The narrator, the story line itself.
Hello...Acheron. His life struggle and happy ending.
Love the voices for each character. He does a wonderful job. He is the voice of Acheron.
A must listen.. Its not always pretty, but then again life never is. This mans struggle and his ability to overcome his past will bring emotions into your life you never know existed. This book was hard for me to listen to. I cried, I laughed and by the end I knew this would be my all-time favorite book
Not sure as much as i loved it some of harder parts of acherons lide was hard to read
The series wouldn't have been complete without this book
Exciting,strong and survivor
His childhood and how he survived the hardship that was delt to him. He accepted his situtation and made the best of them. When he did come into his power, he didn't use them to hurt those who had hurt him.
The voice, she read so that it seemed like you where right there.
The whole book moved me. I wanted to save Acheron and kick his human parents ass.
yes best book
the hole book
Beautiful and sad at the same time : )
I loved how this book explained in depth the inner workings of Acheron.
Simi, who doesn't love the little monster?
The moment Ach became the God he was meant to be
A MUST HAVE IN THE DARK HUNTER SERIES!
Heck yes, One of the best dark hunter books I've ever read and listened to
There are so many. When his sister and newphew die
I've read the book, however listening to it the charcters become vivid.
OMG! His father givin him to his uncle, his sister tryin to reach out to him. Him being prostitued, Finding out he was Appoylemi's son..need I go on
I've red this book about 5 times and listened to it numerous times as well. Each time it's like to first...LOVE IT
This book is awesome! I'm so glad something good happened to Ash, now if only something good could happen for nick. This is as far as i have gotten in the series but tomorrow I start on "One Silent Night".
His love for humanity, inspite of all the abuse he received.
Ash already held this strong leader role in my mind, without knowing how he came to be the God that he is. I was unprepared for what I thought would be a really long read, and having that "read" become a book that I just did not want to put down. There are so many memorable moments in this book, the way he was born and then abused as a child and blamed for that abuse, the way he was neglected by his human mother from birth, tortured by his human father and brother, feeling the shame of being a whore-never being able to show his face, while human, without everyone who saw him overwhelmingly desiring him, male or female. Him being gutted and thrown on the rocks like trash, such a horrible life for a babe whose mother, the Godess of destruction, had meant to be loved and cherished by his human parents. To have lived a human life as Acheron, and yet care so deeply for humanity that he would still protect the humans and not destroy them, makes this a truly great story. I would have destroyed this little rock and floated on off to my own little island. This book would make a great movie, especially blended with the other Dark Hunter books.
I love his voice inflections. You can actually feel the emotions in his voice. Great job.
Harry Potter was a great story, but Acheron is awe-inspiring.
I absolutely loved this book. I have bought the hard copy and the audible copy and have listened to this story approximately 9 or 10 times, total. I insisted both my daughters read it and several friends as well. It raises the hairs on my arms. Kenyon is absolutely my number one author. I have read all of her books, most multiple times. I absolutely love the way her characters interact and the way that she connects the dots to their relationships. She is a master story teller and I truly consider myself her biggest fan. Her books are awesome.
Love and Hate
It draws you in and makes you so so sad but then your so happy. Tears of sadness and tears of joy. Yes I admit this book made me cry, not ashamed to admit it.
He is the my favorite reader in this serise.
An Acheron quote "Everyone deserves to be loved"
I just loved it.
I read all the time, or nearly. I always have, I guess, since I was very young ... and now, getting older, more audio than any other medium.
Okay, I found this the most interesting of this series to date and Acheron was certainly the most ambitious of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books.
The story of Acheron's dreadful, abused childhood is indeed painful. The story is well told, the pace never slows. It tense, full of action, passion and as riveting as one could want, albeit I can understand why some people found the first half of it difficult to listen to. It is also very well narrated.
Here's MY problem: Acheron is 11,000 years old. He watches TV. He reads books. He uses computers. He had a hideously abusive childhood and in 11,000 years, he's never gotten past it? Really? I was an abused child and I know an awful lot of other adults who were abused children. Most of us HAVE gotten past it, with or without psychological help. You do work your way through this stuff and it didn't take me 11,000 years. So my question is ... seriously, did he never watch Law and Order: SVU? Read the newspapers and the scandals about abuse, or notice the enormous amount of talk from and about survivors of childhood abuse ... and the many ways to teach yourself to realize that being a victim was not YOUR fault but the fault of your abusers?
If you can accept that anyone with that many centuries of life has never dealt with the shame and guilt, then you won't have a problem with this otherwise cracking good story.
Maybe if I had hadn't been an abused child, it wouldn't bother me as much, but as it is, I had a problem with it ... and it was the central theme, the major issue of the main character and the entire book.
I simply couldn't believe it. If I can work my way through these issues in less than a human lifespan, surely so could he given so many millennium in which to accomplish it. Gods, shmods, go visit old Dr. Freud! Read a self help book, do something. Don't just sit around feeling victimized. Geez loueez.
For all that, it's a great page turner and as is typical of all her books, sexy with lots of action. Just ... well ... that little problem ... that totally unrealistic unresolved emotional baggage ... it just kept nagging at my brain all the way through.
Maybe it won't bother you. It did bother me, but I still enjoyed the read ... I just had to keep putting my rational mind to sleep so I could.
