    The typographical spelling errors drove me insane. The story was interesting and I'm glad we got closure from the first installment. Not sure if I will continue reading these. While they are interesting I can tell details have been lost between the original work and the graphic novel. It is enough to pull me out of the story because I don't understand the significance of vital plot points.That, coupled with the typographical spelling errors, make what should be an easy read more of a chore than The typographical spelling errors drove me insane.

    I would have to say that I like the manga versions of the Dark Hunter novels. They're sort of hard to read though. Like finding were to go next to read. It was nice to wait all the characters looked like. I would have to say that I like the manga versions of the Dark Hunter novels. They're sort of hard to read though.

    This was an interesting volume in the series. It wraps up the plot line for Kyrian and Amanda and Desiderius. This review wasn't as good as the first though. There were a lot more errors, mainly grammar ones and instances here the dialogue was in the wrong bubbles so Kyrian would ask himself a question. LOL! The plot got a bit confusing to me - I still don't really understand the climax of the book and how it was solved but oh well. It was still entertaining I guess.

    The manga adaptation of Kenyon's Dark-Hunter paranormal romance series is very well done. It looks as though two manga will equate to each novel. This is very reasonable. The stories are necessarily edited to accommodate the different medium, but are not short-changed in the process. I do wish that the titles conveyed which books were being adapted rather than just doing numbered volumes. D-H volumes 1 and 2 are adapted from "Night Pleasures." Highly recommended.

    I think I still like the actual novel better. I like mangas and this one did a great job in taking the novel and condensing it to a two volume story without losing what the author was going for. The artwork was well done and the story flowed well. It is definitely a YA story but if you're a fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon and have never read the mangas it's something you should do at least once.

    I felt the same about this one as I did the last one and the epilogue made me smile like crazy. I hope I get more of Amanda and Kyrian in the next one but I think they focus on others. Anyway, I’m happy and again, glad to read the next one.

    I've been reading graphic novels for a couple of years now, but reading these Dark-Hunter graphic novels was my first time reading manga. It's very similar to reading 'regular' graphic novels, except that manga is read from the 'back' of the book to the 'front' and from right to left across the page. This took a little getting used to, but really wasn't that big of a deal. Don't let it dissuade you from picking up this series.. it's a super fun way to revisit an all time favorite paranormal roma I've been reading graphic novels for a couple of years now, but reading these Dark-Hunter graphic novels was my first time reading manga.

Don't let it dissuade you from picking up this series.. it's a super fun way to revisit an all time favorite paranormal romance series. The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 2 is the second half of Sherrilyn Kenyon's full length novel, Night Pleasures. It's the second book in her Dark Hunter series, introducing many of the key characters and rules of the Dark-Hunter world while also the romantic story of Kyrian of Thrace and Amanda Devereaux. The characters are drawn in the anime-manga style, but with a definite Dark Hunter vibe. I think the manga writers did an excellent job of capturing the essence of Kenyon's novels. There's humor, action, suspense and romance in these books even though the manga is in a way, an abbreviated version of the novels. There's a lot of the good stuff in these books. I was pleasantly surprised by how much detail about the world and the characters was thoroughly explained in the manga. Reading The Dark-Hunters manga is a great way to revisit these characters and their stories, to get a first taste of the series before deciding to glom the whole series and even gives teens a chance to explore this world from a PG-13 perspective. I recommend it for fans of manga and paranormal romance. The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 1 and 2 tell the story of Kenyon's full length novel, Night Pleasures of her Dark Hunters series featuring Kyrian and Amanda Devereaux. The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 3 and 4 tell the story of Kenyon's full length novel, Night Embrace of her Dark Hunters series featuring Talon and Sunshine.

    The second volume of The Dark-Hunters, a manga adaptation of Sherrilyn Kenyon's immensely popular Dark-Hunter series, picks up right where the second volume left off, with Kyrian's powers in peril and Desidirus (sp?) still up to his evil shenanigans. In this volume, we also see more of Talon, and Acheron the Dark-Hunteriest himself makes his debut. Because I read the book this adaptation is based on (Night Pleasures) in the down-time between the first volume and this one, I read this second volum The second volume of The Dark-Hunters, a manga adaptation of Sherrilyn Kenyon's immensely popular Dark-Hunter series, picks up right where the second volume left off, with Kyrian's powers in peril and Desidirus (sp?) still up to his evil shenanigans. In this volume, we also see more of Talon, and Acheron the Dark-Hunteriest himself makes his debut. Because I read the book this adaptation is based on (Night Pleasures) in the down-time between the first volume and this one, I read this second volume from an entirely different perspective. With the first volume, I was trying to keep up with the story and the characters, but with this one, I just had fun seeing a novel stripped down to images and dialogue, without any overwrought or fluffy prose. (I've read several of the Dark-Hunter novels, and I've mostly given up trying to make much sense of Kenyon's world anyways.) In the end, this adaptation is probably only as good as its source material, and although I think the Dark-Hunter novels are good fun in their own right, I'm not the hugest fan of them. I do, however, think a lot of Kenyon's material works well in manga format. (Then again, I'm biased because I'm a huge fan of manga.) Like, Nick and Amanda yelling in Kyrian's face and having his hair blown back from the force of it? Worked great. And I thought Acheron's character design was absolutely awesome; some of those panels of his face were stunning. I was hoping he'd look good, since he's probably my favorite character in the series. I think fans of the series' prose and high sexual content may not like this adaptation, as it's whittled down to dialogue and has a PG-13 rating. Still, I had a lot of fun seeing the series translated into this format. Next up is Talon and Sunshine's story, Night Embrace.

