18159196Latest in the Darkhunters saga, Son of No One doesn’t really involve many characters from the other books.  Instead we focus on the infamous females of the Deverau’s line as one of their members, Jossette, gets pulled into an ancient Irish hell realm where a demonic demigod has been kept imprisoned by his own ‘brother’ for two centuries.  Partly for his own good, mostly to protect the rest of the world from him.

So Caden, the demonic demigod, finds Josette, the first female/non-hostile being he has seen in over two centuries, and you can guess what happens between them as Cadeon searches for a way to get her home again.

Some old friends are brought into the mix to help: Ash, Simi, Talon, etc, but for the most part Josette and Cadeon are on their own.  Well, except for a local were-dragon mute of course.

In the end Josette is freed, Cadeon is reunited with his ‘brother’ and despite his newly unleashed demonic tendencies that can destroy the world, he’s slowly trying to acclimatize himself to the new world he finds himself in, and he new family that surrounds him.

One thing I didn’t like about Son of No One, Cadeon’s ‘brother’ went by two different names that kept interchanging.  Like Cadeon knew him by one name, everyone else knew him by another and he kept referring to himseld by both names so it got confusing at times as to who was speaking/being referenced to.

All in all another hit for Sherrilyn Kenyon.
