The world of Dark-Hunters beautifully illustrated but strangely censored.

The Dark-Hunters
Volumes 1 & 2

Manga by Clauida Campos
Story by Sherrlyn Kenyon

In the war against vampires, mankind has only one hope: The Dark-Hunters. Ancient warriors who died of brutal betrayal, the Dark-Hunters have sworn themselves into the service of the goddess Artemis to protect us.

It's a pact with pretty good perks. Immortality, power, psychic abilities, wealth and a cool wardrobe. But it comes with a few drawbacks: fatal sun poisoning and a new, irreparable dental problem. But aside from the fangs and nocturnal lifestyle, it's not so bad.

Kyrian is an immortal Dark-Hunter who just lost his Dark-Hunter powers and along with it, his immortality. Now he is faced with the chance to regain not only his humanity, but his very soul. The problem is, it couldn't have happened at a worse time. Desiderius is closing in and if Kyrian and Amanda are going to save humanity then Kyrian must take the war to his enemy or it may be too late.

My review guidelines can be found HERE.

• Beautiful in full color. Wish there were a couple interior spreads in color as well.

• The characters illustrated on the cover show up very minimally in the story. They are big players but don't really make sense on the cover. You only see Artemis once in the end, Simi never?...

• Dark-Hunters
• Vampires
• Gods

• M/F

• Beautiful illustrations

• Verbatim excerpts from the book

• Mere suggestions of sex, almost chaste

• These two manga cover the Night Pleasures Dark-Hunter Book.

• Nick's hair changes from volume 1 to 2. Starting off long dark and slicked back in volume 1 and changing to short, light and spiked in volume 2.

• For virgin manga readers, the format will be hard to get used to. Your eyes just want to read from left to right. But there is a helpful guide at the end of the book.

• Also, the illustrations are high quality. Ms. Kenyon mentioned in the past (but for the life of me, I can't find the link to that interview) that her love of manga drove her to produce this complimentary series to the Dark-Hunter novels and subsequently she made sure to pick a premium illustrator.

Read a sentence from page 56 HERE.

And Nick's hair change wasn't addressed??

Not that I could see. But I did just submit it in the blooper section of Ms. Kenyon's official site.

I totally forgot about his hair change! And know what else? ... I LOVE MY BUTTON!!!!!

Thanks so much for delving into my head. It's scary in here sometimes, so it is nice to have company! Don't step on the zephyr...
