Kenyon has achieved literary standing with Acheron. She offers a light and a lesson to those who have suffered from abuses of their own, in their real lives. You can endure; you can triumph; you are worthy of love, no matter what someone else has forced upon you in your past.

In the words of Acheron, she also brings home a crucial lesson about power, manipulation and relationships: The second half of this novel brings the reader to present day, in the every day, human world.

For a time, anyway. Do not fear; we visit Kalosis, Katoteros, and Olympus before this world tour of torture and redemption is done. She still craves QVC shopping; ice cream with hot sauce; takes orders from Ash a little too literally; color codes her horns to her clothes; and protects her akri, as she calls Ash, with a devotion that is endearing and a little terrifying. Also, the ex-hunters who make appearances in this book enter into the same quick witted banter with Ash that all of the prior books are renowned for including.

Especially rewarding for long time fans are encounters with Julian and Talon. The heroine, Tory, is a delight to get to know through, as well. Saying anything else would be telling…. This book really is a powerhouse of a read. The only cautionary comment would have to be that if you have not read the prior books, this may not be the best place to begin.

The relationships and histories between the characters are critical to a full understanding, and a finer flavoring of this story. With Acheron, Ms. Kenyon proves once again that she truly is the Author Goddess, spinning tales that sweep you up into a world of dark desires, darker passions, and the enduring strength of the heart and the soul.

Truly, this book is the total package; it even tells you how everything ends. One Silent Night is currently scheduled for a November 4, release.

For myself, based on my experience with Acheron, when it comes out, November 4th will be a silent, but satisfying night for this Kenyon Minion. Author website: View all 12 comments. Aug 25, Michelle rated it did not like it Shelves: I hated most of this book. Book 1 Acheron's torturous human life: Good stuff. Artemis was always a bitch. Book 2 Present Day: Crap shit.

Did someone else write this book? I wasn't buying any of it, and I had many moments of extreme eye-rolling. I don't know what was worse, the horrible music and cheesey serenade in the club, or Acheron saying he wanted Tory on a platter.

It didn't seem like those were things he would do or say at all. View all 21 comments. Oct 24, Sophia Triad rated it it was amazing Shelves: Prison gates won't open up for me On these hands and knees I'm crawlin' Oh, I reach for you, well I'm terrified of these four walls These iron bars can't hold my soul in All I need is you, come please, I'm callin' And, oh, I scream for you Hurry, I'm fallin', I'm fallin' Show me what it's like To be the last one standing And teach me wrong from right And I'll show you what I can be Say it for me, say it to me And I'll leave this life behind me Say it if it's worth saving me Savin' Me Nickelback I think I have developed a major crush on Acheron after I read his book.

It is a very very long book, but it is not boring. It expands in two time periods roughly and it basically has six parts: Part 1: The Diary of Ryssa, Princess of Didymos. The story until Ryssa is given to Apollo. Part 3: Part 4: When Acheron meets Soteria Part 6: Epilogue and happily ever after During the first time period BC ; Acheron experienced hatred, abandonment, betrayal, fear, pain, humiliation, weakness, torture, rape, hunger and thirst.

Acheron was the kid that his parents did not want to know. He was abandoned in his uncle claws and his became his tsoulos, i. Acheron is a God, but during his childhood he was just a human. Only his eerie eyes proved his unique heritage. The problem is that as a human before his god powers were unlocked , Acheron was so weak and easy to hurt. His mortal parents were afraid of him, so he was sent far away to his uncle and they did not want to know anything about what his uncle was doing to him.

His sister Ryssa was the only one who loved him, but her love caused more trouble than good for poor Acheron. Goddess Artemis was his lover, his friend and then the worst manipulator and bitch. During the second time period present ; Acheron experiences pure love, commitment, unconditional sacrifice, trust and true friendship. His Soteria Tori will make him see the world in a different perspective.

She will cherish him, embrace him, feed him even when he is not hungry she is a Greek girl after all that needs to feed her loved ones until they burst , accept his past and acknowledge their common future. If the first time period represents the darkness and the desperation, the second time period represent the light and the hope.

I loved the book as a whole, but I would like to point out two things that I found weird: For someone who has been trained the art of seduction and all his life he was basically whoring himself; Acheron behaves far too innocently with Soteria in their intimate moments and there are many things that he had not tried before.

