Many a Kenyon fan has said that that they have found sanctuary in her books throughout the years. Her fans also know about The Sanctuary, the fictional New Orleans bar in the Dark-Hunter world. Avid readers will often say that books provide a great retreat…that the release of a new book from a favorite author can make one’s day…that there’s nothing better than suspending disbelief and allowing oneself to sink into a storyline or a fantasy world.
We want to know, what’s your sanctuary? Perhaps it’s playing Rock Band on Xbox or settling into an episode of Star Trek? Perhaps you love spin class or heading to the park to sketch? Our very own Mona Leigh tells us how she finds sanctuary in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books.
Reading is, and always has been, my favorite escape. Without leaving home, I can tour the world, fall in love, fight anarchy, and become everything I’ve ever wanted to be. When I first stumbled across Sherrilyn’s books, I bought the first one thinking it would be a pleasant read and then I’d move on to another author. Not so. I finished it, put the other authors aside, and beat a path back to the bookstore where I bought ALL of her books. Not just the Dark Hunter books, but everything that had her name on it. The salesclerk was happily surprised.Her books are a wonderful escape. They’re well written, her use and knowledge of mythology is to be envied, and her characters are colorful, bold, and sexy. I mean, who doesn’t love a demon named Simi, who eats her enemies with hot sauce? Or a God/vampire who looks like sex-on-a stick?When it’s time to take a break from reading, music (usually loud rock), exercise, or walking through a quiet forest with only the birds and animals for company is what regenerates me, soul and body.

Live fast, fight hard and if you have to die then take as many of your enemies with you as you can. That is the Amazon credo and it was one Samia lived and died by. Now in contemporary New Orleans, the immortal Amazon warrior is about to learn that there’s a worse evil coming to slaughter mankind than she’s ever faced before.Shapeshifter Dev Peltier has stood guard at the front of Sanctuary for almost two hundred years and in that time, he’s seen it all. Or so he thought. Now their enemies have discovered a new source of power- one that makes a mockery of anything faced to date.The war is on and Dev and Sam are guarding ground zero. But in order to win, they will have to break the most cardinal of all rules and pray it doesn’t unravel the universe as we know it.
