Consider this handbook your education. Hunter 101. And don’t go thinking you got off easy just because there’s not a pop quiz at the end. This is the good stuff. The real deal. In here you’ll find out all there is to know about being a Dark-Hunter.
Now for the disclaimer: This book is mutable. It goes with the wind. It changes more often than the mind of a sixteen-year-old Gemini with a closet full of clothes and a date in an hour. Don’t be surprised if you open it up for the thirty-five thousandth time and find something old, something new, something borrowed or… well you get the point.
Curl up in a comfy chair with some millennium-old scotch and feast upon the informative banquet I have prepared for your enjoyment.
“Welcome to your new life. Go kick some ass.”
The Dark-Hunter Companion is so much fun! It is filled with tons of useful and well-structured information, written in a really engaging style.
For DH fans, it is a must read!
This book won’t get too deep into the nitty-gritty. The real down and dirty stuff you’ll have to ask the tight-lipped Goth Royal Tallness himself.
Well, maybe really not that dirty, but it is detailed enough.
As it is a handbook for brand-new Dark-Hunters, the first part of it is a guide that tells you
- how you got here, i.e. you sold your soul for vengeance.
- the basics about your newly-created immortal body and senses: you better cancel your invitations for beach parties.
- rules of your new life, to-dos, not-to-dos, and how-to-dos
This part also gives you tips and practical advice, a glossary of DH slang, and a list of definitions of extra powers you may have. Or not. As for me, I would be satisfied with omnipotence.
The Dark-Hunter Directory not only lists your fellow Dark-Hunters, but also serves a memorial to those who have passed away in the line of duty. The Directory gives their background story, time and place of birth, powers, current location, even their appearance.
The following chapters are about:
- the myth and origins of Were-Hunters, their magic and ability to time travel;
- Dream-Hunters, their origins, hierarchy, and roles;
- the significance and branches of Squires;
- Apollites and Daimons;
- Gods and Goddesses;
- and lists all of them, even important Civilians of the Dark-Hunter Universe.
Besides, there are chapters about Atlantis, Greek traditions, superstitions, sayings, and meals (with recipes), New Orleans and Cajun Culture.
The things mentioned above are very informative, and useful, if you quickly need to look up something.
But my absolute favorite parts are the interviews with Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron, and Simi.
