Publisher's Summary

Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. His human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind.

Only it was never that simple. For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he never wants revealed - until a lone woman who refuses to be intimidated by him threatens his very existence.

Now his survival, and ours, hinges on hers, and old enemies reawaken and unite to kill them both. War has never been more deadly...or more fun.

Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

    Story
    "All Around Enjoyment"
    Where does Acheron rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have not listened to very many yet, but out of the four, I think this is the best one. There are no bad accents or over the top characterizations by the narrator. He did a very good job over all and you'll get wrapped up in the story very quickly.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Obviously, Acheron is our hero. Since he plays such a large part in the Dark Hunter series, I needed to know where he came from!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The moment Acheron realizes he has his god powers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    That which does not kill you makes you stronger.


    Any additional comments?

    Even if you have never read any of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, you will enjoy the majesty of this story.

    Story
    "A great combination of myth and modern times"

    Acheron: Dark-Hunter, Book 11 was my first introduction into the strange and captivating world of Dark-Hunters and the literary work of Sherrilyn Kenyon. What a pleasure and a find it was. I have listened to this book at least three times and have since acquired an exstive collection of both audio and printed books by Sherrilyn Kenyon. She has clearly captured the mythos of Roman, Greek and Celtic mythology. I love the way she blends the old with mythology with our modern day. Not only is this book spell-binding but her other dark-hunters book are as well. Much like another of my favorite authors, JK Rowling, Sherrilyn Kenyon has captured a world where I would love to live. And I wouldn't mind having any dark hunter share my bed too.

    Story
    "heartfelt and unforgettable"

    The atrocities and triumphs of Acheron's life make him one of the greatest book heroes I have ever listened to. You can listen to this book as a standalone, but I promise you the search for what Acheron does with his life is never ending. I have listen to or read most of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, in this relentless search. I have come to love, admire and sometimes hate most of the rich and vibrant characters in these books.

    "ACHERON"

    Holter Graham brought the character to life. Sherrilyn, all I can say is never stop writing. I love every book and between Holter Graham and Fred Burman, the world is anew.

    "Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    I love the Dark Hunters and would recommend any of them, but I was glad to finally get to Acheron's story. I will warn that the first part is heart breaking, but necesary to understand Acheron's character. Tory is a perfect match for Acheron. Holter Graham is excellent. Don't miss any of these books

    "your heart really breaks for Asheron"

    I have read/listended to all the books to this point and Acheron is by far my favorite caracter! At some points his story was very hard to listen to, but you know he comes out of it stronger. I love the history/mytholgy of these books.

    "I cried, laughed and my heart sang"

    Never read anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon before, so since this was the only available audible by her in this country I thought it would be good to listen to see if her books would be any good, and I absolutely loved it! I totally recommend buying this book. It’s long, however worth the extra hours, I cried, laughed and my heart sang. I continue to listen to my favourite parts of the book even though I have heard it over and over again. I have even got the book to add to my library. 5 stars

    "The best of the series!"

    It was worth the build up from the previous books (some of which are not in audio format and one that was abridged and you should get the book). The narration could have been a little better but the book more than made up for it. I absolutely loved this one!

    "Torn in half..."

    ...and I don't mean emotionally. The book is divided in 2 parts that are so far apart in style as day and night, which is why I'm giving it 3 stars.

    The first part contains mortal Acheron's story and is so dark and dreary I had to stop listening at times. Although Kenyon has presented tormented characters before (Dance with the Devil and Born of Night come to mind), I felt she took the torture too far this time. Indeed, I might even say the author was taking out all her sadistic tendencies on her main character to such extent as to become utterly ridiculous. I understand that more often than not the audience tends to feel for the troubled hero, but in this case I found myself becoming anesthetized by what I was listening. Even so, this part of the story sheds light on the leader of the Dark-Hunters and as such I believe it might be enjoyed by hardcore fans.

    What I really loved though was the second part of the story; in fact, I bookmarked it and read it all over again as soon as it was finished! The tone is much lighter while the structure is closer to the rest of the Dark-Hunter books. This is where you can find the jolts and frissons that are so common in the series.

    In conclusion, if you're a Dark-Hunter fan, then this is definitely a must read. However, I can safely say that, although I've reread several of Kenyon's books, I'll be happy if I never again read a single paragraph from the first half of this story.

    "The answers to Why Acheron is the way he is!"

    I am new to the series, and have read one after another over the past couple of weeks. Acheron is intense, heartbreaking, and necessary to help understand why he does the things he does. Tortured soul, compassionate in spite of all his tortures. Amazing.