Acheron tries desperately to hide his old life and his negotiations with Artemis from the Dark Hunters who are also his friends. I mean, Why? Most of them have been raped at least once in their mortal life and all of them had been betrayed and humiliated more than once. I am sure they will understand when they find out about his sacrifices. Caution - this book is not for the faint of heart! I'm going to keep this short because there are no words to adequately describe this book.

It's one of the most emotional, gut wrenching, heartbreaking books I've ever read, but at the same time it was inspiring, uplifting and completely amazing. And I just can't find the words to do this book justice.

If you're a fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series, and who isn't? Acheron is a dream come true. We finally get the answers to so many ques Caution - this book is not for the faint of heart! We finally get the answers to so many questions and get into the heart of the true hero of the series. Acheron's story is so dark, so tragic and so gruesome, but our hero of heroes gets his happily ever after as well. In general, the books in this series have fairly intense, explicit sexual scenes, but those parts of the book can be skipped over without losing the story if you're more comfortable doing so.

I only mention this because in varying degrees, sex plays a big part in Acheron's story and some of it is emotionally, very dark. The bottom line - This is one of my absolute favorite books ever, and I can't tell you how many tissues I went through by the time I was done reading it.

I came away loving Ash even more than I had before, and with a deeper respect for him. View all 28 comments. The heroes: From the very first moment I read about Acheron I was in love.

The mysterious, sexy, brooding, loving goth Dark Hunter leader captured my heart from the first page! He is powerful but tries not to take advantage of his power even when people let him down left and right.

He takes care of those he loves and protects those he feels responsible for, he is always there when the others need him and never asks for sth in return.

You can't dislike him if you try. Although at some p The heroes: Although at some points I thought everything would be better if he killed one or two or a hundred people! P Tory Tbh Tory isn't what I had in mind for Acheron. I wanted a heroine a little more punk-ish. Maybe a badass with blades and scars someone like Tabitha but Tory had her own advantages. She was fearless, loyal and accepted Acheron just as he was.

In the beginning I didn't like her at all because she seemed like a judgemental bitch but she grew on me. I love the little demon girl She is a combination of wisdom and naivity, naughtiness and innocence and you really can't help liking her, just like her Akri.

Artemis is a royal bitch! She takes advantage of Acheron and hurts him in every opportunity, she is uncaring, heartless, selfish, cold. She thinks only of what she wants and she doesn't care who has to be hurt to get it.

So of course I'm a fan! The story. The story is written in two parts, the first one is Acheron's past Acheron's past was painful to read and I mean it, I felt pain in every page. I've read the book about 10 times and I can't bring myself to re-read the "past story". Acheron has suffered every way a human can suffer, he has been shamed every way a human can be shamed, every awful thing someone can think of has been done to him.

I really was impressed that with so much abuse he didn't become feral. In the present Acheron continues to put up with Artemis' abuse but she is the only one that dares hurt him and dare she does. I really don't get why he let even her but I guess if you kick someone one time too many Of course with the love and understanding of our heroine he'll get over the past This was kind of expected.

The "present" story was entertaining, funny and sweet but nothing really original. Generally the book was addictive. Do I think it could have been much better? Yes I definitely do Did I like it regardless? I loved it! View all 18 comments. Apr 23, Princess under cover rated it did not like it Shelves: It was LONG. I don't mind a long book as long as it keeps me riveted, and given all the convoluted back story around Acheron, I figured - it's gonna be a blast and I'm gonna gobble up every word.

Not so. The h was meh. She just wasn't anything special, and kind of random in terms of fated to be for Acheron.

He deserved someone truly special, but she was Maybe this book started it or helped the trend escalate - the whole sexual torture thing. I'm not a fan. I've read plenty of books with this plot device, but I just felt like it was delved into with too much detail here and turned me off. Plus, it's a departure from the vibe of the rest of the series to this point, so it felt kinda disjointed and out of place. Overall, I think it was my built-up expectations that made this a flop for me.

Never build up expectations, I've learned over the years! I have not read nor any desire to read another one of SK's books since. View all 9 comments. Oct 15, twinfish2 rated it did not like it Recommends it for: This book was awful. The first part of the book was just the same thing over and over. Ok yes I get it he was abused, everytime he trusted someone they betrayed him, yes I get it move on. My aunt,whom I was visiting, thought I was crazy.

Tory was weak, weak, weak,as a character and just not right for acheron at all. Well since he turned into a wimp in this book maybe they did make a good couple?

I think ma This book was awful.

