well worth the wait,
This review is from: Acheron (Dark-Hunter World) (Paperback)
Well this book seems to be a long time coming but it was definently worth the wait. All the other Dark Hunter novels seemed to be building to this one book.
I was aprhensive when I opened the book and as with a lot of Sherrilyn Kenyon fans I was wondering whether this book would live up to all the hype. Well let me tell you - It does!!!
However it is important to read the authors note at the beginning, before you even start reading Ash's story, otherwise you will be shocked though in no way disappointed. Kenyon tell us that the first part of this book is not written in her usual style, although she does reassure us that the second modern day part of the book brings back that gold star humour.
Part one of the book had me holding my breath and close to tears.It is set eleven thosand years ago and tells of Ash's life before he became the leader of the Dark Hunter. Who his mother is and what his fate is going to be!!
It is beautifully written, heart wrenching and brutally realistic. Ash's life before he died is not for the weak hearted, he is abused and hurt in unbelievable ways. But this is what made Ash the person he is in the second part of the book.
Part two of the book is classic Sherrilyn Kenyon, humouros, fast paced, action packed with just the right amount of steamy seduction and romance. Ash is a complex character, who has a lot of baggage, his heroine is a feisty history loving woman. Their relationship starts of rather rocky but it soon gets moving.
Acheron is a fantastic book, I don't want to give away any of the plot but I flew through the book, I was still reading at 4 in the morning, but it was worth the bleary eyes the next morning.
I am now eagrely awaiting the next installment.
