Review 'Son of No One' by Sherrilyn Kenyon’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Life will continue to throw every bad thing it has at her, and she will continue to not put her head in an oven. But that’s okay. That which doesn’t kill her will just require a few hours of mental insanity. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group trying to get their own cable show as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running. But when her group accidentally releases something truly evil into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcement.

From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn’t quite right. And it’s not just because she can’t even begin to pronounce his last name: Maboddimun. Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his apparent age…

Centuries ago, Cadegan sold his soul for vengeance against the betrayer who cursed him. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him as much as it irritates and frustrates him. Something he can’t seem to fight, and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him his soul.

He knows he has to stay away from her, but the evil her friends unleashed is hellbent on consuming her soul. Something he cannot allow. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?

My Review:

In November of last year I read the collection of Novella’s by Sherrilyn Kenyon called ‘Dark Bites’. That book was my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book and I loved it. So when I was asked to review ‘Son of No One’ I immediately agreed.  ‘Son of No One’ is the sixth book in the Hellchaser series.

In ‘Son of No One’ we meet Josette. Josette is having a lot of bad luck lately. She found out her husband was cheating on her and now she has lost her job. Soon Josette is desperate to find a new job so she can keep taking care of her three beloved dogs.
One night when Josette is helping her family out with filming a cleansing ritual she somehow falls through a mirror into another world. And not a very happy one. Everything is without color and soon Josette meets the evil residents of this world. Thankfully that’s when Cardegan sees Josette. Cardegan was betrayed by his brother many years ago and now he has been stuck in a immortal prison for many many years. Josette is the first human he sees in years and soon he can’t stay away from her.

Even though this book is the sixth book in the Hellchaser series, and I haven’t read the previous books in this series I found myself really looking forward to reading this book. Soon after I started reading I was completely pulled into the world Sherrilyn Kenyon creates. This book is definitely not a slow romance novel. No, the romance is intense and happens and moves very fast. At times it moved a little too fast for my taste but I still really liked Josette and Cardegan. Josette was this brave Cajun woman with a lot of passion, and Cardegan was just a little sad. He was very handsome and strong, but I mainly found him sad because of all the betrayal he had to go through.

There is a lot of action happening in this book and this book moves really fast. You definitely don’t get the time to lose your concentration. I definitely enjoyed this book and the romances and family bonds. But I do really think you’ll love this book even more if you have read the previous books in this series. There were just some thinks I didn’t quite understand. And there were really a lot of new characters for me to get to know. I honestly would forget who everybody was. I mean those names where a little difficult for me to remember.

But mainly I really enjoyed this book. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s writing style is very addictive and easy to read and I love the way she describes her characters. I’ll definitely be reading more books by her.
