be?
    It would be back when Egypt was old school love that time period but i love all the glimpse we get from all areas threw these books.

    What time period/place hasn’t yet been used as a Dark-Hunter’s background that you’d like to see?
    i cant think of any she dose a good job with where we go that i cant think of an area at this time

    Dark-Hunters have a vast array of supernatural abilities. Which one would you choose to have if you could?
    I feel that for me I just want to be able to kick ass like the guys do i will take what ever powers that come…..

    Amanda eventually realizes that her life as an accountant is boring and she decides to embrace the person she really is instead of trying to suppress it. Have you ever experienced a life-altering moment such as that where you decided to go down a different path to who you truly are?
    yes, i gave up everything i had including all my books from this series and others i had over 400 books and i lost/left them behind to live on a working chicken farm where i only have internet and no cable. it took me a year to get the internet….

    We also meet Nick Gautier for the first time in Night Pleasures. He’s become a fan favorite, in large part because of his snarkiness. Did it surprise you when Sherrilyn launched an entire young adult series, The Chronicles of Nick, about Nick during his teen years?
    yes i was surprised…..

    Have you found that reading those books has enhanced your enjoyment of the Dark-Hunter series?
    i havent read them yet but will eventually

    If you are a twin, have you ever been mistaken for your sister/brother? Any funny stories? nope not a twin

    Dark-Hunters also tend to love their cars. If you could have any type of car in the world, what would it be? What color?
    Lambugini Diablo in purple

  6. Came across this book while browsing in our local library. Hooked from the first few pages and have bought all the rest to reread . Thank you for a wonderful series Sherrilyn.

  7. 1. I don’t know about others but I loved it from the first reading to the 5th.
    2. It took a few more books and still taking a few reads. He’s not 1 of my fav char’s.
    3. I would love to see more about ancient Egyptian times and that’s where I would head, in the time of King Tut or earlier
    4. Invisibility or Be forgotten
    5. Still working on that myself
    6. It surprised me a little since he didn’t seem to be that important in my eyes. But I also haven’t had the time to read his series as of yet. To many books to little time to read em all
    7. Not a twin
    8. Blood red or Midnight blue Pantera

  8. I just finished re-reading Night Pleasures February 7th and I didn’t even know about this re-read then lol! I am pretty sure I was immediately drawn to Acheron when I originally read this book but that was several years ago. I have not read the CON books yet although I have them on my Nook account. I bought them for my now 12 year old grandson starting when he was 9 or 10 (memory issue again, lol). He has re-read them several times. I really need to get started on them but will probably wait until the next one is released and “serial read” them.

  9. I was looking for a new author to read, and friend suggested another of Sherrilyn’s series and since they were so well written, I decided to give this series a try as well. Best decision I have made in years.

  10. What is it about Night Pleasures that spoke to readers and propelled the series to the success it’s had with fans?
    A: I can’t speak for everyone, but I think it spoke to readers and made it so popular, would have to be the sarcastic hilarious characters, You could belive that you could meet these people on the street in every day life, with just enough history and mythology to make it believable to a point. It is also a quick, action packed read so it keeps the readers busy, draws you in and makes you want to read more of the books.

    Though we see little of Acheron in this book, were you immediately drawn to him? Or did it take a few more books?
    A: I admit, I was a bit curious about him. But it wasn’t until the second and third books that i really grew to love his character. I was more immediately drawn to Simi.

    Kyrian lived in Roman times, and as the series continues we see glimpses of the pasts of other Dark-Hunters. If you could go back to any time in history as an observer for one day, when and where would it be? What time period/place hasn’t yet been used as a Dark-Hunter’s background that you’d like to see?
    A. If i could go back to any time in history and observe for one day, I would observe would probably of been one day in cleopatra the firsts life. As for what time period and place i would like to see. I’d love to see a Russian dark-hunter. or a Feudel era of japan dark hunter. But seeing something from the revolutionary war, something more recent in history would be amazing as well.

    Dark-Hunters have a vast array of supernatural abilities. Which one would you choose to have if you could?
    A: I would love the power over elements or weather, those would be highly useful i think.

