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.

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?

    Story
    "true example of TMI"

    The story line was great as always and Sherrilyn is a fantastic writer but her stories are getting to the point of vulgar and way too much TMI. I really could have done without the overwhelming examples and explicit details of men raping other men. It would have been much better to leave some things to the imagination. She is very good and would love to read more of her books but I won't be reading anymore like these which disappoints me at the same time since I like the series. It's books like this that reinforces my belief that books need every bit of the ratings that movies and magazines do.

    "Made me Love Styxx"

    This story is outstanding but the only section I've listener to over and over and over is the last 6 hours. The reader does an excellent job! One learns more about Urian and Stixx as well as more about Acheron (who frankly come off a little mean spirited).

    Story
    "Tortured soul - emotionally wrenching"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Love the series. Excellent use of various perspectives on the same events. Very graphic.


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

    Excellent narrator. Prefer Holter Graham but Fred Nailed Simi


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

    No. Too intense.

    Story
    "I'm so disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Fred Berman?

    I am so disappointed in this book! I was only able to listen approx. 1/2 of part one, none of 2 or 3 and most of 4. I get that we are to really feel Styxx's angst but I was beat over the head with it until I just couldn't stand it anymore. I am not a moron, I understand I was supposed to feel his unrelenting pain and disappointment, I didn't need hours upon hours of it!
    I usually enjoy Ms. Kenyon's books and I will try another although my tolerance will be at an all time low.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sherrilyn Kenyon before, how does this one compare?

    This book is very low on my list of favorites, in fact I am going to try to return it.


    What didn’t you like about Fred Berman’s performance?

    There were times I was distracted by his attempts at different voices although to be fair....it could have been attributed to my dislike of the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Styxx?

    Pretty much all of it, certainly the repetitive beatings and rapes.

    Story
    "Best Dark Hunter novel in the series"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Styxx. The recasting of his persona was brilliant and believable.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    Consistent and reflecting the emotion I believed was critical to getting the most out of the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, but didn't make me laugh or cry, but did wrench my gut several times. The portions of scenes that would have been unbearable to dissect word for word were effectively left to my imagination. Thankfully.


    Any additional comments?

    I only write reviews of books I consider outstanding. I have listened to well over one hundred and fifty books. This is my second review.

    Story
    "This was brutal."

    I listen to over 200 books a year and this is the first I needed moral support to read. After the first 2 hours I was already going crazy. If you thought Acheron was bad, it has NOTHING on Styxx. Like a typical Kenyon it is worth it by the end, but what a journey to get there.

    Excellent job done by Fred Berman.

    Story
    "A Masterpiece, Must Have If You Loved Acheron"

    OMG!!! I did a marathon listen to this all weekend and went through emotional turmoil. I didn't think it was possible, but not only did Ms. Kenyon manage to redeem Styxx, she made me weep for him, cheer for him and love him almost as much as my beloved Acheron. It was an amazing journey. One that had my therapist (aka best friend) on speed dial when I couldn't take the injustices anymore. The story does a masterful job of showing the "three sides to every story" that Ash is so fond of saying. In this book, even Ash doesn't have all the answers and he has never looked more "human" and less "god like." Mr. Berman does a masterful job at this narration. He truly brings the characters to life. Who knew Greek gods would have an English accents. He brings so much emotion to the characters I pulled an all nighter b/c I just couldn't stop listening and being immersed in this world. Fabulous, just fabulous.

    I'll be honest, I was getting very bored with the Dark Hunters, but this book has revived my love of the series. The ending clearly implies more adventures with Ash, Styxx and the gang and I can't wait!!

    Story
    "AMAZING"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would! Its a story about how there are three sides to ever story, yours, theirs, and the truth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fulfilled all it's promises and more


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

    The voices are awesome even his Simi voice is nearly dead on to what you would expect her to really sound like.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Will make you cry! Emotionally draining you really feel for the characters involved.

    "Amazing..."
    What did you like best about this story?

    Like pretty much everyone else I had Judged Styxx without a thought to what might have been. To have that Mental image of the stuck-up prince remove was a sad yet wonderful thing for me as I had always prefered Styxx over his brother. And I am very happy over the result. :)


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't. First time I have listen to one of the Dark-Hunter Novel but I had read the rest so I had Voices and Images already thought in my mind. I am very please With Fred and how he Capture the voice and personalize each one to even better than what I had originally thought for some characters. I am very thrill and definitely plan on getting other Dark-Hunter book read by Fred even though I had Already read them :3


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book. May me cry Many Many Many times during and I don't do that easily with books, I'm just glad I have job that doesn't require people looking at me, otherwise I would have been ask many times if I was alright.
    This is my first review I am happy to have listen to this book <3
