Okay, I just finised book #15 in the Dark-Hunter series. This one was ACHERON. In all the previous books his character was weaved in and out, revealing a little snippet about him here and there, but never understanding or knowing who or what he truly was or how he came to be. This has been the driving force behind how quickly I’ve been reading these books because I NEEDED to get to this book and know all about him.
I started this 800 page book on Sunday night after our LOST party and I think I’ve picked it up every single free minute I’ve had. Today I didn’t even eat, because I just had to finish the book, and now that I have I felt moved to post about it. (Don’t worry, no spoilers) This book broke my heart over and over again and I literally cringed and cried for him. I gasped in surprise many times and I saw how his horrific past shaped Ash into the thoughtful and guarded and caring character that we’ve seen in the previous books. This has been a book that I had been dying to read and now I love his character even more than I had before. It shows that the “human” spirit can endure and love reigns supreme.
So if you’re reading the series, hang on & don’t read them out of order because it would ruin the suspense you feel leading up to this book! I also see that Sherrilyn Kenyon has finished this “arc” of the story with Acheron at the center and has now introduced another character, Jaden. He will be that mysterious type character for this next section of the series just as Ash was for the first 15 books and I’m excited to learn about him now! Okay, only 3 more books until I’m caught up and waiting with the rest of the DH fans for the newest book, “No Mercy”, to release in 70 days.
Now I can’t wait to have the Acheron doll on my shelf with the book displayed behind him!
