Publisher's Summary

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.

Absoluetly Amazing

What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

Fred Berman's performance reading this book was great, he was able to distinguish the characters.

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

I was kept in suspense and anticipation with each chapter.

Any additional comments?

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.

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 (Word for Word) From Styxx

If you could sum up House of the Rising Son in three words, what would they be?

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

What do you think your next listen will be?

Chronicles of Nick

What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

Wonderful

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

Yes, I love the DH series

Any additional comments?

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.
