Sherrilyn Kenyon--Time Untime (Dark Hunter series)

Genre: Paranormal Romance-dark hunter

The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy…

Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.

The Time Untime approaches…

Kateri Avani has been plagued her entire life with dreams she doesn’t understand. Images of places she’s never been and of a man she’s never seen. Her quest for answers has driven her to Las Vegas where she hopes to finally silence the demons in her mind.

What she never anticipates is coming face to face with the warrior who has haunted her her entire life. One who belongs to a world the scientist in her refuses to believe is real.

Ren Waya came back from the dead to keep the prophecy he began from coming true and ending the world. For thousands of years, he has fought the same evil that once possessed him. But now that evil has found the one person he can’t fight. The one person who, against his will, holds the most sacred part of him.

His heart.

But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once.

Will he be able to make it again?

{5 stars}
At first, I wasn't really sure about this one. I was very confused with the last book, I am not as knowledgeable about the Native American Pantheon to truly understand the legends. And now, with Ren's story we get some Mayan prophecies added to the mix. I spent the first quarter of the book confused and almost ready to give up. But Dark Hunter fans never quit. So I trudged on, and not that I understand the Native American or Mayan legacy anymore than before, but I understand the path Kenyon is taking us on. She is spreading her wings outside what we have all become comfortable with and introducing us to a whole new world of Dark Hunters. Ren is heartbreaking to watch as his past is relived thru visions in Kateri's eyes. They are destined for a path neither was prepared for, but isn't that what love does to us? It catches you off guard. Their path is wonderful, dangerous, and full of classic Kenyon humor. Some of our favorite Dark Hunters make appearances to help reset time to keep the apocalypse from happening. Now everything is coming together. Little did we know there were so many Pantheons out there and that Artemis had been so busy. If you get bogged down with the start of this book, don't give up, it really is a true Kenyon Dark Hunter book, just in a different time zone. And if you aren't a Dark Hunter junkie yet, start immediately with Fantasy Lover. You'll become one of us before you finish the first book.