I think maybe Acheron and Phury from J. In this class an A was not the grade to shoot for. I am done with buying the dark hunter series after this train wreck and her dream warrior books. View all 11 comments.


Loved it. Best in the series, hands down. It is an emotional read, but I think some of the reviews on here and on other boards are over doing it a bit when reviewing the first part. I think its scaring some fans away!

Truth is it is an emotional, bitter-sweet tortured hero story with an HEA. It's a captivating, enthralling, and non-stop page turning read. It is also funny and heart warming with some surprising twists that will make dark-hunter fans cheer! I think JR Wards books are equal in th Loved it. I think JR Wards books are equal in the emotional angst and tortured hero storyline, so dark-hunter fans should not hold off for fear of getting too emotional. Its an amazing survival story, and it truly is Kenyon's best piece of work.

I loved how she used first-person writing in several of the chapters, it really added so much. And the world building remained solid and true to what we learned it all her other books, but it was great to read the history of Acheron and the dark-hunters all in one book. Ash's heroine was great, and this romance felt much more believable than many of Kenyon's recent books.

This book will be a hard act for Kenyon to follow, but I am so glad to have it. Poor Acheron I cried at lest 4 times while reading this book and I am not a crier!! I love this book love that Acheron got his happy ending I loved Tory's personality. View all 8 comments. Jul 13, Grecia Robles rated it it was amazing Shelves: Me haces sentir completo y querido.

Feb 21, Kat Valentine rated it it was amazing. I reread this this weekend,and it still brings tears to my eyes what Acheron went though at the hands of people who were suppose to love and take care of him and the sick terrible things that the gods did to him also.

The first half of this book is a gut wrenched. But the second half is full of redemption and Acheron finding love and for the first time in his life knowing the touch of someone who did not want to hurt him in some way! Soteira is determined not to be put off by Acheron's bad ass act I reread this this weekend,and it still brings tears to my eyes what Acheron went though at the hands of people who were suppose to love and take care of him and the sick terrible things that the gods did to him also.

Acheron (Dark-Hunter, Book 12)

Soteira is determined not to be put off by Acheron's bad ass actions and soon these two very different people will both have their moment of happiness and forever!!!

Acheron has always been my favorite Kenyon character and I will always love this dark hunter!!!

It will break your heart into more pieces than possible and then put it back together better than it ever was to begin with. The first half of the book tells his back story. From birth to adulthood, what happened to him is heart wrenching. Unspeakably horrific. Incomparably violent.

Sickeningly abusive. Both physically and emotionally shattering. Acheron is without a doubt, THE most tortured character in the history of paranormal romance… or maybe just, ever. The second half of the book tell his present day story… and what leads to his beautiful happily-ever-after.

To have a character go from a place of the ultimate suffering, the ultimate humiliation, and the ultimate torment to a place of ultimate peace, happiness, healing, love and acceptance was heart-warming to an extreme. So beautiful. Having seen all the horrors that happened to him, it makes you appreciate every moment of joy as beyond precious.

If ever there was a character that deserved a happy ending, its Ash. For the complete reading order, click HERE. Its WAY worth it!! Here's how I see Ash and Tory: View all 63 comments. Jul 16, Julie jjmachshev rated it it was amazing Recommended to Julie jjmachshev by: I finished "Acheron" by Sherrilyn Kenyon in the wee hours of the morning. I was right.

Acheron's story was larger than life, just like Acheron himself. My emotions ran the gamut from despair to joy as I read his story. As others have commented, the first part of the book was almost painful to read. Each time I fi Whew. Each time I finished a chapter and thought, "Whew, now things will get better for him. I liked the fact that the author warned us in her note at the beginning of the book that the story would be painful.

Reading that she herself has firsthand knowledge of childhood abuse made Acheron's past that much more poignant. But by providing a happy ending for him, Kenyon really made this book a paean to all those who have experienced abuse and overcome. I won't take the time to retell any of his story.

Suffice to say that until the age of 21, Acheron's suffering was horrific and endless. My emotions are still reeling, hours after I finished with the happy ending. Will I reread this book? My first instinct is to say no Does that make this a great book? I don't know that either. But I DO know that those are just a few things that make this a book I will never forget.

Jan 18, Penny rated it really liked it Shelves: Rating Clarification: Acheron is an incredible book, the best of this series hands down. The only defect for me is that the second part is not as strong as the first one. Acheron is a memorable character.

