Finally readers of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series are rewarded with Acheron's story. Long awaited by fans, including me, I couldn't wait to see how it turned out. The first part of the book deals with his past and childhood. It's not an easy read but it explains everything and is well written. Unfortunately, the second half of the book was not as captivating for me. When we move into present day and the story focuses on the romance, it shifts tone completely and becomes more of an airy, light read typical of the genre. I found it hard to believe Acheron overcame his.

Eleven thousand years ago, a god was born  . and it made me into a die-hard fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon (who up to this time, I had never heard of or knew about her books). I decided to read this book again, before getting started on Styxx pulled at my emotions all over again.

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother’s side. They’ve spent more centuries going at each other’s throats than protecting their backs.

The world of Acheron had been entirely different Thanks for reading the books on GrayCity.

St. Martins released a free booklet with Sins of the Night. It contained a glossary, Q&A and short story. Please note that those items will be in the back of Wren's book (Unleash the Night) that will be released in December. In the meantime, here is the short story that appeared in it. Second Chances. The world of Acheron had been entirely different. It had been steeped in loneliness and pain, and decorated with terror. It was a world he’d never dreamed existed. Thanks for reading the books on GrayCity.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter books are the perfect paranormal blend of very tortured heroes (literally and figuratively), strong heroines, engaging plot, intricate mythology, heart touching moment, steamy love scenes, some of the funniest moments you will ever read in a book, and the absolute sweetest HEAs. I really love how she also clearly had an overall story arc from page one. The Dark Hunter books have the best character development, world building, story arcs, and writing of any PNR series out there. Each book focuses on one Dark Hunter, Were Hunter or Dream Hunter as they.

The first part of this book is what makes me reread it over and over again. Then after reading the first part you need part 2 to eliminate the emotional rollercoaster of pain and sorrow that was ash's life. Kenyon really out did herself with this one. It was the first book I ever read from her and led me down the dark hunter series with great expectations that were always met. While the other books are great none venture or even come close to the darkness of Acheron.
I recommend you go to a nice quiet spot and allow Acheron to take you back 11000 years to his life as a human.
Grab some tissues and brace yourself as you're immediately thrown into a powerful story of loss,abuse, misery, regret,and love.
I have read only two other books in the Dark-Hunter series. It is a sad fact, and even though I always enjoy these books, I have to take them in small, expended period doses. I did know of Acheron. I'm not that out of the series, but I know I didn't know him as well as others that read this book. The only reason I'm mentioning this is because I feel like I am part of the small percentage that went into reading Acheron's story with little expectations. I feel like this makes my take on the book a little different than others.

First off, I liked the first half of the book more than the second half. The first half is especially dark, depressing, interesting, and emotional. I felt like the first part was sort of beautiful for that. I really got to understand Acheron. I was able to read all those different parts of his life and let it all sink in. My favorite part was when I read his story through his sister's diary. That was a great way to start off telling his life's story. His sister was a good character for the book. She always wanted better for him, and it was a little frustrating that it took him so long to understand that, but I guess it made her frustration with him so relatable.

My only complaint about his sister is that too often she was the cause of him getting hurt. She would see him or try to help him, and each time he got punished. I liked her, but I also wanted to smack her for screwing things up for him. I think this relates to my major issue with the first part. Now I rarely complain about the length of a book (or in this case, a part), but things really dragged on. I felt like the author repeated a punishment or misunderstanding or Acheron's self-loathing too much. Yes, each hurtful scene was significant, but when it got to be that Artimis was healing him seconds after a punishment, I started to wonder what the point was of describing Acheron's pain when in only moments it was going to be relieved. I want to make it clear that the painful scenes were really moving. They were terrible to read and imagine, and watching Acheron's perseverance (even if his perseverance was not his desire) really connected me to him. I only wish that the first half could have been cut back a bit by eliminating some accidents or punishments that affected Acheron. I understood pretty quickly that his life sucked, I didn't need the meaning to be hammered into me page after page. It started meaning less to me after a while.

I wanted to kick Artimis' butt. I had a hard time understanding how Acheron fell for her, then hated her, then forgave her, then finally got over her. It was like a bad rollercoaster ride between these two. I was sick of them together by the end. I think the author had a challenge by creating love between these two when any reader of the series knew what happens to them later. I tried to understand Artimis, but I just plain didn't like her, and I hated how important she became to Acheron's story.