    Amanda eventually realizes that her life as an accountant is boring and she decides to embrace the person she really is instead of trying to suppress it. Have you ever experienced a life-altering moment such as that where you decided to go down a different path to who you truly are?
    A: Yes, I was going to go into school to go into nursing like my mom and everyone else I know, and i spent my whole life in and out of hospitals as a patient, or volunteering at nursing homes my mom worked at, and so many people do it, and that would be an easy and more job secured path. But instead i decided to do what I really wanted to do, which is get a degree in LIbrary sceince and minor in German, and russian languages.

    We also meet Nick Gautier for the first time in Night Pleasures. He’s become a fan favorite, in large part because of his snarkiness. Did it surprise you when Sherrilyn launched an entire young adult series, The Chronicles of Nick, about Nick during his teen years? Have you found that reading those books has enhanced your enjoyment of the Dark-Hunter series?
    A: I wasn’t really surprised when she started doing CON, there was so much to nick that I wasn’t surprised that it would take a series, Also it gets a more broader range of readers. And it does make me enjoy the dark series a little more. But Really I could enjoy them seperately.

    If you are a twin, have you ever been mistaken for your sister/brother? Any funny stories?
    A: No, but my father is a twin. even though him and my uncle Kyle are fraturnal. They look and sound enough to like where they have been mistaken before.Never by me or family members but by random people we meet.

    Dark-Hunters also tend to love their cars. If you could have any type of car in the world, what would it be? What color?
    A: Black Jaquar. I don’t know why. I know very little of cars. But i love the jaquire sound and the animal on the hood.

  11. I loved the work from the start and found that once I started reading I found it harder and harder to put the books down, I also like that each book has life lessons and the good guys are not always squeaky clean,

  12. Honestly, I was very surprised when the Chronicles of Nick were released but I must say I love them. I really like that they can be read alone as well as along side the DH books. Its like little peeps of what is to come.

  13. The thing that drew me to read these (and reread it about 3 times so far) is how strong the female leads are. No pushovers, these women. Ash is so awesome. I even nicknamed one of my friends Ash because he reminded me of him. I will say that, Throughout the series, Ash’s interactions with Artemis really make me hate that selfish little b****. Kyrian of Thrace was my very first Kenyon crush because it was the first book I read. Thereafter, I laugh and I cry with them as though they are my own family. Strangely, Tabitha and Valerius are my favorite Kenyon couple.

  14. God this series has me in its grasp. I don’t know what id do without it now. I have fallen in love with the characters over and over again. Thank You Sherrilyn Kenyon you have a fan for life in me. I work in the library so every time someone ask me for something good to read I always point in the direction of the Dark-Hunter series, Nick chronicles, or the League because they’re beyond awesome and the whole world should know.

  15. What drew me to the series is the supernatural,warrior hero’s. I fall in kinship with most the characters, but Kyrain has always been a favorite. His sarcasum and Amanda’s also really hit’s home and is one of my favorite traits.
    I like Kyrains relationship with Nick.Drawn to Archeron no but I do think he makes the series and is a really vital part, they would be seriously lacking with out him!
    If I could go back it would be to Celtic times. I find the men and women to be enthralling.
    If I choose my ability it would be to freeze time. You could really do damage!
    No can’t say I have ever had the displeasure of life changing or altering time. Meeting my husband would come closest and I would not change that for the world!
    Yes I was very happy to see the Nick chronicles! Nick is a underestimated character and the chronicles showed us just to what degree Nick is playing with time!!!!!!
    Sorry not a twin, I am an only child.
    I am not a car person, I love trucks, 2013 Chevrolet, 2500 HD 6 in. lift and 35 in. tires in red, but my favorite car is the 2011 Camaro in yellow w/ black stripes.Also love a pearl Harley Soft tail Decked out!
    Can’t wait to read Born of Defiance or Instinct also missing my girl Evalle.

  16. I fell in love with the series with the first book “Fantasy Lover”. Although it didn’t have many of the characters we have all fallen in love with, it provided a great intro to a whole new world. Who wouldn’t want to be with a demi-god who would be your slave??? LOL

    I had no idea at the time that there were more books until I went back to look for the author and found “Night Pleasures”. That book, I think, helped move the series along into even more mystery and intrique – loved the humor that was in the books so much, I was laughing most of the time, while rooting for Amanda and Kyrian to work things out and have their ‘happy ever after’. Although, in Kenyon’s world, even ‘happy ever-after’s’ have a price – which is why I think it appeals to so many. The characters are flawed and human. We can relate to them.

