Zarek's Point of View:
Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.
Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.
Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.
Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.
Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

My ploughing through these books continues! I was worried about this one to begin with. All the Dark-Hunter characters have their traumas; you do become a Dark-Hunter by crying for vengeance usually during a violent and horrific death. So they're not all totally balanced, mentally. And Zarek is th...
Better than book 2. I liked Zarek and "got" why he was like the way he was. It was a bit cliche- a certain person being a virgin. Yes, it was explained, but not buying. It annoys me when there is a character who happens to be immortal (or very long lived) have miniscule experience in the sex de...
Zarek of Moesia, Astrid Zarek broke my heart. The things he has lived through. Thank goodness he now has Astrid and she understand him and loves him. He so deserves it. Also the twists and turns in this one are killer! 4.5 Stars
I'm so pleased that I'm finally getting around to reading this series because I'm enjoying every minute of it. I knew when we met Zarek in Night Embrace that I was going to love him and I wasn't wrong, learning about his past in Dance with the Devil broke my heart but I now have a new favourite tort...
