As Valerius is doing one of his rounds, he witnesses a remarkable woman fighting the Daimons. Initially he does not intervene as she seems to be doing fine on her own, besides, she is providing him with quite a unique show. He can’t help but admire her.

As Tabitha Deveraux is fighting an unusually strong group of Daimons, she ends up accidentally staking dark-hunter Valerius Magnus. Not knowing what else to do, and unable to reach Otto, Valerius’ Squire, she calls Nick for help, taking Valerius to her home. When Valerius wakes up in Tabitha's bedroom, he decides that the woman is definitely certifiable. As to Tabitha, she finally has a chance to see up close the most hated dark-hunter in existence … however, as an empath, she sees beyond the obvious and pretty soon she starts getting pretty upset at the way Valerius has been treated.

Seize the Night is Sherrilyn Kenyon's latest installment in her very popular Dark-Hunter series. As usual, we are treated to a fabulous hero/heroine combination. Tabitha is a somewhat eccentric, extremely intelligent, outspoken woman, with a penchant to tell the truth as she sees it. But Tabitha is no fool and despite that apparent eccentricity, she has a huge heart and puts her intelligence and common sense into good use. Val, on the other hand, has suffered the burden of bearing his family's name throughout the centuries. As a result, he has had to learn to grow a rather "thick" armor that no one has ever been able to break … well, no one until Tabitha, that is. Although Seize the Night makes for a great read, it didn't pull my emotional cords or tickled my funny bone as much as some of the previous titles did. However, it is quick paced and a breeze to read (I couldn't put it down until I was done with it) which in my book, are two very GOOD things. Definitely Seize the Night is a must for all of you DH lovers out there, and I am quite happy to add it to my "keeper" shelf.
