It's the Christmas season and all hell's breaking loose. Literally. While humans shop, an angry demon lord is plotting an all-out onslaught against his enemies, which - unfortunately for us - includes the human race. But as Stryker gathers his forces, he discovers a grown son he never knew existed and an angry ex, Zephyra, who's as determined to end his existence as he is to end ours. The ultimate predator is about to meet his match as new battle lines are drawn and the Dark-Hunters are rallied for a blood bath on Christmas Eve. The only question is this: can Stryker survive his oldest enemy to fight the ones he really wants to kill ? or will Zephyra finally have her shot at the husband who abandoned her?

“Grudges seldom hurt anyone except the one bearing them.”

Stryker has been a thorn in my heroes’ side for a long time, so I was skeptical when I saw he was going to be the main romantic lead in one of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter novels. In the previous novels, I wasn’t a fan of the villain as he was always trying to kill my favorite characters. However, Kenyon managed to show him in a new light and make him a multi-dimensional character. Instead of a boring book to hold me over until the next one, One Silent Night proved to be more than just filler. Not only do we now understand the root of several problems that have plagued these characters for some time, but get a glimpse of the future of this series.

Zephyra is Stryker’s ex-wife. She sees the chaos created by Stryker’s bid to finally take out Acheron as the perfect moment to get revenge against the man who abandoned her. Beautiful, tough, and black-hearted Zephyra is the perfect ying to his yang. When these two come face-to-face, Stryker wonders if he can win back his lady-love, or if he’ll just have to add her to his long list of enemies. I found this romance to be refreshing as these two characters have a lot of history. Unlike most of the other Dark-Hunter novels which feature quick romances, their history revealed more of Stryker’s character and made him an appealing leading man.

While Stryker is still not a favorite character, I am excited to see what he’ll do next. It’s obvious that the war between good and evil will continue to evolve, and even spill out more into the human realm. Though there will undoubtedly continue to be romance in this series, I feel as if the action will be considerably ramped up. After reading Acheron I was curious to see the direction Kenyon took her series in, and now I feel even more hopeful and excited.
