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.

    "loved it but..."

    I was very excited to finally fined out the howl story and unveil the mystery surrounding Ach. I enjoyed hearing about all my favorit caracters again. This book explaines a lot and is still great to lisent to with out having read the other books related to the story. And as always i love Kenyon sexy and funny style.
    But after chapter after chapter of violence and abuse of the mane caracter i grew tired and bored with all the free violence. Sure the scenery is well set and the caracters and places are wonderfull to read but PLEASE give the guy a break !!! Even the sex scenes become tire some after a time. So all in all this one is a 50/50 book to me. Harf love / harf ZZZzzzZZZ

    "Acheron"

    This is a amazing audiobok, so much so that I had trouble putting it down. The narrator is very talented and never struggles to make you hold your breath in anticipation.
    My only issue is that there are not more Sherrilyn Kenyon books on the audible.co.uk site when they are all on the audible.com.
    None the less, this is one book you will not regret purchasing

    Story
    "One of the most emotional books of the series"

    This book, out of all of them is the one that makes me cry. The story of his earlier life, the cruelty and abuse he suffers at the hands of family and friends. He is betrayed many times and still finds himself helpless and alone.

    His real mother did was she did to protect him but at the end of the day he has to learn to stand alone.

    "couldn't stop listening"

    This was my first book by the author. I am glad I was taken in by all of the hype. Even though the beginning of the book is tough to get through because of the hardship Ash goes through, it allows the reader to sympathize with Ash and love him more. Great narration!

    This is by far, the best book in the series. So many questions answered and the characters really come to life. I enjoyed it a great deal.

    "Yumm!"

    I love Kenyon's work. Always have and always will. In the past I have been more than a little disappointed by the clumsy, almost criminally bad narration used for some of her earlier titles. Now in walks Holter Graham and my long standing fancy for the dark, brooding and sexy Ash (Acheron) becomes a full blown crush! I absolutely adore this narrator and really loved the story. NEWBIES BEWARE- there are very strong tones of violence and sadistic childhood abuse in this and some other Kenyon titles. In Acheron's case it's fair to call this extreme and totally heart wrenching. There is also a healthy does of explicit sex. That said, all of the aforementioned ADULT content serves the plot impeccably and builds solid gold characters the reader can easily invest in. I literally wanted to throw my arms around some of these characters. Others I could get medieval on to stop their sadistic tendencies.
    All in all- I loved the story and from now on will have a special place in my heart for a certain Nickleback song (wink wink).

    "Amazing .. Finally."

    This book is several years overdue past its original deadline. I am pleased it when it finally arrived and it was not a disappointment. The audible book reader was *outstanding*. Fantastic. I was so pleased I also read the hard cover in addition to this audiobook. It is one of the few I have listened to multiple times. I can say that this is not an author whose work I display on my library shelves. Nor do I read her books over and over. But Acheron was excellent and I have listened to it repeatedly.

    Some parts are rather sad and sometimes I skip those but the book, overall I have been terribly pleased with it. I think the audible reader's vocal talents are to be highlighted.

    With the added flavor of the vocal talents of the actor, it took it over the top. Most of the feedback and reviews that were critical of the amount of pages devoted to the miserable beginning of Acherons life. That criticism was pretty scathing. Too little page percentage weighted for happier in balance with his overall lifetime. While it was an a sad life, and I would have liked it to have been a bit happier, I think people need to ease up. I am just glad the story has finally been told. This author has been dribbling out tidbits about this character for over a decade and now the meat and potatoes arrived.

    In fact, I'd like to see another book on Acheron. I loved it.

    This book was awesome and explained things from previous books. The reader, Holter Graham, was wonderful and I hope he is the reader for other Sherrilyn Kenyon books as wells as Christine Feehan.

    "Satisfying, but with a few flaws."

    Acheron gets his HEA, and basically that is what all of us DarkHunter fans have been wanting for a long time. Unfortunately, Kenyon takes more than half of the book and devotes it to excruciating details of Ash's past. And, oh do I mean excruciating. If you don't like pain, don't read or listen to this book. It was hard to take sometimes, but it does explain what and why Acheron is. As for the narration, Holter did wonderfully, but I was thrown off by him pronouncing Ash's name as Asheron instead of Akeron as he did in Devil May Cry. Also, the Gallu demon who was the bad guy in DMC didn't have an accent in Acheron. The only thing I truly didn't like was that so many characters were repeatedly and unneccesarily stupid and/or cruel. It was kind of like Kenyon didn't think we'd get it, so she decided to bludgeon us over the head repeatedly that Ash had a horrible life.

    "Phew...That was some book!!!!!!"

    Incredible!! Outstanding!! I was emotionally exhausted at the end of the book. Sherrilyn Kenyon outdid herself with this one. Although the brutality with Acheron was...maybe...too much information at times...you had to feel the pain THOROUGHLY to understand what he was about. I was overwhelmed with emotion at the end. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT book!!!!!

    Wow! This book was great! It had me crying, it had me angry, laughing and finally very happy with the outcome.
    I have to say, this is one of the best books I've read in a long time. If you are looking a book that has a little of everything and a very good and detailed story, this book needs to be your choice.