    Add in the mythology and you have a diverse world that is full of surprises

  17. While it wasn’t this book that got me turned to Dark-Hunters it was the Dark-Hunter series that got me start. And I can’t imagine my reading life without them in it.

  18. I’m obsessed with anything Sherrilyn. I’ll read anything and everything she writes. Just wish I had ALL of her work!

  19. 1. I think just the whole idea of a cool, sexy, sarcastic group of people. They talk and act sometimes like we wish we could.
    2. I had read a few books before this one, so, I was already drawn to him, but I can see how as a first time reader someone may be unsure of him and find him kind of creepy.
    3. I’d like to go back to the Wild West time period, I think it would be very interesting.
    4. I would like to have abilities like Talon.
    6. I love Nick! I wasn’t really surprised, I think its a great idea. I think it is really going to shake some things up.
    8. A dark green Jeep Wrangler.

    These questions were great! Thanks!

  20. This was the first book that got me hooked onto the series and propelled me to read her others. I can thank this book for getting me into many new worlds! Also, it got me into adult fiction which isn’t as bad as I thought! Love this book and the characters.

    1. I think it was the new take on the gods, especially the greek gods, the new idea of vampires and demons. And the fact that it’s action packed with enough romance to entice the reader.
    2. I was because I had read Chronicles of Nick before so I already knew how big of a mystery he was. But just in the books, I focused more on Kyrian and Amanda.
    3. I would go to the first day that civilization was created, so I could see how it was back then and what really happened. Not sure. Probably someone from the medieval times. I always found it a somewhat dull time period, so maybe Ms. Kenyon could make it much more interesting.
    4. Invisibility. if you want to leave anywhere or not be the center of attention you can. You can make people feel crazy because you can start moving things while invisible, and make them think they’re seeing things. You would be able to have sneak attacks. And it would be much easier to surprise people, pranks or just to give them a gift.
    5. Yes. I’m naturally quiet but I am trying to become more talkative and confident. Also, I’m lazy, but now I’m in so many things that I can barely think and I love it!
    6. I read the CoN first and didn’t even realize that there was a adult series. I loved all the characters from then and I’m hoping to see all of them in the dark-hunter series. It’s good to get to see inside his past and it brings you so much closer to him and makes you sadder if he does turn evil. It leaves a bit more confused because the books haven’t completely intersected yet but it also provides us with background info on events from DH. And there are a lot of AH! moments, like with Kody’s brothers or Madoc (maybe?).
    7. I don’t have a twin but me and my siblings names are almost the same. Whenever my parents are talking or yelling at us to come somewhere, they always get our names mixed. Sometimes they even get our genders wrong. 😀 The good thing is because our names are so similar they can make a mistake and correct themselves in between so it sounds like they said it on purpose. I wonder if all parents do that? 😀
    8. I would have an Audi, Infiniti, or a Jaguar. Black or bright red.

  21. This has to be one of my favorite Dark hunter books, and the one that really hooked me into the world. I love Kyrian’s story. And yes, I was immediately drawn to Acheron. I wasn’t sure what to think of him at first, he seemed kind of mean to Amanda, but as the story went on, and as the series went on, he became the one I wanted to know the most about. It was so hard to wait for “His” book.

  22. Because of this series, if I could go back in time, I’d really want to visit Kyrian’s time.

  23. Though not the first I have read by Sherrilyn, it does remind me why I stay and am a fan. Her books get better every book.

  24. 1. I didn’t think I would like this book at first. I thought it would be another vampire cliche book. I was sooo wrong. I got deeper into the characters I wanted to know them.
    2. I noticed Ash. Wanted to know more about him. why the mystery and the sex appeal. What’s In his backpack. How did he become involved.
    3. this might sound a but weird but were there any dark hunters around the Egyptian times?? I think it would be neat to read about.
    4. I would want power over the elements. Can you imagine the badassery that would bring to a fight!
    5.I’m kinda stuck where I’m at but it pays my bills and it’s not So bad. One day I’ll be a ninja. Oh yes one day.
    6. I haven’t read those yet. I’m just starting Sundowns book. I fell in love with Nic and my heart broke when his Mom died and again At what has become of him. I want to punch him in the face and tell him to snap out of it
    7. Haha I don’t think the world can handle two of me. It would be awesome though
    8. I don’t really care too much about cars but I would take Nick’s. if I had the cahoneys I would take Ash’s bike.

