Son of No One and Kenyon's Big "Revelations"

I have been a fan of Ms Kenyon for over ten years. She is my all time favorite author. There is a big BUT here. This book was an absolute FLOP to me.

Description from
In Son of No One, next in the blockbuster The Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, it’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted-out hoopty running. But when something truly evil is released into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcements.

From the moment Josette meets Cadegan, she knows something about him isn’t quite right.  Mysterious and armed with lethal sarcasm, he seems a lot older than his age. 

Centuries ago, Cadegan was viciously betrayed into an immortal prison by the only person he’d ever trusted and was cast into an immortal prison. Forced against his will to do good, he hates everything in life. All he wants is a way out. But for the damned there is only eternal suffering. And yet there is something about Josette that intrigues him. Something he can’t seem to fight and the last time he felt this way about a woman, it cost him everything. 

He knows he has to stay away from her, but the unleashed demon is hell-bent on consuming her soul. If one more innocent is taken, he will be sent back to an unimaginable prison that makes his current hell look like paradise. But how can he keep her safe when his being with her is the greatest threat of all?

Josette "taking a job with a local paranormal group" never actually happens. She goes to this big haunted house with her family, but the camera doesn't work. Next thing ya know, she is falling through a mirror into another realm, and is rescued by a big dude in a robe. They only have a certain amount of time to find a dragon key and get her back to her own world. Seriously, within 5 pages these two are "in love". 

The best part of the book is about halfway in where, after doing the "deed", Cadegan and Josette accidently switch bodies. For about three pages here I laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair. 

Now, for all of the big "Revelations" that were supposed to happen, maybe I missed them all. I saw very little that I would call a "Big Revelation!" . Maybe next year, with the Year of the Dragons, which everyone knows I absolutely adore dragons, will be different, but honestly, this one was one of the worst books in the series.

OMG I am so sorry. I'm so mean, and I'm sorry but we are supposed to leave honest reviews, right? Well, there is is. I'm sorry if I offended anyone but that is how I feel. I'll go away now. Because I hate writing bad reviews and now I feel bad. Tata...
