Devil May Cry by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Sometimes, just sometimes, you can lie on a towel on a nice hot beach and slurp an icecream cone and read pointless fluff like the Dark Hunter series. If you have an afternoon to waste and need junk food for the brain, this series is your pick.

It’s ye olde Mills & Boons with a twist. The chap with the Greek god biceps is quite likely to be a Greek god. Or an Atlantean one. Or one of the Roman pantheon. Or demon. Or a vampire, demon slayer. He is over 8 feet tall, more muscular, more seductive, more arrogant and has a bigger -er, ego than ever. Who’s complaining? Certainly not their long-legged, immortal, lady-companions.

The real surprise here are the fans – there are apparently millions of Kenyon’s Minions, who have catapulted this writer of penny romances with a slick website and enough MySpace savvy into the bestsellers lists and the Dark Hunters into a cult.

If, like me, you prefer your vampires and demons to actually maintain some sort of chill factor, then you will not appreciate having Sherrilyn Kenyon watering them with lurid sex, of which there is aplenty. I don’t mind buns of steel, but I’d be just as happy with buns of cinnamon as long the man can carry his end of a conversation! 

Most people I know would rate this book as marginally more interesting than picking lint from between their toes – yes, we are all actually elitist intellectual literary snobs here. 🙂
