I have waited for this book since the very first book and I truely enjoyed it.
I loved the first half of the book and it answered so many of my questions that I had oftened wondered while reading the other Dark Hunter books. The second half was very sweet and cute but it went a little fast for me but then maybe I was enjoying it so much I didn't want the book to end.

Ok, I admit when I first saw the book I was a little intimdated. That being said, once I started I simply could not put it down. When I did finished (reading it none stop)I wanted to cry that it was over. The absolute best book of the series!! I cried through the first half and cheered and laughed through the second half. The hero Ash, well WOW! The heroine was tender and strong. It goes in my keeper shelf along with all the others of this series. The only problem is, Ms. Kenyon how do you top Acheron?

I'm a new SK fan and have really enjoyed the dark-hunter series. This book really gives in-depth information as to what Acheron went thru growing up as well as growing into manhood and his godhood. I have to admit the beginning was really difficult to read and my heart really went out to the boy that he was and the man he turned into. Really explained a lot as to what made Ash what he is today. I have to say though that if you can't stomach reading of the abuse he went thru, you probably shouldn't pick it up.

I agree with other reviews that part 2 could have had more information. Though the book was very long, it really didn't take that long to read and was incredibly difficult to put down. The second part seemed to lack the important details that we found in the beginning. With that said, I still feel that this is the best dark hunter novel so far.

Finally, we learn about ASH! The book is broken into two parts: Acheron, the human and Ash, the leader of the Dark Hunters. The first part is awesome. The pain and torture of the soul of the man. The second part is a little slower and reads much like a trilogy novel (short amount of space to really make a point to the story) but it is so necessary in the sequence of events of this series.

Just finish... Oh my gods! The the first 3rd or so of the book brings you to tears. The hideous stuff that Ash when through growing up is enough to push you to commit murder to those that hurt him. They say that your past makes who you are today. Ash could have terned out a LOT differently then the Ash we know and love. Sooooooo happy to see him find his love, it was a long time coming, some 10,000 years coming. Never has a book made me wished it went on and never ended. I can't wait for the next. Although I am waating with bated breath, because the next book is Stryker's and well I can't see him changing sides any more then I can see Artemis bowing down and kissing Ash's feet. Sherri did say that Stryker's book is not what we are expecting... So her I am lying in wait.

It was a long book but a good one that kept me reading late into the night. There were parts that were difficult to read because of the subject matter, more so in the first portion of the book that focuses on Acheron's early life, but it gave you a greater apperciation and understanding of his personality and behaviors throughout all the other books. There were some moments in the second part that seemed a bit silly but I think the intensity and darkness of the first half contributed to that feeling. Some incidences required a bit more "suspension of disbelief" than othersin "part 2". But it was great to see a Happy ending for a favorite character.

not one of her best. The quality of Ms Kenyon's books is definitely decreasing. So Sad.

I love all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. However, Acheron's story left me confused and a little irritated. It is hard to believe that he becomes the strong and compassionate character that is presented to us in the previous books. Because his life begins so rough and cruel, he is weak and even at times pathetic. Then when the story is brought to the present day the romance part happens way to fast and leaves one wanting more. I agree that Acheron's story needed to be told, however maybe the romance side of his story could have been saved for another book and the development of his change in character examined a little bit more. In all if you are a fan of the Dark-Hunter series this book is a must read then. It does explain how Acheron becomes the head of the dark hunters.
