In all honesty, listen to anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon and you'll be amazed.
I loved the narrator and his accents are great (even if they're incorrect). It makes it a lot easier to understand who's speaking. His rendition of Simi's voice is the most adorable thing ever.
Yes, The performance was great had me captivated and the whole story! There wasn't even one section that was dragging on.
Sticks and Ash
I absolutely love the performance of this book, just the different characters he brought out and made them sound so differently.
I've loved reading and writing for as far back as I can remember. I live in Ontario, Canada with my dear dog Joram (Maltese).
I find it hard to describe the experience that this book provides but I need to try. I have both the physical copy of this book as well as this audio. It was very much worth it to me to get both forms. I was anxious for this book to come out for a long time and it was worth the wait. As usual Sherrilyn Kenyon sent me on a roller-coaster ride emotionally and this time the ride was epic!! I was left with a great sense of guilt for having judged Styxx without knowing his story as I've heard that many other people did as well.
I've since read this book a couple extra times and I'm sure that I will give it at least one more perusal. I really enjoyed the narration for this book. Fred Berman did a great job and I don't have any complaints.
It's my opinion that everyone needs to experience this book!!!
There are parts of the book that are hard to get through but there are also amazing wonderful moments. I will probably be saying this for quite some time but I'll only say it once here: I LOVE this book!!!!!
the humor, it had me in giggling fits on public transit, and yes there were people gawking at me.
hard to say, Ash, Styxx, or perhaps Simi
do I have to pick just one?
pretty much the whole book included commentary from the listener "Self" in bouts of laughing, sadness, agitation, and rooting for the underdog(s)!
a must devour book, but listen to the series in order they are meant to synchronize and since it is a pretty big series they blend together better that way.
If you've listened to Ascheron, you must listen to Styxx. It completes the picture.
I compare it to Ascheron in it's complexity and story line.
I love his voice and how he delivers the funny parts.
The most poignant moments if when he is misunderstood during the times he meets up with Ascheron.
I have read all of the books in this series. Acheron was my favorite until Styxx.
Styxx is by far my favorite character of the series. I hope he will be in many more books in the future.
Fred Berman is great.
A reader of PNR, mysteries and suspense. But huge reader of PNR. I listen and read books.
no this book is too much like Acheron and really why so much detail and dwelling on so much childhood rape...
It is high up in all the books I've listened to.
I never liked Styxx after reading Acheron. Got to a point where I stopped liking Acheron as much as I did. Styxx has been through hell and back a few times.
He is good.
Yes. I normally listen while I work. I found myself listening at home and in the car.
Great book. Love the way we see the other side of the story. Perception is everything.
One thing that I find is disturbing in any book I read is the sexual abuse of not only children but of anyone. After reading Acheron, I felt sick. With Styxx, I had to fast forward a few times. I just couldnt stomach it anymore. We got the point with Acheron. Reading the books in order, I dont think we needed to hear all that graphic abuse again.
Oh My Goodness!!!
Styxx - his character - I don't know how he stayed to strong and forgiving. I know I would have a very difficult time if I had to endure what he did. I also would have killed long before he did and I am not a violent person.
I have always liked Fred as a Narrarator he does a great job with this series.
I definitely cried more than I did in Acheron's story. I had a different opinion of Styxx from his story. Boy was I wrong. Loved, loved, loved this story.
If you read Acheron and liked it - you really need to read this one - it will give you a whole new perspective on the relationship between these brothers. I also found myself really not liking their sister.