  25. Really like this idea of re-reading the books and having a discussion/sharing at the end. This is definitely the first time i started reading Dark Hunters in sequence.

    I think it was another book that got me hooked on Ash, Sins of the Night i believe as it was the first book i read. I still like Ash in this book but not much about him was revealed yet.

    I love Nick, his sarcasm and charming affection for Kryian. Of course the Deveraux family always stand out.

    It will be great to read about Spartan world and the world before Zeus like the Titans.

    If i can, i love to have telekinesis and mind reading.

    Love to have a blue Ferrari or mustang.

  26. i like the re-read section, it is helpful to keep track of all the happenings in all of the great books 🙂

  27. “Dark-Hunters have a vast array of supernatural abilities. Which one would you choose to have if you could?”
    I want all of them! Though I definitely wouldn’t like the part about not going out in daylight.

  28. My favorite quotes, not all of them, from Night Pleasures.

    “Oh God, I just kissed a vampire!”
    Oh Gods, I just kissed a human!”

    “I thought only a wooden stake through the heart killed a vampire. (Amanda)
    A wooden stake through the heart will kill just about anything. And if it doesn’t, run like hell. (Kyrian)”

    “What are you doing? (Amanda)
    I’m getting into my car. (Kyrian)
    You own this?! (Amanda)
    No. I’m stealing it with the key in my hand. (Kyrian)”

    “Didn’t I tell you not to touch the Lamborghini? (Kyrian)
    (Hunter groused an instant before he cut the wheel and sent the vampire flying through the air.)
    And they told me you guys couldn’t fly. (Kyrian)”

  29. 1. I think it was the new take on the gods, especially the greek gods, the new idea of vampires and demons. And the fact that it’s action packed with enough romance to entice the reader. And it full of humor, suspense, just enough of everything that readers were kept on their seats.
    2. I was because I had read Chronicles of Nick before so I already knew how big of a mystery he was. It took more than just those books though to get really interested in him and his backstory. I think he’s best was in his and Styxx’s novels.
    3. I would go to the first day that civilization was created, so I could see how it was back then and what really happened. I’m not a person who knows specific times in history, so anything because then it becomes so much more interesting.
    4. Telekinesis. Me being lazy I would love objects to just move around with a thought. And it would be a very nice prank!
    6.I loved all the characters from CoN and I’m hoping to see all of them in the dark-hunter series. It’s good to get to see inside his past and it brings you so much closer to him. I’m wondering if he can be saved. It leaves a bit more confused because the books haven’t completely intersected yet . And there are a lot of AH! moments.
    7. No I don’t have a twin. And none of my siblings look like each other so there’s never that problem.
    8. I would have a smart car. Small and compact.

  30. “I thought only a wooden stake through the heart killed a vampire.” (Amanda)
    “A wooden stake through the heart will kill just about anything. And if it doesn’t, run like hell.” (Kyrian)

    My favourite quote from this book and how true it is!

  31. 3: Kyrian lived in Roman times, and as the series continues we see glimpses of the pasts of other Dark-Hunters. If you could go back to any time in history as an observer for one day, when and where would it be? What time period/place hasn’t yet been used as a Dark-Hunter’s background that you’d like to see?

    I would like to see more Atlantis. I know it was presented in Acheron and Styxx, but I loved the details – made for a very enriching read.

  32. I hope to see a lot more of these two and their their kids as well! I’m quite curious to see how Kyrian will react to Marissa getting a significant other 🙂

  33. I enjoy this book for several reasons, but one of the big ones would be all the hints towards the sort of relationship that exists between Ash and Artemis. As Simi would say, “Heifer goddess.”

