Review: Seize the Night (Dark-hunter, #7) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

The book is with Adult content so please, 18+ readers

Goodread summary:
Valerius isn't a popular Dark-Hunter-he's a Roman, which means that the largely Greek Hunters have a major grudge against him and his civilization for superceding them. To make things worse, he's very conscious of his aristocratic background and breeding. So it serves him right when he runs into Tabitha Devereaux. She's sassy, sexy, and completely unwilling to take him seriously. (Not to mention that she's the twin sister of the wife of former Dark-Hunter Kyrian-Val's mortal enemy.) What Tabitha does take seriously is hunting and killing vampires-and soon she and Val have to grapple with the deadliest of all Daimons-one who's managed to come back from the dead, and one who holds a serious grudge against both of them. To win against evil, Val will have to loosen up, learn to trust, and put everything on the line to protect a man he hates and a woman who drives him nuts.

Hm, I loved this one too, I loved the ending the best. It was hilarious the last chapter.
This books is about Valerius, a Roman- which guarantees him the hatred of all the Greek Hunters, and Tabitha Devereaux, the sister that fights the vampires on her own.
Those two formed the most unwanted couple, and by that I mean that nobody liked the idea of the two of them together.
Valerius, or Val as Tabitha calls him, is a spitting image of the man that killed Kyrian and all the tension comes from the fact that pretty much everyone hate the Romans. He is used to being alone, used to not sharing and he is used to being more than everyone else. He is a Roman and he sees himself as a superior to most people and that's because he was raised that way but that is also just a defense mechanism. He is not fragile exactly but he is damaged by his past just like the rest of the hunters and this closed of, cold demeanor is his way of coping and staying sane, I think...
Tabitha is the complete opposite of him, she is young, vibrant, full of life and scarred by the knowledge of what walks the night. She is the fighter in the family and she has her own battle scars and lots and lots of memories that keep her up every night, walking around town looking for vampires to kill. She is mocked by everyone because it seems absurd to stalk the night as a vampire slayer but she holds her head high and she deals with her own issues.
And those two attract themselves like magnets. It's almost funny how they meet and their story progressed beautifully. It was full of unexpected turns and I was on the edge of my seat for the best part of it.
It was interesting, compelling, addictive and well, it's as great as the rest of the books. I can't wait to read the next one. In this one there were a lot of new revelations that the characters might not remember but I will and I can't wait to see where things with Acheron and Nick will go. There are a lot of unanswered questions and I want to know what's gonna happen next so next of.. Sins of the night!
