One Silent Night is another book in the Dark-Hunter series. Check out the link below for a listing of the books in the series according to reading order.
From Amazon :
While the world carries on unawares, Stryker, who leads an army of demons and vampires, is plotting an all out onslaught against his enemies—which, unfortunately for us, includes the entire human race. To avenge his sister, Stryker prepares to annihilate the Dark-Hunters. But things go awry when his oldest enemy returns. Enter his ex-wife. Zephyra. Just when he thought nothing could stop him, he’s now embroiled in a centuries old war with a shrew who gives new meaning to pain.

Book Review of One Silent Night.
One Silent Night is a book I consider boring but essential reading for Dark-Hunter fans.

Stryker and Zephyra's story was a disappointment. It started off rather promisingly with the divorced couple trying to kill each other. Unfortunately, despite their supposed bloodthirsty tendencies, the story quickly degenerates when they strike a bargain for Stryker to win back Zephyra. And almost immediately, they're both more preoccupied with getting into bed together than anything else. This sudden change was simply too amazing to be believable.

The other thing that disappointed me was the author's attempt to turn Stryker and Zephyra into some kind of hero. While I have no problems with the idea of an honourable villain, this sudden about face where their actions are rationalized as retaliation against human cruelty is too much.

However, this is another story in the series which shouldn't be missed. There are revelations galore regarding important characters such as Acheron, Nick, Savitar and the newly introduced Jared in the Dark-Hunter world. It also contains what promises to be a crucial turning point in the war between the Dark-Hunters and Daimons. All in all, a change in the status quo is definitely imminent.

My conclusion : Not to be missed by Dark-Hunter fans.

My favourite books from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter and Dream-Hunter series so far :
