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.

AMAZING book :) Awesome naration also!

Would you consider the audio edition of Acheron to be better than the print version?

I duno. For me, at the time, it was. i love being able to do art while i listen to books too, or listen in the car. you have a lot more freedom when you re listening rather then reading. Also the naration was really fantastic. i really like the guy she has chosen to do a lot of her narations.

What other book might you compare Acheron to and why?

i wouldn't really compare it. this book is a romantic story but i wouldnt actually call it ROMANCE. As with so many of Keyon's books, the story is adeptly woven and complex throughout many of her books. its so much more then a romance, Honestly, i wouldnt really compare it to any other books. I waited for years to read Ash's story, and i'm so glad i finally got too. I was NOT disapointed!

Which scene was your favorite?

I dunno, there were just to many to choose a favorite.

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

Yes, quite a few moments brought taers to my eyes, and made me laugh.Thats what a good book does. And since Sheri has been introducing us to Ash over MANY books, i felt very conected to him during his personal story.

Any additional comments?

just that this author is worth keeping an eye on. buy and read or listen to all of her books. She's very talented and even people who dont read romance love her work. because her work is not really "romance" its just far more then that. its paranormal fiction at its best :)

One of the Best Hero's you could wish for!

If you could sum up Acheron in three words, what would they be?

Strong, loyal and brave!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Acheron?

It's so hard to pick one moment. I like the moment Acheron let's Tory see his true eye color. It's one of the first time's you see him begain to trust in her. You get to see into his heart and need for her for the first time. On the other hand I like the moment when he has changed into his true God form and he feeds on Tory and kills her. Yeah, it sounds morbid, but it's one of the times you feel his dispair to the fullest. It broke my heart.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was the time Acheron used his staff to kill the demons during the fight at the end of the book. Why...all that power! OMG!

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

Yes! Yes! Yes! I even went out to buy the hard copy plus added this one to my mp3! I can't get enough of this listen!

Any additional comments?

Acheron and Zarek are the two dark hunter's that I like the most. I guess it's because of the life they both had to endure before becoming a dark hunter. Acheron was the one who made me cry for his pain. I could really feel his hurt which made me understand how he felt about the goodness that Zarek had inside. It gave me such insite to the other dark hunters.

This story will make you cry and laugh

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

Yes. The story was well written and the narrator did a fantastic job with bringing each characters to life.

What did you like best about this story?

The humor throughout the story. Without it, this would have been a VERY difficult story to listen to because of all the torture and abuse Acheron had to go through. <br/><br/>I also love Acheron. I know some people may think he is weak for not physically fighting back. However I admire him for his empathy, kindness and strength to continue holding on to his values and protect others.

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

Acheron. He did a great job of transitioning his voice from childhood to adult.<br/>

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

Yes. It was extremely difficult to listen to how much abuse Acheron had to go through.<br/>At the same time there was a lot of laugh out loud moments from the quick witted dialogues between the characters.

Any additional comments?

This story is a epic journey of Acheron's life. The first half of the book is in fact dedicated to how badly abused and neglected he was by people who was suppose to love and cherish him. I was unable to listen to all of it, I had to skip a good 4 hours of this insanity to get to the more happy stuff. This was the first audiobook I bought and I definitely it was worth the money.

Any additional comments?