So there were things I liked and disliked about the first part. There were more likes than dislikes, of course. The first half is deep and detailed. Unfortunately, it may have dragged on just a tad too much. The punishment scenes that were meaningful in the beginning became less interesting by the end. It just got to be too much when I already got the point. Also, Artimis...ugh. I know she was necessary, but she just ruined my interest in the story more than once.

On to the second half. I won't get into it as much as the first half because I have less to say. There was a whole different tone for this part. It almost feels like it was written by a different author. I think the first half set up so many expectations for the second half that it simply couldn't compete. The deep, meaningful stuff I loved about the first half was gone and replaced with bland humor, unrealistic love, and something boring.

I had a hard time liking Tory. She was a little too weird for me, yet she had no characteristics that really stood out. I just didn't see her as being Acheron's girl. I didn't like her friends, she seemed too immature, and her words never sounded much different than Artimis'. It was disappointing.

The romance went way too fast, and it wasn't very sexy. Acheron and Tory seemed awkward together, like two puzzle pieces that don't fit. They weren't terrible, but chemistry was missing. However, their story did keep me interested enough to stay up way past my bedtime. I guess I kept hoping for that spark. Instead of flames, they only created warm cinders.

Overall, I do not regret getting this book. Some scenes were amazing (and I say that for both halves). Acheron turned out to be an interesting, sad character. That sadness did not carry over well to the second half though. But I've stated my complaints, so I'll just finish by saying that I wasn't disappointed by this book, but only because I had no expectations. I do not think I would have set up his story like this, but I am not an author, and even if I was I doubt my version could be as good as this one.
** spoiler alert ** EXCELLENT READ!!!! Long but so worth it - Sherrilyn Kenyon is brilliant in writing Acheron's story. This book brought out all kinds of emotions all throughout reading this book, sadness, happiness, madness, revengeful, hatefulness, excitement, and over joy-ness when it came time to kick some ass.

All through this series I have loved Acheron, now I love him even more after reading this book. This book told the story of how Acheron was conceived into the human world and how he was shunned from the moment he was born. It told of the cruelty that was done to him as they turned him into a slave whore and It tells how he becomes into his Godhood on his 21st birthday.

Acheron - the God Apostolos, Harbinger and son of Apollymi the Destroyer - his will is the will of the Universe and the final fate of all.

After reading the first part of this book, I was so glad Apollymi took her wrath out and killed Acheron's father and everyone of them gods that wanted him dead and most of all, I was like cheering her on when she took out Acheron's human father and all the people who lived in that kingdom.

I hated Artemis for her two faced ways, she is such a bee-otch. I couldn't believe that she could say she loved Acheron and then stand by and watch her brother Apollo kill and gut him right in front of her.

I loved Tory from the beginning, I loved how she wasn't ashamed of Acheron because of his past and that she loved him for who and what he was no matter the baggage. I love the part when Acheron is playing the guitar in Sanctuary and dedicates and sings a song to her and then afterwards goes to her and kisses her - I totally melted in Awe.

Also the reason everyone who looks at Acheron and desires him is because on the day that Acheron was born in the human realm, the midwife who delivered him happen to be Apollymi's sister Epithymia (God of Desire) and she touched him and was the main reason he was treated like he was.

I have great respect for Apollymi even though she is the Goddess of Destruction, my heart went out to her as a mother who would do anything for her child. You know she really loved Acheron when she took Tory's soul after Tory was killed and then turned around and offered a way for her to remain with Acheron by giving her part of her powers and sending her back to her body so she could feed from Acheron and become vampire like Acheron and at the same time free Acheron from Artemis hold. I was like hell yeah.

I loved how all the Dark Hunters stood behind Acheron to help him like Torys friends. And best of all, the wedding at the end was precious.

However, now I'm curious to find out what will happen to Nick and how Artemis will screw him over.
I couldn't wait for the paperback and bought the (heavy!!!) hardcover. I plan to read the paperback version again, but I don't want to cry again, so I'll just skip the first half. I like the fact that Acheron found Tory. Some people may think he should have gotten some tough bimbo or strong goddess, but what he needed was someone who looked at the real "him" and didn't maul him in the process. Tory is smart, funny and turns out to be stronger than she seems. Acheron just needs the peace that he longed for and was taken from him when he finally got it. Tory is the grounding force for a life that could so easily end the world.
