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.

    "Loved This Story, although missed Fred Berman"

    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.

    Story
    "Oh Holter, I could just kiss you."
    If you could sum up Acheron in three words, what would they be?

    Tortured, kindhearted, hunk!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Acheron?

    wow, when he realized who he really was. Not that he had the powers of a god, but that he was valuable in spite of the god powers. Also when he was playing the video game with the kid and the other immortals.


    What about Holter Graham???s performance did you like?

    EXCELLENT! I wish all of her books in this series were narrated by him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.

    "Worth the wait!"
    Where does Acheron rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorite audio books and paranormal romance stories of all time.


    What other book might you compare Acheron to and why?

    Maybe Zadist from BDB series because both were tortured souls and ended up finding someone to love them. Both were long, sad stories with HEA endings and well worth the wait.


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

    Ash of course... But I always enjoy the Simi making appearances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes if that was possible, but it was way too long to listen to in one sitting... Plus I had to take tissue and emotional recovery breaks.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story. Hope Acheron continues to make appearances in future Dark Hunter books.

    "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.

    "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.
