It has shades of Cinderella but so much depth and angst and power. An amazing story of endurance and survival against bitter odds.
I enjoyed listening to this book and couldn't seem to stop. I even missed sleep because I didn't want to stop listening. It is a must listen. I loved that this book was so long and wish Kenyon's other Dark Hunter books were longer. Graham does a great job portraying the characters and performing the story. The wrong narrator can really destroy a story & make it unbearable to listen to regardless of how wonderful the book may be. Graham does a remarkable job and makes this wonderful book irresistible to stop listening.
I like Graham's performance of this series the most. He does Semi the BEST!
I would only read another book from this series if I had my memory wiped totally. Even with a lobotomy, I truly believe I would, with an emotionless expression, put that book down and walk across the busiest street I could find, hoping to end it all.
I wish I had read a few reviews, and considered that the female raters probably were 15 years of age, and enjoyed the soft porn aspect of this book. The printed description was not evident in my first 2 hours of listening. I found the material "painful" to listen to. I kept skipping forward, chapter by chapter, looking for some type of plot evolution... didn't find it. Please read Victor's review. I couldn't have said it better. I threw away $22.00. I just finished a Brandon Sanderson book, which on a scale of 1 - 10 was "10"; Acheron was proof that hype will make someone money, every time. Now that I think about it, the target audience for this material is 11 year old females. And the narrator was part (but only 10%) of the problem. There was nothing redeeming about this production.
The history of it all
Ash for as powerful as he is he is modest,polite,has good manners. old fashioned,and very romantic...plus I love the SIMI...........
had all kinds of reactions to it. its a kind of series that touches all your emotions
read the series, I thought it even better than christine feehans dark series. read in the order the athur put it in for the best read. acheron is not book 1 its in the middle of the series.please start fromm book 1
Yes and in fact I have. This was truly the best book in the series so far. The first time around I couldn't stop listening and felt as if I got through it too fast so the second time I listened I took my time and paid more attention.
*Spoiler* I loved it when Tory threatened Artemis and put her in her place that was AWESOME!!!
I really wished Fred Berman would have done the narration for this book. I absolutely LOVE him and he does an amazing job. Holter Graham is ok and has a nice voice, I just would have preferred Fred for this one.
Acheron.....may the truth be told
This was my favorite book in the Dark-Hunter series thus far. To finally find out the truth of Ash and his past and why he puts up with Artemis was priceless. To be honest listening to the first half of this book was hard but to see how he had overcome everything and could still be so caring and thoughtful of others after everything he had been through is just amazing. Honestly, I could listen to this book over and over and never get tired of it!!
Narration was Excellent. Very easy to listen too.
Now that I have finished the Book I can now say it was a good story. However I nearly stopped listening quite a number of times, through the first 2/3 of the book. It was the last 1/3 of the book which saved it. I will be listening to any of the other books in this series when they become available on audio in Australia. I was difficult listening to sooooo much heart break. I was temped to fast forward to the present day in the book, but was concerned that I might have missed too much in the storyline. I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh.Happy Reading
Use to love to read until audible... now love to listen
I really really love this story. Must have.
I can't its a stand alone
He has the best voice
I am an avid fan of audible. I have over 150 titles in my library. Kersey Cole is one of my favs
His caring heart toward others. He was not bitter towards humans.
When Ash found true love and got the goddess off of his back.
When Ash got drunk on sprite and gave his love interest a tour .
There were some tear jerking scenes.
Addicted to Audio Books !
I so love the series when Fred Berman is narrator, although Holter Graham did ok in this book, the previous books in the series that Holter Graham read were not good, I couldnt even Listen to them but this book he did well. I have really enjoyed this series I was a little lost because I was unable to listen to the books not Narrated by Fred Berman so I missed some chunks of important Information but I was still able to enjoy this book very much. Acheron is my favorite of the whole series so this is my favorite one of all. Worth listening to if you liked the previous books in the series.
Yes - over and over again so that I can pick up what I missed the first time.
The inner strength of Acheron
