Publisher's Summary

Sherrilyn Kenyon's most highly anticipated novel in the Dark-Hunter series since Acheron is here - the unforgettable story of Styxx, Acheron's twin brother and one of the most powerful beings on Earth. Just when you thought doomsday was over…
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. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.
The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now. She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her. But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer. Yet it's hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours - even when it's your own twin. And when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul?

Devastating Story about making assumptions.

WOW . I love the Dark Hunter series and have listened to each of the books too many times to count. So I felt I had a pretty good grasp on all of the characters. The story of Styxx is so devastating that I was depressed. It shook me and made me absolutely nauseated about the damage of making assumptions concerning other people’s reality. I had to turn off the audio-book calm down and reflect on my own life and the relationships I have with those people in my life. I know these are just fictional characters in a story but I was so shook up by the view point I had towards Styxx verses what his reality actually was that I cried and cringed through the whole thing. Sherrilyn Kenyon did a wonderful job at showing us that there can truly be three sides to every story …..Yours …….theirs…. and …..the truth which lies somewhere in between. I think she did a wonderful job at creating a story with a moral theme we can take away with us in our everyday lives. To rephrase a quote by Urian …”Good job sister…..good job!

Much harder to read than Acheron

Damn this was hard to read, but I couldn't put it down. Acheron has always been my favorite character in the Dark Hunter series and I looked forward to reading a book about his life, but I never thought it would be so heart wrenching, it was so difficult to read. But, at least the second half was positive and fun. I felt his romance with Tory was touching and believable and I was happy for him by the end of the book. But, good grief, I can't say that about poor Styxx. While I was reading Acheron, I though he would have done better without his "loving" sister Rissa. She was an idiot who cause him so much trouble. But I was really take aback by her truly horrendous treatment of Styxx. What a mean spirited harpy.

Ninety percent of this book was one long gut wrench that never let up. After wading thru hours and hours of his unending pain and suffering, the ending seemed too rushed, too short. Yes, it was interesting, the way everything came together, very clever. But, I needed more redemption and happiness than the bone Ms. Kenyon tossed us at the end. I'm glad I read it, but I won't read it again.
