It's been some time since I last picked up a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon!
Not sure why really ... lots of books and time sure does fly!
Anyways, because it's been so long I had a hard time remembering a few things about the series so it was a slow start (totally my issue not Sherrilyn's)
I was a little confused until I realized this book was part of several series all pulled together! HA! Now that made more sense ... so on I read!
This book was fantastic, once I figured out it was part of several series (LOL) and then it all started clicking into place ... I missed falling into Sherrilyn's creative worlds ... I missed her characters! I missed her humour, sarcasm, and wit!
I have a good collection of books by Sherrilyn ... I love ALL her work so it's no surprise that I would recommend this book, all her books!

Son of No One (Dark-Hunter #24)
by Sherrilyn Kenyon
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?
