Setting: Las Vegas

An ancient Sumerian god, Sin was one of the most powerful among his pantheon… Until the night Artemis stole his godhood by trickery and left him one step from death.

For millennia, this ex-god turned Dark-Hunter has dreamed only of regaining his powers and seeking revenge on her. If only life were that simple.

Unfortunately he has bigger fish or in his case, demons, to fry. The lethal gallu that were buried by his pantheon are now stirring and they are hungry for human flesh. Their only goal is to destroy mankind and anyone else who gets in their way. Lucky Sin is the only one who can stop it, that is if a certain woman doesn’t kill him first.

Trust of any kind died in him the moment Artemis tricked him, but now he must rely on another woman or see an...

The Heroine: Katra

  Only Kat knows her origins and she's not real big on sharing. A former handmaiden to Artemis, she now serves Apollymi whom she adores. She's quick and deadly and lives to taunt any male she can find, especially Stryker. She has a soft spot for Simi and baby Eric. And she will fight to the death to protect anyone she loves. There are those who believe she was born of the gods, but few are willing to question that. Some even claim she...

The Story Behind The Story

Sherri fell in love with the Sumerian legends when she discovered Gilgamesh in Jr. High. Their demonology in particular whet her appetite.

Sin (pronounced Seen) was one of her original Dark-Hunters back when she wrote the short stories. She wanted to show what happened when two gods went to war and one lost. When she sat down to do Kat's story, she knew no other would do Kat justice.

This was set in Vegas because Sherri wanted to be able to use the desert for a couple of books. Not to mention, with it being such an active tourist area and a 24 hour town, with a lot of underground routes, it was perfect for a Daimon haven. And as we all know, Daimons don't like to unwrap their food.

Sherri's been to Vegas many times and loves it. Her favorite hotel is the Venetian and her favorite restaurant is Lawry's. But it's the fountains she loves best.

Re-reading the whole series and is now on Devil May Cry in prep for Son of No One... Really love the scene where Ash and Katra *finally* meet!!! Kept repeating it over and over.

Sorry, but this is very bad. I can't believe by googling "devil may cry book" I have found this. Devil May Cry (go to wikipedia) is not a saying (you can easily find it in many other media - very easy to come up with), its a series of hack-and-slash video games created by Capcom. Well know and well recieved. Never heard of this book, but its insulting to use the title of something, which is already so loved by fans. Devil May Cry is called so because: main character Dante literally makes Demons cry (he is way too powerful for them) and at the end of DMC3, he does cry, even though he is half-demon, due to loss of his brother Vergil. I know my stuff, sorry. Title DMC belongs to Capcom, hands down.

    And again THE AUTHOR HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TITLING THE NOVELS. MARKETING DOES. I know the game as I play it, too, and Sherri is a fan of the anime. However the phrase THE DEVIL MAY CRY is an old adage that Capcom used when they created their game. They didn't coin it and they don't own it. THIS IS A BOOK NOT A VIDEO GAME. THEY ARE DIFFERENT PROPERTIES and no one is going to confuse a novel about the Sumerian god Sin with Dante or Nero or Sparda-- I know my stuff, too. You cannot copyright titles and THE AUTHOR HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TITLING THE NOVELS. I should also add that at the time DMC DH was named, DMC wasn't that big a franchise and most people had never heard of it. In fact, DH is a larger international franchise to this day than DMC is.

They took the name of the book "Devil may cry" from something else that is all ready existed with a story and more :| shame full....

    Eyal... The titles are given by marketing and it comes from an old poem and from a line in Sherri's book, not the Devil May Cry manga and anime. Sherri's universe predates the Devil May Cry games and manga. What is shameful is insulting things you know nothing about and before you've taken a moment to investigate them. The saying The Devil May Cry predates Funimation and Capcom. Carl MB Staff

Morgan Brown, May 6, 2013

    It is part of the Dark-Hunter series. If you click on Sin or Katra's profile, it will list all the books they appear in.

    MB_Staff, July 23, 2013

I have three of your books in The Dark Hunter Series and I have enjoyed listening to them so much so that I have listened to them twice thru. I have to say that Simi has become one of my most favorite characters. Is her character in all of the books? I hope to have all of the books in the series on CD by the end of the year. Thank You Sherrilyn for the muse that you have and that you share with the rest of us. Julie
