Dream Chaser( Dark Hunter #13)

Dream Chaser (Dark-Hunter #13, Dream-Hunter #3)Dream Chaser Summary:
Hades doesn’t often give second chances...

Xypher has one month on Earth to redeem himself through one good deed or be condemned to eternal torture in Tartarus. But redemption means little to a demigod who only wants vengeance on the one who caused his downfall.

Until one day in a cemetery...

Simone Dubois is a medical examiner with a real knack for the job. Those who are wrongfully killed appear to her and help her find the evidence the police need to convict their killers. But when a man appears and tells her that she’s more than just a psychic, she’s convinced he’s insane.

Now the fate of the world hangs in her hands...

It was bad enough when just the dead relied on her. Now’s there’s the seductive Dream-Hunter Xypher who needs Simone’s help in opening a portal to the Atlantean hell realm to fight insatiable demons. The future of mankind is at stake—and so is her life. The only question now is: Who is the bigger threat: the demons out to kill her, or the man who has left her forever changed?

Dream Chaser Review:

The third installment in the Dream Hunter series was a resounding success, in my opinion. Xypher and Simone had a much more believable love story and very fleshed out characters. Simone was a strong female heroine. She did not give way to Xypher's demands and knew what kind of person she was. Her witty humor was paired perfectly to her empathetic and intelligent persona. Her isolation also made her interesting. Without any friends to guide her through her tough times, she has a hardened personality and it was lovely to see her sisterly relationship with Jesse, Tate and her love for Xypher. Xypher was the same, on a much more serious level of course. Falsely accused and tortured for an eternity, he is given one month to prove his worth and to kill the one who caused him so much pain. With the time he was given, Xypher managed to get stuck to a human, fall in love with said human, bargain with a demon, nearly lose his life and discover a secret for his fate, and he threatened Ash. Quite a list for a guy on Earth for only a month! It was a sweet story while we watched Xypher reveal his inner vulnerability. I must say that Ms. Kenyon perfected her tortured hero in Xypher, leading to an interesting and touchy love story between Simone and Xypher. I am not a huge fan of dramatic love stories and sex scenes, so this book worked for me.

Secondary characters like Jesse, and Tate were great ways to relieve stressful situations with witty humor. Jaden was an interesting addition to the series. For anyone who has continued to read this series and those who have read the latest book of Chronicles of Nick will understand why he is such a pivotal character. He is a man of many secrets and one day some must be revealed. If you were looking carefully at Ms. Kenyon's posts, we know that we are now in the Jaden story arc, so our wishes may be answered soon! We also go to see old characters like Julian, which was great and of course Ash.

The plot was intriguing. We got to see a different side to the Dimme and meet the Charonte demons of New Orleans. The action was a underlying theme through the book and it was continuously peppered with light humor.

One such scene is the dance scene with Xypher, Gloria, Jesse and Simone. It was a cute scene right in the middle of drama, and was a great way to reveal the true emotions of the main characters.

The book is filled with very interesting sub-plots that keeps on expanding throughout every book. There was HUGE world-building in the novel and it will continue to grow from here. I love the direction the series is going, but a fair warning that there is probably going to be less romance from now because of the mythology and series of characters involved. Overall this book was a 4.5-5 star rating, so far the best in the Dream Hunter series.
