Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Get Off Your Laurels, Kenyon!: Unleash the Night: Dark-Hunters #9

Unleash the Night:  Dark-Hunters #9 by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Paranormal Romance

This latest installment in the Dark-Hunters series was my least favorite yet. 

In it, Marguerite is a very sheltered young woman who is saved from a dangerous encounter by a mysterious and strong and incredibly good-looking man.  She falls in love with him and finds out he is not what he appears, because he is a shape-shifting tiger.  Against all odds, they fall in love and are determined to stay together.

Even the plot summary for that felt boring.  This one was just so trite and predictable.  I hate when that happens in a series!  For a series to continue to capture readers, it must continually instill some new element in the story.  This one didn't.  It just felt as if the author were resting on her laurels.  Get off your laurels, Kenyon!  You have the moxie for on-the-edge, so write that way!

Sigh.  I'll read the next one and hope this was just a fluke.  Otherwise, I'm going to need some other recommendations to feed my vampire fix.
