  • I started reading the Dark Hunter series years ago, and when I get a gift card to an ebook retailer, this is one of the first ones I go for. I love the world of the dark hunters, or the Arcadians and the Katagaria.

    Unleash the Night is the story of Wren Tigarian and Maggie Goudeau. Wren is a one of a kind Katagaria, a hybrid between a tiger and a leopard. He can take human form, but his natural state is that of an animal.

    I love Wren. He strong and beautiful, though he’s been an outcast his whole life. His parents despised him, and even the people who are honor bound to provide him a safe place to leave can’t stand him. It’s gotten to the point where he believes he’s as awful as everyone says he is, and yet he perseveres, day by day, somehow managing to retain a good heart.

    Maggie is the wealthy, pampered daughter of a US Senator. She doesn’t like her life, though, and doesn’t share her friends’ snobby attitudes or better-than-everyone-else outlooks. She’s told what to do, where to go, how to act, and follows along only because she loves her father and wants him to love her, too.

    When Maggie meets Wren, everything changes. She draws him out of his anti-social shell (but only her), and he unwittingly teaches her to stand up for herself and what SHE wants.

    Wonderful story, developed superbly, with great feels. Plus we get to see some well-loved characters from previous (and future books). I haven’t read the series in order, but since each book progresses the series storyline, I’d recommended starting at book 1 and going from there
    if you can.

    This is a series I’ll re-read over and over again.

  • A welcome change of pace in this series! Don't get me wrong - I love the Dark-Hunters, but I really enjoyed Wren's story. Wren is an outcast-a rare white tiger/snow leopard mix shunned by everyone. He has escaped harm thus far by staying at Sanctuary, a bar/refuge run by Were-Bears. Wren is quiet & unassuming - always staying under the radar as he works at the bar as a busboy. But things change the night Maggie Goudeau, a senator's daughter, comes into the bar with friends. For the first time ever, Wren is attracted to a woman. But, things quickly escalate into a bar fight where Wren's animalistic side comes roaring to life. Later, as Wren & Maggie begin exploring their mutual attraction, a devious plot threatens to destroy their chance at happiness and they find themselves on the run for their lives.

    Intense & action-packed but also beautifully romantic & sensual, Betrayed is a tantalizing, sexy read that touched my heart. The characters are well-developed with many layers and the plot is explosive. A strong secondary cast, such as Savitar, adds another layer of intrigue and even funny banter to the story. Love + Lust + Murder = A Page Burner! A Must Read!

  • The Story
    Wren's parents killed each other 20 years ago. He has since worked and lived at Sanctuary. Nicollete, the mother of the bear family that owns sanctuary, is warry of the tiger/snow leopard. Wren never talks to anyone, keeps to himself and the shadows. Then one day a group of preppy rich kids come into the bar. Wren can't keep his eyes off Maggie, and vica versa. The others in the group make fun of him and one throws a beer in his face, it takes two other were-hunters to hold Wren back from the jerk. Maggie stays to apologize to Wren. On her way home she is attacked, Wren senses it and goes to help. In the process he is injured, Maggie keeps coming back to see him she can't help herself. Wren also seeks her out, as his affection grows so does Nicollette's weariness of him. Wrens cousin and uncle accuse Wren of killing his parents, they want control of the company and money Wren has. There is a death order issued on Wren, he goes to Maggie for help. Together they go on a trip to seek the truth.

    This is in my top 5 favorite darkhunter books! I love Wren and his story. He finds himself and confidence in his love for Maggie. She learns to be herself and not be what her father wants. The characters are vivid, believable, relatable and complicated. The pace is very fast and intriguing enough to keep my attention. I read this all in one sitting again. I'm re-reading this series. My heart aches for what Wren had to go through, but he got his happily ever after in the end. The different plots are weaved together beautifully and the emotion comes off the pages quite well.

  • Whenever we got to go to Sanctuary, I always liked seeing Wren and Marvin. They were different than the rest of the "people" there, and that's saying something considering the patrons. What a harsh trip that was, it was epic at times, volcanic like all Were-hunters are with their emotions. Especially their sex drive, Wren is different, he's both tiger and panther. Although that's horrible and shunned pretty much as being and abomination in Wren's world, when Maggie meets him in Sanctuary, it doesn't matter. Of course Maggie's mother's side loves animals and we learn that her favorite place is the White Tiger exhibit at the Zoo near her house.
    I'm really happy Wren got his, like all the ones before, he deserves this.

  • I love the Dark-Hunter series, but sometimes it is a toss-up as to whether I like the vampires or the weres better! This is the second were entry in the saga, and I truly enjoyed it. Wren is a hybrid were and, like Zarek, he is emotionall scarred and in hiding in Sanctuary. Maggie longs to be herself, but her father's political ambitions keep her repressed and unhappy. When these two come together, they will uncover a conspiracy concerning Wren's father, his billion-dollar company and a power struggle within the were counsel. The romance here was solidly built. Wren is a more vulnerable hero than we have ever had before, and Maggie is also unaccustomed to asserting herself. They make a cute couple and I cared about them.

    This novel goes deeper into the were-side of D-H mythology, in addition to the strong romance. We also get to meet Savitar, a mysterious god who governs the weres and is friendly with Acheron. He piqued my interest, and I so hope Kenyon gives us more of him in the future. Overall, I could not put it down - highly recommended!
