My Thoughts:

This is a short story about Nick Gautier after he has been turned into a Dark-Hunter. This gives the reader a brief glimpse into what Nick is going through after his mother is murdered, and Artemis turns him into a Dark-Hunter.

Things Learned in this story:

  • Nick has a bite mark from Stryker. Stryker has fed from Nick.
  • Stryker has promised Nick the means to destroy Acheron if Nick obeys him.
  • Nick became Ash’s enemy the night that Ash allowed Nick’s mother Cherise Gautier to die. Nick knew that Ash was a god and could have saved his mother.
  • Stryker promised to help Nick get vengeance on Ash if Nick gave Stryker information on Ash.
  • Nick isn’t really truly one of Artemis’ Dark-Hunters. She doesn’t own his soul (we learned this in earlier story). Nick can walk in daylight, and he has greater powers than many Dark-Hunters. He can also walk in cemeteries.
  • Menyara Gautier is Nick’s aunt and a voodoo priestess. She calls Nick Ambrosius.
  • Nick sees Kyrian, Amanda, Valerius and Tabitha together. He is unsettled that Kyrian has reconciled with Valerius.
  • Satara (Stryker’s half sister) approaches Nick. In this conversation, we learn that Nick is a Daimon Dark-Hunter and that Stryker can see and hear all that Nick sees and hears.
  • Satara tells Nick that Acheron’s mother is still alive and that she is Apollymi, the Great Destroyer. Apollymi is Stryker’s mother and the leader of the Spathi Daimons.
  • Satara tells Nick that Ash has been lying to him – that he controls his mother and that he hurts people for his mother.
  • Satara introduces Nick to Kratos who can bring a soul out of eternal rest. They promise Nick that they will return his mother to him if he brings Kyrian and Amanda’s daughter Marissa to Satara.
  • Nick’s loyalty and Marissa could help Satara and Stryker brind down both the Greek and Atlantean pantheons.
