I've never been a fan of going backwards in time. Sherrilyn Kenyon has been one of my favourite authors for a long time, but I didn't really enjoy this one. Confusing I.e hard to follow, and although there was mention of the dark hunters this really didn't have a lot to do with them.

It seemed like SK started with one female for the main role and decided to change her mind half way through.

This book did have the pull of SK older books. The language was a bit clunky with trying to be old pirate talk.

I really didn't like this and regret buying it. I really had hope the author had given us something to atone herself for Dragonmark, but alas she has not. I couldn't get into the storyline, I didn't like the characters at all, and there was nothing likeable about any of them. I had hoped this series would give us some insight into Thorn and some of the others, but it just raises more questions. I really struggled to read this; I had to force myself to in the hopes that it would improve. I am fast losing interest in what started out as a great idea and series.

Rating~ 4.5 stars

Deadmen Walking is the first book in the Deadmen's Cross triology, a historical spin off from Dark-Hunter and the hell-hounds universe and Oh my this was such a great read and a fantastic start to the trilogy!

Captain Devyl Bane used to be an evil warlord and is currently the dead Captain of the ship, sailing of to save the gates that will unleash hell on earth if the gates open. The gates are keeping the evil and ancient gods bend on destruction and chaos. He and his crew made a pact with Thorn to protect the seas and keep the gates from opening. On their mission they end up picking up a human who seems to have strange medallion and wants to find her brother.  His ship, the sea witch happens to be the one woman who hates his existence probably about the same as his ex-wife, Marcelina. Bound together as they are in life, Mara and Devyl have a very complicated relationship spanning years and death.

It's such a surreal concept of having a ship that actually also a woman, a very powerful woman at that but it's done in a such a fantastic way that it makes sense. I really liked Mara and Devyl together, Devyl is a anti-hero and bit suicidal with his thoughts of getting back at his ex-wife but his behaviour and the love he felt only endeared him more to me (and to Mara). It's a classic tale of enemies to lovers apart from the fact they on quest to save humanity and are dead themselves :P .  Their relationship is pretty well developed and I really that we get to see how they met and how over the years the relationship had changed.

Over the last view years I’ve read three books by Sherrilyn Kenyon. And although I haven’t been swept away by her stories I did enjoy all three of them. So when I was approached to read this first book in her new Deadman’s Cross series I was definitely interested. Even more when I read that this book was about pirates, definitely something that sparked my interest.

In ‘Deadman Walking’ we meet Devyl Bane, an ancient dark warlord who now is one of the most notorious pirates. Although he is supposedly very evil, it’s clear early on that there is much more about this Devyl than we first get to see. And that becomes more clear when we meet Marcelina, a Sea Witch that is forced to life with Devyl due to a binding spell. Although they have enough trouble and history between the two of them, together with their unusual crew they are humanity’s last hope to restore the gates of hell.

In the beginning I found myself being very intrigued by this read. There was so much going on, and I loved the whole pirates part. And Devyl was definitely a character I enjoyed reading about. He was very evil, aggressive and grumpy, but I just knew there was so much more about him. And I loved getting to know him and his weird crew of witches, mermaids and other creatures.

Half way through the book things got a little more confusing. Throughout the book a lot of different creatures started appearing, with their different histories and abilities. And there were a lot of different names. And as I’ve told in earlier reviews, I’m really bad in keeping names a part. And in this book there were so many that I couldn’t follow it all the time.

And then there was the world building, there was a lot to keep track of. And to me it was honestly a little too much.

My first foray in to the imagination of Sherrilyn Kenyon and it takes me to the high seas of old. Its like Pirates of the Caribbean with considerably more supernatural sexiness.

The wonderfully named Devyl Bane is the captain of a rather special ship, his crew are not all there, literally, they are all dead. Devyl is a man with a long past, a past filled with betrayal and in this first book of the Deadmen's Cross series we learn a little about his past and of course his very colourful crew.

The story starts with a young woman searching for her brother, she enlists the help of Devyl and his crew and together they set off to try and find out what happened to her brother. Of course the path to her brother is lined with demons, nasty sea creatures and women scorned.

Without giving any spoilers I will say this is a fun story that is easy to lose some hours in, my only complaint was there was a heck of a lot of characters and I did get a little lost especially as a couple go by different names. There is also a lot of info to take in but of course this book is setting the scene for future books.

For fans of bad boys, living and undead, this will be for you.

Thank you to Piatkus for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.
