Review: Daryk Hunter by Denise A. Agnew

Daryk Hunter (Daryk World, #1) by Denise A. Agnew

Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance

Heat Rating: 2



When Magonian archaeologist Ketera Aldrancos’ father is imprisoned, she’s determined to save him. Before she can do so, her ship is wrecked. Water laps at her, a man’s strong arms surround her. His husky voice soothes her. Then she realizes she’s on a foreign beach in the arms of a dreaded Dragonian. A man who looks nothing like the men she’s known. His closeness, his touch sends waves of need through Ketera’s core and shame runs through her. After all, passions are sinful.

Dane Charger, a Dragonian Daryk One, cradles the woman in his arms. He aches to introduce her to the headiest lovemaking imaginable. But his eyes flame red and a growl vibrates his throat when he realizes he’ll need to protect her from marauding slave traders led by a vicious rogue—who just happens to also be his half brother.

Two people whose supercontinents are separated by ocean and two thousand years of prejudice and fear. Two people who may be the secret to saving a race from extinction.

Ashira Datya’s Review

I was very relieved to have a novel to read and review right now; I needed a distraction and distract me it did! Daryk World: Dark Hunter was a well written novel that had me on the edge of my seat.

Ketera was on her way to save her father from certain death when her ship was caught in a storm and she became ship wrecked in a land that was very different than her own. She is rescued by Dane, a Daryk Hunter, a warrior.

Ketera lives in a place across a great ocean from Dane, where sex isn't supposed to be enjoyable and is only to be used for procreation. Dane comes from a world where sex is not taboo and is open for all. Together, they learn about love, who they are, and have to survive a war.

I really loved Daryk World: Daryk Hunter. Ketera was an enjoyable character to read about and there was so much tension and contrast that it left me sitting on the edge of my seat, eager to find out what would happen next. I can't wait to read the sequels!

I give Daryk Hunter four Tea Cups and a heat rating of a two. This was such a well written story; I would read any story by the author of this crafty tale.

4 Tea Cups!
