Title: Son Of No One
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 2, 2014
I received this audio book from Macmillan Audio, in exchange of an honest review.
Summary: It’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?
Thoughts: This is book 23 in the Dark-Hunters series and 6th of the Hellchasers. There be dragons here. This is one not to miss. Like her Devereaux cousins Josette is sassy and bad ass. When she accidentally falls into a different plane, and meets Cadegan she falls fast. Jo vows to save him against everyone's doubts. I loved it. Son of No One was excellent read. Kenyon's tortured heroes are ever amazing, I can't wait for the next book. Fan favorite Simi is in this one and as always, listening to Simi come alive was a joy. Her reference to new adult was hilarious.
Son of No One is narrated by Holter Graham. I was excited to see Mr. Graham narrating again. He is by far one of my favorites.
Score: 5 Stars