    This is going to mirror the review I left for volume one, since I read both in one sitting, and it is a cohesive story arc: I was a slacker fan and didn’t pick up the first volume, which came out last year, until I saw volume two, which released this March, on the shelf. Fortunate me! I got the whole of this story arc in one sitting. The first two manga books cover the story of Kyrian of Thrace, whose story Sherrilyn initially told in Night Pleasures.

Fortunate me! I got the whole of this story arc in one sitting. The first two manga books cover the story of Kyrian of Thrace, whose story Sherrilyn initially told in Night Pleasures. Now I’m going to share why this series is a guilty pleasure of mine: the Dark-Hunter series is paranormal romance, and as such there are some lovely, juicy sex scenes in the novels. I was very curious to see how that translated into manga. I was pleasantly surprised by that aspect of the original stories being glossed over. Intimate acts are implied, Nick comments on Kyrian getting laid, but it’s nice and safe for the Teen/13+ crowd this is rated for, and only risqué when we get to see a fair bit—but obviously not too much—of the Dark Hunter Talon (whose story will be told in the next two volumes of the manga series). Joshua Hale Fialkov’s adaptation of Sherrilyn’s story works beautifully with Claudia Campos’ art, and once I remembered the right-to-left reading style of Japanese manga—it’s been a while, alright?—reading and seeing the story unfold was a pleasure. My fear of this style of art making these dreamy beefcake male characters too effeminate was unrealized; though Kyrian is very, very pretty he’s still the manly man, and seeing him as an ancient Greek general is no stretch. Acheron is the perfectly mysterious bad boy, and seeing him drawn reminded me how young he was when he stopped aging. Thank you, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Claudia Campos. I didn’t know it was possible to drool over manga-style men. Bravo!

    This volume of the Dark-Hunter manga, while vastly improved over the first, could still use improvement. The artwork has improved (the depiction of Artemis is quite good). The characters are more expressive. The backgrounds are less sparse and more detailed (though still overly simplistic many times).

The artwork has improved (the depiction of Artemis is quite good). The characters are more expressive. The backgrounds are less sparse and more detailed (though still overly simplistic many times). However, overall, while it is improving ... the artwork is still very novice. Hopefully, though, the upward trend will continue with future volumes. The story, while sticking quite faithfully to the original, is also still quite watered down. As I said in my review of the first volume, I do so wish they would just go for it, put in the graphic content, and slap a graphic content sticker and a celophane wrapper on it. Either that, or at least change the story a tad so that it flows better and makes more sense. This keeping the story the same while glossing over the graphic stuff (which, in some cases, is integral to the story) is annoying at best and downright confusing a worst. I mean, for example, how exactly did Kyrian's powers get drained when neither one of them ever lost any clothes? It's time they either changed the story to be more PG-13, or changed the content to be less so ... because straddling the line between the two just isn't working very well. So, once again, I have to give this 3 stars. It's better than the first ... but still a long way from good.

    This is the second volume in the Dark-Hunter manga... obviously since it has "volume 2" on the cover!

This is the only series I've ever read, so I'm not even sure what a "good" manga is. There isn't a deep connection with characters since basically the writing is completely composed of dialogue. It's hard to get into the mind of the character see what makes them tick, what makes them likable or relatable. It's also different to shift from taking the authors words and depicting my own visualizations, to having the actual images right there in front of me, showing me the story. Overall, I think I might enjoy reading the actual novel over the manga itself, but I still find the manga series enjoyable and different. I just enjoy a closeness to the characters that I think is hard to reach when the novel is in manga format. Instead of rating individual elements, I'll just be giving an overall rating.

Oh wait! 1 slight draw back, I did feel like they kinda of censored it a bit which, wasn't my favorite thing ever but hey, it is what it is. Still a fun read!

    An enjoyable conclusion to the story begun in volume one, however unlike the first volume I definitely felt I was missing a lot of the story in this format with the second volume. The first part sped along enjoyably, but with this one I had to go back and forth a few times and re-read parts to try and find where I had missed an action or change of setting (aside also from a few speech bubbles that connected to the wrong speaker), which interrupted the flow of the story.

I also would have had no idea if they didn't mention it that the action is supposed to be taking place in New Orleans! But an entertaining conclusion to the story, although now that Kyrian and Amanda's story seems to have been rounded off I don't think I will be too worried about reading further stories that centre on the other Dark Hunter characters.

    I never expected these books to covert so well to the manga format. But they work, impressively so. These characters despite being not human are relateable. As I find all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's to be. Mandy is certainly not a damsel in distress and Kyrian is not your average immortal. Even his baggage is inventive.
