Dream Chaser

Dream Chaser, the 16th novel in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s long running Dark Hunter series moves the ever expanding mythology one step closer to the ultimate battle between good and evil. A series of strange murders in New Orleans has Simone Dubois puzzled. Is this the work of the soul-sucking Daimons that inhabit the city or is there a new sinister species wrecking havoc in her fair city. Enter Xypher, a dream hunter granted a one month leave by Hades to seek revenge against the women who damned him to hell. Is anyone safe in a city inhabited by demons, gods, ghosts, and were-hunters? A fast paced story that sets the stage for Kenyon’s highly anticipated 17th book Acheron due out later this summer. If you enjoy paranormal romance, spend the summer with some gorgeous men and feisty women and read the Dark Hunter series. Book One, Fantasy Lover is available in the paperback section of the Wayne Public Library.
