Setting: Northern Mississippi

In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow:

Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.

But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That’s when I’m summoned. Who am I? I’m the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line, and it’s my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling.

Or so I thought until I met a Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger—it’s not just her name, it’s how she lives her...

The Hero: Alexion

  Brutally betrayed by the love of his life, Alexion is a quiet man who believes whole-heartedly in talking soft and carrying a big stick. He is truly the angel of death. No one ever wants to face him in the dark of night. Lightning fast and brutally frank, he never takes prisoners. As he would say, he was a science experiment gone wrong.

The Story Behind The Story

Sins of the Night is set in Northern Mississippi where Sherri used to live. She even taught classes at Mississippi University for Women which is where the opening scene of the book takes place. Kyros's house is an old Victorian mansion in Aberdeen that Sherri toured several times during the parade of homes. She even has pictures of her children playing in the yard there.

The original title for Sins of the Night was Sins of Innocence.

Several readers have asked what's the difference between Thanatos and Alexion. Besides the obvious one that Artemis is in control of Thanatos and Acheron is in control of Alexion, there's the matter that Thanatos is called out after a Dark-Hunter is judged rogue (or whenever Artemis wants a particular one dead). Alexion is called in when there is a group of Dark-Hunters about to rebel.

Thanatos kills individuals. Alexion is riot...

Hear it from the Fans

i heard that the boom mentioned styxx, but when i finished it, styxx was no where to be found.. did i read too fast?

Sharon, June 5, 2015

    In the original first edition, there was a short story in the back of the book about Styxx. That story is now in Styxx and Acheron. But for those who have copies with the short, it's included here.

I bought this book about six years ago, and I am just now commenting. That is such a sad state of affairs, but I immensely enjoyed it. I own all of the Dark Hunter series and have enjoyed every one of them, and I just started the CON series. I am commenting on this specific book, because the first page holds a special place in my heart. Grossnickle Hall was named in honor of my grandfather, Russell Lowell Grossnickle. Professor Grossnickle was the head of the mathmatics department for thirty-eight years at what was then called MSCW. I have shown my entire family the wonderful fact that he was honored in this book. Thank you.