He is part of every single book of this series, and finally getting to know this mysterious and essential character was a treat, fantastic. The book is divided in two very different parts: The first part is Ash's past, his life story. It was full of heart and soul, emotionally wrecking Rating Clarification: It was full of heart and soul, emotionally wrecking. I absolutely loved it, it was incredible.

However, the second part paled in comparison. After such an overwhelming and painful past, his present, his true love story, deserved to be much more than what he got.

It was truly disappointing to read just a normal romance next to such a strong first half. I wish his love story could have been memorable,like his life was, instead of just one of many in the Dark Hunter series.

He deserved EPIC. I'll keep reading the Dark Hunter series, but this book is going to be hard to top. View all 13 comments. I decided to read this because it has amazing ratings. I used a lot of the word 'too' This is not for me. All of the characters were too evil, except one. Yes, Acheron. Unfortunately I didn't like him either. While others were too cruel, he was too kind. I didn't care with everything else anymore because the characterization was already a major problem with this book.

Acheron was too tortured. Way too much. It was too sad. Every single character in this book was too weird view spoiler [I liked Acheron's sister. She was the only character who had my simpathy. But guess what? She was killed. Oh Blast! Whatever reason she had to save her son, to protect him, blah, blah, blah I just couldn't bear it.

Too much for me. There were also Acheron's father and his uncle. Both of them were the male version of cinderella's stepmother with the level of cruelty that beyond my imagination. I couldn't believe they were actually human being. Then we had Artemis. What in the world was going on with her? She kissed Acheron, slapped him, hurted him, made love to him, kissed him again, slapped him again, hurted him again, made love to him more and more and so on and again..

It had been one of many in Didymos that had lined the streets and it was an image of his twin brother Styxx. Ash almost came out of his seat. He forced himself to appear nonchalant even though inside he was terrified and angry. Tory looked up at the calm masculine voice that was so deep it commanded attention. It took her a second to realize who it belonged to. Pushing her glasses back on the bridge of her nose in a nervous habit, she cleared her throat.

He gave her a cocky grin that raised her hackles. We all know how data can be corrupted. What was the time span of the journal? She cringed at the question. Lie, Tory, lie. One finely arched brow peeked up over the rim of his black sunglasses, mocking her. He actually tsked at her. Kafieri, what we have is an archaeologist with a preconceived agenda looking to wow us into financing another vacation for her in the Mediterranean.

Tory felt her anger rising at his accusations. And even if you discount the journal, look at the other pieces of evidence. He scoffed. A building? Some pottery fragments? Greece is littered with that.

It could be nothing more than an undocumented provincial dialect. Worse, she felt the prick of tears behind her eyes.

A giousouroum in Athens? Tory panicked at the way the crowd was turning on her. At the look of disgust on Dr.

I have more. The Goth dick held up a komboloi that had the same exact image on it. Allen shook his head before he abandoned her too. The Goth man got up and retrieved his backpack from the floor. He loped down the stairs, over to her.

She started to leave, then stopped and reversed course before she raked him with a scathing glare that was only a pittance of the hatred she felt stinging her every molecule for this man. What was this? A game for you? Shits and giggles? Or was this nothing more than a fraternity prank? How dare you make a mockery of me.

Nor could he see her future. She was a complete blank slate for him. Not wanting to even contemplate what that might mean, Ash teleported himself from the room to his condo in New Orleans. Tory threw her pages into a garbage can on her way out the door. The laughter still rang in her ears. Her cousin Megeara had been right, she should have let Atlantis go. But both of her parents had given their lives up to this quest.

She snatched the rental car door open and threw her purse inside. Disgusted, she pulled her phone out and started the car. She called her best friend, Pam Gardner as she left the parking lot for Centennial Park and headed for her hotel room. Tory wiped at the tears as she stopped at a light.

Tory pulled out into traffic as she snarled. And she was. God, how she wished she could find him walking back to his dorm room so that she could mow him down. I swear to God in heaven if I ever see that man again, I will commit murder. She smiled at her friends.

She could always depend on them in any crisis. Kim and Pam were living proof that while a good friend would bail you out of jail, a best friend would be in jail alongside you. Original Publication Date: August 03, Acheron The hero Even though he was the youngest when he died, Acheron was the first Dark-Hunter ever appointed.

He is also the writer of the Dark-Hunter Creed and of the Code we abide by. Because of his Dark-Hunter age and the fact that he fought the Daimons alone for thousands of years, he is more phantom than real.

The Malachai are allowed to have children, but only one will inherit the powers of their father.
