Book Description:

“Harm no human…
A hired gunslinger, William Jessup Brady lived his life with one foot in the grave. He believed that every life had a price. Until the day when he finally found a reason to live. In one single act of brutal betrayal, he lost everything, including his life. Brought back by a Greek goddess to be one of her Dark-Hunters, he gave his immortal soul for vengeance and swore he’d spend eternity protecting the humans he’d once considered prey.
Orphaned as a toddler, Abigail Yager was taken in by a family of vampires and raised on one belief—Dark-Hunters are the evil who prey on both their people and mankind, and they must all be destroyed. While protecting her adoptive race, she has spent her life eliminating the Dark-Hunters and training for the day when she meeting the man who killed her family: Jess Brady.
A gun in the hand is worth two in the holster…
Jess has been charged with finding and terminating the creature who’s assassinating Dark-Hunters. The last thing he expects to find is a human face behind the killings, but when that face bears a striking resemblance to the one who murdered him centuries ago, he knows something evil is going on. He also knows he’s not the one who killed her parents. But Abigail refuses to believe the truth and is determined to see him dead once and for all.
Brought together by an angry god and chased by ancient enemies out to kill them both, they must find a way to overcome their mutual hatred or watch as one of the darkest of powers rises and kills both the races they’ve sworn to protect.”
My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed listening to the audio version of Retribution.  It was very entertaining and funny at times.  The author did a wonderful job with all the characters in the book, as each of the characters had their own stories to tell .  They each had made mistakes in their human lives and they try to make up for what they did.
I really like Jess and  Abigail together and I loved the strong connection they had to each other.  They were both very strong characters who had been through a lot.  Despite their pasts and the fact  that Abigail wanted to kill Jess at first because she thought he killed her family, she later learns the truth and finds herself falling for him.  Jess is an amazing character.  Despite everything he went through, he had a wonderful sense of humor throughout the book. He was an amazing fighter and protected Abigail despite her killing one of the dark hunters.  We later find out there is a reason for their connection.
Sherrilyn is an amazing writer.  She has a way of bringing her characters and story to life.  I would recommend the Dark Hunter series and any of her books to anyone.  I can’t wait to read some more of her books!

(My apologies for the bad formatting of this post. I attempted to put the “book description” in block quotes, and that didn’t work. No matter what I do, I can’t get the formatting to cooperate with me on this one. 😦 I figured it was better just to get it posted rather than not having anything to post.)
