The Dream Hunter - Sherrilyn Kenyon 2.5 stars

I have a couple other series that I’m about 11 books in and they can still get me all fangirl-squee-hyperventilating and whatnot. I wish I could say the same for this series. I wish, I wish, I wish.

Geary (short for Mageara) and her family have been searching for Atlantis. Meanwhile a dream hunter, Arik, has been stalking her in her dreams. While in her dreams Arik desperately wants to be with her outside of the dreaming realm so he strikes a deal with the devil. Hades only needs one thing in return, Geary’s soul. Okay, let’s stop here for a minute. Are you for reals? You want to meet the woman of your dreams and then give her soul away after two weeks? How am I supposed to like you now? How? Ugh. Anyway, Arik is now human and on Earth. Geary finds him and somehow he ends up on the little Atlantis adventure with her. This is Arik’s first time on Earth so he doesn’t understand many things and makes little mistakes. It made him a little more likeable and endearing to me. It was cute. Their romance starts to heat up and, of course, Ms. Kenyon delivers some fun banter and sexy loving.

Then comes in The Conflict. This is where these books lose me. Every time. I get to know the MC and the secondary characters. They’re cute, fun and I’m ready for their HEA. Then all these new gods, hunters, and I don’t even know whats come in. They all have Greek names that I'm completely unfamiliar with and she’s lost me. So basically, I’m not quite sure how everything was resolved.

Then the last chapter? WTF! I’m guessing this isn’t really #11 and it’s not going in the timeline of the rest of the series. I saw Nick’s name and I was SO EXCITED! But then he's all friendly with Ash? What? I was confused and then realized it must not be in chronological order. Then I was pissed. Whatevs.

I don’t know if I’m continuing after this or not. I might go back to the Chronicles of Nick series instead and see if that reignites my interest in this series.
