"The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room."


As the last of Apollo’s direct descendents, Cassandra holds the fate of the world in her hands. If she dies, so do we.

She’s seen the deaths of her mother and four older sisters and hates Stryker with a burning passion. It took her a little while to warm up to Urian, but now she’s delighted whenever he comes to visit.

How old was cassandras mother? Four children before 27?

Mel, October 26, 2015

    It's explained in the books. As part of the curse, Apollites age much faster than humans and hit puberty much quicker than we do. They marry sooner, too. And there are many humans who have four children before the age of 27. But yes, she had them all before the age of twenty.

But from what you're saying Dear Staff member, Daimons only absorb souls of humans, so how does that in any way make them undead? yeah they absorb blood to do so, but when they cross over, do they die?

    The souls die and begin to wither the minute the Daimons take them into their body. The Daimons are walking dead because if they cease to take another soul before the souls that don't belong to them expire, they die immediately. They're living past their expiration date and aren't "alive" anymore. They are walking dead. Animated corpses with a ticking clock on them.

Who finds it odd that Cassandra was in college at 26? Or maybe it's an Apollite thing lol

    She explained it in the book. She was on the run and could only go part time. Class hours don't all transfer from school to school, country to country, and you can't graduate unless you do all your major coursework at the university issuing the degree. There was no way for her to have graduated at that time as online universities weren't up and running yet. So no, it isn't unusual for her to still be in school given her health and circumstances.

Please !!!!!! What does this sentence mean ??? ""The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room ""

Christel, June 19, 2014

    It's a joke about how in the dark, your shinbone is the body part most likely to find furniture first.

I just love Wulf and Cassandra! their book is one of my favorites<3

Loved the story, so nice to see the two of them find each other, though with a massive push from others :o) The only thing I struggle to understand is why Stryker hunts Cassandra so, aren't Stryker and his children (Urian and Medea) also direct descendants/blood of Apollo? Wouldn't they have to die, too for Apollo to die?

    They are dead. Once they become Daimons, they're undead dead people. Cassandra is the only one who is currently living and is descended from one of Stryker's half siblings and is a distant relation he doesn't care about.

Kiss of Night is the first DH book I've read and I have to say I am HOOKED! This book kept me on the edge of my seat and hoping that Cassandra and Wulf found a way for her not to die! I am looking forward to reading more DH and other books by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
