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?

The beginning had me confused but the audio wad exceptional. I usually read Sherrilyn Kenyon but as I drove and commuted to and from work- I loved this audio!!!!
Love the narrator ... Story line was outstanding and over all it was a great listen ... Always kept me coming back to hear what happens next.
Ever since I read Acheron, I've been eagerly awaiting this book. Sherrilyn Kenyon never disappoints. Love her!
Styxx and archeron are the best book Kenyon wrote to me I can read or listen to both I can't wait to watch the series here is hoping for a movie. but if they do please don't leave out a thing .love dh novels
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!
couldn't put it down. it was one of the best following Acherons story read twice waiting for Son of No One thank you Ms. Kenyon for you wonderful novels they are adventurous, exciting, funny, suspenseful and so much more ***** stars again
My review contains SPOILERSWhat made Styxx so enjoyable for me was that everything came together in the end. Although Styxx was one of Kenyon's extremely emotional tormenting books, the relief of Acheron learning the truth was palpable. Seeing their relationship begin to heal gave me great joy. Although the love story of Bethany and Styxx left me shedding many tears, the story of Styxx and Acheron left me sobbing - literally.*I was almost afraid to read this book because some of the reviews warned that the story of Styxx was harder to read than Acheron. Honestly I almost skipped it. I am so glad that I did not skip reading Styxx. In my opinion the content of Styxx is no heavier than the content of Acheron. However, both books contain extreme content that are not for the light-hearted. However, those of us who are addicted to the Dark-Hunter series, attached to all the characters, and are expecting more than an "easy-to-read romance", will enjoy a heart-wrenching story with all of our tortured and beloved characters.
One of the most memorable moments of Styxx is after Acheron learns the truth of Styxx's past and he goes to see him in the desert. Acheron tries to show him a picture of his nephew and wants to apologize but doesn't know how. Styxx asks him to just leave. Styxx says he doesn't begrudge Acheron his happiness but he has just lost too much. When Acheron leaves and is walking away Styxx cries out a gut-wrenching, soul-tearing, emotionally-ragged bellow. The kind of soul cry that calls on Artemis for a chance to sell ones soul for revenge. I think that is the part where I started to sob. I read the novel over a week ago and I am still having flashbacks to that moment.
I have listened to Fred Berman on many of the dark-hunter novels and some of the league novels as well. I definitely enjoy his narration!
Yes and no. There were times at the beginning where I did have to put my kindle down and take a break from the agony of Styxx's early existence. However, Styxx's character as a human being kept me with him. I wanted to know that things were going to get better for him, and I believed in him as a human being (I know just a book - but books are my life).
Styxx is a book I will never forget. Thank you Sherrilyn Kenyon for your consistency throughout your novels. I am a huge fan and have enjoyed every Dark-hunter novel. I have just started the League series and I am now enjoying those books. I started with the Chronicles of Nick and I truly enjoy reading your books! I have read some reader reviews that the series has gotten repetitive and "boring". I completely disagree. I think your consistency is amazing and I love your writing. For readers who feel things are getting repetitive, I suggest taking a break from the DH series and reading something else. Kenyon continues to deliver excellent paranormal romance novels with a structure which I have enjoyed from the beginning. Every novel not only introduces us to new characters to love, but lets us know what is going on with characters we fell in love with long ago. I am completely enthralled with the world of Dark-hunters. Thank you again Kenyon for your consistency.
