Unleash the Night (Dark hunter #8)

Unleash the Night (Dark Hunter, #8; Were-Hunter, #2)Unleash the Night Summary:
It's a predator-eat-predator world for the Were-Hunters. Danger haunts any given day. There is no one to trust. No one to love. Not if they want to live...

An orphan with no clan that will claim him, Wren Tigarian grew to adulthood under the close scrutiny and mistrust of those around him. A forbidden blend of two animals - snow leopard and white tiger - Wren has never listened to anyone when there was something he wanted. Now he wants Marguerite.

Marguerite D'Aubert Goudeau is the daughter of a prominent U.S. senator who hates the socialite life she's forced to live. Like her mother before her, she has strong Cajun roots that her father doesn't understand. Still, she has no choice but to try and conform to a world where she feels like an outsider. But the world of rich and powerful humans is never to meet the world of the Were-Hunters who exist side by side with them, unseen, unknown, undetected. To break this law is to call down a wrath of the highest order.

In order to have Marguerite, Wren must fight not just the humans who will never accept his animal nature, but the Were-Hunters who want him dead for endangering their world. It's a race against time and magic without boundary that could cost Marguerite and Wren not just their lives, but their very souls...

Unleash the Night Review:
I honestly went into this book not expecting a lot. It was probably the feeling of the last book and the fact that Wren had not left a big impression on me from Chronicles of Nick. And I had not met Maggie before so I didn't know how to feel about her. I was glad to have fell in love with this book. Both the characters, especially Wren made this book amazing! The book started with both Maggie and Wren being aloof with one another but they do meet and have a chance to get to know each other. It could be a little because of Nick, who knew both of them. It was great to see them defying the odds to be together. The main thing that irritated me was her father, and all her friends. They were the stereotypical rich people, and it angered me that they thought they could control Maggie and her life choices. I loved, on the other hand how she fought them away and how Wren let Maggie make her own choices. I feel that Maggie might have been the stronger one in the relationship because she brought Wren out of his shell and led him to his destiny. Also, it was nice to see Wren show the rich friends how powerful he is when his secret company was revealed!

This book was a little confusing, because of the time travel.

*SPOILER WARNING* He goes back in time to see his dad to pick up a package. This causes him to save his dad's life and to die and to make the dad send the package. None of this would have happened had Wren not gone back in life. It also made Maggie into a snow leopard. So I was stuck in this loop, and I was just confused. *END OF SPOILER*

This did nothing to detract from the story, but it was something that lingered in my mind. The whole plat was based on Wren saving his name from being killed by the Omegrion. I couldn't stand Nicole in this series because of how she treated Wren. She hated him for none other than the fact that he was a hybrid. I loved her in other books, but this one I wanted to hurt her, even at the end when she tried to apologize. I loved seeing some old characters like Fang and new like Sav. And I hope to see them more often throughout the series.

I was happy that Kenyon focused more on the romance than the world building. The book wouldn't have been nearly as good if it was the other way around. Overall this book was 5 stars!
