Now released for the first time as a standalone audiobook, House of the Rising Son, previously a part of the Dark Bites story collection from number-one New York Times best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon.
The eldest son in a family of three boys, Aricles had no desire to be a soldier, even though his fighting skills were among the best in the world. He was more than content on his small Atlantean farm, living a quiet, uneventful life. But when his brother is determined to don a soldier's uniform, Aricles joins him with a promise to their father to bring his brother home in one piece. What he never counts on is how much their new lives will forever change them or what the risk of a forbidden love will ultimately cost him.

Fred Berman's performance reading this book was great, he was able to distinguish the characters.
I was kept in suspense and anticipation with each chapter.
Another wonderful written book by Sherrilyn Kenyon, after all these years reading her books, I do no think I have ever read or listened to a bad one as of yet.
Magical , a love story. I had read Styx which I loved. Nice to see how it all began.
Sherrilyn has a way of transporting you into another place and time
Author - "In Plain English
This book is great as it sets the foundation for her Styxx book. It now would serve the readers who did not read her novels to first read this then the Styxx book
Ancient wars and gods
Aricles answers Bathymaas' questions about becoming aroused.
Bathymaas not renouncing Aricles when she learns the truth of Apollo's attack on Aricles.
The final scene when baby Bethany is named.
This story was part of the book Styxx and also appeared in the anthology Dark Bites. It was good then, and it's good now.
Same Exact Story.... that was told in Styxx and there were no additional details that added to the story lines of either current Dark Hunter or Chronicles of Nick storylines. I have read and listened to all of the DH and CON books, there are alway "breadcrumbs" that add to the storyline and move it forward....not this time
Chronicles of Nick
Yes, I love the DH series
The additional details that were provided in this book did not need to be addressed in an entire book. Neither the current Dark Hunter storyline nor Chronicles of Nick storylines were advanced in this book. Also the bonus chapter of this book was a complete repeat of a section in Styxx and then it was covered in Chapter X of this current book, House of the Rising Sun. So I have heard text of the bonus chapter 3 times. Maybe it's important, but I can't see how.
