Publisher's Summary

Sherrilyn Kenyon's most highly anticipated novel in the Dark-Hunter series since Acheron is here - the unforgettable story of Styxx, Acheron's twin brother and one of the most powerful beings on Earth. Just when you thought doomsday was over…

Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now. She owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. He will join their fellow gods in hell and nothing is going to stop her. But things are never what they seem, and Acheron is no longer the last of his line. Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to trust each other or more will suffer. Yet it's hard to risk your own life for someone who once tried to take yours - even when it's your own twin. And when loyalties are skewed and no one can be trusted, not even yourself, how do you find a way back from the darkness that wants to consume the entire world? One that wants to start by devouring your very soul?

    "Rethink everything you believed about Stixx"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "The Best Narration Ever!!!"
    Where does Styxx rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Styxx to and why?

    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.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    It definitely was, if not for having to work, I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    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!!

    "Excellent addition to the series!"

    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!

    Story
    "A gods love/hate/persecute a human tale."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Styxx to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    What does Fred Berman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Utterly LOVED it!!"

    After listening to Acheron I couldn't imagine how Sherrilyn could possibly make Styxx a redeemable character but she certainly did. Acheron and Styxx are now my two favorite books of hers...I really recommend them and Fred Berman did such a wonderful job on both!

    Story
    "Enjoyed it but started to get a little annoyed...."

    With Styxx at a point. It just wanted to get him to stop brooding and actually lash out at Archeron and others. Nonetheless, it was a good story, kind of tarnished Archeron's squeaky good guy image a little which was surprising and added more depth to the story.

    "Overall, An excellent tale...."
    What made the experience of listening to Styxx the most enjoyable?

    In- depth perspective into the protagonist, and the supporting subjects, made this one of the few audiobooks I dreaded putting down ( in other words- pausing).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Styxx?

    Any and all in which he chose forgiveness over wrath. A human being overcoming the most basic of our instincts. Powerful and moving..


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    True to the character and tone of the novel.

    Story
    "Absolutely Shocked"
    Would you listen to Styxx again? Why?

    Immediately after listening to Styxx, I listened to Acheron again. The Dark Hunter series is by far my favorite series. Like most people, Acheron has been my favorite character....until now. I was stunned at how quickly Styxx became my new favorite hero. After reading both Styxx and Acheron's stories, I am listening to Styxx again and I love it just as much as I did the first time.


    What other book might you compare Styxx to and why?

    Acheron's of course, but also Zarek's story in Dance with the Devil. Like Zarek, Styxx was greatly misunderstood by all who knew him.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    I thought Fred Berman did a wonderful job. His wide range of accents was both comical and moving.
