My favorite character and book in the series so far!! Excellent story and performance! I can't wait for the next story! Hopefully we will get more Ash and Styxx!
I am glad I got this book because it completely told the story of Acheron and his brother Styxx. I found that I even went to bed with the earphones in so that I would not miss a word. I will definitely listen to it again.
After Acheron I was convinced that Styxx was an evil bastard, and then I cried for him all the way till the end!
The tent when Acheron was watching Styxx and realized how wrong he was about his brother.
He's great! Can defiantly make you feel there's dozens of characters speaking. He pulls off sassy level "expert!"
GET A BOX OF TISSUES!
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Styxx Styxx Styxx.. Had no Idea of his side of events when I red the Acheron book... This book is so emotional, when you listen to Styxx's story you will be shocked of how it was and for how long it was like that... Sherrilyn did a good job of hiding his story , I had no idea....
So many events are in this book... and so many after and after-after events.. I can see why its so far down the line in this series, so many things that happened in previous books are included here too.. .And oh dear how many surprises you get here, prepare for them.
Absolutely loved this addition, and finally I'm where everyone else is at in this series, took me a while to get here as I have started this series recently.
Now will wait and see what will come up next.
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!!!!!
A good reminder that you shouldn't judge anyone until you have walked a mile in their shoes. And how is it that one being can suffer so much. Just when you think the worst has happened...BOOM! I started this series by listening to Acheron. That helped tremendously while listening to the series from the beginning. Stixx' s story over-laps a lot with Acheron' s and makes you start questioning just how bad-ass is Acheron? Of course Ash is bad, but you'll look at Stixx in a whole new light and with a lot more respect.
Styxx ranks #2, only because Acheron is my #1 favorite!! A lot of people complained about the content of the story, but I wasn't worried about it because there was a point the author was trying to make...and she really made it.
I would compare it to Acheron simply because it's the story of his twin brother, and you really learn how much the two's live's were actually a lot alike.
Fred Berman is a great story teller. He isi simply amazing at creating the voices of the many charecters inthe story and puts so much emotion into them that it's a pleasure to listen to and follow the story with interest.
It definitely was, if not for having to work, I would have.
I actually read this book after listening to Acheron. I felt that I would get the full effect of the story by purchasing the audio book, and I was right. I only wish that Fred Berman had actually done both Styxx and Acheron...he's awesome!!! Only complaint was that there were a few contradictions with the sister, and I didn't like the way Acheron was made to seem cold in certain respects but overall, I loved this book!!
This was an excellent book and while I was eager to listen to what happened next, the subject matter was sometimes very difficult to listen to. Overall, I am glad she wrote Styxx's story, I like many others had really disliked him until this story. Looking forward to the next Dark Hunter book!

I have not read the print version.
Fred Berman brings an extremely volitile attitude, others may not have envisioned, without his help. The attitude will tap into deeply emotional support for the underdog. Without his help, many readers might give up the story before reaching the ending.
The story taps deep compassion of the reader, and even strengthens a solid moral compass.
This story is captivating and I listened to it for two to three hours at a time. I hated to stop, and anxiously took every opportunity available, to return to the story. Styxx is a man who was cursed, and suffered, at the pleasure of the gods.This lengthy mythological story, is told as a continuous mini-series. I loved it.
