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.

Until Kyrian meets the most frightening thing imaginable. An accountant who's being hunted by one of the most lethal vampires out there. If Amanda Devereaux goes down, so does he and no offense, he doesn't want to die (hence the whole immortality thing). And he doesn't want humanity dead either which is a good thing for us since he and Amanda are all that stands between us and oblivion. Let's hope they win.

From the wild imagination of Sherrilyn Kenyon comes the humorous and suspenseful manga debut of the #1 internationally bestselling Dark-Hunter series. The world of manga will never be the same again.

Amanda was born into a family entangled in the paranormal, but all she wants is a normal life. Kyrian was a Greek general, born 2000 years ago, until one day his wife betrayed him and he became a dark-hunter (a vampire that hunts vampires). When these two cross paths, their fates change. Both Amanda and Kyrian constantly talk while they try to escape, and eventually hunt down a powerful vampire. This has the unfortunate affect of information getting revealed at an unnatural pace and in an unnatural way. Kyrian especially feels all too willing to share his innermost secrets to someone he only just met. Both characters voice their inner thoughts at points. Their is an immediate attraction between the two, but again thanks to the transition from book to manga, this all feels rushed. Greek mythology becomes the root of this supernatural romance. Some of the connections between this and the vampires are quite clever, and a good deal of time is spent to establish this world. It is this aspect which makes this story interesting. The text is adapted by a western artist in the manga style. The quality just meets the standard, but inconsistencies in faces drawn at certain angles keeps it from being anything special. Both Amanda, and Kyrian struggle to overcome their fears, but in the face of such danger, they will need to do this, fortunately they have each other.
