Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon debuts a sweeping new epic saga sure to appeal to her millions of fans!
Deadmen tell their tales....
To catch evil, it takes evil. Enter Devyl Bane - an ancient dark warlord returned to the human realm as one of the most notorious pirates in the New World. A man of many secrets, Bane makes a pact with Thorn - an immortal charged with securing the worst creations the ancient gods ever released into our world. Those powers have been imprisoned for eons behind enchanted gates...gates that are beginning to buckle. At Thorn's behest, Bane takes command of a crew of Deadmen, and together they are humanity's last hope to restore the gates and return the damned to their hell realms.
But things are never so simple. And one of Bane's biggest problems is the ship they sail upon. For the Sea Witch isn't just a vessel; she's also a woman born of an ancient people he wronged and who in turn wronged him during a centuries-long war between their two races - a woman who is also sister to their primary target. Now Marcelina, the Sea Witch, must choose. Either she remains loyal to her evil sister and almost-extinct race against Bane and his cause, and watches humanity fall, or she puts faith in an enemy who has already betrayed her. Her people over the totality of humanity - let's hope Bane can sway her favor.
Deadmen Walking is the first historical fantasy title in New York Times best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's Deadman's Cross series. It is a tale of passion and loss, emotions that wound and heal...and ultimate redemption.

Mostly enjoyed the book. Only the Villain was weak

The main characters and crew were rich and engaging. I am happy that the author decided to place the timeline for this series in the past so her modern tales do not have to squeeze in another apocalypse. Besides who does not love Pirates and Voudou. My only complains are want more of the tales and back stories on each crew member... But I know they will li
kely get a book of their own. So I only need to be patient. My real complaint is that the big bad villain and battle to defeat her was weak and half assed. Seriously, the monsters attacking the ship along the journey, had greater battle skills and scenes.

A bit confusing, but getting back to old style.

A new spin off from the Dark Hunter series, going way back to the 1700’s. This time Thorne’s deadmen have risen to defeat the demons that have broken free from prison and are making havoc on the world. Of course, I liked it, it was a SK book after all. The two biggest downfalls were that there was so many new characters to get to know it was a bit overwhelming and the romance was a bit lacks. In fact, I wasn’t sure who the heroine was to be until about half way through the story, the second half gets a bit better. But the book has SK signature feel to the story and of course Holter Graham narrating so what’s not to like. There was a bit of a Pirates of the Caribbean feel to the overall story, but hey I liked that story too. This book was better than the last couple of books SK has put out and I think this series will get better as this world and characters are developed more.