  34. I really hope that all their children get their own books, If Sherrilyn has time of course. 😀

  35. 1.What is it about Night Pleasures that spoke to readers and propelled the series to the success it’s had with fans?
    The action/love/trust/brotherhood/crazy families. Oh my goodness I could go on and on they way she mixes pantheons and gives a human like quality to gods.
    2.Though we see little of Acheron in this book, were you immediately drawn to him? Or did it take a few more books?
    … the first book I read was Acheron so I was in love with him already. But in this book I didn’t quite sense him the way I did in his own.
    3.Kyrian lived in Roman times, and as the series continues we see glimpses of the pasts of other Dark-Hunters. If you could go back to any time in history as an observer for one day, when and where would it be? What time period/place hasn’t yet been used as a Dark-Hunter’s background that you’d like to see?
    Hawaii, when they still had a Queen.
    4.Dark-Hunters have a vast array of supernatural abilities. Which one would you choose to have if you could?
    Teleport of course. and to conjure up all sorts of items I want at my will.
    5.Amanda eventually realizes that her life as an accountant is boring and she decides to embrace the person she really is instead of trying to suppress it. Have you ever experienced a life-altering moment such as that where you decided to go down a different path to who you truly are?
    I am still learning who I am.
    6.We also meet Nick Gautier for the first time in Night Pleasures. He’s become a fan favorite, in large part because of his snarkiness. Did it surprise you when Sherrilyn launched an entire young adult series, The Chronicles of Nick, about Nick during his teen years? Have you found that reading those books has enhanced your enjoyment of the Dark-Hunter series?
    I have not read his series. I love nick but I want to finish the dark hunter novels first.
    7.If you are a twin, have you ever been mistaken for your sister/brother? Any funny stories?
    n/a
    8.Dark-Hunters also tend to love their cars. If you could have any type of car in the world, what would it be? What color?
    1986 Ford T-bird red

  36. What is it about Night Pleasures that spoke to readers and propelled the series to the success it’s had with fans?
    I think it was because you could just tell there was a whole hidden world there that we only scratched the surface on, acheron and nick both pull you in as well.
    Though we see little of Acheron in this book, were you immediately drawn to him? Or did it take a few more books?
    oh it was immediate, the first time i read the book i expected a small yodaish character and was blown away by him being the exact opposite of yoda, lol
    Kyrian lived in Roman times, and as the series continues we see glimpses of the pasts of other Dark-Hunters. If you could go back to any time in history as an observer for one day, when and where would it be? What time period/place hasn’t yet been used as a Dark-Hunter’s background that you’d like to see?

    India, they’ve had civilization much longer then the middle east or any of the Mediterranean region. for some reason we still give credit to the middle east for early writing but both India and china had it first, the middle east and the Greeks and Egyptians are so over rated anthropologically speaking,and that’s coming from an anthropologist/archaeologist.
    Dark-Hunters have a vast array of supernatural abilities. Which one would you choose to have if you could?
    besides the immortality? I’d say telekinesis.
    Amanda eventually realizes that her life as an accountant is boring and she decides to embrace the person she really is instead of trying to suppress it. Have you ever experienced a life-altering moment such as that where you decided to go down a different path to who you truly are?
    No, I always go with who I am, when you fight it is when your going through a hard time.
    We also meet Nick Gautier for the first time in Night Pleasures. He’s become a fan favorite, in large part because of his snarkiness. Did it surprise you when Sherrilyn launched an entire young adult series, The Chronicles of Nick, about Nick during his teen years? Have you found that reading those books has enhanced your enjoyment of the Dark-Hunter series?
    surprisingly yes, I was kind of harry pottered out and the percy jacksons started getting cloying, but I do like the CN, just wish nick would have trusted ash from the very beginning, then all this shit wouldn’t have happened.
    If you are a twin, have you ever been mistaken for your sister/brother? Any funny stories?
    not a twin but me and my sisters look alot alike, and have been mistaken for each other alot.
    Dark-Hunters also tend to love their cars. If you could have any type of car in the world, what would it be? What color?
    I had a 66 mustange when i was in the military, would love to haveone again, oh and a flying car, so wish they had those, lol

  37. I was drawn to ash because he’s a mystery…you could tell there was a story behind him but couldn’t figure it out and couldn’t wait until his book was out.

  38. This was my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book and has always been my favorite. I love Kyrian, and Ash always was and still is somewhat of a mystery. I enjoy all of her books but have a few favorites that I could read over and over again.

  39. I don’t ever re-read book series except for Narnia when I was a kid but I’m re-reading this series starting with Night Pleasures. I forgot about the humor. It’s great!
